    Am I the only one whos really struggling to find a maternity coat?!
    Im still quite early on (13weeks) But my coat doesn't fit me any more and by christmas I should have a growing bump and need a coat that grows with me too!
    Has anyone seen any maternity coats around?
    I can't find one anywhere!:hissy:
    Thanks

    What I like about the 2nd one is that it has a panel you can zip out, so you can use it after LO is born too!!
    Bargain!!!

    do you have a debenhams near you? i know they are selling a coupe instore in the debenhams near me but they are expensive, i went to asda and bought a coat in a bigger size and i cant explain it but it sort of goes out so should fit till nearly term and i can just do up the top two buttons and leave the others undone if not lol

    i couldnt find one anywhere but got a nice "normal" one in New Look for £55, just the style of it suited the purpose! Double breasted with buttons only @ bust - the lower part is open so plenty of room for expansion!!

    there are soooo few shops that actually stock their maternity ranges around here it's depressing!

    This is my 4th baby and I have never needed a maternity coat. I wear a hoody and lots of layers. I think the coats are so voer priced. Try eBay as they have loads and you pick up a good one for about £30 too xxx

    Thanks for your replies ladies!
    Yes I know! I really love the ones on NewLook but don't have any decent sizes!!
    Going to have to travel and go to a BIG store!

    I think the ideal coat would be swing but a long-ish one so it covers my growing BUM!! That seems to be getting bigger than my Tum!! hehe
