On the Boden website, there is a 'read all reviews' bit in blue you can click on, next to the star rating.

Also do you know there is a code to get £10 of £30 and free p&p? can be used as many times as you like, I believe.

I buy Boden for myself (not my 2 DSs! lol as they put holes in everything, cover it in mud etc). Sometimes it's hard to tell whether an item is the very thing for you unless you actually see the things yourself and the colours/ quality of the fabric.

I don't hesitate to return items if they don't meet my expectations (I always wait for a "free postage/ free returns" offer before I order, mind you!)

Not sure where you are, but I have bought nice tights for friends' children at M&Co in the past.

I've seen lots of nice girls tights. Next have some lovely girls tights that aren't all pink and flowers. So do M&S. I have also got some lovely star tights for a friends dd in Asda.

Whats the £10 off code please?

Boden clothes are generally good quality (they have a 3 mnth no quibble return policy if you are unhappy with anything).

I personally wouldn't buy tights from them...I would buy the nice dresses from them and then go to tesco for the tights..prob £2 a pair rather than £9!! Im the same with trousers and jeans (their basics are no better than matalan or next)

I always buy my kids a few of my favourite items from each season just because I like them so much. Generally I buy for my eldest..then my youngest gets them the following year and then they go on ebay if in good enough condition. So don't work out that expensive for us!

yeah, one thing to note is that they seem to sell really well second hand on ebay, i bought some once, i didn't particularly love them but recouped a fair bit of money on ebay when they were outgrown.

I I get plain coloured cable-knit tights from Gap - after extensive research they are the ones that best survive the washer/dryer without bobbling. Only come in cream and navy though.

Stripey, courtesy of another MNer (Nickname, I think it was) the Boden code for £10 off £30 & free p&p is A993.

Why is this in AIBU?

skihorse Wed 12-Aug-09 11:05:54

YANBU - but you do need to get a life! hmm Seriously - either you like the clothes or you don't. Do you want us to review your Tesco trolley too?

tinkistheresidentshopper Wed 12-Aug-09 12:12:59

no need for that skihorse i was just curious 2 see what people think

cheers ladies for helpful comments. i am going to use that code and order bits next week

MrsBadger Wed 12-Aug-09 12:20:50

(NB in future try posting in Products, or even Style and Beauty - AIBU is for, shall we say, a different use?)

I have bought their children's tights in the sale - they are gorgeous - all soft and thick and totally different than the stuff you get in Tesco. Saying that, I wouldn't pay full price for them. £18 is crazy money.

My kids live and sleep in boden and am very impressed with quality. I quite often buy second hand on ebay because the stuff does last really well.

VinegarTits Wed 12-Aug-09 12:27:18

YABU Boden is shite

skihorse Wed 12-Aug-09 12:48:49

Seriously - if you don't have anything better to worry about than the opinions of women you've never met on clothes for your children then perhaps you need to get a hobby. I do mean this in the nicest possible sense!

Who gives a toss what ANY of us think?

tinkistheresidentshopper Wed 12-Aug-09 14:15:09

right end of this thread.

Tamarto Wed 12-Aug-09 15:17:54

YABU to think you can decide when a thread ends.

tinkistheresidentshopper Wed 12-Aug-09 17:19:06

shut up

Tink you can't tell people when to stop posting, espcially not in AIBU! wink

fircone Wed 12-Aug-09 17:36:05

This is exactly the sort of post which someone puts in AIBU so it gets seen, even when it is UNREASONABLE to put it there.

This should be booted into Style & Beauty asap.
