I really wanted to like this blazer! I have other eddie bauer jackets and love them. My other eddie blazer was similar material and a petite 6......fits great. I bought this blazer and tried the 6 and like other reviews found the shoulders super tight. They were so tight that I felt like the seems would pop if I moved right...,but the rest of the jacket seemed fine. So I returned it for a size 8.....still same problem. I am 5'1 and around 135lbs. I do not have huge shoulders, so I think it is just a flaw in the design. The material was nice and the lines along the body are nice too, but I will have to take this one back again.
