Sorry, yet another north face size question... Which one would you keep?

I've ordered the North face brooklyn coat in a medium (12) and large (14).

Im usually a size 12/14 so thought id see which 1 fits best. The 14 fits and I have room to move my arms freely, looks about 1-2 inches big all over so plenty of space to move. any other time id have kept this instantly.

But Im in the middle of loosing weight, ive gone from size 16 back to 12-14 with at least 1 1/2 stone to loose. The coat is primariy for next winter bought in the sale now.

Tried the 12 on and its tight, I can zip it up just about but it looks tight for now. Can also fasten the belt on both so not exactly so tight I cant get it done but boobs certainly looks a bit squashed.

What would you do, keep the one that fits now or save the one thats a bit too tight and keep on loosing weight, do they bag out a bit when you wear them anyway? Its a lot of money to waste if I keep the tight one and it still doesnt fit next winter?

I think I'd prefer a coat to bigger anyways

Keep the bigger one.

Bigger so it allows for a jumper or layers

Id have bought the smaller to give me an incentive to lose smile
