Maternity coats

We scoured the Mumsnet Style and Beauty boards to find the best maternity jackets for this season:

JoJo Maman Bébé 2-in-1 Padded Parka, £79

If you're looking for some bang for your buck, you could do worse than this padded maternity coat. Designed for use throughout your pregnancy and beyond, it's a real investment. With a removable panel that can be added or shelved according to your changing shape, the coat can also be zipped multiple ways. Its soft padding and detachable hood are the pièce de résistance.

What Mumsnetters say:

“With an insert you can zip in or take out, it can be worn for years after pregnancy. For me, that's a huge plus.”

Seraphine Cashmere Blend Coat, £195

If you're going all out, coats don't get much more luxurious than this. Made from virgin wool, it was the maternity coat of choice for Kate Middleton – that's right, actual royalty. With a sleek, straight cut and a flattering empire line, it can be worn during and after pregnancy – so if you're looking for a general coat to invest in, this timeless number is a worthy choice.

What Mumsnetters say:

“I'd strongly recommend it. It's so lovely, and was a good investment as I desperately needed a winter coat anyway. If you have a job where you need to look smart, it's ideal.”

Mamalicious Parka, £65

Mamalicious Parka

With its contrasting grey hood and drawstring waist, it's easy to fall in love with this pretty green parka. Brilliantly versatile, throw it on with your wellies for protection against April showers, or over a spring dress when the sun's (intermittently) shining. It's also designed to fit you from bump to baby – score.

What Mumsnetters say:

“I decided to invest in this one and I'm so glad. I'm due in late January and will no doubt wear it for a long time afterwards.”

Next Wadded Jacket, £58

If you're planning on wading through the muddy countryside anytime soon, consider this Next maternity coat. With its fleece-lined pockets, shower resistant finish and internal hood, there isn't much that this jacket can't withstand. It also comes with a removable panel for extra room during pregnancy. Genius.

What Mumsnetters say:

“This jacket is great. It wasn't particularly cheap but I plan to sell it on eBay afterwards to recoup a bit of the cost. For now, I love it.”

ASDA Khaki Shower Resistant Parka, £15

Asda Khaki Maternity Coat

A tidy £15 in the sale, this maternity parka coat comes equipped with a lined hood, secure zip, and two handy press-stud pockets. Waterproof but lightweight, you'll be able to wear it from spring to autumn – just pop some cosy knitwear on underneath in chillier weather.

What Mumsnetters say:

“Brilliant coat. It comes with a zip-out panel that makes it into a regular parka to be worn after the baby arrives. It's a similar design to much pricier coats I've come across.”

Bonprix Hooded Coat, £64.99

Bon Prix

Both stylish and highly functional, this pretty coat is available in pink, charcoal and maroon. Complete with zips at the side which allow you to adjust the fit, it also has a layered hood and deep side pockets.

What Mumsnetters say:

“After much trial and error, I bought one from Bonprix online. It's just been great, with plenty of room for the bump.”

Topshop Herringbone Coat, £40

Topshop Heringbone

Topshop is a safe bet for fashion-forward designs, this herringbone coat being no exception. Follow this model's styling for a gloriously polished look, pairing it with gold hoops, a turtleneck and some classic ankle boots.

What Mumsnetters say:

“At around £50, it was brilliant – worth every penny. I wore it for months after giving birth, too.”
