    I ordered the Ravello top in spot print on sale. It is gorgeous. The silk is soft and drapes nicely. The length is good with skirts and pants. The colors are fun and it's not revealing so perfect for work.

      This is a wardrobe staple. The silk is nice quality and it's very flattering. The patterns this year are also nice. I wear a 16 and it fit true to size.

        This top in Blues Abstract Geo is very pretty in an effortless way. I checked the measurement chart to see which size I should go with and ended up choosing size 2. The fit is flattering but just slightly looser than I prefer. My shoulders are broad, so the sleeves are shorter on me than on the model. The Ravello Top goes well with a navy Ralph Lauren maxi skirt I own. Pearl jewelry and tan high heel sandals made my outfit complete. I wore the ensemble to church and felt fashionably put together.

        Love the ripple spot print

              I am not a fan of Boden's ravello top in general -- I've had two, and I find that they run big and keep sliding forward on me, so that the neck opening is gaping in the front. But I really love the Blues Ripples Spot print, so I had to get it. I bought size 2, to minimize the gaping. Given that I have a very small chest, it works.

                This blouse is perfect for layering with a suit coat - great for work wear. No fussy collars to mess with and combines classic with stylish. It is now my favorite go-to blouse. I plan on getting more of them in other colors.

                  I have several of these tops and keep buying more. I find them really great for work (teaching), conferences, or times I want to look casual but pulled together.

                  Overall I like the design and patterns/colors, but wish the sleeves offered a little more coverage for those of us who are not fond of our upper arms. On the model it looks more like a short sleeve top, but in practice (at least on me) the cut is more like cap sleeves, which is less flattering. As a result, I almost always pair them with a cardi. They also seem to shrink a bit in the wash -- not a ton, but enough to notice.

                    I added another Ravello to my collection (I have them lined up like little soldiers in my closet). It is a real staple in my wardrobe as they look great under cardigans and blazers, or tucked into pencil skirts when it's warmer outside. I ordered my usual 6 and it's perfect. I will only say that I prefer the little pleated on the sleeves that were in the spring top, but love the patterns on the fall ravello just the same. (They handwash beautifully).

                      I bought this top on sale and couldn't be happier. I selected the black with blue print and it looks amazing with a business suit as well as jeans.

                      Now I know why people rave about the Ravello top.

                      It washed well, but it needed to be ironed. Not a fan of ironing, but it's a small price for a great blouse.

                      I'm a busty size 10 and it looked flattering. I ordered another Ravello top and it's on backorder. Can't wait for it to get here.
