    This is a great dress for Fall and Winter. I will get a lot of wear out of it. One comment about the fit. I am generally a 4P...I'm short. After talking to the folks at Boden I ordered a 4R. A 4P would have been too short for work wear. The 4R fits perfectly, and hits at the top of my knee.

    Need a slip

    I like this dress, and I'm keeping it. That being said, it isn't super flattering and, for me, definitely needs a belt. Further, I think a slip is a must. While the fabric on the bottom generally flows away from the body, if you move certain ways even the most VPL-resistant panties show some lines.

        I usually wear an 8 in Boden dresses, but got a 10 because that was all they had left. Well it was absolutely HUGE in the hips. Not flattering at all, especially combined with the empire waist. Too bad, it was a nice shade of blue :-(

        Very 60s/Mad Men!

          This dress is Joan from Mad Men from head to toe. It's very stylish, has some stretch, is body conscious and classy at the same time. The fabric is heavier than I anticipated, so I'd consider it perfect for cooler fall weather. I got the blue and the color is true to to the photograph. I'm a curvy gal with hips and I find the cut extremely flattering.

          Top Quality, needs a belt

            This is a top quality Boden dress! It has thick, warm fabric, which will be perfect come winter. It is also lined, and these two features allow for plenty of figure-forgiveness. I love that underwear lines will NOT be an issue. (:

            I do feel it needs a belt of some sort- on my pear-shaped frame it does seem that the waist is a touch ambiguous.

            Overall, this is a good purchase- I know it will get lots of use when the snow flies!

              This dress is why I shop I Boden. The quality is exceptional and the details are perfect. The blue color is vibrant and looks just like the website pictures. The inner seam had a little area near the hip where it tended to fold up but it was easily ironed flat.

                Once again, Boden has another stunning dress. I will wear this to work and out. The collar gives the dress the wow factor. The cut of the dress makes me look as if I have a flat tummy. The dress hides my flaws and I feel confident wearing it. No need to wear any spanx here. This fabric is slightly heavy, but not too heavy. More appropriate for colder weather. I absolutely love it!

                  This is not a summer dress; I bought it with the intent of breaking it out in the fall. Really nicely made. I bought this dress in camel; accessories will make this outfit as by itself it is a bit bland. Very comfortable. I understand other reviewers concern with length - I am 5'4" and the length is fine for me, but it would be short for taller women.

                    I loved this dress in Lapis (the cobalt blue). It was stunning, the neckline is interesting and reminiscent of the classy 60s. I am 5'9, medium boned and flat chested and it looked fantastic on me. Unfortunately I need it to be knee length to fly professionally and this also has a 60s length. SUCH a bummer that it had to go back. It was fantastic.
