Wish this coat was better
I fell in love with this coat on the Lane Bryant website, but it wasn't meant to last.
The inner lining of the coat was too tight while the rest of the coat fit perfectly. It was not worth going up a size-I would be swimming in the coat.
Also, much to my dismay, as mentioned in other reviews, there are no pockets! The product description states "detailed with epaulets, slash pockets and vented back.", but the pockets aren't real. Between the description and the pictures of the model, I feel like this was false advertising.
I am so glad I had this coat shipped to the store-I was able to return it right then and there.

I purchased the coat on sale in blue. It is a beautiful shade and matches the color as advertised. It is true to size and very well made. I carry weight in my arms and it fits perfectly. It has a great shape and looks nice. As for an earlier comment about the pockets being fake... well-made, taylored jackets, coats and suit jackets/pants are shipped with the pockets sewn closed. Just use tip of sharp scissors or seam ripper to open and viola! POCKETS! Love this jacket!

Love this Peacoat!
I got the blue jacket, the color is amazing and unbelievably soft! After reading the reviews, I ordered one size larger which I had to return because it was too big. The jacket runs true to size.

Arms, back and shoulders are very restricted
The blue coat is soft, comfy, vibrant, and overall beautiful. Unfortunately, as many reviewers have said this coat is very restricting around the arms. I got this coat for about $49 but it is not worth keeping it. Sorry Lane Bryant this was a miss for gals with larger arms.
