Bought in red. Excellent quality, very flattering. Cut of dress would suit most shapes and sizes. Very comfortable to wear.\nHave worn out to restaurant and to party.

13th May 2014

Very nice dress, but obviuosly not for small-busted women, so I had to had mine taken in a bit at the tailor. Brilliant colour, really love how Baukjen works with new colours every season, always coming up with new must-have items!

A lovely dress

9th January 2014

Great fit, feel very comfortable and stylish in this dress, love it! Good for work with a black jacket or jazzed up with chunky jewellery for evening wear.

9th January 2014

This dress is very flattering and I found that a size smaller than normal works best. It is very comfortable and stylish and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. I love it!

7th January 2014

Wonderful dress. Really well made, double layered so holds you in! Fit is true to size, I originally ordered a size up based on previous reviews but found it too large. Exchanged for usual size, fits perfectly. The dress is really versatile, great for both work and going out, can be dressed up or down. Very happy with it!

7th January 2014

Very flattering.

fantastic dress very comfortable to wear

20th December 2013

Not worn yet but looking forward to wearing it soon!

20th December 2013

Have had a lot of compliments. A very flattering dress.

20th December 2013

I already had the blue version of this dress and loved it so much I went back for another colour. The ruching hides a multitude of sins. The material is quite heavy which I think adds to the appeal and the finished look.

19th December 2013

I use it for everyday activities

19th December 2013

Incredibly flattering. I'm an hourglass shape and was skeptical that this style would suit me... but it is brilliant and so versatile. Another great item from Baukjen.

19th December 2013

I love this dress it is so flattering and simply perfect. I would buy it in different colours if they were available - how about grey?

19th December 2013

Not for me, it went back.

quite old fashioned
12th August 2013

this dress is seriously comfortable and very flattering but it is quite long (or at least it was on me and im 5ft6") and all the ruffle details makes it look old fashioned and a bit strange imo. pity

Fab dress
8th July 2013

I bought this in 3 colours I love it so much, black, cobalt blue and wine. I'm size 13 and both the 12 and 14 fitted, but went for 12 in the end as I like tight fitting dresses, but if you prefer slightly more room go for a 14. I'm just over 5ft 9 and it sits just above my knee, perfect length for me. Washes great and they don't need ironing, although takes ages to dry (2 days min) because of the double layer fabric, especially around the rouching at the sides. That is the only downside.

Magic Dress
11th June 2013

I have two colours of the Classic Wrap dress but decided I needed a new LBD in this flattering style. I usually wouldn't wear black at a wedding but will accessorise with pale pink. This dress is a knockout and 'the Girls' at Baukjen helped me order the right size based on my description of how the wrap fitted. And, clever me, I ordered online from California & it arrived the same time I got home. Great work, Baukjen folks!

Lives up to expectations...
29th May 2013

I ordered this great dress in Black Size 16 for a special occasion. It's a quality garment. I just wish I had ordered the size smaller for a little more clingy sexiness... didn't have time to change it before the event. It's the kind of dress you can put on, feel great and forget about it. Wish I could say the same about my hold up stockings - turned out I'd opened a box of non hold up stockings by mistake and had to make a last minute detour to Tescos for some tights as the stockings slipped slowly down my legs! At the wrong time... lol

Gorgeous dress
29th May 2013

I bought another designer dress for a special family occasion but when I put it on, I looked like a sack of potatoes! So I thought I would take a chance on this dress and bought the bright pink. I transformed from a sack of potatoes to a confident, dare I say sexy, woman! So I went back and bought it in black for a black tie event to wear with a statement necklace. There is no point trawling around for something inferior and more expensive. Get it. No matter what your size. You won't be disappointed. On second thoughts, don't. I would prefer to keep this secret to myself!!

Beautiful dress and colour
21st May 2013

Very comfortable and simply stylish. The colour is more strawberry than raspberry. Raspberry (more pink) melange would also be nice to have...

Lucky Me!
1st May 2013

I have stalked this dress for well over 3 years and finally bought it (wine) in the sale last month! I am a US 14 and it fits true to size. The doubling of the fabric does pull one in - depending on how much needs restriction Iʻd also suggest a set of Spanx! With that said, the cut/style of this dress drew praise from both family and co-workers alike. I can see how a lighter color might prove unflattering on a curvy figure such as mine - I will stalk this style in black on a future sale. Bottom line: get it!

Love the dress but not for me...
20th April 2013

I loved this dress in the black, but the pink is a whole different ballgame. I am, shall we say, curvy, and the pink version is just a bit loud to be accentuating the curves. It is a much brighter pink than the online photo shows - and even with a jacket or blazer would require more confidence to wear than I think I will ever have. So sadly I had to send it back!

Life saver
12th April 2013

This dress is FABULOUS! I was headed to London for a function and had a dry cleaning disaster with the dress I had intended to wear. Thankfully, this dress (in azure blue) landed on my doorstep that morning and I wore it to the function. So flattering, incredibly comfortable, I felt very glam and the compliments flowed!

I love these dresses
9th April 2013

I have quite a collection of this particular dress in a number of colours and they always look and feel amazing. More colours please for someone with strawberry blond hair - blue/grey/pink are not good. Would love a red or an olive green.

9th April 2013

Like the dress, it fits great and the colour is fabulous. I plan to buy another dress (or two) in other colour.

Jersey Drape Dress
6th April 2013

Excellent fit even for a rather short size 14! Fabric feels very substantial and holds in all the right places - definite hit. perfect for work or to dress up for evening.

Great dress
3rd March 2013

I absolutely love this dress. I purchased it for my son's baptism and felt great despite the fact that I had recently given birth to my third child in as many years. It was flattering and comfortable, and well suited for nursing if need be. I was a huge fan of Isabella Oliver throughout all of my pregnancies and Baukjen has proven to be equally stylish, flattering, comfortable and well made. The fit of this dress was true to size except that I found it ran a bit loose in the shoulder area. But overall this dress is excellent and I am sure I will get much use out of it.

Can't go wrong...
1st March 2013

This is my 3rd Baukjen dress, I got this style but sleeveless last summer and I love it. So I've invested in another. It's so comfortable, you almost forget how classy you look! Seriously, you really can't go wrong with this dress, in a muted colour it's office wear, a brighter colour with the right accessories and you have a wedding outfit. So versatile. Raspberry melange is quite a true red but with (obviously!) a slight melange which tones it down a little.

21st February 2013

After having a baby and needing to feel good in clothes. This dress when I first put it on made me feel wonderful even my partner who doesn't ever comment said I looked great, the fit and feeling of the dress are wonderful, I am still feeding my baby and this dress still allows me to do this. An excellent purchase.

Looks good
19th February 2013

Wasn't sure but will keep this - I think it will be a good addition to the work wardrobe. Better fit than the wrap dress

My favourite dress ever
14th February 2013

The style and fit of this dress is so amazing I've treated myself to two - but one was in the sale! It's the kind of dress you can wear even on a 'fat' day and feel really great.Love it!

Flattering and Versatile
12th February 2013

Love the style of this dress, it is very flattering, comfortable and so versatile - easy to dress up or dress down. I love being comfortable whilst feeling elegantly foxy; this dress makes me feel polished and stylish. I do however, have a slight niggle to report. The Pink Rose dress (my most recent purchase) whilst lovely is made from considerably lighter weight jersey than the other two dresses I have in this style (Azure and Electric Plum) which was a little disappointing - I like the feeling of security the thicker jersey bestows! As pink is possibly more of a summer shade perhaps this is why the fabric is lighter weight? Buy at least one of these dresses. You won't be disappointed!

Love the Dress but bit Pricey for Jersey!
6th February 2013

I have been shopping with Isabella Oliver since 2005 back when it was only Maternity Wear so I am a loyal customer and definately a Big Fan. As much as this dress is lovely and yes I own 2 colours! I find the price of these dresses on the expensive side considering they are just Jersey. £120+ post for Jersey is just too much hence why I only ever buy now in the Sales Sorry! I think the dresses are worth no more than £80 and considering online company would expect the dresses to be cheaper than a Jersey dress I could buy in a well known Department Store. BUT yes lovely fit and have the Va Va Voom factor! Will be keeping my eye on the sales!

Wearing it right now
6th February 2013

This is the best black dress ever - looks amazing and has the best ruching to flatter! I love that I can wear to work or out for drinks. Comfy enough to play with kids while wearing as well.

My favourite IO piece
1st February 2013

I bought this in the sale as I have so many IO dresses I needed a good excuse to purchase another. Got the pink rose which is gorgeous, the fit is excellent and at 5'11'' this is a great length, has a flattering fit, it gives my boyish figure the illusion of curves, and as always the fabric is quality. Out of all my IO dresses this is my favourite. Tempted to buy in another colour!

So good, I have it in 2 colours!
12th January 2013

Love this dress! I have a lot of Baukjen pieces - they fit well, look great, wash well...and this dress is no exception. I have this dress in this burgundy colour and also in grey, and I wear them a lot - its so easy to go from the office to a function in them and still feel comfortable and yet stylish. Thoroughly recommended!

Must have wardrobe staple!!
6th January 2013

Having lived in IO maternity clothes throughout my pregnancies I had to treat myself to something after the birth of my 2nd son. This dress is perfect, just like my favourite dresses when pregnant - the tank dress & the scoop neck long sleeve dress. They are all simple, flattering, elegant and can be dressed up or down, oh and super comfy. I found this one came up slightly big on top but not enough to return it. It's also great for nursing which came in very handy when I wore it for Christmas Dinner.

A dress for all occasions!
16th December 2012

I have been delighted with this dress! It is amazingly versatile and in only two weeks has been worn to a cocktail party and a wedding. I am a classic pear shape who would generally shy away from anything fitted but I feel so confident in this dress and have received a record number of compliments when wearing it. It is very easy to accesorize and the double lining keeps everything in place and comfortable. I can't wait to try a few other styles.

So flattering
18th November 2012

I treated myself to this dress hoping it would be something I can slip into for lots of different occasions. I was right. It is so flattering and well tailored I feel that I could wear it for almost any occasion, especially by changing accessories. I am a size 14 and have had two children so tend to reach for the control underwear if I'm normally wearing anything as slinky as this but I tried it on and it looked perfect on it's own. That's an achievement! It falls perfectly and I felt instantly sexy. I probably wouldn't wear it for work as i feel the ruching makes it a little dressy, but I think you could pull it off if you were comfortable in it. My style tends towards dressing down anyway. Thank you, much more than I would normally spend on myself but I feel sure I will wear it for years to come.

Perfect dress!
13th November 2012

Bought the drape dress in black - what a great dress, bought it for a couple of events and will change accessories/shoes. Very flattering, very versatile can have down above knees or ruched up to a bit higher on the leg. Love it!

excellent dress
18th October 2012

Beautiful colour and a very useful dress. Can be dressed up or down. True too size - well made Washed well

26th September 2012

Loved this dress on line, but it didn't fit me properly across the breasts. Had to send it back.

24th September 2012

Tue to size in my opinion , beautiful cut, lovely and soft,

very sexy dress
12th September 2012

i bought this in a size 14 but could have gone down to a 12 as the material is so stretchy. Lovely shape on and the wine colour is spot on for this autum.

Amazing dress
26th August 2012

Bought this in the stone colour and it is flipping fantastic. It's extremely flattering and just makes you feel amazing. A real confidence booster. I'm 5"2 and bought the size 6 although I'd say I was an 8 but it fits perfectly. I cannot recommend this dress enough - it would look good on anyone. Brilliant!!!

22nd August 2012

22nd August 2012

Such a beautiful dress, the electric blue is such a stunning colour. Spent a lot of the night checking my bra wasn't showing though, don't like to show off too much of my clevage. But liked it so much id probably even buy it in another colour!!

Favorite dress of all time
8th August 2012

I purchased this dress in the dove grey colour (SS12) and I have never gotten so many compliments on an outfit. I would also recommend going up a size, or if you are normally between a size 10/12 (as I am) then the 12 fits well. Even though the ruching and doubled fabric is flattering I still think you would need to be relatively slim to wear it as it is very fitted. But then it's the fitted quality of the dress that makes it so fabulous. Best money I ever spent!
