Can you find the next number in this series?

1, 3, 8, 19, 42, 89, 184, ?

The missing number is 375. Each number is double the previous number with 1, then 2, then 3 etc added on.

375 = 184 x 2 + 7

Two points each to Flin and Bear and one to Alicia (who spotted the pattern but only added 6 instead of 7).
