By now, you’ve probably heard about Orolay’s best-selling jacket, often referred to as “The Amazon Coat” (currently $73-$104 on AmazonOpens a new window, depending on your size and style). But moms-to-be have a life hack: It’s the perfect maternity coat. While we love outerwear that’s made to grow with your bump, we’re always on the lookout for non-maternity items that work before, during, and after pregnancy.
For starters, the coat is relatively affordable and reviewers are constantly impressed by just how cozy it keeps them during harsh winters. The side pockets allow you to stretch your coat by a few more inches. And in the postpartum stage, you can zip it back down for a more snug fit.
With more than 16,000 five-star reviewsOpens a new window on Amazon, this coat lives up to the hype. Here are a few of the things that moms-to-be have shared on Amazon.
“I was so skeptical of an affordable garment with so many positive reviews, but I can’t imagine a better coat for the price. The bonus is that it’s versatile enough to wear through my pregnancy, but stay in my closet permanently.”
“After searching high and low for a reasonably-priced winter coat to wear during my second and third trimesters, this one takes the cake! It is ACTUALLY WARM, something I couldn’t vouch for with any of the other ‘maternity coats’ I tried.”
“This jacket is extremely warm and has gotten me through Michigan winters. I even get hot sometimes when wearing this jacket on walks on winter nights. I’m now pregnant and planned to purchase a different maternity/baby wearing jacket but realized I think this jacket will still work because of the side zippers which expand the jacket size.”
“It allows for up to 3 to 4 inches of extra width. There are also buttons in the front that can be popped open for extra, extra room.”
This coat is available in sizes XXS to 5XL and there are 13 different colors and styles, so you can find the item that best fits your needs. As previously noted, it’s currently up to 41 percent off as part of Amazon’s Black Friday Sale. So if you need a maternity-friendly winter coat, you’ll want to snap this up before it sells out. Choose from a more neutral gray or black, or opt for a bold yellow or on-trend camo print.
