Satin down coat
I got this coat in a store closing sale. I am only 5' 2" and the next size up was half way down my calves. I bought one size larger than what I would normally wear because the fit was not quite right and am still having the same issue with the oddly small and tight underarms I have seen in many other of the reviews. The coat looks great, its warm, it is comfortable and actually slightly too big because of the size I got, other than the underarms which easily become painfully tight in winter clothes.
If I had not gotten it so extremely cheap I would be very unhappy.

Ohhh so warm
I am 5'3" and weight 235. This is sexy, warm and very comfy. It constantly has white feathers poking out of it and when I take it off, there feathers on my clothes, when wearing dark colors, it is annoying. Plus, the outer shell always looks somehow like it is dusty. Two other cons are that the inner pocket does not seal and the hood is so big that it will not stay up in wind. I am in a windy lakeshore area and in the winter, I want a hood to stay on!

I ADORE this coat! However, I've had it about a month now, and I notice that little tiny white feathers keep coming out of it and onto my clothes. But it keeps me warm, is very stylish and form fitting. I can't wear anything bulky like a jacket underneath it but It looks amazing on.

So disappointed with fit
I usually don't have any problems ordering online and when I saw this coat and it arrived I fell in love with it. Despite the postings about the feathers (I somehow think all down coats do that) I was disappointed with the underarm fit. Even with the skinniest sweater on, the fit was just too tight and uncomfortable. Everything else I loved about the coat. Real bummer.
