    This dress is absolutely stunning. The folding at the waist and the pleated neckline are gorgeous. Fits like a glove, too. The wool is very warm so I haven't been able to wear it yet, but it will be a staple for work.

      I purchased this dress primarily to wear to work, but it is quite versatile. I recommend pairing with a pair of wayfarers and leopard print shoes. My only negative comment is that the fabric tends to gather a little in the front. Depending on your body type this may not be very flattering, but for the most part I did not think it was that noticeable. It fit very well otherwise and will be perfect for Fall.

          I will get lots of use out of this dress. It won't go out of style, yet it is also quite chic. It highlights the waist and shows off a woman's figure subtly. I am 5'7" and weigh 146; the 8L US fits me perfectly.

            I really like this dress, especially the length. It's very stylish for being as modest as it is. I am quite small on top so had to take in the front pleat just a tiny bit--an easy fix. It's definitely made to order for women with b-cup or more.

            As soon as I tried on this dress, I knew it was a winner. The design is form-fitting but the design (ruching?) hides figure flaws without requiring me to wear Spanx. The sleeves are good for my cold office too. The light weight wool is so comfortable and the colorful lining is a great detail. An 8R was perfect for me (5'7", 150 lbs.)

            I loved this dress, how well it was made, and the design and details of the front and waistband. I didn't like how wide the cuffs of the sleeves were, it seemed quite large on my arms.

            I bought this dress in black to wear to a funeral. But...I have worn it to a funeral, a party, to work, out to dinner. I love it! It fits me so well and I can change the personality of the outfit with accessories. It is wool but it is soft and flowing and not heavy at all. I am 6'0" and 180lbs. not as young as I used to be and this dress looks classic and hides flaws that I have. I love it that I wear a size 14L.

            This dress was such a disappointment . I bought the red and it is way too bright . I usually love Boden's bright colors but this was overboard . The fit of the bodice was awful . I just looked so big and frumpy . I am 5''3" and weigh 107lbs so definitely the dress and not me ! It did seem to be the right size but just a weird design with the pleats .

              This dress could be so beautiful. The fabric is very nice, soft with good weight. The fit is PERFECT in my usual size 6. Elegant, not to revealing and I love the neckline and sleeve length. I ordered the red and the color is a blindingly bright, neon, fluorescent red...almost painful to your eyes. I might exchange for the black, but what I really wanted was a red dress. Boden, please!!! Your colors are just too loud lately, it makes the clothing look cheap and unsophisticated. The fit and fabric are so nice that I'm going to think about it a little longer. Would be so much better in a deeper, jewel tone red. This red is a huge disappointment.
