Great, classic dress

    I bought this dress mainly to wear to work. It fits fabulously and is quite flattering. That fabric is thick and the dress is lined, so it doesn't show all the bumps, while still having some shape. (And believe me - I have some bumps to hide). The only drawback to the thick fabric is that this will not work as well in the peak heat of summer.

    The style has a little interest of its own with the piping and the pockets, but it is easy to dress up with accessories to change the look.

    This will be a classic in my closet. Good for fall/spring.

    I love this dress and the fit is wonderful, but sadly it's headed back. It's just so solid in color with no flair... Johnnie, you've spoiled me! It needs a pop of color or a fabulous scarf or something...
    A change of ribbon trim?

    Great fabric but so-so fit

    I ordered the pink. The fabrics used in this dress are great and the color is fantastic. Unfortunately, the fit is just okay on my hour-glass shape. I ended up ordering a size smaller than I normally do because the larger size was baggy around the waist. Ultimately, my husband said it was too boxy looking on me and so both sizes went back. Too bad because it was SO comfortable, and I think would have washed quite well.

        This dress is classic and lovely, if not just a tad plain. I found it to be versitile. It was not quite what I was looking for so I am returning it, but if you are looking for a nice classic piece, this dress fits the bill.

          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.
