    Very pretty dress that seems to fit true to size. I'm very busty (38 DD), and while it definitely shows off some cleavage, it's not gratuitous and strethes to accommodate. However, I would not wear it to work in any office setting. A nice date or event dress.

      I committed this year to wear more dresses and this one was the perfect beginning. The navy fan design is not too frou-frou, especially for one who prefers jeans over dresses! Great dress, perfect fit! Easy to throw on with boots or sandals! I can't wait to wear it. For reference, I am 5 foot 6 inches and weigh 135 lbs with an ample chest, 34DD.

        I would wear this dress everyday for the rest of my life, if it were possible and socially acceptable to do so. It's pretty much the best dress I've ever worn- fits like a dream, has unique touches, super flattering empire waist and scoop neck. I'm really resisting the urge to purchase about 20 of them and horde them in my basement. My husband might be a little upset about that, so I won't. But I'm tempted. I only wish it came in about 100 more fabric patterns (:

          I ordered the Ava dress in Fall Green and really like the color. The dress is fitted through the bust and arms with extra room in the waist and hip but not baggy. The scoop neck is too low on me and I would not be comfortable wearing it to work. The fit makes me look broad shouldered and although I'm not large chested, it makes me feel that way because of the cut. I don't know if sizing up would help since the cut would still be low. I wish I could keep it but I must return.

              They say if you were around for it the first time (e.g., mini-skirts), then you should pass when the style shows up again, as it will. This is advice I follow (sigh...), so it was really fun to see a print reminiscent of (short) dresses I wore the '70s. And on sale. The 12 was true to size and the fabric is substantial but not at all heavy. Falls nicely. Following previous reviewers' advice, I ordered a long and it hits just below the knee (5'5), which is perfect.

                The feel and fit is great. The fabric stretches in all directions and is heavier knit that gives the dress a pricier look. I ordered a long in my size so I don't have to worry about where my hemline is when working with elementary school students.

                  I originally bought this in my usual Boden size, 12L, and it was a bit snug in the hip area. I decided to follow other reviewers' advice and size up, and glad I did as it added a just a tad more room in the hip area that I needed. Love the print, the neckline, and overall look and fit of the dress.

                    I love this dress! I have a similar 3/4 sleeve boden dress I wear all the time and was hoping to get a sister to it - glad I found this! I got the size 8, my usual dress size, which fits well. I wish the bodice were a little bigger (I'm a 36C) and I don't think it would fit if I were any bigger.

                    I got the multi color, and I would warn others that the yellow areas are much brighter than shown. I expected the color scheme to be more subtle, but it's not a deal breaker for me.
