Am going to order this dress:

and this is my first boden order (except mini) I am a size 10 in topshop, 8 in next. What size should I order from Boden?

I would say that Boden comes up really quite big.

I would go for the 8. I am an average size 8 but Boden is always a big on the big side for me.

I guess they size big to make people feel betterwink

I find dresses come uo quite big, I always get a 10 and would usually be a 10 or 12 depending on cut in most shops

def get an 8 with that dress, it doesn't look as though it has any non stretchy bits so you should be able to get in and out of it.

Thanks Girls I have ordered the 8R. (excited emoticon)

Do you also think I can wear it in autumn with boots? It is hard to tell from the picture. What do you think?

I think it will be very thin material, so might be a bit thin to go with boots.

Aah I see, yes it could be thin. I suppose the description of Jersey had me thinking it may be suitable for autumn layering, ong sleeved T under, over jeans etc.

Has anyone got this dress? Also, cannot tell if the colour is more pink, or red.

come back and let us know, because that sizing analogy was a good one. I'd be a ten in next and a 12 in topshop, so when the dress arrives, try it on and dig out this thread ok!?

I have this dress and I bought a size smaller than I usually wear.

And it is thinish, but I wore mine with boots the other day and it was fine. Great for autumn with a cardi.

Oooh joliejolie thanks! (am so glad it can be worn in autumn too)

I may have to buy some new boots

Just received the dress in an 8 and even that is generous! But the dress is gorgeous - a lovely red, smoky blue and brown pattern - perfect for autumn (and I think totally wearable for winter too! Alot nicer than the winter prints for the same dress in the Boden new season IMO)

Anyway, this is my first boden purchase and totally worth £39!
