Rated 5 out of 5 by AH FANTASTIC, BUT SIZES RUN SMALL
FIRST: QVC'S SIZING CHART IS MY BIBLE, AND I USE THE CHART THAT'S GIVEN ON EVERY CLOTHING ITEM I ORDER; THE BRAND DOESN'T MATTER.
THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THE SIZING CHART DIDN'T JIVE WITH THE ACTUAL GARMENT MEASUREMENT, SO I THINK MOST LADIES WILL NEED TO GO UP A SIZE ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE FULLER IN THE BUST, BUT I CAN'T SPEAK ON HOW THE JACKET IS RUNNING IN THE "PLUS" SIZES.
CHART LISTS A CHEST MEASUREMENT OF 41" IN A SIZE SMALL JACKET, BUT MINE WAS ONLY 38" IN THE CHEST - WAY TOO SNUG TO ACCOMMODATE A WINTER SWEATER. A QVC REP RE-ORDERED A SIZE MEDIUM FOR ME, AND THIS ONE IS A PERFECT FIT. NORMALLY A SIZE MEDIUM WOULD FALL OFF OF ME, SO THIS GARMENT IS DEFINITELY RUNNING SLIM. I DO HAVE TO SHORTEN THE SLEEVES ABOUT AN INCH, BUT THIS IS TYPICAL FOR ME BEING UNDER 4'8" IN HEIGHT.
I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THIS COAT BECAUSE IT CAN BE WASHED AND TUMBLE DRIED. I'VE ALREADY LAUNDERED THIS ONE, AND IT CAME OUT OF THE DRYER AS PERFECT AS IT WAS! I USED A DELICATE HEAT CYCLE, BUT DIDN'T RUN IT THE FULL LENGTH OF TIME, SO I ONLY HAD TO PULL THE SLEEVES INSIDE OUT TO FINISH DRYING. I GOT THE RASPBERRY, AND IT'S A LOVELY SHADE.
YOU'LL LOVE THIS COAT ONCE YOU GET ONE THAT FITS! HAVE PATIENCE, IT'S WORTH IT!
Rated 2 out of 5 by middleone Sleeves too long
This is a cute jacket but the sleeves are way too long for me. The whole jacket seemed a little big and too long overall. I do often wear a petite, but this size usually fits me.
Rated 3 out of 5 by NYer from LI Garment Measurements off???
Based upon stated garment measurements, this jacket should have fit with room to spare. Unfortunately it was very snug. Would not have been comfortable with winter sweaters or layered tops. Is it possible the puffiness caused less room to move inside this jacket? I did not bother to check inside and outside garment chest measurements since I will be returning this item.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Rhoda 16 big and small
Collar too high, upper arms too tight going back! Too bad I have to pay ten dollars on shipping for nothing.
Rated 3 out of 5 by quiltnutmine Nice but runs small
I'm normally an XL to 1X, depending on the garment. Ordered this in 1X so I'd have room for warm clothes under it. It fits like a sausage - very tight. I would have needed a 2X but I'm returning it instead. Don't want to mess with sizes not being what they should. I graded it "average" instead of "fair" because I like the fabric and style.
Rated 4 out of 5 by cgreen58 Just too big
Liked this jacket but was just too big. In the mail back today.

This coat is extremely warm! I'm always cold, but this coat has kept me warm in sub-zero temps this winter. It does run a bit large, but allows me to layer bulkier things underneath with ease. Really like my purchase!
Rated 5 out of 5 by greythound Warm Purchase
Purchased this in the black, which is more like charcoal. Love, love, love this jacket ! Warm in cold, windy weather on dog walks. Love the high collar which houses the zipped-in hood. Keeps you warm without overheating; also allows for layering underneath, without feeling like the "michelin man". Considering the raspberry color, also. No regrets on this jacket.
