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.

              The dress is fully lined and made with care. I ordered 8L and am a 36B. The fabric is heavy so not for hot weather. The dress didn't fit anywhere except the bust. Very unflattering with no form. It is going back.

                Had such high hopes for this dress. Read all the reviews. Then plunged in. And it is SOOOOOO short. Must return, and nothing left in longer size. Sigh

                  I'm 5'9", 150 lbs, and the 8R was too short but otherwise perfect in every other way. This dress is so comfortable and gorgeous that I will exchange it for the long if there are any left. It is an excellent staple dress: something you'd want to have in your closet at all times bc it would be great for so many occasions.

                    I rarely (if ever) post comments/reviews, but I really love this dress. I got it in the mail last night, and wore it to work today...and received two compliments within the first 30-minutes of being in the office.

                    This dress is sophisticated, well-made (great lining), and flattering.
                    I am kind of pear shaped, and I love the fit of this dress on my body.

                    Highly recommend!
