sizing is off
I am between a M and an S with a larger chest and small waist. The instructions said to order down if unsure so I did and got a small. Unfortunately I cannot close the top buttons but it fits perfectly at the waist. I have had problems here before ordering a M - it ended up being VERY large - so I figured this was foolproof. I will try exchanging it for a M and using the corset to cinch the waist the way I would like it. It is a beautiful unique coat but I have to give it 2 stars because the fit is so strange.

tricky proportions many measurements
i''m 5''8 135 lbs. i ordered the small because i am small boned especially in the upper body.the beautiful packaging quality of the coat led me to quickly remove the tags convinced it was the perfect coat.then i realized the upper back chest were too tight. i had the 4 buttons reduced to 2 had them moved to give my chest more roomthe upper back is tight when i put my elbows together in front of me but the shoulder seams are perfect in a larger size would make my shoulders look wider than they are. also the circumference of the shoulder is too large creating a gap between me the coat. between the gap in the side of the bust the tight front of the bust the coat creates the illusion that my chest is flatter wider than it actually is - definitely not the feminine look i expected from an old-fashioned women''s riding coat style. i will likely reduce it to a single button between my chest waist - between the original two rows of buttons.there is a significant discrepancy between th

I can''t tell you how many compliments I get on this coat. When I received it and tried it on it was big I am a small and that''s what I ordered. But not disappointed for long when I realized that the ties in the back were loose. I adjusted them and I cannot be happier! This coat is so flattering. I wear it with boots and heels. On top of that it is warm for NJ winters! I will keep this for many years to come. I love it!!

Way Too Big
I ordered a size S expecting to get something roughly corresponding to a size 4-6. The product that I received had to be around a 10. I would call it a roomy medium if not a large. I have to pinch several inches of fabric in order for it to look like its supposed to. I thought perhaps it had been a shipping error and I had received the wrong size I checked the label and sure enough it said SM.If you are truly a S then you are out of luck with this lovely coat. Other than the huge size discrepancy this is a pretty and well made coat. I am very disappointed that I won''t be able to wear it.
