The following information is specific to hunt coats and does not necessarily apply to dressage coats.

While not all show coats are sized equally, there are some basic guidelines that can help you find a well-fitting, comfortable coat. Typically, the 3rd button down should be at the same level as your belly button and the coat tails should rest at the middle of your rear. Jacket sleeves should end at your wrist bone. Keep in mind that if you cannot find a coat that gives you this fit, it is better for sleeves and coat tail to be a bit too long, rather than too short. Make sure that the coat allows enough room for you to move comfortably in the show ring; sit in a saddle if one is available and simulate the position of your arms to assess proper sleeve length. Some manufacturers label using U.S. sizing, while others use U.K. sizing. A general guideline for sizing is that a U.S. size is 4 down from its U.K. equivalent (example: U.K. 12 = U.S. 8). For more detailed measurements from individual manufacturers, please refer to the sizing charts on individual product pages.
