SEA KELP PLAIN MAC
Nice coat, BUT
This is a really nice coat - however
-it is described as light-weight - it is actually thick cotton ??
- it is a good fit in the shoulders BUT it is really baggy around the back & in the waist - the funny belt is fitted too high up & can't be adjusted? Sz 14 too tight across shoulder!
- the fitted shape in the sides makes the coat balloon out over the hips.
Not a great shape for curvy types!
PS I am a 14, but find WS coats too narrow in the shoulders; my dream: a middle-ground between a 14 & a 16 ??

Fantastic, Brilliant and Beautiful
If there is one word to describe this coat, its absolutely 'FANTASTIC'. I loved it when I first came across it, and furthermore it was on sale. After some delay I managed to get one sent out to me yesterday. It is one of the most finest well made coats to own. I am so glad I have one now, and am so pleased with it. It is truly wonderful and well made. The material is thick cotton with beautiful lining. Large button with pockets to the front. They fit perfect, with a fitted look and will go with almost everything. This is the best fit coat with the most remarkable finishing and am surprised it was on SALE. Hope WhiteStuff continues this style of coat, in other colours and prints as it will always be in fashion and a best seller. A must have coat definitely. Cannot say enough, truly the best of coats. Love it and cannot wait to wear it this weekend with my dear husband to see Gary Barlow at the O2.Thanks Whitestuff for getting it to me in time. Both customer service and online where very helpful.

Beautiful coat but 'fit' not for me
I have wanted this coat since it first appeared online so when it came in the sale I instantly pressed 'proceed to purchase'. However, despite the coat being a great colour with lovely buttons, the fit [for me anyway] was not great. I have the caravan coat which is beautifully tailored but found the 'extra material' around the pockets on this mac made it a looser fit around the 'middle'. Sadly returned but happy at least that I had the chance to purchase so I am not left wondering what it 'would have been like to own one!'
