    It is a very slim and narrow fit. The fabric is thick enough to be flattering. Very pretty. Needs a little cardigan or jacket to be office appropriate.

      I got this dress in black and in R14. Depending on the fit, I usually wear a 12, but if fitted through the hips, a 14. The fit is perfect! I'm curvy, so sometimes it is a challenge to get a good fit in the bodice as well as the hip. And the best part? It is so comfortable while being very stylish. Easy to move in and stays in place. Can't wait to wear this to work!

      I purchased this dress in red for an upcoming wedding with an Asian theme. I loved the red color and the design of the dress. It seem to hug in all the right places. It is also thick and comfortable. The only thing I didn't love was the threads in the zipper area that seem to be pulling out. I am going to clip them off and hope for the best.

      Unfortunately this dress was another example of Boden clothing with a boxy fit that just doesn't suit me. I will keep trying because I have a few pieces from Boden that I get compliments on every time I wear them for the last 4 years! But this is going back

        Love this dress! I ordered a size 6 and probably could have gone down a size. I am 5'4" and 120 pounds curvy, not straight and the fit was a little loose in the middle of the dress. I had it altered a bit for a better fit. I went for the larger size from other reviews. Aside from the slightly big fit the dress is great. It's a nice soft material and will be versatile for all seasons. Highly recommend!

        I just can't understand Boden dresses, I have ordered many over the years, and most go back. I am 5'6",34A and usually wear a US4 and sometimes as US6 in most US high street stores. I'm bigger on the bottom than up top. When I order a Boden US6, it's usually too tight on the top, and flattens me, but is a bit loose on the hips. I got a US8 in this dress. It fits wonderfully on the top, but is roomy around the tummy, hips and bottom. I don't have children - is that the problem? I know these clothes are designed for mothers. When put this dress on I just sort of feel mumsy and fat, like so many other Boden clothes. I keep ordering because I like the designs, but....
        The fabric is fine on this dress, but it isn't as high quality as it looks in the picture, it's only lined at the top (kind of strange!)so has the potential to be clingy.

        I watched this dress FOREVER until it went 40% off. Once I received it, I was truly let down. The material was not the best quality. For the original price, it should be lined. The style and design was great but just fell short of my expectations.

          I bought this dress to wear to a wedding. It is a perfect tailored look. The material is comfortable and giving. The dress will easily transition to a work setting or a date. I have paired it with the tie front cardigan for a spring day - but it will look perfect without a sweater in the summer.

            I tried the blue. The fit was good, except the zipper kind of flared out in the back. I could see every lump & bump even though the dark color. Sent it back. Would probably be better on a less curvy figure.
