Fits well.

28th March 2019

Decided to surprise my wife and upgrade her wardrobe for work. Being a guy I'm pretty clueless on what she needed so I went with the top sellers and used the website sizing guide to help find the right size for her. She absolutely loved everything I picked up, everything fits, and looks even more beautiful wearing Isabella Oliver. Couldn't be more happier.

24th March 2019

Never recieved in my order!

10th March 2019

Very good material

6th March 2019

This t-shirt is very comfortable and with plenty of room for a growing bump, all the way of the pregnancy and beyond. A classic basic item worth having

4th March 2019

Great white tshirt, and not sheer at all (especially with the extra support band). Perfect for 2nd and 3rd trimesters.

28th February 2019

Really nice quality. Can wear for work and casual. Would recommend as a wardrobe staple

5th July 2018

Very comfortable and helps to create a capsule wardrobe during pregnancy.

12th May 2018

Summer-weight fabric with a flattering scoop neckline that's not too low

4th October 2017

I do have this in aqua & love it but the pink wasn't quite the right colour for me so I returned it. Good quality material though

11th September 2017

Just didn't suit me the colour was more coral thank a baby pink. Beautiful quality though. I was sorry to return this item.

15th August 2017

Comfortable material

14th August 2017

A wonderful top so far and really fun

10th July 2017

Thicker material than expected but very long

7th July 2017

Very good

26th June 2017

Good quality and fit. As it is a fitted item with ruching, it does accentuate your bump early on but I can imagine it will be very forgiving later on in pregnancy when there's no hiding it in any event!

21st May 2017

Great casual top

25th March 2017

Great fit, washes well. Good layering top.

16th March 2017

So comfy and great quality! I wear it with leggings over the weekend or a Friday dress down day with flats. Highly recommended! I ordered a long sleeve version as well, colours are very bright.

23rd February 2017

I really like this top, comfy whilst stylish. My only comment would be for the lining to be throughout rather than just the top area. Given it is white, it would streamline the look a little better. I have the in navy also and find the shorter lining works better for darker colors.

22nd February 2017

Extremely practical and comfy! Love it! Especially for white tee gals!

20th November 2016

I would recommend as it fits with everything. Good quality

4th August 2016

Wear anywhere. Perfect and comfortable.

23rd June 2016

great staple t shirt. soft and comfortable.

14th June 2016

I love how this top looks but it hasn't worn well at all. I have been wearing it for a few months and already thing it's time to toss as it is pilling a lot. For the price it is not worth it - cheaper Gap items look a lot better!

6th June 2016

This Tshirt seems to have the same good quality and colour fastness as the very hardy yet extremely good-looking IO Tshirts I purchased nearly a decade ago (and still have). However, the panel which is supposed to cover the bust has apparently been shortened, so that it no longer stays down on the upper part of the belly. Instead, it goes barely to the bottom of my bra when I put it on and then gradually rides up until it forms an ugly ridge below the nipple line. Ugh!Please bring back the old cut with the larger panel. It provided secure, reliable coverage.

31st May 2016

I love this top. So comfortable and flattering. Cam be worn casually with jeans or smartened up for work with a skirt.

20th May 2016

Very comfortable and good basic T-shirtHas a personal preference for a neck which is not quite as open

20th May 2016

Very comfortable yet stylish. Great for work and weekends! Highly recommended.

20th May 2016

Cute, comfy top! Fit is true to size, but if you're in between sizes, I would size up. Great quality and will work through the third trimester.

18th May 2016

Had to return as material too clingy.

16th May 2016

I loved this shirt so much, I bought it in two more colors!

14th May 2016


13th May 2016

Great quality and flattering!

13th May 2016

Great item, love the colour and very comfy

13th May 2016

staple item - very comfy, looks good. I'm normally a size 6 but got this in a size 1 and it fits great.

10th May 2016

Recommend to everyone very comfortable great quality and it shows

5th May 2016

The color is slightly more orange than coral, but the fit and quality are excellent.

5th May 2016

This t-shirt is a staple in my wardrobe; it goes well with skirts and cardigans for work as well as with shorts or jeans for the weekend. The neckline is flattering and the ruching makes the top very comfortable.

4th May 2016

Great fit, super comfortable

28th April 2016

Would love it if you did a slightly longer sleeve!

26th April 2016

These seem pretty much as they were 8 years ago in that they still use the same better quality material and are still colorfast (based on my experience with 'apricot' colour). The inner panel seems to have been shortened and now rides up on the lower half of the bust at times unless I take care to specifically tuck it down; another two inches of length would be safer. The Tshirt (like the older variants which I own) pinches slightly under the arms, could definitely use slightly more room in this region. Overall, it's a good basic T, but if I were to purchase for late term pregnancy, I'd go up a size.'Apricot' is not the red shown in the photo. It is a kind of red-orange, unfortunately a bit reminiscent of traffic cones. I nonetheless plan to purchase another one or two in different colours as they are overall quite practical despite their minor flaws.

12th April 2016

Nice bright shade of navy, not that drab almost black navy. Great fit. Love the scoop neck.

29th March 2016

The quality is great and not see through, which is great for pregnant ladies!

23rd March 2016

Bought it for a holiday.

14th March 2016

Though I haven't actually worn this item yet, it is of high quality and is very versatile.

3rd March 2016

This is a shirt that I'll wear both to the office and for meetings, as well as on the weekends. Quality material, very happy with this purchase!

3rd March 2016

The white fabric is thick enough that it is not see through. Well made and the shirt washes well.

11th February 2016

Perfect for summer. Great weight and cut.

8th February 2016

Love this t-shirt. There is a thin layer underneath the chest area so your bra is not visible. I am a 0 and ordered the 0 and 1 to test. The 0 is likely better under cardigans and jackets. The 1 is better as a standalone and not quite so tight. A great staple.

25th January 2016

Like it

21st January 2016

Excellent wearable piece

29th December 2015

Every day.

27th December 2015

The quality of the fabric makes this piece a favourite for most occasions.

3rd October 2015

This is a wonderful "everything" top. The ruche on the side is very flattering and so is the scoop neck. It is made from wonderful thick material and even has double material in the breast area so nothing is see-though. This is a must-have as a staple in your wardrobe.

8th September 2015

Love this top, but wish it wasn't so tight at the breast and arm area... A more relaxed fit would look good and not so confining.

23rd August 2015

Have about 5 of these. Perfect length and comfort. Only downside is that they get a bit bobbly too soon.

7th August 2015

Good quality top, prefer mine to be a bit longer though.

23rd July 2015

These shirts are so flattering and can dress them up or down. The quality is great and I find them to be true to size.

21st July 2015

Really cute but was just too small. Also the top had an extra lining in the chest area that wasn't sufficient to provide a full extra layer of coverage.

20th July 2015

Very comfy and fits well but a bit thin

16th July 2015

Perfect for a growing bump. Not see through or stretched looking in any way. I wear as an everyday casual.

19th May 2015

It's quite tight at the top for the size. Nice colour.

8th May 2015

Daily wear high quality material

Got this in two colors, so cute. Top is lined so has a seamless look. Great quality, fabric is soft. Sized up one size in this piece.

6th April 2015

Hidden support is a bit to tight.

31st March 2015

Everyday use. Smart and causal.Recommend to all.

2nd March 2015

Great essential tee - perfect for home or at the office. Very comfortable and stylish. Great for any trimester - grows with you. Recommended staple for any maternity wardrobe.

17th May 2014

Great colour.

13th May 2014

These are great.

13th May 2014

I love these but the only thing is that when you are pregnant you get very hot so I found that I was sweating alot under the arms - the arm part could be a little baggier to allow for easier breathing.

17th April 2014

Just wish it was available in more colors.

20th December 2013

Must hav!

Fantastic tshirt
6th August 2013

Great wearing and comfortable Well worth the money compared to other maternity brands

31st July 2013

Bought this in the French Navy and absolutely love it

Great basic T for casual or work
23rd July 2013

I bought this T in both white and navy -- first about the white: it has an extra lining at the bust so your bra doesn't show through ... GENIUS! The blue, color-wise, has more of a royal/purple tone to it than a true navy blue, but not so noticeable it looked weird with my navy polka-dot pants I wore it with. The ruching also helped camouflage my starting-to-protrude belly button, as well as where the maternity band on my pants met my now-softer sides. The scoop neck is cute but not too low for work. Highly recommend!

23rd June 2013

Bought this shirt in Raspberry 3 weeks ago and it has become a regular fixture in my wardrobe. I'm in my third trimester and wasn't going to invest in something new..but then it started to get warmer and I wanted something I could wear with a jacket for work or with jeans at home. Love the colour - just wish they had a bigger colour range because I might be tempted to get another...

Great t-shirt
22nd June 2013

Good length, shape, fit, colour (although I own nothing else this colour!).

Great quality; tight sleeves
12th June 2013

This shirt is made of great fabric and I found the fit around the belly great with room to grow. The only thing is the sleeves are pretty tight. I ordered a size 1 (I usually wear a small in tops) and don't have big arms at all and the sleeves are still pretty tight. I would maybe order a size up if you have larger upper arms.

Nice t-shirt, but had to return it
26th April 2013

When I have received the top I straight away felt in love with the material and the colour Raspberry Melange, but it was too short in the shoulder length for me! I'm size 12-14 UK and ordered size 3 as the rest of my IO tops, but it was way to short in the shoulders, it’s just didn’t look good. I can’t say I’m big in breast area ( 34D) or have a shoulders of a swimmer, but the top of the t-shirt didn’t look good, it looked great on the bottom part though. I had to return it. I will probably give it ago with the size 4 as I really liked this t-shirt.

Great everyday staple
17th April 2013

I think this is lovely top and such a good wardrobe staple. I've got a couple of colours and would love to buy some more. My only issue is that is has to be washed at 30 degrees, is this really necessary?

Maternity essential
1st February 2013

These tops are a must have as a maternity wardrobe essential. The fit was perfect, I'm normally a 1 but ordered these tops in a 2 to accommodate my bust and the fit was perfect. The material is lovely and they are super comfortable, looks great with skirts or jeans. Simple and stylish.

Love this top!
21st January 2013

This is my second pregnancy outfitted by IO and I cannot imagine what my wardrobe would be without them! I love the cap scoop tee and have it in multiple colors. It is such a great staple and can be dressed up or down depending on the pants and accessories. I have this top in 3 colors and I wear them all the time. I was a pre-pregnancy size 0/2 at 5'4" and 115 lbs, the size 0 fits great all throughout - including post pregnancy when you are in between your pre-preggo clothes and your maternity gear. You may pay more for their clothing, but it lasts forever with such great wear!

Brilliant! So Comfy!
6th January 2013

This is one of the best things I've got from Isavella Oliver. The tshirt is such lovely soft cotton, it's like silk against my skin. The bust band / inbuilt bra is super soft with no uncomfortable elastic band to squeeze your stomach under your bust unlike the vest tops. I love it. I have 3 of them. My only complaint is that the top comes quite high up to my neck which makes my chest look a little bulky. It would be more flattering if the scoop was lower. They also do a longer version of this top, which I wish I had tried, because this top is quite short, only comes just under my jeans waistband, which is fine, but I do like a little extra length for ruching the top.

Too short and fitted
6th December 2012

I ordered this top in Heather Grey and was disappointed. The top is a tad too short, I usually like them slightly longer to allow for belly growth. I am 22 weeks along so it wasn't the best fit and length for me. It also wasn't as flattering. IO's stripe Ts are much better, more comfortable and flattering. I am sending this back.

All Week Long
16th October 2012

I find as I get further into this pregnancy that I hate jeans. I like dresses or a skirt with a tshirt. I have this tshirt in black, white and pink and I wear them again and again and I love them. I was worried the white would be too see through on the bust, but with the lining it is fine. Over the tummy, the white one can be a little thin but as it is spring I usually have tights on and a skirt. And so with the tights you can't see through too much. But the black and pink are GREAT! They are washing and wearing well, too. I do recommend you follow the instructions though and not put in dryer. Also, be aware that while they are good quality just like any other t-shirt if you wear them 2x a week like I do, they will pill in areas where there is friction. But I tell you, it is incredible quality and holds shape. I like to show off my bump so the fitted look is a winner for me. Love these shirts.

Amazing top!
17th August 2012

I was skeptical about paying so much for this top. Totally worth it! The shirt is made of a strong material that will not pill and last through many pregnancies to come! It almost appears to be a shiny material in the pictures, but it's not. I was 36" in the bust pre-pregnancy and now 38". I ordered the size 3 and it fits perfectly. It's a great shirt pre and post pregnancy. I wore it grocery shopping today, and I'm not even showing. I purchased the shirt in black and white absolutely love them. Buy it! You will be so happy you did!
