Got lots of complements for wearing this figure hugging dress 8 months Pregnant.

30th October 2014

I'm planning on wearing this out to dinner with my husband.. Great basic peice to dress up or down. I love the shelf bra built in as well, great idea since jersey can be a bit more revealing up top. I would recommend!

28th October 2014

Fantastic dress, versatile and hugged all the right curves. I was tempted to go a size smaller but it was true to size (I'm a size 10)

20th December 2013

haven't worn it yet, but seems as if its a flawless style/cut for any bodytype.

- as maternity clothing- recommended to my friends- very high quality, very good fabric & design

19th December 2013

Great fit and comfortable, I like the colour too. Wear at the office and accessorise for evening.

19th December 2013

I wore this to a party and received a ton of compliments (with some nice jewelry and killer heels).You can also wear this backwards for a slightly different and still stylish look (that's what i did). If they made it in other colors in the 6 (I've gained weight in weird places this pregnancy and need a little more stretch up top than I did last time) I would buy them ALL.

I haven't worn it out yet as it's too hot but I can only say HUBBA HUBBA from trying it on, it's gorgeous, sexy, embraces your pregnancy... very very happy with it. I'm 4.5months pregnant, a UK10 and 5ft11 and this dress was made to measure! I got it in black and can't wait to wear it when an occasion provides and it cools down a bit! Sleeves are really long and the overall picture is a lovely silhouette.

Simplicity & quality
22nd March 2013

This is really a basic simple & robust dress, that is well made and falls well on a pregnant figure. There is an elastic bra support fabric inside the dress that is a bit uncomfortable but I think the dress décolletage style structurally needed the extra fabric there since there isn't any draping like most IO dresses. Overall I think this dress fits the bill for a basic maternity staple. I much prefer the IO Annabel dress! Please bring that Annabel style back its a showstopper!

Pregnancy never felt so glamorous
12th March 2013

I absolutely love this dress!! I bought the black dress in a size 0/2 (I am 5"7 and wear a size 6/8 in Aussie sizes pre pregnancy) and it fits like a dream. The dress arrived two weeks ago and already I have worn it to work, to casual weekend lunches and dressy dinner events. It is the perfect dress that can be dressed up or down and it is super comfortable. I love the ruching which shows off my bump at 22 weeks and I can see myself wearing this dress right until the end. It's definitely my favourite pregnancy purchase and no other maternity brand compares in terms of getting the right balance of style and comfort. It was my first IO purchase and I'm now a big fan. Splurge a bit and try it for yourself! The dress is totally worth it.

Great dress but rides down
12th February 2013

This is another great dress from IO, with really thick, good quality fabric. My only complaint is that it is quite long with a lot of fabric around the belly and I find it rides down a bit, and I have to keep hitching it up again. Having said that, I am still only 17 weeks, and my bump is therefore quite small, so I might appreciate the extra room in a few weeks.

A wardrobe staple
8th February 2013

All the previous positive reviews about this dress are spot on. It fits well in all the right places (if you are still keen to show your shape with bump) and is so easy and comfortable to wear. Just pull it on and go. It can be dressed up or down - I have worn it for smarter events with heels and day to day with boots. I'm 5ft 6 - and would perhaps ideally have chosen for the dress to be a couple of inches shorter, but not a great problem as with the rouched style you can sort of just pull it up a bit to where you want. Quality of the fabric feels good and like it will wear well - not too lightweight/ clingy which feels important when you are wearing something figure hugging.

Not good for too curvy
7th December 2012

I have a curvy figure and wear US 14. IO size 5 usually fits perfectly. I ordered this dress in blue and black. It didn't look flattering at all. I have a curvy figure, so the dress hugged me in all the wrong places, so in profile I could see my bump sticking out and then at the back my butt. The fabric was also too thick for my taste, heavy, and the long sleeves were not that comfortable. While it is winter so thick fabric is good, I didn't find this very breathable. Had this dress had more room though it would have looked too loose, ruched dresses are best as figure-hugging. But it just wasn't flattering on me, I am sending it back.

Fabulous Dress!
6th November 2012

I just received this dress and I'm in love with it. Ordered it in black and size 2 (I'm a US 6) and the fit is perfect. Just wish it came in more than two colours - steel gray would be nice! Hint, Hint IO designers!

Comfort and style
2nd October 2012

This piece is stunning. Love the blue color and the fit.

Another Stunner!
30th September 2012

Elegant, flattering, sexy, amazing quality, comfortable and versatile! This dress is just perfect in every way. I'm 24 weeks pregnant, 5' 6", 137lbs and the size 1 is perfect with room to grow. I'm a US size 2-4 pre pregnancy. I love that the dress also has a built in shelf bra. My chest has grown (and is still growing..currently I'm a 36D) and the built in bra was designed with that in mind! This dress makes you feel beautiful and sexy while pregnant. It's versatile and is a definite must for every pregnant woman out there. It's well worth the investment! I can't wait to wear this dress for the remainder of my pregnancy!

Just perfect
4th September 2012

It's just the perfect black dress for a pregnant woman. I don't look huge in it though I'm on my 37th week. I hope I'll wear it later as well. It suits for almost every occasion!

The perfect maternity dress!
24th August 2012

I am 18 weeks pregnant and received the ruched dress yesterday after a long search on the net and in the shops for the perfect black maternity dress. I wanted something that is stylish and sexy, grows with me during the entire pregnancy and embraces the bump whilst hiding all the imperfections of my growing hips and thighs. This dress is doing exactly that, and more! It fits perfectly (I am usually a UK size 8-10 and decided to get IO size 1 and I would say the sizes are on the big side, so this was the right choice for me whilst still having plenty of material to grow into) and it is possibly the best cut jersey dress and most comfortable dress I have ever come across. I didn't want to take it off! Love the sewn in 'bra' too which gives me a bit more support and makes my cleavage look great. My husband also loved it and spent considerable time going through the catalogue and suggesting other IO dresses I should consider getting. My best friend is pregnant too and I have just referred her to IO as it really is the best I have seen for budding mums who don't want to give up their style. Every pregnant woman should own one!
