    Better for non-tall, non-busty gals

    Love the design, disappointed in the fit - I'm 5'10" and busty, and even though I ordered one size up from my usual Boden size this made me look like I was trying to squeeze into a children's sweater (arms and body too short, too tight across the chest). So sad because I was really looking forward to a new cozy wool sweater this winter! It would look great on someone under 5'7" and a C cup or smaller.

    Boden, could you please add some tall sizes in tops and sweaters?

    Lovely top but wish it came in petite

    I love this top. Unfortunately, it's just too large for me. I usually wear a 2 petite in Boden. I have a very small chest, but I thought I'd give the 2 regular a shot. The shoulders are too large, and there is just too much fabric in the chest area. I was swimming in this top. I had to return it.

    I got it in Beetroot Statement Floral. I tried it on with a bunch of outfits, and I thought it was a beautiful, versatile top -- it dressed up a plain gray suit nicely, worked well with skinny jeans and complemented a navy blue pencil skirt perfectly. I really wish it fit me.

      LOVE these Boden Fair Isle sweaters! I bought my first one last year & wish I would've bought more before they sold out in my size. They came back with more in different colors this year so I was thrilled! Ordered 2 of the 3 colors, the navy & green. The colors are so vibrant and cheerful, just what you need in the gloom of fall/winter days. They are also very comfortable & warm. They look great to wear to work as well as with jeans on the weekends. way to go Boden!

        This sweater is a flattering update from last year's edition in terms of both the design (pattern is around the chest rather than around the neck) and the color selection (the green is fun but not too loud). It goes great with jeans and skirts and keeps me warm without being too heavy. I ordered a size up for comfort; if I had ordered true to size it would have been too fitted for my taste.

          This sweater is lovely shade of green and the pink and purple zig zags complement it beautifully. They closely match the website picture. It is soft, just a bit scratchy but with a vest or shirt underneath, no issue. I wear between 10-12 in Boden depending on the item, this runs a little large so a 10 was perfect. Not too tight or baggy, even in the chest area where I am busty!

              I ordered the Navy and I love it. The bold punch will cheer me up during the dreary winter. Warm but not bulky. Does have a bit of an odd smell but I am pretty sure it just needs some airing out. Certainly not a deal breaker for me.

              I bought the navy with the orangey trim.....it's a beautiful sort of retro-70's look. Do remember that lambswool is a tiny bit scratchy.......layering with something underneath may be a good idea. Considering that, I went up a size.

                Bought the green which is a bright, but not too bright color of Kelly green. Can wear alone in fall, then in colder weather, worn with a turtleneck underneath. I bought my usual Boden size large and it fits fine.

                  I loved the idea of this sweater, and it was cute in person. Unfortunately, I found it too thick and scratchy for me.
