"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"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!"

"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!

"Being 6 months pregnant and 42 size, I had to exchange it for a 40 as the sleeves were bit too long and slightly large even for me, 1.75m tall. Size 40 fits me just perfect, I'm very happy with the choice I made, as this dress is sexy yet elegant. I think I will use it long time as it's a passe-partout."

"I absolutely love this dress and plan to live in this whilst at work.
It helps to maintain a professional image whilst being more comfortable than you can imagine being at work !
I am 5'3" and was worried about the length, but it comes to just below the knee which is great for work.
A must have maternity item !

"This dress is very comfortable and sexy especially, if like me, you love showing off your bump. My bum is very flat and the dress would definitely look even better on someone with some junk in their trunk, but I feel great when I wear it nonetheless. My only complaint is that it is made of synthetics which I ordinarily avoid but had to make an exception as I could not find any maternity clothes I like anywhere near as much as this brand."

"Have looked at these for years and always though a bit expensive. However needed something for important biz meeting and to pack.
It was very low cut but the lining pulls up and makes a bit of a cowl so was great and then after when meeting a friend for drinks I tucked it in again! Was thinner than i expected but just clingy enough to be subtly sexy but very smart.
Loved it - will wear for years
I'm a tall 14/16 and the size 4 was great.

"This dress is very cute, stylish and versatile. You can dress it up with heels and jewelry or dress it down with boots and a belt. The slate grey color is gorgeous...different than basic black but still versatile. It is extremely comfortable and washes well. My only issue would be that it runs large. Even at full term it was slightly large around my belly. I exchanged it for a size 1 and it was still a little baggy. Perhaps a 0 would have worked better but i decided to keep the 1. I am a US size 4 or 6."

"I saw this dress on a tall, thin model in a magazine and loved the look. My pre-pregnancy ht/wt was 67" and 135 lbs....curvy hips with large breasts...not quite the same body type as the model. I was hesitant to order the dress as it is form fitting. However, my husband said "WOW that's sexy!" when I modeled it for him. It hugs in all the right places and the ruching allows for belly expansion. I am pregnant with twins, and have worn the dress twice so far (at 16 weeks and 21 weeks pregnant), to a wedding and Christmas party, accessorized with boots, colorful scarves, and jewelry. I can definitely continue to wear the dress further into my pregnancy. It travels well in a suitcase, and feels like the most comfortable t-shirt I have ever worn! I have received many compliments on it. It doesn't look like typical maternity wear. My goal was to buy only one dress while pregnant that could be worn more casually or dressy depending on the occasion, and this was the perfect buy...very versatile and stylish."

"A really comfortable dress. Great for every day wear. Good quality material. Hides all lumps and bumps at the side whilst showing off baby bump! Only criticism is that I think it was designed for someone a bit taller than me."
