Rated 1 out of 5 by Patti Jeane LUNCHTIME MISTAKE
I have never ordered anything as a lunchtime special (clothing) that had a normal fit, correct sizing, good coloring , etc. But I keep hoping that this time it will work out.....
Not with this sweater. For me the sweater had a boxy, short fit that was unattractive.
Short, and square, and faded. In addition to a poor fit it appeared to have been worn and washed before. The black was very faded. The color was not described as "off black" but "black", and I had on black pants that made this look very dingy. And it had to have been washed before and shrunk, because the arms were extremely short, almost 3/4, and that was not in the description either.
I have never purchased Joan Rivers brand before, and if this is a true example of the quality, I can't imagine how this line could have a large following on QVC. I am assuming this was a return, and an attempt to resell? It is a pain to take back to the Post Office so I really hope I am not charged for return shipping. It would be a very poor reflection on the Brand. I would think the Joan Rivers Collection would not want them shipping out used items. So I am disappointed.
Before I had received this item, I ordered another item as a Lunchtime Special. Again it is another brand on QVC which associated with quality. I sure hope it is not a repeat of the same lack of quality control. I would much rather write a positive review. This is depressing!
Rated 1 out of 5 by TomkatNJ Worn, Used And Washed
I did not purchase this AS IS - yet I received this item used and worn. Looks as though it's been washed at least a dozen times. I immediately put it back in the bag and will mark it defective, as I expect to have my shipping costs refunded. Very annoyed that I have to make a trip to the post office.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Shellygirl1 Fitted neck and needs ironing.
I have 4 of these in different colors ordered at different times, so I obviously like them. I like the soft fitted neck. I delicate wash in cold water and flat dry. I usually touch up with a cool iron. I wear them under denim shirts and like how they look on my neck. You can wear the neck in three different ways so it is a versatile piece.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ddemer Very Nice
I love this turtleneck, at first the neck was a bit tight but because it is mostly cotton it stretched out just enough to be perfect. It really is very stylish in black.
Rated 5 out of 5 by evewithouteden Perfect!
For me, this is the PERFECT turtle neck sweater! I got it in the grey, size XS. I usually take a Small in Joan's jackets, so got the XS as I like my sweaters to really FIT! Well, the fit is sleek perfection. Some people complained about the opening in the neck being too small, but I love it as it is because I wanted a sweater that really fit around the neck and wasn't the least bit baggy. I am only sorry you've now sold out of the red, because were it still available, I was going to NAB it! Please bring it back! In fact, I could use this in a lot more colours. A deep forest green and a true chocolate would be most welcome!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by smkingun Compared to mock neck, it's just ok
I have 3 of the Joan Rivers mock neck turtleneck fine gauge sweaters and those are nicer than these. I got these in 4 colors envisioning they would be of a similar weight to the mock neck. They are thinner and just not as nice even though they are a cashmere blend. If you want something with a bit more substance, soft feel, and quality, you might want to hold off on these as they are average at best. I will keep only because I really need something like this and will use scarves whenever I wear them. That should cover a good portion of the sweater. For those interested in how tight the turtleneck is, I would consider it to be very fitted. I was so excited for these too. :(

I love high neck turtleneck sweaters and this one is my favorite! Of course the sweater knit is fabulous, the turtleneck is high and adjustable and not tight. Love it! bought red and grey----because that was all in my size.
Rated 3 out of 5 by CDNinCA Neck too tight
I love Joan's items, but this one went back. The neck was so incredibly tight and not at all flattering. The material was just ok, not that soft.
