Rated 3 out of 5 by Cattiva Not for broad shoulders
I absolutely loved this coat, both in the magazine and in person. I am 5', 120lbs, with broad shoulders. The small petite fit perfectly everywhere but when I flexed my arms. No give, very tight, no room to move! If I stood straight without moving my arms, it was wonderful! This coat probably works on narrower framed individuals. I also tried the medium petite and it was too big all the way around. The small petite was the correct size for me, just not enough give in the arms. Sent 2 coats back! :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by PetiteStyle Nice coat, but Petite XS too big
This is a high quality coat in a pretty color, but I returned it because the arms were too long. I ordered a petite XS. I have had similar problems with other LL Bean outerwear. I had to return a beautiful pea coat and a fleece jacket (both petite XS) which fit nicely, except in the arm length. I was surprised, because I have ordered petite XS sweaters from LL Bean that fit just fine. I am 5'3 and about 112 lbs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jo70123 coat
The reason I am giving this coat a poor rating is because it is too tight at the top. I could barely get it on. The bottom part is ok though. I don't know where it was made, Most Petite clothes in a medium are plenty big but this one is something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsWils Love this Coat!
I have been looking for a good fitting trench coat and was very disappointed when LL Bean discontinued the style they had last year. But this updated fit is great. I really like that it is a little bit shorter in length. The only possible con is that it doesn't come in black.

Rated 4 out of 5 by smartshopperintexas Nice Trench
This trench is well made and very nice. I did however, need to send it back... only due to the fact that I changed my mind and wanted something in black. Otherwise great coat and I would recommend it.
LL Bean is the very best in customer service

Rated 2 out of 5 by ramtuf Shoulders Tight
I really like the clean lines of this style, as well as the color and length. I ordered an XL and it fit well through the torso, but the upper arms and shoulder area was very tight. I couldn't lift my arms without a very tight pull. This was even when the coat was unbuttoned. So, I decided to try the 1X. It was too big through the torso and was still too tight throughout the upper arms and shoulder area. My arms are actually on the thinner side so it's not that. Had to return it and will look elsewhere for a trench.
