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.

                  Really wanted to love this dress but the size that fit me in the hips and waist was just huge in the top. Baggy in the chest area and gaping holes in the underarm area. Not flattering at all on me, so had to return. Love the fabric and colours, though! Bummer. The linen Casual Tunic fit me way better. This dress would probably work better on someone very lean with no hips.

                  This dress caught my eye right away and I ordered it in 12L. When it arrived, I was swimming in it; it was cut quite larger than I expected. I used America measurements, though, so perhaps I should have ordered down. When I called to reorder the smaller size, it was all out of stock. Super sad face. I like the dress, would have loved to have it. It was sheer, so beware!! Watch your sizing and you'll be quite satisfied, I am sure.

                      I ordered this is the Bright Orange Beach floral. I really wanted to like this dress, but I think it's best suited for those who are less curvy. I average a US4 (UK 8-10), but this dress just came up a bit too narrow on the hips for me, and it made be look broad across the shoulders. I was hoping to love this dress, but it didn't do anything for me, so it's going back.
