Great winter coats for Curves

As winter rears its ugly, frosty and freezing cold head, it’s time to wrap up warm with a gorgeous winter coat. To help you find the perfect one, I’ve scoured the high street and some specialist online stores for the most flattering, eye-catching and comfortable styles. From sharp military styles to classic belted trenches, hopefully there’s something to suit (and to fit) everyone…

Your coat needn’t be boring just because you’ve got a few curves. Don’t be afraid to try out bright colours, bold styles, frills, embellishment and chic detailing. Just pick carefully and choose something that has one major detail, not everything! Evans’ hot pink coat is kept modern with a visible zip and simple trapeze shape, while George at Asda’s frilled neckline works wonders for a basic belted black number.

If it’s your bust that causes problems, try Bravissimo’s black coat in really or super-curvy for extra room around the top, or go for a double-breasted raspberry trench from M&S to make the most of a great waist. All these coats are under £100 and come in a good range of sizing, so what’s stopping you?

    Great picks–I adore the coat with the frilled neckline! However, I’m not so sure about a double breasted coat for busty girls like myself. In my experience, they do tend to give a lot of bulk to the top half of the body.

    Good point, I think perhaps bustier girls are better off with single-breasted v necks. But double breasted does have its advantages – the double coverage over the belly can have a bit of a shapewear-ish effect, holding everything in. And the buttons don’t gape so much as they do on lighter single-breasted pieces. I think the trick with coats is just to try LOADS on, and to consider buying a size bigger (particularly with a belted one) so there’s room for winter clothing underneath!
