A312951 - Via Spiga Pillow Collar Down Coat
The coat looks very stylish but the top snap keeps opening. I ordered a large which fits except for the top snap. The belt streches out too much which does not define my waist. It's very stylish but doesn't fit properly.
LOVE COAT BUT RUNS WAY TOO SMALL!
This is one of the most stylish down coats I have seen. I could not wait to receive it. I ordered up a size and the bust area is way too tight. Hated to send it back. I would have bought a larger size to be able to own it but it is not available. Please get sizes above a size Large and I will try again.
not what I expected
I ordered this coat after reading other reviews and sized up. I normaly wear a small in QVC sizes , I am 5'7". This coat is very tight across the chest area and I am not big chested woman. Also it is too short for a coat and too long for a jacket. The buckle on the belt did not work properly, getting stock all the time. As for collar , I think may be it needs an extra button or something to keep your neck covered. Unfortunatly, I will be sending mine back.
This coat is a designer coat. It will not fit like an average sizing coat. I am petite. as small women XS fit just right and true to size. It it is fashionable. The belt and buttons comes with a shiney clip infront, just have to be careful not to scratch it up. With time I could see this happening. all poly. with a small percent of down. I wore it out with 19 degree weather and it keep me warm. As for Collar you can put a scarf around you neck and pull the pillow collar up or down it looks really chic.
In the XS...it was actually too big on me through the chest, waist and hips. Also, there are no knit cuffs on the sleeves to keep out the cold and were a little short on me....plus they kind of belled out of a little which was odd. The pillow collar seemed odd but versatile as you could fold it back or bring it forward but if the coat doesn't fit all that well to begin with then it is useless as your neck and chest are not protected as was the case with the XS I tried on. About the belt....it was also too big! If it had been made smaller it would have cinched me in nicely for that hourglass shape but nope it looked really awful and the coat actually looked better without a belt. Via Spiga's sizing seems to be all over the place as another style of jacket was too small in the XS...
I disagree with the other review regarding size. I think the coat is true to size based on what they provide. I ordered up a size based off the comment and the coat was way too big. So now I have to return and order a Medium. Perhaps if you are REALLLY busty you may need to to go up a size but if you are average I think your normal size will work as the coat is meant to be tailored and conforming to the body. But I do agree that it is a great coat.
This coat runs small
Nicely made coat and very warm but if you order, be sure to go one size up. This is a fitted coat and it runs very small in the chest area...
