        For reference I ordered size 6 and I am 5'5" 129-131 lbs, 33.5/28.5/37.5 with narrow shoulders. The fit is great and I may have been ok with a 4 (but I wanted a little more wiggle room). The collar and the sleeves really make this a special piece. I wear it to work and church. I ordered the ivory confetti based on other reviewers comments and it did not disappoint. Can wear with so many different colors. I will buy more.

          Very fun blouse. Love the pattern and fit. Very classic design. Ordered the pink (which is great) but, decided I liked the yellow color better.

            This top just feels good... The fabric drapes perfectly, and skims the skin in a way that doesn't feel restrictive, but you know it gives you a bit of shape. It is lightweight enough for me to wear under a cardigan or jacket (difficult sometimes as I run hot), and yet heavy enough to stand alone as a polished top. The length and finished hem also allow versatility as far as tucking in or wearing untucked. Today I wore it alone, untucked with black trousers and received several compliments. I would be overstating to call it a Holy Grail shirt, but it's close. The only negative is that I occasionally have to adjust the sleeves; they ride up a bit when I sit and type. Highly recommend.

                This top is incredibly cute, incredibly easy and always gets compliments. I purchased a size 8 in Ivory Confetti and would wear it over and over if I could. I usually wear size 6-8 in US brand tops but after reading the published measurements decided on the 8 with Boden and it was perfect. The fabric is high quality, the colors are just as shown, the length is just right for tucking in without extra bulk and the neck line was fun but modest, perfect for work. Highly recommended. If you ever have questions about Boden sizes, I have found that the garment measurement tables are very accurate and will help you out tremendously in making your sizing choices.

                I love this top in the navy, it's very classy looking. I initially got it in the 6, but it was too wide in the waist area and unflattering, so I went for the 4. Still loose in the waist, but that's the design; it's not a fitted blouse. However, it's very tight through the shoulder area. It fit fine when I tried it on (and stood stock still in front of the mirror), but once I wore it and had to actually do stuff in it (put on my boots, put my arms out to drive my car), it is really tight in the shoulders. I often have this problem with Boden tops (sometimes the ravello too). I'm still addicted to them, but this is a request to the designers that they provide a bit more "give" in through the shoulder area. I don't have broad shoulders, so I imagine I'm not the only one who struggles with this.

                    This is the second Bella top I've ordered. I like the fit very much. I have the Navy and got the yellow. However, the yellow color does not go with the green Heritage Skirt....wrong color. I think I will be sending it back as I don't need another blouse this color. I thought it was more golden than it is...too much green in the yellow.

                      This is such a great top that goes with everything - jeans, skirts, etc. The greatest thing about it is that it's fairly wrinkle resistant and a heavy enough weight material that it holds up well. A good staple!
