I’m thoroughly frustrated with the process of finding a coat. I thought this would be more fun! I’m looking to update from my old wool coat to something new as i haven’t shown in 14 years; i have everything but the coat. I’m 5’0", 105 pounds which leads to the sizing nightmare.
I bought the Grand Prix Quinn sz 8 and it was sent to me in the mail. Well… it’s getting sent back! The length and sleeves fit but i was busting out of it in all other places. Not to mention, i didn’t think the fabric was all that great (too shiny and kinda ugly.) I have tried on EVERYTHING-- the closest was the Grand Prix Classic 10 slim short-- but it was too long-- $400 for too long seems like a bad idea. For some reason, RJ didn’t fit at all but maybe i tried the wrong coats? They were too loose in a 0. RJ child’s coats fit in a 16 but seemed boxy and i didn’t like the fit.
So, now i found this Asmar Wellington soft shell on sale online. I’m probably an XS. One caveat: it’s non-returnable and who knows what it looks like on! I will buy it if someone has glowing reviews and believes the size is a match.
Any suggestions, thoughts ladies?
