Lovely but too large.

    Lovely design but the yellow color was a little lighter with a green tint than that pictured. Also, it recommended my size to be 4R but it was wildly too large. I'm afraid at 5'2" and 105 pounds with a small bust that even the 2R would have been too large. As long as you double check your measurements it should be okay though.

      From the moment I saw the colorful binding on the inner seams, I loved the dress - and I loved it even more after putting it on. I'm a standard size 8 and the fit was perfect. I bought it in the navy blue, which is flattering and not too dark. The weight of the fabric makes this dress hang beautifully and the classic styling is pure Audrey Hepburn. Boden at its best!

          I got this in yellow. The color is beautiful! I got so many compliments the first time I wore it to the office. It fits great in the top and flares out in just the right way so it's truly flattering. I was worried that you'd be able to see seams or undergarments through the light color, but the fabric is very heavy and it's lined so it looks great. You won't regret buying this dress!

              SO gorgeous, lovely fabric, and very well made. I am busty though, and the girls just looked off in the taupe top half of the dress. Returned reluctantly.

                Classic lines, nice details like the little pockets. The A-line skirt is ever-so-slightly A line, so it is more forgiving than a pencil, but not as frumpy as sometimes A-line skirts are. I have not yet washed it, so I wonder how the knit will hold up. But it is a heavy knit fabric that holds its shape well so far and that I suspect will do so post-wash. While the fabric is sturdy and somewhat heavy, I have found it breaths in the humidity that I have worn it.

                  I got this dress in navy to wear to work….I loved it so much I then ordered it in the black & cream color. It is super comfortable, yet professional! It was a perfect fit and I received a ton of compliments on both! Love the bit of stretch! I am 5"5-5"6 and 138 lbs, but larger busted. The 6 fits me perfectly! I would buy it in other colors if it were available!!

                  I love this dress but had to alter it slightly as there was some flappy material at the top --as if the extra fabric for bust was too high. Not sure if this is because I am tall or? At any rate, the dress is lovely and was worth the alteration cost for me. It's quite heavy weight which is unusual in a sleeveless dress--definitely not for wearing outside on a hot day but perfect for someone like me who works in an air conditioned office but is very active and gets hot wearing sleeves. It would also be ideal with a jacket over it.

                  As noted in my title, the dress is more of a dark navy than a blue.

                    This dress is a beauty! The cut is superb and very flattering. The top is very fitting and figure complementing. The material is of amazing quality without being to heavy and falls nicely.
                    I am thinking about buying this again in a different color.
