    I love this dress. It fits loosely, but as I am not that skinny I feel that it hides my flaws well. I wear a size 10. I've gotten many commpliments when I wear the dress.

    Nice dress, don't like the print

      I got the multi pink fern. I have this dress (or something very similar) every year and love them. This year the print is not nice. I love color but actually think this one the colors don't go well together and in something as substantial as a dress its grating. The fit is good and its flattering, but wish the print was different.

        For my shapely US 8/10, 5'3" figure (weight fairly proportional), this dress failed to inspire me. While I dress stylishly most of the time, for hot, summer weather I tend to dress more casually, and I wanted this as a dress to wear on truly hot days. I really like the fabric and it seems like a perfect summer dress to keep cool in.

        What it looked like on me is a dowdy frock my grandmother wore back in the 1970s. The back has gathering that poofs-out over the rear end, and even my husband thought that looked funny. Another drawback for me is that it's machine washable as the description states, but has to lay flat to dry.

        Just didn't fit well

        I bought a Boden day dress in this lightweight fabric two years ago and still wear it constantly -- the fabric is thin, but it wears like iron. And I love how fast it drip dries -- great for travel or the beach. The only thing I didn't like about the old one was the too-open neckline (kept showing bra straps), so I was excited to see the higher neckline on this one.

        But the shape of this one is different, somehow -- Boden usually fits me very well, but this dress was kind of roomy on top and tight across the thighs, so no point in a larger size.

        Not a typical well-made Boden dress

        I ordered the yellow and pink. The yellow one arrived first, which made me decide to return the pink one as well. Let me tell you why: the dress is pretty in the picture, perfect for summer. Yes, the fabric is soft and light, some people commented that fabric paper-thin,but I think it is not that bad - the fabric is not see-through, so it is quite breathable in hot summer days. The design is odd. Boden might try to make this dress a loose-fit, it is so loose that the waist line is at least 4 inches more than my actual waist. I like the pattern and color, but no, this is not a day dress, it is rather a maternity dress.

        I loved the print and style of this dress but ended up returning it because it was a little big in the lower back area and the length was "off". It needed to be shorter or longer because the length of it was just not flattering on me.

            I bought the size 4. This dress didn't do it for me. The material is paper. Plus, the arm holes are so small it's hard to get it on. Not the best of material, it's so stiff- this may of course improve with washing. I don't feel the quality is up to Boden's standards. I expect more!
            Like I said in my headline just not my cup of tea!

            Ripped on First Washing

            The very first time I washed the dress, it ripped at the breezy hemstitch. Not sure if it is worth replacing since it is gauzy and would likely do so again...
