    Which one of these coats is best?...Or have you seen anything better?

    I am a size 12, I think I am an hour glass, 5'4...pale skin and long brown hair if that helps.

    Thanks!

    The purple one is my favourite. It's a lovely colour and it should suit you really well if you're an hourglass, much more so than the other ones. I'm a similar figure to you, size 12 but 5"8, and I have a couple of coats that tie at the waist and they seem to suit me the most.

    The navy thing isn't attractive, imo. The other 3 are good.

    Please steer clear of the navy one! The grey one is best imo but the purple one is nice depending on age. If you're over 22 ish you'd look good, if not it would look too office like, but thats just my opinion. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VICTORIAN-GOTH...item336331c1b8 something like this would suit your shape i think.

    I don't like the ruffly thing on the purple one tbh and I don't like the navy one either. I'd go with the tan or grey, probably the grey.

    Taking your height and dress size into consideration, I would stay steer clear of the purple coat if you are gifted in the chest area (because the ruffles will just make you look huge). Definitely try it on in the shop before you buy it.

    No idea what's going on with the navy coat..I like the grey military style one the best.

    The purple one is a lovely colour but not sure about the ruffle.

    I liked the beige one, timeless colour but not sure if it is warm enough this time of the year. I am always looking for good quality, well cut coats that I can wear for many years so I would suggest that you buy something you will be able to use next year as well and not be bored of it. The purple one was alright as well but I am not sure about the actual colour or the ruffles.
