I've been looking online and I'm yet to find one that I like that i'd be prepared to pay through the nose for, too. The choice is crap this year.

Still, not to worry, you have your lovely new car's heating to keep you toasty this winter, Misdee

Dont buy coats from M&S, otherwise you will because you will then see every middleaged woman in the hightst wearing the same one all winter long. [embarrassed]

TK Maxx?

dont want to risk ebay, as i have found with boobs this big, it can be hit and miss with sizes.

I agree Misdee. With something as expensive as a winter coat, you need to be able to try it on ad get a real feel for the fit and style.

There coats are nice, (is it the burgundy one?) Last year I bought what I thought was a quite youngish trendy black and white coat, then had the misfortune of seeing women 20 years older than me wearing it everywhere I went.
