I’ve always been jealous of those people who boast about never having to buy maternity coats. “No, I just buy one a size bigger than normal, hehehe.”
There’s NO WAY I could have worn a “slightly larger coat” with the torpedo that was jutting out of my belly. Hence, if your due date falls between November and April, you may need to find yourself a proper coat [ahem].
My first piece of advice, if you have the time to search around, is to buy used. This could be anything from Salvation Army to eBay to ThredUP and Poshmark to local consignment stores. I had very little luck finding anything used with my first pregnancy (due in February, brrrr) but found a nice used coat for my second. Persistence pays off.
If you’re in the market for a new coat for your pregnancy, we have compiled a list to help you find the best one — we covered everything from cheap to chic.
11 Awesome Maternity Coats for Winter 2021/22
A cozy parka that will take you from bump to baby in style… and without breaking the bank! Score! Note that it runs large, so you may want to size down.
Not all heroes wear capes? But some do… This one comes with a zip-off kangaroo panel so you can keep baby warm when using a baby carrier. We love how elegant and versatile this piece is, without trying too hard.
This is a solid choice for mamas-to-be who want to keep it simple with a coat that goes with everything. The Momo Maternity parka is a solid choice, though note some people complain that the zipper is finicky.
Can you tell we love sherpa? This Teddy coat comes at a more affordable price than Hatch’s, and the brown hue is a nice, on-trend color this year. Perfect to wrap your bump warm all winter long.
A puffer with an extender panel that is nursing friendly? Yes please. We love a good functional maternity coat. This one from Nordstrom will go with everything.
Robin Maternity Coat ~ $170
A maternity coat that doesn’t look like one. This number adjusts to your growing belly with a drawstring. We also love that the fur is removable so you can go for two different looks.
This is probably our most versatile pick. This cozy down jacket has a detachable panel for the bump and a baby carrier… and zip-off sleeves so it converts into a vest! Genius and great for layering in fall and winter.
This long puffer is classic, but also boasts a modern barely-there oversized silhouette. The length is perfect for more extreme temperature drops, keeping not only your bump but also your legs warm.
This maternity parka will outdate your pregnancy days. With its zip-off kangaroo panel, you will be able to use it while wearing your baby — perfect to keep the bump and baby warm during the colder months.
Need a classic, timeless coat that you can dress up and down? This wool coat is an investment piece that will take you from playdates to the office for years to come. We love the self-tie belt to accentuate the bump, which will also come in handy when babywearing. Currently on sale!
Hatch Coco Coat ~ $378
Hide out from the wind with this teddy coat from Hatch. We love the cuffed sleeves to keep the cold air out, and the oversized look is on trend. It opens and closes with two snaps, which gives a lot of room for your belly to grow. A timeless piece that will stay with you for the long haul.
That’s all, ladies. Stay warm out there!!
