Maxi dress (sorry!) - do I keep?

It's from Boden but is A-line, I think, so comes in with an elasticated bit under boobs and flows from there. The bit under my boobs is a snug fit, and I am undecided. I am a shorty, just under 5ft 3, and I will probably be wearing it with flat shoes rather than heels.

I personally think it's lovely on you.

Does also explain why I never buy anything in Boden as I'm 5ft 8 and it's all too fecking short! grin

It's in petite, not regular Space, so you may be ok!

They do a long in quite a lot of their stuff now.

I think it's really lovely, I'd definitely keep if I were you OP.

Lovely shape on you, not sure about the print though.

Thanks, perhaps a plain dress in the same style might be better.

I like it. Definitely a keeper.

I like it!

Ifonlyiweretaller Mon 15-Aug-16 15:09:21

i love it! might just have a look at Boden myself...

WanderingTrolley1 Mon 15-Aug-16 15:16:07

You look beautiful, OP! Definitely a keeper!

ColintheCrow Mon 15-Aug-16 15:31:55

I like it too ☺

Like it! Maybe other colourways would be nice too but that one certainly is.

Redken24 Mon 15-Aug-16 15:34:43

i love it

Its a keeper!

I need a dress for a evening summer wedding do next week so I had a look at the Boden website but can't see that dress. I like it that much, and as another 5ft 3er, it is hard to find nice maxi dresses that are the right length. Do you have a link OP?

Destinysdaughter Mon 15-Aug-16 17:28:54

It's nice on you, keep it 😁

Naicecuppatea Mon 15-Aug-16 17:38:48

Thank you for the confirmation - I think I will keep it as it is very comfy.

Here is the link, the colour way I have got seems to have gone now.

Naicecuppatea Mon 15-Aug-16 17:40:22

Sorry, just realised the above link is way more than I paid! Try this one.

Oly5 Mon 15-Aug-16 17:46:39

Like it. Keep

MissPronounced Mon 15-Aug-16 18:10:28

I see you've already been convinced, but it's a definite keeper! It fits you fabulously.

NapoleonsNose Mon 15-Aug-16 18:44:55

Thank you OP!

Looks better on you than on Boden modelssmile

TheNaze73 Mon 15-Aug-16 19:17:49

You & the dress look fabulous. Keep it smile

GobblersKnob Mon 15-Aug-16 19:19:28

It looks lovely I have toyed with getting it (and in that colour way as I think it's fab) but I really have overspent in the Boden sale this year, it's all got so nice, bastards grin

Looks great on you. Definitely a keeper!
