"I love, love, love this dress," and "if you are curvy, buy this dress," are just two of the glowing reviews left by shoppers of the Mischa Belted Dress.

It's unsurprising really, given that Boden is well-known for creating flattering silhouettes and timeless, easy-to-wear dresses that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Here's why we're adding this versatile tea dress to our basket.

Why we rate it:

Not only are the six different prints all completely adorable, including navy polka dot, a scallop green print, a colourful floral design and a kitsch citrus-printed number. 

The shape and tie-front finish are also well-known for being flattering, in fact the silhouette is so popular in the summer that every single new tie-front frock at M&S is currently sold out.

The wide fabric belt helps to create a timeless A-line shape and the knee-length skirt means that it's perfect picnic attire as it is easy to get up and down in.

Finally, we couldn't not mention the pockets; everything is better with pockets. 

It's currently part of Boden's 50% off sale, down from £80 to a very reasonable £56. However, other prints are further discounted down to £48.

What the reviews say:

  • "I bought it in the scattered dot pattern. It is super flattering and I plan to wear it to a celebration dinner. The fabric is a nice heavy cotton. It is so pretty. I'm very happy with it."

  • "If you are curvy, buy this dress."

  • "This dress looks great! It's often hard to find petite dresses where the waist is high enough. I'm 5'3" and the waist hits me perfectly. I love that it flares out and conceals the belly. I got the green print and it'll be perfect for a summer bridal shower. You could easily dress this up or down."

  • "I purchased the blue polka dot and the one with birds. These are well fitting and well made dresses. The fabric is fabulous and they are quite flattering despite the fuller skirt... Love, love these."

  • "I love, love, love this dress. So much do that I bought it in three colours."
