I usually love Boden tunics, but this was not going to work. It just hung there - no shape (at least on me!) at all.

    I was drawn to this tunic online due to the retro details (great collar and styling in the photos). My regular 8 was not available, but I opted for the 8L since the tunic was on discount. I am 5'5" and the long comes down to just below my knees...ideally, I would have loved it to be a tad shorter, but it is still darling and will be perfect for the office. The tunic is very warm and will be great piece for winter. It definitely shows all bulges and rolls especially in the stomach area...so I have incentive to keep up with the crunches so I don't have to constantly keep my stomach sucked in at all times. But, all in all, I am really happy with this tunic and love the retro look it gives me. I think in some ways, I was born in the wrong decade....but thank goodness there is Boden to satisfy my retro tastes.

    Very cute, lighter weight than assumed

      The styling on this tunic dress is spot on- I love the 60s sensibility. It is a lighter weight than I anticipated- it's more like a looser weave sweater. I thought it would be heavier weight, and with more of a dense weave. I don't necessarily mind, but I will be wearing a slip or long underwear under it come winter. It also does tend to pill in places, rather quickly.

      Not a good fabric for me

            This is a cute dress. However, the fabric was a little too "clingy" for my taste. I would have preferred that it be lined. I ordered a size up because I was concerned that it would cling to curves, but the dress was too large. My usual size would have been fine.

              This dress is fantastic. It is pretty lightweight, very soft, and cozy. It has a very flattering fit and looks great with tall boots. It is very useful having pockets, but they do bulge a bit; that is my only complaint about the dress so far. I haven't washed it yet, but my experience has been that Boden clothes wash well--but don't put them in the dryer!

                I ordered this dress in my usual Boden size 6 and an 8 just to compare. I ended up keeping the 8. It's a cute dress, but the material is a bit thin so I'll be getting a slip to wear underneath. It's definitely dress length, not tunic length.

                  This dress is perfect for work. It's got a great shape and doesn't hug too tight. Some tunics are bit boxy, but this dress has a nice curve at the waist. The fabric is very soft and warm and with a pair of tights it's perfect for a chilly day. The redo collar and pocket details are a beautiful touch.

                    I can always tell when a dress works by the compliments received, as well as how I feel in it. I love this dress, which is both comfortable and stylish. I wore the black and white mini-patterned version to work as well as dinner out and have ordered the red one for the holidays. Can dress it up or down.It's unlined (unusal for Boden), so consider a slip. I would have ordered the third color if it hadn't sold out.

                      I have gotten a lot of compliments when I wear this. I love the style. I have not washed it yet. Unfortunately, I have to sit quite a bit at work and the seat does not retain its shape well. This is the only drawback for me.

                        I have never had so many compliments as when I wore this dress! It is great for work or a casual dinner. The fabric was so cozy, I didn't mind that the temperature dropped below freezing!
