Terrible Fit

Pros

    Cons

    • Bad Design

    Best Uses

    • Casual Wear

    I tried both my normal Boden size and up one size (since the dress is stretchy I thought it might be a snug fit). Both were really bad. The fabric was stretchy which is good, but with a shiny cheap feel. The fit was all wrong. The detailing was cheaply done, with weird tucks and gathering and uneveness at the waist that looked bad, and was made even more noticeable because the stripes match up all wrong and are puckered. Overall this dress felt like Boden fail to me - not the quality construction or fabric I would have expected.

      The texture of the fabric brings this classic up to a truly individual piece for your wardrobe. The cut and color are great and made for dressing up or down throughout the day. The stretch in the knit makes this more comfortable and easy care than many of my Boden dresses. I only wish it were offered in petite. The arms and waist are cut a little smaller for my shorter frame in petite. I am not sure if I will keep this dress.

      Yowza... stripes and curves

        All I can say is wow. I love stripes, so I had to have this too. I'm hourglass shaped, 5'3" 140# 32-34D-DD, and love dresses that have defined waists. This made my hourglass shape even MORE pronounced - the top was actually a little tighter and lower cut than I expected, but I have a slightly short torso, so your mileage may vary. The side seams make my hips look a little wider than normal and added a little width at the top hip (which is actually good for me because my bottom hip is heavier), so if you are very conscious of your hip width, this may not be the dress for you. I'm normally an 8R or 8P depending on the garment and cut, and the 8R was perfect here.

          This dress is made of a nice, thick, quality material. I do think it makes me look a little larger in the hips than I actually am, but I'm pretty lanky so that's ok.

            Lovely knit dress. The stripes are made with textured rolling knit fabric that adds a wonderful detail and keeps the dress wrinkle resistant. This dress has a lovely cut and the navy and green color hits just the right note between bright and classic. Sadly my size was out of stock and I bought a regular instead of petite. I don't know if I will keep this beautiful dress.

              This dress is comfortable and great for work. I was surprised at the amount of complements this dress has received. The material is a bit thicker than I thought it would be. It could be worn to work or for a weekend outing.

                    For work or family events this dress makes looking smart effortless. The high waist/tulip skirt took some reassuring from friends that it was flattering since it is outside of the usual A-line dress I wear. The knit fabric doesn't wrinkle which is great for travel and it can be dressed up with heels and a necklace or down with sandals and a scarf or cardigan. The pockets are a nice feature (maybe a bit bigger?) however my confidence in things staying put is low for now. Fit on top is slimming. I ordered an 8L (140# 5'9" 32d athletic build) and could have gone smaller but I'm keeping what I have as it is comfortable and the looser fit looks good with the fabric.
