Rated 5 out of 5 by NCGirl Beautiful tailoring
This is a lovely jacket. The shape is very flattering and it is beautifully tailored. It has such nice structure without being stiff. The product photo shows the jacket unbuttoned, but that doesn't give a sense of how nicely it nips in at the waist. Also, I am NOT one for ruffles around my hips and these didn't bother me. I think I just won't snip the thread that holds the pleats in place. The pewter-colored buttons down the front and on the shoulders gives a bit of a military feel, which balances nicely with the pleats and feminine shape.
I am 5'6",125 lbs. and 34B and I got a 4.
The only caveat here is that if wool bothers you, you might need to think twice about this jacket. I intend to wear it only with long sleeves, as more of an outer wear piece, so the itchiness doesn't bother me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Linz509 Lovely Jacket
I tried on this jacket at my local anthro and loved it!! It is a beautiful jacket, very unique. I would recommend sizing one up. The only problem is, if you have sensitive skin, this jacket is not for you. I was wearing light/thin long sleeved shirt when I tried this on and it was SO scratchy all over my arms and neck. I would have bought this jacket in a heart beat, but due to the scratchiness and isn't lined it went back on the rack. Perhaps a different shirt would work, but in Southern California heavy layering is not needed.

by missinganthroinOK Too long in the sleeves
Anthro's deceptive model shots strike again! Why does Anthro insist on using model pics where the sleeves are pushed up? As you can see in my picture, these sleeves are LONG. So long, that they were a deal-breaker. As others have mentioned, the wool is also slightly itchy, not the softest in the world. It is also unlined (unlined coats really bother me). I did like the ruffle in the back and thought it was flattering. I am 5'2", 115 lbs, 34B, and I'm wearing a 2.
