This jacket looks great in the picture, but not so great on. It's junior's sizing, so you have to go up at least one size. Even after sizing up, I could barely zip this over my chest and it made me look like an old nanny up top. If you have a flat chested, athletic build this jacket would look great, but it was definitely not made for girls with boobs.
Too small up top, good for sticks
I am not a big person - 5'8" and 128 lbs. Small bust. This jacket is so cute and good in many ways, I wanted it to work. The length is great, down over hips for warmth and style. the problem is, as I saw when I found this on another site, it's tailored for juniors rather than anyone with shape. Thus, the cut in the top is really slim - no room for any chest, and tight across the shoulders and upper arms in size Medium, wearing just a t-shirt. I've never had that happen on me before - most tops have way too much upstairs for my build. The way the chest pockets are placed, it doesn't flatter the figure - a little too high to add to the hourglass figure, just looks lumpy and odd. I don't get it. I am so determined to make it work, that I'm going to exchange for a large and see if that works. If I get around to updating this, I'll let you know how it went. Already, I'm sure the arms will be way too long - I have long arms and this size medium is already a long sleeve covering the top of my hand, just the way I like it. Size large will probably be knuckles dragging, but we'll just see!
