I am 5'8 180lbs and I bought the black XL size, and I was worried when I read all of the reviews that were on here about the coat being too short and too small, but when my jacket arrived in the mail today I tried it on and it was not as short as I thought it was going to be but it is definitely not a jacket that covers your backside if your built like me. But besides that the jacket fits me like a glove. I was worried that I wasn't going to be able to zip it up because of my bust size but the coat has a stretchy feel to it when you put it on so it's not too tight and its not too big, so there is no marshmallow effect. But everyone has a different body type and the only advice that I could give to anybody that plans on buying this jacket is that If you are going to be worried about the length of the jacket or the size, go a size bigger than what you usually wear. The only negative thing about this jacket is that I wish they had this jacket in XXL so that it could have been just a little bit longer. And if you are looking for a jacket that hides your backside and gives you a little bit more coverage this is the wrong jacket for you. And if you are one of those people that plan on "hiding" behind your jacket for winter this is not the right coat for you as well. And I love the fact that you can remove the fur from the hood, but I like the fur because it gives the jacket so much detail. I hope the review I gave helps somebody out there because If it wasn't for all of the reviews on this site I would have never bought this jacket.
