The Boden dresses arrived. I typically wear a 12P in dresses, but 10P is
the largest petite size they carry, so I ordered all of them in 10P. They were all just a bit too small. Too bad Boden doesn't  go up to a 12P.  

the 1st and 2nd finds are dresses in woven fabric with no stretch (linen notch and Leila shirt) and were too tight through the torso and waist. The 3rd and 4th are knits with a bit

of stretch (casual jersey and emory which I got in the blue shown ), and were just a touch too tight although more about not being flattering than being strictly “too tight”.

The 5th is Nicole, which fits best of the bunch (photos shown) but is still just a little too tight. It's also a bit more casual and much longer than I had in mind.    

As Angie and others have said, the quality is fabulous on all of them, with a very nice fabric “hand”, lined bodices, very nice prints etc. I’m glad I’ve now seen Boden first hand. These are all going back but I’ll keep looking and will consider other items from Boden. The red print dress hunt continues. NEXT.
