Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cherokee 2410 Women's Fashion Whites 36-inch Notched Collar Lab Coat White (Apparel)
I read the reviews and saw that it ran a little big. Therefore, I decided to order a size small. I am 5'5" and 120 pounds and the small is HUGE!!!!!!! Seriously, a lab coat this size would fit someone who weighs 50 pounds more than me. More specifically, 40 of those 50 pounds would need to be in the butt/hip area as this part is gigantic! I thought washing and drying it on high heat would shrink it...nope! I guess the quality is good, but it doesn't really matter because I look like a child playing dress up as a doctor in this lab coat. I plan to return it.

I read this and bought the lab coat anyway, thinking it's ok because I'm very curvy. Stupid me. You're absolutely right, this is made for someone with either a HUGE bottom, or someone wearing a ballgown to work. I'm definitely sending it back because I also look like a child playing dress up, and I was considering changing it for a size XS but the underarms are tight enough that if they were any smaller they probably wouldn't fit over clothing. It's a very disproportionate coat and the picture is very misleading. Did you return yours and get an XS, and did it fit?
