Any ideas how I could find out the name of a Boden dress?

I bought a dress a few years ago - extremely flattering style! I would like to see if there are any other patterns/versions knocking around on eBay etc but have absolutely no idea what the style was to search with.

Any thoughts or is it a lost cause?

Assuming you have ordered it online, search you email for the order which will give you the details.

They are v helpful if you email. I have sent them a photo before and they’ve identified it

Depending on the age of the dress, look on the care label up underneath the skirt of the dress for ( I think) four digit item code which is usually a letter and three numbers eg W123 and either google that code or ask customer services for the name of the item with that code.

Thank you all. Not sure my emails go back that far as I would have deleted it and my deleted items is emptied regularly.

There is a W* number on the label so I'll try that and if Google doesn't help, I'll email them smile

Look in your orders section on Boden. It will have records of everything you ordered online going back a few years

I have found it by going back through all my orders (it took a while grin). It was 2014 and there are none for sale anywhere sad really wish I had got at least one more at the time!

Many ebayers won't know the name or use it in their listing, which makes your search harder, but you could still get lucky if you set up a search for "Boden dress size whatever" and check back every so often. I've done this before and usually got what I was after eventually.

eBay is quite good for Biden, I'm told

InvisibleKittenAttack Sat 07-Oct-17 13:42:37

Which dress is it? There might be MNers doing a clear out! (I've just given 2 Boden dresses to a charity shop, hope it's not the one you're after!!)

There is a boden pre loved group on Facebook-might be worth a try

Theromanempire Sat 07-Oct-17 16:08:33

It's the Highgate dress although I think it is a lost cause sad

OP I spent the best part of a decade waiting for a top I missed out on to appear on eBay, but it happened eventually, and it still had tags on and was a bargain. Type in any variation of the description you can think of into the search bar on a regular basis and keep going! You can also set up alerts. I wish you the best of luck in your search

I recently ebayed a Highgate dress. It went for more than I paid for it originally!

If you got it online and have a picture of it try searching for the image on google. You could get similar results and can check them out.

ShirleyPhallus Sat 07-Oct-17 17:38:42

This one?

Theromanempire Sat 07-Oct-17 17:41:55

shirley yes but unfortunately I'm not a size 8 grin

ShirleyPhallus Sat 07-Oct-17 18:33:46

Put this post on style and beauty- they'll definitely be able to find one in your size for you

Theromanempire Sat 07-Oct-17 19:45:18

It already is in Style and Beauty grin Will do a new post though with the specific name.

ShirleyPhallus Sun 08-Oct-17 01:27:12

Woops! That was entirely my mistake smile

Tanaqui Sun 08-Oct-17 08:02:06

I feel your pain- I often wish I had bought another Boden Matilda dress- the shape was really good on me!

A1Sharon Sun 08-Oct-17 09:13:24

OP that is very similar to their current Mabel dress, if that helps?

Semiskimmed Sun 08-Oct-17 10:54:43

Send them a photo

The Retail Nurse on Facebook often sells old Boden styles new.
