beautiful, but way too big

Reviewed by Happy Bird from Santa Fe, NM on Monday, August 29, 2011
This coat is SO beautiful, but unfortunately it was too big for me. I'm 5'5" & 125lbs & athletic, and size small was FAR too roomy. Length of coat and sleeves were great, but I had enough room inside to do a cartwheel! Even with layers underneath, way too big. Fit was not flattering. Too much extra fabric for efficient movement. Decided not to exchange for XS because I predict length would be too short, and possibly overall still too large. Gorgeous coat though - well constructed, soft & flexible fabric (especially for waterproof), thin yet warm lining. Nothing fancy, just a solid, smart, high-quality coat. If you like your fit baggy, or if you have a "fleshier" torso, this might work for you. For me, sadly, it went back.
