      Odd fitting/sizing

      I rarely return Boden purchases for problems with sizing, which has always been spot-on until this season. I am 5'9", 140lbs, athletic build and ever since I started shopping with Boden (12 years ago when they only had British sizing) I have been a 12UK/8US (L for skirts/dresses). The dress was loose fitting in the bodice, but would have been fine if the skirt didn't appear to be 2 sizes bigger than the top half of the dress--the tiny gathers/tucks didn't help and made the dress poofy around the middle. Worse, I could have taken in the skirt 2-3 inches on each side. As always, the fabric is beautiful, and elegant (I bought tropical peach) and the dress seems well made with Boden's usual attention to detail. Whether it is a sizing or design issue, this dress just didn't work and it is going back.

          All day long my husband continued to comment how pretty I looked in this color. The yellow version of this dress is beautiful and vibrant. The pattern is just the right size too. I usually wear a Boden size 6 or 8. I initially held off because many reviewers commented on the this colorway as being muted and that the cut of the dress was overall ill fitting. But, in other pics on the website, you can see that the dress is definitely more lively.I got non stop compliments the first day I wore it. I'm glad I ignored the negative comments on both the color and the shape of this dress. I feel beautiful when I'm wearing it. I definitely recommend this one!

          I wanted to love this dress since the print was so cute, but the fit was off. This dress has those weird pleats at the waist that cause a poofy section to form over your tummy. I would have kept it if it had laid flat.

          I purchased this dress in the coral and navy colors. They are both lovely and very useful for spring and summer. The fabric is thinner than I had imagined, it is 95% polyester and has a sheen. I think it will be pleasant for summer because of the lightweight nature of the fabric.
          What surprises me is the fit. I usually wear size 14 dress in Boden and this dress is swimming on me. I am large-chested (36DDD) and even the top is loose. I will have to take the waist in an inch on each side to keep it from moving around and looking too loose. I need to wear it this week or I would send for a 12. This is so unusual that I am noting it. I would definitely order a 12 if you usually wear a 14.

              So much prettier than it appeared online. The fabric is silky yet textured, the bodice fit like a dream. A very pretty, grown-up dress for a nice occasion, or maybe the office with a jacket. I gave it 4 stars only because my husband thought it obscured my waist.

                  What a surprise. I ordered the yellow print, and it was in a material that was actually heavier than I had thought based on the picture, with an attached lining included. So, if you are looking for something thin and light, then this wouldn't be the right one for you. However, it was true to size, and although I ordered in regular length because my size wasn't offered in petite, it did not require hemming. Just a word of warning, for me, I had to have someone available to zip me up because I couldn't do the back zipper all by myself.
