Lovely Linen -Practical, but a Bit Dowdy

Best Uses

    I got this in navy, size 2R. I liked the fit, and - as always - it is well-crafted. But the sleeves are too long, and the tabs with the rolled sleeve make it bulky. The hem-length hits at the bottom of the knee. It just reads a bit dowdy. I sent it back. So many other wonderful and flattering things from which to choose!

        Great shame that what would have been the perfect summer dress could not have been made with a simple panel of fabric amidships. Completely transparent dress; alas, had to send it back.

            Bought this in the navy--it's lovely. The fabric is the right weight and not see-through.

            a great linen dress

              I got this in my usual 10R and it fits well. The robin's blue color is so nice with my blue eyes. The linen is going to lead to fierce wrinkling, however, so it just be a summer weekend dress, or a casual work day dress. I love the pintuck detailing! Although I have another of Boden's linen shirt dresses (in black, and I wear it a lot), I am not SO keen on the roll-up sleeve, button-tab. I get that this gives us options, but because I always roll up, it adds unnecessary bulk.

              Cute but short waisted

                I'm tall, and ordered the dress for a taller person; the skirt has additional fabric to accommodate height, but the length from shoulder to waist is definiately for someone in the 5'5" range. Much too short in the waist for my 5'9" body. Nicely made, however.

                I am between size 14 and 16. The last several dresses size 14 have fit very well. This dress fit well except too tight at bust. I think size 16 will be too large at shoulders, waist and hips. I would recommend it for a smaller busted women. I have been looking for a shirt dress, unfortunately the search continues.

                Going Back

                    Unfortunately, this one is going back. I love shirt dresses and they are normally very flattering on me, but the length of this one (almost to bottom of knee) made me look dowdy. Additionally, as another reviewer has stated, the dress is pre-washed or made to look weathered or something, but really it just looks like you've had the dress for years and it's time to get rid of it.

                      This is a lovely, stylish dress, that transitions from the office to evening drinks on the terrace. It's linen, so expect wrinkles. The material is soft and the cut is flattering. The blue color is deliberately faded, which keeps it casual for summer. One of my favorite Boden buys in years!

                          It just didn't fall well and the navy color seems faded. Sadly, it's going back.
