I ordered these over the Memorial Day sale, and have finally been able to take some pictures. For those of you who are interested in sizing, the most common size in my closet is US6, but there's a range from US2 (some tops, because I'm small busted) to US8 (some bottoms.) Per Boden size charts, I'm between a US2 and US4 for bust and a US8 for waist and hips, so I use the actual garment measurements and reviews to decide on sizing. Given how Boden fits, with narrow cuts through the shoulders, I'm not necessarily a great candidate for their clothes, but I really like the fabrics for the price point.

Sophia Shirt Dress- US6/UK10- This fit perfectly in the shoulders and waist, but was a bit too puffy under the bust. Cute print, but it's not quite me, so it's going back. I tried it on with a belt from my closet because I wasn't in love with the grosgrain one that came with it. For me this one ended up being in the category of something that I liked the idea of, but not actually to wear it.

Marina Jersey Dress- US8/UK12- I thought I'd try this because the reviews were good. Lovely, lightweight fabric, but the cut seemed to emphasize my wider shoulders and smaller bust, rather than balancing the two. So, it's also going back.

Linen Notch Neck Dress- US6/US10- Completely agree with Suz that the fabric of this one is amazing. It's also a bit too large in the bust and armholes, but not as obvious, since the fabric drapes, and is less crisp than the Sophia. I might stalk this one in this one in the blue/navy colorway, because the fabric is so wonderful, though this colorway was just a tad too bright for me. Curious what others think- is the bust too gaping? Should I not give it a second change in a different color?

Tie Waist Shirt Dress- US6/UK10- This is a top pick, and I love it! I'm almost ready to cut the tags. The straighter cut worked well for me, with my shoulders filling out the top. I'm wearing it with the Tabitha Shoulder bag, and the Fiona slingbacks from Re-Soul. (Thanks, annagybe, for mentioning re-soul!) Keeping both of those; I could not believe what a perfect match the yellows are.

Phoebe- US8/UK12- bonus WIW from last week. This was an earlier purchase. It fit really well out of the bag, but the fabric relaxed significantly after the first time I washed it, and did my usual hang to dry. It was easily two inches longer, and loose in the shoulders and bust. I've since dried it partially, and then finally, dried it fully, on high, to get it back to the size it was when shipped. If I bought this again, I'd probably try a size smaller, since I don't like drying my clothes in the dryer. For all of you who are thinking of getting the bee print, do it!! Super fun! Happiness factor is the necklace I'm wearing- my older son's 2nd grade teacher made it, as a "Thank you" for being the room parent. The design is a dragonfly, the school symbol.
