Thank you for your feedback.
For me this is true to size, great fit jacket.
I was worried about the fit but to my surprise the XL fits perfect and I can comfortably wear a sweater underneath.
It fits great is comfortable and keeps me dry in the rain.

    Size: LargeColor: Coral Reflective Verified Purchase
    This is so darned cute - much more so than I expected when I ordered it. Also the fit is perfect - I was not sure about that, either. I am 5'6" and 150 (or so) lbs and almost ordered a large, but got medium - it fits great. The SLEEVES ARE LONG ENOUGH, and they have velcro tabs to snug them at the wrist. The construction seems really good, and the reflective stripe is really reflective. Now i can walk the dog in the rain at night and not worry about not being seen.

    Likes: Excellent quality! Wind and waterproof jacket. Pretty color (pink). Reflective. Hooded. Vented. Soft lined hand pockets. Velcro wrist tightners. Lightweight. Wonderfully soft smooth exterior. Soft lined interior. Doesn't have that nylon "zip zip" sound when walking. Sizing is fine. I'm XL (18), but got the XXL to layer, and it's perfect. Plenty of room in the arms and chest with no binding anywhere. I wore this with one long-sleeve layer underneath on a windy, blustery, 28 degree day, and never felt the wind or cold.
    Dislikes: NOT MACHINE WASHABLE. (Hence the 4 stars instead of 5) Spot clean with damp cloth only. A little boxy below the chest, so it could use a drawstring at the waist.
    Thus, there are not enough negatives for me to not recommend it. I would get this again in a heartbeat! If you're looking for a light wind & water proof jacket, and don't care if it's not fitted, then this fits the bill perfectly!

    Size: X-LargeColor: Aqua Reflective Verified Purchase
    This jacket is simply perfect! I live in Seattle and have been searching for a "girly" rain jacket for quit some time. This was exactly what I was looking for. The material is soft, flexible and very comfortable. The color is exactly as pictured! I wear a size 13/14 pant and L/XL t-shirts & sweaters. I was worried about the fit but to my surprise the XL fits perfect and I can comfortably wear a sweater underneath. So grateful to this company for making a wonderful product of good material and fashionable at the same time!

    Size: SmallColor: Aqua Reflective Verified Purchase
    There are so many great reviews here that helped me decide on my purchase, so I only have a little bit of info to add. I ordered the Aqua and the Mint, as I could not tell from the images here or searched online which one I would prefer. I'm attaching 3 pictures that I hope will help future buyers who may have the same dilemma! They're both very pretty and bright! For the record, I really liked the mint in person but it didn't go well with my rain boots and it is a much darker hue than I hoped, and I LOVED the aqua, so my decision was easy. For size reference, I am 5'3, about 140lbs and I'm wearing the size Small here with a relatively thin sweater underneath. It's comfortable and I can cross my arms across my chest pretty well considering the fabric has little give, if any. I would only size up had I planned to wear a heavy fleece under this jacket, but I do not, and that may cause me to lose some of the flattering shape.
    I love this jacket (finally, a hood with drawstrings on a rain jacket!) and my only complaint is the zipper, which sticks and seems very cheap/plasticky. It's not enough to make me return it, not by far. I've been looking for a great rain jacket for probably 4 years, and this is the best I have found!

    Size: XXX-LargeColor: True Navy Reflective Verified Purchase
    This jacket fits well if you order the correct size. The jacket runs small, I suggest you order up a size if you plan to wear an extra layer under it and are on the upper edge of the garment size range. The sizing chart is helpful. When it stops snowing and starts raining I will see just how waterproof the jacket is.

    Size: LargeColor: Coral Reflective Verified Purchase
    The color and reflective stripes are great. The sleeves a bit long for me. The material feels rubbery on the outside, a bit different from a true fabric feel, but that's OK since its waterproof. You don't perspire in it and that's good. Very satisfied.

    Size: X-LargeColor: Buttercup Reflective Verified Purchase
    This is a well made jacket but it runs really small. You should order one size larger than normal to be able to wear a sweater or sweat shirt under it.

    Size: MediumColor: Pink Reflective Verified Purchase
    I love this jacket! I use it when I ride my bike to work, so the reflective parts are perfect. The material isn't the standard waterproof "swishy" material, but an almost semi-rubbery kind, which works incredibly well against the rain! One thing I wanted to point out though was that a couple people who reviewed this jacket said it ran small. They don't. I got a medium when I'm usually a small because of this and it is definately quite roomy. I don't mind because I don't care what I look like in the rain, but for those who do, get your size and save the return hassle.
