Anyone seen a coat like this elsewhere? I'm not keen on these colour choices (good for apples)

My very non-apple shaped friend made me try on her coat recently and it looked really good. Weirdly it was a size 8 and I am not! I'm a 12-14 with 32J bust, but somehow it kinda fit me. I think a size bigger would be slightly better though.

She's a balanced size 10, and it also looks great on her.

Anyway I love the coat but am not sure about any of these colours. So just wondering if anyone knows what this coat style is called and if it's currently being sold anywhere else?

I think it is called a cocoon coat.

I'm not taking the piss with that reply, the reply before mine wasn't showing when I posted!

Lovely coat, nice range of colours too.

At least you both agreed.

Thanks. Off I go to google

I really like that. Does anyone know about the sizing? What would a 10 be?

I reckon sizes are big, I could get my friend's size 8 on, though it was a little snug on the arms, and I'm a 12-14 with huge norks!
Friend is well proportioned size 10 I'd guess, and it drapes beautifully on her with lots of space inside but without looking baggy
