Cute but snug in the arms

    Best Uses

    • Wear To Work

    I bought this dress to wear to work under a suit jacket. I love the style. The tulip skirt creates the illusion of curves for my boy-shaped body. It's also well made; it's lined with a bright pink print. Overall, it's a win. The only downside is, like a few others, I find the dress a bit tight around the arm area. It's not that the sleeves are tight around the bicep; rather, the cut of the dress slightly restricts movement, making it a bit difficult to lift my arms up over my head. If I had a job that required a lot of serious pointing or drastic arm movements, the cut of the dress might be a problem. Thankfully, I do not.

      This dress is perfect for summer/fall transition for me. I live in the South so our falls are warm, but you don't want to wear something too summery looking. The short sleeve/wool combo in a vibrant purple color is perfect. I love the waist detail, it give shape without being constricting or obtrusive. The neckline adds interest without veering into professionally inappropriate territory.

      This dress fit true to size, but the top V slit stuck out instead of laying flat, which I could have lived with, but when I moved my arms up, the whole dress moved in a stiff way, I can't live with my arms down the whole time.

      A size six with no belly fat would look great in this dress! I am an eight and I love a structured well tailored fit. This dress was not designed that way. It blouses out at the hips which made me look larger. It felt amazing and was made of quality fabric but made me look frumpy. :(

      Love this paired with the jacket. It will be great for work. The dress is a bit bloomy in the hips and waist but I will keep it as I purchased the dot print and it is no longer available in a smaller size and I like the print, it's fun to have a choice other than solids for the office. The details are fine and make this dress special.

      Emphasized my hips

      I liked the fabric and it fit well through the bust but was baggy through the waist and hips. The gathers at the hips emphasized by hips more than I'd like.

      Got the 2P grey polka dots as my first Boden dress and I wanted to see what people were talking about. I 5'1" and am a chubby 00P/0P, if you know what I mean, and I fit barely in the 2P due to the shoulders. I love that it's made of wool, made in Romania (not China) and has a great design. The pink printed lining inside makes me happy when I look at it. Still deciding if it's appropriate for work with the dots, but very impressed that I can get a good-quality wool dress at discount. Definitely starting to love Boden.

      I love this dress, but the size I ordered ran a little large and hit me in odd places. I have ordered other straight cut dresses from Boden and they have fit like a glove, not sure why this one was a miss.

        I loved this picture but thought when I bought this there was no way that straight skirt would look good over my generous lower half. I was wrong. This dress nips in at a high waist and then (very subtlety) flares out and down. It truly hides my flaws and provides a wonderful silhouette.
