I have never seen anything on QVC that I would spend a dime on.

(and I am a slightly overweight middle aged woman...)

I have ordered household things over the years from QVC. I ordered a few clothing items over the years, as well, but things never seemed to fit, except one 2 piece top (with tank). It was very nice, well contructed, true to size, and a great coral color - eyelet fabric - and I enjoyed it for several summers.

I have friends who like Denim & Co, as Jukesgrrl mentioned. I ordered a pair of capris in that brand and they were very well constructed and I would have liked them - but they just didn't fit me (pants that fit me correctly are very hard to find). I had to send them back b/c of the fit issues, but as far as quality, I was impressed.

I also ordered a pair of Susan Graver jeans but they didn't fit exactly right, either, so I returned them. But they were very cute - the cut just wasn't for me.

The thing about QVC is - they have a great return policy.

I stand corrected.

Yep; and that goes for all the shop-from-home tv shows.

I can get them at QVC and they change up the colors every season, always keeping black and white (Denim & Co. sells other styles, too, just for the record). I don't have to waste time chasing all over stores looking for what I need and only finding things that are embellished and have pictures on them.

I work at home and live in the Southwest where dressing is very casual. These shirts, with Capri pants, sandals, and jewelry from my silver collection get me through most of my life. When it's cold, which is seldom, I switch to black jeans, boots, and a leather jacket, but I still need my T-shirts. I'm more interested in utilitarian clothing with good value than in trying to impress someone. I'm the same way with my hair. I pay top dollar for a good cut every six weeks. After that, I just wash and wear. I'd rather spend my money on books, travel, and art than on things that are of ever-changing style. QVC helps me to save money and be low maintenance.
Ah, thank you for posting. I happen to like QVC's clothing. I, too, live in the Southwest (NM), and am better dressed than anyone else I see when shopping. In fact, I get asked, "Are you from out of town?" "Did you just come from work?--most people we see look like they just rolled out of bed". No kidding. I love Susan Graver's non-wrinkle, drapey liquid knit tops, Quacker Factory's comfy Dream Jeannes, Denim & Co's capris, and Liz Claiborne tees. I save a ton of money as would have to drive 3 hours to a shopping mall!!
