      I should have known better. The model looks quite va-va-voom curvaceous with the snug bodice and sleeves. Some reviews indicate it fits like a glove i.e. snug. So I ordered up one size. I don't think this dress would work for me in any size. In the larger size the sleeves were still too tight (and I don't have fat arms). The top of the dress was too large. The bottom was shapeless and overall the line was squat because the proportions of width to length were too short. I didn't reorder down a size because I know the sleeves would be unwearable. And I don't think I could carry off the tight fit over my, ahem, bulges. I think if you have a great figure this dress must be awesome in your usual size.

      I coveted this dress from the first time I saw it. I searched and searched at the sample sale and didn't find one my size, so i went ahead and ordered it. It did not fit well. I am usually a 10-12 in Boden dresses. I ordered a 10 and a 12 and both didn't fit. The 10 was way too tight and short, the 12 was snug and fit weird-the waist was cut too high for me and the skirt was not pencil as it looks on the model, it was like a triangle on me. I sent them back.

          Love this dress--bought in both black and rainforest (which is more of a blue green). It fits the curves in all the right places, slimming along the hips, etc. Washes well; substantial fabric so is good for work or evening out. I was worried that as I'm busty the neckline would accentuate too much, but not the case at all.

            I now own three Winter Audrey dresses, in black, black/red spot and black/green spot -- the latter a new purchase. Wore the black/red spot to an all-day conference recently and felt comfortable, professional and stylish. Love the fun spots and subdued yet flattering colors. I'm somewhat hard to fit, with a proportionately larger waist, yet this dress seemed to maximize my assets and create a slenderized line.

            I machine washed it, gave it a brief spin in the dryer (where it actually isn't supposed to go) and hung it up to finish drying (even though it's supposed to dry flat). It still fits fine, though I do store it folded up rather than on a hanger, per the instructions.

                Oh Boden, I love you. I have been eyeing this dress for months and finally decided to use some tax money to spoil myself. I was nervous, particularly because the dress looks SO good on the teeny model in the picture- and I am much umm "curvier" than that.

                The dress arrived today and it fit so well, looked so good… it was like losing 5 pounds! I have been trying to lose weight and was anticipating that the size would be a bit tight on me now but it was purrrrrrfect. Meow. Classy, comfortable, good for the office, good for nightlife, good for everything. I almost wonder if I should have gotten the next size smaller, but I fear it would be too tight in the arms and chest so I am sticking with this size.

                  This dress is beautifully made and lined. It is surprisingly sexy for such a classic dress. It has that kind of Audrey feel even when I'm wearing it to work. It is a great dress to wear when you want to be a little flirty but not inappropriate. I'm 50 and it works really well - classic but not dowdy. I have it in two colors and will probably buy another color this season too.

                  I loved this dress when I picked it up out of the box. The material is substantial yet soft and the navy with the black polka dots seemed so versatile to me. I loved the body of the dress. It was fitted in all the right places but I couldn't get past the sleeve length. It hit well above the elbow and just was not flattering at all. Most people would probably not have a similar problem and, if not, the dress is otherwise a winner.

                    A great classic dress in black. The fabric doesn't wrinkle and has a nice weight to it that doesn't cling and looks great. It looks great with a cardigan for winter.

                        I love you, Boden. I am 5'4, 130 lbs, short-waisted. Dresses with this cut make me seem like I have more of a waist-nip than I really do. I used the size-suggestion tool and was told 6R. Because of my waist, I can wear 6-12, depending on the brand, but mostly 8s or 10s. Boden 8s have been good in the past, so I was hesitant to order a 6R. I chose 8R instead. Fits great.
