      now i know Yong kim is not loved by all but her items are far nicer than most of the MW range imo as the fit is very very good. top brands will take many many measurements to ensure a good fit all over. cheaper stuff specially in larger sizes don't cut it if you pardon the pun
      You are so right. When you inevitably have to have more fabric, you need it to drape and flow not flop and drag!

      For me, my one try of YK was too tight across the bust and swam around the hips. I find most fashion suits a lead shape more than a busty apple like me.

      Yes OSKA is a much higher price point & it is a long time since I bought any but they did last and wear well.Of course if you like linen the crumpled look comes with it!I used to spend hours ironing it—why? What a waste of time!!

      All brands need to realise that when they size up the measurements of a garment, they cannot forget the arms. As we increase in the bust, waist and hips we normally increase the circumference of our necks, upper and lower arms, and our thighs and calves as well. We shouldn't have to remind "designers" of this basic fact!!
      Spot on MML ! tight arms and armholes are a constant design fault in a lot of ranges, not just QVC. Many of the garden centre now sell a lot of clothing - the Made in Italy range is a favourite, which look lovely and roomy until you see the pipe cleaner sleeves. Once upon a time I would never wear sleeveless dresses, but now I do to get over the armhole problem, and I wear a shorter layered baggy top over the dress - works a dream. So I'm glad I kept my Dreamkeeper fringed ponchos, they get worked overtime now.!

      another odd thing with qvc fashion they have the same styles, fabrics and even colours just with varying labels and prices

      Well, Boff, haven't we always said that there's this massive warehouse somewhere in the East with a pick'n'mix selection, so all that changes are the labels ! and then there's the Menu of names created for Polyester, so, take your choice from Brazil, Milky, etc etc.

      Grizas is another brand that you may like if not already familiar with it. They do a mix of styles in linen and silk/cotton mix. Priced a little cheaper than Oska. Ralston is another great brand. Both do sizes from around 10 up to around 24/26


      I buy a fair bit off ebay. I'd rather pay for a VGC used item from a quality brand than the same money for a new MW.

      i agree with you on quality pre loved items. i lost a lot of weight a few years ago and could fit a size 14/16 i was able to buy top end designer bits from jean muir for example. so plain but crafted and fit like a dream. another brand i like is ghost not the frilly stuff but the plain bits. i live in a good area for lovely pre loved ladies stuff.
