Comfortable and versatile
This is a nice basic black maternity shift dress -- something you can dress up or down and wear pretty much anywhere. The fabric is very soft, which I like. I found that it runs slightly larger than the other Seraphine dresses I've tried in the top half of the dress. You can't tell from the pictures, but it has very subtle gathers at the waist to accommodate a growing belly. All in all, a very versatile, comfortable dress. Review by Sarah
great dress
I purchased this dress for work and has been my go to dress. It’s easy, comfy and perfect for the working mum to be and with a blazer it has worked so well. I am very pleased with this purchase

I am so thrilled about this dress. It is beautiful! Review by Love
Maternity staple.
This dress is stylish and very comfortable. True to size. Easy to pair with different belts, jackets, cardigans, and necklaces for different looks. I wear it to work at least once a week because it is my most comfortable piece of professional maternity clothes I own. I even paired it with a big red ribbon above my bump for a cute Christmas card photo. Review by Very Comforatable and Stylish
I bought this dress at 22 weeks and it has grown and expanded with me! I wear it with a plain black ribbon around empire line for work and with a sparkly belt for going out. It looks well with a scarf as neckline is plain. Bought in burgundy too. Highly recommend it! Review by Rachel
True to size
This is my first maternity dress, so wasn't sure how Seraphines sizes would measure. Ordered the dress in 10 & 12. I am normally a 10 in dotty p's and 10-12 in top shop/ warehouse. Size 10 is perfect, drapes beautifully and doesn't cling around the bum like some jersey dresses do. Really happy and looks great with the snakeskin belt too. Review by Becca
Lovely dress
Pre-pregnancy I wouldn't have chosen to wear something quite as figure-hugging as this, but since my bump properly appeared around the five-month mark, it's been a staple in my work wardrobe. The fit is good, it is figure-hugging, but so much better than many maternity dresses out there that just aren't especially flattering - highly recommended. Review by Cheryl A

Love love love this dress. Have to travel down to our London head office weekly and this dress is a staple choice. Last week I received a complement from a 50 year old man on the stairs; don't even know if he noticed I was pregnant!

Very flattering.

First maternity dress I have tried that did not go straight back! It's a very nice fit and will see a lot of wear in the next few months. I generally prefer natural materials, but the viscose elastane will be very low-maintenance, and it drapes well. Review by Erin
