    Great simple dress
    I bought this dress in two colours: black and navy in my pre-pregnancy size US 8. Both fit perfectly at 26 weeks. Navy is slightly smaller around the hips which doesn't bother me, because it has a lot of stretch. Ruching is only at the front panel of the dress (on the sides), unlike the tank bodycon dresses from Seraphine (font and back panels are gathered). The tank dresses are so generously ruched they will fit until the due date. This shift dress might be a little tight at the end. I can't be sure, so time wil tell. Otherwise, great fitting and comfortable dress. I wear it to work with 100 denier maternity tights from Seraphine and I feel very cozy. Great purchase like all jersey dresses I ordered from this website. The shipping was very quick - 24-48 hours from UK to Canada. I'm impressed with the products and service.

    Maternity must have!
    This dress is perfect for work. It’s very soft material and super comfy. It’s also flattering in black and with the ruched sides. I’d definitely recommend it!
    Review by RebeccaP
    Most useful item of maternity wear I own
    LOVE this dress so much. I’ve had so many complements. I’m 6 months gone with number 2 and it’s super flattering. Really useful too as you can dress it up with heels and a good necklace for the evening, or shove a jumper and some trainers on for a more relaxed weekend look. Totally recommended.

    Great dress
    This dress is my favourite dress from all maternity ones I have. I would like to have another one in a different colour, but the burgundy one is out of stock! Please make more colours!!

    Love it!
    This dress is amazing! Fits like a glove. I am 8 months pregnant and ordered a Small, and it makes me look and feel sexy. Very stretchy, good quality, comfy to wear.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    This is a fabulous dress and is an essential item in my wardrobe! I bought my pre-pregnancy size and it fits perfectly and is very flattering. Looks graet with leggings and flats, tights and heels or ruched up with jeans. A wardrobe staple!!
