    I've had a number of similar cotton dresses over the years and this is by far the best one I've owned. It is lightweight and perfect for summer. It is thick enough to hide lumps and fell nicely on my imperfect body.

      I have this dress in three patterns and wear them mainly for work. It would be totally fine for a brunch or anything else, but since they're soooooo comfortable it's nice to have on at the office. The prints are very pretty. I ordered the pink fern and sent that one back for blue because I found the pink too bright, it looked more red to me in the photos but it's definitely a bright pink. The aqua blue fern is perfect. Great color. The only down side is that the neckline is a bit low. Call me prim & proper, but I don't like for any cleavage to show especially at work, and this can be a bit challenging, I think I will just add a few stitches to keep the v-part together.

      comfy, but unflattering

        I have several Boden dresses, tops, and skirts that I love. This dress, however, was a huge disappointment. For reference I'm 5"9', 135 lbs, and wear a U.S. size 6. In this dress I ordered a size 6L. The shoulder seams were in the right place and the length was great at just below the knee.

        First off, let me say that this is an incredibly comfortable dress -- seriously, it's like the dress version of yoga pants.

        Unfortunately that's the only positive thing I can say about the dress. The wrap top design at the top can't be worn without a cami underneath. If you bend or twist wrong you'll have a massive "wardrobe malfunction" (although that might be a positive for any nursing moms...). I was pretty disappointed since one of the positive things about Boden tops or dresses is that usually they don't require a cami underneath. The shape and cut are also way off. The best thing I can say about it is that it looks kind of like a cross between a house dress and a hospital gown.

        In the end I ended up keeping the dress to wear as a nightgown (did I mention that it's ridiculously comfortable?!). I'd already exchanged it for a different pattern hoping that would help and didn't feel like sending it back again. It's great for a nightgown, but I wouldn't wear it in public.

              I initially bought this in a 14L in navy (I'm 5'7", hourglass shape, short waisted & size 12/14) in the spring but retuned it because the armholes and gathering below the bust hung too low. Still searching for a versatile dress that could be dressed up or down depending on shoes & accessories, I reordered in a 12L - perfect fit! The bustline is now very flattering and only requires pinning if I need to be extra modest that day (if wearing to work at a casual office you'd probably want to pin it). The length is just below the kneecap on me. Compliments have flowed! My advice is to size down if you initially find the fit a bit saggy or frumpy.

                I bought 3 dresses to see if one would work for a wedding. I am keeping all of them. This one is the most casual and I won't wear to the wedding but can't wait to wear in NYC. It is very comfortable and very well make. Not thin at all. Washes very well and keeps its shape. Very original, like Boden. It is cut a little low in front for my age but have already tried it with a lacy camisole and it looks nice and works well.

                    I wanted to love this dress and bought it in nearly every available color & pattern in my size but my husband suggested I send them all back b/c he just didn't think any of the dresses were flattering. It's too bad because they were comfortable on, but they really just didn't do it for me.

                      I love this dress, and by now have it in five different colors. It's a very casual dress that I wear at home and on weekends- incredibly comfortable and basically feels as if you're wearing pajamas.

                      But when I recently bought the Bluebell Pretty Spot color- expecting, well, blue- the dress I received was a lilac-y purple. Boden's returns are excellent and I promptly received the Pewter Pretty Spot to add to my collection but I would have loved the light powder-y blue that I thought I was ordering.
