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.

    Great dress, bad buttons

    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!

      I purchased in the blue pattern which I really liked - color was wonderful and pattern was floral-like without screaming flowers. Ruched waistband is very flattering. I initially bought this dress in a 14 Regular but it was a good 2" above my knee (I'm a little under 5'10"). I was very disappointed and thought I would have to return until I saw that I could get it in a long. Tada! Perfect length for me. So thrilled Boden offers this for those of us who feel above the knee is just too short. I now order in long all the time.

        This is my first purchase from Boden. I have loved their styles - but was hesitant to order online. When I saw the sale - I decided to get the Selina dress in the blue-multi. The size chart suggested that I order a 12 - but I usually buy 14s because I have a broad back. I ordered a 14R and a 12L. The 14R was a little big and I didn't like the proportions. The 12L fit like a glove and the "Long" hit exactly at the knee (I'm 5'7"). Very pretty and comfortable and the fabric is lovely. A great dress for a garden party or summer wedding. Could be dressed up or down. Will definitely buy more from Boden ;-)

          I ordered the blue floral dress in my usual 6L and like everything I order from Boden, it fits perfectly (I am 5'7" and it hits just below the knee) The fabric is perfectly swishy, the dress is ladylike and rather comfortable. I am hoping the pink gets reduced further so I could add another to my wardrobe!

              Oh how I love this dress! It is perfect in every way except, as I find myself saying with all Boden dresses, please make a 2L. The fabric is drapey and beautiful, the style is lovely and very complimentary. I have received so many compliments on this dress - someone even told me I looked like I was 18 in it, and I promise you I am decades beyond (perhaps I should mention this was an over-flatter-er? But still…). It is a must-have!
