Lovely dress but not the most flattering for me!

" I bought this dress for a friend's party. I am 19 weeks pregnant. Although it is a lovely colour and great quality, heavy material, the fit was not flattering. Because it is long and heavy, it hangs around every bump and curve. I am slim - normally a size 8 - and have a large bump, but the pregnancy 'me' is fairly curvy - as is the case with most women. That being the case, it was really unforgiving around my bottom and sides and I had to return it. The long length - I am 5ft 8 and it was a couple of inches past my knees - is worth considering too. All in all I felt a little frumpy and it didn't give me the boost I needed for a sober appearance at a big party! "

" This dress doesn't work for me. It just hangs over my bump and the bust part is too big (I am a 36d during pregnancy). Not fond of the sleeves either and it is very long. I got it in the sale so it doesnt make sense to pay the return costs from spain. I will have it taken up and wear it as a thrown-on over my swimsuit this summer. "

" I'm wearing this dress today and I love the pink! I'm fairly tall (5'8) and it hits me right around my knees. I can see how this would be a hard dress to fit a much shorter person if the length isn't shortened. I am in my third trimester, though, and carrying completely out in front (everyone asks me if I'm having twins) - so it's the perfect length for me. Great quality, as always. "

" I was introduced to Isabella Oliver by a friend that has had 2 kids and raves about her dresses. I had REALLY high expectations for this one item I splurged on during my pregnancy. This dress is going to be my shower dress and a staple for work clothes.
I was disappointed that the fabric is so unforgiving. Being pregnant parts are not as tight as we wish and I the backside shows everything.
I do like the feminine feel this dress gives me. It makes me feel pretty and I will wear it often but I think I am going to need to go invest in some spanx:-( "

" I found this really dress to be a real disappointment. It made my neat 22 week bump look full term and the neckline was far to revealing. I've returned it "

" Waited a while for the dress to arrive but am pleased with it none the less.
It's far too long for me, so will have to have it adjusted - shame they don't make "petite" maternity dresses so that shorties like me don't have to pay extra to have the hem taken up.
It's a lovely heavy fabric so will hang nicely & it is a flattering style.

" I’m so impressed and delighted to discover Isabelle Oliver. The quality and fit of the clothes, which are designed to flatter and be stylish, is a refreshing change to the smock like tops and dresses you see so much of. I’ve bought two wrap dresses and the fantastic Obi top. I feel fantastic in them all. Many thanks, keep up the good work! "

" This is my first IO purchase. The fabric, construction, and draping is high quality as expected based on reviews of IO maternity clothes. I ordered the hot pink dress for my baby shower (11/6/10). I am 35 weeks along. This dress, like most other IO maternity dresses, is intended for someone 5'5" and taller. I am only 5'3", so I anticipated it would be longer on me. However, I was surprised to see that the front was still much longer than the back considering my bump is rather big. If you are a big girl, this dress will make you look large because the front just drapes over the top of your bump. There is a lot of fabric at the front. Since the dress was so long on me, I didn't want to alter it at this point in my pregnancy. So, I wore high heel tall boots with it. Also, I am very busty right now, and this dress provided ample coverage. The dress looked great on me despite being long. I also had on great jewelry accessories and a nice wrap to complete my look. I am pregnant at 45, so I HAVE to always look polished and together from head to toe. I have purchased maternity clothes from all the upscale mainstream maternity stores down to a few items from the bargain chain stores. My number one complaint from them all is the fabric quality!!! However, this dress is so nice, I will probably pay to have it altered to fit me perfectly post baby. The fabric is nice and weighty, and the color is true and vibrant. "

" I bought a size two in the sale as they had sold out of size three. I'm a size 12 but the IO size two fitted just fine - I think their sizing is very generous.
I'm 172 cm and the length is just about Ok - if I was shorter I think I would have thought the dress a little long - certainly to wear with flats.
I think the quality is good - like all of IO's clothes.

" The first IO dress which required *no* alterations (most do, since I currently have a large bust (nursing) and the IO shelf bras are definitely made only for non-pregnant, non-nursing women!
Beautiful dress, feels and fits fabulously, looks dressy but easily dressed up or down with something as simple as the right jewellery. Definitely going in my suitcase too no matter where I'm headed as it can be worn to a semi-formal dinner or going out for pizza equally well. Even with a nursing bra which does *not* shape very hard, it looks great - it is also easy to move over for nursing (with a scarf over my shoulder) and pops back on its own to cover afterwards - no fumbling.
Immediately my favourite dress - and I already own a variety of IO dresses.

" I love the fit of this dress, it's perfect and I'm not even pregnant! I usually wear a 10. I bought a Size 3 and it fits like a glove. My favorite part is the flutter sleeves, they're the perfect length, not to short, not too long. My arms look slender. I wish you'd make this in a shorter version for your regular line of clothes. It is really long. I'm 5'4" and hits way below my knees, mid-calf. 8-10 inches shorter would probably be ideal for most women. Mine will be sent for alterations to make them shorter. I bought one in Black & Blue...LOVE THEM! "

" I am around 163cm tall and this dress was unfortunately an unflattering length for me. It was way too long (I ordered a size 1). I probably needed the 2 for my bust but as the length of the 1 was no good for me I will be returning and not exchanging. It is a shame as I really liked the style and feel of the dress. It was in a very heavy/thick jersery fabric. I would say this dress it made for tall ladies only. "

" I love it, but on me (5ft 4ins), it finishes just below the knee looking a bit matronly! I've shortened it in 15mins with some iron on hemming tape with neat results, and feel great in it. "

" The sizes are big - due to previous comments I ordered the size I thought I would be and the size below and the smaller size fits. At 5'8" and wearing flat shoes the length is perfect. The dress is so comfortable - I really love it and have been complemented on it also "

" Bought for a friend's wedding. Flattering cut and being a wrap dress obvious room for my bump to grow. I've found the sizes quite generous despite following the sizing guide when ordering and at 5'1 I will need to try and get the dress shortened. "
