nice summer dress

    Very straight up and down fit; might be too tight in hips and too loose in waist for those who are more curvy. Elegant but comfortable for wearing to work.

    Bad No Matter What the Size

    By Bodenlover

    from USA

    See all my reviews

    Based on reviews I ordered up a size. Wrong -- overall way too large in bodice and hips. So re-ordered in my usual Boden size. Still wrong -- too small everywhere, especially in the seat which felt and looked like it was 2 sizes too small. My guess is that this dress might work with girlish straight figures.

    Lovely but tight across the hips

      I ordered this dress as part of my first Boden order. Sadly, while it was a beautifully made dress in a great fabric, the fit across the hips was too tight for me. It would have wrinkled and pulled while I sat. The top half fit like a dream. I ordered a 6 and I am 5'5'' 140 and wear a 4 or a 6 in most brands.

      • Wear To Work

      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...

        Tight around hips and bottom

          • Wear To Work

          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
