    A very practical and stylish dress. Not quite the Notch Neck of last year - material seems a little thicker though still very nice, and formal enough for work with a cardigan or jacket. The main differences are, of course, the cap sleeves which round the shoulders snugly and are very attractive (and usually I don't like cap sleeves!), and the back zip. Boden must have read all those anti-side zip comments, and here you have it, a back zip - certainly makes getting into this dress easier, however I was a pro-side zip person so I'm not totally thrilled with this change as it makes zipping harder and the fit not as snug. All in all, though, a great dress. The red/blue dotty pattern is pretty, red is bright and the neutral is a bit grey, not white.

      I really love this dress as a tailored office-wear option that allows me to remove my jacket in a conservative environment. The fit is a little different from other Boden cap-sleeve dresses, though. I wear a 14L in every other dress, but had to go up a size in this one due to the shoulders/sleeves/bust being just a little tighter than usual. This means the fit through the body is just a little less perfectly form-fitting than I am used to getting with Boden. I love the colors, which are great fun for summer!

        This was not at all like i expected, the fabric is a really casual textured but thick fabric and the pattern is not what I expected from the pictures either. ALSO it was way too small in the bust but on the big side in the hips

          I bought the notch neck shift a couple years ago and really liked it, I think the new one appears to be made of nicer quality fabric. I originally ordered my usual Boden size but found it was very tight in the bust area, so I ordered a size up. I am a size larger than my original notch neck shift which still fits me so just be advised that the fit of the dress is slightly different than earlier models. I got the Blue/green flower print and really like it but would advise anyone buying it that the background is darker, more of a nude color, than it appears in the photo.

          I was so excited to see this dress with blue paisley design offered! Unfortunately, when I opened the package, the background color was similar to a burlap sack, while the website made me think the background color was white to off-white. Then, I tried it on and it was certainly an odd fit! The shoulder was puffy on me, but the arm holes were so small it restricted my range of motion. I am very true to Boden sizing, but when I zipped this dress at my rib cage, it was more than snug. The waste and rear area were a good fit, though I noted for the style of dress, for which I have many, that it was tighter than others for the same size. I even tried on my other dresses to confirm regular fitting! Sadly, this is a rare return.

            The dress is great. I love the cut, fits really nicely. The waist falls in just the right place to be flattering under the bust but not look like a maternity dress. I love the colors and the pattern!

            Loved loved loved this dress (and so did my husband) but it's fit was smaller than most Boden size 8. Fit around the hips and waist but not around my bust (34DD). Will order a size 10 and get it tailored. Comfortable fabric and flattering colors.

              I love orange, but this orange seems a bit more fluorescent in person than it does in the picture online.

              This dress is beautiful. I bought the orange. However the fit was strange. I am 5'5" and 110lbs. The regular had a little too much material. Might try the petite if it comes in petite.
