    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 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.

          I love to dress this up with some jewelry or other accessories for work. It's also great for a casual weekend. It's no muss, no fuss, and looks great! Also, the added bonus: I am a brestfeeding mom, and this lets me feed by baby comfortably. Best of all, it'll be part of my normal wardrobe!

          Dress edging coming off

            I have three of these dresses. I love them for summer. I am having one problem. The one I got last summer has the solid color piping coming off the fabric. It just rolls off leaving a raw edge. I hadn't really noticed because it was the on the back neck area. I got two more this summer and after the first hand washing the piping rolled off the entire dress. Down both sides of the bodice and the back neck. I have been trying to repair it but it just comes off again. Does anyone else have this problem?

              I have a long torso, and some dresses make me look even more like Mrs. Potato Head. Not this one. The empire waist is perfect. This is a very easy dress to wear. Great, comfortable fabric. It launders like a breeze. If you are allergic to ironing, this is your dress.

                Good dress. I feel a little less "hip" when I wear it compared to some of my other Boden purchases. I think the length is more for an older person, it hits below my knee (5'8" size 6) which isn't the most flattering without heals. The material is also thicker than I was expecting so I tend to avoid this dress in the summer and wear it more in the fall. Still a great piece.

                      This dress is lovely. I am a size 6L, and I maybe would not have needed to order a tall size; however, I do love the fit of this dress. I am 5'11" and 145 lbs. The dress will look great with a cardigan in the fall.
