Nice style but...

Cons

    Best Uses

      I ordered the navy blue dress and loved the look of the lace fabric but the feel was very synthetic. One of the things I have always loved about Boden was that many of the clothes were made of natural materials; This dress felt as though there wasn't a natural thread in it. I could foresee being uncomfortable wearing it on a hot summer day, so it had to go back.

        Beautiful Dress. Unfortunately I ordered the wrong size. (I'm 5'9" and 145-150 and ordered the 10L. It was too big.) I returned it and opted for something different as the material definitely lends itself to Spring/Summer and I was looking for something for an Early Fall wedding in Newport, RI. Really beautiful and had I needed something else for summer would have definitely order the next size down. LOVE that Boden carries long sizes as everything hits in the right spot for my long torso.

          I ordered 7 Boden dresses and this was my favorite. It fit very well and is feminine and classy. I ordered it in tropical peach. The 4 regular fit me just right. I'm 5'3" and 119lbs.

            I loved this dress. It had to go back simply because my sizing was a little off when I ordered it, but it would have been a wardrobe staple. It was timeless, classic and versatile.

              What a wonderful dress. I ordered the navy in my usual Boden size. The fit is spot on and the cut is so flattering. It is appropriate for all sorts of purposes and occasions and very versatile.

              I am so pleased. Love!

              I purchased this dress in the blue eyelet. I LOVE it. It is so lightweight and comfortable, perfect for hot sticky DC days. The arm holes were a little big on me, so I plan to have them tailored, but otherwise a great and comfortable fit while still looking professional.

                This dress is gorgeous. The fabric is beautiful. I expected the fabric to be much heavier and stiffer than it is, it is actually very light moves easily.

                  I was so excited to receive this dress! Sadly, once I put it on I noticed that it wanted to "poof" at the hips. I smoothed down the fabric, took a few steps, and (like magic) it "poofed" again. It was such a pretty dress, but I knew the extra inches of hip span it give me meant I had to quickly box it up and send it back to Boden.

                    Such a disappointment! I ordered the yellow flower pattern and it is stunning. The dress itself is beautiful and the fabric is high quality. However, the fit is so strange. Arm holes are tight, and there is a lot of "poof" in the front of the tummy, which seems to be due to extra fabric. Also, the darts on the bust don't lay right. Sending this back. I am 5' 10" and slender, for reference.

                      Fit me to a T in my usual size 8. No sizing issues at all. I love it and highly recommend you try it if it appeals to you. The peach is lovely.
