    Very nice thick cotton with substantial lining - it will hold its shape we'll. It is fitted and flattering but also comfortable. I usually wear a size 6 or 8 in Boden dresses and in this one the 8 was the better fit.

        This dress just didn't flatter my figure. I like the retro feel and a-line but it was a little tight in the bodice. I think I should have got the 6R instead of the 4R. I'm 5'4" and 123lbs. My ten year old daughter encouraged me to return this but I'm going to hang on to it as I usually drop about 5-10lbs in warm weather so I'm hoping this helps the fit... Overall a cute dress!

        I have lusted over this dress for a long time. It totally suits me, the color,tailoring, with a little mod thrown in! Boden sizes are different than US sizing. They are more true to size than US vanity sizing. I am 4'11" and 118 lbs. A size 4 regular fits perfectly, pre and post washing. I hung it to dry and touched it up with an iron. I love the pockets. I look forward to wearing it ad nasum to work, casual dinners, and for something comfy on a warm summer's day.

          I had the navy in this dress all summer and just grabbed the brown pattern. This is one of my all time favorite Boden dresses--cute, fun, flattering, A-line, pockets without bulk. Great for weekends and I even wear to work because it's so cute-- but it's a little short on me, to be honest.

            I've had my eye on this dress for a while. I am 5'2", ~120 lbs, and I have an hourglass shape. I ordered a US size 4R in the ochre print, and it fits perfectly except for the bust/shoulders, which are just a tad too tall for my frame. I am exchanging it for a petite and really hoping that solves it. The dress itself is wonderful. It is very sturdy and well-made, trendy without being too showy, and very comfortable.

              I'm not sure if I will be keeping this, will have to pair it with a sweater and see if that eases my worry about my flabby arms. It's cute, though the pattern looks more overwhelming up close in petite size. I feel like it's perfect for spring, or could work for fall with a brown or pumpkin colored cropped cardigan. It's well made as usual, material is little stiff so it keeps it's silhouette. The slight A-line works for me.

                I've been looking at this dress for a long time, and decided to buy it when it went on sale. The brown patterned dress is so cute on - will look great at the office and on our Hawaiian vacation!

                      This dress in white looked great on, so flattering on my size 14 shape. The only issue was the fabric started to crumple around my hips just from walking two minutes to try it out. It was probably not enough to be significant for most people, but I'm very fussy about choosing low-maintenance clothes that look good whatever, so that ruled it out for me.

                      I received a ton of compliments when I wore this dress, and most everyone asked where I had gotten it. It fits true to size on the waist with a little more room for the hips, which makes it comfortable for my shape. I ordered size 4R and it is true to size. The retro, yet classic look of the dress makes it unique and stylish.
