I'm 5'7", thin but busty. The coat is gorgeous, absolutely love it but I have to return the M I ordered for a L. The arm length is just a tad short, the overall length is great but the closures pull across my chest and doesn't look appropriate. I gave it a 4 because it really is a stunning coat but I'm not thrilled to deal with the hassle of returning it. My advice is if you think you'll be between sizes, go with 1 size up. Even if it did fit across my chest, the arms are still a little short and I could not wear anything heavy like a sweater under it.
I was a bit worried about the sizing based on other reviews I read. I am a UK size 14 which is probably a US 12 so thought it was a bit risky ordering a size L as it seemed the reviews seemed to indicate that if you were a US 12 you would do better to get an XL.. However I need not have worried it fits perfectily with enough room for a cardi or jumper for the really cold days. My main concern was around warmth and I although I have not warn it out yet after trying it on for a couple of minutes I was baking so took that as just right. Overall great purchase for the price tag.
The vest itself is cute and seems to be average quality (won't fall apart immediately, but isn't bomb-proof either), and the stitching adds a nice touch. It fits nice excpet is a little snug around my chest (I ordered a M and am a 36C), so I imagine a L would fit better in the chest, but then would likely be too big everywhere else. I don't want to pay for more shipping, though, because for that price I could have gotten something really nice from **** or the like. So I'm going to keep it and will just have to wear it under thinner shirts. Oh, also, the pocket openings are kind of small, so my hands don't really fit in there comfortably.
That's a nice coat, good quality , nice color and material (80 % wool). The color is dark purple. It is true to size. I wear 10, but I ordered L, and it looked bit large on me. Returned it. Might order size M later. If you want to wear a sweater underneath it might work for you.
