The jacket is true to size or if I was to be extra critical I'd say on the smaller side- however the silowette has a lovely slightly tapered waist, which makes me feel polished. It's warm and soft, without the bulk and the feeling of drowning in puffiness or weight. The extended cuff sleeves with the thumb hole is fun and useful! The pockets are deep enough that things don't fall out even when left open. I love the soft cotton collar when it's zipped all the way, it feels like my favourite hoodie is underneith! The length is perfect for covering my behind but not so long as I feel I'm wearing a dress coat. If I could add one thing to make this coat 100% perfect, it would be size zippers to open when you sit down. The coat isn't restricting, just a personal preference! I'd still buy the coat again!
