This is my third polka dot dress from Boden and its a great addition to my collection. This dress is silk, great color (I got the Grape) and flattering. I thought it was true to size, I ordered the 8 long. I often have fit problems in the bust, but this dress fit well. I also found that the waist line hit appropriately (just under my bust), but that could be b/c I have a larger bust.

Only con, lost button from sleeve, first day.

    Super cute and well made dress. Definitely should have listened to the size calculator because the dress definitely ran big.

      This dress fits beautifully and can be worn so many different ways throughout the seasons: with tights and boots and a layered sweater, or on its own with heels. So glad it is part of my wardrobe!

        I was hoping the dress was more turquoise like in the picture. The dress fit too baggy. It is a great dress, I wished it had worked.

          Very pretty, but I think I could use a smaller size. This was my first time ordering from Boden. I ordered based on the size guide. I am ordinarily a 0 or 2 at other shops, however based on the size guide I should be a 4 at Boden. I think a 2 would have been best. Overall, it's not bad. I wear it with a wide colorful belt.

          The cinnamon color was gorgeous, as was the fabric and neckline! However, the style just didn't work for me.The waistline is at an odd spot, not at the waist where it would look proper to wear a belt and not an empire waist either. It made the fit look a bit frumpy.

          Very Unflattering

          Best Uses

            I'm pear-shaped with a small waist and this dress succeeds in making me look like a curve-less rectangle. If the waist were more fitted and/or the top were more blousy, I think this would be a beautiful dress. The fabric is soft, yet substantial, and hangs well. The cut is just extremely unflattering.

            Pretty, but not greatly flattering

            I did not say "bad design" overall, because the neckline, shoulders, sleeves, and length are all great. My only qualm was the location of the seam at the waist. Now that I have the item and know what to look for, I can even see this issue on the model...If you look closely, you can see that the belt falls below the seam at the waist. In person, this looks really weird.

            The seam is not at the natural waist. Rather, it is almost directly under the bust. I found it impossible to belt there...And I do think this dress needs a belt.

                I liked the material of this dress but the design was strange. The detail by the neck was weird and did not look good so I sent it back.
