It's a lovely colored tent.

        I needed this coat for an upcoming trip. I paid extra for shipping to get it in time, so I'm so disappointed that it looks TERRIBLE on me. It is not fitted at all, it looks like a tent. I can't even say it's too big - it fits fine, but there's absolutely no definition at all around the waist. Returning this. Coatless again.

            I have a great coat wardrobe--long dressy, stylish hooded rain jacket, leather, wool duffle, pea coat--yet something was missing, and it's this darling velvet creation. A bit dressier but can also look casual with jeans. I chose grey since I can change it up with scarves and it suits my wardrobe the best. I live in California so the weight of it will be just right. I'm generally a 12-14 in Boden tops and dresses and decided to try the 12 and it's perfect--fits nicely through the shoulders and bust, a bit looser on the bottom but looks like it does on the models. Wouldn't want it too clingy, not right for the style.

            After reading a few reviews I decided to order up a size so it'd fit well with sweaters but that wasn't the best decision. The fit is very boxy. I wish it had a bit more shape. I want to pull it in a bit at the waist. I see how it'd look great in a smaller size because I love the look on the model, but sadly that look doesn't translate to my order. I'm on the fence about returning it. The fabric is lovely and it's well made, it's just not the most figure flattering coat on me. (5'7" - usually a 6, regret that I ordered the 8)

              I love this coat! The length is perfect! The shape compliments all figures, I am curvy and my sister is more of a pear and it looks wonderful on both of us! (I bought it for my sister as an early Christmas gift! We live in different states so we won't look goofy walking around together!). The colors are rich looking and pop. I bought the charcoal for myself and it is not dull looking at all. The purple is vibrant and my sister loves it! The look of the coat can be easily changed by the scarf I wear with it! Enjoy!

                    My first Boden coat and I love it!! I wanted the blue, but it was on backorder, so I went with the red because I wanted a color where the buttons stood out. This color is beautiful and the fit is perfect. I am 5'4 and love where it hits. Went with my normal Boden size 2….and fits great with room to layer.

                      I'm totally in love with this coat! The unexpected color combined with the classic style makes for a fun overall effect. It's not a heavy coat, but I will get a lot of wear out of it during North Carolina's fall, early winter and early Spring. This coat will be a perfect topper for work or a night out. I originally ordered my true size, but sent back for the next size up to get more room in the shoulders.

                        The moment I saw this coat I knew I had to have it...and when it arrived I knew I was right! I got the grey, although I really wanted the light blue...just felt the grey was more practical and would go with more. It's beautiful, well made like everything from Boden always is. We're having a warm streak here in Ohio, but I'm actually looking forward to cooler temps so I can break this beautiful coat out! I think it will be easy to dress up or down depending on what the occasion calls for, so versatile. I'm in love!

                        I ordered this coat in the light blue and couldn't wait to receive it. I usually love Boden's coats...I have at least five! As soon as it arrived, I tried it on and, somehow, it looked bulky across the back. The size was correct as it fit everywhere else. All of my other Boden coats create a slimming silhouette, but this one just didn't. Also, the fabric was a disappointment, I was picturing a stiffer old school velvet and this had some sheen and crinkle to it. Just not my cup of tea!
