    I ordered this dress in the Khaki/Pink Floral print and was delighted by the color. I'm 5'6" (34, 27, 36) and 120lbs and the size 4R fit nicely and hit at my knee. The entire dress is lined which adds to the comfort of wearing. The dress bottom is fitted like an a-line skirt. Only drawback are the armholes - slightly large but not a complete deal breaker to justify sending the dress back.

      For me, this dress was all wrong. I have a similar dress from a few seasons ago, but the exact same size totally didn't work here -- too tight in waist and hip. It wouldn't work to size up because the armholes were too big and the top gaped under the arms of the cap sleeves. Not crazy about the construction detail that had the belt sitting several inches below the horizontal bodice seam of the empire waist. Not my favorite 1940s retro print, but wouldn't have been a deal breaker if the dress had been comfortable and flattering.

        I felt great in the this dress. It drew attention but I didn't feel exposed. I got the black/sandstone polka dot and what a steal on sale. It's the right balance of business like and sexy because it's structured and not clingy but still creates a slight hourglass. The pattern too, simple but also fun and retro. Plenty of compliments at work - someone joked about whether I went on an interview that day. I guess I can see this as an interview dress at a more casual company. Other reviews said the top was too roomy - I got the 6R, I'm 5'6, 135lbs and I had a little bit of room, but being a 34A/B, it's not weird that I didn't fill out a structured top. I did notice the larger sleeves but the husband thought they worked with the dress. Thanks Boden!

          I bought this for my daughter who is a size 8 and needs a few stylish, "nice" outfits for days at work when she needs to dress up. She is a bit busty and this design is chic and classic for her.

              This dress fits great. The sleeves are "big" as other reviewers have mentioned, but to me, it adds to the style of the dress, a slightly pouffy sleeve. Other than that, it's perfect and classic!

                I ordered this a few weeks ago and it came in mail - I really like the material and that the dress is lined. I cannot try it on, as I am 8 months pregnant and it would not fit me currently, but I cannot wait until I can try this on and wear it! Love the polka dots!

                I purchased this dress during the 80% off deal and thought it would fit simuliar to the earlier,"notch neck" style dress. The chest area was too large,(I am a 36/30/39), and the hip area fit too tight in the Boden 8. A larger size would not work.Thank you Boden for the garment sizing,but unfortunately I had to return.Let my loss be your gain in this style,it is a well made,beautiful khaki flowered pattern.
