I so wanted this dress to work!

I really wanted this dress to work. I have all five colors of the Libby dress and was looking to add some more colors to my work wardrobe. I thought this dress would be similiar. However, the Leila fit is different enough to not work for me. I ordered my usual size 6, and while it fit fine across the hips and waist, it was tight on the chest and through the arms. Also, the zipper was about impossible to zip. On the plus side, the colors were gorgeous and the fabric was the quality and durability I expect from Boden. But because of the fit and the zipper I had to send it back.

When I took this item out of the bag, I was thrilled with the vibrant orange color. As soon as I held it up, I knew that it was definitely too short. Even my size in a tall length did not work. When I tried the dress on, I found it to be a little too short-waisted for me. This is the first item I have ever returned to Boden.

    Great dress! Nice fabric and style. Fits well. They only reason that I give four starts is because the skirt proportion. It could have been made narrower to have a more fitted look. Still a keeper!

        This comfortable ponte dress looks so stylish in the black/pearl stripe. It is perfect for work. It is the item that makes you look so together, when really it was so very easy to throw on and run.

          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.
