I am typically a Large or X-Large in coats, but have difficult with the upper arms fitting properly on jackets, coats, etc. So, in the photo for this coat, the arms/sleeves look roomy as well as the coat. But the model is probably wearing a coat 2 sizes bigger. This is not an elegant coat. The upper arms and chest area are tight fitting, so if you have a long torso and carry your weight in your upper body, this is definitely not the coat for you. If you are petite or slender on the top, you will be fine with this coat for the fit. I also did not think the faux fur was all that soft. The quality is not the best in my opinion. The color is also not as jet black as it should be if the quality of the faux fur was better.
It would have been helpful if this item had a size chart posted along with it, unfortunately, it does not. I had to return the first coat I purchased for a smaller size. The sizing is as follows (US sizing): SM = 6-8, MED = 10-12, LG = 14-16. With that being said, it's a decent coat for the price - I've spent more than double for similar coats in the past. Every couple of years I purchase a new black faux fur coat, most come with the hinged hook clips which seem to break very easily. The snaps on this coat are a nice change and I'm hoping that they are quite a bit sturdier. It's a very soft coat, the fur around the cuffs and hood was a bit flattened but I think a little misting might fluff it up. I gave it 4 stars instead of five because I haven't worn it yet but I'm going to assume it's as warm as any of the other faux fur coats I have in the closet because it's just as thick. Another review had stated that the arms/chest area was a little tight, I didn't find that to be the case. I'm 5'1, 38 DD and was cursed with fat arms. First I ordered a large and was swimming in it, I exchanged for a medium and tried it over a thick sweater - it fit perfectly without being the least bit restrictive.
I purchased this for my granddaughter for her birthday. It is very well made, quite soft and I like the contrasting way the fur is trimmed along the front border all around the hood and down the front border of the coat. There are several heavy duty snaps all along the front to keep it properly closed and with the attached hood, she should be very warm when wearing it. If I didn't already have a black faux fur, I would have bought another one for myself. I'm sure she will like it.
The faux fur on this coat is really pretty and soft, and I thought the quality of the coat overall was excellent. I loved the hood - it falls around your face just beautifully and stays up over your head without having to be adjusted constantly. I did not think the fur trim on the front was as pretty as the coat itself - it did not look realistic to me. The coat is very long and voluminous at the bottom, which may explain the comments about tight upper sleeves from other reviewers. I did not find the sleeves tight, but it was almost like the coat was a size larger from the waist down. This would be good, I think, for really cold weather, but I ended up returning it because I didn't think I would ever wear it in Virginia - we just don't have that much cold weather. But I would recommend this for someone in a cold climate. The quality was great for the price!
I bought this coat a few years ago. Loved, loved, loved it. Warmest coat I have ever owned. Beautiful rich color (brown); beautiful faux fur; best hood and it falls just around the face framing it perfectly. God, I loved this coat. The price is great for the value. I received so many compliments and people actually asked if they could try it on just to feel it. You will never regret it! And the sizing is normal. If you have wide shoulders or are a bit larger on top, kick it up a size. It will never take away from the beauty of this coat!
This coat is glamorous, warm, fits well, and feels wonderful (although I won't get to wear it until Christmas because it's a gift from my husband and he wanted me to try it on to make sure it fit before he wrapped it and placed it under the tree. Hahahaha!) Maybe I'll forget about it during this busy season and then be totally surprised Christmas morning. Nah. Not gonna happen. As to the practical details, I am 5'7", about 170 lbs, usually wearing sizes varying between 12-14, occasionally 16 in slacks, so we ordered the Large and it's perfect for me. The length stops just above the ankle. We think that for the price, this is a very nice coat. I can hardly wait for Christmas now! Do I sound like a little kid or what? Actually, I'm a grandma!
This coat is more than I expected. I have wide shoulders and based on the other reviews I read, I purchased the large in black. The coat fits me perfectly and I receive a ton of compliments. I live in Boston and this coat keeps me so warm and comfortable. The hood is great and really helps when it’s cold and windy. The snap buttons are perfect; easy to snap on and off but keep snapped on no matter how I move. I highly recommend this coat it’s beautiful and practical...the perfect combo! Thank you Overstock. I bought this coat as a birthday present for myself and am so happy!
The coat is beautiful. It is warm and I love the snaps. It is true to size. My only complaint is the care instructions. It says to dry clean only, exclusive of decorative fur. I understand it is unacceptable not to include care instructions for the entire coat. What is the process for cleaning the decorative fur?
I received this coat a couple of days ago and it is beautiful! It looks like a very expensive coat. The faux fur is luxurious. I ordered size small and it fits perfectly. There is still enough room to wear a bulky sweater underneath. I'm going to wear it as an everyday coat, but also for dressier occasions. The cut of the coat is rather straight, so I'm not sure how well it would fit a curvier or full figured woman.
I live in Florida but my family are in Massachusetts. So I must go up north for Christmas so need a warm coat just for that time. I ordered this coat for that purpose expecting it would be warm and that was it. I used to have a real mink coat that cost me over $10,000. When I received this coat from overstock I was blown away by the quality and how much it looks like real fur an maybe even better than the coat I used to have. I haven't been in the US for a few years so maybe I'm "out of it" but this coat simply amazes me. As far as fit goes, I am usually an XL. This coat is an L and it fits quite well. It may be a bit tight in the midriff but not so that it bothers me. I love Overstock. Thank you once again.
This faux fur hooded full length coat is Gorgeous!!!! It is so soft and very well made!!!! This coat really keeps you very warm while it's freezing outside!!!! There was one (1) review that said it was cheap looking! Ugh, What? No It Is Not Cheap Looking What So Ever!!!! The Price Was Great!!!!
every time I wear this coat! I think I've referred at least ten people to buy this coat. It is roomy and warm and just an outstanding coat. Huge hood. The snaps are great--buttoning a coat in winter weather is always such a pain. You will love this coat!!
Great fit, lined, quality, stylish and warmmmm.
I wore my Faux Fur coat to a ball recently & I received more compliments on my coat & not my beautiful dress (lol) thanks overstock!
Love this coat, great for Chicago cold weather, fits well I am an older woman 4'11", coat length is at the ankle rests on top of foot. It is warm, luxurious, not heavy on and I have received numerous good complements while wearing this. Construction on this coat is good and the price is right. Good buy for a classy faux fur that looks and feels like the real thing.
I purchased this coat because I wanted a long warm coat and I'm glad that I seen this one. It everything that I was wishing for.I am a 44 DD So I purchased a Xlarge and it fits perfect and also able to get a large sweater on as well. Its beautiful and stylish. Coyldnt be more pleased! Cj
I would order again. Sizing is correct. Good quality item
I highly recommend. Very soft, warm and stylish. I get compliments every time I have worn. The hood fits over whatever head gear I am wearing. The only negative I have for this coat is when i received, the bag was opened.
Very nice look and feel. If it were lined, it would be warmer.
I bought this for my wife. When she wore it for the second time the satin lining in the arm area tore.
