I want to like it...but I just don't. It doesn't look like it fits well, and it's too short. Her long torso makes things look 'off' if they aren't made right...things don't hit her/hang where they should.

Unless she buys those tent type clothes which I think peeps on here would criticise, she is going to find, as we all do, that what fitted perfectly yesterday, is not so perfect today, and can't be worn tomorrow. First pregnancy, so it's a learning curve. Have a look at the difference between Diana pregnant with William and then with Harry. Really different - no one would have said knee length white pop socks was a good look the 1st time

Some on here should be a bit more understanding

I'm with them; I think she looks really cute.
Me too. I've been reading their site for a long time and they don't hold back from what they really think.

The skirt may be a little short for my tastes, but if I had her legs I'd show them off too. Especially if I were six months pregnant!

Totally agree about the hemline debate.

In any event, this would not be on my list of top 10 favorite Kate looks, but she looked fine.

I can honestly say that since she got engaged, I've still not seen her in anything that I truly disliked (or considered inappropriate). I've seen her in outfits that I've loved, outfits I liked and outfits that I've felt 'ho-hum' about, but never in anything I disliked.

Same. I can't remember ever hating something she's worn or thinking it was inappropriate for the event. There are some outfits I love, some I like, and some I think are meh, but she never looks silly or badly dressed.

Thank G-d there are no pictures of me in my red plaid maternity dress. I hated it so badly at the end that I cut it into bits!

The last two short maternity outfits were very nice. Not this time. This one looks like an oversized plaid shirt sans pants.

I've read that these oversized plaid shirts are popular in Giraffeland.

That coat is far too short for a pregnant woman her age! Same with the shoes/boots. And she needs to do something more age-appropriate with her hair, too. She seems sweet, and like she's really trying to do a good job with these outings though.

I love the tartan coat but it's way too short, I imagine it's not maternity wear which is why it's so short. I know she's not big, but maternity wear is designed for bumps and to still look appropriate.

I like the Armani coat, its warm, nice color and good length, it seems she's been finding old pieces in her closet.
The scarf is a nice adition as well because it doesn't make the whole outfit too dark, and even though I don't really like her everlasting boots, I like them with this coat.
However I think her earrings don't match this outfit, rubies or with a yellow stone would be much better.

Kate looks great in the red coat. The tartan coat is nice, but would have been better. I'm surprised there wasn't a photo of her behind, as if she bent over, there was nowhere to hide it. The tights don't make up for the shortness...the coat is NOT a tunic. What is she thinking...

She was wearing a black pencil skirt with the tartan coat. While the coat had a flared skirt, the black skirt Prevented any modesty issues.

It's interesting how the coat changed his fashion message with the changing of the buttons from the left side to the middle. In 2006 ist was a very elegant and a bit daring wrapped coast with a low decollete, now it is a classic and modest piece fit for a princess. Thinking back to the last 10 years, wrapped dresses and coats were quite fashionable, so we might see some more recycled pieces before Catherine has to wear real maternity clothes.

Thank you Marika86 for the links to the pics.

Yes, the Countess of Strathearn looks great in the red Armani coat today. Nicely accessorized too, especially the Strathearn tartan scarf.

And she gets a pass on the boots - mild edema, common during pregnancy, makes your feet slightly 'puffy'. Any footwear that Kate - or any other pregnant lady - finds comfortable is fine.
