I tried on the coats at Destination Maternity, and the shoulders are too long, and the sleeves too long. I know it would cost a lot to get a wool coat altered, so I don't want to buy one that doesn't fit.
Old Navy has xs coats on their website, but they always tend to be too boxy in the shoulders with long sleeves as well.
Gap coats fit me in an xs, but they aren't selling maternity coats this year! (Or yet, which makes me think not at all.)
It gets sooo cold where I am, so I don't think I will be able to manage with my coat open and a scarf.
I work in a formal office and can't get away with wearing something that's too big or a puffy down coat, etc. Everyone in my office wears nice wool coats to work, as we have to also wear suits, etc. I suppose I could leave something less formal in my car, BUT that still doesn't solve for weekends when I really need something that fits for when I am running errands, shoveling light snow off the front steps, etc. (Husband will do heavy shoveling this year.)
I don't know what to do, or where else to look.
Anyone have suggestions or can give insight on what they did, if they are also an xs and petite?
