    I really loved the cut out and pattern, but like so many Boden dresses, this is probably designed for a B cup or smaller. the waist really isn't much smaller than the chest area, and since it has an entirely separate piece of material for the waist, it would be expensive to have tailored.

            This fit properly, and the color & detailing was lovely, but it was weirdly not flattering. I sent it back.

              I will be wearing this to a christening. I ordered it in the green and the color is beautiful. It fits very well. It's a little difficult to get off, but otherwise, I know I will get a lot of use out of this dress.

              I was really disappointed - I love the design and the material is really comfortable, but something about the fit was off. Most things fit me but the waist here was cut too high and it looked awkward, and there was a bit too much material at the very top of the chest by the shoulders and too little around the actual armholes. Not sure what to make of it. I hope they tweak the tailoring and try again next season.

              Nice but not spectacular

                    I got this on the clearance sale and I'm glad I did as the dress is nice enough for the price currently. I got the blue with the pink inside and I like the pink "pop". Even though I am short (5'3"), I still got the long as I am 40 and wanted to make sure it was long enough for work. It fits me just below the knee which is great. What I really love about all the Boden products is that they are almost all washable--even this dress which looks like it would be dry clean only. I'm not going to wash it at home (much too lazy to air dry and then iron), but I still love the option!

                      This dress is absolutely lovely. It's color is just as pictured, a bright red. It's very soft material and it looked and felt fabulous once I put it on. I wore it to church and received so many compliments. I love that it hugs my figure without it being too tight or clingy, it's a very classic, and classy, silhouette.

                        I love this dress, but it is not quite the right fit for me, a bit tight around the hips. It seems very well made and is a nice material. I am normally an 8, and it's quite snug around the hips. I would order up but it would be too big on the top. It's a very nice dress, just not a good fit for me.

                          What a gorgeous dress, love the cut out eyelet top which features an accent color. I purchased the red which has a purple accent, I loved the green but it was out of stock unfortunately. I have not had a chance to wear or wash yet, but it seems like it will wear very well.

                          This dress has a great, classic design. It fit perfectly when I first tried it on (I'm 5'3" and ordered a size 4). However it arrived with deodorant stains on it, so I washed it exactly per the care instructions - wash cold, delicate cycle, line dry, press inside out while still damp. In spite of this, the dress shrank dramatically. It ended up at least 3 inches shorter, and 2 inches narrower. Also, pressing it inside out while damp does not get rid of the wrinkles, but pressing it right side out on higher heat will damage the fabric. Boden Customer service was really helpful with all of this. However, don't get this dress unless you're willing to always have it dry cleaned.
