    Fabric is delicate, but oh so pretty. It has a nice weight to it, so it's strange the fabric is so delicate. Love it though. Have the green dress and the orange dress. Fun, different, and love to wear for its comfort and style.

      I just love the dress. Fits well and the design is adorable. I am 5'3" and 128 lbs and a 6P fits just right. I love the pockets and wish all dresses have them.

        Love this dress. I love the retro pattern and it is soooo comfy! I first bought the size 12 and had to return it because it was too big. The size 10 fit perfect and I love it!

          Great fit, nicely hides my bigger hips and shows well my slim waste. I'm size 10L and I bought size 10R on sale. I like it shorter for sunny summer in Colorado. I will wear it with lightweight sweater in the fall. Beautiful colors, not too bright. Well sawn and I like the texture of the fabric. Not too thick with liner for a summer.

            The green floral pattern in this dress has a peachy accent color in the print, not white or off-white as it shows on my monitor. This was a disappointment especially in a large print where the accent colors are prominent. I wish Boden would describe the colors of the dress in its product descriptions. I don't do peach, so back it went. The fit and quality of the dress were very good; this would have been a nice casual summer day dress.

              This is my fun choice for a late summer day, just the right dress to transition me into fall, not too glaring, not sun-yellow. The colors nevertheless grab attention. I love the pockets, which add a casual touch. I can wear this dress to work, to an informal dinner and all through the weekend -- it's truly versatile. I absolutely love it.

                  This dress is cute, if you are looking for a retro, Mad Men style design. The cut is flattering, especially for those of us with hips. My only complaint was that the colors were almost shockingly bright, even brighter than they appear online. I ordered the blue/green version and was hoping I could wear it at work, paired with a darker cardigan to balance it out. Unfortunately the colors were too bright for a conservative office environment.

                    The multi green is darling. I love the retro style. I also like the fit. I usually have to have dresses taken in, because the armholes are to big, but this one fits just right.

                      I loved the green floral design the first time I saw it, but I knew I couldn't justify the price for a summer dress. Then when it came on clearance, I snapped it up! When it finally arrived and tried it on, I immediatel ordered the orange floral too before the clearance price disappeared. It will be hot here in N. California this week. I can't wait to wear them.

                      For reference, I am between a Boden 12L and 10L at 5'8" and the 10L hits just at the knee. The bodice is a little snug, but everthing else about it the fit is perfect. Glad I went with the smaller size, otherwise the hips would be awkwardly big.

                            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.
