I really wanted this to fit. Should have ordered up a size considering the fit description. Really only will fit a thin layer under in the arms which run thinner than the rest of the jacket. The body fits nicely and is long enough for my taller frame. Order up a size if you want to wear long sleeves or sweatshirt weight for layering since it is a thin coat, but I hope it is warm enough. Haven't worn it outside yet, but plan on returning for the larger size.
I searched for a jacket just like this one for months. I am so glad I bought this coat. The inside lining is incredibly soft and very warm. The jacket is exactly true to size maybe runs a tad on the larger side if you are wearing a light shirt. This is a great winter jacket and it's refreshing to find a stylish, comfortable and yet practical jacket in plus sizes. I'll definitely be ordering from Free Country again.
I have narrow shoulders (14/16 US top) and wide hips (18/20 US hip). Nothing straight off the rack ever fits me, but this is a perfect fit! It is a mid-weight jacket which is excellent for Northern California winters. It is breathable and resists water well. I am extremely happy with it.
This coat has everything a girl could want - except for cuffs inside the lower sleeve. I'm 5'6", 220 lbs, wear 18/20 (1X). I always buy 2X coats as I like to layer but after reading the reviews (someone mentioned tight sleeves) I went up to a 3X. Wow - plenty roomy everywhere but it's not falling off and doesn't look sloppy. I can wear a full zip fleece jacket underneath, no problem. I love the double zipper but with the extra room in the hips, I won't need to unzip when I sit down. Awesome, roomy pockets both inside and out! Love how the standup collar allows me to tuck my chin inside. It's so lightweight but incredibly warm and water & wind proof (believe me, I've tested it!!). It's well constructed and feels very durable. The sleeves are nice and long - fall to my mid-palm. The hood fits just right - not too big. It's simply a great, great coat. Buy it while you still can.
Love the length and two way zipper. Also love that it's warm, but not bulky. Flattering fit. More color options would be great. I have a shorter softshell jacket I have been wearing three years. Still looks new!
