    This dress is very comfortable yet stylish. I am happy with the design, however it is shorter than the model who it is shown on in the catalogue. Despite that, it is a great dress for the spring and summer, to just throw on and look great running around town.

    Too short!

    I ordered a 6 petite in this dress, which has been a great fit for me in several other Boden dresses. But this dress was way too small. It felt tighter up top than I would have liked, but most importantly, it was super short. I wanted the length of the dress on the model (i.e. just above the knee), but instead it came to my mid-thigh. After I tried it on I looked at the reviews (oops, should have done that first) and saw that several other petite buyers had the same problem, so the shortness might only be a problem in the petite size.

      Arms were unflattering

        This dress would be fine for shopping, the beach, pool etc. The arms of the dress puckered on me and were very unflattering. The skirt of the dress looked like maternity wear on me. I think I had a maternity dress like this in the eighties. It was quite cute but not the look I am going for at my age.

          This dress is perfect for the pear body shape. I bought the size 8 because I'm busty. It fit perfectly! It's a great dress for casual spring or summer days around town.

          Soft fabric, weird fit

          I ordered this in 8P. I found this true to size, though significantly shorter than it appears on the model. I wish Boden would indicate whether the model is shown wearing the long (L) version of the dress or regular. Because no such options are offered for petite, it's tough to tell how it will fit. I'm 5'2" and the 8P hit me mid- to high- thigh.

          Aside from that, it has a weird pleat in the middle front, both above and below the waistband. It made my bust look tubular and dumpy, made my belly look bulgy.

          The fabric is soft and nice for a summer day. The cut just isn't for me, and the dress will go back.

            This dress is super cute! It is just a bit shorter than I had hoped it would be (and I'm only 5'2") so I will not be able to wear it to work. It will be a weekend/ vacation dress for me.

              This is a very pretty, feminine, well-made, lined, washable cotton summer dress, and the sale price is an absolute steal considering its quality. The size 8L fits my somewhat busty size US 6/8 frame very well. The only con for me is that even the long length is still a little short for my taste, falling about a half inch to an inch above my knees (and at 5'6 1/2", I am not extremely tall--most of my Boden long dresses fall at my knees or cover them, which I prefer). The length would be acceptable if I could wear tights, but since this is a summer dress that's not possible, so it might be grounds to return it. It's unfortunate because I like everything else about it.

                  Wanted this dress for Summer but my size was not in stock. Finally came back in stock and on sale, I ordered a 14R. This dress fit perfectly for my 5'6", 175 lb. frame. I did find the 14R to be a tad bit short, so exchanged for a 14L. The fit is still perfect and length just skims the knee. Can't wait for warm weather or vacation travel to roll around.
                  I find Boden's garment measurements to be most helpful in determining what size to order. Customer Service always make any needed exchanges a breeze.
