This coat does run small and it is tailored. I am 5'4", 125lbs. and usually wear a medium, which I ordered for this coat. The arms are somewhat tight and I certainly cannot wear a heavy sweater with it. I was thinking about exchanging it for a large but I was afraid that would be too big so I kept the coat and wear it with lighter sweaters. I was also concerned that it might be shiney because I couldn't tell by the white coat picture. I ordered the black and it is not shiney. There is also a small pocket on the inside breast, which is nice. Overall I really like this coat and it looks great. This coat comes from Canada.
