I like this coat so much I paid full price for it rather than buying it on sale or at a store like Marshalls or TJ Maxx (or ebay). The Miette is a beauty: it looks and feels well made, with high quality material and thoughtful and stylish details. I get a ridiculous number of compliments when I wear this coat. It is slightly fitted so it looks dressy and slimming. I am always looking for sizing tips in reviews, so here are my stats: I am 55 years old, 5'2", 114 pounds. (34-29-34) I have an athletic build with broad shoulders, so I ordered both the S and the M. I like plenty of room across my back, but eventually I settled on the Small because it fit best overall. The buttonholes on the medium were tighter than the buttonholes on the small--they probably would have loosened up, but if I had bought the medium I would noted the tight buttonholes as a small drawback. I have other Merrell coats (too many!!) and in some I wear a medium rather than the small. But that's because of my shoulders and preference for larger rather than smaller fit.
