Find Your Most Flattering Coat
If You Have a Tummy
Straight-cut, single-breasted styles, like Naomi Watts's topcoat, which was a wardrobe staple when she was pregnant. Also look for coats with tailored styles or a subtle A-line shape.
Double-breasted styles, anything too fitted at the mid-section, and pocket details near the waist.
Try armholes and a natural shoulder to create a slimmer silhouette.
Go with a mid-hip length or longer.
Choose coats with simple closuresno oversize buttons or toggles that can pull.
