Quacker Factory Zip Front Velour Vest w/ Rhinestone Details
I feel great in the lugs green vest. The sparkle is an added feature, but not gaudy. I bought the blue for my friend. She loves it, too! The zippered pockets are an added bonus!
I had previously ordered this vest in Hunter Green, and I have worn it many, many times. I love it. It came on again, and I ordered in basic black, thinking I would get even more wear out of it. The green was fine in every way. I like to wear the collar flat rather than up against my neck, and it laid nice and flat. Not so with the black. The black colar was very lumpy and wouldn't lay flat. Even the fabric seemed different in black -- not as much body, slippery and sloppy. I don't know why a change of color would make such a difference, but in this case it did. Love the style, and enjoy the hunter green, but had to send the black one back. In general, I have had very good luck with Quacker Factory. I am 5'2", weigh 178 lbs, am bigger in the hips, but didn't have any problem with zipping it all the way down. I order XL from Quacker because of my hips. Sometimes I order L in tops. They are very generous.
Have in 3 colors with same problem, kept anyway
I think this vest is just beautiful! The velour is luscious. It washes and dries well. The colors are vibrant. My first was black in 1X and I couldn't zip it over my hips because the lining is in non-stretch fabric. So I've been raising it at waist level to zip it and I just roll the vest under. The zippered pockets still completely show and I think it looks great. I ordered my second in raspberry hoping that Quacker Factory had fixed the problem with the lining. They hadn't, so again I kept the vest and just zip it up and roll it under. Now my third vest in green unfortunately STILL has the same problem with the lining. Only this time I noticed that it was tighter than the other 2 and the lining has ripped a little bit. I am ashamed to send it back so I'll just mend it and wear it as I do the other two vests. I would recommend this vest to only those that have small hips. Reading the other reviews, I am not alone. Didn't notice if they kept or not, but this is worth keeping. Wear as I do or just wear it open.
I have been a QVC customer for many years, and have recently noticed that the quality of several of my favorite brands are not as good as they used to be. I was shocked to open this vest and find that it only had rhinestones on one side! It's being returned for one that has stones on BOTH sides. I also ordered a sweater on this same day and received it in the wrong color. I will keep it, since I don't have time to exchange it before the birthday of the person it was bought for. QVC can do better!
I ordered 2 of these in an XL and 1X because I wasn't sure about the sizing. They are very generous in the fit. I decided to keep both ....the 1x will work nicely over some of my really bulky sweaters. I read the reviews and can honestly say I see nothing wrong with either garment. ...for the price they are really nice and soooooooooooo comfy cozy.
The bling is not too much-just a nice detail.
The Green was not cut correctly
My closet is full of Quacker cloths so I ordered my normal size. I am between a 1X and a x-large. So I ordered the 1 X so I would have ample room for a top underneath. Well it looks beautiful coming out of the package. Once I put it on immediately found it bunched up in spots because of the lining was pulling at the fabric. When I tried to zipper it I found that it couldn't close at the hips, not even tightly. It needed at least 4 more inches to do this. So it was too tight at the hips. The style was just what I was looking for, however I was disappointed that the sizing was off to such a great extent. Sadly back it went.
I agree with the review that stated they were disappointed in the nap of the fabric. The vest just sort of hangs - no shape or body.
NOT FOR ME
I was disappointed in this vest. I ordered the blue and something about the nap of the velour made it looked worn and dull. The fit was good and the rhinestones were very pretty, but due to the fabric, I returned the vest.
Looked great on TV......Does not fit well, lining is taught, velour looks used. Have actually seen better at JC Penny for half the price.
I received this today in the hunter green xs. I am 5'10" and weigh 120 and it fits perfect.
It is just the right length and weight. Can wear this year round. Would definately reccommend.
fit problem with lining
Received the blue vest. Noticed that the lining is not made of a stretch fabric like the velour. That is why it doesn't fit properly. Now that I am reading the reviews, I see that others are disatisfied with the fit too!!!!! The actual style is nice but when it hangs
flop-ily, you can't get too excited about wearing it!!!! Going back.
LOVE the vest!
When I saw this as one of the items for AM style tomorrow, it made me stop to think I already have one in the royal blue and I love it. (I have the hunter green on order) I wore the blue one all last fall and winter and got several compliments on it. Bling is nicely done down each side of the garment and I found it to be very attractive. I found the fit to be right on, but honestly don't zip it much. I often like to wear it open. I just LOVE Quacker Factory - I always have and I really miss Jeanne. I have been ordering for years and have a closet full.
I adore Angel and think she's doing a super job
