Lovely coat--a bit shortwaisted

Wow, I'm very happy with the quality and style of this coat. Ordered my regular size 6, and it fits, but it's a close fit. Lighter sweaters would be fine but with a heavy one I think I would need to size up (or lose those last 5 pounds!). The tailoring and fabric quality can't be beat at this price, it looks very slender and dressy. I'm actually thinking about picking up the mahogany as well as the black just because it seems like such a versatile style. The one issue I have with it--at 5'10", the back belt (decorative) hits me well above the waist. I have that problem almost every time designers include these. It doesn't seem that the overall waist cuts in too high however, so the overall fit is fine. I will either have a tailor lower the fake belt strip or just live with it being high (after all, it's in the back, I can't see it).
