Here was the thread that got me started with Boden's sizing, and how it might have changed:

Long story short - it hasn't.

Boden sizing usually does one of three things on my body when I order the smallest REGULAR size:

  • Fits perfectly in a fluid or fluidly-tailored way. NOTE THE WAY I AM DESCRIBING THE FIT. I am NOT describing a tailored fit, and absolutely not describing a body con fit. (I tend to like my tailored items on the gently fluid side of tailored because I think it looks more luxurious).
  • Can be altered to fit perfectly.
  • I need exactly one size down, but it's not available.

This was my EXACT experience with the large Boden order I just received. Quality is GORGEOUS and so are the colours and silhouettes. The details with the exact Finds:

1. Horsel Jacket: A lovely FLUID fit with a very structured shoulder, shoulder pouff, and neckline. Lots of room on the arms and torso. More roomy and trapeze on me than on the model. I'm going to adjust the position of the buttons for a better fit. Excellent with all sorts of layers underneath. Incredible buttons. KEEPING.

2. Ellie Sweater: Could not fit more perfectly. A little roomier on me than on the model. STUNNING. KEEPING.

3. Cashmere Crews: They are a PERFECT fluid fit on me. But scratchy, so both are going back. (I am VERY sensitive to scratchy wool).

4.Murial Sweater: Fit is perfectly fluid, JUST like how you see it on the model (see pics). Very good structure on the neckline, shoulders, cuffs and welt. I do not think it runs big if you want it to fit LIKE THE MODEL. KEEPING.

5. Eden Dress: Exactly a size too big.

6. Farleigh Coat: Tried the 2P - sleeves are too short and the pockets are in the wrong position (too high). At 5 ft 6, petites don't work in the length - but at least I tried. Next!

7. Broadgate Crossbody: SUPER CUTE. Lovely colour. Lots of room. But I'd rather save for my next Furla.

8. Logan Sweater: Exactly a size too big.

Hope this was helpful.
