      Very cute on arrival; I have not gotten to wear this yet since we have not entered the fall season. Fully lined dress and will look great in the fall with boots. I am 5'10 and got the regular length as the tall was all sold out. It is a little shorter than I prefer my dresses, hits a few inches above the knee, but will work with tights.

      From the description, I didn't realize how substantial this dress would be. The fabric is beautiful and really high quality wool blend. The dress is lined and although the description says it's poly it feels and looks like silk. Very soft and when I put the dress on I didn't feel any bit of scratchiness (I'm not super sensitive to that though).

      The style is exactly what I wanted and great for the woman with substantial hips. It's a wee bit snug in the arms, but I have enormous arms and I doubt that'd be a problem for most (and it often is for me, especially on tailored items).

      Then overall length is great and work- and age-appropriate for me. I'm keeping this and look forward to wearing it to work this winter!

      The size 14 was way too big. The size 12 was big in some ways, but small in others. It just didn't fit quite right.

        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!

                  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 :)
