Too long and off white

By Olivia

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

        In the description it says finishes at knee length and actually it is more like a midi length, I usually buy regular length and this dress in regular was too long. The white color is more off white shade. Had to return.

        I ordered this in the dark blue. Not only is this a gorgeous color, it is also a sturdy knit fabric. The embroidery is gorgeous, but be sure to hand wash only or the embroidery might come loose in spots. I ordered it in white for my daughter-in-law. White is the trendy color for this summer. It is beautiful!

          This dress is quite flattering. It highlights the shape of your body while skimming over any lumps and bumps. I always get compliments when I wear this dress. I bought purple and white. The purple is perfect. The white isn't as crisp as I would like. While I wear the purple by itself, I usually wear a little jacket over the white. During the winter, I wore a black long-sleeve t-shirt under the dress paired with tall boots for a warmer, more causal look.

                  The white version is a fairly plain summer dress. For me, it was perfectly good enough but less exciting than lots of other Boden offerings

                    Love this dress, I bought the coral color. Great for days when you don't want to fuss about what to wear but look put together, flattering and comfortable. I ordered a 10 petite. Since I don't often order petite because it's not a size option available for every clothing item, I wasn't sure about the fit. I would order an 8 petite next time for a closer fit and shorter hem. I am usually a 6-8 in regular.

                      I bought the white one first, but returned it because it was a little see-thru. Then i bought the orangey one and it's beautiful. i went to a pool party and received a bunch of complements. It's so easy to look good with this dress. You put it on, and you are done! No zippers, no buttons. Awesome!

                        Bought this in white (the periwinkle blue was sold out in my size)--perfect fit and look with the trim. Loved it so much that I wanted it in blue--I kept checking daily (hourly?) to see if my size was available, and sure enough it finally was so I ordered it right away and so glad to have both colors.

                        I love the fit of this dress. Its comfortable but still looks stylish. I also love the color. I chose the purple color and it's a pleasantly vibrant shade.

                          This is a fantastic flattering dress (I got lots of compliments the first time I wore it). Skims nicely over a mummy-tummy. I'm 5 ft 4 in, 117 lbs, and the 4R fits well.
