    I love this dress - especially its versatility. This dress is appropriate for work, dressier occasions, or a more casual day out and about when you just want to feel pretty. The cut is very flattering, and the dress looks even better on (and it looks terrific on a hanger!). The orange flame color is also very flattering on, and gets lots of compliments.

      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.
