lovely idea but didn't work out

Best Uses

This was a dress I was really excited to own and I wanted it to work out since the color blue and neckline were so flattering. The cut is only flattering for a completely straight figure - any hip, stomach, or chest and the dress feels restricting and the dress appears unflattering. The linen material was lined but did not help the cut with any stretch for body shape. Ah well...

      The top fits well enough but the bottom is very snug. There isn't any allowance for a round bottom, so the fabric lays on the body in a very unflattering way. If you have an hourglass or pear shape this isn't a good dress for you. Take a look at the model photos, you can see the fit is not that great about the bottom.

      First off, I love linen work wear. Here in the southwest, it is a great year-round fabric, and the quality is great.

      The design makes me look like I never had a baby. I feel sleek, put-together, and very grateful to Boden for giving my confidence quite a boost--something every woman needs in the corporate world.

          Putting together a new corporate wardrobe. This dress is very chic though much brighter pink than appears on website. Its a bit narrow in width so don't plan on biking in it…but other than that it is very pretty, well made and flattering

            Couldn't even get it on despite wearing this size at boden on a regular basis. Made a girl a little self- conscious before work this morning. This one will be going back. I also don't really like super tight dresses for work anyways. I like form fitting but not like can't breathe

            First off, the fabric color and texture is absolutely gorgeous. I also appreciate the length of the skirt and the flattering waist line. The only issue was that the dress runs really small in the hips and the butt, so I would order one size up if you have any curves at all. I'm 5'9, weigh 135 and ordered a 4L, thinking I would have plenty of room. Definitely needed a 6!

              I had to send this navy/tan dress back due to a constant fight with the liner. It's linen, so a liner is a must, or I would've considered cutting it out. I don't know what the issue was, but the lining would ride up to the point that it was constricting around the hips & I thought if I tried to sit, it would rip. Good thing I only test drove this inside my house. First time I've ever had this kind of issue with a Boden dress. I'm a Boden size 12R, and it fit perfectly. Except for the rogue liner!
