    This is a very casual, everyday-type dress. I thought it looked best with a casual sandal or thong shoe. I tried wearing it with high wedge sandals as shown on line and thought it looked better with more casual accessories. Great for the beach or just running around.

      When it came, there were several places where the fabric was puckering. Although it was light and comfortable, the cross neck would not lie flat. This wasn't because of fit problems but because it had been sewn so that there was a strange bunch of fabric on one side of the cross.

        I love this dress. It is incredibly comfortable, and perfect for the summer. It fits well, and is a flattering cut. It has held up well after a few washings. I would love one in each color!

          This is a lovely dress for hanging around with friends or family. I wear it around the house when my sweetheart is visiting to look pretty, but still be comfortable snuggling up. Not something I'd wear to work or out for the evening, but perfect for a picnic or running errands. Perfect to look pretty during your everyday life. Great length, easy fit.

            As a school librarian I try hard not to fit the stereotype of the frumpy librarian. This dress is neat, cute and a perfect fit. I liked it so well I went back and bought it in another print.

              I've had a number of similar cotton dresses over the years and this is by far the best one I've owned. It is lightweight and perfect for summer. It is thick enough to hide lumps and fell nicely on my imperfect body.

                I have this dress in three patterns and wear them mainly for work. It would be totally fine for a brunch or anything else, but since they're soooooo comfortable it's nice to have on at the office. The prints are very pretty. I ordered the pink fern and sent that one back for blue because I found the pink too bright, it looked more red to me in the photos but it's definitely a bright pink. The aqua blue fern is perfect. Great color. The only down side is that the neckline is a bit low. Call me prim & proper, but I don't like for any cleavage to show especially at work, and this can be a bit challenging, I think I will just add a few stitches to keep the v-part together.

                  I have several Boden dresses, tops, and skirts that I love. This dress, however, was a huge disappointment. For reference I'm 5"9', 135 lbs, and wear a U.S. size 6. In this dress I ordered a size 6L. The shoulder seams were in the right place and the length was great at just below the knee.

                  First off, let me say that this is an incredibly comfortable dress -- seriously, it's like the dress version of yoga pants.

                  Unfortunately that's the only positive thing I can say about the dress. The wrap top design at the top can't be worn without a cami underneath. If you bend or twist wrong you'll have a massive "wardrobe malfunction" (although that might be a positive for any nursing moms...). I was pretty disappointed since one of the positive things about Boden tops or dresses is that usually they don't require a cami underneath. The shape and cut are also way off. The best thing I can say about it is that it looks kind of like a cross between a house dress and a hospital gown.

                  In the end I ended up keeping the dress to wear as a nightgown (did I mention that it's ridiculously comfortable?!). I'd already exchanged it for a different pattern hoping that would help and didn't feel like sending it back again. It's great for a nightgown, but I wouldn't wear it in public.

                      This dress is cute and would be an easy day dress. I thought it ran large so I returned it and ordered the next size down.
