Before I made my purchase I read and re-read all the reviews on this Tommy Hilfiger down-filled jacket and other Michael Kors, Kenneth Cole, etc. variations bc I wanted the best quality, most flattering and cost-effective option. I thought long and hard about writing this review and know that you'll find mine most helpful. Now, I'm only 5'2" and 140lbs, not top heavy and have a lil belly 'n booty. I purchased the medium eventho I fall about 1-2" larger than the Overstock.com size chart notes and the jacket fits me great, so I would say it runs very slightly bigger, but really it is true to size (I think the Overstock.com size chart actually runs a little small). I feel like I can wear light to medium weight sweaters underneath and the zipper is dual ended, which is a huge help bc the coat is long and you don't want to be restricted like a sausage, esp. if you're a little hippy/have a booty. I completely agree with the other review writers in regard to quality- it has really classy argyle print piping and is mostly fabric lined. Also, I went with Tommy Hilfiger as it has 60/40% down/waterfowl filling-- not as great as 100% down, but better than ***** % and price! Give this coat a try, you won't be disappointed, just know your body measurements!
