    Great for a range of ages - my 15 year old niece actually stole it from me! felt terrific on, looked great and was very comfortable sitting and standing.

    One slight con - the sleeves were a little baggier then they looked in the picture.

      Works for petite hourglass

        This dress works perfectly for me. I'm shortwaisted (5'2") 115# but got the 4L. If you have an hourglass shape, the bust and waist will fit you on this dress because the waist is very fitted. The full skirt makes up for the hip area that is usually too tight for me on Boden (rectangle shape!) dresses. The length hits just below my knees. It is warm and heavy, but the lining is very silky. I bought two and they are my first wool dresses--I'm sold!

        Much too small

              Loved the dress and the sale price but it was much too small for me in the torso :(
              Also, it would be difficult to zip up without assistance.

                I love everything about this dress, it is perfect for a petite person. I don't know how the waist would fit for a regular size as it is high. It is classic and love the pockets :)

                So I got a 2R for my 5'3" 100lb frame. It was too tight in the waist and big in the shoulders. I really wanted to like it, but there was too much room in the top for me. It was also itchy in the sleeves, but had a liner for the rest of the dress.

                I like this as a conservative dress with a fun full skirt, but the fit on top is a bit stiff and matronly. I also found it really difficult to get the zipper all the way up on my own. It does seem very well made, and a good canvas for belts and statement necklaces.

                  Throw on some pearls, put your hair in a chignon, and you will look so elegant! I love this dress. Get the long length if you are not super tiny though because the regular length is too short.

                        I ordered this dress last year, but returned it because it was so frumpy. I just couldn't believe myself, because this year I tried again. And it is still unflattering! I think that maybe it could work on less curvy figures. It's not fitted (needs more darts? princess seasms?) in the bodice, and it is a smidge too high waisted to fit well under the bust. The skirt is too full, bulky with too much materials, the effect is not good if there are hips under that skirt. I think if you have a great figure then you can carry off the dress. If you are curvy, then instead of working with one's shape, this dress just accentuates one's width :( Fabric is surprisingly and wonderfully warm & heavy, which is very nice for this winter dress.
