I quit watching Diane Gilman earlier in the year after returning my orders over and over again over size issues. Have any of you noticed if that problem has been cleared up yet? She has some cute things and it is a shame the sizing has lost her customers. It seems like HSN would insist on her fixing the problem because they are losing money every time something is returned. I’m on the fence about even watching her today if the sizing is still all over the board.
Well ,I’ve worn the chambray and black new Lux jeggings – each one whole day. Both have baggy knees! My perfect jeans appear to have a flaw. I ordered the indigo and white, which haven’t arrived.
I had to wash the black once only, due to the usual smell. To be fair, I will wash the baggy ones to see if that brings them back. The reviews said they washed beautifully. I love the fit and feel of these, so I’m hoping to keep them. Has anyone else had the knees bag this badly?
Well, as long as I stay way from Diane’s super stretch I’ll get the perfect in the waist but the legs are long and needs a cuff in them:)
I wish the designers would have models in flat shoes to show the length:)
Perhaps maybe this will be helpful:)
I’ve resurrected an old post of mine since we’re on the subject……….
“Can someone pleeeeeze tell me why the crotch (just the V area) is always large enough to fit a male appendage and it’s two companions?
I “get it “ that a *tummy bulge* can begin under the bust all the way down to the top
of the V of the crotch.
I get the back fat, the love handles, the larger booty, the rounded hips, the heavier inner and outer thighs just below the V of the crotch but
does the actual V, where the pubic hair is, really gain weight?
I’d really like to know because that would explain the *pouf* of extra material needed.
Sorry to be so graphic but I am talking about the fit of a garment and the crotch is a body part just like any other.
We all have seen naked women, our mothers, sisters, friends, at the gym etc. but I’ve never seen a fat crotch.
If someone wants to chime in here on the crotch subject I’m all ears.”
Looks like a potential crotch issue to me……..
Someone say it ain’t so!
I was just cleaning out my closet and getting rid of many pairs of Diane Gilman jeans. They are all different sizes and none of them fit right. The only ones that are ok are the pull on jeggings and even they end up too baggy in the legs for me. I think I’m done with her also. So many times I don’t bother sending them back because who wants to pay all the shipping and handling? I figure I’ll wear them around the house but I never do so I quit!
Just received the new TS jeggings from last weekend. No smell,perfect , comfy fit and fabulous fabric. I first ordered chambray and black. I just went back for indigo as its still free shipping today. I can honestly say, this is my favorite . The waist doesn’t bind, either.
Jumping in to say I’ve had issues with EVERYONE regarding sizing on HSN except for French Rendezvous; no clue as to why.
The HSN size chart is useless, IMHO. I think every vendor needs to have a chart for THEIR line of clothing because they are NOT measuring in any way, shape or form to the HSN fit chart. Either HSN has to change theirs or the vendors do.
I have had to return or exchange 90% of the clothing AND shoes I’ve purchased. If my size is not available, it’s returned and I have any shipping and handling credited back to me. Why? Because I’m using the chart provided and the item doesn’t fit so SOMETHING is defective; either the HSN chart or the vendors’ factory. Kinda odd how last year this wasn’t an issue for me with the SAME vendors.
Thank you so much for bringing up this horrendous size issue. I have to say, Diane Gilman isn’t the only HSN clothing vendor with size roulette. I have some Iman things that fit wonderfully. Loved her jeans that were a TS recently. Ordered two more pairs in the same size but different colors and they were dramatically different in size. Ordered some of the Serena Williams leggings. The legs were huge. If I had tree trunks for legs they might have fit. Ordered a smaller size and the legs were still humongous – many inches larger around than my legs. They look like baggy pants in the legs instead of leggings. Maybe if I got them five sizes too small in the waist I’d get legs that fit my legs.
I’ve complained and complained and complained to HSN about this but apparently they don’t care. At all.
Thank you for bringing this up:)
I too have issues on sizing ever since she went to super stretch in the legs and waist too long legs and wide waist:)
Peace and love:)
… thanks., I haven’t bought DG 2 in awhile.. I used to buy an upscale designer purse that would emote a weird chemical smell from the dye in the exotic woven leather.. I had to return it to store and thought my salesgirl would laugh.. she agreed..it smelled up my entire bedroom when I opened it from the plastic. Hope this doesn’t happen. I do reneged the sizing and quality of her Dennis m had changed drastically and realize it’s made .. you know where which is the biggest part if problem., I’ll let you all know. Your posts are hilarious and poignant too!! Cheers!!
.. your post had me rolling .. LMAO.. for real!! ??????
@Fairmaiden, I give you a five star *****, and a two thumbs up on your statement. DG’s clothes smell like a refinery…chemicals. And, we all know this is not a good thing and it’s NOT GOOD FOR OUR HEALTH! DG first of all, then HSN second of all, should address this serious problem. Hopefully the two of them will read our concerned comments.
There will be an additional show this next weekend with Joy and Iman. I purchase a lot of Iman’s items and love the, and also Joys. Some good of Joys and some not so good. But with the two of them together again, Joy always has to lead the show and she always gets the last work in. I would like to see Iman take the lead instead of Joy this time.
Diane is a one woman show, I haven’t watched in other a year because it’s like watching hosts being held hostage. Of course my job would be in jeopardy as a host, because I would pull-up a stool, cross my legs, a good stife drink in the other hand and puff a cigerette in the other and just let her steam roller through. She has no regard for the art of conversation, consistently interrupting or talking over the hosts and phone callers. One observation I noticed years ago, she has an entirely different demeanor when working w/Colleen. This tells me she knows better.
She gives new meaning for having a spokeperson represent your company. When I’m curious I check the website w/her presentations on MUTE. She is just plain rude!:womanmad:
Gosh.. I remember this.. I loved the concept of her new Luxsport alth-leisure line.. much better pice points and sizing offered compared to that well-known yoga line that is $$$.
Anyway, I ordered a lot and will have to see about problems posted… two celebrities have come out with similar looks too but not made so well.. keeping fingers crossed. Will post my reviews… thanks all!
I can’t stand that woman. What a joke. My first DG purchases were made earlier this year, I believe. They were ponte pants and jeggings that I returned after trying exchanges. Like u said, the sizing was all over the board. I am not giving her any more chances.
