    Buy this dress!! I have this dress in Hot Pink, and WOW! The design makes me look amazing, so much that I have had so many compliments, head turns, and catcalls on the street. It is a fitted dress, but not too fitted to feel exposed or uncomfortable. I am a very modest dresser and don't like to flaunt, and this dress is conservative enough, yet so flattering to the shape, that I am not hiding my figure. In fact, the seaming, the fabric, and the cap sleeves seem to hide my flaws. It might be hard to believe, since it is a fitted dress, but you have to buy it to believe. I bought the same dress in gray. It will not disappoint!

      This is a beautiful dress. It is very flattering and comfortable. I am 5'5", 120 lbs. I ordered the 4R and it fits perfectly. The ribbon on the dress is beautiful detail. The quality and beauty of the dress are consistent with Boden. I love the dress!

      I really wanted this dress to look good on me but it did not. The hot pink color was beautiful and the length was perfect for work. The waist was a little big for me but with a wide belt it would have worked. The problem was that the cap sleeve looked baggy on me- I have thin arms. I am 5'7 and wear a size 10. If your arms are not thin this might work for you.

        I love Boden dresses! I like this dress, but it's not my favorite, the material is quite heavy, and the lining is a jersey. I was hoping for this to be more of a spring/summer dress, but I would sweat to death in this in the Vegas heat, I did keep as I will wear in the fall, just hoping the jersey lining does not pose sticking or clinging problems with tights. The pockets are great. The fit is roomier than other Boden dresses I have in the same size, length is right at the knee ( I'm 5'6"). It's a tad sack like, but if I returned for a smaller size I fear it would not be as flattering in the tummy area as it is not the most forgiving of material. Extremely well made.

            I was hoping this would be perfect for work. I love the bright pink. Unfortunately, I ended up sending it back because it was too baggy in the bust and thus gave me a frumpy look. It was easy to slip on, but for me the size 2R was too large. I'm 5'7" 34B, 110# and usually the Boden ponte dresses fit perfectly. Hope you're not succumbing to vanity sizing Boden please!!

              Always get compliments when I wear this dress. I'm 5'2" and 125. Wear a size 6 or 8. Bought an 8. This dress shrunk oh so slightly after I washed it. Now the length is perfect and it fits like a glove. Bought the pink. Wish it came in more bright colors. Green, aqua, lilac...

              Really great dress, but runs large. I think it will be a very flattering cut when I receive the size down.

                Beautiful heavy weight fabric and nicely detailed with ribbon trim. Can be dressed up with heels and jewelry but would be lovely with sandals as well. I got the longer length because I think it makes it more of a special night out dress. Great quality for the price. Like everything from Boden, they always have special details that set their product apart from anything else in the price range.
