I really liked the dress! However, I put it on, and it was like a trashbag it was so huge! I sent it in to exchange for a smaller size - I'm REALLY hoping it fits this time!!

Great dress but not for my body type

This dress is great for someone who has perfect dimensions. I am a bit of a pear shape but not too much, yet this dress was completely loose in the chest area yet very tight in the hips. Also the fabric is very thin. Did not expect it to be so thin. Still I would kept it if it looked better on me. The design is stunning!

Not for me

This dress is very nice in person. It's a great color and material. Unfortunately though, it's made for someone with a much larger chest (I'm pretty average). This is the first time I've had this problem with a dress from Boden. I thought about having it taken in but decided for the price I'd send it back.

Classic...but perhaps matronly

    I loved this dress in the pictures but when I received it I realized I had ordered a size to large. I have an hourglass figure with a little bit more "hip" than "bust" I now realize that Boden dresses are more forgiving of my hips than other brands now and will not order up to accommodate. That said, after receiving the dress I decided not to exchange for a smaller size as the my husband commented the dress seemed a little matronly. But beautifully made and if you were in need of a really basic "with a slight twist" work wear staple - this would be the dress.

        I ordered both the black & the navy. The black with gray piping is very classic. The navy has more of a 1960's vibe, as it's a dot pattern close up. I'm a size 12, 5'4" and the dresses in regular length hit me right at the knee. Perfect for work! Love love love!

          This is great for work, weddings, etc. Great quality and we'll made. It could be a little more fitted, but not everything needs to be skin tight. Very classy look.

            I love the styling, but my normal size is a little wide around the middle and it wouldn't be very easy to tailor. I'm going to try with a smaller size.

                  The dress fit great, and I absolutely loved the fabric. However, what looked great on the model in terms of the dark striping looking hideous on me. Sort of cut me in half around the waist and just looked weird overall. I even waited to return it because I liked the fabric so much, but every time I put it back on, it just looked bad. I sent it back.

                  The dress is nice, the fabric looks good, but it didn't work for me. The waist was way too loose, it was not form fitting at all.
