I wanted to like this dress so much. The color was beautiful and the embroidery was so lovely. However, the fit was just off for me. I have other dresses from Boden in the same size I ordered here - 4R - and this one fit completely different. It was tight in the bust and loose in the hips. I have a smaller bust as well - 32C - so tight busts aren't normally as issue. Gorgeous dress, but just not for me.

    I have the yellow and it is probably my favorite dress I own. The material is soft and pretty and moves well. It's comfortable enough to wear as an everyday dress with flats but looks great with heels for a wedding/event.

    The 4 instead of 5 star is because it does wrinkle easy but I'm okay with it.

    I bought a 8L and could have gotten a way with a 6L. I'm still working on some baby weight and this dress is flattering for someone with a little belly.

        This gorgeous dress is a perfect marriage between viscose and cotton. The outside (viscose) feels silky soft to the touch and has lovely detailing. The lining is a cool, soft cotton. My normal size fit and the shape is flattering. I bought the white with green embroidery and love the combination. Washing was easy...cool, delicate, line dry and it was still nice and soft.

          Love this dress from the moment I tried it on. I am typically a size 6 on top and 8 on bottom. The size 6 in this dress is a perfect, flattering fit. Beautiful design and long enough to be appropriate but not frumpy. A new favorite!

            Love this dress, its extremely flattering. This was my first Borden order ever and I think I am hooked. I ordered the blue and I love the color and how it lays. The only con is that the little threads on the material can easily catch on rings and such so one does need to take care. I have only worn it once and it was very comfortable. I have yet to see how it wears through the wash but the material seems extremely nice and the dress is clearly well-made. Love!

              Made a splash wearing this dress to a summer wedding. I would recommend to anyone looking for a stylish & comfy dress that seems appropriate for casual, as well as somewhat formal, affairs. Soft, durable fabric that doesn't wrinkle. I wish it came in petite sizes- my only "complaint."

                According to the size calculator, I should order this dress in a size 6, which I did....it was huge! I exchanged it for a size 4 and it fits perfectly!

                This dress was a big disappointment! The cut and design are very nice and the embroidery detail was the reason I bought the dress. However, the fabric does not only look cheap it is awful, i.e. after one washing big holes appeared on the front side! The zipper is another disappointment – it does not lay flat.

                  I am so happy with this purchase! The other commenters mentioned the fabric looks cheap, which I don't necessarily agree with, but I do think it is fairly delicate/could pull easily. I am 5'8" and it hits at a flattering length about 2-3 inches above my knee. It looks like it comes from a more expensive designer, and every person I have seen so far today has made a comment on how cute the dress is. I bought the blue and white version and the color is so pretty. Such a classic summer look!
