Rated 5 out of 5 by Seargent Love it
I love this Waistcoat - I have it in the blush and the grey and every time I wear it, somebody asks me where its from. I'm a size 12 and have a medium and a large - because of the loose style, both are fine. Only just started buying Nina Leonard and ordered the blush Coatigan on waitlist yesterday - looks lovely, can't wait to receive it. Will be buying more pieces in the future if they are as good as this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ditsygirlygirl Quality wrap, with a touch of class
I was pleasantly surprised when I received this , I've seen other women wearing something very similar to this garment out and about .. It does not look cheap or frumpy , I'm a size 10 and got the small and I love it.... I've bought other knitwear from Nina Leonard in the past and I like the fact there's a bit of quirkyness to this waistcoat ... And I love the feel of it too cozy xx.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaughingCow Comfortable and stylish
This is a modern, stylish and very comfortable waistcoat. The knit is smooth (not scratchy) and although light to wear, layers in the warmth.
I have worn a brooch to wrap it around (don't like belts) and I've worn it inside and outside the house. Now the cooler weather is here and I'll be wearing a scarf soon, will probably leave this waistcoat open, edge to edge, and use as a layering piece. It's versatile enough, looks good and is the right fabric weight to earn itself a place in my daily wardrobe.
Whilst slightly more money than I would have liked to pay, I don't regret it and would heartily recommend to others to try.

I don't often write reviews but felt I needed to considering some of those previously. I watched a programme on QVC helping people understand how to layer and this item is perfect for layering. I have bought two colours and wear on top of other long line cardi's and have received positive comments when wea ring this item. I have recommended this item to work colleagues and agree with another reviewer, Marquise, that QVC offers great advice to those who need a bit of help to think more creatively about style and clothes. I like the different ranges on offer but my bank balance has groaned a bit recently!

Rated 3 out of 5 by stanza A Nina No
I was prepared to give this a go despite the negative reviews as I thought it looked lovely. However, the fabric was not as expected. It looked like a soft felt on screen but is stiffer. It just didn't hang right either and I put this down to the cut & material too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blue60 A great autumnal cover up
I also cannot understand the negative reviews in regards to this waistcoat and if you are a knitter (like me) then to make something like this would take a lot of time and cost a whole lot more than the introductory price. I agree the collar can feel a little thick around the neck if you wear it as the model is doing in the video, but I prefer to place the collar over the shoulder(as the lady from Nina Leonard is showing you, it looks quite sophisticated that way) and then bring it around the front and wear closed with a brooch, kilt pin, etc. You do need to play around with an item like this to see what suits you best. I think it is a stylish alternative to a coat on an autumnal day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pristine TRENDY!
I like another reviewer, really like this waistcoat. I am a size 16 and ordered the large. It is chic, stylish, and drapes well, and full without being too full. The collar can be arranged in various ways and my neck will be nice and warm in the winter. I have given this 4 stars, as my only concern is - how well the acrylic fabric will 'wear' - will it rub, pill, and look shabby quickly?. We will see, as I want to save it for the cooler weather. A fabric mix with some nylon or polyester or similar would make it more hardwearing. Hope the fabric is OK!

Rated 5 out of 5 by marquise Great top
Ho my God I have read the poor reviews , I can't believe it , Really QVC costumers ??? !!!, I didn't know you had such a poor imagination,
The waistcoat is absolutely beautiful , and the fabric is very nice like a bee waive , I love the style so elegant and easy to wear with long sleeve dress or tops
I like better closed , so what I did I have removed the two pieces of fabrics by the shoulder , I bought in the blush in M , I have cute each pieces in x2 who was only there to hang the garment , so now I have x4 pieces of that string cute , then I have hand stitched very lightly to hold the fabric in the inside when you cross over and x2 in the outside to hold the garment closed , so that it stays nicely into place ,my advise it don't close it to tight leave it a bit loose , so at the back it doesn't cling on your bum , then you can wear it with a belt on top or not . With the collar I pout it down like the presenter first show on the original video , more around the shoulder down , you can have it too with a brooch , it is lovely , great peace to have and wear very versatile .
I highly recommended , The bade review are totally unjustly is absolutely not the case for this garment , just play around and have a bit of imagination, that all !!..I highly recommend that you buy it and try for yourself ,
