    I love this dress! It is super comfy and looks to be great quality. It's a thick ponte material and drapes really nicely. I haven't washed it yet so I can't attest to how it will hold up to wear. I did not have any issues with the zipper. My only wish is that Boden offered the dress in other colors.

      I had high hopes for this dress but it is poorly made. As others have mentioned, the zip doesn't work. I was unable to get it past the waist so couldn't try it on. Too bad. It looked like i would have liked it if it was wearable.

      Doesn't Work!!

        This is a great color, and a nice and versatile design but the zipper, as mentiond by others, is a BIG issue. It took me forever to get the zip down so I could try it on. Once it was on I was unable to zip it myself. Later that evening my daughter was over and I asked her to help. She couldn't budge it either. Back it goes.

            I passed this dress by on the Boden website many times, until it went on clearance. I'm so pleased I gave this one a chance. It has a very interesting 1940's flair in the cut of the shoulders, and the deep forest green is a color you don't see often anymore. This is a very flattering dress that looks great with gold accessories. I had no difficulties with the zipper as some other reviewers reported. I am a size 6 at 5'1", 130 lbs.

              This is the perfect 3 season dress. I now have it in 3 colors and know I will be wearing them all for years to come. Top fits well and bottom provides a bit of camouflage for a bit of a belly. Always get compliments when I wear this one.

                I ordered this dress in 16L in green and I love the style. It has such a nice thick fabric that it hides all the wobbly bits. I paired it with tall brown socks and brown boots and get compliments all of the time.

                  Formal dress, heavy material, can run big, like the V neck to make it more sexy.

                    Conservative dress, but the V neck gives it a little sexyness. Thick material, not bulky at the bottom.

                      This dress is just gorgeous -- flattering and comfortable. Could be worn to work or out to dinner. The cut is amazing and the wine color beautiful. I assumed I'd send this one back, since it's already quite warm in the SW, but the fabric really breathes.
