"I received positive comments when I wore this top to work. My colleagues commented that you could see that it was a quality top.
I haven't used the nursing function of the top yet as I am only just 6 months pregnant.

"This is a great shirt to wear at home and run errands in. The fabric is very stretchy and feels cozy on the skin. My only minor complaints are that the front of the shirt has a lot of fabric to it in the chest area and made me look top-heavy and broad. Also, the bottom of the shirt clings to my hips and behind, instead of flaring out, which made my post-partum belly more prominent. But as a casual shirt, it's great."

"Just bought this in blue and was then surprised to read some of the other reviews. I bought my 'normal' IO size and it's fine for me. The only problem was that when I first put it on I put the wrap around bit at the front when it should be at the back - once I'd fixed that it fitted beautifully.
I agree that some photos of how you lift the cross-overs to breastfeed discretely would be helpful - one of the other reviewers mentions pulling them down but they lift up!
I think this is very well designed and am looking forward to getting lots of wear out of it :-)"

"It is a snug fit under the bust, as other reviewers have said. However, it looks great and the fabric is lovely.
Because of the layers of fabric - it does take an age to dry."

"Did not agree with previous reviews. Looks good on model. Not flattering to bust, very unflattering to tummy post birthj. Need to be very tall and have a completely flat stomach!!"

"I looked at this top on the website for ages before taking the plunge. I eventually decided to treat myelf thinking I should have something that would make me feel nice.
Sadly, despite buying my usual IO size, it was MASSIVE. The shoulders were sloppy, the wrap around bits saggy, the arms and tummy loose. Generally not good look at all. Returned.

"I purchased this in my usual IO size just after LO was born and, like others have said, had to return and ask for a size up as it was not stretchy enough across my bust. This was frustrating as I then had to wait a while for my return to be sent back to me. The top is however lovely and fits flatteringly over a post pregnancy tummy. I even got use out of it after giving up breastfeeding."

"I ordered this in the old colour green, not quite what I'd expected. Love the new colour blue, so have ordered that.
Other reviews suggested going up a size, so I ordered a 3 (when I usually get IO 2) and I should have bought the 2 as it's a little loose around the shoulders.
I've finally worked out the feeding method with the top, but wonder if IO could put a photo, diagram or video on the website to show others.
Allows for discreet feeding, just what I was looking for.

"After reading some of the comments about sizing I was a little worried about the fit but went ahead and ordered my usual size. I shouldn't have worried as it fits me perfectly and for once, my small bust looks great!!! I am 21 weeks and this looks fabulous now and I will definitley fit me up to delivery and then for breastfeeding later (the soft gathers at the front will cover any post-delivery wobbles). Terrific buy."

"A lovely nursing top on which I have received several compliments. My only criticism would be the sizing which definitely runs small. As other reviewers have said you do need to buy a size bigger than your normal size - I am normally an IO size 2 but had to buy this in a size 3. I purchased it in the green which is a gorgeous colour. It would be wonderful if it was available in a greater variety of colours or if there was a greater variety of nursing tops available."

"I went with a size up like other reviewers said to, glad I did. I'm about 8 months and it fits like a dream and looks great too. I was afraid that it might be too low cut but it was fine. Another great purchase, i'm always happy with my isabella oliver buys!!!"

"I normally consistently wear a size zero including in Isabella Oliver. However, this top is WAY TOO SMALL! This would not be shocking except for the fact that it is a NURSING top and the place it is small is in the bust and ribcage! My bust was completely squished down- I could hardly pull it over my chest, and I haven't even started nursing my second baby yet- Not to mention that I am no big-busted woman- believe me, so if I am sizing up I have a feeling others wiith average to large bust sizes will most certainly have to! Overall, lovely looking top but you will probably have to size up."

"My only slight reservation is that when you pull down the top to breastfeed, the breast is fully exposed. It would be helpful if there was a bit of panelling underneath the outer layer of the garment so that the top of the breast could remain covered. That is why I have given it 4 instead of 5 stars."

"The best maternity top i have purchased. It is really flattering and i feel fantastic when i wear it. Breast feeding in it is super as it is very discreet. I would higly recommend this top to anyone who is breast feeding. Another fab pointer is it is loose fitting under bust to hide that baby bulge that hasn't quite gone yet. Really comfy fitting."
