Boden virgin

I'm about to take the plunge and make my first Boden order.... What's the sizing like? Should I order my regular size or bigger... Smaller...?

Are the trousers cut for humans or drainpipes?

Anything else I should know?

Just make sure that you use a code for free delivery/returns, and try a few things out. It took me a while to get the hang of Boden sizing, it was all down to trial and error. Their sizing can vary from item to item - it is a good thing to read the reviews. I tend not to order something which says it has funny sizing unless it is really reduced.

Thanks call

I've just looked at a few things online that I loved in the catalogue and they are completely different colours confused

Haven't seen the latest catalogue, but the photography has been hit and miss in the last couple IMO. Too many shots in dark dingy interiors!

I don't really buy off the model shots. You can set the website to show what things look like flat when you're browsing - I tend to do that, and if I like something then look in more detail.

I like Boden, even if it is a bit of a yummy mummy cliche - mostly because shopping is hell with a toddler, and I loathe changing rooms - I feel much more relaxed trying stuff on at my own pace at home, and being able to see how things co-ordinate with stuff I already have. I've got used to Boden, and can pretty accurately pick stuff to suit me and fit. Most of this is habit, I'm sure I could do this with another site if I could be arsed.
