      Cute, retro dress but too small on top

          So this dress was pretty cute but a little too small on top and I might have even kept it but the armholes were also too tight and that's never something I encounter so I think there's something really off with the armholes on this dress. If not for that I might have kept it.

          Odd Fit But So Pretty

          I have this dress in two sizes and I have the short jacket and coat that go with it. This being said the dress does not fit well. However, I kept it because I love it so much with the coat and jacket. In the smaller dress, which fits my hips and waist, the chest is tight (which is not a problem in most Boden dresses for me, although I am large chested), but the stomach area is still not right. In the larger size dress everything is loose. I want to alter it and make it work better, but haven't taken to time to do it yet--it's tricky because the pattern is essentially stripes which is hard to alter. It's worth it to me to keep it, though, because the fabric is beautiful--it's a lovely stiff, but not overly heavy fabric that will really stand up and it is just such a pretty outfit, especially with the coat. It's so classic and understated. I do wish the fit were better.
          I could only recommend this dress to someone who could sew or who had a good seamstress.

          Ill-Fitting

          • Wear To Work

          I really wanted to like this dress. I wanted it to fit and I wanted to keep it...however, that's not what happened. I'm 5'8", 140 lbs and usually a 4L in Boden (US). I have a narrow/small top-half and a bigger (think pear shaped) bottom half, but no gut to speak of. As such, dressed with fitted tops that flare out past the waist usually work for me.

          This dress arrived and the fabric was beautiful. Heavy, with a nice sheen and texture and would've been perfect under a blazer at the office (and more interesting than most of my boring gray/black work wear). But alas, the dress had a weird waist, smallish arm holes, and the skirt poofed out from the waistband and then narrowed around the rear/hips in a sort of narrow tulip shape that was all wrong for me. I sent it back - sadly.

          I ordered my usual size 8R but the dress was very large.
