This jacket is fitted at the waist as the body is loose. So please choose from your waist.
For more information on fit and sizing please visit our size guide. The measurements refer to 'your' body not the garment itself. Please choose the size that most reflects your measurements.
The fabric is a lovely shade of blue and very soft to the touch. The fit is very small at the waist; my waist is 30" so I sized up to a UK14. It looks great unbuttoned but it's very snug at the waistband so I will unfortunately be returning as I would like to have the option to fasten it.
