I love the dress and I love all the colours. The reviewers seem to love it, provided you're not curvy and I'm not, but:

-It's viscose with a polyester lining, so it will be like wearing a plastic bag
-It's dry clean only
-It's £129 shock Did I mention viscose and polyester!
-It's Boden
-It's mostly out of stock anyway

There must be something similar, but better somewhere. has anybody seen it?

Hmmm, this is a similar sort of shape with the pleating - but much more formal in style. I've just returned it (with sadness - lovely heavy quality dress, but not flattering on my giant lactating breasts, unfortunately sad). Not the same sort of 'feel' as the Boden one but very nice and similar shape?

I like that one too, but it's polyester and dry clean only again.

Since when did polyester dresses cost £100+ and need dry cleaning ? Polyester makes you me smell.

Or this viscose offering from Mango - at least you can wash it - much more casual though Mango dress

I like the mango one best, but unless the model:s very tall indeed it's a bit short
