I loved this jacket but unfortunately could not keep it. The size medium was more than adequate - in fact a bit large for me- through the waist and hips ( and I have a pear shaped figure so that should have been a good thing). Because it has adjustable ties for the waist and the bottom of the jacket, that was easy to adjust. But the medium was too tight through the shoulders. I usually wear a size 12 top. If I got the large it would have been huge on me every where else. If you are a size 10 and carry extra weight in your hips - this could be a perfect fit for you.
