    This is a great day to night dress. I am 5'9", athletic build and the 8R fit great. I sometimes require a tall in Boden dresses but this dress is a comfortable length for me. The fabric is a good quality and wrinkle resistant making this a great dress for travel.

      Great except for shoulder fit

          So sorry to have to return this, but the shoulders stuck up in a weird way (I am short-waisted, so maybe that was the problem). I considered having the dress shortened along the shoulder seam, but then the neckline would have been very high. Loved the vertical braid trim - great for a short woman -- and the ease of the dress. But the upper body fit simply didn't work.

            I would have worn this for special occations but it didn't work for me. The combination of the beautiful braid and woven more casual cotton fabric seemed an odd choice. It was also too small for me so it went back.

            I am a teacher as a well as student and need to dress professionally, but yet comfortably because I have long days. This dress retains its shape throughout the day and can be dressed up for going out after work or down for a day at work and within the classroom.

            Didn't work for me

                  I get what this dress was trying to do, but it didn't work for me. I have a straight silhouette (36-26.5-34.5), and this wasn't flattering. It was a little poochy in front, and I just didn't feel great in it. I like the cream and black color scheme, though, and the quality was good. It just needs darts.

                  I ordered the cream with black. It was a little too busy for my petite frame. Perhaps more flatering on someone who is taller (I'm 5'1). I sent it back.

                    I got cream color one in my usual 6R, and it's a little too big all over, so I also ordered 4R to compare. 4R fits better except the shoulder. If i just wear it without cardigans, 4R is better. Even the shoulder is fine and comfortable. But if I wear this with black cardigan, with 4R the sleeves go out a little and push the cardigan and don't look good. With 6R the same problem is somewhat there, but not as severe. In the end, I decided to keep 6 and took in an inch from both sides from the chest down, and now it fits well. As other reviewers said, the fit of this dress is boxy. There is excess fabric around the waist. Still, this dress looks great, in my opinion. This is a dress you need to wear short with legs shown. I am 5"7 and 6R finishes a few inches above my knees, but any longer, this will look frumpy. For reference, I am 35-28-36. If you are between sizes, size down. With thick black tights and flats, it's super cute and stylish!
