Well, winter hasn't hit yet in Cleveland yet, but I wore it on a chilly 40 degree night and the coat was awesome. I am 5'2" and the girls coat fit great!! There was plenty of room in the XL in the chest and it hits at the thigh. I saved a lot of money getting the kids coat instead of the women's coat! It's so warm and cozy and I've got a lot of compliments already! I'll be honest, the coat is SUPER warm... and I was sweating in 40F.
Recommend the coat to girls and petite adults!! It's great quality!!
