Loved the dress and the style. I am not tall, 173 centimeters, but the waist line is never where it's supposed to be. Every dress feels like a bib, as if tied up to my neck.

    I bought this dress to wear to a wedding. Not sure it is dressy enough for that, but I just love it and will wear it happily as a casual dress. It is comfortable and I like the fit and the way it drapes. The hibiscus color is stunning!

    If I had gotten another color besides black i may have liked this dress but the black color and the surprisingly heavy weight fabric just didn't work for me. The bottom was also overwhelming with heave fabric.

    This dress is beautifully made and feels very comfortable on. I really wanted to like this dress but I had to send it back because it was just not flattering on my figure. The waist was cut very high and all that fabric really shortened and widened my torso.

      This dress in a 12R made me look really fat. I could have maybe gone with a 10, but it wouldn't have helped. I thought it might fall nicely and cover up a bit of a middle bulge, but instead, it made me look like a cow. I think this would be better for a much younger, thinner person. Also, the fabric is very heavy for a short sleeve dress. I'm not sure what kind of weather you would wear that in.

        This is a great basic to have in the wardrobe. I'm 5'9" and got the tall and the waist falls exactly where it should. Depending on your accesories this can be worn to work or out.

          I love this dress! I got the L because I'm 5'11" and it was perfect - the regular probably would have been fine, but the extra length really enhanced the swinginess of the skirt. The dress had some creases from being folded in the packaging, but they all fell out after a few days of the dress being on the hanger. The material is heaver than I expected, which is why I probably wouldn't wear the dress just out and about on the weekends and will keep it for fun workwear.

            This is a style of dress that works well for me in general (pear to hourglass, with a slightly high waistline), and the Portland Place dress didn't disappoint. It's the usual high Boden quality: the hand of the material is soft although the fabric is rather weighty (which does make the very short sleeves a little odd from the POV of seasonableness); the blue color is simply lovely.

            The only reason it didn't receive 5 stars from me is that the shoulder line fit a little off: the dress wants to sit just slightly higher than the neck (it's not tight at the waist so it's not riding up). Since I will wear it with a sweater or jacket most of the time, this isn't a serious problem--and maybe a trip to the tailor can take care of it. Given the sale price, it was just too good to pass up.

            I was very pleased when I received this dress, the color is beautiful (blue). Based on other recommendations, I ordered a size down and it fits perfectly (size 12). I am 5'5 and 36DDD bust. I am a professional and like modest necklines. V-Necks always make me nervous, but this cut is really nice. The placement is high enough that there isn't any cleavage but defined enough that it adds interest to the neckline and also minimizes your chest. The shape does give a small waist and then a very full skirt. The fabric is really nice quality but it is a little heavy and has some stretch, wouldn't be an ideal summer dress but spring, fall, and winter it is perfect. Definitely Boden quality.

              Great dress that goes from day to night. I will wear it with wedges for during the day and then strappy gold shoes for nighttime. Very comfortable - skirt is a pretty full skirt but pleating makes it hang flat.
