    Kind of wish I'd returned this one

      I was really excited about this one. The cream colour is lovely, the hem is different and cute, and it just generally looks nice. However, the neckline is too high for my liking. I'm busty, so high necklines look unflattering on me. It's also a little shorter than my normal preference, but not too scandalous for work. I decided not to return it because my husband liked it, but I'm not sure I should've kept it. I look ok in it as long as I wear a jumper, but then the nice tab details are hidden.

      The dress itself is really nice, lightweight, and well made. It just might not work for you id you're big on top.

        I love the style of this dress, and was worried that the wool fabric would be too heavy, but it was lightweight and I liked the feel of it--not itchy at all. The only drawback for me was that the creamy color had a yellowish tint that I couldn't handle, plus there seemed to be tiny grease-type spot front and center. But it's a lovely dress if you like your cream color with a yellowish cast.

        A Bit Short For Work

        I bought this dress for work. For reference, I am 5'6", about 120 pounds. I bought the size 4 regular. I have been so excited to try this after reading all of the fabulous reviews, and snatched it up the second it was available in my size. Unfortunately, it was surprisingly short, at least 6-8 inches above the knee. Maybe I'll try it in the long if it becomes available.

          As usual this is a lovely, well-made dress from Boden that is perfect for work. I had wanted to purchase the ivory but only navy was available in my size. The navy is still nice and practical. Fits true to size (even being pregnant!) and barely wrinkled despite moving around all day. The tabs at the waist with the flounce at the hem are very figure flattering. Best of all, it has a back zipper so no more wriggling into dresses with side zippers!

          Classy tailored dress

            What a lovely dress! Looks like a well tailored classy piece on you but the bottom flare gives it a nice fun edge. Perfect for work and flatters the figure. I'm 5'4", 34C and a fairly balanced 135lbs. After reading the reviews, I sized down to a 6R from my typical Boden 8 and it was a perfect fit. The top bust area is "just" right on me as if it was tailored (there is no additional room so if you're bigger chested then will need to size up). Raising my arm is a bit constrained because the fabric doesn't give and because of the way the sleeve cap is shaped. But if I were to size up to 8, the rest of the dress wouldn't fit and I don't think the sleeves would have given much more room, it's just the design. The navy is a nice true navy and looks like a suit dress at work.

              A love of a dress. It is basic, but special because of the bias ruffle at the bottom and the tabs at the waist. Those additions make it unique. I got the navy and love wearing it. It can be very Classy with pearls or a flower. A sweater or jacket changes the look. This is a "go to" dress. It tailored and very well made. I feel like an "up town" girl in it. Nice dress.I got the 6L which places the hem at mid-knee. I am 5'6' for reference.

                This dress is simple and versatile -- could probably be dressed up or down. I got it in navy, and will be wearing it with a suit jacket for work, or without for a more casual day at the office.

                  I love this dress. It fit perfectly, has great coverage (which is so hard to find), and is a great weight for spring. I am 5' 2", 115 lbs, small-chested, and normally wear a Boden 4R. That is what I ordered here -- it made me look slim while still having some room to breathe, and it had a perfect length. for work.

                    I bought this dress in navy and it has a very classic look to it. With a pearl necklace I feel very Jackie O. The pleats at the bottom give the dress some style, compensating for a not as interesting top. My only complaint is that the side "tags"--not quite sure how to refer to them--offer added fabric in a place where I don't need it. The "tags" probably add some shape, but certainly don't cinch my waist. (Were I stick skinny like the model in the picture, I probably wouldn't think twice about it.) That said, the dress is very comfortable and were it tighter in the waist, probably wouldn't feel so comfy. All in all, it's a keeper.
