    I bought this dress in 2 colors last year, and when it came back this year, Igot the purple-grey spot. The print is fabluous, and the cut is too - except for the arm cuff. It's almost painfully tight. I can't go up a size because it fits well through the rest of my body. I unfolded the cuff to find it finished inside the fold - like nearly everything Boden makes, it's very well made, even in the never-meant-to-be-seen details. I think if I cut the stiching holding the cuff fold down, it will be comfortable enough. The fabric is slightly stretchy, which keeps it crisp and wrinkle-resistant, so I only need a little more give. My arms are pretty long to begin with, anyway.

      I have this dress in the blue. Every time I wear the dress I get numerous compliments. I have a high waist and am pear shaped and the dress works very well with my figure. It is a little tight around the arms where the sleeve band is. The belt also easily wrinkled. I only wish this dress came in more patterns!

        I ordered both size 6 and 8 but the 6 fit better on my pear shape...the size 8 was too big in the bust so I'll return. The brown color looks great against my olive complexion and light brown hair. I wore it to church today and plan on wearing it to work as we'll.

            Very catchy! I got loads of comments on the dress i wore to work (including some men!) its trendy but classic at the same time. I have worn it to work meetings, picnics & girls outings and felt very comfortable. I wish I had got the grey though.

            the only complaint is that it fits a bit odd around the bust/underarms that makes it hard to raise your arms without the fit feeling a bit uncomfortable. Also the waist could be a bit lower

            Perfect length! I am 5'9 & I got a tall

              I recently bought a few new Boden dresses to punch up my wardrobe. This dress is fun, classic and unique. I've worn 2xs and have received many compliments. One couple pulled their car over to ask where I bought the dress.

              I'm 5' 10" and would suggest the long length if you're over 5' 9". It wasn't available when I purchased but, if I did again, I would.

                I purchased the dress because i liked the bold striking color and classic lines. The size R was a little short waisted for my taste, but the L fit the mark. I am 5'8'" and the proportions were perfect. The fabric has good hand and it's weight is perfect for mid-temp climates. Worn with a pair of red pumps it's an absolute item.

                  The size 12 fit me very well. I'm busty and 5'5". I was a little hesitant about the giant polka dots at first, but they grew on me, and now I really like them. I got the blue. Note that the color is more blue on cream than blue on bright white. The material feels crisp--like it wouldn't wrinkle terribly easily.

                  It's a great dress for work. Classic but I never see designs like this outside of Boden!

                    I wore this dress today for the first time and oh my; every women that walked by me commented on how much they loved the dress and some tried to touch it. This is a great buy. I had at least 15 women ask me about the dress today and none of them had heard of Boden. I believe you will have new customers! Great job w/the design of this dress.
