Disappointing

    Best Uses

    • Casual Wear

    I'm 5'9", 130lbs and ordered a 6 tall in both the yellow (dirty gold) and blue dot, and the waist was still too high. And why does a full skirted dress have a slim, pencil shaped lining?! Loved the vintage silhouette, but the fit was odd and very dowdy.

      I knew I would love this dress. I ordered a dress a few years ago and realized that they run smaller than the sizes in USA, so I ordered a size larger this time, and it fits perfectly.
      I love the design of this retro type fabric, and it has pockets...

        I am 6' tall, 149 lbs, with a semi-athletic build. I ordered a 8L. This dress fits perfectly. The fabric is super comfortable. I wouldn't mind having one in every color. You can dress it up or leave as is... I super excited about wearing this dress.

          This dress is just lovely! The fabric is lovely and soft and the dress fits perfectly for my height (which is 170 cmd). It ones of those dresses you can dress up or dress down depending on your needs - a great dress for holidays where you can wear it the beach with sandals during the day and with heels at night. It also guarantees compliments as it is such a classic stylish design.

            I have loved this dress all season so I was thrilled when it went on sale. I bought the seaside print. I wear it with a white cardigan and mustard yellow wedges. It fits well and is flattering!

              Darling dress! This was actually my first Boden purchase! I was unsure of the sizing but trusted what the sizing tool recommended, and it fits like a dream! I plan to wear this dress to an upcoming Bridal shower, but also can see styling it for a work day or an casual evening out. I have not laundered this dress yet, but am hopeful it retains shape.

                The dreary colors of this dress don't approach the bright, vivid hues in the photo. The colors were all more faded, muted and grayed. Nowhere near the sunny fabric depicted in this picture. I liked the crisp fabric and tiny pleats in the skirt, but the top of the size 14 dress ballooned on my 38D chest. So, back it went.
