It’s hard not to be jealous of those women who never have to buy a maternity coat. “When I was pregnant, I just bought a jacket one size up.” Shoot.
But if you’re one of us who can’t get away with wearing a “slightly larger coat” during your pregnancy, this post is for you! If you’re due between November and April, you may need to find yourself a proper coat.
Our first piece of advice on maternity coats is to buy a used one if you have the time to shop around. Try looking at your local consignment stores, thrift shops, or even Salvation Army. Or try shopping online at eBay or ThredUP. A third option is to rent a jacket from sites like Mine For Nine or Stitch Fix Maternity.
If you can’t find a used maternity coat, finding a new one that’s reasonably affordable is your best bet. Today, we’re sharing the best maternity coats!

Gap Maternity Hooded Frost-Free Long-Line Puffer Jacket
Starting off is this stylish (yet functional!) padded jacket. Its faux fur collar trim adds an element of style, while the micro fleece lining is sure to keep you warm. This coat will go with everything!
Motherhood Maternity Removable Waist Tie French Terry Maternity Peacoat
This coat is so comfortable to wear! Made soft materials, it’s non-restraining and easily stretches for comfort. Since there’s a tie waist, you won’t be constricted by the tightness of a zipper that a normal coat has. Lots of room for your belly to grow, and you might even wear it after you have your baby because it doesn’t look like a maternity coat at all. Reviewers have said this coat is very flattering to wear on a pregnant figure!
ASOS DESIGN Maternity Classic Trench Coat
If you live in a warmer climates, a classic trench coat like this one from ASOS is all you need for the fall and winter. It’s also a great coat if you feel like you’re always over-heated and so you need minimal layers. This jacket goes with so many outfits and never goes out of style.
Old Navy Maternity Funnel-Neck Cheetah-Print Coat
Featuring an all-over cheetah print that’s become so popular lately, this affordable topper from Old Navy is made of a soft, wool-blend fabric, with smooth taffeta lining. You’ll have plenty of room to grow in this coat, plus it has a fun fuzzy texture. If cheetah print’s not your thing, Old Navy also sells this in solid black or tan.
Motherhood Maternity Quilted Puffer Maternity Coat
This fashionable jacket from Motherhood Maternity is machine-washable and perfect for the crisp fall weather! Says one reviewer, “I love this jacket. I needed a jacket to fit my bust as that also increased in size much faster than my belly, rather than purchase a regular one I decided to go for a maternity since I will eventually need one anyway. It looks great even with having a smaller bump right now and has plenty of room to grow with the stretchy side panels. I have worn it with a popover and t-shirt and it layers perfectly.”
