Beautiful Boden

Boden is one of my current favorites for online shopping. Everything goes up to size 22 – yippee!

Also everything comes in regular and long – not really relevant for little 5’3″ me, but great for anyone taller.

A word of caution before I go on to wax lyrical – if you are much bigger than a size 20 then this one may not be for you.  Currently I am a size 18 in most brands, but a 20 in most things Boden (many of the reviewers on their site say Boden sizes are on the generous side IMHO – don’t believe a word of it!) when I was a little larger I ordered their stuff several times because it looked so lovely, and I was always disappointed with the sizing.  Now though, I’m fine.

So what is Boden best for?

Prints and colours

This is what first attracted me to Boden.  The prints and colours are fabulous and fun. If you need something to brighten up your wardrobe you are in the right place. OK, so sometimes they come out with something that just goes a bit too far, and sometimes you think “couldn’t we just have had this in black?” but generally fabulous vibrant colours and prints are the trademark.

Dresses

For a curvaceous woman Boden dresses are a godsend, especially the jerseys and knits.  They seem to have the knack of creating designs that genuinely flatter curves, clinging and skimming in all the right places.  If you like to hide your curves under loads of “flowing” stuff this isn’t going to be for you; but if you have the confidence to flaunt your assets a bit then you will love these.

Tailoring

Boden Jackets are superb – really well cut, feminine, professional and fun.  As a well rounded woman I hate wearing work jackets that are at all masculine – they make me feel like a little fat bloke – not a look I really like.  Boden make jackets that are proffessional and feminine – lovely fabrics, great cut and detail – and those colors and patterns are there again! Got to be worth a try if you are a smart dresses, need a jacket for work or a special occasion.

Quality

I’ve been buying Boden for a couple of years now and the quality is great.  Fabrics are always nice, finish and attention to detail is good and things wear well.  Most Boden stuff can be thrown in the washer time and time again and comes out smiling every time.

How much?

Well, not exactly cheap – but worth it.  For an average dress you will pay £80+ for a jacket £100++.  But as I said earlier, the clothes do last.  Also worth noting that they have frequent and worthwhile sales, where discounts go as deep as 60% – sign up for our newsletter to get the latest discounts.

So, what do you think of Boden?  Love it?  Hate it?  Have questions?  Let me know!
