    I am in love with the riviera shirt dress! I love the details- the stripes on the belt and the cuffs that coordinate with the all over floral pattern of the dress. I usually find dresses with buttons all down the front to be frumpy- well not this one! I'm looking forward to wearing it to a shower in the next month. I am 5'3", so I usually wear a petite size, but the 6R fit perfectly. The sleeves are a bit snug to my arms (I have plump upper arms, I confess), but not snug enough to put me off.

      This is my second Riviera dress. Initially, I decided to buy this 2nd dress because I really loved the style and the perfect fit of the first one. But upon seeing this second dress, my immediate thought was- "I hope Boden keeps the Riviera line for many years to come!" I love the print on this fabric. And I especially love the contrasting colors (lilac, deep blue, and pistachio) on the print and the striped belt. The attention to detail on this one (i.e. the stripes were repeated on the inside, where the buttons are) was an added bonus. And of course, it goes without saying, the fit was perfect.

      I think the Riviera will never go out of style and I hope it comes back next season with different colors and patterns.

        Love this dress. I bought two dresses in this style last year and came back this year for this one. I love the contrast in the belt - fun colors. Same classic dress as always but with a little more flair. Fits true to size - or consistent with this dress from past years.

          I really liked the pattern and color of this dress (more of a slate grey than blue). It is super comfortable and I loved the long length and flowy fabric.
          It was a tad tight around the busts which was obvious since it showed the bright fabric behind the buttons so sadly I had to return it. I'm a 38DD so I think most women would love this dress and not run into the problem I had.

            Color was not nearly as vibrant as I expected in the navy. The material is very thin. I usually wear a size 6 in Boden but the bustline was too tight, and I'm an A!

                The print is cute, but the ribbon effect on the sleeves is a little odd. Also, the belt bunches up and doesn't look attractive. It needs to be stiffer.
                Still, overall it's a good dress, and I'm keeping it.

                  Classic, vintage style. I wore it to work with sandals and a big necklace, once the weather cools off it will be just as cute with boots and a scarf.

                    What a classic shirtdress! I ordered the gray background with pink flowers and it looks exactly as it is on my computer. The fabric is substantial but not too thick, and the fit is great. I ordered 2p, which was a good choice since 2R would be too long for my 5'2 frame. I have a small bust (34A) and the top fits perfect. I like how the skirt flare out but not too much, which makes my waist looks small. The only shortcoming I can think of is I wish it had pockets. I believe every shirtdress should have pockets. But still, I love this dress!
