A Cute Standard

        Another cute dress from Boden, similar to ones from previous years. I ordered the charcoal and navy colors, but returned the charcoal as it was pretty drab. The navy is a beautiful, rich hue. The dress might be a bit short for some people's tastes, but will be fine for me with dark tights and boots.

          Love this's dress! I got the 16L, and it came about 2 in her below the knee. ( I'm 5'6", 195 for reference) could have gone with the regular and been happy with length as well. it runs a tad big, but I like the roomy fit. I could size down for a more fitted look, but it likely wouldn't be as comfortable. The "sleeves" tug a tiny bit when I reach forward, not enough to bother, but it would be a bother if I sized down. The fabric is a bit heavier than expected, a bit on the velvet side, but not quite. The dress is lined which is helpful for skimming the body in all the right places. I got the navy color, and it's quite nice. Got lots of compliments when I wore to work

            I love the cut of this dress. The length in the petite is also just right -- slightly above the knee, but not too short. My only issue with it that the 6P was too large, but the 4P is a bit snug. That said, I'm larger-chested, so that probably wouldn't be an issue for a C-cup or smaller. Even so, I think the dress would benefit from a small bit of stretch in the fabric.

            I had been admiring this dress for a while and snapped up the Black version when it went on sale. The styling, fabric and stitching on the bodice are truly lovely. I ordered my usual Boden size 6 and was very disappointed to find it far too tight across the chest -- and I am not at all busty! (For reference purposes, I am between a Boden 4 and 6 in pants and skirts and a 6 in tops and dresses.) With a heavy heart I am sending this one back.

            I ordered in the navy color and the stitching details were gorgeous. I really wanted to keep this dress, but the fabric just didn't sit well on my frame and I sent mine back. I'm sure it would work great on a different body type.

              This dress is so cute, and it fits my style perfectly. The bib front is somehow flattering (rather than flattening) and the stitiching is unusual and decorative while still being pretty casual and classic. My only issue is that it's about an inch too short -- but I can let the hem down. (I'm 5'10")

              I keep trying the tunicky dresses and this one does have a fun neckline for sure...but the zipper stuck the FIRST time I tried it on. That's a no-go, so back it went. It was moderately flattering, but not enough to try to make it work. No stuck zippers. Bah.

                    I really like this dress. I gave 4 stars and not 5 because it is so difficult to get off! I wold have preferred a back zipper over the under the arm side zipper. I ordered a 6 (my usual) but decided to exchange for a 6L to get a little extra length as this dress does not really stretch and move with you. Although the fabric is comfortable to wear, when you sit down, it comes right up your thigh!

                      Bought this dress for a new job and am extremely happy with it. The fit is perfect on my (size 16), and it reminds me of other dresses by boden in this same style. Flattering and comfortable.

                        This dress is adorable. It is true to size and fits great. It is great for a casual lunch or dinner out. I wore it with a tissue tee underneath in the cold weather and it still fit well.
