      This dress fit me perfectly in the long size. Thank you Boden for realizing that tall women need a different fit in more than just pants! I am 5' 10" and the waist nips in right at my natural waist. The hem hits modestly below the knee.

      The color was not what I expected. I thought it was black and white with citron beading. The fabric is multi color. The fit is so nice though, so I don't mind.

      This dress is beautifully made. The beading at the neck is just too much for me. The embellishments are very heavy, and a little noisy when moving around. I also think it runs a little large, and frumpy like in the waist area. Pretty material. Luxe look, but just trying too hard with the jewels. It had to go back on sizing alone.

      Nice dress, but proportions are a bit off - tight in hips and large on top. The busy pattern and beading are a unique and bold combination and it is well made. The beading is beautiful. But the beads are very heavy and they pull the front of dress down. Versatile - I feel put together without trying yet I do not feel overdressed in more casual environment. The dress is not "perfect" but I am keeping it as it definitely "works".

      I just bought this dress for an April wedding - it is perfect! So comfortable, and though the applique seemed a bit heavy, it was comfortable and wore very well. I received numerous compliments. The pink is more of a salmon color and was absolutely beautiful with the blue. I didn't need to wear much jewelry because the dress itself was so interesting and ornate. Love this dress - very comfortable and well made. And the sale price! Wow! Better snatch this one up ladies!! Thanks Boden!!!

        This dress is very flattering and cute. The cap sleeves are long enough to offer a little coverage and it has a nice waistband to keep it from being shapeless. The top is a little blousy which works well with the detailing at the neck. I tried this on and my husband immediately called it a keeper.

        I unfortunately had to return this dress because the oversize fit had me feeling like I was wearing a potato sack. But the dress was well made and very unique.

              Your catalog arrived via the mail & it was so interesting that l went directly to find the Boden on-line site. I was looking for a classic cocktail dress with a interesting style twist when I saw the picture of this dress. The additionally provided views of this style and or colors, really assisted with my decision. This was my first purchase with Boden & I did exchange for a smaller size, (I can run between a 6 or 8 in a dress.) I thought the size estimator was ingenious!
              Understated earrings and really fun heels are all you need to add with this dress as the beading provides amazing show stopping jewelry. Everyone mentions how much they love this dress and then they naturally inquire as to where I purchased it. My only alteration was to add sewn in lingerie straps to keep the extra weight of the beading from pulling downward on the dress front. This adventuresome combination of a daring color of beading combined with the interesting fabric created a wonderfully amazing dress. Thank you all so very much!

              The beading is more beautiful in person than on the picture. It is heavy though and my shoulders were not big enough for the neckline. It is a beautiful dress. The coral dress is more grey than the picture shows.
