    Comments about Boden Women Loulou Dress:

    I'd read the other reviews of this and expected the fabric to be crazy thick. By my cold-climate standards it was not. The fabric was actually really nice; thick, but not oppressive, substantial but not crazy heavy. Would this be a good summer dress? No, but I was looking for fall/winter and it would be perfect for that.

    The problem I had was that I ordered my typical US dress size (I'm just getting familiar with Boden) and although it fit, the overall appearance was too tight and because of the fabric weight that was unflattering. I have some late 30s waistline pudge and every bump was accentuated.

    So if you're considering this dress, and I think you should, and are on the fence between sizes, order up and I think you'll be happy.

      Best dress ever. I wear this to work and get compliments every time. I bought a Petite 2 and it fits perfectly ( I'm 5 feet 100 pounds). It's a nice thick cotton material that holds it shape and is refined enough for the office. One of my favorite Boden purchases.

        This dress is just great: It's a canvas for you to paint on. Wear with a chunky necklace. Wear with a scarf. Wear with a belt. Wear with a sweater...you pick.

        I was a little skeptical that the fit would be as good as it is just looking at the pictures but it is one of my favorites. The waist is high and forgiving, the fabric (some have called it bulky) has structure and stands away from the body, holding its shape.

        I love it! Considering buying a second one in Navy before it disappears just in case I wear the first one out!

              I bought this dress for office wear. It was heavy weight like I anticipated and its great for the SF Bay Area weather. We have foggy summers, so this dress is just the thing for colder days. It is very short in petite! But since I am only 5'1" , it was not a problem for me and I will wear leggings underneath. For others who are taller, you definitely want to get the regular size or get a long. Overall a great value for the sale price I was able to purchase it at. Would buy again!

              The simple shape of this dress drew me in - I was hoping for a comfortable, versatile dress I could throw on and dress up or down. Unfortunately I found the textured ponte fabric to be too casual which really limited the versatility. I also wasn't a big fan of the pleats at the waist, though having two children no doubt makes that a tricky area for me with many styles.

              Comments about Boden Women Loulou Dress:

              This dress had great promise, but alas it looked terrible on me. I like the high wasted dresses, but this dress has a waist that just felt odd on me. It sits somewhere between natural waist and an empire waist and that just felt odd. I liked that it was a slip on and could have worked fine as an everyday dress, if the fit was better on me. I am somewhat curvy and I think this dress would look better on someone a bit more slender.

              Such a cute dress... I received lots of compliments. I just wish that they would add a bit of length to the regular size. The model MUST be wearing a tall.

                Comments about Boden Women Loulou Dress:

                This is a surprisingly elegant dress. It is classically styled and falls just at the knee to give it a bit of swish - think Jackie O or Catherine Deneuve.

                It is beautifully made and the material is quite substantial so it forms a sort of armor for the body. No need to worry about things sticking out or showing. It is a real "go to" dress when you need to look neat and pulled together or will have lots of eyes on you. I'm going to order it in red too...and of course one always needs a standard black dress.
