Rated 1 out of 5 by CatWoman4 NO 'BOOB' ROOM!
Yet another item from this range for women who are flat-chested or are an A cup. With the zip done up I couldn't move my arms sideways without discomfort around the bust area. When will clothing designers learn that any upper-body women's garment needs more room in the front than the back -for obvious reasons! I gave this 1 star as I liked the colour. Another waste of postage to return it. I'm not buying anything else from this range. Outerwear needs to be comfortable and accommodating, both for bust room & other clothing underneath.

Rated 1 out of 5 by vamps Not up to standard
Received the large in black this morning and it's going straight back tomorrow. I'm a size 16 so got the large. The coat fits perfectly but it's the quality that let's it down.
1. It was delivered in a plastic bag not in a box as coats should be sent to to customers.
2. It was very badly creased and looked like a rag.
3. There were lots of loose threads and the finish was poor.
4. The fur on the hood was matted. It looked like, a dead rat. No amount of brushing made it look any better.
5. The inside removable lining was thin so you could never wear it separately as advertised.
On the whole this felt and looked like a very cheap coat. It didn't look as if there had been any quality control whatsoever. So it's going back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mrskanga Not right fit for me
I have had several centigrade coats over the years that have fitted and lasted well. I still have a great feather and down one which I bring out in really cold weather and washes like a dream. I was looking to replace a centigrade coat which sadly wore out after several years which was flattering,sturdy and stylish. I hoped this might be the one as there really wasn't anything else in the range that I liked but sadly no! I found the fit unflattering tight across the chest too big across the hip, slightly too short and I'm only 5ft 2! unlike some reviews i did not have a problem with the sleeves. The fur lining was lovely but I just looked like a bear and I'm only size 12/14. I loved the colour but sadly decided to return the coat. I hope that the buyers take note of the reviews as I would like them to include more traditional light weight quilted coats like the ones they used to, right length and detachable hood.. I know fashions change but unfortunately they have nothing for me this year and I have had to go to high street Agh!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ORCHID44 Two in one quilted Coat!
I absolutely love this soft filled coat. I am not keen on down and feather as I get too hot when going into shops in town. I am 36" chest and purchased the xs 40" chest which is fine as don't need anything too thick under coat as it has a very soft comfortable furry lining. It will be my go to coat for all seasons!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anie22 A real snuggle coat
Reading some of the other reviews I'm guessing this coat is loved more by those, who like myself, hate the really heavy, claustrophobic feel some coats have. I love the light weight feel, especially as the soft lining gives it that added warmth. I found it to be just as described and I actually like it more than I thought I would. The length is perfect as it goes well with jeans or skirts/dresses. In addition it is right on the money for what is in at the moment, fashion wise. Also had a lot of people comment on how nice it looks. I went for the black and can see this becoming my 'go to' coat this winter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ThatdarlingHollyGolightly Not great!
I was looking for a light (in colour) coat to replace a Centigrade coat, no longer available in Winter White.
I ordered the Almond and packed it straight back.
It's got a dull, dirty look to the colour, the coat is flimsy, so I would only recommend a different colour if you want something ultra light weight that isn't too warm. Sadly I also ordered a different coat, also in Almond, thinking I'd decide between the two. It's yet to arrive, but will be going back as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by shops4me flimsy outer fabric
Disappointed in the flimsy feel of the fabric.
Light weight and good in fit and useful that the hood , fur edging and the lining can be removed.
But I don't feel it is up to the job and might look tired and worn very quickly.
Already packed up and sent back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by topsandgrownun Lovely cosy coat
Delighted with this coat. Good length, and not bulky. I agree with other reviews in that the hood falls too far forward with the fur attachment to the extent you can't see where you're going but when this fur is removed the hood is just the right size. The zip out fur lining feels soft and cosy and extends into the hood. As other reviews have remarked with the fur lining zipped in you can miss the arm holes when putting it on but this may not happen once you get used to it. I think this coat is excellent quality, well made with a substantial zip and zip pull. I am a size 14 and bought the medium which is a good fit. The almond is a lovely cream shade. This is my fourth Centigrade coat and they wash well on a cool wash and cool tumble dry. Excellent value for money.
