    I looked for ages, and the best ones I could see were from TopShop or Red Herring, but they weren't in the shops. They were last seasons styles being sold on Ebay. Even brand new they were only £40-£50.:happydance:

    I have been looking too,I don't want to spend tons on a maternity coat.
    I got a long cardigan type thick wool from Mothercare,its doing ok at keeping me warm,though I would like to get hold of a jacket.

    I've been using last years coat with a sweater underneath, leaving belly area buttons undone. Then I use a belt underneath my bust to give me some form. (I'm pregnant, not dead, after all). I've actually gotten some nice compliments about the look!

    Hi girls
    My hubby brought me a great coat last week in the Debenhams sale, it was £56 reduced from £70 - its just black has 3 buttons and I can wear to work as well as casual
    He got some big brownie points for that purchase, especially the other day in the freezing cold [and snow!]
    The make is Red Herring Maternity

    I have a coat like this too, mines a swing style black coat, also Red Herring Maternity, got 2 sets of 3 black buttons down the front. Very nice. Mine was £55 from the new range I think but so far very worth it!

    I've just got a normal coat in a bigger size, I got a size 20 so it should do me right through winter!

    It's a South padded parka coat, was brand new with tags from e-Bay and I got it for £10.49!

    I'm on the hunt for a 'nice' coat now, I did see a gorgeous Next swing coat on eBay, brand new again, but I forgot the bidding was ending and missed it, damn!

    That wasn't maternity, but will do the job just as well as a swing coat will accommodate a bump quite easily! xxx

    Ive just bought a military style coat from Topshop for £65.00

    I didn't want to spend loads on a maternity coat that I would only wear for a few months, especially when I have nice non-maternity coats and jackets that I bought last winter that I can't fit into, so I got a double breasted military style coat which only buttons halfway down, so has room for the bump - it was £17 in Primark! Had to get one 2 sizes bigger than my 'normal' size because of my boobs, but for £17 if I never wear it again after Feb it's done it's job!

    I got two coats from Primark - both swing style with 3/4 sleeves (I have short arms!) One is a longish grey wool style and the other is a short black jacket! £17 and £13! Perfect fit over the bump and will probably last me til well after the birth as there is plenty room to expand but also looks fine on a non-pg figure!
