I feel as though I got the deal of a lifetime. When this went on super sale I snatched it up hoping that it would meet my expectations....and it did! This is a wonderful coat. I have many Liz Claiborne coats but this is my first puffer. My concern was that it would be too cumbersome and look that way too. However that was not the case. I believe that for appearance the color blocking eliminated that. I bought medium in mauve. I am 5'4" and 145# the coat fits close to the body but I have no intentions on wearing anything warm or heavy under it. If you need that feature perhaps you'll want to go up a size. The hood is big which lays nice when down and has toggles to pull it tight if a sudden snow storm arrives as they do in Chicago. The mauve color is in the LC family of rose mist which was the color of the LC anorak quilted coat that I purchased. Now I can use my hat, scarves and gloves for both. Also want to mention that the zippers are small and are pretty much invisible when closed. I did rub some bar soap on them to make them looser. However when closed it just makes those lines in the coat so flattering when you wear it. Can't gush anymore then I have.
Rated 3 out of 5 by BP2hope RUNS SMALL
Be aware that this coat runs very small. In the Claiborne collection, l normally order a size small (and in other collections at QVC, l normally order an extra small). Nonetheless as usual before placing an order, l checked "Garment Specifications" and found that the measurements on this coat would provide ample room. Not so! When l finally got the coat and tried it on, everything was tight over a summer T-shirt--let alone over winter clothing. So, to recap: order one size up from the Claiborne collection and two sizes up from Denim & Co or Susan Graver.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jaebee Very pretty and very warm coat!
I purchased this coat in the Mauve. I love the colors and the coat is so soft. I also enjoy the idea of a puffer coat that is made to fit your body without making you feel squished or bloated. It's the perfect fit. I purchased the Large because I have a larger bosom and I wanted to be sure it fit well. The sleeves are wonderful because they are gathered under the outer sleeve which help prevent any draft from traveling up your arms and making you cold. The hood is nice to just throw over your head to run through the snow or rain. It
is the warmest coat I've ever owned. NO JOKE! Almost too warm because I find myself unzipping after a while. BUT, that's what coats are for right, to keep us warm???
There are a few minor complains I have about the coat- because I purchased the Mauve I notice every little speck of dirt and it picks up stains very easily. Good news is it can be thrown in the washer on a gentle cycle and all the stains and dirt come out. Bad news is my first coat ripped the inside lining when I washed it. I was disappointed because I thought the lining would have been better made. I was within my 30 day window so I simply returned it and got another. I'm in love again.
Great purchase...even if I got it at the end of winter. Next year I will be prepared from the beginning! Thanks Liz Claiborne and QVC:-)
Rated 5 out of 5 by Magoo26 Excellent Coat
Very well-made winter jacket. (Even has an inside pocket.) Ordered one size up from my usual D&C size and it fit well. Love the longer length - won't ride up while shoveling snow. Thanks for a great deal on this.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Barbara5 Love this coat
I was really pleased when I received this coat. Fit is good...Love the inside knit cuff in the sleeve...Nice and warm. Mauve color is a gorgeous neutral. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the pockets are useless...small and zippered and weirdly placed...I don't use them. Price is too good to pass up.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Annew Beautiful coat!
I got this in the black and I love it. The mauve also looked so pretty online. It was really hard to choose. The coat is extremely warm but not heavy and the vertical lines on the side give the coat a nice fit that flatters the figure. At first I thought the hood might not work well because it is really big and could come down over my eyes, but I was outside supervising recess on a cold morning and it stayed just where I placed it on top of my head. The faux fur lined pockets are so luxurious! This coat is very high quality and an excellent price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by denham Love, love, love this coat
This is my first Liz Claiborne purchase. I am a fan of Denim & Co. and Quacker Factory and usually don't look at other designers. I am so glad I ordered this coat. Have been looking for a puffer but couldn't find one that I liked at a good price. Luckily I was online when this coat was offered during a lunch time special offer. Would have loved it in purple but will settle for the black that I got.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaas Especially Warm Coat
I like this coat. It is comfortable and large enough to layer clothing. The lining in the arms is cuffed so no wind rushes up the sleeves. The length is very good.
