      I have a closet full of Boden dresses, but this one was a huge disappointment. When I received it, the fabric was clearly cheap and the zipper was so badly attached it had already ripped the lining. When I managed to try on the dress, it was too big and too short in my usual size 2 (I'm 5'6, 120 lbs). Boden needs to start offering a size 2 long, as I've returned countless dresses for this same reason. Not everyone who fits a size two is short. They also need to watch their quality control. I've been a loyal customer and this dress was an insult.

      Cute dress, but way too tight in bust

        The fabric is very pretty, the skirt has a nice drape, and the waist is well defined. Unfortunately, there was not nearly enough room in the chest. Too bad because the fabric and the rest of the cut makes it very versatile: I could see myself wearing it to work on a Friday, to a nice summer dinner with my husband, or to church or a wedding. I'm rather top heavy (30F), so it would probably work very nicely on someone with a significantly smaller top.

              I used the sizing guide for this dress. It ended up being 2+ sizes too big for me. However, this was the case for all of the items in my order, so if you already know your size for other items from Boden, this should match that.

              I opted to send it back as an exchange rather than a return because it looks so beautiful. I'm hoping the better size will be a perfect fit for me.

                  I ordered this dress in the china blue dotty spot and paired with a yellow cropped cardigan found on this site. It is a stunning dress and I got a few compliments at church when I wore it. It made me feel comfortable, I'm a cotton all the way kind of girl and I love the way it swings. It has become one of my favorite dresses.

                  The dress is quite pretty, although the amount of material in the skirt will make someone with slim hips look much larger. It seemed to run large, especially in the waist. I've exchanged it for a smaller size-- Hopefully, that will solve the problem!

                    This dress is perfect for a summer garden party or wedding. It's probably a little fancy for day-to-day, but it is lovely.

                    This dress has great style for a summer day out. Lunch, shopping, garden party etc. My problem is that the bodice just feels a little big in places (chest) although it is a great fit for me in the shoulders.
                    Because there is absolutely no stretch to the fabric, it would have to be perfectly tailored to the body in orer to look perfect and be comfortable. Sadly it is going back. But I do recommend for someone a little more busty than me.
                    The color is great - but quite bright!

                      I was looking for a dress for one of my bridal showers, and initially, I thought I would wear an all white or ivory dress and play up my bridal side. However, I felt really cheesy and like I was trying too hard in every single all white/ivory dress I tried on. My fiance is really into polka dots, so when I came across this dress, it seemed like a perfect choice. It still gives the white/bridal feel but is a little sweeter and doesn't seem as corny. I might pair it with a belt, and I'm still trying to decide on shoes. Overall, super happy.

                          I thought this dress was beautiful and just what I needed for Easter. I am 5'7" and bought the 10 but it has a bit of room in the waist so I'll return it for the 8. The pleats on top are nice and the colors are beautiful (multi painterly)! The only thing I think would be an improvement is a band at the seam at the waist. I feel it needs a belt to hide that seam but I have no idea what style of belt would work. Overall, it's beautiful and you can tell that it is well made. Perhaps the other reviewers bought the other colors which didn't work for them. I think the flaring out of the skirt is nice, it makes my legs look smaller in comparison :)
