      I liked the dress when I saw it online and when it went on sale I had to get it. I'm so glad I did! The material is thick but not bulky and the dress hits just as it should. My husband loved it too! I'm 5/2" and the petite hit every spot perfectly.

        Wow! This dress is so beautiful and elegant. I feel so classy wearing this dress as if it was tailor made for me. The fabric is heavy, but not too heavy. So this dress is better suited for colder weather. The color combination (mustard/navy) looks much nicer in person. The picture does not do this dress justice, because it is so beautiful.

          Lovely heavy fabric. A bit wide in the torso/hips, but I think the 8 would be too small in the shoulders and arms (I got a 10, and am 5'6" and 180). Its just adorable on, and I'm loving it for work.

            Others have complained about the structured shape of this dress, but it works well for me (5'6", curvy, large thighs). I'm planning to wear it to my daughter's bat mitzvah--it's perfect because it's pretty and shows that you made an effort without being overly trendy or at all revealing (sometimes you want those things, sometimes you don't!).

            Dress looked nice to me and I've made my order ignoring quite negative reviews I saw online. I liked colors and idea. But I have to agree with other customers - I returned it because fabric was not great. Overall dress looked baggy and a little bit "rustic" on me.

              I bought this dress on sale (and am always a little leery of buying sale items-they are on sale for a reason, right?) so was a little skeptical before receiving in the mail. But I thought, "why not give it a try?". This was the first purchase I have made at Boden.

              I am 5'11", about 140 lbs and purchased the navy/black in a 6L. The dress fits perfectly on my very broad shoulders and the length is perfect for work-with or without tights underneath. I am incredibly pleased with the thick, high quality material and comfort of this garment. I typically like to dress in feminine, vintage-esque styles and this dress fit the bill. I will be purchasing many more dresses from this store in the future.

                This dress could have been great, but such a fail. Fabric is stiff and thick. Fit is terrible.

                I so wanted this to be great.

                  I'm almost 5' 5" and I got a size 4R I think, I went back to the dress, and I cannot find a size on any of the tags! But, I love the dress - comfortable and stylish. I just feel good whenever I wear it! It's been cold here, so I've worn it with a wrap that ties in the front - it's still cute, but cuter without the wrap. The material is somewhat thick and therefore, feels very well made. I love the rick rack on the bottom and the fitted bodice. I don't think I will be able to wear it when it's super hot and humid out, but perfect for spring and fall!

                    This dress is great, I get nothing but compliments for it. I'm 5'8" 156 lbs 34C pear shaped and got it in a size 4, the navy and mustard color. It's very well made and substantial. It's very comfortable and fits like I expected from the pictures. To me, there isn't anything weird or unexpected about it, other than how well made it is :)
