Women's Plus Size Pattern Wool Swing Coat
style plus warmth
So glad to find a coat that is warm and also has style. The sleeve length is about two inches too long for me and will need to be altered.. The pleat in back allows freedom to move while maintaining fit through the shoulders and chest. As others have said, the fabric is a bit itchy but the herringbone pattern adds a touch of sophistication. This is a coat I can wear everyday; suitable for any occasion.

Nice light fabric, nice fit, sleeves long.
The fabric is light and fits well over dresses, suits, pants, etc. The sleeves were extremely too long. Don't ususally have to alter sleeves, but had to alter these. Thanks to the sale price I could afford the alterations.

Quality, Flattering Coat!
I bought this coat in 18W. I am usually a size 17 or 18 so this coat fit well. It was a little bit loose but it still had a great shape and that left room to wear bulkier clothes underneath. I am 5"3 and the coat hit just above my knees. A little bit long but I prefer a longer coat.
- The coat has definition and shape. Although it is an A-Line coat it isn't a shapeless bag.
- Flattering cut for an apple shaped figure
- HIGH quality stitching, material, lining, buttons, piping and craftsmanship. This coat is made to last.
- Decently warm.
- Adorable collar!
- COMFORTABLE! I can move around in it and it is not stiff.
- Hidden breast pocket and chain hanging hook
- A little bit too big. I ordered true-to-size and the coat had room to wear bulky sweaters underneath.
- Tight collar. A little bit scratchy.
- Long arms (Will have taken in).
Super happy with the quality! Overall great coat!

Sleeves are tight. Poorly made
I bought this jacket and a solid color swing jacket as well. I returned them both. The arms weere too tight. The stitching on the tweed jacket wasn't straight. The solid looked OK in black because the stitching did not show. Went to Sears to try other sizes, but nothing worked. Sales people were great. Too bad the product quality didn't match the personnel.

The cut was flattering; the fit was true to size with room for typical winter clothes. I down rated it because of the fabric. It was stiff and felt very synthetic, not wooly at all. There was no drape or movement. I returned it because I realized though it fit an empty niche in my wardrobe, I would never be happy to wear it or feel well-dressed in it.

I love this coat
I bought a size 20. The fit is perfect. (My weight is, ahem, centered around my hips.) The construction of the coat is very good. The fabric is very good. It's warm! It is very comfortable to wear. I am completely satisfied with this purchase. I had bought the same coat last season, in green, and loved it so much I bought the tweed this year.

Save your money.
Unless you are a stick figure, this "Plus Size" fits no one who has a butt! Not to mention that I have never seen a wool fabric wrinkle so badly. I have now tried 4 different Lands End swing coats and every one has been worse than the last. My days of shopping at Lands End for any type of clothing are over.

I love this coat! It is true to size and very well made. I love the hidden pocket inside the coat! Great for hiding a key or wallet when shopping. This is a very comfortable coat and I would buy it again!

The upper arms are cut extremely small for a large size. Large women don't have small anything!
I'm a petite 3X with large upper arms. The swing coat just doesn't hang well on me. I just received it and I am regrettably returning it. the quality is top notch as are all your products. I'm disappointed. But I'll keep trying on jackets and coats until I find one that works for me.

I just loved the coat when I saw it online, but when it arrived I didn't like the way it fit me. My arms are large and I ordered the 20W so I would have plenty of arm room with a sweater. The shoulders made me look larger and the overall coat was too big. I wouldn't have had room for a bulky sweater at all, so I returned it. I considered going a size smaller in one of the more colorful swing coats, but they were the same shoulder construction. Probably a great coat for someone with smaller arms than mine.
