Clerkenwell Dress

WQ059
(Was $138.00 ) now $82.80 to $110.40

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

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

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

        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.

                Bought this dress during the recent 80% clearance sale. I had wanted two other dresses and got this one as a bit of an afterthought, but this ended up being my favorite of the 3. The exposed zipper is stylish, the fabric is thick enough for winter and is flattering. The shape is great. I own 5 Boden dresses in basically the same shape. This neckline is a little different, which I like. The plum color is also gorgeous. All in all very pleased.

                  An incredibly versatile, figure-flattering dress! A classic shape and easy fit - I expect to get tons of use out of this, as it can easily be dressed up or down to accommodate a variety of occasions and is made of a nice thick, stretchy, durable fabric. The sapphire color is rich and vibrant, and I got tons of compliments on how it made my blue eyes "pop." I'm 5'8", 165 lbs, and pear-shaped, and this dress fit me like a glove in an 8R (I did need to get the waist tailored in, but I have an extremely small waist so this is par for the course for me). Very, very pleased with this purchase - absolutely recommended.

                    This is a lovely, well-made dress, in a simple yet sophisticated design. And I love the plum color! I usually fit in a 2R or 4L in Boden dresses, and the 4L was definitely too big - so order down a size.

                      I wanted a nice black dress. Not frumpy but not high style nor fussy. This dress is one that has a comfort feel in the fabric and yet a fit that is so flattering. I wear a 16US and this is what I purchased. The tailoring is fantastic. The clearance price makes a dress of this quality a steal. Great for fuller figures. The deep V-neckline is perfect for my larger bust and this dress thins me out and I am full hour glass. The fitted top with A-line fuller skirt accentuates a fuller figure woman's best assets. Great dress. I liked it so much I purchased another in the eggplant/purple.
