        This is adorable! Can't wait to wear it. I am normally a 6 long in Boden dresses but I got the 6 regular in this because the throwback shift look is cuter a bit shorter.

        It runs very large. I am generally size 6 dress, but a size 4 would have been better. I chose to keep it, however, because it still looks great loose.
        It can be worn for a casual look with tall boots and no tights, or it can be dressed up with heels. I love the lining which makes it feel so comfortable. I feel pretty in this dress!

            Classic dress. Good for work and possibly also for dinner. Seems to run a little bit big, not too big though, but if you are in doubt, size down. I am 5 feet 5 inches and between a 6 and 8 and the 6 is great, even roomy. I can picture this with either a jacket for work or a cardigan. Love it. Very nice and comfortable.

              Love this shift. Bought it in the beetroot/orchid colorway and bought the jacket that matches and wear it as a suit, but also can wear the pieces separately.Feel it is true to size, and fits as a shift should, ie no defined waist.

              I hoped this would be my new fall/winter wardrobe work horse, comfortable yet stylish. My regular size (10L) was so big that I wondered if it had been mismarked. I'm sending it back and hoping the 8 will work. The fabric was substantial and seems durable. It could be a great piece, if only it fit.

                This is a very nice dress. The material is more dressy than I expected for being listed as a work dress--it is a bit shiny and thinner than it looks in the photos. This isn't bad, just not the thicker wool that I was somehow expecting. The fit is not too boxy as others have written--it is a shift, so it is not supposed to have a defined waistline! I am 5'4" and 120 lbs and the size 4 fit perfectly.

                Thought this looked beautiful on the site. And the navy and black is a beautiful pattern, but the dress was crazy stiff and somehow ended up being very unflattering in the middle, even with the A line shape. Very sad but I am returning this!
