Anyone got one...? Am round round the middle and self conscious about it but wondered if this would flatter or make me look pregnant?!

Haven't tried this one, but as a fellow apple I steer clear of drapey jersey dresses from Boden as they tend to cling to my tum. I get on better with more structured fabrics: their ponte dresses or lined cotton shifts? Free returns at moment though so you could always try? (Please report back if you do).

Oh good grief! A boden dress that is not made of Viscose!!!! (Faints).

I guess it depends how 'appley' you are, and how busty. It does have stretch to it. Well, if you like it, get it, you can always return it. I wouldn't go for the very busy print though - even though it might look like it will disguise the tum I think it will actually point it out more.

Would be interested how it fits as I am an apple too but most of the Boden dresses I likehave been made with that vile viscose stuff.

I got this dress (the blue floral) on Friday and I love it!
I'm an apple shape (size 14) and carry most of my weight on my tummy. There is a little bit of gathering over the tummy area, but not enough to make it look like a maternity dress.

Try it. You can always send it back.

Hope you like it. I have a total of 3 now -really nice for casual summer wear. And cool when it's hot.

Does seem to suit me, but I'm a tall, large hourglass.

PS if you do like it they are doing some more prints in their high summer range.
