Just to clarify, I wanted a long winter coat but it's only available in standard version, no petite one and I'm 5'2 and they all manufacture it for 5'7 and taller women :( Thus unfortunately the coat ends below my middle calf instead of under the knees.
I think it looks nice but I am not sure. My mother said it's huge on me but it's a winter PADDED coat and she hates long coats so she's biased too.
The shop advised to actually go for LARGER size but I dismissed that and went with my classic, usual size. Should I size down, look for another coat or keep this one?
Seriously? Most people picked "it's fine"? It's way too long in the arms, it's too wide in the shoulders, and you had to cinch the belt a lot because it's too big in the torsos. It is meant for someone taller too. Looks like you're wearing a sleeping bag.
The arms do look longer but when I put my arms forward or up, the sleeves drop down quite a lot.
It is a padded coat so it looks bigger but the shoulders fit me well. The belt is cinched just a little, I'd like it to be cinched more (the belt came with the coat, that's the look).
As a petite woman who lives in a small country, I don't really have many shop options that offer petite range.
