    I almost sent this back because I felt the stitching design had too much of a Star Trek look, but it was comfortable and I needed a dress for a conference just a couple days later. Desperate, I packed it. Having worn it, I don't regret it. It is amazing! I know that I will wear this dress often.

    It's cozy, but not too hot to wear in the summer, so seasonally more versatile than it might look. The fabric is substantial, so hides any flaws or lumps. It has enough shape to not look frumpy. I love it!

      This dress never wowed me in the catalogue or one the website, but boy am I glad I gave it a shot! This will be a new favorite. The A line is so comfortable, and I love the ribbed texture. This is as simple and flattering as they come. It washed well and was ready to wear with a minimum of ironing. I love the large, deep pockets, and receive so many compliments on this dress. The blue color is beautiful. This dress hits just at the knee. I wear a Boden size 6 at 5'1", 130 lbs.

      Very pretty, but a touch too boxy

        As a pear shape- this hid rather than flattered my figure, and I didn't particularly mind this aspect, but I would recommend going down a size. The overall effect is that you're draped in thicker fabric with a conservative cut- perfect for the professional world. I think the look would do best on those in their 30s and up.

                    Love this dress! Fit is perfect. I actually sized down on this dress, normally I am a 6 or 6P but went went with the 4 and it fits like a glove. Great for the office or for a cocktail party.

                      It's been hit and miss with Boden dresses but this was a HIT. I feel like I look just like the model when I wear this paired with pointy heels! :) I was worried it would be too short for me (somewhat conservative) so I also ordered the longer length but it was definitely too long and frumpy looking in the longer length. For reference, I am 5'3", 115 lbs and the 4R fit perfect, and is about 2 inches above my knee.

                      I bought it in black (the other colors in my size were also sold out at the time) which I feel is a classic color that I can wear both to work, and after work, which coincidentally is what I did today. Thanks Boden!
