Olivia Dress

WH625
(Was $158.00 ) now $94.80 to $110.60

Versatile enough to whisk you from work to cocktails and flattering enough to make you do a little dance of joy. The fabric covered back buttons add a sweet detail.

    I was hoping this would be another Boden staple for work but sadly it's going back. It didn't fit me anywhere. I'm 5'10 and 115lbs. I bought the 2 which is my typical size. It was very tight in some places and incredibly loose in others making it look all bunched up. What a shame.

    This dress is meant to be very fitted/tailored. I really like the idea and I think it would have been beautiful if I had been willing to have it altered. I ordered a 6L. I'm 5'5" 125lbs and a 34b. Usually a size 6 in Boden fits me well. Even wearing my most optimistic bra there was too much room in the bust - it poofed out - clearly it wanted a little more to fill it out. Since it was an item I would probably only wear occasionally (I don't dress up that often) I decided that it wasn't worth it to have it altered. But I loved the back buttons and the fabric....

    Well made, but too snug in hips

    Beautifully made, but way too tight in the hips. I have 7 Boden dresses, all size 6 and this one was so snug around the hips I took it off after 5 seconds. If you have narrow hips - get it! If you have curves (like me), don't bother. Bummer - I really like the style and the sale price! It's on its way back….

    This is a gorgeous dress but I had to return it. My typical size 10R fit perfectly on top but was way too tight on the bottom. It bunched up when I walked and wasn't flattering. It was perfect on top though, and I was heartbroken to have to return such a knockout dress.

    I ordered this dress to wear to work. It's very well made and the print is beautiful...the pictures on the site don't do it justice. I did return however, because while the top fit well the skirt was too snug on me. I do intend to reorder in a larger size.

    Beautiful dress on the hanger. On me...not so much. Something's off with regard to the bust. The fabric puffed out in an awkward way. I wanted so badly for this to be that perfect summer dress. It wasn't.

      Fit is a little tight

      This dress is well made and a very pretty color and pattern. Unfortunately, the fit is fairly snug, especially in the hips. I have many Boden clothes and dresses and have always ordered US size 4 (5'6" 120 lbs) with good fit. While the chest fit well, the dress was too tight through the hips and I had to return it.

      Sophistication that Shimmers

      I absolutely love this dress and think it's one of the secret gems of the season. (Do not understand the lower ratings) Firstly, the fabric is substantial and thick enough to smooth beautifully over any bulges...seriously. The lining is also substantial, making a slip or spanx unnecessary. It's a gorgeous cotton sateen that subtly shimmers. It's so beautifully constructed - the faux covered buttons down the back are exquisitely done. The side zipper makes it a bit of a squeeze to get on/off, but the fabric resists wrinkling and it all smooths out perfectly once on. The sleeves are JUST right - summery, yet modest.

      I have it in the green and cream print, and pair it with the Leaf Cropped Cardigan for air-conditioned rooms. I wear long pearls and pearl earrings - and it's dressy and sophisticated. The quality of fabric (and that shimmer) would make this an easy go-to for weddings.

      Seriously - if you go with the measurement guide and can deal with the side zipper, I don't see how you would regret giving this dress a try. Worth it.
