I wore this dress just once and I am back to buy more! I wore it to dinner and then we walked around the mall, and I had at least five people stop me and tell me how much they liked my dress! I am 5’3”, hourglass shaped, usually around a size 16-18/1-2x, 42DDD bust. This dress hits me around mid calf and is very flattering. I usually wear an XXL in Ivy City Co dresses, and this dress was no different. I love that it is 100% cotton as so many cheaper dress options today are all poly blends that are either uncomfortable or make me sweat. This dress will actually work perfectly for the spring and summer time because it’s nice and lightweight—I should mention that it is also fully lined and not see-through either! It’s extremely comfortable as well, I found myself forgetting to change into my pajamas because I was so comfy in this dress! Ivy City Co, I am a devoted customer after just three purchases! Everything you make is high quality and delivered quickly in gorgeous packaging. I also love your inclusive sizing and models!! Thank you so much!!
I Love the Madeline dresses! They are so comfortable and I never want to take them off! The blue of this one is so subtle and beautiful! I’ve had it for years and always come back to it.
I love the fabric! I just received mine and my baby’s and i love them. Shipment was really fast, too! Would definitely order more dresses. Xoxo
I bought this dress for an event in the summer. I wanted something that would work for pregnancy but also after. After searching reviews, I decided on this one and bought my true size (for reference, I am 5’ 2” and 105 pounds when not pregnant). I wore this dress at 9 months pregnant for my maternity photos, and it also looks super cute since having my baby. It’s light enough to wear in the summer but lined so well that it’s not see-through at all. Super comfortable and lots of stretch in the smocking.
My daughter wore it to her Winter Formal. I know it is a Spring style dress, but she was a breath of fresh air. Which is just her personality. The skirt spins and she looked so lovely.
This was the dress that first caught my attention and made me discover ICC! Love that they had come out with the XXS when I bought it, fits perfect!
Love this! So pretty and flowy!
The PERFECT Christmas dress!! In love!
I own so many dresses in this silhouette and they are all AMAZING. Quality is fantastic. I size one down from my Ivy City zippered dresses.
Such a beautiful dress and so comfortable! Fit true to size!
Love this dress! It’s fits beautifully, and I always receive compliments when I wear it.
Beautiful dress! Flattering and comfortable.
This dress is amazing! So pretty! I love the blues. This Madeline silhouette is perfect with its longer sleeves and full multi-tiered skirt. The multi-tiered skirts are my fave. MAke more Madeline dresses please! Maybe a navy with pink micro print flowers?!
So good, I needed two! This dress is a go to for comfort and style. Runs on the larger end of true to size. Smocking is forgiving so size down it in between!
Obsessed with this dress in gingham! So comfy, flattering, and a square neckline that actually works with bras and undergarments. Would say it runs true to size, maybe slightly large. If in between, size down!
Gosh I love this dress! It is so comfortable and adorable! I can’t get enough!
Gorgeous dress in a comfortable silhouette! I sized down from my usual XL to a L because of the smocking. If you're debating about the size, I did find that it was harder to cover garments when sizing down but the fit is still great. I wish the picture did it justice! It is my favorite dress from Ivy City!!
Such a romantic feel for a dinner date on the Isle of Skye.
I’m obsessed with this dress, I’m 3 months postpartum and feel so beautiful in it! I’m typically a large but sized down to medium for a more fitted look.
This dress makes you feel like an off duty princess. I'm 5'4 140 pounds got a size small. You would want to size down bit the length in the torso is what makes the difference in sizes. So comfortable.
The basil is adorable !
21 weeks pregnant in this photo and wearing a size small - fits perfect!
This was the best purchase ever! I am usually not the matching type, but these are stunning. The photograph perfectly. The sizing for me was generous. I feel like with the smocking it could definitely fit a variety of sizes. It was comfortable and not too hot or clingy in this awful southern heat! The baby sizing was spot on - I did a 12-18 months for her dress. She is a VERY tall baby, so it was perfect. Will most definitely order again, perfect quality, fit, and photo ready!
Let’s talk about this incredible material! I love the pattern and quality here!
Came quickly. Great quality! Super comfy & cute
Family Pictures were made with these dresses! I’m so pleased with the fit, the adorable style (I’m obsessed with the puffed sleeves and ruffle neckline), the fabric quality, color and pattern… everything! This might be my favorite dress ever!
Absolutely obsessed with the dress! Great fit, easy to nurse in, and very comfortable
I am absolutely in love with this dress! I need it in every color!!
More than I could ever imagine … I have been wanting this dress for years and I finally took the plunge and my only regret is not getting it sooner .
I can’t recommend this beautiful brand enough and the women creating it are amazing
Thank you for creating something that gives me so much joy and lasting confidence
My little doesn’t fit in mini sizes anymore so we do an xs for her in adults. I had been buying them but didn’t like the length on her. We went ahead and removed the bottom tier and loved the result! So comfy!
Love this dress! So beautiful and comfortable!
The Madeline silhouette is such an elevated look on a classic + truly looks good on every body type!! The Madeline in blue is such a timeless look and I am OBSESSED with the sleeves!! It’s so stretchy because of the smocking, so size down one!! I love dressing this one up or down and wearing it always
I love the Madeline silhouette! After many reviews and having always purchased my TTS, L, in this I decided to size down and kind of mad I did. I do like how it’s more fitted at the waist but the smocking in a M on me keeps riding up, digs at my underarms and I just feel more comfortable in my TTS. Beautiful breeze dress as always.
I love the Madeline! I now have in the blue, which is very green. It’s earthy and will be great for fall. I love this dress because it’s dressy, but casual at the same time. I got super sunburnt on the 4th of July and this dress was perfect for a comfy no makeup day.
Bought it for my niece and she said she loves it and her favorite.She’s 11 years old but she is wearing an XS.
I love this dress! So beautiful and comfy! I got lots of compliments when I wore it to church!
Super comfortable, and true to size. Wore it for 10 hrs hot Florida summer day and it was great. The print it’s absolutely lovely
Another beautiful color, love the Madeline dress!
I got the dress to have a cute date night dress and ended up eloping in it!! So comfortable, fits so well, and I feel so confident and feminine!
I love this dress on my daughter, and amazingly she loves it too! Such a comfy and cute fit.
Very comfy and cute ☺️
The tiny floral print is so cute, great quality and the silhouette is flattering on everyone!
I absolutely love this dress. I first got this in pink and have since gotten this blue version as well as the purple and brown colors. I just love that you can dress these up or down and they're super comfortable. I ended up going down a size for this and it fits great, it's still stretchy and breathable feeling.
White dresses with blue flowers are my favorite! This dress has such a cute design. I want one in every color!
This is my first Madeline and I’m so glad I finally purchased it. The cotton fabric is so breezy and comfortable. I also love that the smocked bodice makes it nursing friendly. I got my tts Large, but I definitely could have sized down and had plenty of room to spare since the bodice is so stretchy. Definitely going to have to get this dress in more colors.
Wore the matching dress and onesie with my daughter for family photoshoot and loved everything about it!! Very comfortable (stretchy, no see-through, lightweight but good fabric) and beautiful. Wonderful dress overall. Im 120lbs , 5.4” i wore size small.
Fits just right and the fabric is so flattering!
Bought this dress to do a photoshoot with my daughter - the pictures turned out so well! The dress and matching romper for baby are adorable. I definitely plan to purchase the matching dress in toddler size for my baby girl when she’s a bit older
Well, after deliberating for a long time, I finally took the plunge on the Madeline dress…and I’m so glad I did! I sized down from my typical L to a M and was still easily able to step into it. I love that I didn’t need a slip or a cami underneath because it’s so well lined. And all that extra fabric in the skirt makes it so twirl-able. The cut is flattering and feminine… already purchased my second Madeline dress because I know this will be a staple in my wardrobe. I did use a steamer on it since it had a few wrinkles after shipping. And I imagine the fabric will soften up even more over time. So happy with my purchase!
The perfect dress. If I could I would have them in all colors. Unlike other similar style dresses this one covers your bra strap, the elastic on the arms aren't cinching, and the quality is superb. Perfection. So beautiful.
I love this dress. I’m 5ft usually a size small. A lot of people recommended sizing down because of the smocking but I’m glad I got a small. I think an XS would be too tight around the armpits. The dress is a tad long on me (I’m short so it’s not surprising), it’s still “midi-length” on me but a long midi length. I could hem it a bit if I wanted to but honestly the length doesn’t bother me that much. It’s still above the floor by a good couple of inches. Really pretty. Nice fabric.
One of my daughters favorite dresses. We have such a hard time finding dresses that are modest. These fit the bill. Classy, modest, twirl and makes every girl feel like a princess at a ball. We couldn't be happier with our purchase.
I had this dress in a larger size and when I lost weight it was one of my first ones I bought to replace it. I love this dress it is so cute and so comfortable.

This dress is so comfortable and so pretty! I absolutely love that I can match with my daughter - we got so many compliments from people at the bridal shower we attended! I know a lot of reviews say to size down but it wasn’t available in a M so I went with my regular L (185lbs 36DD) and it fit perfectly!
Wore this beautiful dress to my daughter’s promotion. It was so comfortable! I sized down from my tts to a medium and I still had so much room! Thanks again Ivy City Co!
This is my FIRST Ivy City dress. I am in LOVE and will definitely be ordering more. I decided to post an odd angle because normally I would cringe at pictures that would capture me at this angle but the dress is flattering from all angles. I was happy with all the photos from my son‘s graduation. I wore this in an XXL. I am busty: 43DD. I am 5’7”. This dress is lovely and I can’t wait to order my next dress.
Bought it for my teen girl for a banquet with friends ! She loved it
I ended up purchasing this Madeline in Blue off the BST page on Facebook and it did not disappoint. It is very comfortable and the fabric is so breathable. I love how dainty the flowers are on the dress and the cotton fabric.
Love the fit and all.
The dress is beautiful and so comfortable. Great quality and I absolutely love it for any age women. I plan on wearing it this week to my granddaughters high school graduation.
Usually I wear M, this is perfect in S, thanks God for reviews, as I resend dresses to Bosnia and Herzegowina, and I have 2 of them from IVY that are too big for size and they are in wardrobe. Dress I wear with sneakers and I look and feel good.
Beautiful flowery dress fits great
Love, love, LOVE this dress! It's the best for maternity, postpartum and beyond! I wore my regular size (XL) during my entire pregnancy and after! Still fits like it did before I was pregnant too! Just overall a great dress!
This was my first purchase from Ivy City Co after having seen an ad on Instagram. It has been a wonderful experience all around. I tried on both the medium and the small and ultimately went with the small. There really is a lot of stretch in the bodice and the small, overall, hung on my body better. The medium would have been okay, too, but I did want something a little more form fitting. I'm six feet tall and felt like the proportions of the dress worked well with my body well. I've already ordered two other colors! Will order more with time. This will be my go to summer dress. No more decision fatigue trying to figure out what to wear.
I can't believe how stunning this dress actually is in person. True to size with some stretch in the waist. The pink version of this dress is a really lovely baby pink color in person, I am obsessed!
Need in every color! So flattering and cute for spring and summer!
This print is fun but I just don’t love it on my frame. It reminds me of a pioneer dress. I wish it were shorter and I’d probably love it!
This dress is a dream! I sized down one to an XS because I wanted to make sure my waist was defined with the A line skirt and the puff sleeves and it’s perfect! I want to wear this every day because it makes me feel so feminine.
I LOVE this dress! It is so flattering! It fit perfectly and I got so many compliments on it!
Loved this dress - took my pre pregnancy size as it has stretch and a lot of room so really no need to size up . Medium in dresses usually and took a medium here .
This dress is so comfortable! I love the smocked bodice, and the material is so light. This is a great warm weather dress.
Such a beautiful dress! And I love that I can match my girls!
Even more beautiful than the pictures! My daughter and I wore these for a very special photoshoot and I will cherish the pictures forever!
I ordered a small and I love how it fit me and my mini! Love that it is nursing friendly! It’s not too heavy either. The fabric is lightweight!
Loved this dress!
Very stretchy and comfortable to wear. The cotton is lightweight but lined so you’re covered. The blue flowers are such a perfect print and the sleeves are perfection. Couldn’t be happier with this dress and can’t wait to get every color!
This dress is such a staple for summer. Definitely stretchy and comfy. I could have sized down 1-2 sizes from my usual 1X. The pattern is beautiful and I can’t wait to style this
Truly, I don't normally write reviews for anything, but this dress is lovely and should get some more review-love! It's so comfortable and flattering, and I've gotten compliments from complete strangers about how pretty this dress is! As a petite person, this dress is maxi-length on me, which I absolutely don't mind! It's a great addition to my wardrobe and I look forward to wearing it whenever I can :)
Bought it to wear for my baby shower. Got my regular size since it's smocked and stretches, fits perfectly. Goes so well with the bump.
So happy with this dress! It’s beautiful and super comfortable! Even with my 33 week baby bump. It was perfect for Easter and I got so many compliments. However, what I love most about this one is that it works for casual everyday wear as well!
Comfortable easy dress TTS
Bought this dress for Easter and absolutely LOVE it! Being a mom I try to only buy dresses that can transition well from regular wear to maternity and breastfeeding friendly. I love that this dress can easily be a maternity dress, but doesn’t make you look pregnant if you aren’t. I feel absolutely beautiful in it and will definitely be ordering more dresses❤️
Wow I love this dress !!!!!!! Perfect for mommy & me
Sarah E .
Flattering and comfortable . Size down 2 if you like a noticeable waist!
Love this navy color in the classic Madeline silhouette. Perfect for a day out and about! This dress keeps you looking super stylish and cute, while still being comfy and breezy! I own this style in every color! I’m obsessed
I LOVE this dress! Ivy city has nailed this silhouette! Last fall I got the the Basil Dress and loved it, so when I needed a blue and white dress for graduation I had to get this one!! I got a size XL in the basil and a L in the Madeline and I like how to Madeline fits better. It is still super comfy just hugs me a little tighter.
Love the Madeline silhouette. I ordered a size down, size Large, where I usually where XLs in zipper dresses. The neckline is a little awkwardly shaped, but with adjustment, it looks amazing. The Madeline in Blue I received does not have back tie straps. It is an essential silhouette!
I love the Madeline dresses! They’re smocked so I always size down in smocked size cause it runs big on me, these dresses were all I wore when I was pregnant , and even wore for my maternity shoot, so comfortable and flattering
I think the dress is pretty true to size. I tried the xxs and it was a perfect fit. Didn’t feel too tight around the torso. I’m 5.1’ and I feel the length was pretty good in me even when the dress is regular and not petite. The fabric is light and perfect for spring and summer, but can easily be transitioned to colder days if you put a jacket or even better throw a sweater on and wear it as a skirt! The matching mini dress is also soooo pretty!
P.S. this dress is perfect to twirl on
So comfy and fits true to size - and I feel so beautiful when I wear this dress!
Cute dress but I found that this has more stretch than the 1st release. I’m wearing size xs, 5’1” in height.
Wanna know what’s so great about this dress- besides it’s stunning silhouette! How high quality and stretchy it is! I really wasn’t sure it would work for pregnancy or not- but oh man it’s perfect! I feel so pretty in this! You need one- for pregnancy or not! Haha
I want this in every color! So flattering. I can wear it with flats or heels and I like that it’s not too fancy to wear out and about. Please make more dresses that aren’t just special occasion like this style ❤️
Absolutely love this dress! So flattering and felt beautiful. My daughter loved matching. Great quality and great fit. I ordered a small and it fit me at 37 weeks pregnant.
I’m normally a size small and I got an xs but the top still rolls like it’s too big so I think this one runs big. I would probably try a xxs since I don’t like it so loose. Also disappointed since I really wanted the white background and blue flowers but it’s more of a mint blue with flowers.
I think I am one of the few that stays in their TTS with smocked dresses. I bought the pink Madeline a year ago and stayed TTS because I dislike the smocking to look stretched or too tight. However, after all the reviews I thought I would try a size down and so glad I did! I’m currently 5 weeks PP and still have so much room in the bodice, even with nursing! But I do like how it cinches in a little more in the waist in my size down. Love the Madeline!
