    Feels so comfortable thanks to the stretchy material. Looks elegant, but beware if you are pear shape like me, there is something about the voluminous skirt that makes my backside look huge!

    I was so excited about this dress. I ordered it for my college graduation this December. It's a beautiful dress but a little boxy on. I wish it fit better. I had to send it back.

      Beautiful color and nice shape

          I love Boden's ponte dresses with full skirts but I wasn't sure about ordering this one because of some of the negative reviews. I am a pear shape and I find this to be quite flattering. The purple is a beautiful, saturated color and the dress lining feels so nice. I was worried when I first tried it on because it has a long zipper and I couldn't reach it myself. But, the fabric is stretchy enough that I was able to pull it on fully zipped.

          The color of this dress is gorgeous, but the style just didn't work on my body. It was a little frumpy looking on my "not so model like" figure. I had to send it back, but luckily, Boden is wonderful about returns!

          So close to perfect but too shortwaisted

            So much too love: not too heavy for US off office central heating fab swishy skirt, potentially really flattering cut. Drawbacks: wais cut too.high for the short waisted (that's me 5'4.5" and usually liking Boden dresses BECAUSE they accommodate my really short back-waist length. The almost empire waistline really makes the floppy skirt less flattering. No pockets. There's plenty of room for side-seam pockets in this design, and a dress for the office is much better if it gives you a place to put a key. Black not available iny size. ;).

              I am very happy with this dress! Not only is it comfortable, it fits perfectly and is very flattering. (I am 5'6", 170 lbs., sz 10) It is more on the conservative side so I will mainly be wearing to it to work, but I like that it is a classic and can be dressed up or down. I purchased the black and hope to purchase the green before it sells out!

                I run in between a 10 and 12 and bought the 12 in this and it was too large. I'm not loving it enough to trade it back for a 10, though. Seemed short waisted for me. I love Boden skirts and sweaters but never have luck with the dresses. I'll keep trying, though. I love Boden.

                  Great basic dress to wear to work, out for an evening, or just a nice day dress when you are tired of jeans. This dress is made of a nice mid weight fabric, that will work well in the cooler months. I ordered the wine color in the regular length and it comes to my knee. The skirt is full and the waist is high but not too high. Love it!

                      The best way I can describe my reaction after trying on this green dress is it's simply unwearable. The green color is lovely, the fit is right on for a size 4 (34B/27/36 and 123 pounds/5'5" tall) But the reason I couldn't step out of my closet in this dress is the seams at the bust point out so oddly that everyone would be looking at them! It's not just that they're strangely pointy. There is a little gathering of fabric at the tip of each seam. I typically love Boden dresses but this is a serious design flaw and makes the dress truly awful. I've never rated anything from Boden a "1" before but this dress doesn't deserve better! Couldn't send it back fast enough!
