    This dress is well cut, and solidly made. Fabric is lightweight yet substantial. I am just under 5'4 and weight 135 lb. I got a 8R, which fits perfectly. I am a little thick in the middle, and this dress minimizes my waist. It drapes nicely and feels great on. I got the black and would have ordered in grey or red as well if available.

        This dress would be great for someone hourglass or pear shaped. But that's not me. I have a slender/athletic build but am a little busty and bigger on top. This dress was too tight for me on top and too loose on the bottom. I liked the dress though and seemed well made...

        It is so versatile that I will be able to wear it to work and keep it on for nights out. It's fun, flirty but also professional.

          I cannot say enough about this wonderful simple dress. It fits like a glove, for one thing, in a fabric that is substantial, yet light and cool for California days. The sleeveless design makes it good for dinner engagements, yet it works for anything requiring a conservative, classy presentation. I am very enthusiastic about this finely crafted garment that is sure to last and last and...

          I wear this dress to work, and can easily toss on a shrug or jacket to make it more work-appropriate, and in the evening it can work for a cocktail party too. Super practical and fits PERFECTLY.

            I really liked the dress! However, I put it on, and it was like a trashbag it was so huge! I sent it in to exchange for a smaller size - I'm REALLY hoping it fits this time!!

            This dress is great for someone who has perfect dimensions. I am a bit of a pear shape but not too much, yet this dress was completely loose in the chest area yet very tight in the hips. Also the fabric is very thin. Did not expect it to be so thin. Still I would kept it if it looked better on me. The design is stunning!

            This dress is very nice in person. It's a great color and material. Unfortunately though, it's made for someone with a much larger chest (I'm pretty average). This is the first time I've had this problem with a dress from Boden. I thought about having it taken in but decided for the price I'd send it back.

            Classic...but perhaps matronly

              I loved this dress in the pictures but when I received it I realized I had ordered a size to large. I have an hourglass figure with a little bit more "hip" than "bust" I now realize that Boden dresses are more forgiving of my hips than other brands now and will not order up to accommodate. That said, after receiving the dress I decided not to exchange for a smaller size as the my husband commented the dress seemed a little matronly. But beautifully made and if you were in need of a really basic "with a slight twist" work wear staple - this would be the dress.
