    Ordered the navy in my usual size 6. Fits just fine, very easy and comfy. Not an amazing dress, but a good staple I will turn to often. Oh - love the versatility because it can be paired with numerous colors depending on your mood or event!!

    Measurements incorrect...

    I purchased this dress because the measurements indicated that a size 6 L the front would be 39 1/2" long. Upon fitting on the dress it was many inches above my knees, and since I intentionally purchased a long so that it would cover my knees I measured the dress and the front was actually 35 1/2 inches. That 4" difference is a big difference for a tall girl who doesn't want her knees to show at work... so while I love the dress and style I'm going to have to return because a long is apparently not a long and the measurements were inaccurate.

      This is a perfect work dress to throw on and look great. It's classy and not revealing and the bright orange color makes an impression. I'm 5'10" and ordered the long to feel like I'm showing less leg at work. I love this dress!

        I would not normally spend this much for a dress as I work from home so I was hoping I wouldn't like this and could send it back. NOPE. It is so cute and flattering the way it fits that I will have to find places to wear it because it is MINE. I bought the black with pearl stripes and can't wait to wear it out to dinner with my over the knee boots this fall. True to size 12 and a great length.

          This is a very nice dress. The color (orange) and the fit are beautiful. In fact, it fits perfectly. I have had many, many compliments on it.

                Perfect with tights and boots. The fabric is thick enough to not show VPL, and the style is cute.

                  This dress has a very flattering fit with a shaped top and full skirt. The material is comfortable and durable. The orange color is a little brighter than I expected, but still very pretty.

                    I love the Libby dress so I decided to try this season's ponte dress. I have trouble with how high the waists on Boden dresses are, so I ordered up a size from a 4L to a 6L, which worked with the Libby dress. Somehow the waist on this dress was still a good three inches above my natural waist. Also, as a previous reviewer noted, the side zipper makes the whole dress hang unevenly, and it is especially evident at the waist line. I wanted to love this dress (the blue color is beautiful) but I had to send it back.

                      I received so many compliments when I wore this dress. It is not too dressy but dressy enough for work. If you purchase the orange dress, please be aware that the orange is much brighter in person.
