      I ordered this in a 6R The bodice is small. I am 5'4" and 122 pounds. I would love to try an 8R but sadly they are out of stock.
      The petrol color is beautiful. I have returned the 6R and hope to snag an 8R if someone returns or stock is available.

      The color is really a blah and the fit pulled in all the wrong places. I think a different color would've made the pulling less noticeable too.

        What a great, well-made dress. Excellent work attire. Comfortable and form fitting, sleek and stylish. My favorite color to boot (army green). The 2R fits me perfectly and is true to size for me. I'm hoping it doesn't shrink otherwise it might be just a little too tight around my mid-section and the buttons would gap. The 4R was definitely too large for me. Love this dress! Wore it to my last day of work with cream cable knit tights, brown boots, and an orange mid-century scarf from my great-grandmother around the waist. Smashing!

          The fabric is sturdy, and the construction and design are top rate, although since I like a slightly looser fit, I will need to return for one size larger.

            I LOVE this dress! The seaming is extremely flattering and it has just enough detail on the sleeves, button placket, collar and waist to make it interesting. I hope Boden makes this again, perhaps in a deep purple or in a print. I absolutely love this one! For reference, I am 5'4" with a very curvy frame (size 14) and this is really slimming.

                    I had high hopes for this dress and it meets them. A bit heavier than I expected (and I would probably prefer it to be a bit lighter), but it is a classy yet practical dress that could go anywhere and is a great take on the classic shirtdress. Will get a lot of use out of this one.

                      Thank you for all reviews ladies leave about their experience with Boden products. I always read them before any purchase and pretty much tell from the reviews only if the item going to fit and look good or not. This dress is not exception. Great fit and construction. It might be too thick for warm days, but I am still planning on wearing it often.
