A220508 - Carole Hochman Darling Roses 100% Cotton JerseyGown
I wear a lot of Carole Hochman gowns (though I would appreciate if she updated the styles just a bit, but stay away from garish colors.) I prefer the natural fabrics and 100% cotton is hard to find.
These were a great bargain on Lunch Special and I jumped and purchased 2. Though they weren't bad, the smaller sizing from her normal fit made them a return. Even with the price break my comfort was more important.
Would suggest for your comfort order up if you sit in the higher end of your size.
This has the perfect neck (not to high), perfect sleeve (I wear short sleeve year round), perfect length, perfect material. In other words it's perfect in every way. I came back for more but my size was gone.
Good value, good fit
I bought the pink in size medium and fits well, even tho I take a size 12 to 14. Fabric has a little stretch to it so it works. I'm 5'4" and I am not tripping over it, it is perfect length. I came back for the blue.
I like the fabric, the long length, the absence of lace or any edging that is rough, the openness in the sleeve area, and the not-too-low neckline.
Only 2 suggestions:
1) design a tag that is as "heavenly soft" as the nightgown.
Unfortunately, I had to painstakingly snip it out.
2) use brighter, more hip colors. I only found a similar style in bright colors,
It was sold out!
Thank you for the "input" opportunity!!
CAROLE JUST GETS BETTER AND BETTER!!!!!
I purchased this gown and I absolutely love it. As with all of Carole's products, her first thing is comfort and you get this and more. I wear nothing else but Carole's sleepwear and I own a lot of it. Each piece gets better and better with washing and so soft. That doesn't mean it isn't soft when it arrives, because it most certainly is. Some of it is not so sheer that you couldn't answer the door without a robe and people would think you had a lounger on. However, my favorite thing about Carole's line is that it is always cotton and I find it cooler to wear here in Texas. But I have her winter gowns as well. What can I say? I am a Hochmanista and love all her products. If you have not tried one, you most definitely should, they are the best and for the money, you cannot beat them. I have some from 5 or 6 yrs. ago that look like the day I bought them. I hope you will give not only her gowns, but her 3 piece pj/loungewear. I bought a set and wore it home on the plane from San Francisco and people thought it was a pants suit. They do not look like pajamas, but in the winter, they are great.
Disappointed in Quality
I purchased two Carole Hochman gowns a year ago, loved them, and have been on the wait list to purchase more ever since. They have been worn and washed over and over again and the fabric did not pill (I hate that and throw away practically new gowns that pill). Since my wait list seems as though it's not going to be filled, I purchased two of these gowns. The jersey cotton on these is much thinner, the roominess is not nearly as good, and room is important to a 3X, they were made in China instead of Indonesia. and they cost more. I put them through two wash cycles right away, and the knit looks fuzzy now and like it may pill.
