      I bought this dress in two colors intending to keep just one... but it is so lovely I'm keeping both! Great design, comfortable to wear. For sizing I am between 4 & 6 and the 6 fit well, wasn't too big. I recommend this dress, especially with a cute skinny belt to finish it off.

      I had a hard time returning this because of the bargain price and the high quality. But the high waist and wide skirt made me look very large in the hips. My husband gave it a thumbs down immediately when i thought i might be imagining it. Too bad. The flowery design is beautiful.

        I love this dress, super comfortable and great classic design. I bought it in two different colors. I wore it to work and on vacation and received many compliments. I bougt a 10R and the waist is a bit big but it fits well in the bust area and a cute belt makes the dress even better. The yellow isn't a true yellow more of a mustard yellow but still very cute!

            The dress was lovely, and the fabric was soft, but there was a notable difference between the inches in the size guide, and the actual size of the dress itself- I ordered a 14, thinking that it would fit in the bust and might need some tailoring in the middle, but when I put it on I didn't even need to unzip it. It was a good cut otherwise, so I exchanged it for a smaller size.

            This dress was so beautiful in the pictures and catalog. I was so excited to get it but the fit was way off! In the other Boden dresses I've ordered a size 8 has fit perfectly. This dress was really large in the bust and the waist was about 6 inches too big! I thought a nice wide belt would help cinch it up but that only added volume to the bust portion of the dress. It felt like wearing a tent. I am returning it and going to try a couple of sizes smaller. I ordered the Broderie Pointe dress with this dress (in the same size 8) and the Broderie fit perfectly. I am not sure why this dress is so large.

              This dress is so lovely and happy. I got it in the size 10 long and it is perfect on my 5'9" pear frame. The blue is just beautiful and the shape is very flattering I think. I will wear this summer, spring and maybe into the fall with tights and boots.

              Great dress!

                The colors on this dress are beautiful and the design is very nice. This would make a great casual dress for summer. It fits true to size, compared with other Boden purchases. Alas, I looked a bit too wide in it and it's going back; the pattern probably didn't help.

                    The instant I put this dress on I loved everything about it - the fit, the feel and the way it moved. I bought the ivory with blue dots. Then after trying it on, I bought the one in blue. I'm 5'11 and slim, so I purchased the 6L. The length is perfect. My blue patent belt goes with it perfectly. I can't help but think this classic, vintage-looking dress would also look adorable in red (hint, hint).
