Beautiful but "Petite" is too Petite

I am 5'1", 100 lbs. and purchased this in the 2 Petite, blue floral. The dress is gorgeous and flows beautifully; however, it had an almost maternity look on me because the waist band was under my bust and the dress was way too short.

I will send it back for the 2R, however, again I am 5' 1" and feel Boden needs to add some length to their petite line of clothing. I've had this problem before with coats (although the sleeve length in "petite" has been perfect).

Having said all this, the fabric and print are worth the return hassle.

I looked at this dress many times before I finally ordered it, and somehow missed the back, where there are a series of buttons. When I tried it on I had a very hard time reaching behind to close the buttons. Two popped off at some point. The skirt was not as full as it looked online. But I've ordered an exchange for a size up, and hopefully it will be easier to put on and fit better.

        This dress looked great on my hourglass figure. Highlighted best bits, minimized flaws. However, I wish the shade of yellow had more closely resembled the website photo. Too garish for me. Also, other reviews are accurate regarding the huge armholes this dress has. I would only wear with a cardigan if I were keeping.

          I bought this dress in the blue and pink floral from the summer season after the fall colors had come in. I felt frumpy in my black and white basic last Easter and when I saw this, I couldn't resist. The colors are gorgeous. Because it has a fitted waist, I ordered a size larger than I usually wear in Boden as I am thicker through my waist. That was a mistake as it was too big all over. I exchanged it for my regular size 2 and although it is a tad snug in the waist, it is not uncomfortable and it fits perfectly everywhere else. My granddaughter said I look like a princess in this dress. I will wear this for special occasions. The lines of the dress are absolutely stunning and flattering. Extremely well made. I am always pleased with Boden quality. And very happy that returns and exchanges are so easy.

          I fell in love with the Selina dress a couple of years ago but couldn't bring myself to purchase one at full price. When it went on sale, I couldn't resist and bought it in two patterns. Not only are the colors and prints stunning, but the fit is virtually perfect (I am 5'7", 140 lbs, athletic build). The dress is extremely well made, and the fabric is nice and cool in the summer, though it is prone to wrinkles. The first time I wore the dress, I mindlessly sprayed perfume on it, and there were little oil spots all along the front. Knowing how tough oil spots are, I was worried they wouldn't come out, but dry cleaning did the trick. Overall, this is one of the best Boden purchases I've ever made!

            Based upon reviews, I had ordered 1 size smaller but found I was too busty for it and could barely zip it. Returned for my normal size and it is just right.

            I really love this dress and received many compliments while wearing it. However, after one use, two of the buttons fell off the back closure basically rendering the dress unwearable. I called Boden and received phenomenal customer service. The associate offered to replace the dress for free and it shipped very quickly. But I wore the new dress to a wedding and within one hour one of the buttons fell off the back of the brand new dress! This leads me to believe that there is a quality issue with this dress and that the buttons need to be reinforced. It's a shame because it really is lovely.

            I had been eyeing this dress for some time, and when it went on sale, I decided to give it a try. The material and quality are both lovely (I tried the light blue floral), but sadly - as noted by other reviewers - something is very wrong with the bust/waist area. On me (5'11" tall, 34A bust), my usual 4L in dresses was a "fit," but the waistline was weirdly off... It was too high in the front and comparatively low in the back. This created the appearance of trying to hide a new or recent pregnancy - not flattering! The problem was compounded by a strange poofiness in the bust and two dart-stitches that ballooned the rear. Sadly, this one had to go. Johnnie, please improve the Selina!
