Rated 1 out of 5 by Iva2016 Fell For It...back It Goes
I should have followed the reviews on this one. I ordered a size 2 on this coat (im about 135lbs/5'3)...the coat was too big. The collar is way too big, you lose your neck and it makes it difficult to turn your head. The torso portion is wide....when belted, the fabric bunches and looks too bulky. The back of the coat is just weird. It's just not flattering at all. Reminiscent of a bathrobe. Color and fabric are nothing extraordinary ( I opted for the fawn). It's going back. Tired of paying the return shipping fees.
Rated 2 out of 5 by jassy717 G.I.L.I. Regular Notch-collared Belted coat
Beautiful coat. Very poorly proportioned. I ordered a size 18 regular because I like wrapping coats around. I'm 5'8. The coat reaches my knee, sleeves a little short. Uncomfortable! I have coats in size 10 that are better proportional for me.
Rated 2 out of 5 by SunState Had to return
This coat was a great idea, not pulled off. It is a nice material. The style was stunning on TV. However, when on the collar was just too big and overwhelming. The whole coat is just too big and not well proportioned. It was really designed for a tall model and looked good on them. Unfortunately did not work for me.
Rated 2 out of 5 by theorganizer Wanted to love, but.......
Received the coat and was dismayed that there was this huge pleat in the back. When I reviewed the video, I noticed the models never turned around. Not once. The coat fits like a sack in the back. The belt was defective with the seam binding showing outside the belt instead of folded inside. It made the coat look tacky and badly made.
Used to love GILI but the quality has gone down, as well as the design. I had to return.
Rated 4 out of 5 by fashiondi Malbec color beautifull - Style unique, but flawed
Love the color and length of the coat. I agree with other customer reviews that the shoulders run narrow and the fabric bunches up in the top on the back of the coat. However, this coat has a classy and timeless style with the wrap design, large shawl collar, fabric choice, and the satin trimmed wrap belt. I think I will keep it and make it work for me. I believe it will be very warm, and the malbec dark red color is stunning! I'm tall and the length is just below the knee - a hard length to find in a winter coat. I was on wait list for the red so I was excited to get this coat!
Rated 5 out of 5 by McCaskill Beautiful color and fit
I received the fawn in a 2x and am exceptionally pleased with the fit and length. Usually coats are too short for me. This coat drapes beautifully either belter or unbelted. I tried to get the red but the size had sold out. I have several GILI pieces and they are all well made and are high quality.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Shoppping Sista Adjustments for increased size
I as really looking forward to receiving this coat. So many times I have received the "new" GILI styles with anticipation to wear them only to get them and return them. The coat fits the body however the arm hole at the shoulders are to darn tight. If you are ginger to make clothing for plus size women (20w) please take into consideration the woman entire body. Please use more real plus size women when sizing for the GILI brand. We like great fashion too.

Loved the color ,style but the pleat in the upper back of coat is so wrong. Loved the coat so much that I brought to alteration and had the pleat sewn down. Another expense but I really liked the coat.
