Rated 5 out of 5 by Thinnerbyhalf Love this jacket
Originally tried this on in store in green, decided to order the blue. Only slightly disappointed that the blue one was a bit of a snug fit (tighter than the green). It's lightweight but still surprisingly warm. Love it

Rated 3 out of 5 by ClaireEM great quality but far too small
I usually wear a UK10, sometimes a 12 at a push due to my DD chest. Anyway, I ordered this in a 12 after reading reviews on here about the size coming up small. After trying it on, it was a great style and perfect for my height (5'5) but the arms were very tight fighting, especially as i was wearing a camisole when I tried it on! it was snug around the chest when zip zipped up, I think this jacket has come up AT LEAST one size too small. I love the jacket and may order a 14, reluctantly but anyone reading this, order the next size up and if you have a larger chest, order 2 sizes up!! if you don't, you will have to be wearing very little to nothing underneath. The arms are this thick elastic type material underneath, which is great and will probably stretch but I found it quite uncomfortable and stiff

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maj1968 Classy jacket
I wanted a smart padded jacket and this fitted the bill. I tried a 14 on in store and it was slightly on the small side especially if you want to wear a jumper underneath therefore I decided to go up a size to a 16 which fits perfectly. The jacket is really smart and warm and my partner even remarked on how much he liked it. I think I will be getting lots of wear from this jacket. Thank you M &S.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alnwickgirl Padded Jacket
This was just the type of jacket I wanted . It wasn't available in my local store so I ordered on line. I ordered size 14 which is my usual fit, however, I was very disappointed to find that it fitted very snugly with only a long sleeve t-shirt on, so there was no way I could wear even a fine jumper under it. I'm only 5'6" but it felt short in the body so unfortunately I had to return it. The quality was very good and it was a very nice style but it just didn't fit. I will try the larger size - if I can find one - but I am still disappointed that sizings are so variable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Reviewfromnorthants Disappointing
I agree with other reviewers regarding sizing of this jacket. if you want a tight fit buy your normal size, but you will only get something lightweight underneath. The pros: looks OK from a distance. Cons: zips look brassy and cheap, pocket openings too small so you cannot get your hand in, very short in length, elasticated panels were puckering already and were not inserted straight, so this would lead to a loss of shape before too long. Not worth the money as far as I am concerned, so have returned.
