Boden - 20% off tunics & tops plus extra 15% on top!
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...
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 (20% off sale + 20% off code found on Mumsnet, so thanks to whoever supplied that!)
