Too baggy and blousy

    This top is so attractive, so I'm disappointed that I can't make it work. It fits properly in the shoulders, wrists, arms, etc, and I wouldn't want to go smaller, but the body is just too billowy and blousy and completely covers my shape. I get lost in it. I've had this trouble in other Boden tops as well. If you are on the petite side, you may have the same issue.

      I'd use this extremely feminine, tres chic blouse for work meetings, meeting new clients, out for a wine or coffee with girlfriends. I bought the navy with white stars in a size 10. Tucked in to blue dress pants and cinched with a lovely leather belt I felt very glam and found the cut quite flattering. Love the sleeves.

      Cute but shrinks

      This blouse is very cute but I ordered two in my regular size, and both shrunk about 3 inches even though I washed and line dried as directed. However, I thought the blouse was so cute and perfect under a blazer, I sent them back for the next size up, so if it shrinks it might still fit. The sales staff was amazing at replacing the blouse. Hopefully, the new size will work out better.

      Lovely but it shrunk a little

        I really enjoyed the flowing character of this blouse and received several compliments on it. I washed it on "delicate" with Woolite. On my machine, that setting is COLD/COLD with a very light spin.
        Dripped dry. It definitly shrunk--so the loose fit has been reduced which will work for those who didn't like that feature.

        My recommendation is YES, but be aware.

          I really wanted to like this shirt (I'd had my eye on it since the fall), but it failed in 2 ways. 1) The fabric was rather itchy and uncomfortable; 2) it just felt too big (as some other reviewers have commented). The bottom part of the shirt needs to be more gathered, or longer to be like a tunic, as it was, I felt like it hid my shape entirely. Unfortunately I had to send it back.

            I bought these for work and they are perfect. I bought two, then another and again another. It makes for very easy dressing. I would recommend wearing it tucked in with a pencil skirt. Yes, it is loose fitting and floaty around the waist and I like that. I would not size down because on me the shoulders would be too narrow. I love the neckline the bow detail - not too low for work. I did have to mend some of the pleats on the back of one shirt that came unstitched after one wear. Can be machine washed gently and hang to dry. No ironing necessary. I would love to see this shirt design again without the pleats in a softer viscose.

              This blouse is surprisingly cute. Wasn't sure from the photos if I would like it--but it looks great. I ordered a size smaller than usual because of reviews that I read. I got the navy, an d it will look great with jeans, or white capris. Glad I took the chance on it! Very flowy fabric...feels great!
