I bought this as a gift for my college daughter. The jacket is definitely cropped and adorable on. I did size up for fit so that she is able to wear a sweatshirt or sweater underneath. She is normally a medium and I purchased a large. Would recommend and for the price it was worth it for the trend.
I live in Wisconsin. This coat is NOT for our deep freeze winters unless you wear two of them. It is lightweight and comfortable and is probably perfect for a fall/spring jacket when it’s a bit chilly out. Like I said in my title, it is probably best for 40-60 degree weather. It’s simply not warm enough for below that. I’ll be honest, I’m disappointed since my last puffer coat kept me toasty even down to the teens. I wore this tonight in 30 degree weather and felt cold, almost like the fabric was breathing the cold air in. I’ll keep it for those warmer days of late winter/spring. You can never have too many coats here.
This jacket is perfect for warmer cold climates like NM. I ordered a medium. But, medium is too small as I couldn't get the zipper closed comforably. So I just ordered the same one in a size Large. So my measurements are; bust, 38", waste, 33", and hips, 43" also I am 5' 7" and weigh 135 pounds. So this should give you an idea as to what size jacket you should order. I'm sure the Large will fit me well. It is hard ordering online when you can't try things on. I hope this helps. Anyway, buy the jacket it is beautiful. Fit is great! Have a little room for a light sweater too! Love the material as it is not too noisy and is soft feeling. Great little jacket! But one, you won't be disappointed.
I love the coat/jacket. Even at my height (5'10"), it is long enough and fits well. Warm. Flattering. I find it a perfect purchase, with a remarkably affordable price.
I needed a longer packable coat and got this on sale. It looks pretty good for the price. I have yet to try it in weather colder than 20-30 degrees Fahrenheit but so far, it's stood up to winter weather and kept me warm enough.
This is a cute little jacket, some might call it a "car coat" this is dating me. I am 140 lbs and 5"5", the medium fits great even with a thin sweater under . If you want to wear a thicker sweater or layer more then i suggest i size up. I wanted a jacket with a hood for to walk the dogs in the 30-40 degree morning weather.
