I'm somewhat torn because it's amazing to need a smaller size...but also annoying to have to send back. However, this is my second H by Halston purchase and I'm again impressed with the quality and design for the price. The fabric is wonderfully soft but has structure. The high low design with yoke in the back adds style and elegance. This could be casual or semi dressy based upon your accessories. I am a 12/14, solid size large and pear shaped. The large was too big! I think I like it enough to exchange for a medium. I'm not sure. They did warn on the presentation but I've not been a medium in a very long time and couldn't beleive I'd really need it. Bottom line...great garment, size down!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Auk7 Soft, stylish, made for women
I purchased all three colors on a sale price. I did read the reviews, and as a result sized down from XL to L on two of them. I honestly believe the XL is truer to the design. These are meant to be large and comfy, yet still stylish but timeless. I have begun to love these new Halston designs, which seem to me designed to fit actual women with curves. I''m 5'6, bust 40DDD, generally an XL in Mizrahi and D&C, though occasionally can go to a L.
However, the two in size large also will work for me, so if you want something closer to the body, size down. If you're busty, true to size will be fine. Both work. I figured that even if these turned out to be as awful as some of the other reviewers have said, at the price, I'd be able to wear them around the house in cooler weather. In truth, I will be happy to wear these with anything in my wardrobe, They are lightweight, but will chase the chill in cooler weather.
The saffron appears on my screen to be more camel-colored, but there is definitely a hint of saffron color--a pleasant surprise. The grey is very nice, with a very, very slight hint of pink, and the blue a pleasant, muted medium - light blue.
I washed them today and hung them to dry, and had NO problems with the bottom edge curling up. I did straighten them before hanging, and was prepared to put two strong magnets on the hem to weigh it down keep it from rolling, but that wasn't necessary. I'm guessing the rolling happens in the dryer.
These three jackets were my fourth Halston purchases,not all at sale prices, most with reviews that said they were 'too big'. I'm now thinking that I should grab all I can before the hue and cry of the thin customers changes the aesthetic. I hope it doesn't. I have been pleased with the shape, fit, and quality of everything Halston I have purchased here. Please keep these woman-shaped designs coming at reasonable prices.

I purchased this in all 3 colors, so glad I did. I loved the casual style and elegance about this jacket, but I was concerned about sizing because of the reviews. I am normally 99% of the time a QVC size large, but many times I check the chest measurements to ensure it will fit. I watched Jill present this item and she said she could go either way but it was a generous fit and she went down a size. I actually did that and ordered a medium and it fits beautifully. And I am large chested and have larger upper arms but this is forgiving. I would still be ok if I had gotten the large though, but this is a generous soft fit.

This is a perfect jacket to dress up or down for everyday! I just received the teal today & COLOR is even prettier in person. Fits true to the
size chart. I purchased the Heather Saffron in May for my grandson's graduation & received many compliments.

Bulky and unflattering. But worse than that the bottom edge turned up after washing and could not be flattened. Had to return it.

Never written a bad review but so disappointed in the huge over sizing of this and the overall design/ fabric quality - even the stitching was crooked on the collar - really? This should be removed to save customer return inconvenience and fees...
Rated 2 out of 5 by ChMaAr Sizing?!
I sized down and it is still WAY big. Too much in shipping to return... For the pricing, I really hoped it would fit more true to QVC's sizing...
Rated 4 out of 5 by CourtneyB Size down one size - great layer to grab and go!
I ordered down a size (XS instead of S). I'm 6' and it fits well even in the arms. Really comfy. Lately I've been throwing it over my leggings when I'm leaving the gym or youa. The gray looks amazing with everything and somehow dresses up leggings to make a chic, casual-cool look.
Love it! Considering a second color.
