@conlt, that always gives me a giggle. Maybe it is to show how much can be stuffed in it for the holiday season!

@ECBG for those who can not catch the sound of 'boing & snap ' of spandex ? Smiley Happy


@conltThey admit it's for the cookies with the elastic waists!

Re: My pet peeve about fashion presentations

I did not think about the people who cannot hear the sound of spandex stretching. Too funny, well I just put on my stretchy waist pants to head out for Christmas Eve dinner. I am glad to know they stretch out at least a foot. LOL.

Re: My pet peeve about fashion presentations

Maybe you should watch some video of woman with control slacks, leggings etc. or Denim and Company stretch. Honestly, I don't take things to seriously, but they would get more sales from me if I could actually see the garment and how it hangs..  Have a great holiday.

Re: My pet peeve about fashion presentations

The one with the hands busy pulling and grabbing is not a model,  it's Susan Graver.   Watch closely; her hands are never still.   I think that this is an aspect of her presentations that give the feeling of nervous,  frantic energy.   Drives me nuts.

I just watched the entire video of the TSV QF pants and NEVER at all - not once - did a model stretch them out. The rep did a demo with some fabric samples to compare them with denim - that was all. 

Perhaps you all should take your complaints about how they demo clothes on HSN to the HSN board.


@151949  I don't know about HSN as I don't watch their clothing shows but I think there's a wee bit of exaggeration in describing QVC's.   I don't see stretching as a problem at all.

The thing I wish the models would do a little more is turn around so we can see how things look from the back...after all, we are seen coming AND going!

Re: My pet peeve about fashion presentations

SG drives me nuts with her constant making comments while the host is talking.  I would like to hear what is being said about the garment not amazing etc.  and the gasping like it's the first time she has seen a color.

I have a pet peeve about the fashion demonstrations and it drives me crazy. Why oh why do the models now pull at their clothes to show the amount of stretch in them? I want to see how the top looks, how it drapes, not that I can pull the sides out 1 foot from my hips. The same goes with slacks. This drives me crazy. I want to see how the item looks on. Thanks for letting me share LOL. 


I know this has been said before but why can't they say what size they are wearing and how tall they are.  Some hosts do like Carolyn but why can't this be part of every presentation.  It's not just Q, Evine it depends on the host.  On HSN they rarely say what size anyone is wearing.

Re: My pet peeve about fashion presentations

My pet peeve the hosts and models wearing something a size or two too small.  

 

Your clothes are not supposed to pull under the arms, around the bust, around the shoulders .....

 

I guess they want to show viewer that "See ... the clothes don't fit us either!"   Smiley LOL

@sunshine 919 they are always in XS! LOL I think Carolyn is the only honest saying she's in size L.

 

But, sometimes online they show a model showing her height and size.
