Second-Hand Coat Extension

We appreciate the need to save money when starting a family and understand the desire to buy items for pregnancy or kids second-hand!  To understand what type of zipper adapter you need we must identify what model of coat extension insert you own.

1. The coat extension is from the 2015/2016 season

You will see the following features:

a.  Each end of the belt attaches to the insert with black detachable hooks
b.  There are two coil zippers along each edge of the insert
c.  There are snap buttons on the lining to adjust the length of the insert

 If you have one of these inserts you can simply purchase an adapter for your coat by purchasing an Extra Zippy Strip Adapter.

 

2. The coat extension is from the 2014/2015 winter season:

You will see the following features:

a.  Each end of the belt attaches to the insert with a silver rectangular ring
b.  There is only one zipper along each edge of the insert
c.  There are no snap buttons on the lining to adjust the length of the insert

If your coat has a different zipper than the one on the insert then you will need a special adapter.  To place an order we would need to know ALL of the following:

1. details of your coat zipper
2. details of the zipper on coat extension insert
3.  whether you want to use this for pregnancy or babywearing

Unfortunately you will need a separate adapter for each of pregnancy and babywearing in this scenario since the zipper on the panel doesn't already match your coat for pregnancy.

Why is the 2014 model different?

Our first season of coat extensions were custom made to zip directly into a person's coat for pregnancy without the need for an adapter.  The zipper on the insert was a direct match to a customer's coat zipper and therefore provided a very seamless fit.  

An adapter was only required to flip the insert upside-down to wear over a baby in a carrier.  These coat extensions were never designed to be handed from person to person since the zipper on the insert (e.g. type, size, length) were sewn specifically for the person ordering the item. 

We have now added several features to the design of our 2015/2016 collection to  make it easy for customers to swap between pregnancy and babywearing over multiple coats.
