Runs VERY small

I have been eyeing the Belleville Parka for some time (like years) and finally broke down and ordered one. I have always liked the variety of colors. If you are eyeing this Parka, keep in mind it runs VERY small. I am a US size 12 and ordered the XXL (based on the measurements provided on the Arctic Bay website). Definitely made the right call in that XXL fits, but it's almost too snug when wearing a sweater. And today was the first day it was cold enough for me to wear it (with a thick sweater). If I could exchange it for a larger size, I would - but there is nothing larger than a XXL. If I could return it, I would - but I am past the 30-day return policy. All that being said - it DEFINITELY blocks the wind and is a very warm coat - so for that, it's 5-star worthy. If you are smaller than a US size 12, then this it the coat for you. I really, really, really wanted to LOVE this coat, but it's just a smidge too small and I can't exchange or return it - hence the 3-stars.
