    i just got mine on sat, not maternity but the style goes out at the bottom so fits bumps nicely, and has room for expanding bump. Black from bhs :D

    i had the same problem none of my pre-pregnancy jackets would do up :(
    so i went to primark on the weekend and bought a jacket 2 sizes bigger than i normally would so that it would do up and last me the rest of the pregnancy, i didnt want to spend alot for something i wouldnt wear for long. the button comes just under the bust so it just goes over my bump :)

    I've seen quite a nice swing-style coat in Primark. It's £21 but it's got a purple check-type pattern on it and I really wanted a plain one. I'm going to try it at lunch time and see how I like it.

    I've been avoiding this issue and hoping I can hold out, but since we woke up this morning to a ton of snow I think I'm going to have to go check around :( I didn't want to with 6 weeks left. I agree though, the swing-style is the way to go.

    I know what you mean, I need something to wear but refuse to buy a maternity coat as so many are so expensive! I can get my long wool coat to fasten at the top so that'll have to do me! Only three more weeks of needing to look smartish for work and then I can wear anything that'll go round me without caring! lol

    I want a really nice warm winter maternity coat. I don't like jackets or those swing-style ones (they make me feel like I'm wearing a tent). I haven't seen a single long coat that looks warm and with a price I can justify :cry:

    This one looks nice: http://www.yummymummymaternity.co.uk/cream-maternity-knitted-coat-327-p.asp but is too expensive and I don't normally "do" cream coloured clothes.

    I may just have to invest in a couple of good maternity cardigans and wrap up under my current winter coat without doing it up.
