This one was a little tricky with my 32 week pregnant belly. I ordered the medium initially thinking it would stretch enough to accommodate my ~31 inch chest/upper belly area but it was just a little too tight and uncomfortable a couple weeks prior, I ended up exchanging for a large which fit great around the middle but was falling off the shoulders and puckering in the back. I had it taken in a bit by a local seamstress when I got it dry cleaned at the same time. All the extra effort was worth it, the dress was beautiful for my shower and I got lots of compliments on it, the material and color were lovely and I felt really comfortable wearing it.
Love this princess dress! I bought it for me to wear for my baby's first birthday, and it was certainly fairytale-like and princess-y:) It runs a little big... I usually wear a small in the dresses with smocking like the Starry Nights dress, but this Cloud Nine dress would have been much better on top in an xs. Still, I made it work and do not regret this dress! Definitely a special occasion dress:)
Love this dress! Got size Large and it fit true to size there’s a little stretch to it so if I had sized down it would have fit just right too!
Such a dreamy dress. I’m glad I sized up though because the smocked top is tighter than usual.
I wore this dress 7 months pregnant for my maternity photos and baby shower and got so many compliments! It is so girly and very comfortable even with a belly! If you are debating I
Promise you will not regret ordering this dress! I cannot wait to buy the matching one for my baby girl!
The most Beautiful dress! Did I mention comfortable! Bought for my daughters 2nd Birthday! Received so many compliments. Usually a large with zippered dresses, bought Medium in this and fits perfect.
ALL the feminine and flirty vibes with the Cloud Nine in pink! I get SO many compliments on this dress! The top fits so well, and I love that the square neck is narrow enough to cover garments! 12/10!
Fits great around shoulder area - I got an xs when normally sometimes a small and it's so comfy!! Love it!
I'm so in love with this dress! I needed to find something to wear to a wedding in the spring, and I was panicking! I'm only 5'3, but am overly "blessed" in the chest region as an I-cup. This makes it really difficult for me to find something that fits comfortably up top while also keeping the rest of the garment proportional to my body. As soon as I tried this on, I teared up! I felt beautiful and so relieved to have a dress for the wedding!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous so happy I purchased this I needed a new dress that would be bump friendly it is a tighter smocking so I sized up one size. Im 20 weeks pregnant and it feels great with a little room left to stretch. It is a true light lilac color and the fabric is beautiful and so detailed and soft. I absolutely adore it now that I know baby is a girl I may just have to grab her one. I highly recommend! She is a must!
This dress is absolutely beautiful I kept passing on it cause I couldn't tell if it was purple or pink lol. But after becoming pregnant I needed a new smocked dress so I took a chance on it and am glad I did could easily be my new favorite and it is a true light lilac purple but you could make it look more pink if you add pink accessories. It's very soft comfy and flattering I'm 20 weeks pregnant and still fits with a little stretch not much though! The smocking is also very tight I sized up one size probably should have sized up two for longer wear during pregnancy but I plan to use it after as well so I only went up one size If you are busty I recommend sizing up at least one size. But I highly recommend this dress pictures don't do it justice!

Beautiful dress! Wore this dress 36 weeks pregnant to my tea party baby shower. Went perfectly with the theme and loved matching my toddler
The color of the dress is beautiful . I’m 5' and bought a size small. It is true to size and the inner lining is super soft.
Absolutely stunning dress! I wore it to an event and received so many compliments. I can’t wait to wear this beauty again! Totally worth the purchase
The smocking is tighter on this dress, but it looks really beautiful on. I only wish the sleeves came unlined for those of us who prefer the look of that.
The perfect dress for a surprise party!! It makes you feel like the sun in shining!
I bought this for my wife for Christmas and she loves the color and look. It fit her perfectly and she loves it so much!
I love this dress
This dress is even more gorgeous in person! It’s so soft and feminine with the lovely textured tulle! I wore it to my cousins June wedding and it was perfect!
Detailing on everything is exquisite
Runs true to size. Wearing the size small, I would not size down. Check the size chart, if you’re in between sizes… size up! Gorgeous dress
Beautiful dress for a special event
Just look at the detail on the beauty.
Dreamy dress! Can’t wait to see if more variations will be released.
It does run a little small. It’s not too bad but won’t wear it again.
love this dress! it fits a little tighter than the other smocked styles but it is seriously so pretty
Absolutely loved this dress! So comfy, so cute! I wore this to my bridal shower and everyone was asking where I got it! Adorable color.
The details on this dress are to die for!! Don’t hesitate on this one. It’s so beautiful!!
Obsessed!!! So pretty!!!
This dress definitely makes me feel like a princess! Wearing my TTS.
Wore these today to a bridal shower and we received sooooo many compliments! I introduced ivy city to all of them lol time to rake in the referral bonuses
Love this dress!
Got this for a wedding and it was a hit! Made me feel like a princess. ☺️
Received so many compliments, its such a unique dress. Very beautiful. Fits TTS
Love this dress I get so many compliments when I wear it!!!
Waiting to get this one to match with my little cutie for a photoshoot.. BEAUTIFUL DRESS!!
Love the cloud nine! Wearing tts L! This dress has little stretch. 30 weeks pregnant and it was snug. I recommend getting tts for comfort
Love this dress so much! Hope they make it in many more color options!
Such a sweet dress, so beautifully made and perfect for a memorable mommy and me moment!
The dress is so beautiful and the quality of the dress is stunning. Every detail is perfect.
Stunning, stunning, STUNNING! Recommend staying TTS because the smocking is structured and tight. The tulle is very soft
I stayed true to size on this one- it’s smocked but definitely a tighter smocking, if that makes sense! Love the color and the texture is just gorgeous!
I fell in love with this dress and was keeping a close eye on it waiting to be restocked. I pay a lot of attention to customer's review and according to their comments, the bodice ran small and had no stretch so the suggestion was to size up and so I did (one size). Unfortunately it was sooo big that I cannot wear it. To my surprise it does have plenty of stretch; I don't understand why other customers said it didn't :(
I was traveling after my dress arrived and ran out of time for it to be returned and exchange for my real size. I'm so sad because I really like this dress. It's beautiful, classy and very feminine.
the dress is very beautiful and I receive many compliments
This dress is so FUN!!
The Cloud 9 is a dream! I absolutely love everything about this dress; the color, length, style, and details. It is perfection! I would definitely stay with your TTS in this and do NOT size down because the smocking is very tight. For reference I am 5’4”, 135lbs, and a 34D. This is definitely a must have in your closet.
Beautiful dress. Super fancy!
I loved the cloud nine dress!! It's makes you feel very dressy and timeless! It has a little stretch to it so I was able to fit my 7 monthes pregnant belly.
I absolutely love this dress. Fits great and fabric is high quality. I got my true to size and it’s perfect!
Very pretty dress. Will make you feel like a princess. I believe the unlined sleeves would have looked better, but lined ones are not bad either.. overall, its a very beautiful dress. The smocking is tight, so stay TTS..
What a Delicious Dress!!!!
Incredibly Detailed, Well Made & Dreamy!
Cloud nine is STUNNING! Wearing a L and fits tts. If you have. Bigger bust, I would size up! Smocking is super tight!
Stretchy fabric around the bust is very flattering. Dress looks light and ethereal. Very happy with the quality!
Loved the dress, I just didn't love how it looks on me :(
This dress is true to size. I’m 7 months pregnant and I’m a 38DD. I ordered the large and it was perfect. The sleeves feel great and the chest area does stretch some. So glad I purchased this and have it to cherish in my maternity pictures.
I like ALL my Ivy dresses, it's hard to pick a favorite but if I really have to, this would be the winner. This dress is a dream, comfy, elegant, feminine, unique, definitely a traffic stopper.
For a smocked style it ran small, usually I size down in smocked but I needed to keep my true XL in this style. So cute though!!
Love this color and the ruffles of this dress!
Obsessed with this dress!!!! I’m usually a size small but I sized up to a medium for more room in the bust! I literally think about where I can wear it next right after I take it off! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE! I feel like a princess in this dress!
I bought this for my BFF and it is so beautiful! Very nice and airy too. Size up one size.
I wore this dress to a wedding in a garden.
It was absolutely perfect, I’ve never received so many compliments.
It’s true to size, I’m 5’3 and wearing a large. It wasn’t too long.
Beautiful dress, but I ended up returning it because it was too large. I followed the size chart and it ended up being too large for me. I would have exchanged it, but I was in a hurry for an event dress.
I bought a 2 XL from the sizing guide and it fit perfect! I am normally an XL but sized up as instructed. This dress makes you feel yourself! It’s so beautiful & I feel confident in my curves.
I felt like a princess in this dress! The details were amazing! So many compliments. It is so soft and bonus...it will mot wrinkle.
Slight small in size unlike their regular smocked dresses. Color is lovely and a nice change for what I normally wear. I would recommend this to everyone.
Lovely dress! Fits tts! Wouldn’t size down. Love all the details!
Super pretty and fits tts. I would recommend it
The cloud nine is everything I dreamed of and more! It’s so detailed and elegant! It is a bit snug for a smocked dress so you could stick tts for a tight fit or size up for a looser fit. You NEED this dress!
This dress is so dreamy. I’m so glad I bought it when they restocked it. I’m a size 16, 38C bust, wearing an XXL. It fits me perfectly. There is nothing that I don’t love about this dress
Love this dress!
This dress is beautiful! I feel like I’m finally figuring out my sizing- I’ve had to return a few dresses because I thought my true size was a medium, but it seems to be more of a small. I purchased a small in this because I read the smocking was tighter than other dresses, and I’m glad I did. I think I would be uncomfortable in an XS.
The dress has beautiful detailing including the ruffles and the lined flutter sleeves. I also really like the square neckline!
The only thing I would maybe change is having the waistline hit slightly lower to accentuate my actual waist, but I am slightly taller than usual. I also wish every dress could be made in a natural fabric like cotton or linen! But I realize that’s probably not possible :)
I love it and can’t wait to wear it! So feminine!
Love this! It’s the perfect princess dress. The color is beautiful and the quality is amazing as usual. True to size, tighter in the bust than other smocking, still super nice!
Love this dress so much! It is a tight smocking but fit me TTS. I was hesitant about the lined sleeve but it’s gorgeous overall. Just love the color
Love the tulle. I would stay true to size.
I wore this dress to a friend's wedding last weekend! I love it!
Beautiful dress however it was super small. I hardly can get it through my and and head and I'm usually a size xxs when I order a xsmall.
Obsessed! I took this dress on a trip to Paris recently and it was perfect. The smocking was tighter than some of the other Ivy dresses, so I probably wouldn't size down if you have a bigger chest. I found that sticking with my true to size medium was the way to go!
It really is such a beautiful dress! I just wonder how they go about creating their extended sizes, because with the way this dress and a few others fit, they just extend the straight sizes rather than actually doing a plus size fit. The smocking is a lot tighter in this dress than a lot of others, so def order your true size or size up. I sized up, and while it fits, it’s is very tight in the shoulders and chest. It fits more like an empire waist (ugh) and doesn’t have as much “flow” as a lot of their other dresses. The quality of the fabric is superb and the colors are just so beautiful. I just wish they would put a little more effort into their extended sizes so it would fit us and hit in the same places as the standard sizes.
I am in LOVE with this dress. It runs a little big on my shoulders but everywhere else it is fine. I might just have to have them, tailored a bit. I expected this dress to be amazing but on, it’s even better. I can’t believe i didn’t get a picture on, the day i wore it. It will be one i wear a lot so when i do , i will share a pic. I got a 3X and i also need to figure out my exact measurements. All i can say if you can grab it, do! I love the lined sleeves as i know it’s been a debate but it makes them more flowy. It is also such a pretty color
This dress is so pretty and delicate! I missed out the first time it launched but i was able to get it during the restock and i'm so happy with it!!
I originally ordered this in the first release in a L. I always size down in their smocked dresses. But this dress runs TTS I had to wait for the rerelease & order it in the correct size. It’s my Mothers Day dress for this year❤️❤️
Such a beautiful dress! So happy I was able to get my hands on it.
This dress is TTS, I ordered in size XL is a little tight underarm so I love this dress but not sure if I return it ot keep it.
Buy Is a beautiful dress very chic, I'm 5'0 for reference
So I think this dress is beautiful, but I’d offer a warning for my “more busty” ladies! I found this type of smocking particularly less forgiving than other styles. My chest either looked smushed in the medium or the sleeves were lightly too big in the large. Love the look and feel, but fit is tougher for those with curves.
Definitely buy a size up! The stretch isn’t that stretchy and the arms are tight where they are fluttered. I feel this dress overwhelmed me and made my torso look even shorter. It is BEAUTIFUL but the tulle isn’t as soft as their other tulle dresses and it just doesn’t seem a right fit for me. Just wanted to post some sizing help for someone else in need as I was!
Overall, the dress is beautiful! As everyone has said, definitely tighter smocking and much tighter fit in the bodice. Recommend staying true to size and if in between, size up.
Yay!!! Glad I was able to get this when it was restocked. It’s such a fun princess type dress. I’m usually a small in regular styles and xsmall in smocked but I for sure needed to stick to a small. I wish the waist area and torso would’ve been a little more defined, maybe if the torso was just a tad bit longer that would’ve helped defined my shape more, but that’s my only complaint! Otherwise such a stunning dress with so much detail!
Love love love this dress!!! Wearing size XL. Smocking is tight. Would stay tts or size up
I usually shorten all of my ivy city dresses but I really liked how this one fit. I am 5’2 wearing a size small. Love the flow, color and sleeve.
I loved the cloud nine, was a tiny bit snug on me putting on around the bust area, but I am 36DDD so that is often what happens in dresses that are true to size. Usually I'm a medium in non-stretch, occasionally I size up to large to accommodate my bust. This is such a gorgeous dress with awesome texture.
I missed it when it dropped and just by chance over a month after the drop there was one left in stock and I snagged it. It’s a beautiful dreamy dress. I love it so much. Tighter smocking but stayed tts
I love this dress, just i ordered the wrong size, because I thought is was very stretch but is very tight, I ordered size L, I hope they restock this one and get my true size
