I already have one and now I have another-brilliant dress. I love it!

28th February 2019

Very flattering but tight!

Beautiful dress. True to size or maybe a tad on the slim side. Washes well.

1st February 2018

True to size. Could have sized up for the looser look as depicted by model with drapey v-neck. Minus 1 star since I really wanted the floral print first but had to settle for solid due to shipping error.

28th January 2018

I just did this. I wrote it on the previous page

24th November 2017

Fantastic quality. Lovely colour. Very flattering fit. Sleeves just slightly too short but love the dress

12th November 2017

I love the Darton dress. The double thickness makes it a great fit. It can be worn form office to bar. Just dress it up with jewellery. Brilliant.

8th November 2017

Wonderful fabric hangs and hugs in just the right places. Stunning colour. Fabulous evening drinks and dinner dress.

31st October 2017

Love this dress! I now own it in black, blue and winter cherry. It’s really flattering and the full sleeve is perfect - never understand why dresses or jumpers come in 3/4 sleeves! One star withheld due to length as I’ve had to shorten all dresses by 4“ so they sit on the knee rather than mid-calf, which is not a flattering look. I’m 5‘2“ and weigh 56Kg

23rd October 2017

I have this dress in a few colours and absolutely love it. The colour and fabric is very elegant and the double lining makes this dress a superb buy.

17th August 2017

sending the dress back as the style did not suit me.

3rd August 2017

Fabulous, hide a multitude of sins!

2nd August 2017

Flattering dress. Great colour. Sizing a little on the generous size. Quality fabric.

20th July 2017

Lovely weighted material, quality feel good dress. Not worn out yet as long sleeved, but waiting to pounce in wardrobe when slightly cooler evenings call !

7th July 2017

Soft, quality jersey dress in a longer length which is great for me.

21st June 2017

Really love the colour, classic styling with a brilliant colour pop. Perfect fit for me (5'11"), quality fabric and stretch really good.

25th May 2017


23rd May 2017

love this dress flattering and very smart Just a little long for me but not a problem

11th May 2017

This is a lovely dress and I have it in other colours, but this one is too small, when it is exactly the same size as the others I have. The fitting is inconsistent with Baukjen.

29th April 2017

Fab colour and, as usual, great quality. The ruching allows for adjustment of fabric over not-so-perfect parts of the body. It's fitted but that's good, I wear this with a cardigan and either flats or heels for work. I think a size up would also fit, but slightly less snug - but I'm on the large side of 12. Carries you nicely through into the evening.

24th April 2017

Wow, what a dress. It's extremely figure hugging and sexy without looking cheap and tarty. This is due to the double thickness of the material,longer length and long sleeves. I'm wearing mine to a 40th party with nude heels but could also see myself at work with it on. Dont be put off by the length if you're not tall ( I'm 5ft 10 and it's perfect) it would be worth having it taken up or quite frankly it would look fantastic midi length with heels.If you want to exude sassy sophistication , this is the dress for you.

19th April 2017

I've not worn the dress yet but plan to wear it to work.It's a really good fit and comfortable. I love the fit it's so comfortable. I would recommend this dress.

16th April 2017

Really nice and stylish cut. Great for work

5th March 2017

Lovely dress. Perfect for work or an evening out.

3rd March 2017

Great fabric and on trend colour. Very flattering for the hour glass figure.

2nd March 2017

I wear this for work

9th November 2016

I have worn this dress out to dinner and was complemented on how smart and elegant my dress was ! Will definitely buy more from this range of clothing!

26th September 2016

Beautiful colour and perfect fit. very flattering.

15th September 2016

Good quality dress, looking forward to wearing it in the autumn. It is unexpectedly a bit longer than some of the other dresses which might not suit but was OK for me at 5ft 3".

13th September 2016

I have this dress in a number of colours - is a work wardrobe staple. The fit is perfect and it drapes in just the right places. Beautiful additionto the collection.

6th September 2016

A very smart dress that I plan to wear to a wedding, jazzed up with red accessories.

21st August 2016

As I said with with the black version, I like the dress very much but it's quite long and will have to have it taken up. Please can you consider 'normal' height ladies or offer short, regular and long length?

21st August 2016

I have yet to wear the dress, but am looking forward to doing so. I am 5ft 5' and usually a size 8-10, so opted for the 8 due to the stretchy material. Its quite tight but as the material is thick, I am happy with the fit. My only issue is with the length of the dress. I am not tall, but I am not tiny either and this dress is very long - and as it is long and quite tight, it's a bit difficult to walk when it falls below the knee. I find it useful when companies put the model's height and size they are wearing to help gauge the fit, but this is not present on Baukjen's site. I will have the dress taken up.

15th June 2016

Wore this with a lot of accessories to a black tie do - I love it

8th May 2016

Beautiful dress great fit im a size 12 , very flattering recieved many positive comments about dress during function it was purchased for .

19th April 2016

Super dress

31st March 2016

Havent had a chance to wear it yet - but although the first dress delivered was too tight I liked the style and quality

25th March 2016

Lovely quality. Vibrant colour.

10th March 2016

Superb dress

7th March 2016

The red is just s but too vibrant but everything else about this dress is a star.

6th March 2016

Very stylish

5th March 2016

The perfect dress to go from office to out for dinner! The jersey is thick enough to cover a few 'bumps' but not too thick that it is bulky! Love it! Please add more colours for a Spring Colour palette!

18th February 2016

Great slimming dress for all occassions!!!!!

18th February 2016

Love this dress . Great for business or socialising

7th February 2016

I bought this dress for work. It is a great and stylish fit, incredibly good quality jersey, and makes me feel both professional and that I am showing myself off to my best possible advantage.Note that Baukjen do not do vanity sizing, so place close attention to the sizing chart - I would equate it as closer to dressmakers sizing. I'm pretty much a standard 12 everywhere else but here I am a 14, and it's a close fitting 14. If you want a bit of room you may wish to size up.

6th February 2016

Gorgeous colour

3rd February 2016

returning this item as far too difficult to get on and off!

2nd February 2016

I have worn this dress twice its very flattering. I'm a curvy size 12 and its snug but not too tight. The colour is very uplifting and works well with my dark hair and pale skin - many compliments from both sexes.

2nd February 2016

Beautiful fabric

2nd February 2016

Wore to a family party - got some great compliments. Lovely quality material and great fit - love this dress!

31st January 2016

Wore this to a night at the theatre - heels & some jewellery. Fab

28th January 2016

Lovely dress have worn it for both day and evening.

26th January 2016

Great to wear at work- feels wonderful and looks fab!

18th January 2016

I've worn this to work and out for dinner - very versatile and very flattering

14th January 2016

Beautiful dress very flattering but a little long for me so I got it shortened. Please could you consider different lengths for us shorter ladies? The color is amazing please can we have more items in this colour?

13th January 2016

I mainly wear the dress for work but also accessorise for a night out.

10th January 2016

I've worn it to work.

7th January 2016

As described but being ultra critical would prefer less elastacene and more cotton ratio!

6th January 2016

Excellent work dress - very appropriate and sleek neckline. I wear mine with a standing collar suit jacket in the office, which I leave behind to go out in the evening. I have received numerous compliments on the dress from colleagues.

5th January 2016

I have this dress in black and have longed for a version in a stylish colour so I was delighted to see the Darton dress in the collection. I was not disappointed. It is fitted around the waist and flatters an hour-glass shape yet comfortable and easy to work in. Love love love

4th January 2016

Day to night dress. Fabulous fit. Don't be shy in this dress - super close fit but excellent fabric disguises the odd body bump we don't like but incredibly forgiving thanks to the clever rushing and super fabric.

4th January 2016

This dress is polished and professional, but a bit too clingy.

4th January 2016

Gorgeous dress and colour...but my shape and few lumps and bumps were tricky to hide. With regret it went back. Would love the same colour in a top.

30th December 2015

great colourgood heavy jerseytoo clingy for my liking, fold are not falling necessarily advantageousonly wear if your curves and confidence match

29th December 2015

Worn to an evening dinner, great comfort. Recommended to another women diner who asked where I got it. Told her of course!

29th December 2015

Just gorgeous.

21st December 2015

I wore this dress to our work Christmas party and received numerous compliments... everyone wanted to know where I had purchased the dress and so I told them BAUKJEN!!

19th December 2015

Fabulous dress very feminine & makes u feel a million dollars from the minute u put it on.

18th December 2015

Dress is great.

16th December 2015

Excellent all round

16th December 2015

I'm six months post pregnancy with twins, so I still have a bit of a tummy. I'm 5'6", 155lbs and purchased a 10US. I've purchased many dresses from Baukjen pre-pregnancy and always felt confident. I was a little concerned about how I would look in this form fitting style at a larger size, but I feel great. The double layer of fabric holds you in and the gathers at the side help disguise my stomach. I can't wait to wear it to the holiday party.

16th December 2015

Wore to work and on to drinks. Lots of compliments day to evening. I love this dress.

15th December 2015

A really great versatile dress, which could be worn to any number of occasions. The double layers of jersey on the skirt really help to hold your tummy in.The only difficulty I had was in actually getting the dress on because of the wrap over front, so I would not want to be in any hurry if I was about to wear it!

2nd December 2015

The dress is lovely, a good weight jersey. i am normally a 14 but bought 16 and it is very comfortable. Looks smart on

1st December 2015

The dress was the perfect red colour (like a ripe tomato). The material a lovely weighted jersey (without being too thick). Gave a lovely silhouette and fit perfectly ... except for the length. It was too long and therefore I had to return it. (This typically doesn't happen to me as I am 5' 7")

24th November 2015

Have not worn it yet Xmas day dress loved it

14th October 2015

I have this dress in black and absolutely love it but the fit just didn't work for me in red so I've returned it.

26th September 2015

Versatile piece appropriate for day or evening. Can be dressed up or down.

25th September 2015

I have worn to dinner parties ,concerts, and I m wearing the red to a wedding next week .

24th September 2015

Excellent quality and a very good look. I've baught red. It will be a perfect evening dress if worn alone and a business dress if worn with black jacket or cardigan.

22nd September 2015

Beautifully styled and good fit.

21st September 2015

So far worn for work, on a day when I had to look super stylish but needed to be comfortable at the same time; ticked both boxes nicely. First colleague who saw me immediately complimented me. Looking forward to wearing out for an evening as well with some great jewellery.

21st September 2015

Worn to work/ as day-to-evening dress. Good quality heavy jersey fabric, flattering cut without being too exposing for work.

21st September 2015

This is a flattering, fitted dress I bought for work, I like the style as it makes you look good withough flaunting yourself

10th September 2015

Lovely dress, suitable for day and evening wear.

9th September 2015

I bought this dress for work. The fit and sizing was spot on.It is extremely comfortable and the fabric will transition between seasons and from day to evening wear.

4th September 2015

The response I got from my husband when trying this dress on was unprecedented! Can't wait to wear it.

27th August 2015

Great dress for work, once on I don't even have to think about it. Please do other colours!

25th August 2015

soft and comfy dress, looks both professional and sexy, love to wear it in office

21st August 2015

I've had so many complements wearing this dress. Double jersey material means it hides any, ahem, flaws and it's both sexy and work appropriate.

18th August 2015

lovely material, comfortable to wear, stylish suitable for day and night, however unfortunately too long for me! (5 ft 4)

15th May 2015

I liked the drss but the style didn't look right on me. It was much too long and needed high heels, which wouldn't be goid for me. Pity - it was comfy and stylish, which is an unusual muxture.

14th May 2015

Fantastic dress—very well made and fits like a glove. Sexy but very professional.

7th April 2015

Fabulous dress! Very comfortable and flattering. Perfect for day to evening.

18th March 2015

Excellent fit and style. Exactly what I was looking for.

18th February 2015

I wore the black dress yesterday to a funeral. It is well made and classy and double-layered, so is flattering despite it hugging my more-lumpy-than-I'd-like body. It will be a versatile dress I could wear on many different occasions.

17th February 2015

I love this dress. Wore it at work and got loads of complements. Figure hugging, but thanks to the neckline not too revealing. I bought my regular size and it was perfect.

26th January 2015

Beautifull dress, very figure hugging, beware of that when you order. I would recommend to go a size up. Very good quality of the dress and I love the double layer, which makes the dress sit perfect.

18th December 2014

Fantastic quality, cut and fit

24th November 2014

Disappointed with this dress. Very creased and because of the fabric and the pleating, it would not be easy to iron. Far too clingy if you are curvy.

29th October 2014

Great dress. I now have it in the black & taupe. I'm a curvy lady & feel very feminine when wearing it. Very flattering & get lots of comments. Especially off my husband so that's how I know most it's been a good purchase!! Ha!!
