Jersey dress

(14 Posts)

I hope you knowledgeable S&B types can help me please smile

I am looking for a flattering, fairly fitted jersey dress, preferably with a subtle print. I like the Boden fixed wrap dress but it's too low cut at the front and I don't want to wear a cami.

I am a size 12, top heavy so I want it flattering on the boobs without showing my bra.

Any suggestions please?

Oh and not too long otherwise it looks frumpy on me. Above the knee.

I have the Boden Harper Dress and Boden Cowl Neck dress both of which look fine with my G cups and do not need camis underneath.

Thanks, I did actually look at the Harper dress, it looks lovely, I just wasn't sure about the prints.

The other one looks nice too, I just wanted something with sleeves. Might be worth a try though.

I always wear plain coloured cardigans with print dresses to work so although the lack of sleeves on the cowl neck is quite annoying, it is that double layer jersey material that is quite warm anyway, and the print is neutralised by the block colour of the cardi. The print of the Harper dress is louder, but the bright blue one looks good on me and with a black cardi it is not to overwhelming!
My favourite work dress is a Phase 8 one from a few years ago. It is this sort of shape with the slash neck and side rushing but is navy with an all over diagonal white thin pinstripe which is extremely flattering on all my curves!

I am interested in jersey dresses as well particularly those with sleeves. I do like the Harper Dress. Are there any discounts for Boden going at the moment?

Its more of a tunic but if your short like me fits as a dress. I ordered two both the flowered prints and they are gorgeous and flattering. You have to like flowers though! Joules tunic dress

Have you looked at Baukjen?

Fat Face Geo tunic actually looks quite nice.

Tried the Boden harper dress, it went straight back, looked really frumpy on me.

Not keen on floral prints!
