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.
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 ). I tried the short, but much preferred the regular (for work anyway).
