I give up on coat shopping..

  1. Coat shopping has officially become impossible and I can't seem to find anything that works with my body type. I have an athletic build and wide hips that tends to rule out many long coats and a larger chest that rules out double-breasted coats. Any ideas?!?!:cursing:

    Both of the above should look fantastic! You want something that hits below the hip but above the knee.. this will slim your hips. Go for a darker colour for a more slimming effect, obviously. Stick with a single button placket. Try to find something that will define your natural waist (will also help slim you out) And for your bust pick a coat that shows a little neck and doesn't require having to be buttoned all the way up.

    Hope this helps! :smile:
