Attractive coat, but runs small

I really wanted to like this coat, but had to return it for a few reasons: while the design is quite attractive and smart, with fleece lined pockets, a knee length to keep you dry and a great hood with an attractive faux fur edge that lies nicely when not in use, it does RUN SMALL. Usually I'm a Medium, size 10 - but the Medium (stated as size 10-12) was snug on me over a T shirt, and with a zipper that leaves no "wiggle room" for stretching, it wouldnt zip closed comfortably at all. I might have exchanged it for the next size up but for the fact that it would be too warm for me here in No CA. Just trying it on indoors it felt quite warm. Anyone in another state might enjoy that feature tho, esp in winter! The description says it is water-repellant, but it doesnt look shiny or raincoat-like at all. Quite nice finish on the soft material. I purchased the red color and the faux leather sides along the zipper made it very modern and young looking - almost silly on this 62 y.o. grandmother! So while it is a very nice coat, it wasnt suitable for me. Only 4 stars cuz it runs small. Go up a size for sure.
