Beautiful white faux fur coat
I bought this coat in white and in the 2X. It fits just a little bigger than true to size. I found the sleeves long but that was taken care of once the cuffs were rolled up. It's roomy enough to wear with a bulkier sweater but I don't wear thick, heavy sweaters anymore. It's a beautiful coat to wear for elegant evenings or just to dress up a pair of jeans. It's warm but not bulky and heavy. I've worn it on days that temps. ranged from 7-35 degrees F and were windy and it felt great and kept me warm. I love this coat because it's so soft and the shine on it makes it look real. The DB coats are the softest faux fur coats.This coat is worth the money because of its great look, it's feel, the weight of it and its wearability.
I feel like a princess.
I got the white one. On the plus side: It's a fantastic coat! I got so many compliments and I feel wonderful wearing it and wanted to hug myself every time I've worn it. The coat was so welcomed during our northeast very cold winter. Sizing was true to my size, appropriately a bit roomy for winter clothing. It's so warm, soft & silky and indeed looks luxurious but it's not too bulky. On the downside: The sleeves are meant maybe for a gorilla? Uncuffed there's a good 7-8 inches of length BEYOND the tip of my fingers. Completely cuffed as much as possible, the sleeves reach the start of my thumb. Oh my. Also the "swing" shape is hardly detectable, perhaps a very, very slight A-line if that. I would have been crazy for a true 'swing' fur coat, so much more unique. Yet I do love it regardless.
I thought it was really beautiful. However, I had to send it back because of size for replacement. However, I am still waiting for confirmation.
Wonderful Faux Fur But Sizing is Off
I purchased the last black faux fur in this style. My first faux fur coat. And I am quite impressed with how close to the real thing it looks. Really very nicely styled coat. I have recently also purchased another Dennis Basso coat in the puffer style with a plush velvet collar and cuffs. That coat fits like a dream in size 2x. However the sizing of this faux fur coat is way off. I ordered a 2x and it fits more like an XL. So I am sadly returning the coat. Makes me wonder if the coat sizing was simply mislabelled somewhere along the line? This one mistake doesn't detour me from ordering other Dennis Basso coats, though. Basso coats are wonderfully made with great styling and quality for a nice price.
Best Dennis Basso!
Contrary to other reviewers, I think this is the most realistic Dennis Basso fur coat. One reason is that the fur isn't patterned like other DB coats - patterns that may be fun but aren't realistic . The fur is simple, elegant, and beautiful. The coat does, however, run large and I have to return it. Unfortunately the next size smaller is no longer available. Please bring this coat back - and it would be WONDERFUL if you made it in the mid-thigh length (38-39 inch length) - that would be truly elegant. One last request - please make the sizing more consistent on your products so that customers know what to order.
Pretty but ...
I love Dennis Basso's creations. Have several, including three faux fur throws and teddy. This one, however, is not as high of quality, so it's going back. Last year I bought the textured reversible coat with the hood in brown, and it's beautiful and feels like real fur. While this is a beautiful design, it looks and feels fake, not just faux.
Not at all like a real fur
I ordered 3 Dennis Basso faux furs at the same time, and this was the most expensive once, and yet, it was also my least favorite. I ordered the black and it's not even remotely believable as a real fur. The coat has a plastic-like sheen and the nap of the fur feels fake. It's decently soft, but I expected a higher quality faux fur. The styling is cute and classic, especially the collar and rolled cuffs. However, the sizing runs very large. I'm 5'6" and a size 4 in tops and size 6 in bottoms at all major department stores, but I ordered the XXS in this coat and it was still a little roomy. In terms of sizing I would be satisfied with the XXS because I could wear a sweater underneath, but I couldn't get over the material.
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COAT EVER
I received this coat a few days ago in black and ladies, it took my breath away. You will never find another coat anywhere that looks as real as this one. Unfortunately, I will be sending it back and ordering a size smaller. If QVC still has your size, don't hesitate to order it. SO BEAUTIFUL.
Gorgeous in White
I ordered the ivory in small and it fit perfectly. I am 5'4" and weigh 131 pounds. It is gorgeous. So elegant. I have been looking everywhere for an ivory fur coat. I have ordered and ordered and sent them all back bc they looked cheap. This one at half the price I have paid elsewhere looks real. It even has the little inside pocket for gloves, and it is fully lined the way a real fur coat would be. It has gorgeous full cuffs and a beautiful button at the top which beautifully frames the face. I love this coat, and have seen others at twice the price that weren't half as beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a beautiful ivory faux fur coat that looks and feels like the real deal which can be worn to the most fancy evening event. I, personally, think the coat is too elegant for everyday wear, but that's just me. I am keeping mine for evening wear.
SIGNATURE DENNIS BASSO
After several tries, I’ve finally found the Basso quality of a few years back. Everything about this is perfect. Fingertip length, upgraded lining, beautiful cuff, feminine collar and a gentle swing. The black is beautiful. Liked it so much came back for winter white.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
I ordered this coat to wear to the Macy's Parade in NYC. I am always cold but I was able to sit outside and enjoy the parade for 4 hours and it kept me toasty warm. I got several compliments on it including one from the salesman at the David Yurman counter at Bloomingdale's as i was going by - and I know he sees lots of the real thing! It's gorgeous....DO NOT HESITATE!
