The jacket is gorgeous, great quality fabrics. I would have loved to keep it. I have had to return it as the fit is extremely poor. The waist is ridiculously high. I wear size 18 and there is no provision for any bust allowance at all. When one tries to tighten the waist to create a silhouette one ends up with the string tightening under the bust. It seems for the larger size the width may have been increased and the overall length increased but the ratio of bust to waist to hip has not been taken into account adequately to make a reasonable fit.
