    I rarely (if ever) post comments/reviews, but I really love this dress. I got it in the mail last night, and wore it to work today...and received two compliments within the first 30-minutes of being in the office.

    This dress is sophisticated, well-made (great lining), and flattering.
    I am kind of pear shaped, and I love the fit of this dress on my body.

    Highly recommend!

        I really wanted to love this dress - it's a beautiful shade of blue and the shape of the dress looked great on the hanger. However, the fabric is quite itchy and the fit was very odd, especially below the hips. Sadly, I had to send it back.

          The rolled collar attracted me right away, and who can't use another black dress in her wardrobe? When I tried it on, it was a lot more stylish than I expected- classy, and a little sassy. I'm short so the petite option is always a plus. I work in a conservative, low-key environment. This dress will feel comfortable for sitting most of the day. It has the little bit of polish I need to feel professional, and the figure flattering details to feel stylish.

            I loved this dress.. the color and fabric is awesome. However once I put it on, I realized something was wrong with one of the sleeves. The stiching was off causing the sleeve to do a strange pucker where it meets the back piece. I'm going to assume this was just a mishap for this one and try reodering it again.

              I almost didn't buy this dress as I thought it might be too business-y, but I am really glad I did. I got the black, and it is incredibly flattering. The neckline is so pretty and the length is not too short, as is sometimes true with Boden dresses. I got the 10R, which is my usual size. The waist isn't very fitted so I wore it with a belt, but the neckline, sleeve length and skirt length all made this one a winner. Fabric is nice and thick but not scratchy. Good for cold days.

              Oh, I so wanted to love this dress, but it looked like I was wearing a garbage bag. I think if you are smaller on top, it would probably drape properly. But ... um ... not on me. It actually made me look rather heavy. Sigh. And back it goes.

                I ordered this dress in both black and blue and both regular and long. With Boden, I usually end up keeping the longer dresses, but with this one, the shorter dress looked better. I wanted to love and keep both the blue and black dresses, but the blue one just really didn't look all that great on me. I sent it back and kept the black one.

                It goes great with a bold handbag.

                  A great dress for work and conference wear. The sixties style is fantastic, and the ponte knit makes it very comfortable. Some minor strangeness in the seams along the skirt sides, but does not detract from the appearance or fit. With this in my closet, I look forward to the next time I need to give a talk!

                  I read all the reviews before purchasing this dress, and although they were mixed I decided to buy it anyway. It definitely fit terribly on my body. It was enormous through the hips and at the lower back, but just the right size through the bust. Despite the bad cut the dress is really well made and is a thick and fully lined fabric. I really didn't want to return it because I love the neckline so much, so I ended up having it tailored into a pencil shape. It looks outstanding now! It's my new favorite dress!
