Insomniac Sale Picks: Winter Coats for Curvy Figures

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Danielle requested a few picks for winter coats for curvy figures, so here we go:

Side-tab Coat – was $168, now $134

Curves come in many configurations, and if you’ve got a larger bust you might shy away from this coat’s oversized lapels. But the gored, flared lower half and nipped waist are ideal for women with hips and defined waists. Available in this camel, ivory, navy, and black in sizes 0 -14. Size availability varies by color.

DKNY Chevron Quilt Down Coat – was $132, now $108.99

The best down coats incorporate tight quilting near the waist, which defines subtly. This coat looks like it could accomodate both bust and hips, and still offer some figure definition. Available in this ivory in sizes XS – XL. Also comes in dark grey, which is full price, in sizes XS – XL.

Jessica Simpson 3/4 Length Down Coat – was $215, now $130

Belts can be life-savers on some curvy bods, but they can wreak havoc on others. This down coat features an elastic cinched back waist instead, which defines without squeezing and subdividing. Available in this black, ivory, and navy in sizes S – XL.

Nicole Miller Architectural Wool Twill Coat – was $265, now $238.99

This fully lined wool coat also features that desirable subtle shaping – flared skirt, relatively roomy bodice, and nipped waist. The structured seaming and inset waist complement the coat’s fit-and-flare silhouette, and the natural V created by the flaps is a flattering feature. Available in sizes 4 – 16.

Also see this older post on flattering winter coats.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for winter coats for curvy figures:

  1. Nordstrom – So many gorgeous options at a variety of price points. This hooded down walking coat looks dynamite.
  2. The North Face – I traded in my Metropolis for a different style eventually, but it’s a great shaped parka and a staple for many MN residents. And this beloved brand has loads of great insulated options with shaping.
  3. Land’s End – Shaped and belted down options that will keep you warm and cozy through the coldest winter weather.

    I’ve had a lot of luck with Calvin Klein. Recently a find an amazing trench coat from that that fit my curves (and came with a belt to help nip in my waist).

    I haven’t tried DDAtelier (a brand that sizes by both bust and waist) yet but they also have a number of ridiculously cute coats that are made specifically for busty women: http://dd-atelier.com/Coats/ I especially love the Classic Trench Coat in Lilac!

    Another brand to look for is Pepperberry (another brand with both bust and waist measurements) and they just put all of their coats on sale for 20% off: http://www.bravissimo.com/pepperberry/products/coats/coats/#/1?show=16&sort=1&exclusive=false&new=false&sale=false

    I believe Urkye is planning on coming out with a beautiful red trench coat sometime in the future too (again another brand with both bust and waist measurements).

    Thank you again – you’re the best! After looking at the links you just posted, I actually found a $20 coupon in my email from 6pm.com this morning, and ordered this already-discounted down-filled DKNY Pillow Collar Coat for $85ish because it had the same cinched back waist as one of your examples.

    I’ll report back when it arrives – the real question is whether it will fit my waist and fit over my hips at the same time. If that fails, I’m trying that Jessica Simpson coat next. Then I’ll finally be able to donate my extremely warm but very red and puffy older winter coat to hurricane relief, and it’ll be win/win!

    In my own search, I came across this – http://www.ebay.com/itm/Victorias-Secret-Wool-Trench-Coat-Beige-Camel-Misses-Size14-BNWOT-/300826087882?pt=US_CSA_WC_Outerwear&hash=item460aa1d1ca – It’s a beautiful wool trench in size 14. it’s not my size, but one of Sal’s lovely readers should snap it up if you’re in the market.
