Finding the perfect winter coat for a woman can be quite difficult if you have an unusual body type. Petite women and plus-sized women have to deal with this issue every time they go shopping for new clothes, and winter coats are no exception to this rule. So how do you find the right coat that looks great on your body type? Read on to find out!

What Is The Perfect Winter Coat?

Winter is a time when bundling up in furs and wool coats are normal. But finding the perfect winter coat isn’t as easy as one might think. It all depends on what you’re looking for, whether it be a fur women’s coat or a wool women’s coat. Fur will be warmer, but some people won’t like the harshness of fur, so wool women’s coats may be more their style. A fur women’s jacket may work better if you live in colder regions of North America such as Alaska, Canada, or Washington. Whereas those who live in a warmer region of North America, such as Florida or Texas would benefit more from a cotton fabric with thicker insulation on top.

Layering Piece vs. Standalone Piece

In order to find the best coat, you’ll want to consider what role it will play in your wardrobe. Layering pieces typically require a shirt, tank, or sweater underneath while standalone pieces are worn as their own clothing. For this post, we’ll focus on two types of coats: wool women’s coats and fur women’s coats.

Wool Women’s Coats


For those who live in cold climates, a wool women’s coat is essential for warmth. In general, these come in long lengths with either a hood or head coverage for extra warmth. These are also often paired with fur hoods for an additional layer of protection against the elements.

Layers of Warmth – The Base Layer, Insulating Layer, Outer Shell

Finding a quality winter coat is no easy task, especially when you have a hard time finding one that is both functional and flattering. But as long as you know what your needs are beforehand, it will be easier to work through the options. First, figure out which area of the body you want to focus on, typically choosing between the hips and chest. Then it comes down to two main types of coats: fur or non-fur women’s coats.

The majority of warm coats will include a base layer and insulating layer, both made from either synthetic or natural fibers. The outer shell is typically waterproof and windproof, sometimes lined with another thin lining for additional warmth. Depending on what you need most in a coat and your climate, it’s usually best to focus on one main area before considering anything else: do you want a longer parka that keeps you warm even if you’re sitting down outside? Or are you after something more stylish with less insulation? Perhaps a belted peacoat is just what you need.

To conclude – there are endless options when it comes to finding a stylish and functional winter coat, but keep these steps in mind when deciding which one is right for you.

Fit Of The Jacket – Before you shop, know what works for you


Before you start shopping, take a look at your figure. If you’re looking for warmth and comfort, try on coats with a heavy-weight fabric that will keep you warm in the cold weather. If you want to be stylish without feeling bulky, look for coats that are closer fitting in the midsection (some people call this a pencil coat). For more of an oversized look and/or a little less coverage in terms of heat retention, try out a longer trench coat or double-breasted overcoat. With either style, make sure it closes snugly at all seams.

Adding Style & Function with Details

Choosing a Winter Coat? If you’re looking for a coat that is stylish, will keep you warm, and provide some extra warmth when needed, this post may be for you. The key to finding the perfect winter coat is finding one that fits you well and is cut for your body type.

This means not only does it need to fit in the chest but also in other areas like arm length, sleeve length, waistline, etc. The best way to do this without having anyone measure you or if they are not available, take measurements yourself!
