I had been wanting a new coat for a little bit because my other one is too big, and I wanted something that was lightweight for the next few months. The coat I bought in October was a size 22/24. Today I bought a LARGE jacket which was a size 12/14. The jacket is not even tight. It looks so much more flattering that my winter coat. Just for kicks I tried on the medium coat, and I could almost wear it!!! Do I ever in my life recall being able to wear a medium? NO.
