I was just about to buy a load, so thanks!

smile that I didn't place my order last night.

Many thanks for that - has saved me some money too. I wonder if they'll have much left for their sale with all these flash promotions, but still.

BranchingOut Tue 07-Jun-11 14:34:00

Yay, thank-you! Saved £140 ish - buying a load of stuff to try so hence the big order.

have just ordered a couple of tops for summer - thanks very much KATY1KATY. I LOVE saving money!

princessdave Tue 07-Jun-11 16:02:11

Katy - I think you are right, there is a lot left in each category in a wide range of sizes. Last spring/summer lots of things were out of stock all season. With dresses last week & tops this week I wouldn't be surprised to see something like knitwear on offer next week... smile

Thanks Katy - they also have selected menswear with discount and you can add the ln9q for more.

It is very nice though - I have two and am also mad about stripes.

What is the sizing like on that breton tunic? I hadn't noticed it and had put two of the breton tops in my basket. Oh what to do? What to do? As I am dotty...about...stripes grin

I ordered the navy breton tunic - a friend has it and says it came up large so depending on how you like them to fit consider sizing down. It looked lovely IRL. I too have way too many stripes smile

thanks katy.

i sent the breton tunic back, it was very shapeless even though I'd already sized down. can't make LN9Q work, it keeps offering me £25 off £120 not 15%.

thank you. works now, but doesn't stay unless I open it in a new window. odd. must be cookies.

Rassy Wed 08-Jun-11 14:32:12

Thank you! Yet another unplanned Boden purchase wink

dottyaboutstripes Wed 08-Jun-11 14:37:12

Well I ordered 2 Breton tunics and 2 Breton tops to see what they are like. DH came in and said "OH that's cheap" before wandering away again grin He's such an enabler

Rassy Wed 08-Jun-11 14:39:46

I ordered the Breton tunic as well!

snailsontour Wed 08-Jun-11 18:10:16

I received this Breton tunic last week, I went for the navy and the sea green, but I was unsure of the sizing (what's with boden sizing anyway ???), so I ordered both colours in a 10 and a 12.

The navy I kept in a 10, and the seagreen I kept the 12. Crazy!!!

I now want the grey, but it's so annoying to have to order two sizes again as I've no idea which will fit best!

BranchingOut Fri 10-Jun-11 09:18:09

Received my order, and as usual a few successes and a few disappointments!

Long sleeved essential scoop neck - great, have now bought several
v neck jersey top with ruched bits around bust - fab, but going back to change colour and get another one too (can't remember the boden name for this one)

silk top with ruffles on the front - nothing special and the ruffles already looked bizarre from being in the packaging. Can see it will be a nightmare to iron. going back.

beaded sleeveless jersey top - enormous and nothing special - going back

artisan top - a bit shapeless and would be so much better with three-quarter sleeves - going back

printed tunic - I thought this was jersey but it was just viscose. Not too keen so going back.

trousers - too small so exchanging to try another size.

I think the key to Boden is to be prepared to try a lot on, as the colour and fit seems quite variable. THen when you find something great, buy several quickly!

Branching out - I also took delivery of the l/s essential scoop neck yesterday. Went for the blue/white stripe as already have the pink & green stripes in the s/s version and they've worn/washed really well so far.

Really pleased with the navy stripy tunic, ordered my usual size 8 and am wearing it today. Am 27 wks + 5 but it looks nice with leggings over my bump and is 100% cotton rather than yucky scratchy polyester. I've avoided maternity clothes in the main so far aside from some New Look shorts & a H&M tunic/dress. I can wear the tunic for a few weeks until bump becomes too big then wear it post birth, not bad for £24 smile (20% off sale + 20% off code found on Mumsnet, so thanks to whoever supplied that!)

ABitBatty Fri 10-Jun-11 09:35:21

Thanks! I've had my eye on the breton top for a while, didn't want to pay £25. Got it for £17 today smile

moragbellingham Fri 10-Jun-11 10:12:48

princessdave shameless ask here - do you still have the 20% off code?
I have a 15% one but I'm going to get a few bits and would prefer to pay lesssmile

dottyaboutstripes Fri 10-Jun-11 10:39:41

The 20% code was one which came from a Boden party apparently as wasn't for general use, so it was withdrawn
