Clerkenwell Dress

WQ059
(Was $138.00 ) now $82.80

It’s the full skirt that makes this structured, ponte roma dress so stylish. An exposed back zip adds a little attitude.

I'm on the fence on this one. I purchased the fig in an 8L (5'8" and 137 lbs). Most of my other Boden dresses are 6L, but there weren't any left in that size. I read the other reviews about too much material on top and tight arms and high waist, but decided to give it a shot anyway at the bargain sale price. My arms are pretty thin, so it is ok for me, but is definitely fitted in that area. The waist wasn't too high either, probably because I got the 8 instead of the 6. There is a little too much material on top so its sits lower on my chest and a little further out on my shoulders than on the model. Again, this could be a size 8 vs. 6 issue and is still ok. My issue is that it is not so flattering in the stomach area. The skirt doesn't seem to flare out in the right place on me so that it shows a little blip of belly and then goes out. I think with a control top tight, it will be fine, but I'm still deciding. The material is top quality and as with all Boden products, it is well made. But ultimately, I can just say the dress is meh.

    This dress looked a little blah on the hanger when I received it but it looks so great on. It fits well and comfortably all over. The fabric is a great weight for the fall/winter. Too heavy for summer.

      This dress is fantastic. Just throw it on and go... And look like a million bucks. What more does a girl want? It hugs my figure without highlighting any bulges I might have:-). I am 5'7" and 125 Lbs. I bought a 6, but could, perhaps, have worn a 4. I am happy with the 6 because it is so comfortable and easy. I bought the black and would like to see this a deep purple, or royal blue.

      I recently ordered this dress in the fig color. It's a really beautiful, sturdy, well-made dress that will be perfect in the fall and winter months. It's a little long; I'm 5'5" and the 2R hits me mid knee. However, it's a good length to wear with boots. I agree with others that the bodice is roomy and low cut, but will be fine worn over a cami or with a scarf. On sale, this dress is a steal and a great, low-maintenance work staple to have in your closet. Throw it on, add a few accessories, and you'll look completely polished in no time. I just might return for the black version.

      This looked like such a winner that I ordered this for both me and my daughter, figuring that we could figure out when we tried it on who got to keep it. The fit is PECULIAR. Neither of us is what you would call flat chested and yet, the dress was huge on top on both of us. Pretty color but back it goes. Dispointing

      Not for tall girls

      This dress did not suit my 5'-9" lean frame. I can imagine it would be very flattering on a petite woman. It was also way too tight in the arms, which surprised me. I did like the fabric but had to return it.

      So-so but okay for being on sale

      Pros

          Best Uses

            I got this dress on clearance and think it is definitely worth the price on sale. I like the plum color very much and, based on the other reviews, got it in long even though I am 5'3". I have gotten other dresses in the regular length and they have been okay but I totally get what women say about the high waist, even on a short person. So, for this dress, I didn't want it to be quite so high waisted. The length is probably a bit long but I'm 40 so it's fine. I like the heavy fabric which many of the Boden dresses are made of--it's perfect for these very cold Minnesota spring and falls (it's too cold here in the winter for dresses!).

              This is a great dress for work and easy to dress up for an elegant dinner. The material is comfortable and thick enough for winter. Wish I had it in all 3 colors! The fig color works well with my dark brown complexion.

                My teenage daughter appraised this dress while looking at me, thusly: "Gee, you don't look like a teacher wearing that dress." This is the ultimate compliment coming from a 16 year old.

                Great styling, lovely material, flattering neckline, and not teacher-like; it does not get any better than this.
