This was literally my DREAM Dress. I ooooed and aweeed over it for months before I decided to make my purchase. I was nervous about ordering it and it not fitting because I haven't had any luck with "going off measurement charts". But the size chart is EXACTLY right. I ordered an XL because it's exactly 41Bust and 35Waist which are my exact measurements. This dress fit me like it was made for me! I told my husband that I felt more giddy in this dress then my wedding dress!
I’ve had my eye on this dress for several months now and my husband was sweet enough to get it for me for his commissioning ceremony. This dress is so beautiful! I love the flutter sleeves and the beadwork/embroidery. The color is not quite a true red - a little bit more maroon than shows in the Ivy City pictures, but still a stunning color! Can’t wait to wear this dress again for other special occasions ❤️
Wonderfully made and absolutely gorgeous on. I bought the size I usually wear.
I was worried this dress would be stiff and not comfortable to wear but i was wrong. It is so soft and cozy and i get a ton of compliments on it.
I love this dress!!! So cute and so comfortable!!! I wore it to take valentine pictures with my best friend and I got so many compliments on it!!!
Love! So comfortable, beautiful and modest.
Loved these dresses for our Christmas Cards this past year. Beautifully made and fit great!
This was so fun to wear for Christmas! I could have sized down one, but I preferred the look of the looser top in this dress. If between sizes I would suggest the larger of the two. I am a small or medium and went with medium.
Perfect for the holidays! So comfortable and luxurious. I wish the sleeves were sheer though - I might DIY it.
Wore this beautiful dress for some very special Christmas photos. It is timeless and worked perfectly!
The detailing is amazing!!!!!! So beautiful and well made!! Love this dress
I love how feminine and fairytale-like these dresses are. I own several items from Ivy City and I get compliments EVERY TIME I wear one.
It's one of my favorite Ivy City dresses!! I love the color and it's perfect for any The size I wear is medium
Absolutely loved the Anastasia for my 10 bridesmaid dresses!! We ordered these a size up at first based on the reviews for the first batch saying it ran small, but we realized the newer (lined sleeves) batch must run true to size! The girls who ordered based on the size chart had excellent fits however! We decided to remove the sleeve lining, and it was super easy to just cut out. The sleeve ruffle hid any jagged cuts! With the high neckline, I was worried it might not flatter every body type, but was pleasantly surprised at how amazing everyone looked! The beading quality was excellent, and the length was perfect with a high heel, and for dancing at the reception! 10/10 purchases!
This dress is a dream! I wore this to the Nutcracker and in our Christmas card photo - I’ve gotten so many compliments and questions about where I found such a gorgeous piece! I probably could have gone with an XS but the S still fit well. I did have to snip some loose threads off of the beaded top when it arrived, but nothing major. Love it!
I absolutely loved this dress!! I wore it on my trip the the Kentucky Castle, and it was perfect. I felt like a princess in the lightweight, twirly skirt! Beautiful embellishment details on the bodice!
I loved loved this dress in red. I wore this for Christmas party and loved to match with my mini. The details are so beautiful!
This was the perfect holiday party dress!
Okay I’m OBSESSED. I saved up for this one for a while and I have no regrets! I actually chose to cut out the liner in the sleeves like I saw some other people do and I love how it looks!:) Runs true to size!:)
Classy and so elegant!!!
This is the perfect special occasion dress. I chose this one as my Christmas dress and I got so many compliments. The material, beading, length we’re all perfect.
I'm truly obssessed with this lovely dress. I feel like a grown up princess.
I bought this dress for my sister for her senior piano recital - everyone complimented her on it! It is stunning in person and runs tts.
I have to size up on most of Ivy dresses, but other than that, it’s the most beautiful, elegant dress. My daughter and I wore them on Christmas Day this year. Can not wait to wear it again .
LOVE LOVE this dress! I sized up one size from my tts and it’s a perfect fit! I work it as my Christmas Eve dress and it was perfect for the holiday season!
I love this dress! It fits perfect, and the material is not itchy.
It’s a very beautiful dress! I love it the fit it great, and feels very comfortable I feel like a princess on the beautiful red dress I will recommend for sure.
Love this dress - so flowy and perfect for Christmas. Im usually a small but did extra small on this one. Love the wide sleeves.
Very pretty dress
This dress is so gorgeous! I’ve been eyeing it up for MONTHS and I am so glad I finally purchased it!
I had to size up one size , I found that the Anastasia runs small. The details on this dress are amazing and definitely eye catching
I was worried about it running small so I ordered a size up and it was too big! Haha so I exchanged it for my true to size. It’s perfect the color and I love the beading. I decided to cut the lining out of the sleeve for a lighter airy look:) but BIG fan. I would get this dress in more colors in a heartbeat
Loved this dress for a holiday party! Stylish and comfortable - received so many compliments. Perfect length, just wish it had pockets!
I am so incredibly sad. The color is a pink/burgundy and not the candy red that is advertised on the site. I purchased for a holiday party (with expedited shipping) and now have nothing to wear for the event. Beautiful quality but sadly off.
Gorgeous dress! So dreamy! Need to find an occasion to wear it to but totally have no issues hoarding it!
Love this dress even more in person! I wore it to a charity gala and auction and received so many compliments!
Wow! Just wow! I truly feel so beautiful in this dress. I couldn’t stop smiling when I put it on. The details, the beading, and the tulle just make this dress so special. I can’t recommend this one enough!
Love this dress! Beautiful color and fit and it has the prettiest little touches with the sequins and embroidery.
Perfect Christmas dress
I am absolutely obsessed with the Anastasia dress and I am so happy I now have it in both colors. The detail and fabric on this dress are breathtaking. Definitely a must have for your Ivy closet. ❤️
Love this dress. Soooo pretty. I would say compared to the small ballerina the small of this dress has a tiny bit more room. I might cut out the lining in the sleeve’s because I love the look of the unlined sleeve more
I bought this for the color and hand sewn beadwork! The dress feels so special and unique to wear
I've been keeping an eye out for this dress, been out out stock. Glad was able to purchase it.
Wore this for my family holiday photos. The dress, color and details are just absolutely stunning!! I can't wait to get our photos back!
Great fit. Elegant design. Worth the price.
Beauty. Detailing is so stunning.
Bought for my grand daughter and it is fabulous!
Perfect dress for the Holidays
This dress is THE Christmas dress!! When it released last year I instantly knew it was made for me and had to get it. It has more than lived up to those expectations!
Wore this for the photoshoot in Paris. It was very pretty and fits perfectly
My Granddaughter, Savannah, 14, could not look more beautiful in this red dress!!!!!!
Thank tot for this gorgeous creation!!!!
What an extraordinary dress...I have never felt more beautiful in anything in all my life! The details are exquisite. What made my experience in it even better was that I got to match my daughter! Will definitely be buying more pieces in the near future.
I wore this to a wedding and it was so beautiful, comfortable, and I got SO many compliments!! It was the perfect dress to wear and I will be shopping here for the next wedding I attend!
Love this dress so much! So pretty and so flattering!!
True to size XL, this is so soft and beautiful!! I loooved it!
The most beautiful dress!
Love the beautiful detail and beading on the dress. Comfortable and true to size. Great for a little Parisian fashion shoot!
This dress is sooooo amazing and unique, each time I wear it people can’t stop asking where it’s from!!
Details are beautiful, length is perfect (I’m 5 4”) runs a little snug in my chest and has no stretch but that’s a typical big chest problem. Can’t wait to wear for the holidays!
I am about 20 weeks pregnant and just barley fit in my tts Anastasia dress. If I could give this Anastasia dress with lined sleeves 10 stars I would! Even without the lining in the sleeves and the small sizing, the first version was about 4-5 stars for me. I believe I rated it at 5 stars because it is such a beautiful and unique dress. However, with the updates this dress is hands down 5 stars (and as I said before I would rate it even higher if I could)!
First update - the sizing! The sizing for this updated Anastasia dress is perfect! With the first version the medium fit me like a glove, but the waist of the dress was higher than my natural waist line so it looked a tiny bit funky on me. The size large of the first version was just too big on me. I would have tried to make the size medium work, but I ultimately let go of the first version Anastasia dress because I just didn't think I would wear it without lined sleeves. The updated sizing is spot on! The medium fits me perfectly with the waist line falling perfectly at my natural waist. Honestly, this updated Anastasia dress fits me the best out of any of the Ivy City zip up dresses I have put on! Most often the medium fits me, but the waist of the dress is higher than my natural waist line. If all the zip up dresses were modeled after this updated Anastasia dress I would be over the moon happy and appreciative!!!
Second update - lined sleeves. The lined sleeves beautifully complete this dress. With the unlined sleeves of the first version it just seemed like something was missing. The lined sleeves take the look up another level! The lining really emphasizes the beautiful beaded details on the sleeve! I absolutely love the new lined sleeves!!!
Aside from the amazing updates, the color of the Anastasia is the perfect shade of red, the embroidery and beading is so well done, the length is perfect, and the fabrics used are so soft and comfortable! I honestly think this updated Anastasia dress is one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever put on! :)
I just want to be sure to thank you, Ivy City Co, for hearing the feedback of your customers and making these updates! I am so happy that I can now wear this beautiful Anastasia dress with lined sleeves! My only suggestion now is that I would love matching mini Anastasia dresses with lined sleeves ;)
The tulle is so soft and the embellishments are beautiful.
Gorgeous! Fits me true to size!!
I’m in between s/m and got the medium. I probably could have sized down to a small and have it fit better in the waist. It’s still a very gorgeous, high-quality dress!! I prefer the sleeves unlined so the sleeves aren’t as “poofy”.
I’m so happy with this dress I purchased and the color is beautiful. I got so many compliments.
I hope they make more colors. I love the red!
The beading is very delicate and noticed that some have fallen off. Prefer the unlined sleeves, but still a gorgeous dress.
I was lucky to get an unlined sleeve version of the Anastasia and I love it! I like the sleeker sleeves that lay flatter than the lined ones, which I felt were a bit puffy. I'm wearing a size small here and I was also a size small in the lined sleeve version! The most beautiful dress
I wore this dress for my engagement pictures and got so many compliments. Now I want one in every close. It’s true to size and I’m an XXS!
This and Midsummer Night are my two favorite dresses! It’s beautiful, glamorous, and perfect for Christmas or Lunar New Year. I also love how I feel in it, flowy, comfy yet it also is fitted to show off my best side
I loved this one! I didn't find the waist tight at all in my true size. Really beautiful beading and sleeve! I'm in a small and my measurements are 36-26-37. A smidge snug in the bust for me (but that's quite normal) and a bit loose in the waist.
Look how striking this was (after party of my graduation) beautiful dress
This dress is a showstopper. Absolutely gorgeous, so comfortable, and the perfect dress for my occasion. Fits true to size. I got so many compliments!
Gorgeous dress! Love the lined sleeves!
This dress is a showstopper. Absolutely gorgeous, so comfortable, and the perfect dress for my occasion. Fits true to size. I got so many compliments!
Definitely measure yourself and go with the size chart with this one. This one is a size medium on my daughter who typically wears a size 4-6 dress. She looked amazing at her Father/Daughter dance. I am very happy with this beautiful dress and hand stitched details and amazing quality. What I love most, is the many modest options. Let's make modesty popular again with this beautiful dresses.
Gorgeous dress with gorgeous detailing! I am wearing my tts medium. I love the color, but it’s fancy enough I felt I needed an event and I don’t have one haha. I did feel like the waistband hit slightly high on me/not in the most flattering spot, but that’s just personal preference.
Another dress I received so many compliments. A bit long for my petite frame.
Such a beautiful elegant dress!! Can’t wait to wear it!
Amazing quality and such beautiful details!
Love the dress and matching my daughter! I think I would have probably fit in the smaller size too but I chose to have it tightened by a seamstress rather than sending it back as it took very long for the dress to arrive and also I had to pay 100€ tax when it came which was almost like buying another dress :( if this wasn’t so I would buy so much more! I love the idea of your brand! Quality is good and the designs are gorgeous! Definitely happy of my purchase!
This is a very pretty dress, nicely made...however , I didn't like the color. It doesn't look like the one in picture, its a dull red color. Therefore , I have decided to return it. I wish , they make it in other colors like Fuschia or some other bright color, will love to buy it again then.
This is the most beautiful dress! It fits TTS - I normally wear a small, which is what I purchased for this dress. The length hits me right above the ankle (I am 5'8"). It is very fancy/dressy; I am not sure that I could dress it down. It is perfect for holidays or special events!
This review is for the Anastasia dress -unlined. This dress is gorgeous in person. The color is beautiful. It fits TTS. It is a little bit long, but I still loved how it fit me.
My daughter loves this beautiful dress so much! She chose this dress to have her violin performances in Carnegie Hall! It's so comfortable with great craftmanship!
This dress is a dream! It's so well made and just absolutely beautiful. It has just the right amount of sparkle. Love the color. I would highly recommend this! I got it for my daughter's senior pictures and now I want one for myself.
I love this dress! Everything about it is beautiful. The combination of beading and tulle is stunning. It’s also very comfortable. It’s perfect for photos, weddings, and special occasions!
My daughter and I love this dress. Just beautiful. We enjoyed wearing it for last Christmas photo shoot and we can’t wait to wear it again. TTS: X-small and I am 5’2.
Super cute and fits perfect.
Obsessed is an understatement.
We went into the store to find a modest prom dress for my daughter. We were so pleased that were several options to choose from. All the dresses fit great. We had a hard time choosing one. Thank you so much for making beautiful & modest dresses.
I ordered this beautiful dress to be my proposal dress and it was gorgeous! I read the other reviews and sized up (twice) and it fit perfect. From the fit, fabric, beadwork, length -- it was absolutely perfect! I got a lot of compliments and can't wait to wear it again to another special moment/event.
LOVE this dress! I an obsessed with the bead detail and the length. It I'd so flattering for a curve shape. I would pay attention to the waist. At one point there is no stretch, so I would definitely verify your size on the size guide!
Love this dress so much. Highly recommend it.
An elegant dress!! Although I prefer the unlined sleeves, this is still such a beautiful dress. True to size and for reference I'm 5'4", 32 bust, 25 waist, 35 hips.
Such a beautiful dress but the sleeves don’t do anything for me, I wish there was an option to get it unlined, but other then day I love this dress! It’s such a pretty shade of blue!! So gorgeous
I loved this dress! The sleeves are extra nice since they are lined. Beautiful for any time of year!
