    I was able to get this in the wine color with the purple collar. Really pretty colors and the design is quite stylish with a 60's vibe. I'm over 40 so I don't know if the collar makes it too young on me - not 100% sure if it works for someone my age. But I hope it does because I'm in love with it on the hanger! My usual size 4 is a bit snug on me - I will have to wear shape wear with this one. But the design is so unusual and I haven't seen a dress like this on anyone else so I'm hoping I'll keep it and wear it a lot. My plan is to wear it with tights and flats. Could also be worn with a cute pair of boots. What I love about Boden is they make me step out of my wardrobe comfort zone and wear unique, stylish pieces that set me apart from the crowd. Thanks Boden!

          This was my first purchase and will certainly not be my last from Boden. My sister shared your company with me and boy, am I happy. This dress is made very well and the fabric weight is excellent. I'm in love!

          I love the dress on the model, but it's all wrong on me (5'6" 145 lbs.) The arms and shoulders are way too big, and the hips are too small. Plus the stitching makes it look like my breasts are pointy. Definitely going back.

          Consider a smaller size

                This dress is very cute on the model pic. I ordered the size I generally do and found that this dress is cut large. I considered re-ordering one size down but ultimately decided the dress style looks a bit too "old-fashioned" on me. It is probably the collar.

                  This dress is so beautiful in the box...great fabric and beautiful collar. The bodice fit me well (36 DD) but the bottom of the dress swamped me in my normal Boden 12L. I couldn't have taken any size smaller in the top part of the dress. I think this would be lovely, just lovely, on someone with a straighter figure like the model in the photo.

                    This is a completely charming dress. Some of Boden's vintage-look dresses border on frumpy, but this one is just vintage-y enough. The fit is comfortable but still flattering on my apple shape--it's not baggy, but it doesn't highlight any bumps or bulges either. Looking forward to wearing it when the weather warms up just a little.

                    I purchased the red, and the color was gorgeous. The dress fit well on top, but the skirt was too full, so that it looked kind of frumpy all together. I think it's because I'm large on top, and that meant I needed a larger size. I really hoped it would work out. I think it would have been very versatile, and like most Boden items, distinctive compared to what others are wearing. I love most of my Boden dresses!

                      This dress is super cute. I am pear shaped and it fit very well. I am 5'4" so I had to get it hemmed just a bit, but I like my dresses a few inches above the knee. I cannot wait to wear it out and about.
