    I love these tops so much that I accidentally ordered them twice. I ordered my normal size twelve and these fit perfect. They taper in slightly but are still loose enough to de-emphasize a belly and to keep the body cool on a hot day. It looks best with a fitted bottom. I've worn mine untucked with a straight linen skirt, linen or cotton shorts, and tucked in with the matching a-line skirt in the tropical print. Each time I have received lots of compliments. These tops made dressing on the scorching hot days here easy, and I still felt cute.

      Love it love it love it. I ordered the 18 and it is loose but very comfortable in my current state -- pre-swim-season, even though it is mid-August. Because I still hope the Top of Lake Michigan will warm up for lap swimming, I'm going to order the 16 also. I didn't realize there is a side zip in the vest meant for a closer, more flattering fit. But I have days when the 18 will be just the ticket. I wore it this week with the matching skirt for a doctor's appointment and shopping. I wore it to lunch today with grey cargo jeans and my Boden Aqua/Freshwater/Seabreeze Carnaby Cardigan and Iron Birkenstocks. The colors are vintage wonderful and the print is perfect for shoreside villages and towns -- and for when I wish that's where I was.

        Like this with white shorts for day, or even jeans and a cardi for work. It's light and gauzy, nice summer top. The pleats do fit a little weird on me, but not awkward enough that I wouldn't wear it. It's light and comfy, great throw on for vacation.

          The word "Vest" and no model photos led me to expect something different. Then I realized in UK "vest" is used for blouse, too. As a blouse the neckline is too low for me as a petite, and the front has too much space. I liked everything else but I won't keep it.

            If you like loose-fitting blouses, this top is for you. It seems to be true to size around the arms, neck and chest. However, the front pleats really add a lot of extra material in front which makes the top have no shape. I purchased both prints which I feel have nice, rich, vibrant colors. I decided to keep them both and will just tuck them in to give it a more fitted look. This will be a comfortable top to wear on those hot, steamy summer days.

              I love the sunflower print on this top! The color is a little different (more mustardy than the online photo) but still a very pretty color. The shape is loose and the fact that it's cotton makes it a good top for summer in Florida.

                I have had great luck with Boden tops, but this was really just okay. Unfortunately the style didn't do much for me so I had to send it back. Also, the color is much more of a mustard which isn't a great color on me, but may look nice on someone else.

                Not fitted enough - too baggy

                I bought this top because I loved the cute floral print. Unfortunately, I didnt like much else about it when I got it. The sizing was much larger than other Boden tops I own. The arm holes were so large you could see my bra if I lifted my arm. The way the fabric drapes over your chest it looks like a curtain hanging - which might be a good thing if you have a stomach you want to hide. On me it made me look like I had a huge middle when it was all empty space beneath my bust. Definitely not what I want in a shirt, to look bulkier. The shaping and fittedness need to be improved. More care could've been taken when sewing the gathers/tucks in front to make the print look more even. It looks awkward in real life vs the online picture. Finally, I think it would be better as a jersey knit; same color and print but stretchy knit fabric.

                  Nice mustardy color that works well with black, ivory or denim.

                  Very comfortable and flattering. Hides my mummy-tummy but not frumpy as the print is stylish.
