Rated 4 out of 5 by Hollylove Pretty Coat
The Lady Day has always been a great coat for a petite frame, because of its clean lines and fitted look. I just received the smoky coral and what a lovely color! I have two complaints: 1) the coat is too long so I'll need to have it shortened, which is costly and 2) the coat runs a little too snug. I am generally a Petite 00, but in the Lady Day Coat (and any J. Crew Petite blazer) I have to go up one size - and could still use a little more room across the chest/back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CJ198 Almost perfect
I so wanted to love this coat. It's well made and I love the fabric, but it flairs out more than it appears to in the photo, and as another reviewed mentioned, looks strange when you wear it unbuttoned. Plus I couldn't fit anything other than a thin sweater underneath, and when I'm spending that much on a coat, I want it to be more versatile. This is the third "online only" coat I'm sending back to J Crew because their sizing is so different between items. It's getting expensive and I'll probably have to shop elsewhere soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nika Too fit and flare and not for the truly petite
I ordered the bittersweet chocolate color in petite size 4. I'm 5'2" and 110 lbs and I carry most of my weight in my lower body. When I put the coat on (unbuttoned) it flared out way too much and made me look like Cinderella's evil sisters' large-bottom dresses... However, the coat does look very elegant when it is fully buttoned up (like a Kate Middleton coat-dress look). But wearing it closed-button is not always practical.
Also, I would say that the coat is well-made. The material is beautiful, thin and warm. It's just too bad it didn't fit me very well. I'm sure this coat will make someone else quite happy; just not for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tess Way too long
I purchased the one in misty lilac. It is so elegant and classic, and the material is perfect. The only thing I would complain about is the length. This is way too long. I checked out all the pictures of this coat on google images and they appear to fit with anything, jeans, dress, etc. But with this length, I can only wear it with dress/skirt.
Also, the coat runs small. It's a bit tight for me (with my regular size) even when I was only wearing T-shirt. I would recommend that you order one size up, if you are wearing sweater or something thicker than a T-shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lana Warm, comfortable, perfect fit
I absolutely love this coat! I normally wear a size 4 and the 4 petite fits perfectly. The Thinsulate material makes it warm without being bulky and the turquoise color is absolutely beautiful. I would certainly recommend this coat for the warmth, quality, fit and style.
