I need to get a new winter coat. My old one, that I've had for 11 years, now has a broken zipper. It was a Columbia size small, but it was a little snug and a tad short. I bought it back in college when having short shirts and coats was in style, but now that I'm older I want something that covers my hips. And I'd like something witha little more room, without being too baggy and unfeminine. I've never bought an LL Bean coat before, but if I were to buy another Columbia coat, I think I'd try medium. Does anyone know if LL Bean runs big/small/ just about right?
