Being pregnant can have its challenges, however keeping warm in chilly (or downright frigid) weather does not have to be one of them. Maternity designers have created coats that you can wear throughout pregnancy and after. Or, if you already have a favourite winter coat, some great Canadian companies have come up with innovative products that will extend your coat to keep you warm and cozy throughout your pergnancy.
Winter coats: the investment piece
The Mcoat was one of the first winter coats developed for pregnant women. This coat, insulated with pure Canadian down, is popular because of its adaptability. A zip out triangular panel faces down when you are pregnant and is flipped over for baby carrying. The panel can also be removed after pregnancy and The MCoat can be worn as a forever piece.
Coat panels: the practical solution
The BellyFit coat extender uses the zippers on your existing coat and their patented panel to create space where you need it most. It has a sleek look that features snaps along the panel so that you can tailor your coat both during pregnancy and for baby carrying. They feature the most commonly used zipper by outwear manufacturers (like Canada Goose) so that it will fit into as many coats as possible. If your coat features a different zip, worry not! There are 16 zipper adapters available that will match the BellyFit to your coat. The panel is made with two layers of windproof/water repellent outerwear material with a layer of cozy microfleece in between.
This coat extender system also comes in two lengths which allows you to choose the fit and style you want for your coat. Snaps and an adjustable belt create an empire waist or show-off-your-bump look. The Bridge the Bump system is made with a water repellent/windproof outerwear material and quilted microfibre insulation. And of course, the insert can be worn for baby carrying as well. Panel colours are specifically chosen to match Canada Goose coats.
With such a wide range of practical solutions, you and your baby bump are sure to be warm and cozy during the Winter season. Come by the store or give us a call and we will help you figure out the coat solution that’s best for you.
