Seen this but wondered if it would actually make me look horribly rotund....? Know Boden tends to be cut quite flattering but don't want to regret buying it, but also want some new post baby clothes that fit! Any experience of trying similar styles....?

The link came up with no pic available on my puter I'm afraid.

Ditto - I have several of this season's tunics and am a (large!) hourglass, but alas don't know which one you mean.

Bugger! Am typing on the iPad and not sure how to make the link work! It's the Boden "latte" knitted dress, if that helps. Well try again re the link!

Sorry can't find one called 'latte' in current Boden site.

I think this is the one? Sorry I can't help, don't know Boden well but am interested in the answer

Have found it on their site under clearance - one of their spring things now sold out.
I did try it and sent it back cos it was very unflattering - perhaps because of all the spots. As said I m large but nott apple but I do recall seeing another largish woman in the supermarket wearing it and it made her look larger too so was glad I'd returned it.

But if you are a small size apple it might be OK . you could look at the reviews on the site.

Johnnycake! Yes that's the one!
Polyhymnia that's interesting what is say re the unflattering shape? Bugger! I am, I suppose, a medium apple shape if that makes sense. I can hide if I want to, and weAr spanxs etc, but can't be arsed and would rather dress for comfort. I wonder if, due to the unflattering style, that is why there are a few n EBay. Hmmm. Still like it though...

If you like it prob worth trying. Both I and the woman I saw in it have really big busts and you probably don't so it may look fine. Can't find the reviews now but seem to remember some/ many reviewers liked it.

Yes, my bust is pretty average (36b) it's just my middle which is a bit on the round side so maybe it is worth a go. I couldn't find reviews of it either!
