I have several dresses and t-shirts in a size 6 so ordered a few more dresses expecting them to fit well. In this size, it looks like a potato sack on me! Not flattering at all. I may try to return for a size 4, but am worried that it will be too small. I am 5'6" and weigh 115lbs.

      I really like this dress. The fabric (100% cotton!!) is very soft and there's a lining that's helpful. I find that I am falling in-between Boden sizes recently, which is why this didn't get a 5 star. I got a 4R, and it's a little big, but not dryer-friendly...so I don't think I can shrink it much. I know if I had gotten a 2R though, it would have been too tight. In general though, this is the first dress I've kept from Boden in a while; I wish the other colors prices would drop (why is it $30+ more for the pink?).

      Form- fitting

        This is a great dress, but is very form-fitting, and the material is stretchy, so it may not be to everyone's liking. It's well made and I love the pockets. Excellent for work, but order a size up.

          A beautiful, well-fitting dress. it is lined with incredibly soft fabric and feels so comfortable on. The detailing above the bust is quite flattering and the structured look of the dress is perfect for hiding any figure flaws.

            Substantial fabric so as not to show every bump. Travels well.
            Great length for work & can work for evening
            with some high heels & jewelry.
            Love, love, love pockets in a dress.
            Bought grey & pink.

                I was so excited about this dress. I've wanted a simple hot pink shift for years. The fabric is stretchy and is probably comfortable. I am 5'7", 165 lbs and a 38D. The cut and vertical lines were not flattering and I returned the dress.

                This is how waistlines should be done.

                    Many Boden dresses cut me off at the middle. This is more on the fitted size (if you don't like things tight, size up), but the thick fabric and vertical paneling make it work perfectly.

                    Also, pockets. Seriously, pockets! Now, can we have another one that isn't eye searing pink?

                    This was really cute on top, nice material, but the bottom bunched up, and I couldn't figure out how to smooth it out. Had to send it back.

                    First the good:
                    Great fabric, good choice of colors, good quality.

                    Now the bad:
                    The sizing was off for me, for the size 10 Reg. Okay in the bust area, but way too baggy in the waist and hip area. The dress appeared plain and for that reason it went back.
