    Based on previous reviews, I was a little hesitant to try this blouse. But on clearance, and after carefully looking at the garment measurements and reviewers comments, I went ahead and ordered an 8 in the blue print with the rows of flowers. According to Boden's size chart, my measurements indicate size 8. However, I often find I need a 10 or even 12 to fit my shoulders. I made the right choice with the 8; the shoulders fit well. The blouse is boxy, so an 8 gave me less volume through the body. It definitely isn't fitted, but I don't feel like I'm swimming in it. The neckline is heavy because of the ruffles and sometimes it flops a bit, but I do not find that to be a serious problem. The fabric is sheer (georgette tends to be sheer), and the top button is too low, as previous reviews indicated. A camisole fixes both of those issues. I think I will get a lot of use out of this for work and casual nights out.

            This is a very beautiful blouse, but as other reviewers said, it opens/flaps out in the front too much. I sewed the extra button on (that was attached to the shirt in a paper bag) to cover up that open space. Looks much better now, and I am more comfortable wearing it.

            The design and fabric are great. I was afraid the ruffles would be too much for me, but they were subtle and tight enough to feel right. I had to return for a smaller size (normally wear 10 or 12 and reordered an 8) due to it being a very boxy and over-sized shirt. I haven't received this smaller version yet but hope it works.

            First things first, this blouse is true to Boden's reputation of good quality with lovely details. The fabric is great for summer and it can work well in both work and casual settings. What isn't so great is the neckline. It has a deep scoop and the first button is further down still. I think you need to be a bit flat chested to pull it off because at the point where the first button sits is just right above the bust, so it stretches a bit too much there and makes me feel uncomfortable, wondering if it's going to stay buttoned or what happens if I wear it and lean forward the wrong way standing up from my desk. I'm giving it four stars because I like the overall look and it could work well on someone else, but I'm thinking I might end up returning it.

            disappointed, ordered size 12, and specifically ordered because it was listed as machine washable. very cute shirt--BEFORE THE WASH. came out to be a shriveled little shirt. the fabric was also rough texture. love the design, it would have been a nice addition, too bad

              This shirt is so pretty and classy on. I've worn it with jeans and with slacks. I got compliments the first time out of the closet. A little low on me in the front, though if might have done fine with a smaller size. This is a new favorite.

                    I wasn't sure about this shirt, but it is very cute. I was afraid the flowers would be frumpy, but they're not. And floral is in! :) The material is nice and thin (so good for hot weather) but not sheer...and I got it in pink. Really like the details...the trim around the neckline and the ruching on the sleeves. It has a nice drape too. The one thing I would mention is it is a bit low cut if you're not going to wear a cami...it might be fine for date night, but it is a bit much for the office unless you're daring!

                            I was excited to try a new style and this looked really pretty coming out of the package but sadly not flattering on. I'm on the short side and curvy and it just looked like I packed on a few extra pounds. Sadly sent back.
