I have broad shoulders like a line backer,long arm's and a substantially large bone frame compared to most all females. I have been stuck in men's clothing most of my life due to my long torso & arms ect... This is a Godsend!!! Absolutely perfect,I've never been so proud of a purchase in all my life. I adore how this jacket fits and how warm it is. Took 35 years to find a coat to make me feel like a lady and not look like just one of the guy's! To say I'm ecstatic is a vast understatement. I'm in love!! I tried so many other brands/plus sized items only for em all to fall short. I'm so Thankful the search has ended! If you'd consider yourself a Butch,Iron Maiden,Amazonian type gal as I do myself you can buy this and rest assured you will have a great coat for many years to come that's flattering and warm enough for normal below zero activities outside,MN women approved!
