Great statement coat, but runs HUGE!

I used my Unlimited membership to get this coat for NYE. It's great quality and a total statement piece, but it runs very large. I've found other Elizabeth and James to run small, but that is definitely not the case for this. I'm a curvy girl, so someone who is petite might drown in this. I could've gone down at least 2 sizes. Just going to wear it for one night, so I'll push through.

Nice statement piece

Runs large, go down one size. Wish sleeves were a tad longer. This coat fabric is thinner than what it appears like in pics, so it's nit as heavy as a wool coat. Will rent again.

Such a great coat!

Oh my gosh! I love this coat. I get so many compliments on it. It does run large. So if that's not your style, then you probably won't like it.

Very oversized

This coat was just as gorgeous in person as it was in the photo. Unfortunately, even in the smallest size the coat was too big for me. The quality was amazing and the fabric was so soft that it was a total shame that I was not able to wear it.

Live your best Olsen Twin life in this coat

I usually stay away from animal print since it can go horribly wrong but I love this coat. It is huge so size down. It's more of a blanket coat (on me anyways) but it's so comfortable and effortlessly chic. I wore it everywhere and with everything. Tons of compliments.

I wear this jacket with everything. Its very stylish.

Super comfy and matches fancy and casual. I really like this. It sort of needs to be brushed though, otherwise the fake hair looks a bit wrangled.

OMG. Too many street comments!

I LOVED THIS COAT, BUT. Ultimately it had to go back sooner than I would have liked because every time I wore it, it made every random person on the street want to talk to me. As a introverted-nerd, I hated having to make small-talk and smile at every stranger that would yell compliments at me, or walk with me for 4-blocks, to talk about the coat. (Seriously, this happened.) Awesome coat, slouchy, versatile enough to dress up, wear with leggings, or anything in between. The material used was a smart choice, it was the kind of fabric that almost looked better the more worn it was. If you like lots of attention, or chit-chatting with strangers -- this is THE perfect coat for YOU.

Beautiful coat, but runs very large.

The coat is just as arresting in person as it is in the photos, I would strongly suggest ordering at least 2 sizes down. I usually wear a 10 in dress, but an 8 in outerwear. An 8 wasn't available at the time of ordering so I tried my luck with a 6 and that was still at least a size too large, even taking into account that the coat is meant to be a relaxed fit.

Amazingly stylish

I feel like a fancy Cruella Deville when I wear this coat. Always get compliments. Warmer than you'd think!

Attention grabbing and unique

The fit runs a little large or boxy so size down if you want a tailored fit otherwise the style is very loose and casual. The material could benefit from being brushed out with a suede brush or something with short stiff hairs. I couldn't be bothered and it looked fine without as well. It's a little hard to match clothes with and you definitely have to be comfortable in your own skin to wear. One of those pieces that's fun to have for a few days but I wouldn't invest long term in because it's not versatile.

Loved the snake-like pattern

The jacket is oversized but runs a little big. I'm in between sizes 8-10, but since I'm on unlimited, I tend to size up to be on the safe side that an item fits. That being said, this one did feel a little too big for a size 10 (even if it's an oversized design). I'll rent a size smaller (8) next time, but for the day that I did wear it, I received several compliments. I couldn't tell whether the fabric was overworn or that's how it is supposed to appear, so I'll have to try a different size and get back to folks.

Loved the Leopard

I loved the leopard! The coat kind of swallowed me, but I didnt care because i loved the print so much i just decided to go with it. I am 5'3 so it was pretty long on me. Got tons of compliments and really loved wearing it. I would rent this again for the rigjt occassion.

Perfection! Warm, fuzzy, classy, elegant..

I normally wear L or XL coats, size 14-16. But seeing other reviewers state how large this coat runs I took my chances with the only available size at the time, size 10. It fit, it buttoned up, sleeves were a little short but it just might be part of this style. Overall wven a size 10 fit, which was about 2-3 sizes smaller than my usual size. I'm 5'7" and was 5'10" with heels and the length was perfect. Like a tea length in dresses. I love loved loved this coat. Goes with any print, any occasion. I'm going to see if i can snag it on sale one day. Obsessed.

Best coat ever. I received tons of compliments.

I sized down to a size 2 because of the reviews and it was still a tad large. Regardless, this was the best coat I've ever worn. Will rent again and possibly buy.

Warm and beautiful coat

I loved this and held on to it for almost 2 months. It goes well with a lot of things and was perfect for work, even when I had to wear a suit jacket under it.

Great for trip to Europe

Perfect for Austria, was too thin for Iceland. I definitely felt like I stood out. Was just warm enough but not very warm. The fabric is more felted wool and not thick wool. It survived a massive snowstorm, though!

Runs large

Rented the large, as my long arms typically necessitate a larger size. The large was massive. Couldn't wear as it looked like a sack.

Fun coat to transition from winter to spring

Really liked this coat and it added some fun to a boring work outfit. It was warm enough for March, one those colder days, but light and loose enough where you weren't sweating. The only thing is the fabric itself is a bit worn

Favorite thing I've ever rented

I loved this coat so much, I almost bought it. It fit true to size, with room for a sweater/layers underneath on a really cold day. Seems perfect for 40s. The wool is soft, the lining is silky, the snaps go all the way up to the neck to keep you warm. Just felt great in it!

Warm and well covered.

Wore for a spring trip to Chicago, kept me decently warm in 40F degree weather. I loved the length of this coat. I recommend sizing down.

I sized down two sizes and it fit perfectly. Love the print and cut--looks expensive! The fur is a little worn, could use a brushing.

This is a lovely, midweight coat. It is supposed to have an over sized fit, so keep that in mind when ordering. I got tons of compliments.

Cool coat, lots of compliments

Definitely size down - even two sizes down would still fit. Cool coat.
