    Beautiful fabric but tight in hips

    This is an incredibly beautiful dress and the fabric has such a silky feel against your skin. The style reminds me of a dress my mom would have worn in the 50s! So pretty. This is the first time I bought a Boden dress. Is the English sizing small compared to America's? I typically wear a size 4 dress so I ordered this in a 4. The waist fit fine but the hips are too small and it's tight on my butt. I will be exchanging it for a size 6. I am 5'6", weigh 120 lbs, and have a 26" waist and 36" hips.

          This dress fits true to size and comes down almost to the knee. For me (5'6", 128lb) a 6R fit well. With Boden dresses, I am never fully sure whether to get a 6 or 8 (and R or L) as the cut changes quite significantly between dresses, but this worked on the first try.

          Grey print is a little somber

            I've been shopping for a dress for my niece's wedding and thought I would try this one in the grey print since the price was so good, and the shipping was free. I returned it. The fit was good through the bodice, the waistline was a little too high, and I could have used a little more room through hips. I am 5'10", 165 lbs and ordered sized 10 long. If I had liked the print better, I would still have considered keeping it, but the print was just not happy enough for a wedding. I don't love the other choices enough to pay the much higher price. Fortunately, I still have plenty of time before the wedding to find the perfect dress!

              I was truly impressed with the quality of this dress and how well made it is. I can't wait to wear it to work and an upcoming wedding. Very versatile and can be dressed up or down; comfortable and soft fabric as well.

                Wanted to love this dress but it just hung on my curves....just didn't have that usual fit and appeal that is trademark Boden. I love the vintage pattern and I'm sure if you're more of a wispy gal this could be your dress. Just sent back today :-(

                    I am 150lb, 5"6" and the 8 R fit was a little too tight. I got the gray color. I could have done with a 10R but had ordered other dresses I liked better - Jacquard spot and Darcey dress.

                        Just one more review on this great dress to say - BODEN, please make this in different fabrics for each season. I keep pulling this dress out....several times a week. It is perfect and so comfortable.
