What to Look for When Buying a Maternity Coat

Longevity

While a good maternity coat will go a long way, you want a coat that will last as long as possible. First and foremost, you want to purchase a maternity coat that will fit throughout your pregnancy and after birth during the fourth trimester. Some maternity clothes are already expensive, so finding a coat that will last you a long time ensures you’re saving money in the long run. 

When shopping for maternity clothes, you’ve probably heard it’s best to buy the size you currently wear or a size up. You don’t want to buy clothes that are too big because once you’ve given birth, they may not fit the same and could end up being baggy on you. Try your normal size first to see how it fits and once you’ve had baby, the coat will still end up working during the fourth trimester. 

Seasonal

Before purchasing a maternity coat, consider all seasons you will be pregnant in. This will help you decide on what type of coat to look for, whether it be a raincoat for the spring or a puffer for the winter. Picking the right type of coat for the season you’re shopping for will ensure you don’t overheat or stay too cold.

Look for a more lightweight coat for fall and spring seasons but a heavier coat during the winter months. For example, during spring, a raincoat would be your best option as they’re waterproof and versatile. For those cold months, coats with a heavier material, like polyester, will keep you warm the most. 

Adjustable

Just like other maternity clothing, maternity coats often feature an adjustable panel. It’s no secret your bump will grow as you near your second and third trimester, so staying comfortable is key. And the key to staying comfortable in a maternity coat is finding one that gives you breathing room with additional features, like an adjustable waistband. Some of these panels can even be removed, giving you the most bang for your buck.

You can create the size you need for your bump and not have to worry about your coat being too tight and uncomfortable. Check out wrap coats if you’re looking for coats that give you room to grow as those can be tied with a belt yet leave you fully covered when chilly.
