Universal Jacket Extender

      20_21 Model


  • 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.

Really great!

This is the perfect product to allow us to keep using our good quality coats year round. It traps heat, keeping me warm, and is comfortable and very easy to use. So far so good!!

Second Purchase!

I love the Make My Belly Fit jacket extender. This is the second one for me to purchase. (First one is in storage and I can't get to it right now.) It allows me to continue to wear my normal puffer coat here in NYC while I am pregnant. And is so useful afterwards when you have the baby in the carrier.

Must needed Jacket Extender!

First off, customer service was amazing! Perfect communication and gave me a heads up that I was double buying a piece for the universal jacket extender. I didnt know that that the set up already came with the extra piece. I was so happy that I found this option so my preggo belly would fit in this amazing jacket that my husband got me for christmas! Well worth the money and you wont regret buying this item!

Universal fit is great. The only thing is, it's still loose even with the plastic things added to each end. Every time I put it on I have to reajust one side. The warmth is great. The different possible ajustments are great. Overall quite happy.
