*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday 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?*
Sonja requested a few picks for raincoats that work for hourglass figures, so here we go:
Gallery Single Breasted Wing Collar Nepage Coat – was $300, now $149.90
This coat is water repellent (not waterproof) so it might not be your best bet in a torrential downpour … but dang, it sure is a gorgeous shape. The large lapels might feel a little bulky if you’re a full-busted hourglass, but the princess seams and flared hem will look marvelous on your curves. Available in sizes S – XL, as well as petite sizes and plus sizes. If you like this shape but want a color other than black, try this Via Spiga skirted trench.
Land’s End Transitional Spring Coat – was $79, now $59.97
Also merely water resistant, but great for the sporty hourglass and subtly shaped to nip at the waist by an internal drawcord. Available in this orange as well as olive in sizes XS – XL, sold out in M. Size availability varies by color. Also in petite and plus sizes.
Helly Hansen Kirkwall Rain Coat – was $124.95, now $93.71
Fully wind- and waterproof and SO cute. This belted coat has a very slight A-line shape and minimal detailing above the waist, which make it ideal for hourglasses. HH tends to run small, but reviewers say this style runs true. Available in this yellow as well as black or navy in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. This similar style is available in plus sizes. Like this shape but not digging the belt? L.L. Bean’s h2OFF is a similar style.
Columbia Arcadia Casual Jacket – was $110, now $28.99 – $85
And on the casual end of the spectrum, here’s a waterproof Columbia jacket with a simple design and waist-accentuating drawcord. Definitely sportier, but still versatile. Available in this olive as well as black, yellow, lilac, hot pink, or pale gray in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also available in plus sizes.
Sustainable resources for raincoats for hourglass figures:
- Eileen Fisher – EF’s outerwear can be boxy, but sometimes it’s a bit more tailored. This asymmetric jacket is dynamite.
- Everlane – Again, more sustainable than hourglass … but you’ve got several trenches and this fun anorak to choose from.
- Etsy + eBay – When in doubt, try secondhand and handmade!
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for raincoats for hourglass figures:
- Nordstrom – Lots of trenches, but other nipped-waist options, too. This utility trench is single-breasted but also belted, so better for curvy gals.
- Eddie Bauer – EB’s rain gear may work better for pears like me – definitely fitted and slim-waisted, but sometimes a bit snug in the chest. Worth exploring, tho.
- Macy’s – Really. Macy’s excels at outerwear! This cinched-waist anorak is a great choice.
