I am a similar shape to OP, 6ft and size 12 top 14bottom, and I LOVE the boden cable knitted dress, in non scratchy wool. Size 12R is knee length for me. It is fitted at the top and then flares out. Might become my winter staple dress if it washes o.k. (sorry no links as on i pad) . It is my first Boden purchase ever.
Normally I have success with white company dresses, but not seen one ths year.
Hopefully I find that a lot with dresses. I have small less firm since pregnancy and BF boobs and a bit of a wobbly bottom and thighs, but I do have a waist which I work to maintain so I'd love to find some dresses which go in at the middle instead of all these sack-like garments. Frustrating, isn't it?
Chandon, thanks so much for the tip. Does it drape nicely?
Sorry, I probably didn't mean drape so much as hang. I've found sometimes with wool that it sticks out unflatteringly rather than hangs, but it sounds like that's not the case with this dress. I'm going to read all the reviews on the Boden site now.
I ordered the slouchy one in poppy. im normally a 10/12 so i ordered a small and medium to compare sizes. I thought the slouch one was nice cos of the ribbed hem to shape it in at bottom. Cant wait for them to arrive, I've got high hopes!
