It’s that time of year where I buy my winters coat, every single November, just before bonfire night I always get myself a new coat. To some it’s probably ludicrous to buy a brand new one every year, whilst some buy several every few months. For me though, one winters coat see’s me through the rest of autumn and all of winter so it serves me well.
I’m a plus size curvy girl, so for those of you out there who too are perhaps a little top or bottom heavy, and find coat shopping difficult or maybe have been unable to find something you like, don’t worry.. I have you covered! Whilst I have now chosen my coat this year (its last on the list I’m about to show you!) there were also some other great contenders, so I hope you enjoy this post & manage to find it helpful! 💗
1. Grey Faux Fur Collar Bouclé Coat – Newlook – £49.99
Available in sizes 18-32, I really love the style of this coat. It’s grey, which is very on trend at the moment, I love the fur collar the most.. but I think what ultimately put me off buying this in the end, was the material perhaps not being sustainable in bad weather. Also I worried it looked a little too grannyish? If that’s even a thing. What do you reckon?
2. Vero Moda Curve Oversized Teddy Coat – ASOS – £70
I’m going to be totally honest, ASOS have let me down big time this year with their curve range- last year was a lot lot better, however Teddy Coats are really in at the moment with everyone wanting one, and I liked this one by ASOS at £70. Again, what put me off was the idea it resembled some sort of carpet or rug, as well as obviously getting completely soaked in the rain. Available from sizes 18-24 with free delivery.
3. Plus Belted Faux Fur Hooded Puffer – Boohoo – £49
Okay, so whilst I’m not a personal fan of boohoo curve due to their horrendous sizing, they do have some really stunning pieces throughout the year and some great bargains too. This coat caught my eye and would make a great staple piece to your winter wardrobe I think, priced at £49 with 99p next day delivery, this coat is available in sizes 16-24.
4. Black Longline Wet Look Puffa Coat – YoursClothing – £85.99
Yours Clothing is always my last resort when picking out a winter coat, because I’ll be honest (as always!) however nice something may look on their website (if it looks nice at all) you can bet your life on it, it won’t look the same in person.. so that’s why I’d strongly suggest if you’re shopping from Yours, to go in store and try something on and see it for yourself rather than just buy it online and hate it when it comes. I always find winter coats from Yours come with absolutely no shape and aren’t flattering at all, however this was the best of the bunch this season in my opinion.. in sizes 16-36, you’ll most likely have a lot of room to play around with, and this looks a lot more fitting than majority of them do!
5. Khaki Parker With Detachable Faux Fur – Simply Be – £70
I really really love this coat, and for Simply Be which is renowned to be quite dated with their pieces in the past, this is super on trend and made it to my top 3 coats this year. Available in sizes 10-30 – I absolutely love the fur trim, but Tazmyn wasn’t keen on the colour of the fur, so maybe that’s why I went against it in the end. Also it looks quite fitting as well giving you that flexibility with shape, always a bonus!
6. JunaRose Ola Pink Fur Trim Parka – Very – £100
This was in my final two when making the decision on what coat to get this year. I LOVE the pink fur hood, but for the price I would have wanted some more shape to it, where as this doesn’t look flattering around the waist what’s so ever which always puts me off, available in sizes 14-28 – I personally think this is very on trend, maybe just a bit pricy for what it actually is?
7. Plus Black Faux Fur Trim Longline Parka – River Island £115
The winter coat of dreams, and the one I ended up going for this year. Stunning much? Obviously there’s a running theme with the type of coats I like, being the oversized fur hooded trim, and it really stands out with this one. It is pricy at £115 but I did manage to find an online discount code for river island, so if you do end up going for this one or another from River Island, let me know and I can give you that code. River Island though, are absolutely smashing it right now, when aren’t they? I want the entire collection, and I deserve this coat this season so it’s a treat to myself. Sizes range from 18-28.
So there you have it, my top picks for plus size coats this season. I hope this has helped you in shopping for the perfect winter coat for those cold days and even colder evenings.
