I saw this coat on a friend and determined it was one of the most flattering thigh length coats. The colors are really beautiful; although I purchased the black. The "trash bag" look isn't a good description; it is what you expect. There's nothing matte about the finish but it's not as shiny as some i've seen.

I'm 5'5" 135lbs. i'm a 36B with an athletic build. I usually order a small outer layer and small ski pant from Arc'teryx paired with size medium mid layers and base layers. I was going back and forth between a small and medium in this particular style for a while. I fit into a small but it was pretty tight across the shoulders and chest, even my ribcage. The medium seemed to be too wide, although if I wanted to layer underneath this coat I would need a medium, definitely. I ended up purchasing a small with the thought that I would not need to have even a light sweater on; I was wrong. The coat is very form fitting and very slimming for being a down coat. It's warm enough for my use which is commuting and "around town" but if I needed to be able to layer underneath, it would be too snug. The sleeves for the small were the right length. In retrospect I might have tried medium on again with a sweater... Either way I have worn the Nuri coat most days this winter. It's formed a bit to my figure as well, just perfectly.

Swimsuits are not easy; but this brand made all the difference. At the end of the day I wanted the best fit. I didn't want to feel like the swimsuit was pressing in on my skin, leaving indentations and marks or accentuating my "love handles". The way they make their swimsuits is something special. After many recommendations and reading a bit about the brand on their website it was a no-brainier. This swimsuit is REVERSIBLE, and fits like a DREAM. The coverage is exactly what I had expected. Cheeky, comfortable, and super flattering. I'll be back for more. These are the best bikini bottoms!
