Universal Adapter

    1. The Universal Adapter allows you to attach the BellyFit Jacket Extender* to most zippered jackets. The unique design slides over and secures onto any brand or size of zip. For different length jackets, you simply need to reposition it in order to get your ideal coverage.
    2. Fits MOST zips (See Compatibility in Specs for restrictions) and can be easily and quickly swapped between jackets. Watch a DETAILED DEMO here.
    3. Use the Universal Adapter on its own during early pregnancy and post-partum for a few extra inches.
    4. Combine the Universal with our award-winning BellyFit Jacket Extender to use up to full-term and after for baby-wearing.

Great alternative!

Just what I needed to still be able to zip up my coat! I’m 31 weeks pregnant with my second child (all belly) and I only need this adapter for now with my fall jacket. It’s easy to install and it does work on everything! I do have the full extender so when I switch to my winter jacket, I will be able to use this adapter with it and afterwards when I want to carry my baby. Awesome product! Great customer service as well!


Universal Adapter

Good Quality

This feels like it is high quality and looks really nice, like it is part of my jacket. It is not the easiest to get onto some of my jackets, but on others it slides on just fine. One thing to note is that if you have a jacket that has a flap that covers the zipper, the adapter is wide enough that it pushes the flap up, so it doesn't look that great.

I must say, I also ordered a maternity winter jacket, and it ended up costing as much as the extender and the adapter. I ended up returning my maternity jacket as soon as my adapter came in the mail- the maternity jacket was not nearly as warm or high quality as my regular winter jacket and I love being able to wear the jackets I already own.

I also love that the adapter zips to itself, so you don't have to use the extender right away in your earlier stages of pregnancy.

Not as easy as it appears

The video on this page makes the adapter look a lot easier than it actually is to attach. Takes a while to get on a coat and definitely doesn't just slide on. I have a coat that just goes below my hips and the adapter is just a bit too long and it looks awkward. There are also some adapter clips and they are impossible to open. would think about just getting a maternity coat before purchasing this.

Thank you for the review Nicole. Sorry to hear you had some challenges with the adapter. We'll send you a follow-up email privately to see if we can help further.
