Rated 5 out of 5 by RockyMtWoman Great vest
As suggested by other reviews, I bought both my regular size and also 1 size up to compare the fit. My regular size (1X)--fit was OK but a little snug when buttoned, especially in stomach area. Decided to return it and keep the 2X, which fits great and comfortably. I'm not sure what other reviewers meant by tight armholes--mine fit fine, not tight at all, even over a not thin tee. But I agree that the chain hanger at the neck is a waste of Dennis' manufacturing $$--great for a heavy coat, but I'll be snipping this one off. Would love to see more colors like black, purple, hot pink.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JulesD Super Cute Vest by DB!!
I've only purchased two things from Dennis which were his TSV suede MOTO jackets last fall (2014) which I absolutely LOVED, and then this vest at a lunchtime special last week. I got the red color which I would describe as a bright cherry red color. I went with the same size as I bought in the jackets (medium) as it fits like it was designed for me...I ABSOLUTELY LOVED this vest. Super cute, very fitted, love the collared neckline (had tried a similar vest by LC that had a mandarin collar and this neckline was way better. The buttons were a little tight but I figured they will loosen up with time and use. I didn't realize that they had the inside pockets until I came back this evening to check for other vests left in my size and looked at the reviews. I wast tickled with the outside seam pockets above the waistband. I am a "pocket" kind of girl, I need them for my car keys, cell phone, tissue or whatever. This is a "must have" for me and will get a ton of use year round - in the summer I will layer over short sleeved t-shirt or blouse, and in the fall and winter it will layer over long sleeved t-shirts or L/S blouses. My favorite sports team has red as their primary color for team clothing, so this will be perfect!! Now I just need to see about getting another vest in a different color before they are all gone...check the sizing guide prior to buying - I think this was true to size - and spot on with the chart. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DrCharlotte inside slip pockets
One of my favorite things about Dennis Basso pieces is the inside pockets he gives us.
I love my pretty handbags, but want the option, and frankly the respect, of clothing that relieves women of having to carry a handbag.
I got my regular size small. My chest is 34" but my shoulders are wide.
The berry is a bright fushia which looks great with my Isaac mixed print scarf.
Thanks, Mr B!

I ordered large, but sent back for a med....lg just a little bigger than I like vest to fit, color is great...will get all colors! I just don't like to return cost is not good. I only have one complaint shopping the Q that is I wish that when I order more than one item they would send them all together...and only charge one fee when sending more than one back. That would be great , because I shop alot and am very happy with what a receive. Love love QVC. It's is rare for me shop outside the home, thanks to my precious mother who told me to just try it, and I did. Thanks Mom(an angel in Heaven now)and Q. Sincerely Susan P.S. These vest are great, top quality Thanks to Dennis too, Love him and Shawnie Sue bunches!!!!!! all the Q guys and dolls are great!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lassie Too hard to button
I purchased this to wear as a sleeveless top for the summer. I liked the details of the vest and the berry color was great. But, the buttons on this vest are too big for the button holes. Also, it was hard to iron, and I do not mind ironing. Just too much of a hassle for me to keep.
I did order a larger size and my normal size because the size chart showed the item ran small. My normal size was perfect, even across the bust. The vest was made well and would have worked had it not been for the size of the buttons.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LV2XLR8 Love the style
I have this vest in all four colors. I ordered up one size and they fit perfectly. I am confused by the comments complaining about small pockets. There is an inside pocket on both sides that would hold very large phones. In addition, the pockets are straight up and down so there is no chance for the contents of the pockets to spill out. The colors are beautiful. They had a significant number of wrinkles when I unpacked them. I lightly sprayed them with water, placed them back in the plastic bag, and put them in the frig. The next day I ironed them without extra steam. All the wrinkles easily disappeared.
Rated 3 out of 5 by lovestodance Pockets Deceivingly Small
I gave it 3 stars because it is an okay vest. I need pockets that can hold an average size smart phone. I have so many dresses, skirts and pants that do not have pockets for cell phone. Can't walk around all day at work without my phone anymore. The company buys me the phone, but they do not buy me a new wardrobe that will accommodate the phone. This one looked like a good piece. This one fits, but just barely.Fine as long as one doesn't move around. I bought one of these vests, and then if it worked, I was planning to buy 2 other colors. No way. These pockets are good for tissue or a lipstick. It's just not a secure way to carry a phone. Another inch deep would have been just the ticket. In my women's executive group this month we starting chatting about the pocket problem. I am definitely not alone in those who use POCKETS as the search criterion for women's clothing. Now if only they would give pocket dimensions or some indication of cell phone security, Say "holds an average size smart phone" or " pocket appropriate for tissues or lipstick, but best not to use for cell phone."
Please help us. We can be good customers.

I ordered three of these vests. After reading the other reviews, I did order up a size, and I do not know what other reviewers mean went they wrote how small this was for their sizes. It is plenty large enough for me and I believe if I had ordered my regular size, it would have fit very nicely. I really like all three vests.
