There appear to be a number of negative reviews for this jacket, so here goes.
Recent purchases from Centigrade have indeed been on the generous side and sadly returned.
I am a standard British size 8, five foot 3 inches I have short arms and this jacket fits me perfectly. It's light weight but plenty of room for a warm sweater underneath. Personally I'm delighted to at last have a jacket from this company that fits a smaller frame. My daughter admired it and purchased one for herself. Hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sparklingangel Lovely coat
Lovely coat, so I read the reviews to make up my mind. Was looking for a coat for work to get from car park to destination but needed a hood. Read reviews but was unsure what to do as all reviews say the sizes are not as stated, much smaller. Decided to go for it and ordered a size up than I would normally, I'm size 16/18 and normally get L or XL, I got the 2XL and fits ok. I've measured the coat on bust and it measures the size of the XL even though it's a 2XL, so if you love the look of this coat buy a size up than you normally would. Hope this helps

Rated 2 out of 5 by pwdain Bad across shoulder fit
I'm in the process of packing for a refund my fourth attempt at trying to get a 'fit' with this garment!!! Lovely coat ...but oo.oo.oo.what are Centigrade doing to solving their fitting problems? ..reading so many reviews about a bad 'fit ' on their garments' one would hope.for a response from Centigrafe by now! It is costing loyal customers a fortune in "RETURNS" postage. Please Centigrade have a listen to our protests!!.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ras60 Tight Arms
I wanted this to work so much as I needed a light weight coat to cover up the length of my uniform which it did , but the arms are too tight so sadly I`m returning it.
It was a nice shade of navy too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ricky65 Poor Fit
Having read the other reviews, I still decided to give this coat a chance, because it was on clearance and on 4 easy payments. I'm a size 16, but given the reviews that said normal size was coming up small, I decided to go up not one, but two sizes. I tried it on over a thick jumper and it fastened/looked fine. However, it is tight across the arms if you reach out. So, unless you can walk around with your arms by your side the whole time you wear it, I would not recommend. Pity, I usually find Centigrade is generous. I don't think if I'd ordered by usual size, it would have fit (especially over thick jumpers etc).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Margo2005 Sizing Incorrect
The coat is in my opinion a good buy but only gave it 4 stars as the sizing is not accurate. It is out by almost 3" across the chest. I have had to send it back and due to other reviews wont chance buying a larger size. Its a shame as I liked it. QVC are sending a pre paid label as the description is wrong.
