High hopes but fell flat

      Best Uses

        Got this is my usual size 6 and it was strangely too big yet tight in the arms. The waist seam is in a place that poofs out in an unflattering way. The waist really needs more nipping and structure to make it work. I'm going to try this in a 4 but I'm not sure that will help with the shaping of this dress.

          I was not sure how I would feel about this style, but when I put it on, it felt very feminine. My husband loved it! I got the brown and would get another if there were some other prints available--the big floral is just too loud.

          Cute but lots of extra material up top

          I ordered this dress hoping to wear it in an upcoming family photo shoot. It is cute but I had the opposite problem with it I have had with all the other Boden dresses I tried. This time there was too much material up top. All the other dresses I tried fit exquisitely on the bottom but were too snug in the chest, shoulders and arm pits. This one did fit in the bottom but was too roomy up top. No luck this year with Boden dresses. Such a shame, as there are so many cute one. Sigh...

          Gorgeous in Yellow

            The yellow dot print is gorgeous and bright. I'm 5'7', size 36A and 135 pounds. The dress fits wonderfully, and I got several compliments throughout the day. It fits fine for the smaller endowed. I don't normally like higher necklines but it works on this dress. It's definitely not casual and you couldn't wear with boots, otherwise it's great for work, evenings or out to breakfast. I'm considering ordering it in another color. The only drawback is that it is drip-dry and clearly will need an iron. As a working mom, I sometimes forget that I have an iron, but I'll be willing to pull it out for this dress.

            Terrible quality

                I have a closet full of Boden dresses, but this one was a huge disappointment. When I received it, the fabric was clearly cheap and the zipper was so badly attached it had already ripped the lining. When I managed to try on the dress, it was too big and too short in my usual size 2 (I'm 5'6, 120 lbs). Boden needs to start offering a size 2 long, as I've returned countless dresses for this same reason. Not everyone who fits a size two is short. They also need to watch their quality control. I've been a loyal customer and this dress was an insult.

                Cute dress, but way too tight in bust

                  The fabric is very pretty, the skirt has a nice drape, and the waist is well defined. Unfortunately, there was not nearly enough room in the chest. Too bad because the fabric and the rest of the cut makes it very versatile: I could see myself wearing it to work on a Friday, to a nice summer dinner with my husband, or to church or a wedding. I'm rather top heavy (30F), so it would probably work very nicely on someone with a significantly smaller top.

                        I used the sizing guide for this dress. It ended up being 2+ sizes too big for me. However, this was the case for all of the items in my order, so if you already know your size for other items from Boden, this should match that.

                        I opted to send it back as an exchange rather than a return because it looks so beautiful. I'm hoping the better size will be a perfect fit for me.

                            I ordered this dress in the china blue dotty spot and paired with a yellow cropped cardigan found on this site. It is a stunning dress and I got a few compliments at church when I wore it. It made me feel comfortable, I'm a cotton all the way kind of girl and I love the way it swings. It has become one of my favorite dresses.

                            The dress is quite pretty, although the amount of material in the skirt will make someone with slim hips look much larger. It seemed to run large, especially in the waist. I've exchanged it for a smaller size-- Hopefully, that will solve the problem!
