      I ordered this dress in black hoping it would be my basic black, go-to dress... But atlas it was not to be. It fit good in the waist but the darts were strangly sticking out so I guess I don't have "enough" to fill them up. Also if one has any kind of a tummy it will show in this design.

          This dress is really classic and easy to wear. I used the size guide to select a size and wasn't thrilled with how it fit. Though it fit everywhere else, it was too long through the shoulders, making it hang a bit funny under the arms, dropping the waist a bit too low and allowing the neckline to hang too low. It required alterations to take out some material from the top of the shoulder.

              I really thought I would love this dress but it was a bit snug across the back and bulky at the hips. I ordered a size 8 (my normal size) and just felt incredibly "frumpy" in this dress. Returning it. I was so disappointed. I have other Boden dresses that I love though, so I will try another style!

                I bought this dress for an upcoming business trip, and I just love the shape and feel of the fabric. It is a lovely dark blue, and the fabric is nice and heavy, with a lining in the skirt that I wasn't anticipating. The only this I would change are the sleeves, which are a little too long (more bracelet sleeves, rather than below the elbow). But overall, I am very happy with this dress!

                  I purchased this dress with the intent of wearing it to work, but I think it might be a little too 'poofy' on me for my very conservative work place (I have a very pear-shaped body and my curves enhance the poof-factor a bit). That being said, that's just a personal preference and the dress is super flattering otherwise, so I plan to keep it for other uses! I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this dress - it is soft, yet sturdy and appears very well made. The shape of the dress is very flattering and feminine. I am 5'6"/~150lbs. and ordered sizes 6 and 8 for comparison as I tend to be in between sizes everywhere - the size 6 is slightly loose on me, but in a comfortable way, so the dress is slightly smaller than what I was expecting based on the measurements listed. I would definitely recommend this dress as it could be a multi-functional piece: date night, work, special events, etc.

                  I ordered this item twice too and waiting for the third order to come. I orderd the smallest size you make, it would have been better I think if it came in a petite. You should have more petite items, your clothes are all cut soooo big compared to other vendors of similar style and price. If it does not fit, I give up, I have had to send back almost everything but the PJS and I wont be able to buy anything anymore, too bad because your style is hard to find.

                  I bought this dress during a promotion and could not wait to get it. I bought my usual Boden size 6 in dresses and it fit perfectly everywhere-EXCEPT in the bust area. The seams on the bust were sewn off centered, so that my bust pointed outward. I am smaller in the bust area and probably could have used a (heavily) padded bra to fill out the seams, but I didn't want to have to wear specific undergarments to wear the dress. Sadly, I returned it, heartbroken, because it was a perfect black dress to have in my wardrobe.

                    Feels so comfortable thanks to the stretchy material. Looks elegant, but beware if you are pear shape like me, there is something about the voluminous skirt that makes my backside look huge!

                    I was so excited about this dress. I ordered it for my college graduation this December. It's a beautiful dress but a little boxy on. I wish it fit better. I had to send it back.
