    This shift is beautiful! I bought the beige/pink (and paired it with matching pink sling backs and scarf)and love the contrast and pattern. The pink is a HOT pink. Crisp fabric, very cute design and comfortable.

      I purchased this dress in the navy/8long for formal,dressy occasions and like other Boden dresses,I had to have another of the same style.The parchment/pink seemed more everyday and playful,so I went up a size,(no spanx needed!)and went with the R length.I have worn this dress to several Breast Cancer Awareness events this month and everyone loves it! I tell them to checkout Boden.

        I am 5'2" and ~120 lbs with an hourglass shape. I ordered a US size 4 and it fits in all the right places, maybe a bit on the snug side. I am thrilled with the whole pattern. The pewter color is beautiful, and the embroidery is more vibrant and more purple than what the photos show. The zipper gives me a little difficulty in one certain spot, but that's a minor complaint. The overall quality seems very good.

          I get many compliments on this dress - people can tell it is not a run-of-the-mill garment. It is tailored and flattering. Looks great in gray.

              I was attracted to this dress but the fit, while OK, was not flattering. Also, the colors (tan pink) looked more harmonious on the web site than they are in actuality. The pink circles were brighter and seemed bigger in real life...not so flattering if you are curvy (I'm 5'4, 140lbs, 36C, and usually take a Boden 10R)--if you are shaped like me, this will probably not be ideal.

                    I got the beige version with pink embroidery in size 14. It was pretty, in good thick fabric, and was more glossy and dressy than the photo. However, I forgot that shift dresses never fit me because of my proportions, so it went back. No fault of the dress though

                    This dress is beautifully made, nice fabric and the pink-on-tan colors look nice together but not flattering on me. Also, the cut is not the greatest for my pear-shaped figure--while the dress fits my hips and (medium) bust, it poofs a bit around my waist and as it is more empire-line, belting at the waist won't do it. I'd have to tailor it to make it look better, which would undermine the good sale price I bought it for. I ordered a 12L so it wouldn't be too short (I'm 5'8 1/2") but I would have preferred it hitting at or above the knee, not below. I might consider ordering the pewter instead if it had the same low sale price but it is priced higher, so I may just return this.

                      Love this dress. It's stylish, slips on perfectly, has a gentle flair, material is substantive and has a nice sheen to it, so it holds its shape and resists wrinkles. It looks great, with the embroidery details, but is also comfortable. Perfect for events where you need to look good for hours.

                        I love this dress - bought the tan/pink version and loved it so much I went back for the pewter color. I LOVE the pewter - I think it's a little more formal. I can wear it to work and go out to dinner afterward. Just looks great and I've gotten so many complements. Travels well too!

                          I bought this dress in two sizes, 2R and 6P since it was my first Boden purchase and I wasn't sure of the sizing. I'm 5'3" / 115 lbs and the 2R fit me much better (the 6P made me look wider for some reason). The dress appears well-made (lined on the inside) and is very pretty. I bought the blue color and can see wearing this at the office or for a nice evening out.
