Please help me find a WARM winter coat for a VERY petite woman.
I am 4'11" and 90 lbs. I usually wear a size 00, XS is too big and sometimes Petite XS is too big. My shoulders are very narrow, and my arms are pretty short.
I am looking for a seriously warm coat that will last me awhile. I will mostly be going for walks in the coat, sometimes just standing outside; nothing terribly physical. Temps where I live may be anywhere from -10 to teens.
What I've done in the past is wait until after christmas to buy a down coat from Abercrombie+Fitch on sale. Stores like A+F that cater to teenagers fit me great and the XS is small enough for me. However, the coats are poor quality and fall apart after a couple years, plus they aren't terribly warm.
Brands such as the North Face are generally too big as well, and any regular XS coat will presumably too big in the shoulders and the arms.
I thought I lucked out with this coat from Eddie Bauer
in petite XS, but when it arrived I was so disappointed to find that it was far too big in both the shoulders and the arms, even with a sweater underneath. So I ordered this coat
from LL Bean and same issue!
Does anyone have any suggestions? Ideally I'd like a waterproof down coat like the ones linked but at this point I really can't be picky. Normally I would just buy a kid's coat but I find the quality to be lacking. I need something quite warm. Any suggestions are greatly, greatly appreciated.
