      I bought the pink dots with the ivory background and the fabric is so much prettier than I expected. Somehow the ivory softens the pink polka dots and prevents them from feeling clownish. The fit is classic without being baggy. I am a 32F and could normally wear an 8 except for my bust, so I need a ten.

        This is a great shirt where the details make the difference, but the fit and overall style are classic and dependable. Love the contrast collar and cuffs. Got the white/pink polka dot, and don't feel it's too sheer (fine for work with just regular undergarments, no cami required), but nice and lightweight. Washing instructions recommend line dry only - wish I could toss it in the dryer but don't want to risk shrinkage. Fit is perfect, true to size.

        Lousy White Shirt--The Search Continues

          Best Uses

            I'm searching for a great white button-down shirt, but this isn't it. The material is very thin--I can see my hand through the shirt. Since I live in south Texas, it's just too hot to wear a cami as an additional layer, so back this goes. Boden has great quality in most items, but they should really reconsider the thickness of the material in this shirt.

              I bought this in white and pink polka dots. I love the white; crisp and classic. I plan to wear it with shorts all summer. Polka dots just didn't do it for me. Color wasn't flattering on me and it seemed tighter across the chest which is weird because I would think it's the same pattern but it pulled where the white didn't. Anyway, I returned the polka dot but kept the white and love, love, love it!

              IMPOSSIBLE to iron

                Oh goodness. This shirt (I ordered white, 8 petite) is IMPOSSIBLE to iron. Strangely, ironing the shirt caused the material to pucker under the iron, and basically ironed weird ripples into the fabric. I gave up ironing it and washed it, thinking I would try to iron it again. It was even worse. The hem of the shirt flipped up after washing and remains kinked/pointing up. It is a nice-fitting shirt, and the details (buttons, placket) give it such a subtle little dash of style. But it is deadly impractical. I honestly would feel cruel if I took this to the dry cleaner and asked them to iron it for me. It will be going back. I'm curious whether all the colors are as bad as white, or if the white is specifically terrible. I can't believe that others can give good reviews on such a terrible shirt; makes me wonder if I got a lemon, or cut from a weird piece of the end of the bolt of fabric or something.

                  not what I expected - the pink dots were a little overwhelming. but it fit great but not what I need in my wardrobe at this time.

                    I am in love with polka dots and got this in blue. I love everything about it, the fit is great and the pattern is very eye catching.

                    My husband has a shirt from Boden and with this pink shirt, we make not an identical but a natural couple look. I love everything about this shirt except that this shirt runs a little bit small. Size 4 is my normal size from Boden but this shirt seems to be about half inch small on the shoulder. I wish the fabric was 5% mixed with elastic or 1/2 inch bigger.

                      I ordered this shirt in the pink gingham pattern and it is gorgeous, but too large. I used the size recommender, which said I should order 6 petite (this was my first time ordering for myself from Boden). Size 6 was a perfect fit in the other items I ordered, but not in this. I had about 3" of spare room all over, which made it look dowdy instead of fitted and tailored the way I like this kind of shirt to fit. Since I love the shirt and think it will fit much better once I have the right size, I will reorder in 4 petite.
