Gorgeous Dress, Wrong Fit for Me

Best Uses

This dress is gorgeous... the material, the print (the blue with polka dots) and I wanted to LOVE it... but the fit was all wrong for me. I am a size 12US and I have a chest and hips. The fit of the dress was a too high and it puffed out at my hips, making me look larger. I think it would be best for a more petite figure. Definitely meets the expectations for beauty and quality that I have come to expect with Boden.

    I know a lot of reviews said this dress made them look frumpy. So sad for them, I say. I bought my usual size 6 in Boden clothes and it fits almost perfectly, The top could be a tad smaller but I will be wearing a cardigan with it anyway, so, as Julia Child would say, "Who's to know....?"
    The fabric is really nice and soft, another bonus is you can twirl in it. Who doesn't want to twirl.
    I gave it four start just because the top was just a bit to bit.

    I tried ordering this dress once before but needed to exchange it for a smaller size and ended up switching colors from yellow to blue- both of which are gorgeous. What kept me coming back to this dress, even though the fit was a little tricky for me, was the amazing, light fabric. It's a lovely color and just looks so nice on. As I said, this dress does seem to run a bit on the larger side so size down if you want a more fitted look! All is all, a really sweet dress.

      I wasn't sure about this dress when I was trying it on because of the shape, but once I zipped it I really liked it. The fabric is great and the fit and shape is perfect for my body. I can see where it might not work for everyone. It was true to size.

        I love the fifties styling of this dress. The fitted waist emphasizes my figure! The only thing I'd change: the fabric could use some stretch. I do a lot of Swing dancing and this dress would be perfect for dance socials; however, my arms and shoulders feel as if they'd be restricted with certain dance moves. I hope this dress will be brought back in 2015 with a stretchier fabric!

          Needs a belt

              I tried this on after I got it and couldn't decide whether to return it or keep it- it fits well true to size- not clingy, which I like. But it flares out quite a bit and I felt like it needed a belt to cinch things in a bit and define the waist. It was also just a tad too short (I like dresses to fall at or below the knees and this was a couple inches above). If you have a cute belt and like the shorter length, go for it!
              Also- I'm 5'7", 160 lbs, curvy build, and the 10 fit good.

              This vintage inspired yellow frock is a real picture. It has excellent fabric and feels really light and comfy. The pleats in the neckline are just delicate and the skirt is a great length. I think it runs a bit large though, so maybe size down? Still, a beautiful dress!

                i'm 5'2", 135 lbs, usually a size 6P at boden. The dress is gorgeous. I got both the blue and multi colored dress and the colors are exactly like the picture. The fit overall was very good but the bust was slightly on the big side but since it's rouched at the neck... it doesn't bother me so much. I'm very excited to wear this to both work and on dates with the fiance!

                  I had looked at this dress all season and when it went on sale I was so thrilled that my size was still available. It fits perfectly and the print is beautiful. This is a keeper for a long time.
