I'm wearing it right now! This is a fun, summery dress that looks great on. It runs a little big, so I had to get a size smaller. And it is linen, so it does wrinkle easily, but still a great casual summer dress.

    I cannot say enough good things about this dress! Great fit, lovely colors and design and it has pockets! Bought the blue and every time I wear it I receive many compliments. Looks wonderful with the yellow t-strap sandals.

    Too stretchy & big

    I was shocked at how large the skirt was and just how much stretch there was in the material. I've purchased many Boden skirts and the fit has always been impeccable. This one is just way too large - like a full size larger - I had to recheck the label. Like others have noted, the a-line is quite bell-like and sturdy in shape. I don't mind it but it is way too large in the hips and the waist. Because I'm in Canada and returns are a hassle, I'll just have this taken in at the tailor. it is a lovely skirt though and I'm sure when it fits I'll get plenty of wear out of it.

    I love Boden`s linen dresses, and I was looking forward to have this one in all colors, that much I love it. But it didn`t fit me well. Size petite 6 was to loose and petite 4 tide in midsection. I`m 5`1, 125 pounds and I`m really sad about not having this beautiful dress.

      I am thrilled with the comfort and style level of this dress. Orange is such an in color right now - the new black - and the linen helps to tone it down a notch. I usually take a size 8 and it fit fairly true to size, if anything, it runs a little larger, but that is probably just the style of the dress. It's very comfortable and classy. I ordered an 8 long instead of an 8 regular as I read the reviews. I am barely 5'6 and 143 lbs.

          I already have this style dress in a more colorful pattern, but the one I chose (the orange floral) was too busy on me. Everything else about the dress was just fine. It's a great, casual dress, and I wear it everywhere, including when I travel. Just find the pattern that's right for you!

            I bought this to wear to work and love it. it's a gorgeous color (I got pink), flattering, and the high neck ensures I don't have to worry about anything showing. Got a ton of compliments and "Where did you get that dress?" questions.

              This is a great summer dress to wear to farmers markets, to the pool, to lunch...actually for just about any daytime activities. The print is bold, bright and fun. The linen is a high quality, dense weight that makes it cool but not excessively wrinkly.

                This dress did gape a bit in my upper back, but most dresses do if I lift my arms up over my head. When that happens, I normally take the dress to the alteration shop, because the rest fits too perfectly to just return the dresses.
