Beautiful, but hard to zip!

The jury is still out on this one for me. This dress is beautiful, comfortable, and flattering, but I can't zip the thing! I tried zipping the dress while I wasn't wearing it, just to make sure it wasn't sticking because the size is too small, but it got stuck even then, though I was able to fully close the zipper. I had a hand injury a couple of years ago in my right hand, so to reach around (the zipper is on the side seam under the left arm) and keep a firm grip on the zipper when it's stuck (it sticks on the seam right where it turns into the waistband) is nearly impossible, and my husband can't keep a grasp on the tiny zipper pull once it gets caught. I can't see the zipper where it gets stuck, as it's right under the bust, but my husband says there's fabric rolling forward from under the edges of the zipper and it's hard to keep pushing it out of the way. It fits so beautifully otherwise, that I'm not ready to give up on the dress, but if I can't get it zipped up, obviously I won't be able to wear it. I'm pretty sure the next size up would gap at the top of the bust and the waist hit too low, so I don't want to exchange it, either. What to do, what to do...

    I always order 4P for all my pants and tops, but seems like fitted dress will need to be 1 size upper for me. I guess I am between 4P and 6P.

      This is a cute, comfortable dress that runs true to size. I ordered a size larger b/c of other reviews and had to return the dress.

        This one works much better in the long length. I ordered the teal in the regular length at first. The teal was pretty but a bit too sixties modish. The length was way too short for work. I'm 5'6" so not tall by any means. I reordered in the navy long length, and the dress is perfect. Love it!

          I initially ordered the regular length in the teal color, and that had to go back. It looked too modish and the short length was completely inappropriate for work. I reordered in the navy long length and it's perfect. I'm not super tall--5'6"--but the extra couple inches made a huge difference in overall look of the dress, as did the color. The dress is professional looking and comfortable--a great combination in my book.

            I usually wear a size 6 in Boden but I couldn't zip it up below the bustline. I even had my sister who is a size 4 try in on and she couldn't zip it up either. It was so cute though! I worked really hard to try and make it work!

            I bought the green and the color is wonderful! The side zipper catches on the material used in the waistband. I plan to tack theses pieces tighter so they will be out of the way.

                I am having a hard time trying to find Boden dresses that flatter me. I am 5'9" and 155 lbs with a pear shape. This dress (size US 10) makes me look like I'm a linebacker. with huge shoulders. This is another one that will be going back.
