Anyone got a Didriksons children's coat for themselves....?
Quite a few women buy girls sizes (I guess a form of self flattery), though they admit it is quite tight on hips and the arms are short. So, I'd rather buy (and have bought) womens sizes for myself. It's not only the height that matters, it's the shape of body and length of arms etc. HTH
I'm 5 foot and half an inch and a size 8, its not self flattery, its a fact and I buy kid's clothes if they fit me, why not? Cant help with the didrikson coat, I don't have one but off to check them out now!
Firstly, I apologize, did not mean to offend anyone. Didriksons womens clothes start at about 32, that would be a size 6 (not too sure on UK sizes) ? So smaller sizes are also available. I have compared girls and boys sizes on adults, might just fit but can't be too comfortable, nor could it be as warm as intended due to lack of fit. It is just my opinion, and again, I apologize if it offended anyone.
Excellent idea - I regularly find sleeves too long as I am a bit small. Sadly, the biggest size looks as though it will be too neat on the hips for me - annoying as the boys rain jackets are bigger on the chest & waist than the girls but the same size on the hips. I'm confused that buying childrens' clothes is self flattery. I think I've still got a hangup from being told to try the childrens' department when I was aged 17 - humiliating & maybe the reason why I mainly buy clothes online now - I can pretend to be buying for a child.
