This dress is so cute on the model, but it was too big and not fitted enough. I ordered it in black, and, to be honest, it looked more like a funeral dress than the cute and classic work dress I was hoping for. I ended up returning, even though I really wanted it to work! A smaller size might have been better.

    Really cute dress. It seems to run large. I usually wear at 14 but after the last dress I ordered was too big, I ordered both a 14 and 12. The 12 fit perfect. I love the fabric and color. I almost passed it by since it was shown online in black. You can't see the details of the dress in that picture -I'm glad I looked at it in the magenta ( which is what I chose). I think this may look cuter with a belt. It looks great with tights and heeled Mary Janes.

        I ordered this dress in a 6L in the Black/Grey color because the stock of 6R was depleted. The 6L will need to be hemmed, but overall the proportions still work for my frame and the dress is very flattering. It doesn't cling, but hangs well due to the heft of the fabric. I will not need to wear spanx to look good in this dress! 5'4" 145 lbs

          I just received this dress last night; I tried it on and LOVED it! I have it on now, at work, and have already received compliments! It is really cute and true to size (I am 5'4" and 138 lbs.; I ordered a size 8R and it fits me perfect). I ordered it in the magenta and it is a beautiful shade that looks like what is pictured. The collar is super-cute, too...the only thing is, is that it would have been nice if the collar went all the way around the neckline, but it is still really cute and smart looking.

          Really cute -- maybe too girlish?

            This dress is really cute. I like the shape (it's flattering), the little under-bust seam in front is a nice touch, and the piped collar is adorable. But I have to say: I thought the A-line shape plus the piped collar would look pretty and a little sophisticated, but somehow they end up looking a little bit girlish in a non-good way. So I ended up returning it, even though I did like the dress! Maybe if the skirt were a little straighter? Anyway, it's cute and seems like it would wear well. And it runs true to size.

              This is an absolutely gorgeous dress! The pink color is beautiful, especially with the blue piping. The tighter bodice and A-line skirt creates a flattering shape. The only concern I have is that the back zipper comes down far, creating a a tiny bulge where it ends near my bottom. That tends to happen to me with anything that has a long zipper, so maybe it's just me. However, the rest of the dress is so perfect, I will not hesitate to keep it. I'm so glad I didn't pass this one up. For reference, I'm about 5'2" and 110 lbs; the 2R fits like a glove.

                I was afraid this dress would look dowdy, but it's not. It's a very flattering cut and makes the waist look small, and the material is nice and drapey. I bought the navy and grey and I preferred the navy-- without a contrasting color on the collar, the grey seemed a little too severe.

                  This is a cute dress to wear to work - the collar is what makes it really stand out. Also, the skirt flares a little more than I generally wear but not much and looks nice.

                    This is the best dress. I loved it so much I ordered the navy blue and then ordered another one in pink. The fit is perfect. The length is perfect. I am average height. I ordered a size 14R. It would work great with a sweater or blazer on chilly days and the fabric is not clingy. Also, the dress is lined so that was an extra bonus. I love lined dresses. Wonderful quality. Love you Boden!!!
