Awesome basic, easy to style up or down, I want all colours. Runs slightly large I consider myself an Au 8-10 so I bought one in 8 and one in 10, I prefer the 8. If you're inbetween sizes I would recommend sizing down.

Love the long length but could have been thicker.
7th May 2013

Great basic and I like this above other vests I've seen because it is cut to sit low and can be ruched up, which makes it much more versatile. I'd have preferred a double layer fabric, especially on the white though.

Not as good as the maternity essentials range
11th April 2013

I'm so disappointed with the bauken essential t's range compared to the maternity range. I've actually resorted to buying the maternity ruched range in a size smaller and absolutely love them! This feels just like a basic vest from h&m. I'm sure it washes a bit better but certainly not worth the price for me- sorry Baukjen!

Bought two; one faded, one bobbled
2nd March 2013

I bought this in the blush pink, it was a lovely colour when first worn but a few washes later the colour has faded and it can only be worn as an unseen layer under jumpers. Very disappointed as it was washed as per instructions with the correct powder. I also have it in black whilst this has not faded it has bobbled. I expected more for the price

Poor Quality
28th February 2013

Nice soft material but bobbled before washing after having worn a jumper over it twice. As other reviewers suggest, size is v generous. Normally a 10 but size 8 was still quite generous. Can't return it as I have worn it but wouldn't purchase again.

Nice top but poor quality for the price
14th February 2013

This top looked simple and elegant on and was very comfortable. Unfortunately it didn't wash well. Despite washing on a delicate 30 degree wash as recommended on the label, the fabric looked bobbly and tired after just three washes. For the price I expected more so not impressed.

Size probably generous but looks good as stretchy material to fit. Keeps very white with good few washes so far. Long length perfect for layering. Stylish look with my leggings and layers on top.

Good for layering, but too long?
1st October 2012

I think it's just a bit too long and if I tuck it in like the picture, it looks too bulky. So, it's ok and I will keep it. I like the straps though, not too thin or thick,

Perfect White Vest
3rd September 2012

These come up large so you need to size down. I'm an 8-10 and I purchased an 8, which was a perfect fit and not too tight. I've been looking around for ages for some basic white vests that are not too see-through, and don't become mishapen and baggy after washing a few times. This vest did not disappoint. Fabric is thick enough that your bra isn't on public display, and it washes really well. I layer this under the long line T and wear it over leggings or skinny jeans. Length means that it covers your bottom nicely. My only criticism is that it isn't available in a wider range of colours. Will be ordering more of these.
