Those Boden dresses

such as this one

Do they look good on anyone?

I'm small framed, tiny shoulders, DD norks, 5' 2" long legs for a short arse, some post pg belly lard, thighs biggest part of me, and hips and bottom curvaceous shall we say... but size 8-10.

Would I look ok?

Those wrap dresses suit most frames, I take it you would buy it in a petite size? The prints not too large either so it wouldn't drown you.

Ooh, was just about to check if they did a Petite version.Would be perfect if they do.

If boderline size 6/8 on top (cos of the norkage) and borderline 8/10 on bottom (cos of the bummage and thighage - waist and hips smaller) would you say size up or down?

I always find that if I buy an 8 in regular in other places then it means I need a 10 in petite.

I've never actually bought anything from Boden yet despite often writing a list of what I intend to order but never do!

the sizes come up a bit big IME

that style is very flattering on curvy figure adn can always return.

(I have version of that dress but without bell sleeves - it is wonderful on and I often get asked about it)
