The Flowershow Dress in Blue Spot is lovely & girly and reminds me of a warm spring day. It will be practical for work or church & for special events like weddings or parties. The fit is a tiny bit big in the waist, but it won't pinch when I have dessert or a second piece of wedding cake!

The only thing I don't love is that it will be a bear to iron and the woven cotton fabric will need it!

    I bought this dress in both the china blue and ivory dotty spot prints, unsure which I would prefer, and ended up keeping both! I love the shape, the soft, floaty fabric, and the fact that it is machine washable. I am pear-shaped and therefore vary between two sizes depending on the tightness of a design's skirt; going with the smaller size was definitely the right call here. My only minor nits to pick are that it wrinkles a bit and doesn't have pockets (as so many full-skirted Boden dresses do).

      After reading the other reviews, I decided to take a chance on this dress. I sized up, but don't believe it was necessary. The waist has a lot of room and the swish of the skirt is nice. The problem is with the shoulders/ cap sleeve, I just could not get comfortable. The dress is of nice quality and the print is lovely though, so I think I will keep it and have a tailor adjust the top. Overall, very good dress for the sale price!

        The fabric has sheen to it which makes it ilook better. I purchased two colors and both are beautiful. Extremely comfortable yet classy.

        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!
