    This is the best dress. I loved it so much I ordered the navy blue and then ordered another one in pink. The fit is perfect. The length is perfect. I am average height. I ordered a size 14R. It would work great with a sweater or blazer on chilly days and the fabric is not clingy. Also, the dress is lined so that was an extra bonus. I love lined dresses. Wonderful quality. Love you Boden!!!

      This is a perfect dress for my work - can wear it in my casual office and it the offices of clients that have more conservative dress code. Love the collar - it's a great detail without being to "cutesy". The shape is great, and the weight is perfect for multi-season wear.

        I really like this Boden Dress as it combines style with comfort and has a unique peter pan collar design. I will wear it for work, church and possible for evening events.

          Looked so cute in the pictures. The top of the dress did not fit at all--managed to be too tight under the arms and too baggy in the front. Didn't work for me.

          I love everything with a peter pan collar, so was incredibly excited to order this dress. When it arrived, I was disappointing that it did not flatter my body type (slim, strait). It was the correct size in terms of the bust/torso but bagged out a bit too much below my waist. Looked more matronly than I would like for a 27-year-old. That said, it is well made (LOVED the thick material) and would likely look better on someone with more curves and smaller calves (my calves are muscular and this length just did not flatter).

              I loved this dress when the Fall line came out and couldn't wait to order it. Well, I did wait until the sale, but I'm so glad I did. Its so cute. The cut is snug up top, nips in at the waist, and just skims my hips. Its hard to give up my addition to A-line dresses. They just work for me. I ordered the nave/magenta combo in 10L. I'm 5'8" and it stops just at my knees. Perfect for work.

                I took a gamble and ordered this in the magenta. I love color but that's not one I usually wear. It was a big WIN.

                I wore the dress the morning after it arrived for an event at church, then again to work that week. I collected at least 6 compliments from those two occasions alone.

                This dress looks and feels great on.
                The color is lively but not over the top. The shape shows off my curves. The fabric has stretch but is substantial and holds its shape well. It did not look stretched out even after a day of sitting at a desk. The tailored shape meant I looked polished and professional but the knit fabric was comfortable.

                So comfortable in fact, that when I got home from work and was puttering around the house with my kids and had to remind myself I was still in the dress and should change.

                Johnny Boden please make more dresses with this fabric and shape but with different necklines. I'll buy them all. It was perfect in my opinion.

                    This dress is another instant favorite of mine! It's true to size and is incredibly well-made. The cut is very flattering on me; I tend to be larger on the bottom than on the top. The Peter Pan collar adds a touch of fun to a classic black dress.
