Hi - am buying a dress from IO. Anyone know how accurate their sizes are? I am usually a standard size 10 - their website says this would equate to a size 2 but I have heard they can be rather generous. Anyone else foudn this? Thanks!

Hi - i have bought a few things from IO, i am also a size 10 and have found their size 2 to be ideal (The size 1 is def too small). Depending on your bump size, some things maybe a bit baggy around your bump initially but a) you soon grow into them and b) cause the clothes are ruched/wraps it doesnt notice as much.

Hope this helps

I'm normally size 8-10 & found size two a bit big. Decided to keep it (a dress) as thought i wld grow into it... this was about 5 mths ... but each time i have put it on, have just thought NO - still too big.

Am now 34 wks & summer dress season finishing fast so think will try & sell on ebay instead.

I bought size 3 and I was 16-18 and it was generous but would assume size 2 far too small. I bought mine 2nd hand on e-bay in original box worn once! Couldnt justify spending that kinda money new.

Silly question: is there an actual IO store or just online?

Are the dresses quite long?

Glad someone asked this question ...I'm confused though - I was a size 12, now I think 12-14 on bottom half. Should I go for 2 or 3? According to the info online, I should be a 3. But if 3 is generous for a size 16-18, then that sounds too big. But I'm definitely bigger than a size 10 - so would that make a 2 too small? Looking at skirts and pants rather than tops.

It doesn't look like there is a store just online roary.
