Shopping boden skirts

(6 Posts)

I’m trying to update my work wardrobe. I need to look presentable and “nice” rather than office-y, so I’ve been buying sime cashmere jumpers on ebay and now I need a few skirts to go with.

Are boden skirts big fitting? I’m a 10/12 on top and a 10 or 8 below usually but am a bit Christmas fat at the mo.

The pics of 10 skirts look big fitting to me. Can anyone help?

I'd say they are slightly generous. I'm busty and couldn't fit easily into a hush 14 shirt but can Biden.

Oops Boden

I’m the same sizing as you and I order a size 10 skirt in Boden.

I’ve just seen a really beautiful blue tweed in 8R and hit ‘buy it now’ yikes...
Oh well, if its too small I will have an incentive to lose the Christmas stuffing....

Boden's sizing is a bit all over the place these days. Generally biggish but sometimes exactly the size they'll say they'll be.
