Boden sizing

Just that. I’ve seen a dress I like but don’t know whether to order an 8 or 10.

Do they tend to be standard or run large or small?

I'd say true to size, personally I don't think it's generous sizing at all although others may think differently. I'm a 10 pretty much every where and wear a 10 in Boden. I've tried an 8 before and it was too small (am sometimes an 8 in other stores such as Joules who do very generous sizing).

Fairly standard, but watch out for ridiculously high waists (like so high they end up under your armpits when you’re driving). I’m a Phase 8 size 10 in dresses, and buy a Boden 10 petite (and then end up sending it back, due to the stupidly high waists, most of the time).

Snap on the waists Flannel and I keep telling them!

I would say slightly big sizes, and cut bigger on the bottom half. I wear a 10 bottom and a 12 top in Boden usually, hit and miss for 10 or 12 with dresses! They are more in line with fat face/ m and s than with topshop or h and m if that helps.

Fantastic, that’s really helpful. I really appreciate the replies.

I find them true to size but sometimes too narrow on the bust/shoulders. I am a 34E and can usually wear a size 12 in most shops but sometimes boden 12 top is too narrow for me.

Their trousers are usually very well cut and wear really well.

I find the waists high and the hemlines. I’m 5 foot 8 inches and always have to go for the long option otherwise the dresses end up looking very short on me!

I am a 8-10 (small chest and waist, larger hips), 5ft 4. I have been going for a 10 Regular. To be fair I haven’t tried an 8 (if I was buying in a shop I might), but the 10 seems to fit nicely (and I figure not too tight on a fat/bloated/hormonal day grin). I tried the short, but much preferred the regular (for work anyway).

I find they are a little big on sizes. I'm a large 8 or small 10 and their size 8 fits me perfectly.

I usually order an 8 and a 10 to try as they do free returns.

Tidy waists imo. For me waists end up being tight yet baggy on the bust!

Tiny not tidy

I always need to go up a size.

I’m the opposite-32 bloody F so hopefully it’ll be a nice fit. I’m tall so I’ll get long. I’ll order both just in case and return one.

This is the dress...

I’ve seen it in John Lewis and the green print one is really lovely.

I am a 10 pretty much everywhere but need a 12 in Boden
