    This is an absolutely gorgeous dress! The pink color is beautiful, especially with the blue piping. The tighter bodice and A-line skirt creates a flattering shape. The only concern I have is that the back zipper comes down far, creating a a tiny bulge where it ends near my bottom. That tends to happen to me with anything that has a long zipper, so maybe it's just me. However, the rest of the dress is so perfect, I will not hesitate to keep it. I'm so glad I didn't pass this one up. For reference, I'm about 5'2" and 110 lbs; the 2R fits like a glove.

      I was afraid this dress would look dowdy, but it's not. It's a very flattering cut and makes the waist look small, and the material is nice and drapey. I bought the navy and grey and I preferred the navy-- without a contrasting color on the collar, the grey seemed a little too severe.

        This is a cute dress to wear to work - the collar is what makes it really stand out. Also, the skirt flares a little more than I generally wear but not much and looks nice.

          This is the best dress. I loved it so much I ordered the navy blue and then ordered another one in pink. The fit is perfect. The length is perfect. I am average height. I ordered a size 14R. It would work great with a sweater or blazer on chilly days and the fabric is not clingy. Also, the dress is lined so that was an extra bonus. I love lined dresses. Wonderful quality. Love you Boden!!!

            This is a perfect dress for my work - can wear it in my casual office and it the offices of clients that have more conservative dress code. Love the collar - it's a great detail without being to "cutesy". The shape is great, and the weight is perfect for multi-season wear.

              I really like this Boden Dress as it combines style with comfort and has a unique peter pan collar design. I will wear it for work, church and possible for evening events.

                Looked so cute in the pictures. The top of the dress did not fit at all--managed to be too tight under the arms and too baggy in the front. Didn't work for me.

                I love everything with a peter pan collar, so was incredibly excited to order this dress. When it arrived, I was disappointing that it did not flatter my body type (slim, strait). It was the correct size in terms of the bust/torso but bagged out a bit too much below my waist. Looked more matronly than I would like for a 27-year-old. That said, it is well made (LOVED the thick material) and would likely look better on someone with more curves and smaller calves (my calves are muscular and this length just did not flatter).

                    I loved this dress when the Fall line came out and couldn't wait to order it. Well, I did wait until the sale, but I'm so glad I did. Its so cute. The cut is snug up top, nips in at the waist, and just skims my hips. Its hard to give up my addition to A-line dresses. They just work for me. I ordered the nave/magenta combo in 10L. I'm 5'8" and it stops just at my knees. Perfect for work.
