Stiff buttons

  • Bad Design

Best Uses

  • Casual Wear

I hate to put bad design, because overall the shirt is well-made and a nice cut. However, the strip of buttons is quite inflexible and because of where it lays it tends to buckle weird. Of course, if you have a small chest this might not be an issue. I had hoped it might ease up after washing, but no. Oh well, I love the color and it's otherwise super comfy, so I'm keeping it. A well-placed necklace can do the trick in hiding this one little flaw.

Poor quality cotton

Best Uses

Took straight out of package, put it on, loved style, within 20 minutes had a hole in it near waist line. Going back. I am so aggravated because this is the 5th top I have received from Boden that developed little tiny holes. But usually its after worn a few times. Truly within 20 minutes, this top had a hole in it. I wish Boden would correct this problem . Maybe by finding a better source for cotton.

Fabric Too Thin

Best Uses

So glad that the Henley is back, but I'm very disappointed in the thinness of the material. I would hesitate to wear it anywhere but grocery shopping, around the house, or as a pj top. I don't want to have to layer my top over a tank or cami. Boden, please bring back a Henley as soft as this one, but of substantial enough weight that it looks like it's worth the price. This one is not.

      I am a slim build and a 34AA and this top is too low cut for me, it didn't look good. The cotton was soft, I ordered the pastel pink which was a lovely color but the fabric was thin. Sadly this went back.

        The green is a lovely color. Fit is great, as I like to size up for a comfortable shirt.

        • Wear To Work

        I ordered the green Henley to dress up with nice pants to wear to work. The color and cotton is beautiful and comfortable. I love all the vibrant colors to choose from. The shirt was the right size but too low cut thought and showed my bra and cleavage. I am going to return it. I am 5 foot 7, 34b, mid 30s. Boden, please make a stylish Henley like this one but with a modest neckline. It is so frustrating how showing cleavage in work and casual settings is all the rage now which is so unprofessional. So hard to find an attractive modest Henley made with beautiful colors! Back to the search...

            I ordered this in light bluebell in my usual size, and having several of these tops in the short sleeve version, I was looking forward to getting this top. I like it, but I am removing one star each for the thin material and tight sleeves.

            Best Uses

            • Casual Wear

            This henley is nice because it is a little different than other Boden tees. It is great for layering under a button down top and wearing around the house. It also pairs well with the cute Boden pyjama bottoms. The only note I would have for anyone who wants to buy this top is that the fabric is quite thin, but this can be easily fixed by layering a tank top under it.
