It’s no secret that the weather has definitely taken a chilly turn and with this belly of mine getting bigger by the day and the days of squeezing into my stretchy size 10s are numbered for sure. I’ve fallen in love with maternity jeans and leggings and thank goodness for H&M vest tops and baggy jumpers but the one thing I have been struggling to get into is my faithful parka jacket. Sadly that zip just keeps getting harder to fasten so when Yummy Mummy Maternity contacted me to ask whether I would like to review something from their winter collection I couldn’t say yes faster.
They kindly sent me a Tikka Padded Double Zipped Maternity & Beyond Hooded Winter Coat in black.
At the moment I am wearing it without the extra zip section (super easy to attach/detach when you need to) which is ready and waiting for Bump to grow a little more. It’s incredibly warm and comfy I really like the style. Without the extra section it’s fitted and flattering.
It has a concealed hood in the collar which is easily unzipped one handed when you need it – super practical in a sudden downpour -but can be discreetly hidden away when it’s not needed. Enclosed it offers extra warmth around the back of the neck. The coat comes to just above the knee which is a really nice length and prevents that horrid chill at the bottom of your back shorter styles can often give.
There are three pockets on the outside, one breast and two side pockets. The depth of the side pockets are probably the only part of the coat that disappoints me – you can’t fit a mobile phone in them, let alone much else.
The Tikka coat is available at Yummy Mummy Maternity for £110 which qualifies for free delivery. It may seem a bit pricey to some, but for the quality and longevity (It’s perfect for wear after baby arrives) makes it worth it in my eyes.
Look out for my review of their occasion wear perfect for party season in the next couple of weeks.
