Hell Bunny Plus Size Millie Coat



It's totally no secret I'm a huge Hell Bunny fan. I became a fan of this brand a few years ago, back when they didn't offer options in my size. I would still search them often on ebay and dreamt that some day they would carry a collection for plus size girls. A few years ago my dream came true when Hell Bunny started carrying sizes 2X-4X. I have been poor ever since!

Over the last few years I have purchased many Hell Bunny dresses and I have always wanted one of their fantastic coats. They came out with a collection last winter that was so adorable. It did not include plus sizes. I have done  a lot of finger crossing this year and Facebook page posting about how much us curvy girls need cute winter coats. Someone over in bunny land heard my prayers because this winter they have an amazing collection of plus coats. Good job Hell Bunny for stepping up and producing lots of items for your plus size fans.



Hell Bunny's Millie Coat in Grey and Red.


When I saw Hell Bunny post the collection of winter coats on their Facebook page a few weeks ago I knew I had to have one. I quickly messaged my girl Michelle over at Sweet Echo to see if she would be carrying them. Of course she was! She has impeccable taste and I can always count on her to have an amazing stock of HB. For anyone who is into this brand totally join her Facebook shop. She is always adding new items, but they get snagged up fast. I admit to checking her page daily. I might be a little obsessed. 


I have to admit I was a little worried if this jacket would fit me. I'm a solid size 26/28 bottom and according to the size chart I'm too big for this jacket.  I wanted the coat so bad it was worth a risk. I ordered a size 4X and according to the size chart it fits a 48" bust and a 43 1/4" waist. I'm 4" larger in the bust and 6" larger in the waist. While the coat has no stretch it's cut generous in this style. AWESOME! 


I think this jacket is the perfect length. I'm 5'6" and it hit me right around the knees. I love the sweet anchor buttons on the front of this coat. 4 of them are functional. The soft Black grosgrain ribbon trim on the hem, collar and cuffs is also a nice touch. The inside of the jacket is lined in black silk. This jacket is not super warm. I don't want anyone to think when they buy this jacket it will be an all winter every day love affair. At least it can't be for me. I live in Canada and things can get pretty bitter in the heart of winter. I will be able to use this coat for travels to and from parties and shopping. I just won't be doing any long hikes in it. I feel so pretty and feminine in this coat. 


If anyone is interested in grabbing this coat I would totally get on it. I think it is going to be a crazy popular item and will sell out very fast. Currently, you can order this jacket and other styles of Hell Bunny jackets at Sweet Echo. The price of the Millie coat is $145 + Shipping. Worth every cent in my opinion.

  4. Hey there. I was thinking about buying the Millie coat myself.
    At what temperatures do you think it would be most comfortable to wear, since you mentioned it isn't fitting for winter?
    I'm looking for a coat which is good for spring and autumn (10-15°C) would you think it could be up to the task?

    1. It is fitting for winter just not winter in Toronto, Ontario. I think it would be the perfect jacket for the fall and for mild winter days.It's not really something I will be wearing to go tracking though the snow. The coats are made in the UK where the winter is less harsh. I think you will find yourself maybe a little warm in it at 15 degrees because the shell of the coat is quit heavy, but a little bit colder and it would be perfect.
