    I really liked how this dress fit except it needed to be 2 inches longer to be work-appropriate, and I am incredibly short.

      Bought this dress for my sister's engagement party. Looked amazing. Accidentally put it in the dryer and it shrunk. But Boden's amazing return policy replaced it for me. Now I wear it all the time!!

            Terrible on Me, But a Nice Dress

                Not every dress is meant for every body. This one is case in point. I think a younger, more slender build would look great in this. From the neck, to the waist, to the hip, nothing worked on me. But it is nice fabric and an interesting color and design.

                      the zipper is noticeable through the fabric..not good.
                      Too short. Looked frumpy rather than trendy/stylish. I am size 8. I was going to wear with tights and boots. Went back.

                        This is a great dress for Fall and Winter. I will get a lot of wear out of it. One comment about the fit. I am generally a 4P...I'm short. After talking to the folks at Boden I ordered a 4R. A 4P would have been too short for work wear. The 4R fits perfectly, and hits at the top of my knee.

                        The fabric was substantial and beautiful but the neckline was not flattering for a curvier frame.

                        I like this dress, and I'm keeping it. That being said, it isn't super flattering and, for me, definitely needs a belt. Further, I think a slip is a must. While the fabric on the bottom generally flows away from the body, if you move certain ways even the most VPL-resistant panties show some lines.
