Does anyone what the sizing is like on these jackets? I have an uniqlo wool coat in a small which fits well but I'm not sure if the down coats come up a bit smaller?

I'm specifically looking at the hooded parka jacket like this

What's your UK size?

Generally a 10 in most places. Sometimes a 12 bottoms, sometimes an 8 on top.

I'm a 12-14 (narrow waist, big boobs) and have that jacket in size L, which fits me well, so I would think an M would be best - especially for winter when you're likely to wear thicker jumpers etc underneath.

Just hijacking to ask if the hooded ULD jackets are as shiny as they look?! I'd like one in black or navy but they look sooo shiny in the photos!

I'be ordered a Medium, thanks for the advice vitaminC.

Laquila I will update about the shine factor when it arrives.

The medium is a perfect fit, a small would be too narrow for my hips.

It has a matt sheen rather than a glossy shine.

Ooh thanks for updating, Funkin. What colour did you get?

I recently ordered a black one in L (I'm size 14 on top, 16 on hips) and it was too narrow on the hips. I sent it back and ordered an XL, which fits beautifully.

I have the one with a collar and no hood, and it's gorgeous! Not too shiny.
