Rated 5 out of 5áby EuroTraveler70 Beautiful Coat
I just received this coat and tried it on with a long sleeve t- shirt since many reviews suggested that it fit poorly. NOT SO!!
This M coat fits me, 5' 6" 136 lbs. perfectly. It was loose and comfortable. I then put on a long sleeved, wool, large sweater. Still a good fit. I must report, however, that the size stated is for a woman's frame size and does not make any accommodation for any extra flesh that one might carry in the neck, shoulder, upper arm or in the back. Going up a size, or even two to accommodate a fuller build, I'm afraid, would only distort the look and feel of the coat because it would then no longer be appropriate to the woman's frame.
It is made beautifully, the fabric is lovely and very dressy. The arm length is long, and that has always been a personal problem for me when buying a coat. I am happy I made this purchase, now let's hope it sheds water.

Rated 2 out of 5áby bjbn Ugh. Did not like this coat.
Does not fit right in shoulders/upper arms. Stiff fabric that does not drape well. The blue stripes inside look strange and the buttons seem too big for the coat. Very uncomfortable to wear. Sending this back.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Slendercustomer Stylish coat but hard to fit
This trench coat is very stylish and good quality. It unfortunately did not fit me. I am slender and somewhat small (5'4" 105 lbs.). I tried first the misses XS - it hung off my shoulders, was too big through the bust, the sleeves and bottom length were too long, and it felt tight across my upper back. I then tried the petite S - it was too big through my body, the sleeves were too long, and the upper back still felt too tight when I moved my arms. It is possible that the petite XS would have worked, but by this time I gave up. I am small through my upper body, and don't understand why the coat would feel tight in the back. If you are more average size than me the coat might fit you.

Rated 5 out of 5áby lrose Comfortable, well taylored
I have not had a chance to wear this coat since the weather here is 105 heat index, however the fit is comfortable, well designed, and it hangs well on the body. Great coat to put on over anything when the weather begins to change in the fall.

Rated 5 out of 5áby love02138 Great Trench, Finally
This is a gorgeous red with contrasting black buttons. It is true to size and a good length. I am 5'3" and l50 lbs and the large is a good fit. The coat is not overly heavy, has a good sized fashionable collar and I like the simplicity of the single row of buttons. I will say that the sleeves are a tad long. The belt is long enough to tie off, even without buttoning. All and all, a good price and I am completely pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Dalhia Love my trench coat
I love my new trench coat. It is stylish and yet comfortable. I ordered the red coat in size medium. Some of the other reviews said that this coat runs large. I'm glad I did not order the small. I usually wear an 8 or 10 and this coat fits as a medium should. The sleeves are a regular sleeve (not raglan like someone else said in their review) and fit a little snug and a little long. Other than that the coat fits great and the color is beautiful. It is just the right length and I can still wear a sweater under it for cooler days in spring or autumn. I placed my order on-line on a Sunday evening with regular shipping and I received it by Tuesday. All in all I am very happy with my purchase from L.L. Bean.

Rated 1 out of 5áby gardenjean Not up to L L Bean standards
I should have listened to other reviewers comments that this coat is cut tight through the upper arms and across the back of the coat. I found it very restricting and could never pick out groceries on a shelf nor reach the steering wheel of my auto.
I loved the style and navy color and was looking forward to taking this coat on a summer trip. Not now!
L.L.Bean, , you need to try this coat on various women and if they say it is cut wrong, then take it out of your inventory.
I am 5'4", 150# and ordered the Petite Large. The sleeves were still long on me.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Susieq105 Sleeves too tight
I purchased this raincoat despite my reservations after reading quite a few reviews. It seems that the sleeves are very tight and the rest of the body fits well. I was hoping that I would be an exception, but that was not the case. It is a nicely made coat, but when I tried it on the sleeves pulled when I moved my arms forward. Sadly, I returned it. I would not recommend to a friend for that reason.
