Universal Jacket Extender

UPDATED Version for 2019_2020.

    • 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 XXL. Feel good in your own jacket!
    • Includes a Universal Extender (with removable fleece panel) and our patent-pending Universal Adapter.
    • 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.
    • The Universal Adapter allows you to attach your Extender to MOST jackets. (See Compatibility below for restrictions). The unique design slides over and secures onto most brands or sizes of zip. For different length jackets, you simply need to reposition it in order to get your ideal coverage or fold the top down. 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.


    • Designed to work with MOST zips. Watch a DETAILED DEMO here.
    • Compatibility: Not suitable for Metaluxe Zips. See photo here.
    • Plastic snaps allow the width of the Extender to be adjusted. The included elastic strip can be snapped anywhere on the Extender for an even better fit.
    • Snap-on fleece panel for an extra layer of warmth (included). Simply remove for milder days.
    • 27" (70cm) long, one-size fits most.
    • Made from a layer of buttery-soft softshell with a micro-fleece lining for comfortable protection against the elements.
    • Long pull-tabs on all zips to make zipping easier.
    • Plastic snaps at the top of the Extender allow for easier folding down and securing in place on shorter jackets and while baby-carrying.
    • 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.

    I’m pregnant with twins, so it’s hard to keep up with my growth each week. I really appreciate how Make My Belly Fit has 3 stages for all my belly sizes this winter.


    Great shopping experience, received the item quickly and I’m really happy that it fits on all my jackets. Will keep my belly and baby warm! Thank you!


    My daughter loves it!


    It works well for what it's for.
    But the edges of the material at the top are a little stiff and aren't comfortable for the skin under my chin and around my neck.
    Also, once in a while the extender gets unhooked from the jacket at the top or at the bottom, as i'm trying to zip or unzip my jacket.
    Regardless, i'm using it and it works well enough.


    I like the belly fit universal extender. It is high quality and keeps me warm. However sometimes the snaps used to hold it in place fall off. I hope I can get more if I lose them. Thank you.
