It was a perfect fit and just the right colour to complement my dress

The shoulders were appropriately proportioned relative to size but the arm cuffs were oddly oversized. So fit was awkward.

It's light and convenient to wear over a sleeveless dress.

I made this purchase to go with the Fiona dress for my wedding in July, just in case the weather is inclement.

Good quality and fit.Perfect to complement a dress for a wedding.
15 June 2022
It is a lovely little cover-up, in a very dark navy (it looks almost black). Should be very practical in years to come. It just seems slightly expensive for what it is, but hopefully will last for ages!
14 June 2022
Despite ordering the largest size, the bolero didn't meet across my chest. I appreciate there is supposed to be a gap, however it didn't even partially cover my chest, so had to return it.

This is a well made bolero, very comfortable and easy to wear. I wish it was slightly shorter and more shrug like as it covers more of the dress than I would like.

Such a practical well fitting addition to my wardrobe. Although purchased to match a Carly dress, it’s first outing was over a pale blue dress I purchased elsewhere and it accessorised perfectly. It’s very smart and with 3/4 length sleeves will go with so many thing even on slightly cooler days. I’m delighted with it.

I liked the Bolero if only I had been sent a clean one to start with. The L was too big for me. I have had Boleros before from Hobbs which have had slightly more detail.

Really very comfortable bolero
20 March 2021
13 March 2021
I ordered a large as I’ve recently bought clothes in size 16 from Hobbs which fitted but it was too small and I wasn’t sure even an extra large would fit. The quality was ok.
07 March 2021
As I get older I don’t like sleeveless dresses. This bolero will be very useful for those navy sleeveless dresses I have in readiness for weddings
06 March 2021
Perfect for a mature lady to wear with Hobbs sleeveless dresses of which I have a few. I have a few in different colours.
22 February 2021
got lots of these, and this colour, green, goes with lots of my summer dresses. They are perfect for putting on for a bit of extra cover.
13 February 2021
I think this is a lively little piece. I purchased in cream and black. Hope to have them for years to come. True to size bought a 10
13 February 2021
Have reviewed under a different review as I have 2 colourways

The garment is fine, but the click and collect process gave me a wasted trip to the store.
30 September 2020
Great quality bolero - l'm a size10/12 and ordered a Medium thinking it would be on the roomy side but it was actually a very snug fit. Considered exchanging for a Large, but decided to keep it. Purchased to make a sleeveless summer dress wearable.

I love this, i have already got a similar one in navy blue
29 August 2020

Nice product but returned as I decided I didnt need it. My experience when I returned it (to Guildford store) was OUTSTANDINGLY GOOD
05 October 2019
I like boleros. They are good to wear with a sleeveless dress as a finishing touch. This one is made from a nice soft fabric. I think it comes up slightly big as I’m a small framed 12 and would have normally worn a medium but the small fitted me.
16 July 2019
Perfect cover up. Originally bought this and sent back because the dress I bought didn't fit and couldn't find a larger size ended up buying another Hobbs dress and reordering the bolero, the bolero is beautifully soft, well made and true to size and delivery before specified date
03 July 2019
Bought to wear with dress already purchased from you. Love it.

I have this in three colours. These boleros are great over a sleeveless or shortsleeved dress if like me you do not wish to show your arms. My only tiny gripe is that the fabric is hand wash only....which I have ignored and washed all three on a 30 degree machine wash. No harm done.

I bought this bolero along with the navy Carly Dress as a cover up for a wedding I am attending later in the year. It is a perfect partner for the dress and looks super with it. It is a little snug but not enough for me to return it. The feel of the wool is lovely and soft to the touch which makes a change from a jacket.

Bought this to go with my Carly dress bought from Hobbs. The bolero was a good quality in that it was made beautifully but was very thin, so not what I expected. I bought it at sale price and so did not return it as it may be useful in my summer wardrobe. If I had paid the full price I would have returned it.

Still awaiting delivery. Please can you let me know where it is? I ordered it for my daughter and hoped it would arrive before Christmas.

in the website it showed a nice navy colour, so I bought thinking it will much my dress. In reality it is very dark navy. I have to return it.

Happy with the quality and style but the colour was more dusty pink than pretty pastel pink which is what I really wanted. I found the size very generous and on reflection could have ordered a size smaller.

I have a number of these boleros to wear with sleeveless dresses to cover upper arms and for warmth. Seems greater numbers are available these days - so often run out of stock in the past. Good sizes/fit and complement a number of dresses. Sometimes reduced as colours come and go.

Perfect cover up. I have several of this bolero in different colours. Sometimes you don’t want a full length cardigan or a jacket with a dress so this fits the bill perfectly.
