Carolyn Gracies '' size large on top''

I took my screen down to normal size and she's no large '' here go's a prime example of why you can't by clothes over Tv unless you try them on. If shes only large on top what is she from the waist down. I personally think Carolyn has always said she's smaller than she really is.. Now if a woman her size bought that top and had to return it because of improper fit '' to small'' she would need to pay an additional 10.95 to return that top because she listened to a host give false information. This is a restocking fee.

Jacque said on Isaac's show that she is a size 8, there must be something wrong with my TV, everyone looks heavier than what they say. However, I know that depending on one's height and weight, and its distribution, everyone can look different and be the same size.

I did hear Jacque say that about her dress. Jill bower says she is an extra small and Leah says she is a large also.

Don't know about Carolyn but I recently saw Jacque while shopping and she is definitely a size 8. Curvy and busty but a size 8 nonetheless.

TV, especially the wide flat screens, make people look larger than they are. I have no reason to believe Carolyn is lying. In fact, she often appears that she should size up and is "squeezing" into a large.

On my TV, Carolyn does look bigger than a large. But Leah Williams for some reason looks huge on my TV - I am talking way bigger than a large. Maybe it is just the styles she wears. Nonetheless, I would never want to be on TV and look so big.

Well Leah is a very large woman. I think she must be a size 16-18 but because she is also tall, her body type and the clothing she wears, she does look really huge sometimes.

It's called VANITY SIZING! Hosts give their QVC size which is definitely smaller than B&M. I don't think all of QVC's hosts feel the need to lie about the size they're wearing...sheesh! Monday Jayne Brown said the maxi dress she was wearing was a size small, I believe her what's the big whoop? It's QVC, I don't need to know what her "real" size is because I would be ordering the dress from QVC so it gives me an idea of how this dress runs--big!!!

Sizing is very different on different bodies. Sevral years ago, I heard a designer describe sizing -- three people, who all wear a size 8, can be totally different in body shape! One can have a boyish figure and be tall, or one can be very curvy and be slightly short, or one can have a top/bottom difference and have a medium sized look. Very different bodies, but all wear the same size. I have always been curious as to why viewers care what size the hosts are or even say they are?? Can' imagine why anyone would really care!!!

Why don't you contact QVC and give them your opinion? Geesh, why start this thread more than once? {#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}

I certainly don't think Carolyn is a liar .

TV adds 10 lbs to your image. Also I watched QVC on High Definition and the hosts all looked HUGE! Then I watched it on regular tv and they looked normal. I am sure they wouldn't lie about what size they wear. OP should just check the sizing for the item she wants and not compare it to what the host says the host wears. All different body types can wear the same size.

Exactly. You can't tell what size someone wears from seeing them on TV...and why would someone be so very interested? Use the size chart. Unless you get a thrill out of the criticism of someone's appearance.
