I love the coat but way too big!
on February 4, 2015
I love this coat. It is not too heavy and perfect for an Arizonan winter. The fabric is soft.
The problem I have is that it is way too big. I normally wear an XL/16 (185lbs and 5'5") so I ordered an 18 expecting a little bit too big in order to fit over clothes. Anyway, the coat arrived quicker than expected(order 01/10/2015 & delivered 01/26/2015), which was great, but the label stated it was a size 20. Not completely sure if this is just the difference between US and UK sizing or a mistake. I attempted to wear the coat and deal with the big coat. The sleeves were humongous, length and girth wise, so I ended up pinning them. That worked but the waist was still too big which makes me look a lot bigger than I already am. ;-) You can see in my picture how big the sleeves are.
I decided to return the coat and order a smaller size. Big mistake! It was going to cost me a minimum of $30 to return it! No way was I going to pay that when the coat originally was only $32(including original shipping). I cancelled that return and am now trying to decide what to do with this coat. I'd love to order another one in a smaller size but I'd have to sell this coat first.
