I got the new Wrap catalogue through - it's like Boden but much, much NICER

Look at this lovely top half price

this £49 quid cardie


and they have a jersey dress in that print for £59

lovely jersey twist front tunic which is longer at the back

this stuff is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than Boden and there's loads of the stuff I particularly like with money off at the moment.

ANy idea how their sizing comes up>

It seems very standard to me (I'm an 18) - I bought a dress in the summer and one cardie (just about to buy all the stuff I linked to) and it fits great - generous-ish, sort of M&S fitting to me.

I find boden sizing a bit weird - tops seems smaller (and shrink) but the bottoms seem larger.

Thanks - I am always stuck between 14 and 16 and never know which to go for.
But I like the look of that tunic very much.
And one of the dresses...
I shall risk 14...

Lovely stuff have added a few bits to my basket, do you have any discount codes to share?

I like it too. I bought a lovely jersey dress this summer and got loads of compliments. The quality is as good if not better than boden imo.

However...I did an order last week and it STILL isn't here, despite an e-mail 2 days ago to say it was on its way <drums fingers> iirc the summer dress delivery was equally as slow


I think as they are competing in a market with boden that there delivery prices are a bit steep.


they do this random thing of reducing prices on things, but never let you know (unless those e-mails are heading into my spam) which seems a bit bonkers as you have to rememebr to regularly check their website if you have spotted something you like but want to wait for it to be reduced.

Don't get me wrong, their staple things are great and there is none of the vomitorious sassy hotpotch nonsense or asking the bleeding models what their favorite root vegetable is.

Am liking the fact that they do a size 22! This might be dangerous!

boodeniites Wed 28-Oct-09 21:09:39

Boden has started doing a size 22 too... some of the stuff is is quite nice >>grudging praise but i still prefer Boden it just doesnt have the same feeling about it and no resell value on ebaywink

boodeniites - really? I didn't know that. Must have a look. I won't tell DH you told me OK? You should be safe then!

supersal - not that large of nork really. And if I ever do manage to lose weight that is where it goes from first.

Anyway - will resist either site for now as I am off to NY in 3 weeks!!!

BudaBones i am sooo envy

Is there a discount code?

pofacedandproud Thu 29-Oct-09 11:54:42

Blimey there's some really nice stuff there - they've got a shirt that I've been looking for for ages. Thanks for link.

I wouldn't say they are cheap- the cardi I justlooked at was £119 and the next one £65!

I will have a browse but always thought they were a bit staid and over-priced.

Tortington Thu 29-Oct-09 12:32:01

nicer than boden i hear you say?

I think the whole MC population just fainted
