Rated 5 out of 5┬áby planetqueen Adorable cozy jacket
I got this jacket in the gray in SP. I'm 5' tall, size 4, 32DD. The jacket is generously sized except for the sleeves. It zips easily over my chest with enough room to layer, but the sleeves only fit well over a lightweight sweater or top. The sleeves are also a bit too long, but I have short arms so I don't think that will be a problem for others. The gray is a great neutral, it's more of a taupe that goes with pretty much anything. I love the elastic at the back waist, which gives it a bit of shape. The fabric is super soft and it's Sherpa-lined through the body and hood for extra warmth. It's machine washable, too! The pockets have a side opening, so you can slip your hands in without unsnapping them, but also have the snap compartments where you can stash things without worrying about losing them. The only thing I'm not thrilled about is where the pockets hit on me. Because I'm so petite, the pockets hit mid-hip and make my hips look wide when the jacket is zipped up. Maybe it's all in my mind, but I wish there was elastic on the sides also, for a bit more shape. I'm more likely to wear it unzipped, so it's not a huge issue. I live in a warm climate, so this will work well for me in spring, fall and most of winter. The design is classic so I'll get years of wear out of it. I would definitely recommend this one. It is true to size, but if you want to layer it over anything bulky, you may want to size up.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby JaneMo Arms run small and short!
I want to love this hoodie. I picked up the small in my local store today and when I tried it on again at home I realized the sleeves are a couple inches shorter than I'd like them to be. I'm 5' 4", so not exceptionally long and when I straighten my arms out in front a good 2.5 inches of my wrist is exposed. I prefer my cozy hoodies to cover my wrists well. I am going to head back to the store to see how the medium size works instead, I'm just hoping it fits because this jacket feels like a total dream and the peach dot detail is so cute.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby Tati316 Didn't work for me
I was so excited to try on this jacket. It looks adorable on the hanger and is clearly well-made with great details. Unfortunately, the cut of the jacket did not work for me at all. I often wear XS, but know with this brand I'm usually a small. I tried on the small, and the sleeves were too form-fitting to wear anything but a thin shirt underneath. Meanwhile, the body of the jacket, which is lined with sherpa unlike the sleeves, was very loose and a bit bulky. It wasn't flattering. I think this jacket would work best on people who are very straight and slender all around.
