Soft and cute, but didn't work out

    I got the dog print on green background. It was cute, and the fabric felt soft, but I didn't like the fit. The fabric seemed a little stiff and didn't drape as nicely as I'd like. There was something about the cut that I didn't find flattering. It might work better for straighter body types.

          I would have loved the squirrel shirt but the chest would be too small. A size 10 which is supposed to fit up to a 39" chest will definitely gap.

            In love with this shirt. So happy to finally find a button down that is made for a woman's shape. I seldom wear this type of shirt because I'm busty and I either have to deal with a shirt that fits at the waist but pulls across the chest and gaping buttons, or buy them to fit the bust and it is oversized everywhere else. Not so with this shirt. It is actually made to fit women, with wonderfully placed darts and tailoring so that it fits everywhere perfectly. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because it wasn't available in long, and while it fit through the torso it was a little short for my arms, had a long been available I would've gotten that and it would be hands down the best shirt I've ever owned.

              Great shirt. Trim fit and nice clear blue color. It's a bonus that, according to the recent Fashion Weeks in NY and abroad, ginghams are "in" for Spring 2015 ;)

              This shirt is well made and comfortable. Definitely order a size up, because this fabric doesn't stretch. If you do that, you won't experience any gapping at the bust.

              I was pleased with this shirt when I opened the package. I picked the pattern with the squirrels on it. It is a very different and cute design. I ordered my normal size 6 and the fit was too tight so I had to return it. Disappointed.

                I purchased this top in the London print and the blue and white gingham. I have never been able to wear button-up shirts before because I am relatively busty (34C or 34D) and petite (5'3"). In the past, button-up shirts always overwhelmed me with too much fabric, or made me look to chesty. I am usually a size 2 or 4 in dresses and tops, but ordered this blouse in a size 6P. It fit perfectly. No gapping between buttons over the bust! The London print is rather unusual looking; I wouldn't call it "pretty," but it's fun for the London lovers out there. The blue gingham will be serviceable for years to come.

                  very adorable design. I got the Raddish Soldiers to have a basic shirt with a great design - and I couldn't be happier.

                    I love the Jack Russell print - I used to own one and it is great to remember her while wearing the shirt. The contrasting fabric is so fun. I am getting so many comments on the Boden things I have recently purchased - they are made of fabrics that you don't see over here in the States. I am becoming addicted to Boden clothes!

                      I never have liked wearing collared shirts. They usually make me feel I'm wearing baggy ill fit clothes or a man's shirt. But finally i have found a collared shirt that makes me look great and feminine and still comfortable for all day at work! I wish they made more classic work colors (I find the prints a little cutesy). I didn't get to buy a white one because they sold out but I hope they come back soon. Anyway, the fit is perfect and this shirt is just wonderful. I can wear it with a skirt, pants, under a sweater (as long as it's not 3/4 sleeve) and it looks immaculate.

                      I just loved the theme of the shirt . The colour was ok but the arms were a bit short and a bit tight across the back of the shoulders. I am 5'7 and 132 lbs. I bought the size 8 US. For the most part the shirt fit ok. I wore it to my office and received several complements.
