      A very nice fit, and a classic design. It hangs a little loosely in the front (at the skirt), but it will be a perfect fall dress.

        I am in love with this dress in pink. The cut is ultra-tasteful, even conservative, while the color is aggressive and gorgeous. I cannot believe how comfortable it is, and it makes me feel like I ought to be cutting the ribbon at some new park.

          OMG, this dress is AMAZING!!! I'm so happy to get it during sale, and they were sold out very quickly. I was lucky to get two - brown tweed and pink wool with the intention to compare and to keep just one, but after trying them on and seeing husband's reaction (!!!) decided to keep both of them. The quality is amazing, the fit is great ( got 4R) and I just feel sexy in them. Love love love!!!

            I purchased the orange tweed dress, which is just a beautiful fabric,( the color looks like the picture with the model), and a flattering design.This dress is well made and has those details that some high priced designer styles wished they had! Unfortunately,I had to return because the dress was too large.I reordered a size smaller,but in the pink and from other reviews I am hoping to love it as well.If you can find your size, order this dress!!!

              The orange/black tweed is a lovely fabric and I hope Boden will use a similar fabric again as I was not able to keep this one. It was true to size, the top section was a perfect fit but the bottom part was just too much of a ballon shape and even with the long it was just not quit long enough for the variety of occasions that I needed it to fulfill. And a note to Boden Designers, please offer this sleeve length again in other dresses, it's GREAT!

                I wore this dress to work for a presentation and everyone complimented me on the gorgeous pink dress. Paired with tights, you can wear this to work in the winter.

                Must dry clean, but worth it. Everyone wanted to know where I had purchased this dress.

                    Gorgeous material and clean lines. It is a lovely dress to wear to an elegant day time wedding or out to a fancy dinner with your grandparents.

                    The waist is high - like a lot of Boden dresses so if that works for you I would recommend the dress highly.

                      After ordering and loving this dress in the Blue, I returned for the Bright Pink ~ and I'm very glad I did. It's thinner than the Blue, but that's good ~ it almost feels like a different dress, yet with all the same impressive details. The craftsmanship on this garment is simply superb, reminiscent of the days in the late sixties when my mother used to have "better" dresses tailored for her and believe this quality is rare in the more frequented stores here in America.

                      I would dry-clean this dress ~ to be safe. It's worth it, though.

                      This pink color will be perfect for weddings, formal luncheons and some speaking engagements. I couldn't be happier.

                        Had to return this because it wasn't the mother of the groom dress that I was looking for, but it seemed like a great dress.
