    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.

          I absolutely love this dress. Comfortable, great color combo suprisingly enough, and I got it on a super sale. The only wish I have is that it could be about 2 inches longer to hit right above my knees and make me feel a little more comfortable while I'm sitting.

          I was a little skeptical from the pics online when I ordered this dress but when it arrived, OMG - awesome! So well made, collar embellishment is out of this world! Fits well - not too tight, not too loose, fully lined, classy and high quality. I have gotten so many compliments on this dress! The colors are amazing in person and a great color scheme for all seasons -will work great in Spring and Summer with the pastel pink.

            This is a lovely and unique dress. The print is eye catching. The neck is heavily beaded, but the total effect is subtle. The dress is very well made, completely lined. I read other reviews before purchasing and decided to take the long length which I usually do not. I am 5'6". The long is just right for me. The beading is delicate so the dress will require care, but it is definitely worth it.

              This dress looked cute on-line but looked awful on me. I have a busty, hourglass shape and this dress, though it fit, was incredibly unflattering. I'm sending it back. I bought the taupe,blue and coral print and the colors really were not attractive nor flattering. Very disappointing. I have quite a few Boden dresses but this one won't be joining the group.

                This is such a beautiful piece! The fit is loose, but elegant and the style is so versatile...making it appropriate for many occasions. Well made and worth every cent! Thanks Boden!
