Not Quite Right

      Beautiful, rich color, well-made, but the fit just wasn't right. The sleeves are too loose, and the whole thing just hangs on me. I am a very slim size 0 - but the Holborn dress fit perfectly. So hard to accurately figure out what will fit.

      I wanted to love this dress but it did not work on me. The red color I purchased it in is gorgeous but unfortunately the fit is off. It made my waist look thick and I looked heavier and frumpy, which is definitely not a flattering look! It's going back...

            Sadly, this dress just didn't work for me. The upper part of the dress was just way too large, and I wanted the sleeves to be a little longer. Unfortunately, I will be returning.

              For anyone who appreciates a good wool dress in her winter wardrobe, you will fall in love with this dress. It's a perfect, true-to-size fit (I'm a 12 in a dress), falls beautifully to the knee (I'm 5'1), and looks great with boots or pumps. It's perfect for a professional look at work or works just as nicely for a night out or special occasion. Boden, please don't stop offering real wool clothing. Getting hard to find. I LOVE BODEN!!!!

              Flattering fit and flare fit. Snug in the bust and arms but gives slightly after wear - I am larger busted 36DD. Wool materials is not the most comfortable, a bit on the itchy side. I was able to wear my true size.

                  It was both too big and too small. At 5'5" and 145 pounds, the 12 in this dress was tight across the bust but too long-waisted -- lots of extra room in the shoulders, too. A smaller or larger size wouldn't fit either problem, so it had to go back. I usually have good luck with Boden dresses -- that plus all the good reviews make me think this cut was just not for me. Nice fabric and lining, so I was disappointed that we didn't click.

                        This is a great dress for when you want to look a little dressier at work, whether it's for a meeting or an after work event. Yes, the sleeve length is a little funny, but the dress is slim enough to work well under a cardigan or a jacket on colder days. I was worried about the waist seam, as Boden dresses often hit me too high on the waist, but it actually works well as it's fitted but not too close to the body with a swingy skirt. The red is a fantastic color. I get compliments every time I wear this dress.

                        I bought this dress for church and love it! I am 5'10" and 140lbs. I purchased the size 6 tall and it hits my knee tops. The elbow length sleeves are flattering on my old lady arms and the swirly skirt is fun and flirty. I feel stylish and modest! Thanks Boden!
