I just ordered some stuff today having decided I needed some new clothes for Autumn and yes, the UK has had comments removed but the US site still has them all...hmmm at least they did not remove the negative feedback off the US site.
Can't wait for my parcel!

how weird!

I wonder if they have decided to only publish the ones that say good things?

Pulling them is ridiculous because I found them very helpful. Instead of wasting time ordering something that runs larger/smaller and sending it back, I could just read the reviews advice to order a different size.

Also, the reviews make no difference at all in someone buying an item. All it means is people will order things that will eventually be returned (which happens anyway) and everyone's time will be wasted, including Boden's.

maybe they were not sassy enough

maybe they suspected they were being written by women sat inside wearing Matalan jogging bottoms

good heavens capp-perish the thought!

SOME reviews are still on the US site, but I doubt if all are. The ones I wrote are, but they were saying good things!

Maybe we should all Johnnie and ask why?

I found them really useful re. sizing etc.

should all email Johnnie......

I find that they are there sometimes and not others. Maybe the reviews slow down the site or something. It is, after all, the slowest site in the world.

I was put off buying a skirt because the reviews said the colours were much more faded than the photos show

My negative review is still on the US site.

Indeed! The US user comments tend to be a bit overenthusiastic and gushy...Not at all Sassy! but the UK comments were mostly honest, at least you can still see them on the US website and make up your mind. I ordered a Soho jacket but decided to go up 1 size from my usual Boden based on the website feedback.
