Such a pretty dress!! The sizing was a little weird for me. I first tried aurora and sized down to xs. I’m usually a small. It fit fine when on, but was difficult getting on and off. I then traded for a small Santorini. It fit better, except was super tight in the arms. Love the dress, just tricky fit for me personally.

Bought the dress for my daughter. She loves the fullness, length and the color!
I saw the dress initially in a photo. My friend was wearing it. I immediately asked her about the designer and purchased it immediately. Now, I can't stop thinking of getting another. I got TONS of compliments and I absolutely love it.
This dress is heavy and the quality is superior! I love the detail. It is such a beautiful dress!
I'm obsessed with this dress! This is my first purchase with them and I was honestly really skeptical because the dresses looked delicate online but in person it has that delicate look without it being delicate, it is a sturdy material that is breathable. Every pleat is not only pressed but also seen and it just fits lovely. I'm short and curvy and this has fit perfectly. I will absolutely be getting more. I think this might be the first dress I have ever gotten that I have come out of absolutely satisfied. I love it
This dress is so dreamy and comfy! I ordered size Large a while ago, I should’ve ordered a medium but it still works for me and I LOVE IT!
The whole experience was great! The dress came beautifully wrapped. It is a slightly heavier dress because it is beautifully lined. The quality is completely worth the price. The seams are sewn so they lay properly on you. The lining could be the outside of the dress as you don’t see any seams on the bottom skirt. Although I wouldn’t recommend for pear shaped body. Excited to order from them again!
Beautiful dress and fits true to size. I received so many compliments while wearing this dress.
Really nice quality.
I love this dress! I would wear this in more colors year-round if more options were released. I love that I can wear it with socks on cold days. And I look forward to wearing it barefoot in the summer. The fabric feels and flows beautifully and its navy tiered embroidery around the skirt is gorgeous. So many more options would be amazing, navy with white and periwinkle embroidered flower chains. A red and blue one, too. More combinations, please!
Absolutely love this dress!
Love this dress! Ironing took a little while (mainly because I'm out of practice). But it's super comfortable and cute. I want it in every color!
Loved this dress! It's high quality and fits well. I loved that you can tighten at the waist.
This is my new favorite dress! Im sooo obsessed!
I absolutely love this dress! The skirt is a nice weight and is excellent for twirling in. I originally ordered the L, but I exchanged it for the XL. I chose to size up because the sleeves and bust were tight in the L. The XL is perfect for me, and my husband loves it on me :)
LOVE this dress! The fabric is so thick and flattering, it feels very high quality. It was a wonderful dress for the 4th of July!
Beautiful embroidery. Lots of fabric and is heavy, which can be good and bad. It is also quite long for being five feet tall.
High quality, beautiful embroidery, very flattering
Got this during the recent sale and so glad I did! So pretty perfect for fall!
I love this dress. It is cute with out trying too hard.
Love the fit and quality of fabric! The matching baby dress is an absolute dream. It was perfect for announcement photos and can’t wait to retake photos with my newborn
LOVE this dress.. worn it on so many occasions that it's hard to keep track! Comfortable, beautiful and very flattering. The only con is after I had my baby and was swollen, it felt like the arms were a bit tight. Might be worth sizing up to have a bit looser arms.
I love the Santorini! It’s very well made and the embroidery is to die for! However, the arms are too big for my arms.
I say this runs small only because it has no give at all. There isn’t any stretch so it makes me feel a bit restricted but the dress itself is beautiful. It’s a very heavy dress.
There is some room to size down due to the adjustable waistband. My sister is 5’7” 32, 27.5, 38 and wears XXS in this dress. Her TTS is XS.
Got this dress for my little sister living in NZ! She loves it!
I got so many compliments! I love the color, material, lining, stretchiness and fit. I’m 5’10” 175 lbs I got a large. It fit perfect. Comfortable too.
This dress is absolutely beautiful. It fits perfectly and is well made. I am normally a size large and it fits true to size. I can’t wait to someday wear the santorini dress in Santorini!!
I love this dress. I wished it worked out for me. The nick line just didn’t look on me but the quality of the dress is great and the dress is beautiful
Beautiful spring/summer dress. Quality material. Fits comfortably.

Everytime I wear this dress I get compliments or get asked where it’s from. It’s just elegant and the detailed pleating is so divine.
This fabric is incredible. The weight of it is thick and drapes beautifully without being hot. I am wearing a medium and have the drawstring cinched to flatter the waist.
I get so many compliments on this dress and it feels so good on, easy to wear. I go between Ivy City sizes, medium or small. On this one I went back for a small and could have gone with an xsmall. For reference, I do have a smaller chest.
I’ve been eyeing this one for awhile and finally decided to snag it! The dress is a little on the heavier side compared to my other ivys. I had trouble getting it buttoned. I may consider switching them to snaps. Otherwise, beautiful dress with many fun details. You can size down in this one because of the waistband.
I couldn’t stop thinking of this dress for weeks! I’m so glad I purchased. It’s high quality fabric and construction and I felt like a Queen in it! There is zero stretch, even though the waist has a cinching tie, there is no stretch what so ever. But it fit me like a glove so it didn’t matter.
Obsessed!! Love this dress so much! Can’t have enough!
The perfect casual dress
I love this dress! The details on it are so good and I love all of the colors it comes in! Such a fun style of dress.
5'6, 135lbs, size small. This is a fun full dress. It is a bit heavier than I expected but feels like quality material. It is a showstopper for sure. Other shoppers might want to note that the shoulder/arms is a bit more fitted with not as much leeway. But it worked fine for me and 2 years later I still reach for this dress!

Probably my favorite dress! It's beautiful and goes along with any occasion! Worth it!
I waited forever to get this dress. For years I have admired how beautiful it is. I didn't get it because of the lines/ruffle-like details on the bust. I didn't think it would work for me. On the contrary, the bust details did work for me! The lines/ruffle-like details on the bust actually make this dress very flattering! I would say that this dress runs on the larger side, but I got my tts and love it even about 20 weeks pregnant. I am so glad I can cinch in the waist as much as I need to. I am 5'6" and got the long version, which is the perfect length. I feel like this dress can be dressed up or down making it so versatile! Love the sleeves and details on them as well as the beautiful blue embroidery. The functional buttons and true drawstring make this dress nursing and maternity friendly too! I love this dress! A favorite for sure!
This dress is so beautiful! The fabrication is gorgeous and high quality. I love the twirl factor and embroidery details. My husband refers to it as my "best dress" and he's right! I'm 5'3" and an XXL. I bought the shorter length and it's perfect.
Love this dress. The material has heft but it’s also light and airy. So many compliments from strangers on the first wear!
Love it. Im usually a small but I had to get an xsmall size. Run extra big but dress is amazing!
an all time Ivy classic! one of my favorites to feel my best in! This dress does run a bit big. I’m 5’7, 36D chest, usually size 10/12 jeans and I sized down to a medium for a perfect fit!

Cant wait for our family fall pictures to wear this dress! Its so well made. Fabric is thick for definitely not for the summer ( at least not in texas). Im 5”7’ and 160 lbs and I got a size medium and it fits perfectly. If you have bigger arms It can get tight around that area… it can be adjusted around the waist so great for Pregnancy as well. The detail is precious all over.
Timeless dress ...woll treasure it for long time
This was my first purchase with the company. I really wanted to love this dress but it looked very frumpy on .y petite figure.
The quality was superb, however for a woman my size (4'11", 103lbs), it didn't work out. :/
Finally got my hands on this beauty!!!! I love that it’s nursing friendly and that the waist has a drawstring to tighten it or loosen it. It’s really postpartum friendly!
Absolutely beautiful dress. Quality is above and beyond. One of my new favorite dresses!
This was one of the first ivy city dresses I bought. Love it but the arms are a little tight for me I have a small maybe should have gone to a medium? It’s not too bad and I still love the colors and silhouette
I am going to have to return it because the sleeves are too small around my arms. I tried the online process but was totally turned off by the $30 to return it... like I could buy another dress. We will be in Utah at the end of the month and I might just return it then.
I have this dress in pink and blue in size x small. I bought this white one in size small and it’s a little bigger. The cinch waist is perfect though! Love this style dress! So comfortable so beautiful!!
Loooooove everything. Want to buy everything.
I bought the Santorini when it debuted. I have it in both white and the chambray color ways. The sleeves are in need of a major re-design. The band is too small around the end of the sleeve. It constricts and is not comfortable. The rest of the dress is lovely. The sleeves are just a cute concept but horrible design. I have on the white today and literally cut off the sleeves (the Santorini is cute sleeveless, btw).
Love, love this dress! So easy to wear and feels comfy!
LOVE this! So grateful it is nursing friendly. I have zero regrets buying this dress. Want it in every color hehe
Absolutely love this dress! It is made of a high quality fabric and is super pretty! This will be perfect for my engagement party!
I’m in love I’m in love IM IN LOVVVEE. This dress is the perfect summer dress. You need it.
Wore this for tea at the Drake. Perfect fit, lots of compliments. Great for a summer day.
I bought this for my granddaughter ! She loves the dress, along with others purchased from Ivy City. She is blessed!
LOVE this dress! It has major twirl factor and is so comfortable. I got compliments all evening!
I was surprised how heavy the dress is, why wouldn't you use a lighter material to make the dress.
It feels very heavy, and on a hot day in California, it's hard to be in a heavy dress. Just my comments.
Let me start by saying that I stalked this dress waiting for it to come back in stock... and when it did come back in stock.. I immediately purchased! Sadly, I had to return it because it didn't fit my shape in a flattering way BUT that does not take away from the beautiful design and quality craftsmanship of this dress. It's even more stunning in person just not meant for me. The fabric is a nice weighted cottony material with a cute design.
Such a great quality dress. The pattern and fabric are amazing. I've been waiting for this dress to become available and it was worth the wait. I'm 5'4 and the length was just right. Pairs nicely with wedged heels.
This dress is perfection! It’s very well made and so pretty. I love that the buttons are functional and that waste is adjustable. This dress is great for postpartum/nursing. My one complaint, is that there was a small yellow stain when I get the dress. Fortunately, it’s in a spot where you don’t really notice it unless you’re looking for it.
Great fit and the material is very high quality. Love it so much!
This is my third dress in this silhouette! I was going to hold off until the short version was restocked, but didn’t want to wait anymore. I love this silhouette and this color-way is so fresh and beautiful. I like a tighter fit so I sized down to an XS each time. It makes it a little more interesting taking it off, but I feel perfectly comfortable wearing it all day long.
Love this dress! White scares me but this dress is just perfect and timeless. Usually an XL, wearing a L. Perfect fit.
When I first ordered this dress my tts was too big. When they restocked, I got a size down but it’s a little snug on my arms lol. Still fits and not uncomfortable but would have preferred my tts.
Absolutely beautiful! A thicker fabric than I expected, which is great for white (less see-through issues)!. Beautiful detail and flattering as well. I can't wait to wear it on vacation.
My daughter loved wearing this dress to her brothers graduation she received so many compliments wearing it she did order a size down
These dresses match my Tambora Exchange purses perfectly….. I am obsessed with this style. I got already three colors. The beige, this soft pink and the terracotta too. They are super pretty, amazing quality and I get a lot of compliments where ever I go. I wanted to get all the colors, but these three colors were the only available!
Very cute dress. True to size.
I am obsessed with the matching dressed that I got for me and my baby girl. The dress is true to size or runs a little big. I am 160 lbs 5'6 and got size Large. It's so beautiful in person!
Beautiful dress! Can’t wait to match with my family this summer ❤️
I’m 5’8” and 140 lbs. I ordered a small based on the size rubric. It fits great! I usually order a Medium but I think this dress is better in a Small for me because I have a smaller upper body. The embroidery is beautiful, the details (pleats, ruffles, full skirt!) are super fun, and I feel so happy wearing it.
Love this dress! This style is my absolute favorite! It is such a flattering style!
This dress is meant to fit loose, so I quite love that I can breathe when wearing this stile, as I have them all. I will say for the white it can me a little see through on the top portion if the dress. Love and will continue to buy in ever color!
Por si alguien habla español, puede leer mi review. Lo compré para que me llegue hasta mi país, Ecuador. El vestido es bellísimo, el material es de alta calidad. Tenía miedo de que no me quede bien porque soy pequeña de estatura, pero cuando me lo puse, me gustó lo cómodo y bonito que es. Es ideal para climas donde aunque haga sol pero el clima es fresco. :)
So cute! I can't wait to wear this with some tennis shoes and Jean jacket. I ordered my one size down based on previous reviews and it fits great. I still have some room.
Wore this to dinner on Vacation and received so many compliments. Felt so pretty and it was so comfortable! 10/10 recommend
I've been obsessed with this dress since before I ever bought anything... It's the dress that first brought ICC to my attention and it does not disappoint! Blue and white is my fav combo and the embroidery is exquisite. I also love the oversized fit, functional buttons, and gorgeous skirt. I really don't think you can go wrong with this one.
Love this dress! Fits great, except I failed to buy the short version so it’s pretty long and large on my torso, so short girls, definitely get the short version. I’m 5’1’’ xsmall in a lot of styles and that’s the size I got. Fabric is also heavier so be weary during the summer!
Love this dress. For reference, I am 5’4, 118lbs. Petite build. 32B. The XS was sold out so I ordered the XXS. I was worried it would be too small but as you can see, it fits beautifully. I had plenty of room. The drawstring allows for extra space. You can wear it tighter or more loose. My girls absolutely loved theirs too.
I tried Santorini in large and Aurora In XXL, and they both *mostly* fit, so I'd say it's pretty flexible. However, if you have a large bust, it just pulls the non-fitted waist right up to the bust to make it empire/maternity looking. It's lovely, but just not great on me!
Such a flattering dress. I love that I can dress it up or down, and it is perfect for so many different occasions.
I'm still uncertain on the sizing on this one. Bodice is TTS for an oversized look but there’s just SO MUCH fabric in the skirt that it looks over oversized on me. If I sized down, bodice wouldn’t have looked relaxed/oversized while skirt would’ve. I wish it were lined too. The navy floral on white is classic though. Won’t go outta style.
Love this dress, very high quality material and detail on the dress. I am a 24 waist and 35 bust and I purchased a size small long. I liked the look of the oversized dress with the adjustable waist, it felt more flattering. I wouldn't size down in it just because I think the larger size makes the waist more flattering. There is no stretch to the top of the dress. I wish the sleeve was just a bit shorter than all the way to the elbow. That is the only thing about the dress I was unsure of. I think this dress works with so many body types. I bought the same one for my mom and sister and niece and they love them too!
Absolutely love this dress!! The cut, style, and fit is perfect! Ordered this for family pictures on the beach I want it in every color.
Perfect mom and baby matching dresses! I have an entire wardrobe of matching clothes ready for when baby is all grown up thanks to Ivy City!
Love the laces! Can’t wait to match my daughter!
Just the most perfect dress!
I liked it, but didn’t love it. The fabric is heavy (and a lot of it), and I knew it would be a pain to wash and iron. I can see why people like it because it is unique and cute on, but couldn’t justify keeping it.
Beautiful but didn’t suit me like I wanted
I am so glad that I was finally able to snag this Ivy City classic dress. I went with a medium and it fits true to size. The waist is big, but I just sinch it in with the drawstring ties. I personally feel like if I had sized down it would be too small in the shoulders and chest.
I love it! It's absolutely gorgeous. I bought a medium but ran a little large for me, so I returned and ordered a small.
This dress solves up to the hype! Beautiful color, length, silhouette. Very flattering!
Funny story- I stumbled across the Aurora dress on Pinterest and searched high and low for it. I discovered it isn’t sold anymore, but found it’s sister- the santorini. I’ve been waiting for over a year for it to come back in stock (and catch it before it sold out.) Then one day- surprise! The Aurora came back! I instantly purchased, but I had grown to love the santorini in the meantime. I few days later it also came into stock so- now I own both!!
I am 5’7” and 118lbs. I typically wear a medium in most brands. I can wear a small.
I ordered this in a med and luckily I can synch the waist. It is still beautiful, but I wish I had ordered a small because the shoulders and bust are more flattering. I will keep it though. Love that it’s 100% cotton.
