Not for big chested women

      Best Uses

        Let me first say that the dress is quite pretty (I ordered the one that's on the model, the coral floral one). My boyfriend liked it the moment he saw me put it on. However, I am 36D/DD and a Boden size 8 and it was simply too tight at the top which made it very unflattering for me, considering I'm quite conscious as it is. It is my opinion that it would fit better on a woman who has a small chest.

          Lovely fabric and a lovely design, very classy very chic. It fits well. However if you have a big chest like me ( D cup) be careful since it fits very tight at chest. The hip flares some but it doesn't make one look bad.
          Strongly recommend.

                I ordered a 4P and it mostly fit, but gaped a bit too much in the chest and under the arms. I ended up returning it.

                  So cute, I love this dress! I got the green in 8. It's not fitted, but flattering. The A-line skirt is perfect, and the length keeps it from looking dowdy. The pockets add whimsy. I feel I could have modeled it and looked as good as the model! And for the price, a great deal!

                    When I put on the dress my boyfriend liked it a lot. However, it was too tight at the top, and I've been a standard size 8 on Boden with a 36D chest size. It just didn't look right but I really wish it had because the design is very unique and stunning.

                      absolutely beautiful dress that fits like it was made for me. i love the pattern (blues and greens) and the particular "retro" cut. I am a long torsoed size 6 and was worried it might be too short, but it falls just above the knee so is perfect for work. also extremely comfortable, so i anticipate wearing it a lot. i might have to purchase one in another color!

                      I so wanted to love this and I just did not. The fit is fabulous----very flattering and the pattern and cut just smack of the 60s. But the pattern felt too bold for me and I just could not imagine wearing the dress much. I think someone with a bolder sense of style would love this.

                        This is a great cut for my pear-ish body. I got the 6R in the green floral (I'm 5'7" 135 lb) and I would get it in every color if I could (pink is sold out and navy is still too $$).

                        Super flattering. I love the neckline (no cleavage) and the armholes are exactly right. I dnn't think it is too short; hits right at top of knee. Skirt is more A-lined and less straight than the pink floral looks on the catalog model.

                        Unfortunately this arrived on the first rainy day of fall and it will probably live in the closet til next summer. Oh well, that's the price of a great summer clearance sale.

                            The dress is pretty (I got the multi brown/coral one) as my boyfriend attested to it. However, I'm big chested (36D) and the top was just too tight and uncomfortable when I'm typically a size 10 in Boden. I debated ordering a larger size but I doubt the problem would go away as a size 12 would make it too broad around the shoulders. It's a pity but I'm returning it; I wish it would have fit me as it's a nice retro yet fun looking dress!
