Didn't fit my bustline

    I wanted so much to love this dress. The green color was gorgous and the fit and flare style was perfect. The neckline was modest and warm enough for a dress with this weight of fabric, but unfortunately the darts in the bust made the fabric stick out in two small points and I just felt that I'd be uncomfortable wearing it. I ordered the dress in a size 6L which fit perfect everywhere except the bust. I am 5'6", 130 lbs, and wear a 32D bra. I'm not sure if it was made strangely or I was just to small to fill out the top, but I was so sad to send this dress back.

    I'm pear shaped and this dress had way too much fabric around the hips, making me look larger than I am. The top of the dress fit great but the skirt was just too full. This would probably work on a really thin, tall person.

        This dress would have been a regular choice for me, especially for more formal evenings out, like a dinner with colleagues. Great about this dress is the fitted bodice. I ordered the 2R, and I'm 5'9 and 130, with a small frame, especially on top. I wouldn't want the chest area any larger (it's almost too big as is, and I'm not terribly small chested). If I could handle more room in the bust area, I'd size up, since I find the dress to be about 3 inches too short (and so to have a slightly childish look). Overall, a really nice dress, especially for someone shorter than me. Too bad there's no 2L!

          This dress is amazing, as is every dress I have gotten from Boden. The color is beautiful and it fits great, true to size. I actually just ordered it in black as well, since I liked it so much. Very well made, amazing attention to detail.

            This dress feels great. The fabric is very high quality. It fits true to size and is very comfortable. The purple color is pretty. The skirt may be a tad bit too poofy but the length is right. It is hard to find a winter dress that isn't too low cut or too short but this one delivers.

            The name of the dress says it all. I looked just like one of the early Olympic ice skaters, and not in a good way.

              I wasn't sure about ordering this dress. Of course, everything looks great on the models--not always on the rest of us. I worried about the comments made about how full the skirt was and that the waist was too high, but I went ahead with the green. The 6R turned out to be a perfect fit for my 5'5", 36C-27-36 frame. Bodice and sleeves are just right, waist is in a comfy place and the skirt falls beautifully, just skimming the top of my hips and flaring out in gentle folds. I did not find the skirt to be too voluminous at all. In fact, I think the dress makes me look rather slim! I love it--can be dressed up or down with different jewelry or a skinny belt, boots or heels.

                As a pear shaped women with heavy thighs and legs, it can be difficult to find true knee length dresses that fits at the waist and flares nicely. This dress does just that! The heavy weight of the material makes it perfect for fall and winter and it looks great with boots or a nice pair of pumps. Dress it up, make it casual, this dress is so versatile and I love the color! The 3/4 length sleeve is nice too. Can't go wrong with this one!

                  I was so excited when this came in the mail. The emerald color is amazing! The fabric is great! When I tried it on it felt good. Nicely fitted on top. But ... oh lord, my butt. It makes my butt look HUGE. Now, I ordered this dress because I have wide hips and it looked like it would be comfortable and flattering. And from the front it is! But from the side ... I just could not get over how big my butt looked. I was planning to wear this to work, so I had to send it back.
