Inconsistent Sizing

        I got this in the pink tweed earlier in the season, and simply adore it. A perfect 5. So when my size came up again, after much monitoring of the web site, I snatched the black and white tweed one. Such a disappointment -- although it's the same exact size and length according to the tag and both are tweeds, they do not fit the same. This one was too tight in hips, and somehow just wrong on the bodice, nothing lay right. I'm wondering if it was mis-sized and is actually a size smaller...perhaps that is why it was a pop back? I am still hoping the dress is brought back next year with more tweed options.

          I wore this to attend a ceremony that required a dressy but conservative look. I purchased it in black and dressed it up with accessories and it was perfect for the occasion.

            Too large across the back, chest, and shoulders and hips and a cut a little long. I am a petite/slim 5' 5" and the Boden clothes seem to e cut bigger and bigger every year. I always order size 2 and petite where offered and am finding fewer and fewer items that fit.

              This is a stylish and comfortable dress, I just felt it did not fit me well. It was too loose around the waist resulting in a dowdy look for me. I am 5'7" and 128Lbs. I absolutely love Boden clothing, and this dress does not disappoint in quality! It just is not a good fit for me.

              "Black" is Just Black--No Tweed Effect

                  I ordered this in black and it is just a solid black wool dress. I already have several solid black, conservative dresses but was hoping for something with texture and good weight for the fall and winter. The weight on this is definitely for cooler weather, but the fabric had no real design or interest. There was no tweed design on the black so I returned it.

                      Love this shift! I'm returning it but only because the colors aren't great on me (the gray tweed is more white/black in person, which doesn't suit me)--and in hopes that there will be new colors next year!

                        This dress looked fabulous in the photo and I was so eager to receive it. But the fit was very disappointing. I'm 5'2" and ordered the size 2. It was too short at the hem, and the waist was about three inches above the navel. The fabric was a bit itchy. I was disappointed, but returned it. I'm a loyal Boden customer so will try again!

                          This is a beautiful dress. A little large in the hips but paired with a skinny belt it's perfect.
