I ordered 3 dresses + some other stuff. The dresses were all awful and are all going back, in fact everything is going back. The cut is just wrong and the material is nothing special. (We are a similar size btw)
I ordered the spotty tea-dress as I felt I 'needed' a dress (am always in trousers) but being a short-arse, the waist sat just a little bit too low and it looked awful. I'm really disappointed as I so wanted to like it! Would be suitable for your size I'm sure though.
A bikini (ordered 2 but they only sent 1 set and 1 pair of bottoms so phoned up and asked them if they expected me to pay postage to return lone bottoms and couldn't they use a bit of common sense and a woman who orders kids clothes and a size 14 bikini is not going to be running around on the med with her norks hanging out!)
Twinkie lol at the convo with the woman re bottoms! What were the jeans like? And the sunglasses? I also have a Liz Hurley fantasy. Most odd. I don't trust the pix on the Boden site - too much leaping and tugging at the dresses which makes me suspicious - will look at the polka dot one though. I like polka dots.
I bought a pair of the wooden wedges in blue, an orange and pink bikini, a yellow skirt and three cardigans. All are very nice and I'll be keeping them. My one worry is that the cardies will go bobbly as they have in the past.
Just returned an 18 month old shit of DHs as the elbow had worn and split - they refunded me 75% of what I paid for it - so bought new one in sale for what I got back - they have gone up in my estimation for that!
