Rated 5 out of 5Â by yosemite Runs Small
First time I tried this on in my usual size, 0 or 2. It was way too restricting so I moved on. I later saw it in the store again and wanted to try it in a larger size. I tried a 6 and love it. I like that I can bend my arms and move around, it doesn't feel so tight. Getting a larger size makes the waist seam lie above my hips, which I like. The puffy bottom is then puffed out lower instead of at the waist. People mention not liking the bunching at the pockets but I'm pretty sure that's the way it was meant to be designed. Happy with this blazer, it can be dressed up or down. Perfect with jeans on casual Fridays!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by EtreEtant Not so great
I had high hopes for this jacket--- the print is cute, it's got a nice lining, and it seems to be made well. But when I put it on, it did not work at all--- looked like a middle school home ec project gone wrong. Maybe would look cuter on smaller people, but on tall, thin gals like me, it just looks weird and shrunken...

Rated 3 out of 5Â by GidgetGoesHawaiian Shrunken cut is not flattering
I am normally a 6 petite. I tried this in both a regular 6 and an 8. The 8 fit, so it runs a little small, but my real issue was the proportions. The jacket is shrunken/petite, so even though I am petite, the peplum effect hit me in the middle of my rib cage and when I closed it, it gave the illusion that it was too small - like I was trying to squeeze into a chld's jacket. It is not obvious online since the model is wearing it wide open.
