Too big

    I'm usually a 4 in Boden dresses, but the 4 was too big in the bust and hips. This is a structured dress, so a poor fit won't work. Didn't find the taupe color flattering enough on my pale complexion to get it tailored. Would be a great dress to wear to a wedding.

    Love This Dress!

      I bought this dress in blue to wear to a couple of upcoming weddings. It's hard to find more formal pieces that are made of cotton, so I took a shot with this dress. I am glad I did! It's beautiful in person (the pictures are accurate) and formal enough to wear to a wedding. I am 5' 6" and weigh approx. 120 lbs. I bought a 4L. I have a pretty straight body shape and the bottom half is somewhat snug. I think women that have more shape in the hips may find this dress too tight. The Long length hits me just above the knee. I am a B cup, and I don't quite fill out the bust of this dress. I think it would be perfect for ladies with a C or D cup. The fabric doesn't have much give, so if you have a bigger bust, this dress may not work for you.

        Love this little dress. Makes me feel so pretty when I wear it. I have gotten many compliments on it. Fabric is nice and the color brown is so becoming, I am 5ft. 3in. and weigh 128Ibs. I bought the 8L and the fit is perfect. Keep them

        This dress was so pretty I thought about taking it to a tailor to have it reconstructed but in the end decided to return it for someone else to enjoy instead. It was a combination of too big on top and too tight on the bottom. I'm 5'8", 140lbs, 34A and curvier on the bottom. I bought a 6R. I think this dress would work best on someone with a boyish figure and I wish that was me because the blue was gorgeous and the embroidery was perfect!

        Too tight, too big

        It's rare a Boden dress I choose for myself looks as bad as this on did on me. I am big-chested, and I felt strapped down by the top half, and the bottom half was shaped in such a way as to make me look huge in my hips and thighs. While it otherwise had the expected Boden quality, this dress was a disaster!

          Very tight around waist line

            Best Uses

              I ordered other dresses in size 8 from Boden and they've been a perfect fit. But a size 8 in this dress was too tight around the waist line, which actually at my rib cage. I'm 5'8 so it's possible that the dress was sized for someone shorter, which is a shame since the dress fit otherwise.

                I ordered the blue and brown and will keep both but had to get the hem taken out in both because they were both really short. I am 5'4, 130 lbs and ordered the six regular. you might want to go long on this one.

                  Cut is perfect, with slightly rounded waist to skim curves. Great style for a tall slim figure.
