    and the problem is last year i brought this beautiful coat in a size , lovely white long coat and i adore it and it WAS so warm. But now i cant do the buttons up anymore lol and when i do manage to get one done up it just looks stupid. If my coat was red id look like bloody sanat clause lol :rofl:. And i really dont see the point in buying another coat because i havn't got long left and it would just be a waste

    Any one else having this. And any idea how to stop my self from freezing when i gout out lol??

    i was the same last year. couldnt do any of my nic ecoats up and ended up just wearing my old fleece. You havent got too long left so i wouldnt bother getting another coat.

    just layer up.

    I'm the same hun, 'cos I'm being induced around 37-38 weeks, I've onyl got 7 or 8 weeks left, and I resent paying for a coat I can only wear for a bit!!!

    I just put a few layers on, then wear my coat without doing it up. If it's freezing like today, I just put on a long scarf to cover the gap!!!!

    There are some nice (and not too expensive!) chunky knits around this season.... maybe one of those would do the trick?

    If it makes you feel any better, they said today that this is just a cold "snap" and it won't last long. So if your due soon, you'll probably get away with just layering for a few weeks.

    I'm just going to use a nice long and wide scarf to make up for the gap where I can't close up my normal coat. It seems silly to fork out for a coat that will only last a few weeks.

    I have a long double breasted coat and just fasten the top set of buttons. I don't much care what I look like! My intention is not to go out too much!
