This vest is beautiful, for ME it did not work. I am 5'6" and wear a small or XS in most everything, though I have weird narrow hips and this vest was to roomy in the waist and hip for me. I got the small as my bust area requires the small but the waist was to roomy and the XS would be snug in the bust. So, sadly, I had to return it . It is so worth the price as it is spectacular and I wish it would have worked for me. The packaging was beautifully done. One thing though, my other overland items that have fox trim had a more substantial fluff of real fur, this vest seemed slightly thin on the fur.
