Winter is upon us and we are all already thinking about our coat. Some love it, others hate it because they feel clumsy, stuck and even not physically valued.

How to choose it? Depending on the shape of your body, as is the case with other garments: to enhance curves, lines and feel super sexy and magnetic, even when wearing a coat! The egg-shaped coat may not look good on you, but it could be perfect for a coat with a belt at the waist; or you are the right person to wear a long coat with a masculine cut, or you are so small that you need a coat with simple and slender lines. In short, choosing the coat is not just a matter of taste, of "oh how nice, I want that girl's coat", quite the contrary.

What is the ideal coat for you?

A basic rule should be to choose a simple coat model, which falls straight on the body without too many frills. Those with a slim waist could take advantage of it and buy a coat marked at the waist. In general, coats with longitudinal seams have a slimming effect, so they are especially recommended for those who want to diminish their shapes. The length of the coat is crucial: the most recommended are those that go down to the mid-leg, or just higher.

Even if they are all the rage now, if you are curvy it is better to avoid plain or colored furs, real or fake, because they dilate the figure too much. Double-breasted coats are also to be avoided, especially if you are prosperous, and so are oversized coats. Down can also cause problems in terms of awkwardness and width. But let's face it: in winter it really saves our lives. How then? The secret is to know how to wear it in the best way to avoid looking immobilized inside a bag of feathers


Let's go into the specifics, and see which are the most suitable coats according to the shape of the body, from wide hips to large breasts. Remember one very important thing though: being comfortable in the coat you want is the right key to experiencing low temperatures to the fullest!

For wide hips the coat is flared!

The right coat: if you have wide hips, choose a down-flared, A-line coat. If, on the other hand, you want to choose a coat marked at the waist, it must still have a flared lower part and not adhere to the hips and legs, otherwise the effect would be excessive. In short, a corolla coat would be better than a sheath dress! wider hips is to choose sensual colors: a burgundy, a camel, a black or a dark blue will warm your winter!

What to avoid: as logic dictates, avoid coats with pockets on the hips and those that are too tight or too padded. In general you have to avoid the "padded" effect, so choose coats with softer and more fluid materials, which fall slightly on the hips. Avoid cream, pastel pink, straw yellow because they would not do justice to your irrepressible personality!


If you hate the cold, we recommend this flared down jacket available on Amazon for € 65.99; otherwise opt for a classic black Sisley coat available on Amazon for € 139.

For the busty breasts the coat with belt

The right coat: if you are prosperous, the ideal for you is a coat with a marked waist. In this way you will enhance the bust without exaggerating. Particularly suitable are coats with belts at the waist, perhaps worn soft on the chest and legs. The dressing gown model it is definitely the best for you and also represents a great classic of sensuality and femininity. You can opt for classic colors such as black, beige or red, but also for a super trendy color: a beautiful purple!

What to avoid: to avoid a too puffy effect, avoid double-breasted coats and tight-fitting coats or those closed with a vertical zipper. But also the egg-shaped ones which, given the prosperity of the breast, instead of enhancing it, would flatten the lines risking to enlarge the figure as a whole. The trick is to always enhance, never hide!


Alternatively, you can opt for a nice warm down jacket like this one by Navahoo available on Amazon for € 99.90, which highlights the waist with really sexy leather inserts!

For broad shoulders

The right coat: If you have broad shoulders and narrow hips, the ideal coat for you must first and foremost be simple. To diminish the broad shoulders and enhance the hips more, the ideal model of outerwear is egg-shaped. A line of great fashion in the 60s that evens out the silhouette by creating curves where there are none. The egg-shaped coat is a great classic, which over the years has been able to modernize itself with increasingly fashionable colors and patterns. perfect for your body! And also take advantage of the coolest colors of the season: camel, purple, serenity blue or even ... animalier!

What to avoid: especially to avoid coats with shoulder pads, which would add volume to the part of the body that would need it least. Better coats or jackets with sloping shoulders. In short, if you are nostalgic for the 80s, focus on wedges and bright colors, but not exactly on the shoulder pads! Another model to avoid is the double-breasted one, which widens the bust and shoulders and tightens on the hips, accentuating an already triangular figure (a reverse) by nature, not enhancing its more imposing and sensual aspect.

You can opt for a nice warm egg-shaped down jacket like this available on Amazon for € 59.99, or for something classic revisited with a soft hood from ONLY available on Amazon for € 49.90.

For a smaller body, opt for tighter coats

The right coat: if you are petite, the thing you need to be more careful about is not to get literally swallowed by your coat. Choose coats that are not too long, with narrow and perhaps tight lapels, in this way your presence under the coat will be noticed. The bon ton coats of the 50s, with a round collar, could be for you, to give a chic touch even to the most casual winter outfits. Or an asymmetrical coat that could boost your petite physique and add a little roundness everywhere


What to avoid: Avoid coats that are too prominent, with fur collars or excessive details. Coats that are too long are also not for you: the hem should come just below the buttocks, for an ideal length. Down jackets are not a good idea, but during the great cold there is a need. Then opt for a short, tight and not too "puffy" down jacket, avoiding the risk of getting confused between excessive and fluctuating softness.


For the smaller ones, the ideal is a nice snug short down jacket like this one by Navahoo available on Amazon for € 99.90, or for a winter parka, Montgomery style, available on Amazon for € 76.95.
