Wondering if Boden sizes are genorous or not? You may have looked at the Boden size chart and guide but still none the wiser. I’d say the sizes are on the generous side overall and yes Boden do run more on the biggers side but I have had trousers and skirts that were smallish or rather more true to size. The best is keep dresses, skirts and trousers true to size and order a size down for tops and t-shirts.
Get a tape measure, its a handy little thing when you order online. The great things about the Boden website is that one of the tabs (third tab) actually gives you the measurements of the garment, so you can see in terms of inches which size is going to work. I find it very helpful to look at the garment measurements and find out what the waist and hip (and length) measurements are and to compare with something in my wardrobe that fits well.

This is mearnt to be a proportionately shortened version of the garment not just trimming the hem off.
