Purchased this to wear for a recent military ball & I loved it so much. I felt like a princess at the ball in it & truly loved the vintage vibes it gave off. It was a little big on me but based on the measurements I was in between sizes & recommended to go up. I think I could’ve fit in the 2X after all, but no one could really tell that the 3X was big on me. It was comfortable & modest, so I didn’t have to worry about anything the whole night or while dancing. It truly is a beautiful dress.
Loved this dress for maternity photos! So many compliments with matching my daughter. I originally ordered a too small size but it was so easy to exchange for a larger one that worked. I will be ordering more in the future.
I wanted to love this dress but it is just TOO SMALL. I wear size L/XL usually (ZARA, Banana Republic, etc.) but I could not fit in this dress. My friend who wears size 8/10 could barely fit in it! Unfortunately, since it is final sale, I cannot return the dress and have no good use for it. I will have to find something else. Disappointing :(
I’m obsessed with this dress!
I wore this dress for family photos and it was perfect! I felt like a queen! Runs true to size chart
This dress is an absolute DREAM. It’s so flowy and moves so naturally with you. Whimsical is literally the perfect name! I wore it for my engagement shoot and sadly the weather was rainy and windy but once there was a small break on the radar we were able to catch a ton of amazing shots. The movement of this dress with the wind was amazing and I’m so happy with how the pictures looked! We also took the photos in a field and I had several times where twigs or large jagged sticks would get stuck in the tulle and I was 100% certain there was going to be rips in it by the time we were done. I checked the dress over later though and there wasn’t one flaw which was wild to me and just solidified the quality cause I’ve ripped tights and other clothes with less aggression. Overall it’s such a lovely dress and I would definitely recommend it to others! Size wise - I have a large rib cage, long torso, small bust, and wide hips so my size can range quite a bit and be anywhere from small to large in general sizing. I do also have several other Ivy City dresses that are both M and L and based on the reviews and size chart I went with the large and it fit literally perfect! There is definitely no give or stretch so I would go off the largest size on the size chart if you are in between cause there’s no way I could’ve fit in a medium.
My daughter received so many compliments on this dress—even from complete strangers! The theme of their prom was Enchanted Garden, and this dress was perfect. She was comfortable all night dancing and kept cool in southern TX. She followed the sizing guide, and the fit was right on! Quality was excellent, as well. This was our first purchase from Ivy City Co., and it will not be our last.
The dresses from IvyCityCo are amazing. This one is especially amazing, I'm glad I got it. The color is beautiful and the quality of the tulle is exceptional. I really feel like me when I wear IvyCityCo dresses. My self esteem goes up and I know I am doing something right.
love love love! accidentally twinned with someone and it it was perfect. I am related to the groom to the wedding attended and she was related to the bride :) definitely side up, bust area has no stretch/give. I am 5’5, 34DD typically a size M (6-8 sometimes 10) went with a L. Did not wear a bra and it is not see through
I bought this dress for a photoshoot that was gifted to me for my 30th birthday and this dress did not disappoint! It made the photoshoot feel absolutely magical. Luckily I read reviews beforehand that suggested this dress ran small in terms of sizing. I can definitely confirm that’s true! I wear large, sometimes medium and I ordered an XL and there wasn’t much room. If you’re on the fence because of the price, GO FOR IT. You will not regret it. I’m already trying to see which dress I’ll order next!
I absolutely LOVE this dress! Going to wear it for my prom:)
I’m usually a large but I had to get an XL it is not forgiving on my chest area. I am a DD
I went up THREE sizes from my normal size to try to accommodate my bump and still no chance of the dress fitting over it! Every other aspect of the dress fit, EXCEPT when I tried getting it over my bump. And I’m only 21 weeks with a pretty small bump and haven’t gained more than 5lbs in my pregnancy!!! I shudder to think of how awful it would have been trying this on at 32weeks, when I needed the dress!!! So frustrating.
Their advertising to pregnant women on this dress is entirely misleading. They should NOT have labeled this as “bump-friendly”, regardless of indicating it’s non-stretch material. Unless you’re barely into your pregnancy with no bump at all, THE SIZING UP DOESN'T WORK. Don’t bother.
Gunna be so cute for the wedding I am going to ❤️
Great experience with you guys. Received my order quick..Dress was beautiful and good quality..
I had a mini photoshoot with my son and I loved wearing this dress. You don’t need much accessories to wear this dress, it speaks for itself
Absolutely beautiful! Was not disappointed.
Beautiful dress which I can never stop wearing
I love love love this dress! It was so feminine and beautiful, and the twirliest dress of my dreams. The reason I’m giving it 4 stars is only because the sizing chart doesn’t match up with the actual dress. I’m more on the bustier side of things, but when I measured myself I was 36 bust. The Large on the sizing chart said up to 39 in the bust region. When I got the dress, I could barley zip it all the way. I wasn’t able to wear a bra with the dress and it was still very tight. However, I couldn’t pass up wearing this dress for Easter!
For sizing purposes, I am a 36 bust, 33 waist 5’4” at 165 lbs. and ordered a large. It was very tight in the bust area, but everywhere else fit like a glove.
I’ve been wanting to buy from Ivy City Co for a while. Thanks to an upcoming wedding I finally had the chance. Originally I selected a different dress but I didnt love it. Mariah, Kaila, Calla, Alexa, Devon, and the rest of the team went above and beyond on the exchange, being very responsive in the email and the website online chat, and giving size and style recommendations. I ended up going with the whimsical dress in sage in size Large and I would say it fits true to size. I am around a size 10 normally, at 5’9” and 190lbs. I would say it’s a bit narrow at the waist and that would probably be the hardest part to zip over so take the waist measurement on the size chart into consideration.
All things said I can’t wait to buy from here again. Five stars all around on the customer service, response times, and quality of the dress.
This dress is stunning ! No give so size up one if in between sizes ! Only Took about a week to come in ! Very happy with the dress will
Be ordering more styles soon !
I am obsessed with this dress. I bought it in black for my yearly witch costume but I could dress it up for other occasions for sure!! I would love it in the new neckline bright pink color eventually! I also have it in blush and it’s just dreamy. It’s perfection! Feminine and fun!!
My daughter and I are super obsessed with this dress! It’s absolutely gorgeous! Thank you so much!
This dress makes me want to run through the forest in the rain while searching for my true love! One a serious note it’s absolutely beautiful and made well. I received so many compliments while wearing it. I just wish it had pockets.
I bought this dress for my Maid of Honor to wear at my rehearsal dinner, it fit her perfectly (she's wearing a small, about 5' 4"). Great quality, and the tulle is soft and comfortable. The little one is wearing the pixie dress in blush (she's between a 3T and 4T, I went with the 4-5 and it is big on her).
A Stunner! The whimsicals are one of my favorites and this dress is perfect! I love the blush color and I’m happy that with my long legs the bottom still is long enough for me! It is very cute in the winter and spring with a chunky sweater over it!
This dress was so fun to wear at the galentines event!
The dress is so BEAUTIFUL!♥️
You will LOVE!
Fit is true to size.
Love the color and the look! Dress runs small and doesn’t match the measurements listed for sizing. Perhaps that is only in the plus sizes?
The Whimsical dress in Blush was stunning on our daughter Emme! True to size and easy to shorten since she is only 5 feet tall. She wore it to the Night to Shine event sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. She was the belle of the ball!
I think it would run true to size if it had a little bit of stretch but I definitely had to size up because it has no stretch at all. I’m normally a Large / XL… I had to get the 1X in this.
I'm a medium in the Ivy City dresses and a large in dresses with no stretch so I have some room. My bust is 38D. For the Whimsical however, I went up to an XL since the medium and large wouldn't zip up past my bra.
This dress is an actual dream. I bought it to wear to my sister's wedding and it was perfect. It is not easy to find modest dresses appropriate for a wedding. However, I did have to do some alterations. I am average height (5'4") and the dress didn't reach the floor. I had the bottom tier removed and replaced with a longer one (similar fabric). Then I was able to wear a petticoat. The fabric looks like Swiss dot, but it is actually star print. The fit is slightly small. I was debating between two sizes, ordered the larger one, and it was fitted.
I was in touch with customer service and they were a pleasure to deal with.
I absolutely love the whimsical dress, but it does run smaller than my other Ivy City Co dresses. It didn’t work on me, but it’s a beautiful dress!
Gifted our mom the whimsical dress to wear for my parents anniversary photo shoot. She looked gorgeous in the dress and made for amazing photos!!’
not sure why i waited so long to get this dress- it is amazing! the blush color is so pretty. i did size up and it was definitely a necessity
Absolutely loved the dress! Unfortunately it was extremely tight in the breast. I got a size small and it did not zipper up. I guess I had to size up although I was a size small in the Venice Dress. Had to return it but beautiful dress overall!
The top part disnt fit.....would need to return it
SO stunning, the pink is so summary and gives that cottagecore/ timeless vibe. Size small fit perfect, I am 5 foot and 32G.
Are you kidding me!? So so gorgeous! I feel like a princess in this dress and I love the color on my skin tone. One of my favorite ivy dresses! I’m wearing an xsmall and it’s a little snug but I think a small would’ve been too big.
I’m so obsessed with this dress, it’s fits perfectly on me, i wear size M and I’m 5’3,
This is an Ivy City dress I could own in every color! It is such a beautiful dress!
This was the perfect dress for my daughters Alice in Wonderland themed bday party! I felt so magical in this dress! Everyone needs this dress in their wardrobe!
I sized up for more breathing room in this dress. I could’ve stayed tts for a more tighter fit.
I WNAT THIS IN EVERY COLOR. I have white, black, and blush now and can’t have enough!
Absolutely love this dress! The color is beautiful. I wore it to a bridal shower and received so many compliments!
Such a beautiful dress felt beautiful all night but most of all comfy.
Love it! The fit is beautiful!
Love this dress!!! I wish I had every color!
The most stunning dress I have ever seen! I absolutely love it! The tulle, the ruffles, it’s so stunning.
I love this color!
Size up one size. The most beautiful tulle! Such a gorgeous gown.
The whimsical is beautiful, the ruffles are to die for! This dress doesn’t run super small so I would size up one from your TTS
Absolutely loved mine and my mini me’s whimsical dream dress! We got soooo many compliments ✨✨
I have the Ivory color but the Blush is truly so different. Fits perfect so elegant.
BEAUTIFUL bridesmaid dress! I really love how feminine and classy this dress is!!
This dress is so beautiful. I bought it for my 17 year old daughter (pictured holding her baby cousin) for her senior pictures but I will be stealing it to wear as well.
My blue and coral whimsical were true to size. I sized up in the blush so I can wear while pregnant! It’s really snug! I’m wearing the xl! Size up one on this one of you have a bigger bust or plan to wear it while pregnant. Still love it! Especially the colorI do wish the tulle was soft like the coral and blue whimsical.
Gorgeous dress! I s add m in love Great for weddings!
This dress is perfect! It’s so high quality and looks like a needle and thread dress for 1/3 of the price.
Please post on Instagram and tag me, pallavi_jv.
Very Comfortable outfit and got a zillion compliments.
Such a beautiful dress!!
Love the fit and style of this dress! It’s so flowy and makes you feel like a Princess putting it on.
Obsessed with this dress! I want to but all colors!!
This dress is so dreamy. Flowy and light. Easy to move in. I’m 5’4 and around 127 pounds, Wearing a size small. I have a nude layer crop top ( less bulky) under to keep my undergarments covered with the sheer sleeves. I got so many compliments! My mini wants one to match now. :)
I am in love with this pale pink whimsical dress.
Love it in every way. So dreamy
It was great, it did run a bit small for the size.. I bought another dress that was medium size which fit perfectly but this dress was tighter. It is a wonderful dress and got tons of compliments, worked perfect for the occasion
Order small xsmall but it was a bit tight on the waist and a little bit crooked at the bottom. Will be exchanging it for a new one.
Absolutely love this dress! I wanna get it in every color ! It’s also an incredible price truly love this dress!
The blush is such a pretty color, its the perfect shade of pink and i absolutely love it!
The fit of this dress is perfect!!
I sized up on this, I like being comfortable. I’m a size 6, the medium fits like a size 6-8, I think the small would’ve been too tight and uncomfortable. If you want a fitted look, then stay tts. I’m 5’2, 135 lbs for reference
I love this dress and the color is gorgeous, I’m between S and M because of my bust, I buy M and is good, little lose but I prefer like this.
The Whimsical is absolutely a dress you should buy if you love the style and are under 5'5" or want to show off your shoes. My eight year old said this is the most beautiful thing she's ever seen. The fabric and design are dreamy just as you'd hope they would be. I kept mine a few days and kept trying it on to see if my initial opinion of it on me would change, but it hasn't. I'm 5'7", and the length just hits me awkwardly above the ankles. Although I've waited for this dress since last fall, I just can't stand my ankles and feet sticking out beneath this gorgeous skirt. For the price of the dress, I need to love how it fits me. I will return this one, but if it ever comes out in a tall option, I will buy it again.
The whimsical in blush is an absolute dream dress! I'm planning to wear it to my friend's wedding in November (along with anywhere and everywhere else!). It was a little snug on the waist, so I exchanged for a size small instead of my usual XS. The lace and ruffles are so feminine and elegant. Highly recommend!
This may be my very favorite dress of ALLLLL time. I’m truly in love with it. I cannot stop twirling in it whenever I’m in it. WOW. I need one in every color.
Gorgeous princess dress. Fits comfortably. Runs true to size.
So in love with this dress! I had the whimsical on my wish list for a while, and as soon as the blush color released, I had to add it to the wardrobe. So elegant and dreamy! It's a real princess dress. I originally purchased the size XS, which is my usual size with Ivy City, but it fit a little too snug so I exchanged for a size small. It's a dream!
Such a gorgeous dress!! I’m in love with these details, this is a dress for a princess, so excited to wear it!
Bust runs small, and I ordered a size up.
Feeling like a Disney princess when I am in this dress! It’s gorgeous. The length is a bit long for me, so I have to wear high heels.
Love this color! I sized up for my bump and still fits snug. I would go up two sizes if planning to wear with your baby bump. Super cute dress and I can’t wait to wear it
I sized up one size and it fit perfect. It runs small. I have this dress in every color and I’m seriously obsessed!
