  • The Universal Jacket Extender is a softshell extender that expands the front of your own jacket during pregnancy. No need to buy a maternity jacket or borrow a bigger one. Feel good in your own jacket!
  • While baby-carrying with a soft-structured front-carrier, wrap or sling, the extender expands your jacket around you and your baby, for close comfort and warmth while outdoors.
  • What’s included:
    • Universal Extender (with removable fleece panel)
    • Universal Adapter (patented).
  • The Universal Adapter allows you to attach your Extender to MOST jackets. (See Warning below for restrictions). The unique design slides over and secures onto most brands / sizes of zip allowing you to switch between jackets with ease. For different length jackets, you simply need to reposition it in order to get your ideal coverage or fold the top down on shorter jackets. The Universal Adapter can also be used on its own during early pregnancy and post-partum where just a few extra inches are needed.
  • Wind, rain and snow resistant, ready for fall, winter and spring.


  • Warning: Not suitable for Metaluxe zips. See photo here.
  • Designed to work with MOST zips, brands and types of jackets (rain, down, parka, long and short jackets). Watch a DETAILED DEMO here.
  • Made from 3-layer softshell with a micro-fleece lining (98% polyester, 2% Spandex). Includes interior membrane (waterproof / breathable) and outer durable water-repellency coating (DWR).
  • Long pull-tabs and high quality zips make zipping easier.
  • Plastic snaps and elastic strip to control the width for a better fit. Snaps also help with shortening the top on short jackets and while baby-carrying.
  • Snap-on heavy fleece panel for an extra layer of warmth (included). Simply remove for milder days.
  • Universal Adapter includes stop-system to make sure it stays in place on your zip and prevent any sliding.
  • 27" (70cm) long, one-size fits most. 12" (30cm) wide at it's widest and tapering down to 7" (17cm) at the base.
  • Wash Instructions: Machine wash cold with mild detergent. Hang to dry.
  • Designed and Made in Montreal, Canada. Made in Canada


Your baby’s safety is your responsibility. Always monitor your baby or child to ensure adequate ventilation and warmth. The Universal Jacket Extender is NOT a baby-carrier. Always follow the safety instructions of your baby-carrier.

Made my winter immeasurably better, more comfortable, and more enjoyable!

As an active wintertime pregnant lady, I was SO happy to find MakeMyBellyFit to help me get through the winter while still participating in the activities I love. Also looking forward to using it this coming winter to carry my baby around. It's so rare to find products that will serve you well through pregnancy and BEYOND. This is that product. It kept me warm and cozy while skiing this past winter and will no doubt keep me and baby warm this coming winter - and SO much cheaper than buying new winter coats!!

Fantastically designed, innovative product

I was so impressed with my Universal Jacket Extender; firstly the service I received before I made my purchase was excellent, the product arrived very promptly, and the quality has surpassed my expectations. This on top of what in the first instance is a wonderfully innovative design and a real revelation. I’ve found the product very easy to use and given the quality of its production I am sure I will get much use out of it for years to come. Many thanks!

Great product - really helpful customer services

I was so pleased to find this product. I wasn’t totally sure that it would fit the jacket I was intending to use it on, so emailed customer services ahead and they were super helpful. It’s really easy to use (once you’ve got the knack), and I’m so pleased it’s allowing me to continue using my trusted jacket as my belly grows! THANK YOU!

Happy with this purchase

This versatile jacket extender was perfect to keep my growing belly warm when I was pregnant and now very useful to wrap my newborn as I carry him! I am very happy with this product.
