    The fabric was a pique/tricot material - not what I expected from a ponte dress, but it is very heavy and luscious. The dress fits perfectly and has just the right amount of gathering in the skirt to be nice and full. I am 5'9" and ordered the 10L and it comes to the middle of my kneecaps. The orange color is beautiful and I love the dress so much I went back and ordered the black and white stripe too. Another quality piece from Boden!

      I love comfort but I do like looking stylish and put together. I love a dress that allows me both. This stripped dress looks snappy without doing much than adding great shoes and a handbag.

      I did see the review that it did not wash well. I had a Boden stripped knit fabric issues before so I intend to get this one dry cleaned only but really because it fits so well on top and forgiving on my winter thighs, I want it to last a while. It is a relief to step out in something feminine and fun after such a long winter.

        A "go to" dress. Style it up or down. So comfortable. Pops with color.

        I loved the feel and style of this dress. However I found that even though I am small...the back of this dress shows everything! So not flattering!! It either needs to be lined or a bit more thicker fabric for the back. The orange was a cool color but wasn't great with my pale skin.

          just received this dress yesterday and I am happy with it. The color is a vibrant orange, the fit is almost right on - ordered a 10L (I am 5 ft 6, pear shaped and weigh 145) so I almost always have a hard time with garments that are too big up top in order to accommodate my bottom. this one is actually the opposite where the top is a nice fit and there is just a pinch too much fabric in the skirt - nothing my crafty tailor can't fix. It is comfortable, and the length is flattering.

          if johnnie b can figure out how to alleviate the 10 day-shipping delay from the mother-land - i might b more inclined to exchange instead of tailor.

            Fits well, looks really neat, feminine and classic on. Longer length hides knees nicely.

              This dress actually looks better on than the picture given here! Rare, I know, but this dress cannot fit any nicer to your figure. Flattering, slightly different lines so it is updated and falls perfectly. I have worn this dress to work, out to dinner with heels and with flats shopping around. I would sleep in it if I could and wake up and wear again.
