Totally agree with you on their comparison prices.  If your shopping on QVC, you are not someone who shops high end stores.  


@lovesdishes 

 

Your right on the high end store angle, and it's regardless of what QVC, the hosts and vendors think.....Oh, I look around Nordstrom and Saks and their quality and selection is no different than the more affordable Department Stores, except for their prices of course, .....so I mosey on over to stores with comparable garments and more realistic price points for what Im getting...

 

I had to laugh a friend was looking for a dress for a special event ..... we went to Nordstroms and all they had were small sizes....she's a medium, and the Sales Associate told her she would have to purchase the dress she liked online to get her size...if you have to shop online for a normal size no wonder Nordstroms isnt doing well financially even before the pandemic....LOL....

You hit the nail on the head! I used to buy a lot from QVC and I don't mind that the prices have gone up a bit but I DO care that getting the right size is a ****** shoot.

Re: I just have to say this.

OR..... you're reordering an item you've bought for years, same size.  I wanted two pairs of D & C's side pocket pants with elastic waist.  I have them in my closet, I've been wearing them for years, and you guessed it, when my two pants came they were SO HUGE I couldn't believe it.I looked like a joke.... why on earth would I look at sizing specs when I own the pants and they are in my closet!!  Sent them back.  Unbelieveable waste of time and money.  

I've remembered this with (especially) shoes.  I only order Sketchers now.... oh and no food!  I'm very selective now..... Woman Frustrated

Re: I just have to say this.

I have to agree sizing is all over the place. The charts do not match the brands. I've sent back plenty & have not received a letter. If I do I'll be done.

@Nataliesgramma I agree that the sizing is all over the place. I stopped buying clothes from QVC for a while because it was so irritating to buy something and have it not fit, then have to pay to return it. I've bought some things and some have been good, some totally off on fit - even though I always use the "click here" measurements.

 

I'm looking at that skechers sneaker they have on today. It's pretty and I like it but I think I am going to pass for a couple of reasons -- 1. shoe sizing is even more erratic than clothes it seems to me, 2. I don't really NEED another pair of sneakers, 3. the price which is close to $60 when including S&H and taxes which goes back to #2, I don't need another pair of sneakers.


I am returning a pair of Skechers today, @GinaV24. The return mailing is not fair b/c of tattle tales by the host. She said they were lightweight, flexible, true to size. They were none of these things. I know: it's like hitting myself on the head and wondering why I have a headache. Smiley Happy

@phoenixaz 

 

You are so right.....Dillards has even permanently lowered prices on some of the favorite clothing items too....(my fav jeans for one).....I like the fact they offer a large range of price points, and have great sales too...unlike QVC's $2-$3 off the QVC regular price...LOL.

 

QVC needs to stop comparing themselves to Boutiques...how many QVC shoppers actually buy from Boutiques?!?!?!?!?  From what I read on the fashion forum category not many--most buy from Department Stores (Macys, Dillards, Kohls), or places like TJ Maxx, Marshalls.....  They need to do a market price comparisons where their prospective buyers actually shop instead of these "fantasy stories" where the host/vendor say to add a 1 in front of QVC's price, or they talk about a shopper going to a Boutique...QVC needs a reality check...and they need to know the who their volume customers are and what and where they buy....


I can't remember the last time I actually SAW a Boutique in business in our town.....

Same here, @Q4u . Kim Gravel is always talking about her clothes look like they came from a botique. I haven't seen a botique in ages and never cared for them anyway.

Maybe the Q should just establish a "No Returns" on everything! They sound desperate and should stop saying congratulations when a sale is made.

Re: I just have to say this.

I think this relates to your post, and find it no coincidence that it seems it's the same vendors/designers over and over selling pretty much the same items/style.  Not much diversity as it used to be, as in fresh faces, fresh styles, more quality pieces to choose from. Anybody, Cuddle Duds to name a few, you can buy an outfit for under $30.00, $40.00 but in my opinion, it's just cheap and Ive noticed a few "regular"designers are going in the same route. There's very few vendors that "perk" my interest anymore, one of them being GILI which is a bit more cutting edge, I used to enjoy Isaac but its rare. I have purchased a few swimsuits from Denim and Co a brand that I dont normally care for, the suits were stylish, great fit, and great quality.  Just my opinion but quality is not there, and its more about appealing to the masses in large "oh, joggers are in lets all do our rendition of cheap joggers"...to death.
