      The pattern is so adorable, but the top is constructed so wonky that I had to return it. I wish more things were produced in that print since I was trying how I could turn the dress into a wearable skirt.

        So pretty! The bodice lays oddly until you move it around to lay right. Of course my chest is large. It's a little tight on the waist zipping up but okay once on..

                This dress is cut just....oddly. You'd have to be at least 5'8", or more, to come close to filling up the vertical space between the waist and the halter. If you try to have it altered to accomodate a shorter torso, the pleats at the top of the bodice will not lay well. And as others have mentioned, the back poufs out like a giant balloon. It would cost me a fortune to have this cute dress altered. It's going in a box back to Boden tomorrow.

                Love this; fits beautfiully at the waist and hits the knee (I'm 5'8, it's difficult to do both). I'm usually a size 4, but size 8 was perfect.

                Love the vintage cartoon print; would wear this to work with a cardigan or during the weekend/running errands.

                Wish I found this place sooner, looking forward to fall!

                Fun styling, but hard to fit

                    I couldn't wait for this dress to arrive, and ordered it in 2 sizes to cover all my bases, but this dress was not to be for me. Loved the print and the styling, but the top was too bunchy and the halter straps would not lay flat around my breastbone and shoulders. Loved the fact that it minimized my waist and hips, but that didn't matter because all the attention was on the bad-fitting top. It was also about an inch or 2 shorter than I expected; I am only 5'4" and it hit me right above the knee. Wanted to love it, but trying to alter the top would have cost a small fortune.

                    I ordered this dress in two different colors because I liked it so much. I'm always been a 4 and a 6 when it comes to dresses, and I decided to go with a 4 in this dress. It zips up, and it's fairly comfortable, but I definitely could've gone with the 6. The zipper on one of the dresses gets stuck at the waist when I unzip it off the hanger and try to zip it up on me, but it does fit. Next time, I'll probably go with the 6 when I order a dress from Boden, but these dresses are still very flattering and perfect for a summer party or a walk around town.
