Hi there ,
I have been looking at the boden rainy day mac but wondered if anyone give me some advice on which size to go for . I have never ordered anything from boden before and can't afford to order two sizes and return one wink

I am 5'4, top half a size ten and a bottom size 12 , small norks , sometimes I do have trouble with sleeves being too long .

So do I go for the 10 the 12 regular or the new petite ?!

10. Haven't tried petite but the 10 is quite roomy imo.

I only have the older style one though.

According to a thread the other day the new one is NOT waterproof sadly.

Thanks rooners

I have been looking at the sea salt jolly too but decided on the boden one because I liked to colour and the fleece lining .
I have seen a few comments about it not being waterproof but its more of an autumn/spring jacket that I'm looking for and shower proof should be ok !
I could always get dh to treat it with our waterproofing tent stuff grin

I think they are about true to size, mine is a 12 and so am I!

Higgle , I would be a dress size ten but separates ten top half and twelve bottom that's why thought I should check with people that have one . Are you a 12 all over? wink I'm worried about a ten being tight across my backside !
