        I purchased the black one, and the color was a little darker than what I was expecting. I thought it would be more similar to what is on the model. I tend to wear it with some funky panty hose and boots or with off black hose and pumps. I also dress it up a little with a simple necklace.

        I bought this in red -- mostly for the color and pattern, which is gorgeous! It's just as pretty in person. I had to size up to fit my larger bust, otherwise the banding came up too high. But in a size larger (10 compared to my usual 8), it works well. I also ordered a long because otherwise it seemed inappropriate for work, even on my 5'4" frame. I'm a curvy size 8. It puffs out a bit at the hips, I actually think it would be most flattering on more of a "boy shape." But I love the color and pattern so much I'll keep it.

          I bought this dress in the black and love it! It is so comfortable yet dressy enough to wear to a special occasion. I found the fit very flattering on my tall hourglass frame.. will buy the green too if the price drops!

            The pattern is pretty, but the material is much more lightweight than I imagined and the fit makes my large busted hourglass shape look dowdy. The bottom poofs out in a way that seems to add 20 pounds. The material needs to be heftier and stretchier. I'm 5'4", 150 pounds.

              I bought this in a size 4 in the red pattern. I have worn it for two different work parties and got numerous compliments on it. It is a great dress and a notch above casual but does not cross over in "cocktail" wear in my opinion. Looks cute with heels or dressed down with tights.

                I wear a black dress to work at least once a week - i own at least 6 Black Bodens! This dress is set apart by the stylish velvet strip. It does make it look dressy, but we should feel pretty everyday, and this dress does it. I am 5'4, 135 lbs, 36B, curvy hips and thighs, and small waist. I originally ordered a 10R, but sent it back for a 8R. I wish the waist was slightly smaller to show off my hourglass, but it's still adorable and I feel great! One more Black dress to the collection! Yay!

                  Thought this looked lovely and really like the smooth, soft fabric. I bought two sizes to get it right, but both are just...off. Something around the size zip sticks out funny, and it just hits in all the wrong places. Sigh. Sending back.
