Beautiful but big

Beautiful fabric but it runs large all over. I am not small. I usually wear a 14 and I have large breasts and this just hung off me. I was actually excited that others said it was large because I usually have a hard time with the chest area being too small. This was more like a 16 or 18. Plus there was weird stitching on the left breast. It went back.

    I read other reviewers comments and ordered another size down and the dress fit perfectly (I usually wear US 6R in Boden size and ordered a 4R). I'm 5'6" & 130 lbs. It's very flattering to the figure and the eggplant color is still classic and not boring like black. I also like that the neckline isn't too low, so I can wear a regular bra with it.

        I absolutely loved the dress but I have been doing so much walking lately I must have trimmed a great deal of inches away. I would have to have it a size smaller then a ten. It looks and feels like a couture piece. The pattern looks like handpainted silk. Very feminine and unique.

          This dress is just like wearing air it is so light and lovely. I did have to go down a size, but one size smaller worked great.

                I really wanted to love this dress b/c I think the print is so classy, but it was just too large in the top! I am between a 4 and a 6, and ordered the 6. Maybe that was the problem. (For reference I am 5' 8", 135lbs). Definitely not as figure flattering as it is on the model.

                  I really wanted to like this dress. I got it in the red. Turns out it is much more pink and beige than it looks in the photo. As a blond the colors just washed me out too much. The material was lovely, but in the end it was just too sweet. I looked like I was 16 years old! Would probably be a great dress on someone really busty and with a little more edge in their image to counter the sweetness....

                    I will use accessories to dress up --i.e. long earrings, high heels, small purse-- and down --a sweater in blue or green and ballerinas.

                    It is a winner!

                      This is the second color of this dress that I have tried. The first one was the pattern with the red in a 14. The waist was just slightly high and bodice slightly loose and the colors, while very appealing, just didn't look great on me. The blue pattern wasn't available in my size, so I ordered the solid blue. The dress itself is gorgeous fabric. The blue ink color is a pretty purplish blue and the silk really is sumptuous. The long size is longer both in length and in the waist. The fit is pretty good, really, though still slightly loose in the bodice (I'm 5'7", a C cup, over age 50)Taking up the shoulder seam would tighten up the arm hole and improve the bodice, I believe, but do I want to do that? I'm not sure why this dress doesn't scream, "Wow", but it doesn't. I am teetering between keeping it and sending it home. The quality is flawless, the design is just what I thought I wanted!!

                        I couldn't love this dress more. I bought the blue print when it went on sale and then because I loved it so much I bought another in solid blue when the price dipped again. It's beautiful and fits perfectly. The fabric is lovely. It's my favorite of all my Boden dresses (and I have a few). The comments of other reviewers were very helpful in steering me to buying it in size 4 (I'm usually a size 6) and getting it in the regular length as reviewers said regular length ran long. (I usually choose long because I like to have my less-than-gorgeous knees covered, but in regular it's just the right length.) A few reviewers thought it didn't fit right, but, if like me, you have a small waist and a full bosom, I can't imagine anything fitting better. FYI, I'm 5'7" with a 34DD chest.
