Carole Hochman Microfleece Cowl Neck Pullover Lounger
Before purchasing this lounger I read the reviews and I'm glad I did. I ordered a size larger than I normally would due to the reviews. This lounger is so comfortable and soft and washes nicely.
Soft & Comfortable
I love this lounger. It is soft and comfortable and I find myself not wanting to get dressed. My daughter liked it so much she wanted one for Christmas morning so that's what she'll get! I purchased the black and would have loved to get the burgundy one but it was sold out.
This is my third order for this lounger, each one a different color. It's what I wear every night in the fall and winter. I don't want to be without it. I've washed it numerous times, and it still looks like new. It's luxuriously soft, even after so many washes. I ordered the same size as I do for Denim and Company and Susan Graver. As far as the length goes, if Carole Hochman made this longer, the petite women wouldn't be able to wear it without hemming. At 5' 2 1/2", the sleeves are a little long, but I don't mind. In my opinion, this length is a nice compromise so that people of many different heights can wear it.
I bought 2 and came back for a third. It's difficult to tell by the on line photos, but the red and black loungers are the same pattern of fabric. I found these fit true to size. I wear a medium on top and large on the bottom. I ordered a Medium and they all fit fine. At 5' 9" they only come to mid calf, not as long as shown. The lounger is super soft and holds its shape. No bagging or stretching out. I've washed them all 3 times and they've held up perfectly.
Love, love, love this !
So glad that I ordered this. It is so comfortable, cozy and warm. I could almost live in this lounger. I am wearing it right now!
Received the purple plaid and to my surprise it had black neck and cuffs. Specifically ordered the purple as it is a good color to frame my face. This combination was not shown in any video. Reluctant to reorder for fear I would receive same item. Also sizing is skimpy and thinner material than I had expected. Sent back.
Sizing Not Consistent, Purple Not as Pictured
I ordered this lounger in the black and the purple in size L. Based on reviews, I ordered up a size. Both garments run small in the bust, could be 2-3 inches longer, and the sizing is inconsistent....the purple is a tad larger than the black even though they are both labeled as L. The purple I received has a black cowl neck and cuffs. I expected it to be as depicted in the photos and in the on air presentation. That is, it should have a purple cowl neck and cuffs, not black! At $48 including s&h and tax, I do not find this item to be a good value. The purple will definitely be going back. Am annoyed with lack of quality control, so black will likely be returned as well. Nice design, poorly executed.
I purchased one in purple and I plan to get another one. Just perfect!
Cozy lounger for cold evenings
Like another reviewer, I would have appreciated 3 more inches in length. I am about 5 ft 6 inches tall, 190 pounds and this hits me about mid calf. I agree the fabric is not heavy but I think any heavier and it would be bulky. It is plenty warm and I really have been wearing it almost every evening. I keep my house chilly and this lounger is perfect for covering up and staying warm on the couch. I am considering another one. I got the burgandy one and wish there was a dark blue. I usually wear a L in QVC sizing but decided on a 1X in this lounger and am glad I purchased that size. I think this lounger is a great value and perfect especially for those of us who don't live in the frozen north (I live in NC).
Beautiful but Thin
I purchased 3 of these, 2 in the purple & one in the wine color. The fabric was very thin & was surprised by this being a Carole Hochman item. These were to be Christmas gifts, but all 3 were returned today. The Purple is very pretty, the wine color was not so pretty. The color popped on tv, but not in person.
1X versus Large
Just got my black robe in 1X about five minutes ago and have it on. I just want to comment that I was confused as to if I should get the Large or the 1X since I normally buy from QVC in XL and there is no XL. I wear a size 18 and I am relieved that I got the 1X because it just fits, any smaller and I would not like it. So for all you who want to know on this particular size, do go up not down. I think I will really enjoy wearing this around the house because it is cozy, cute, not too warm but warm enough. I am glad I bought it and just in time for cooler weather.
This could be a really great lounger, but it runs small and is too short! I expected this to be ankle length. Instead, it is 3 inches above the ankle so it is not as warm and cozy as I'd like. It also runs small and would be much nicer if it was roomier. Unless my garment is the exception, I'd recommend going up a size.
