    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!

          For me, the dress was a little too boxy but I liked the material and the weight of the material. If it was cut a little slimmer I would have loved it.

            There is nothing better than opening a boden package, seeing the dress you loved online and then putting it on and loving it more! The fit is great, the material seems durable but it's not stiff, a nice interior slip, and the pleated detail on the bodice makes it a statement dress on its own. The fit is very true to size. Had it been an inch shorter, it would not have worked, but the length will be just fine. Hits about 1.5" above my knee. I have a short torso so others with a longer torso may feel comfortable with the long length. I'm 5'5", 125 lbs average in most ways and the fit is perfect in a 4R. Now if boden would just expand the colors to more spring ones, I will buy in multiples!
