I originally ordered a size large, which ended up being way too big on me. The medium fit perfectly!! I think I'll even be able to wear sweaters underneath. But if not, I also purchased the Ginger hooded jacket in pearl lagoon, which is also perfect for more dressed down outfits. I am 5'4'', 180 pounds. If ordering, I would size down. The second I saw this coat, I knew I had to have it. I had to wait for my size to come in stock, but was well worth the wait! I even love the specific coat that I ended up with, with the fur having sort of an over effect. My only negative is the pockets. However, it's like a pro/con situation. It is great that the coat has pockets, but being reservable, the pockets show if you wear the coat unbuttoned. However, I more than likely will always wear the coat buttoned and would like to keep the pockets. You could always have the pockets removed. Otherwise, love this coat!!!
