Coat size help (numerical)

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I need help with numerical coat size. 


Height: 5’6”

Weight: 145lbs

Chest: 34”

Waist: 31”

Hips: 40”

I tend to stuff my pockets with a bunch of crap and I never buttoned my coat in school so it wasn’t too big of a problem.

I had a size XS in school and it fit perfectly, but I need a numerical size for work and my numbers fall across multiple different sizes. I don’t want it baggy and discheveled looking, but I also don’t want it to be skin-tight.

I’m not on here often so if there’s a thread that is more active and will garner more traction, let me know! A response is needed from me soon.

Thank you in advance!

Go with a 12 or 14 based on comfort and not binding.

Or, I wouldn't wear a white coat at all.

I haven't in over 25 yrs. 

I find them hot, restricting and cumbersome. I also look like a snow beast in one.

They get dirty easily and dirty looks germy to me. 

We wear business casual and you won't find me in a dress because I do ortho exams in awkward positions. Of my 20 VA partners, only one wears a white coat.

Just my two cents
