Women's Plus Size Raincoat. Autumn 2011
Styles of raincoats for women cover many looks and are an eclectic collection. The classic trench coat has been around for decades and continues to be a timeless style that never grows outdated or old. Anorak or parka is another popular style. The raincoats are a much lighter weight and can be made from gabardine, which is a blend of wool and cotton. It is a very durable material.

Womens raincoats can come hooded or with a detachable hood. There are also raincoats that are light as feathers and can be conveniently folded into a tote bag or purse. Urban jackets have pockets on the inside for MP3 players. There are even eco- friendly raincoats for women that are made from all organic materials and are PVC free. Canteen jackets have large cargo pockets for storage. A money saving feature are the reversible coats, which is like having two coats for the price of one.

These womens raincoat garments come in all colors and sizes, including plus size for the larger woman.
Color options are classic black to fluorescent pinks and yellows. Bright greens, turquoises and oranges are highly popular colors. Plaids, solids and patterns dominate the landscape. It’s also easy to find raincoat prints with butterflies and abstract patterns.

Selecting the right rain wear is important depending upon the activity. For athletic women, there are high tech gortex and microfiber raincoats that repel water and allow the garment to breathe. Runners and bikers can wear these jackets, which allow sweat to evaporate and keep athletes dry. Skiers will need waterproof rain wear that are fleece- lined for warmth and have taped seams and Velcro cuffs to keep out the snow.


    Classic trench - The trench has been the classic raincoat style for men and women since the 1930s. It has a broad collar, a capelet-style back, is often double-breasted and usually ties or belts around the waist in a matching fabric. Some trench coats also have a zip-out liner that increases their coziness in cooler weather.
    A-line - This style is fitted in the shoulder and arm areas and becomes fuller around the hips. There is no belting. It flatters wider hips since it flows softly down to the hem.
    Reversible - This is a great style if you are looking for a coat that can keep you dry and warm. Most styles are a soft, waster-resistant microfiber on one side and some type of a soft faux fur on the other side.
    Slicker - This solid vinyl, shiny bright raincoat style is a wonderful way to have fun while shedding cold-weather rainstorms. It incorporates snaps or zippers instead of buttons and usually has a matching hood. This style is a basic American fashion. In bright yellow, the slicker kept us dry as kids, keeps the police dry as they direct traffic and provides protection for the fisherman at sea.
