So the Via Military Coat (size XS) from Victoria Secret came by the other day. I was excited to see how the coat would fit on me. It had all the conditions I wanted in a coat: mid-thigh length, a bit of an A-line flare towards the bottom, slim sleeves, and a great color.
When I tried it on…
…it was HUMUNGOUS!
The fit of the coat was bigger than the one from fredflare.com. Even though I loved the style and the overall shape, it did nothing for me. The only good part about the coat was the color and the length, everything else was too wide.
It’s a bit hard to tell from the pictures, but there’s about a 1″ gap in the shoulders. The waist could be taken in over 5″ and the sleeves are maybe 2″ too long. If I took this coat to the tailors, it would be too expensive for me to justify this purchase.
So, back to VS it goes…and I’m once again back to the beginning.
When will I find my perfect winter coat?
