    I am so pleased with this dress! I got it in navy, and it's stunning. Like another reviewer stated, the navy is very dark, so the embroidery isn't as easily noticed from far away, but I think it makes the dress even more versatile and beautiful. It can be dressed up--worn by itself with black patent pumps or strappy shoes or navy peep-toe pumps--or for business--with a black or navy silk cardigan or black blazer--or a bit more casual--with a black or navy cotton cardigan. It's exactly what I needed. I wish I had needed/been on the look-out for such a dress when Boden first introduced it, because I would have bought the other two colors, too. Really, it's that versatile (as well as washable--another bonus!). I think it is a three-season dress, too, for those of us living in cooler climates. (I was actually going to get the navy, short sleeve split neck dress that Boden is showing for spring 2014, but the cotton piqué meant that it could only be worn in the spring and summer--a con for me.) As for size, I was worried that it would be too small given some of the other reviewers' comments, but my regular size 2 (I've been a 2R in Boden for 5+ years) was perfect. It is nicely fitted through the bust (without being tight; I'm a 34B) and it comes to my knees (I'm 5'3"). When I first tried it on, I worried that there wasn't a kick-pleat, but with a slight A-line at the bottom, a kick pleat isn't necessary. Also, I did not find the cap sleeves to be tight or that they stuck out, as another reviewer commented, and were flat under my cardigans. This is a winner. Thanks Boden!

          I can't wait for the prefect occasion to wear this dress! I got the dark blue and I love the way the embroidered detail is both elaborate (because it's along allover the dress) but also subtle (because it's black). The cotton satin fabric is both elegant and comfortable. I love it so much that I have kept it hanging in plain sight in my bedroom since unpackin it!

            I absolutely loved this dress when I saw it in the box. The color was a rich golden tobacco with beautiful black embroidery. I wanted so much for it to look good on me. Alas, it did not. It was not fitted enough below the bust and the bust line itself looked just okay. The shoulders of the dressed looked boxy and unattractive. I so wanted to love this dress and, for the right body type, it would be great. I just don't know what type that would be!

                I love the color (gold) and style of this dress, but the sizing was a bit off.... It fit well through the bust, was large in the shoulders and waist, and just right in the hips.... I've sent it back hoping a smaller size might work, but I'm a little doubtful. Sad, because it's beautiful!

                      In general, I loved this dress. I got it for a dinner and theater night out with my husband. I purchased the "drake" and it's a really fantastic color, very flattering. The dress is also super well made. Overall, the cut/shape is really great and fit my curvy figure well, but I found it a little long (though that's likely because I have short legs) and that the collar just didn't really sit well. It was a little high in the back and I felt like it was possible to see the lining and insides occasionally over my shoulders. My husband never mentioned that as the case though, so maybe that's just how I felt it was.
