    Bought for daughter. She will wear to work and is thrilled with the dress - fit, color, style, everything. This was my first Boden purchase so we used the sizing information provided and it worked beautifully. With a blazer and pumps she will be ready for work - with her leather jacket and ankle boots, a more casual fun look. She can also dress it up with jewelry and pumps for an evening out. A very versatile dress. We will definitely shop Boden more often. The quality is very good, the service was speedy and the dress is lovely.

    Questionably Matronly

      I was excited to try on this dress. The color is just the most perfect shade of orchid you can imagine, perfect for transitioning seasons. It looked beautiful when I took it out of the package, but once I put it on and took a look in the mirror, I immediately sent pictures to my friends, "does this make me look too matronly?" I'm busty, so the tubing over the torso was not flattering. Loving the color, but hating the fit, it took me 3 days to come around to returning it.

      I think it's best suited for a flat chested girl.

      Proportions all wrong, color off

          I am 5'10", 35.5" x 28" x 38". According to the size chart I am a 6L, which is what I ordered. The first thing I noticed is that the color is a more muted plum-ish type of pink, not the bright color in the catalog. The sleeves are 2" too short, and the waist is located more than an inch above mine, per usual with Boden tall sizes. Please fix these recurring errors, Boden. The cut of the bodice is really weird. The curved seams (like a pumpkin) cause a very round frumpy shape, shapelessly lumping the chest and stomach, not defining between the two. Paired with the very high neckline, it was not flattering. The chest and shoulders fit me correctly, but the waist was way too big (in addition to being in the wrong place), so the sizing chart is not correct.

            I like the warmth of this dress making it a great addition to the winter wardrobe. I agree the sleeves should be 3/4. I love the ballet neck and the choices of color. If there were less pleats , the dress will be more fitted and flattering on the bottom. I hope the material won't pill with wear. Overall I still like it and may consider buying in another color.

              Love this dress! I got it in blue & pair it with a skinny belt & 2 inch nude or patterned heels. The 6R fit me perfectly (my American measurements are 36-26-38, 5'6"). It's very flattering & will be great for fall & winter. And when it gets really cold, pair it with a long/layered necklace, thick tights & coat & scarf. This dress was worth every penny!

              I loved the look of this dress in the photos, but was sadly disappointed when it arrived. It felt overall a bit too small, short-wasted and much shorter in length than what the photos show. I will try the next size up, but I'm not too hopeful. Generally, Boden's quality and sizing is good, so this was that much more disappointing.

                I like this dress! The skirt bells out a bit on me and ends right at the knee. The seaming in the bodice emphasizes the chest and shoulders. I am 5'4 and 135 lbs and ordered the size 8. Sleeves were a little fuller than I expected, but concerned that 6 would be too tight across bust. Once it gets cooler, I'll enjoy wearing it!

                I so so so wanted to love this dress and ordered it in the pink and the citrine, but it was horrid. And sadly I'm returning both. If you're a tiny little waifish thing this dress may work for you, but if you have any sort of cleavage, this dress will only serve to make you look very heavy. Also, the model is wearing a Long size. The regular hit far above the knee on me (I'm 5'8") and looked childish. I'd love to see this style revamped a bit to be more flattering. If it were, I'd buy it in every color!

                  I am so excited for the fall to come so I can start wearing this dress. I have tried it on and it fits beautifully. This will be on heavy rotation through the winter.
