The theory that pregnant women don’t get cold is a myth. It’s more like pregnant women don’t want to spend money on a jacket they’ll wear for a season, so they layer up and wait for spring. But Mamaway has designed brilliant winter coats that can be worn during pregnancy, over a baby carrier, and long after your kids have grown-up. How does it achieve this feat of transforming fashion? With a zip-off front panel. So clever, so simple.
Mamaway’s stylish maternity coat and vest range includes cosy 90 per cent down parkas and jackets (currently on sale at $109.95) and windbreakers. Every design has an ingenious front panel that zips into the jacket’s zipper. As your belly grows, so does your jacket, and when your winter baby is born, you can keep her warm inside your jacket in her baby carrier.
The front panel has a length of gathering near the bottom which serves two purposes. It stops wind from blowing up your jacket, and it gives the coat a pretty shape.
Jackets and vests come in traditional quilted puffer styles, hooded parkas, or gorgeous windbreakers that are perfect for wearing in spring and autumn. There’s a rainbow of colours to choose from, but we love a versatile neutral like the down parka in khaki green (sale price of $179.95), or the windbreaker in navy (sale price of $79.95).
Mamaway’s jackets and vests, as well as the entire maternity collection, are available online, and at the time of writing are on sale. If you spend over $50, shipping in Australia is free.
