I wish this coat had fit me. I am extremely pear shaped. 16/18 top, small waist but 26 hips in pants so I always go for fit and flare dresses. I thought this coat looked fit and flare but it didn't work out that way. I purchased the 3X. It was too big on top and too small on the bottom. I was dissappinted because it is a very very nice coat. The lining being 'fur' felt like it would be very warm which I was looking for. I think if you are a bit less extreme in your figure this coat would fit. It is a very upscale looking coat.
I have been looking and looking for two winter coats forever. A dressy one for events I need to go to in the winter and one to wear for work etc. I live in the mountains of Maryland and I am sick of being cold. Plus I am extremely pear shaped. 16/18 top, narrow waist and then for pants a 26 because of my hips. As you can imagine it has been a real challenge. This coat is fantastic. First of all it is beautiful, so well made and very warm and feels so soft and really looks like a real fur coat. It has one large button on the top. Then instead of just hook and eye closures that can open, this has closers that flip up then down for a positive lock. I am 5'4" and it brushes the top of my shoes. Very very very high end and elegant. EXACTLY what I hoped for. The attached hood is perfect with a slight fold back. The fit is close into my body at the shoulders and chest and then lightly skims down over my hips. I probably could get the 2X but the length is soooo nice. And some of my formal dresses and floor length so it will be nice to have them protected from the harsh weather. very very lease and highly recommend this coat.
It's a bit too rubber-like. And the cut is more man-like. Loose on top and straight, then too tight on the very bottom with no stretch. I need something that can fit over my hips, shaped more for a woman, more "A-line" I think. the top was loose and the back was baggy, but could not fit over my butt or hips at all.
This coat is perfect for coat winters. It is HEAVY which is good when you need extra warmth. The hood is great and stays put when you need it. The clasps don't always stay closed so I occasionally have to re-close. I'm 5'4" and the coat hangs to just about the top of my boots. This coat was a lifesaver when waiting for the bus in the winter.
