Flattering!

Pros

  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Tricky Zipper

Best Uses

    I am charmed at the flattering fit of this dress. The thick material is a bonus, and so are the attractive neckline and sleeve length. The one problem is trying to get the zipper over the velvet band at the waist. This is hard to do even when you're not wearing the dress. I finally figured out that I needed to zip it just to the waistline, put it on, turn it around so the zipper is in the front, tug at the zipper to get it to zip, and then turn the dress around properly and finish zipping. A bit of a chore, but at the sale price it seems this nifty dress is still worth it.

    I was looking for some new work wear and love red, so I thought I'd give this dress a try. While the top was nice, I agree with other reviewers that the velvet waist piece is the wrong color and the design of the bottom causes it to pooch out which is very unflattering. I'm just disappointed that I didn't realize I wasn't getting free returns cause I just paid $5 to try on a dress plus the hassle of sending it back.

      This is a lovely knit dress with a dark velvet waistband that sits lower on the waist than many Boden dresses. The ballet neckline is very flattering and layered so it stays in place and doesn't roll. The fit was more flattering to my pear shape than I expected and the knit material is both dressy and comfortable.

        I've never ordered a Boden dress in a ponte knit and was hesitant--worried I'd snag it on the first wear. At the sale price, it was worth a try and I'm so glad I did. Now that I've seen the thick, expensive knit, I'll likely be back for another in a different style. Boden's quality shows through--great material and seaming. This dress can be dressed up or down for work or a night out. It's extremely comfortable. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that, as others noted, the pockets do stick out a bit, but it's nothing a little tailoring can't fix (particularly at such a great price). Although I generally wear a 2R, I went with a 4P, since I didn't want it to be as fitted, and I'm glad I did. It follows my curves without being clingy, and the shorter length worked better, since I'm 5' 3".

        Size Tag horribly wrong

          Best Uses

            Likely a quality control issue, but this dress was way smaller than the size marked. A size 12 dress should not have the garment's waist measure 27" or hips 36". I'm guessing that this dress had been sent back for size issues already, (the hem stitching slit had been popped open and the threads were hanging loose), wish it had been caught before it came to me.

              This is a great dress. I work in IT and spend much of my working day in casual apparel - but occasionally need to dress it up for important meetings. This dress is the ticket. Looks great. Like really great. Very comfortable - key for my work and my bike commute. Love this - wish I had it in every colour!

              The velvet band gives a nice accent but is very hard to zip up in that area on the back. Even when the dress is not worn, the zipper is hard to zip up where the band is. If you are in between sizes, go for the size up because this dress seems to be very fitted. The red is very simple but a pretty color.

              My male coworkers call me "The Lady in Red" when I wear this dress. The look is adorable, but the tulip top is a bit off. Also, it's difficult to zip or unzip over the velvet in the back.

              Did not fit

                The fit on this was just all wrong. The collar had too much material and did not lay flat. There was also too much material below the waist band causing an unflattering pooch there. The pockets were a nice touch but seemed to add too much bulk at the waist. It seemed well made but not for me. Also, I had a terrible time getting it to zip over the velvet waist band and probably would have sent it back solely due to that frustration. Loved the material though and the juxtaposition of the velvet band and the knit dress.
