Does this coat/cardigan thingy look as if it's too small?

It's a coatigan I think!

Present from dh and he bought XS but I'd normally buy S.

It only has one fastening at the top. I'm just worried that it doesn't meet down the front unless I pull it together.

Should it look looser?

Thanks for opinions

I think it looks fine.
Does it feel small across the chest?
Would you prefer it to be snugglier?

No it's doesn't feel tight on chest or arms but I wondered if it should look more 'oversized' confused

It's the first item of clothing that dh has ever bought me that I've liked! I want to wear it lots!

I think it looks like a perfect fit. I really like it.

Ooh I like that! (And looks v good with the outfit you've got on!) where is it from?!

Oh and it looks fine size wise, although will you want to wear it with thicker tops underneath when Autumn rocks up? If so, try again with a jumper and see if it feels ok.

Yes good job to dh!

It's from M&S and was £59.

Good advice about jumper, I'll do that dinosaur

I like it a lot.

It looks perfect.

Next size up might be too roomy and spoil the look.

Oh, I tried that on in M&S yesterday. I didn't buy it because I'm not keen on 3/4 sleeves on coats - too draughty! But I think that's how it's meant to sit - was the same on me. I'd have had it with longer sleeves.

I think it looks like it shrunk in the washing and I would want to try the next size up myself to make sure - could you maybe go and do that?
