Beautiful double jersey dress. Colour looks fab on. Fit is flawless. I love all the jersey dresses and tops i've purchased. Must try the trousers next time.

23rd February 2015

I picked this piece to wear out to dinner. It fit well and was incredibly comfortable.

9th February 2015

A fab dress to wear casually or dress it up and be a bit more glam. I love the quality of the dress and look forward to wearing it at my birthday dinner.

12th January 2015

Did not fit me very well. Even with an athletic shape I found the bottom half too fitted - not comfortable with this style, but probably just down to my personal taste

13th May 2014

It fits me like a glove and always gets or night!

13th May 2014

Wonderful quality. Great design for both day and evening.

8th January 2014

The quality, colour and style are just as the marketing images portray. I did however follow some of the previous reviews that had indicated that the dress was small fitting and purchased a size 12 rather than my usual 10....I wish I'd ordered a 10 as it could've done to be a bit more snug.....but hey-ho, I'm now thinking of buying in a different colour (size 10 this time!!).

8th January 2014

All women, who wish to look sexy yet stylish!

7th January 2014

So pleased with the quality and the great slimming effect it gives me

7th January 2014

Beautiful dress. Very flattering.

7th January 2014

Great quality of material and excellent fit . perfect for winter and colder days. Low key but gives you an opportunity to accessorise however you want.

7th January 2014

The dress had white stains some of which I couldn't remove properly even by washing the dress

7th January 2014

How do you mean use it !! I wore it !!If you are slim both dresses fit well. You cannot run in this one but it looks very good !!Quality was fine quite a strong material .

7th January 2014

This dress is ultra comfortable and looks great so long as I hold my stomach in. Love the colour (I usually wear black).

7th January 2014

This dress is lovely. Dressed down or accessorised for evening it makes me feel sexy and groomed. Fabulous quality and comfortable to wear. I would recommend to anyone looking for a chic silhouette.

7th January 2014

A simple dress but fits well and looks very elegant. The colour is particularly flattering. The stretchy fabric is a bit unforgiving of lumps and bumps so 'control underwear' makes it look a lot better.

6th January 2014

I am delighted with the jessica dress.

22nd December 2013

Office to night.Bought a size up so it's not too clingy. Need good underwear to hide the lumps and bumps. Love the dress. I have all 3 colours

21st December 2013

Texture and fit was great.

19th December 2013

A beautiful dress to wear. It is very comfortable to wear at work. It is very flattering.

19th December 2013

I love this dress - I feel fabulous in it and it's really flattering.

19th December 2013

The dress is simple but easily dressed up. It holds you safely in all the right places !I would recommend the dress to everyone for day or evening wear.It is of a high quality and washes well.

19th December 2013

I use it for everyday activities

19th December 2013

I would say that this comes up true to size if not a little generous. I am between a 10 and 12 and opted for the 10. Very sexy. I will be returning this one as I preferred the purple.

19th December 2013

I would say that this comes up true to size if not a little generous. I am between a 10 and 12 and opted for the 10. Very sexy. Gorgeous colour.

19th December 2013

wearable, washable, stylish and great quality.

10th December 2013

Beautiful product

Must-have dress
8th September 2013

This dress has beautiful line and embraces my hour-glass figure perfectly. Being only 166cm tall, I had to shorten the dress to achieve middle of the knee length which suits me best and have a heavier hemline for perfect drop. The dress can be worn for any occasion with appropriate accessories. Be ready for attracting extra attention from male population though!

Yikes! That's sexy!
10th August 2013

I had been thinking about this dress for a long time. It was worth the wait! The great jersey fabric - form fitting and gets rid of all the lady lumps. Great chic length which adds elegance in a pinch. A guaranteed crowd and husband pleaser. If you buy and wear this - expect attention. Love it!!!

19th July 2013

I wore this dress to work and LET me just say people were WOWED!! The fit the elegance was perfect for this dress! I love LOVE Isabella Oliver!!!

1st July 2013

Lovely dress, cosy but cool. sizing dubious as usual. buy one size up.

God I look gorgeous in this dress!
4th June 2013

OK, that might seem a bit vain, but this dress really does work wonders on a middle-aged housewife. The 2 layers stop it from being too tarty and clingy. Sizing is quite small though.

3rd June 2013

Great quality
2nd June 2013

Beautifully made dress. Could do with a zip for ease of getting on and off as it is a very snug fit

Perfect all rounder!
28th May 2013

This is a comfortable, easy to wear and very stylish LBD. The quality of the double lined jersey is exceptional, the fit is fantastic and it is perfect dressed up or down. However, based on previous comments - I too am a size 8 and had to order a 12 - but it is the best fit ever!

Super dress!
19th April 2013

This is a lovely dress as per the other comments on here, and I was delighted to get it at a great price in the flash sale promotion! I am 5'3" and a size 10 and quite often I am a size 8 with Baukjen so I ordered the size 10 based on comments abotu this dress being on the small size. I actually needed a size 12. The 10 did fit but it was very tight and a bit too figure hugging. The 12 is much better and the length good, even with me only being 5'3".

Sexy stylish and comfortable
11th April 2013

This dress is a genius in its sheer simplicity. The fabric is fabulous quality which you can't fully appreciate until you try it on. It gets a 4 for fit only because its a bit of a struggle over my shoulders (broad) and boobs (erm...ample) but once its past that zone it slides down like a dream (that sounds like I'm auditioning for a certain type of film. sorry!) . I bought it for work but the cleavage on show prohibits this - I work in a school...for boys. No worries though it is already a firm favourite. Anyway both times I've worn it its done the trick as far as compliments go and has remained comfortable all night. As usual I wish I'd bought two...a definite staple. I love it! Well done, team!

Everyone needs this little black dress!
11th April 2013

I gave this dress top marks for quality and style. Everyone needs a little black dress and this is it! Can be dressed up or down and its double layer gives this dress good structure. The only negative would be that it falls on the small side and I'd suggest going up a size.

High Hopes
6th April 2013

Based on other reviews, I ordered the Jessica dress, US10. I have an hourglass figure, am 5'6", but could not pull off the dress. The dress showed my bulges and did not "hold" me in as I had hoped. And, it was too long for me. I've had much better luck with Baukjen's other jersey fitted dresses with ruching on the sides.

beautiful dress
6th April 2013

This is a lovely dress if you have the curvy sllhouette for it! Great quality heavy jersey which would hold in any little bumps and conceal underwear lines for a smooth look. Unfortunately, while I am slim, I do not have a very curvy sillhouette so I just ended up looking like a smarties tube in black! So, unfortunately it had to go back:-(

Nice dress, runs small, terrible delivery
4th April 2013

I would recommend the next size.I am normally size 6 but even size 8 was quite tight. I exchange the size 6 for a size 8 and to my dismay they sent me a dress that was dirty...obviously worn or tried before. There were numerous white stripes on the dress Disgusting. This is the reason I rate the product 2. I am sorry I did not take a picture of the product before I washed it.

21st March 2013

Not having quite the dream figure I ordered this in the sale purely based on the raving customer reviews. I sized up (normally 12), which was a good thing, and must say I love the dress! It did have to go straight to the tailor as the length is awful on me, but I can;t wait to have it back and wear it

amazing dress!
10th March 2013

Alhough this dress is quite expensive it's definitely worth it! It makes me feel really slim and sexy - the length and cut is really flattering. I sized up having read the reviews - am usually a 10 but the 12 in this dress is a really comfy fit. Would recommend a decent hold-it-all-in slip to smooth over lumps and bumps.

24th February 2013

New favorite LBD!
17th February 2013

I had some delivery problems in the States with this item but eventually got one as a present. The double layer makes it more flattering than a conventional body hugging dress. It's a lovely versatile piece that's going to be in my closet for a long time. The slight cleavage showing might not be suitable for conservative work places but there are so many ways to play with it. I do find that it rides up a bit when I walk around.

Perfect black dress
14th February 2013

For work, casual, drinks etc. love it. Fits comfortably, true to size, and extremely flattering over problem areas.

Love this dress
12th February 2013

Was a little nervous about buying a close fitting jersey dress, thinking I might not feel comfortable. Really glad I did, it's stylish, comfy and I wear with a pretty floaty shirt over the top so it looks really different. Glad I got the 8, the 6 probably not as comfy even though I'm a 6 in all the non-jersey dresses.

Perfect black dress!
31st January 2013

I love this dress! Its the perfect proportions and is very comfortable. Literally don't have a bad thing to say about it!

22nd January 2013

I waited so long for this dress & it is way too small. Can't believe it is an 8 which is what I always wear. Now I have to send it back - so bummed!

Classy classic
4th January 2013

Love this dress - it's a lovely classic style and very classy looking - grown up sexy! I didn't feel like I was revealing too much of anywhere; with a decent neckline that isn't too low and a length of just below knee level, but still sexy due to being very figure hugging. It is more figure hugging than I would usually wear so the 10 was WAY too tight so re-orderd the 12 (usually a 10 to 12, but often a 10 in dresses) which was perfect. I didn't find the double layer too hard to get into as other have mentioned but felt well held in!

The perfect dress
2nd January 2013

The positive reviews on this dress are all correct. I received it today and couldn't be happier with the purchase. The double layer is genius, it smooths all lumps and bumps and is very figure flattering. The fabric is so soft, it's truly comfortable and a joy to wear. I LOVE the v-neck. That's unusual in a sheath dress and helps elongate the neck and body overall. I would buy this dress in other colors, it's that versatile.

Gorgeous and very sexy
2nd January 2013

I love this dress and received some great comments from family and friends over Xmas.

Very Flattering dress
2nd January 2013

The material in this dress hides the lumps and bumps beautifully. I'm a size 14 with big boobs and it makes me look a size smaller, lovely length, sexy - can wear it in day for office wear, or dress it up with heels for a night out. I wish they did others colours as I would buy more.

best value black dress ever
28th December 2012

this dress is comfortable, stylish and makes me look like a voluptuous stick insect - what's not to like. The usual prompt and great service for IO too.

fit for any occasion
26th December 2012

This is a gorgeous dress but it does come up a bit small. The spanx will definitely need to be worn underneath! However, the stretch means that it is comfortable to wear and holds me in. No carbs before 'Jessica' though!

Great dress
24th December 2012

A flattering lbd that can be tailored to a variety of looks and occasions.

Effortless style
20th December 2012

A fantastic dress that is comfortable to wear and made of reassuringly substantial material (no flimsiness here) so that it clings to all the right places. I went for my usual size (12) and it fitted perfectly.

20th December 2012

Really flattering and true to size. I have a few lumps and bumps but this dress is so forgiving!

Simply perfect!!
18th December 2012

Easy to wear, great material, and very stylish...simply perfect

Perfect dress
8th December 2012

This is yet another Baukjen winner! It is super comfy & stylish and the material is really soft. Baukjen - I would love more colours please (electric blue and red)!

6th December 2012

My mum got this dress and I loved it on her - she has ample bosom whereas I am sadly lacking in that department! I didn't think it would do anything for me. But when an offer came up, I thought I'd try it. So glad I did. I got the 10 first but had to send back for an 8 to get a better fit on the top half. It is so comfortable but sexy and hugs in all the right places. I.m very excited to wear it next week for husband's work do with platform suede heels and the metallic skinny belt. It will be such a useful dress though. Well done Baukjen, I am loving your range this season!

Stunning & versatile!
4th December 2012

I love Baukjen dresses (currently wearing wrap dress as I write!) and the Jessica dress is no exception; it looks v plain when you get it out of the box, but it is VERY flattering once on. I don't find it as low-cut as other reviewers and I would say this is true to size (I'm a size 10, normally get a size 8 in Baukjen, but needed the size 10 for the Jessica dress). It makes the best canvas for acccessories, can be dressed up or down and is perfect for work or play. Stunning. Thank you, Baukjen!

The Ultimate LBD
3rd December 2012

This is a wardrobe essential. Wear it with boots, heels or sandals, all look equally as good. It is a little snug fitting and can be a bit of a struggle to get into but worth the effort as it holds you in which is essential with such a close fitting dress and its comfortable too. I have worn it dozens of times already and it is well worth its price. Highly recommend.

21st November 2012

Simple dress which could be happily worn on any occasion. Thick, double layers helps to hold in any lumps and bumps.After reading the other reviews I did size up, it seems to come up fairly small.

14th November 2012

This dress is so well named - because you'll look like Jessica Rabbit in it! This is my fifth IO dress, but the other four are wraps and extremely flattering. I wasn't expecting this one to be so forgiving due to its fitted nature, but I needn't have worried. The double-layered heavy weight jersey hangs beautifully, even on my un-model like figure. I'm 5'3" and have put on weight recently so I've just gone up to a size 14, which has left me feeling a bit down. However, this dress gives me back my va-va-voom and due to the high elastane content I think it will still fit and look good even when I've lost a stone. At my height it falls a couple of inches below my knees so looks equally good with long boots or opaque tights and heeled courts. I can only reiterate what some previous reviewers have said: MORE COLOURS PLEASE! (Start with Cobalt Blue, French Navy, and a vivid purple, and then maybe a strawberry pink for the summer - I'd order them all!). Well done Baukjen!

Best Dress Ever!!!
11th November 2012

This dress is a must in any girls wardrobe, the material feels lovely and isn't going to crease. You can have it 2 lengths, pull it straight and it is beneath your knee or a little ruche and its above your knee. Holds me in the right places. I am sometimes a 12 and sometimes a 14, ordered in a 14 and glad i did, it is a great fit so if you are in-between sizes i would go up rather than down! x

Love this dress
9th November 2012

This is a great dress. I am 5 ft 2 and a size 6 and it fits perfectly although I do have to wear a vest top underneath for work as the v neck shows too much cleavage for work. Looks good with or without a skinny belt, and is a good length. Overall, a good buy especially with the discount

Fab Dress
2nd November 2012

I am not a model (I bought a size 14) and I find this dress totally comfortable and amazingly flattering. It is perfect for dressing up or wearing to work and I have been showered with complements in it.

Best LBD
23rd October 2012

This is the third Baukjen jersey dress I've bought and they continue to be the most flattering dresses I possess. The double layer jersey helps to hold you in and disguise the odd lump and bump. Yes it is figure hugging, but that's what gives you va va voom!! You can dress this up/down, layer it or wear it simply with skinny belt and heels. Ladies this is a dress you shouldn't be without (got rave reviews from my husband too!)

Not like the other dresses
19th October 2012

Whilst the dress is undoubtedly a classic style, unless you are stick thin with no curves it's not the most flattering. I have a couple of the other ruched dresses which are better by far. Sorry to say mine is going to have to go back.

very pleased
18th October 2012

Good quality material, great fit and length- very flattering. Comfortable and so easy to wear with boots or heals. Also versatile- simple elegant with a belt, glam up with jewellery or layer for a more casuals look. Ill get a lot of use out of this one please make it in red (and camel would look great too!).

Very tight!
16th October 2012

I've been ordering IO and B dresses for a while now. I am a fan, but.... I just notice that sizes can be all over the place. This dress is definitely very tight! While in the same order, another B dress in size 10 was quite loose. So: I would order a size up if I were you!

Great day to evening dress
15th October 2012

Double layer jersey contributes to the great fit of this dress, I should have gone up a size but apart from that would highly recommend this.

Very flattering
11th October 2012

This is my first Baukjen dress and I love it. It is so flattering - fit, length and style. I particularly like the V neck. It is very versatile and can be worn as is or with a belt or waistcoat etc. It might be nice to see it in other colours too.

Sexy, classy dress
10th October 2012

I really wasn't sure about getting this dress, but I'm so glad with it. It's a little more hugging on me than the picture but that's becuase I have a curvier shape. Saying that it's very understated and I recieved a lot of compliments wearing it with a fitted black blazer and killer black heels. It has a secret "support" lining which is very comfortable. A wardrobe staple.

too hot to trot
5th October 2012

wow wow WOW. Amazing. I have never felt so gorgeous in a dress; it is so flattering, so classy, so ladylike and sooo foxy. The modest length compliments the V-neck. I have worn it with my summer sandals and will wear it in winter with stockings and courts. It is perfect.

Classy but....
2nd October 2012

I love this dress, it's timeless and a perfect length however I really struggled to get it on and off and have therefore sent it back. Once it's on it fits really well and it's quite slimming as it holds you in, in essence this is a beautifully made dress but the difficulty of the 'on & off' put me off keeping it.

V neck!
28th September 2012

The model looks stunning and I was really looking forward to wearing this dress. However, the neckline is V-shape and I thought it was more of a scoop neck which suits me better so unfortunately it has been returned, Great length though :)

27th September 2012

This dress great, it instantly makes you feel sexy it is figure hugging but don't let that put you off as it seems to hold you in due to the inner layer and is so comfortable, I will have years of wear from it due to the classic style, can wear day or night.

Great dress
21st September 2012

This is a fab dress. Good fabric - the double layering gives it some substance. I am a size 6 and this size was good fit - a little loose around the waist but that didnt matter in this style as you can disguise it well by ruching it up/down around the waist/hips. Please please make this dress in more colours! Also please do more of your styles in size 6 - its so hard for us small build girls to get clothes that dont swamp us!

3rd September 2012

A classically shaped dress - supremely comfortable and also stylish. One of those feel good dresses! It is also a very heavy good quality jersey - I love it !!

This is "The Dress"!
16th August 2012

I have loved Isabella Oliver for a long time now. Beginning with pregnancy and now beyond. Your pieces are my favorites! I invest quite a bit of money on my wardrobe, a bit of a fashionista, and I simply love the quality and stylishness of every IO piece. This dress is my all time favorite. True to size, great double layer for pulling you in and absolutely on trend with the v neck and 3/4 length sleeve! Must have more colors!
