    These pants made a great first impression on me. The weight and feel of the seemed high quality. The fabric is thick enough where I will be much more comfortable wearing these to work versus a thin pair of leggings that are not as flattering or forgiving of imperfections. I have noticed a bit of pilling in the areas where my legs come in contact with each other, but I don't believe it is a show-stopper.

    I wear a 6P in Boden USA's Bistro crop pants, so I went with the same size for these. They fit very well and have a good amount of stretch to make them extremely comfortable. I am 5'1", and the petite length still requires me to roll them up a bit, but I am fine with that because I will most likely wear them with boots.

    I fell in love with dress the moment I put it on. It was supposed to be for our courthouse vows, but I switched to another dress because I didn't have enough time to get the sleeves taken in. They flare out way too much. I regret not buying it in time to have it altered.
    This winter, I may wear it with black tights and Mary Janes and a cute cardigan.

      This is a great dress. I wear size 8 in Boden skirts and a 6 in most Boden tops. I ordered this in an 8 and it fits great. 5' 3", 135 lbs. I went with the regular length not petite because I like dresses slightly below my knee which is where this hits. I have a full hour glass shape and it falls beautifully at all the right places. I ordered white and it is a crisp clean summer white.

      Based on numerous reviews I was hesitant to purchase this dress. I tend to be a size 6 in dresses as I have a small rib cage and shoulders but wider hips. I ordered the 6 and 8. The 6 fit perfectly. The fabric is sturdy and classic. The dress is very well made. It is exactly what I was looking for to wear to my rehearsal dinner. My only complaint is that the sleeves are not flush to my shoulders they stick out a bit.

      Great purchase - well made and I feel beautiful in it! can't wait to rock this dress!

        I love this dress. Some of the reviews made me hesitant to buy it, but I'm glad I did. The sleeves are fine, they do stick out a bit, but that is the style. I think they give the dress a very polished look. I would buy the green one too, if it were on sale.

        This dress is well constructed from beautiful sturdy fabric that is perfect for smoothing out your figure. I'm petite and curvy and the vintage styling of this dress is very flattering to my shape. My one quibble would be the sleeves. They are too puffy and seem exaggerated, which the model photo does not reveal. I plan to have the sleeves altered to minimize the puffiness.

          This is a beautiful dress. I had to purchase one size up because they were out of my size. I got it altered, and the extra expense was totally worth it. I have gotten a lot of compliments on the dress. The Fabric is beautiful!

            I found the dress to be cut on the generous side and had to return it as it was too big to be flattering. Had it been a true fit for me, I would have kept it in a heartbeat as it is simply gorgeous. No detail of loveliness was overlooked by Boden on this one. The fabric is luxuriously textured yet lightweight; the detailing is exquisite. I found the dress to be big all over and not just in one area.

            I used the online tool to suggest the correct size to buy. It said either an 8 or 10P, I purchased both. The 10P was way to large, the 8P fit, but the size of the cap sleeves & the cut of the skirt were not proportionate to my size. The dress was wearing me. I wanted to love this dress... it looks like something special, but the cut was not for me.

                Beautiful, substantial fabric, and well-made. Doesn't require a slip. I ordered a 6 petite (I'm 5'3") and sadly this hit about five inches above my knees and I need knee length. There isn't enough selvage to let down the hem so sadly this must go back.
