My girlfriend used to say a lot of people have magic mirrors. They look at themselves and think they look good and in reality they don't.
There are two sides to this, however. I understand what is being said as far as many of these fashions looking good on everyone. Certainly a vendor isn't going to sell on the Q and say this top is really for slim ladies as an example. Therefore all styles are offered for all sizes and those of us who wear plus are grateful.
I like many of the styles and designs but I also know what will and won't look good on me. Therefore it is my decision whether or not to buy, the host or vendor do not influence me in the least. With that being said if a woman feels comfortable and happy in something someone else thinks does nothing for her, I say go for it. As long as it is somewhat tasteful and not showing anything which shouldn't be shown.
It's all about money and the designers will make clothes as they see fit and the buyers will buy what they like. The Q is a shopping channel which means hosts and vendors are pushing their products any way they can. It is good to have all sizes models because it does help to see how an outfit will look.
I am in the middle of this because all women should be able to wear what they want as look as they feel good, it is appropriate and they are comfortable. For too long the fashion industry catered to the very slim and now every shape has variety. You are the best judge of your body and what looks good, happy shopping!!!!!
Feel better, Spurt!!!!
I totally understand what your saying ...But what's sad is some of these Q designers and hosts DO come out right and say something will look good on all shapes and sizes---dont be afraid of this if your curvier or shorter, or taller...This camuflouges you, this makes you slimer, appear taller etc...Ive learned not to trust them...But sadly some women don't have a feel for fashion or style so they do trust these experts....
I'm a medium petite...and Gary said this one tunic sweater would be just fine, no need for a petite size...so I made a mistake and bought it and it was mid calf--- way too long, and I paid $11 to return it ....
Amy's another one, She says, remember, I'm petite, but you have to check the shoes she's wearing because she wears high high heels, so the length wouldnt be right with flats....And the specific garment measurements online aren't always accurate or are missing..
I've learned If I see only XXS models out there I get the hint that's probably the only size that garment looks good on....And frankly I dont buy a heck of a lot of clothes from QVC anymore, got tired of returning stuff....
Sad to read reviews that say they gave the clothes to Goodwill because it didnt look right on them and its too difficult to get to USPS to return....
And I still think the fashion industry caters to the XXS

I think what @SPURT is saying is that the sellers/vendors/hosts/QVC itself are all supposed to be the "experts" and, while yes they are trying to sell, sell, sell, they might take a small step back to be, dare I say it, truthful.
Maybe that is too much to hope for.
We all know that they are there to sell.
What we maybe don't acknowledge is that a lot of buyers don't have good sense or good taste. And, in spite of their "maybe" expert status, a lot of the sellers don't either.
I guess I got a bit off topic from Spurt's post.
You are right on the money and said it better than I did...

Gee @SPURT , you do tend to get philosophical when you're feeling miserable. You're right on target with your remarks. My favorite is Gary Goben telling us horizontal stripes are camouflaging and will make us look thinner. I think he thinks if he tells that story enough times, he and we will believe it.
I hope you get to feeling better and you don't have to go to work tomorrow feeling miserable.
I think it's the cold medicine making me feel philosophical
Yep Gary talks the good talk regarding the so called camouflaging tricks .....
Thanks for the get well wishes....

My motto is just because I can doesn't mean I should.
I love straight leg jeans and jeggings but they look horrible on me so I dont wear them. Im also very self conscience about my arms and I dont do sleeveless.
I like my clothes fitted but not tight. I think who ever dresses the models needs to keep that in mind. Fitted but not tight. It would look better and give the viewer a better idea of how the garmet looks.
