Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of MakeMyBellyFit. Like to the point where I can often be found espousing the wonders of your products to random strangers who notice my jacket extender and ask about it. I'm now on my second kiddo, using the jacket extenders through both pregnancies and now baby-wearing with #2. We live in rainy, blustery, chilly southeast Alaska, so having the ability to wear my usual jackets has been an absolute godsend.
Suffice it to say, I was primed to love the universal extender. My second kid was born in late winter, and my favorite warmer-weather rain gear doesn't work with the zip-in extenders, I had to get the universal attachment. I've used it daily since it arrived two weeks ago, and I still have yet to find a foolproof way to keep it in place on my jacket, it's constantly sliding up and down. As others have noted, the material is really thick, which is especially problematic when your zipper is shorter than 27" and you have to try to fold it over at the top -- the little included clips are ok I guess, but I can't manage to attach them in the way suggested, and actually have this keep the zipper folded out of the way and staying in one place. I've resorted to using binder clips (like the office supply, meant for keeping stacks of paper together) to supplement the small clips provided for this purpose.
The universal attachment attaches to the jacket extender flawlessly, so that part is fine. I just wish it weren't so difficult to adjust for shorter zips, and would stay in place better.
My zipper adaptor came quickly and I love how warm it is! I thought the wind would come through but it’s a good deal. My only complaint is that it tends to slide down my zipper and come unattached at the bottom. It could be due to the ‘skinny ness’ of my zipper?
Very easy to pop on any jacket and zips up smoothly to keep my little one cozy beneath. So happy with my purchase!
I thought to buy a pregnancy winter coat but with Make my belly fit it was not necessary because with the universal extension I can use all my jackets. It’s a great product.
