Love this! It’s great material!
It was the perfect dress for my gender reveal!
I am kind of disappointed. I bought this because I thought the color of pink was lighter for the cotton candy and mine looks more like a purple pink. It’s way darker in color than the photos, super deceiving . For almost 200 dollars I’m really sad about this :(
This dress is soft, so dang comfortable, and flippin cute! One of the very best silhouettes and definitely one that I think anyone can rock. Buy it, you will absolutely not regret it.
Also for reference I am a size 10/12, 182 lbs, 36DD bust, and am 5’8, and I went with a medium
The smocking is flattering and comfortable for any body type! Absolutely love the dress.
Love these dresses! They are so cheery and soft. Love the thick cotton fabric.
I was a size 10 while pregnant and the medium was a great fit. I was a 38 C and this was very comfortable. I’m hoping they make an emerald green or sapphire dainty floral print next.
I love this dress so much! It is beautiful, comfortable, and so flattering. I can't wait to wear this for our upcoming gender reveal. It really is the perfect dress for the occasion and it makes me feel special. This was my first purchase from Ivy City and I can't wait to come back for more.
Absolutely love this dress! Worked out perfect for our gender reveal!
I love the silhouette of this dress so much that I have it in multiple patterns, but was disappointed to find that the cotton candy dress was made with 100% cotton. Although the product description says it is made with soft cotton, I found it to be quite stiff and this was after I steamed it. The quality was certainly no where close to the price point and felt very cheap.
I love the dress so much!
This dress is great! The sizing chart threw me off, but I got my typical size, and it's perfect. I was nervous that my bra straps would show, but they don't! The dress is a perfect modest option!
I love this dress! It’s a t-shirt material so it’s really comfy, and really stretchy. I’ve gotten several compliments on it. I dozed down and got an xxs, and it fits perfect!
It’s so comfortable and it is very cute in person. The fabric is a bit thicker than I thought or would be, but that’s not a bad thing. It’s not see through at all!
This dress is perfection! So comfortable, cute and the colors are vibrant! I wore this is Disney world to celebrate the 50th anniversary and it was perfect! I received so many compliments. I love this dress and I’ll wear it a lot.
I would say this is my favorite dress from Ivy City but ID be lying since all of the dresses that I have from Ivy are my favorite! This one is a little more special though, since I wore it for our gender reveal! #GirlMom #GirlDad
This dress is so comfortable and a unique Print! I got so many compliments wearing it to Disney. I am 5’3, 120# wearing the XS here- and i usually wear an XS or S. I definitely could have sized down to an XXS for this!
For a very picky and last min person like me. This was perfecttttttttt and made my day even better
Loved this dress! Wore it for our gender reveal party & got so many compliments! So cute! Would totally recommend!
This dress is my absolute favorite. Such a comfy cute staple in my closet. It’s so so flattering too. Will be buying more of this style!
Loved this whimsical cotton candy dress for my twins birthday pictures!
This is the perfect gender reveal or casual dress! The cotton fabric can be a bit heavy but overall the fit is good and you can def size down if you’d like since the smocked top is pretty stretchy!
This was one of my very first Ivy dresses and definitely started an obsession. It made the perfect Christmas card dress to announce our engagement. I love the vibrant color and how stretchy and soft this dress is. You can definitely size down!
This looked even better in real life than in the Ad. That rarely happens. Pleasantly surprised! I felt like a princess in it!!! 5’8/120 lbs. Fit my frame perfectly. Love the feminine colors. So girly. ❤️
I loveee this dress. It’s so soft. Normally I size down for smocked so I went to an XS for this one, but when I buy any others in this style I will stay TTS (small), just because I found this style to be a bit more snug than the other smocking I have. You could still size down if you wanted to. I just like it a little bit looser!!! IvyCity has my favorite dresses of all time, and I want all of their smocked dresses in every color they just do it right!!!
I adore this dress! I ordered it for a mini vaycay and it was perfect material for the warm weather. So comfy and flattering. I can’t wait to wear it again this summer!
This was the perfect dress for my gender reveal!! I was so in love
I’m so excited to wear this dress in the summer! It’s what dreams are made of. The fabric is much heavier than I expected but I think it only makes it better. I got this in a 2x and it fits perfectly.
Cotton candy is probably one of my favorite dresses! I shortened it by one tier and LOVE it! This is a heavier material and I sized down since the fit runs bigger.
The dress is beautiful and very good quality, it's actually a little heavy the only issue I have with it is that the neckline shows my G's
Absolutely beautiful dress and amazing quality!
Loved this dress for my gender reveal!! I love the sleeves and length of the dress! The smocking makes the sizing very versatile. I would stick to tts or go down if you’re in between sizes but you could size up if that’s all that’s available and it would still fit well from my experience.
Love this dress! So flattering! The smocking provides stretch. I got a small (typically a medium) and it fits perfect!
I bought the viral blue and pink cotton candy dress for my gender reveal. I absolutely love it!!! It was somewhat expensive, but with the quality and fit, it was money well spent! Literally my favorite dress.
This is the Ivy City Co. dress that I wear the most. The silhouette is perfect and the fabric is not only soft and comfy it’s fun. I love the playful pink and blue. It’s perfect!
this dress is so fun! i love the colors. it fits great, you can definitely size down with the smocking
Fabric is extremely high end! This dress will last me years! The design is beautiful and everyone wanted to know where I got it from. This dress my disney pictures perfect!
First, I would like to say how amazing customer service is. I live in a small town and I got a delivery issue. I emailed Ivy City and they sent me a new dress without hesitation and I got it super fast and without any problems. Thank you Ivy City thanks to you I got it just in time for my gender reveal party.
I love this dress. Excellent quality, very flattering for pregnant women, everyone kept telling me how cute the the dress is! I felt beautiful!
I’m 5’4 around 145 lbs and I ordered a size small. I hope this helps someone!
Wore this beauty for our family Christmas photos! It’s so stunning in person, and makes the perfect unique dress for photos. I recommend sizing down to account for all of stretch for smocking.
I received so many compliments on this dress and I absolutely loved how adorable and cozy it was!!! Definitely worth it!
Love the fabric, love the style, love it all. I matched it with my little girl for her birthday photoshoot
This dress is wonderful! I wore it for my baby shower and I kept getting compliment after compliment. I bought a size small and i’m 5’4”, 140 pounds and 22 weeks pregnant! This dress fit me like a glove and it’s sooo soft and complimented my shape thanks to how the fabric is stitched. I will definitely be buying more Ivy City Co dresses soon!
It is soooo cute!!!! I typically wear a medium and went with a large and I’m glad I did. It seems like the stretchy part will fit perfect without expanding it too much. That’s just the way I preferred it. It leaves so extra room in case my weight fluctuates a bit, which it does. I’m always between a medium and large. The fabric is thick and nice. It seems like good quality like all of Ivy and city dresses. I keep loving them! I also ordered this for my little one and it runs true to size for her. Overall I can’t wait to wear it!
I LOVE this dress!! It is so comfortable and you can easily dress it up or down. I seriously reach for this dress over my favorite pair of sweatpants—it’s that comfy!! I’ve worn it so much this summer!
I absolutely love this dress. It is extremely flattering and so comfortable. I want one in every color!
The Cotton Candy dress is perfection! I am so happy I finally have it added to my collection. The color, fit, and fabric are stunning. It is so soft and comfortable. I sized down to a small and it fits perfectly. For reference I am 5’4”, 135lbs, and a 34D. It is thick and heavy fabric so I recommend not wearing it on a really hot day. I just have to say this dress is definitely a must have for any occasion.
Great dress and very comfortable!
I love this dress. The colors in it are perfect. It’s a little bit big but not too big to have to exchange but think you can size down. I can’t wait to find the perfect occasion to wear it!
Very flattering dress, but did run large.
Absolutely love this style of dress. So comfortable. Very flowy and beautiful. I could literally buy it in every color! My daughter loved it as well definitely a must have ❤️
Love the color’s in the colors in this dress.
This dress is absolutely gorgeous and the material is so comfortable!
I bought myself and my daughters the Cotton Candy set and couldn’t be happier! It’s a thick T-shirt like material, so thick in fact that I wore it to Disneyland, got absolutely drenched on Splash Mountain, and it wasn’t see through at all. I sized down one size because of the looser smocking and it’s perfect!
Perfect dress for hot Californian summer.
Beautiful colors and absolutely gorgeous fabric.
I was so excited when this dress was restocked! I ordered it immediately and have been thrilled with it. The fit is perfect and the T-shirt material cool and comfy, but not flimsy. This dress is fantastic for work, but comfortable enough to wear around the house or run errands in as well. Buy it!! You’ll love it!
Love this dress so perfect for any occasion. Is 100% cotton I recommend to size down.
Love this dress! I bought this dress for a gender reveal! I sized down from a large to a medium. This dress is very stretchy and comfortable.
Gorgeous! So many compliments!
My favorite church dress
Beautiful dress!!! This is my favorite Ivy silhouette!!
I loved this dress—the fit is flexible. I normally wear between an 18-22 (just depends on the sizing), and ordered this in a 3X. Very flowey, the wind almost blew my dress up several times, which sounds like a problem, but it felt like I was in a movie; when I twirled the dress would bloom like a flower. I was able to stylet very similarly to one of the models in their photos, and absolutely loved everything about this look.
I love the feel of this cotton candy dress but I feel like the dress I got is mostly white.. I would have loved it more if it was a little more saturated with color like it looks in the photos on the website. Other than that the fit is great and has plenty of stretch. I would love to see more madeleine style dresses with the same cotton material.
SUCH A CUTE DRESS! I put “runs large” only because the material is very stretchy and I was able to size down and it still fit perfect! High quality and worth the wait! I cannot wait to have pictures made!
Very stretchy! The Cotton Candy has a thicker, heavier weight cotton material that I love the feel of! I also thought this looked longer waisted than my Indie, just by a smidge. Such a pretty tie dye! My mini loves hers.
This was perfect for my Gender Reveal! It fit great and was very comfortable!
Loooovve this dress! So flattering for postpartum stage and able to easily be moved for nursing or pumping!
My favorite dress
This dress is adorable! It is soft and flowy!
I'm in love with this dress. I'm a sucker for pastels and tie dye anyway, and when I saw this dress, I couldn't wait for it to be restocked in my size. I already knew from the Starry Nights dress that smocked styles fit me well at a 1X, so that's what I got. The material is like a stretchy, thick tee-shirt material and drapes so well. It's so flowy and comfortable that I think I could live in this one.
Love the fit of the dress so much! My new favorite Ivy City dress.
This is straight out of the packaging. The wrinkles did relax and I wore it to church today and got SO MANY COMPLIMENTS! I felt so beautiful and feminine in this dress and I want it on other colors!
Love that it’s bump friendly too ♥️
Second order, ordered an M again. Very happy with this cute dress, I love the print! It did smell very weird when I received the dress, but after washing it the smell was gone. My measurements: waist 74 cm hips 96 cm, bust 90 cm, height 172 cm.
It’s so cute! Can’t wear to wear this to Our trip!
I was lucky enough to grab this cute dress as a sample today. It is stunning and can literally go with everything. Can’t wait to wear this all summer long
So fun! Ready for my Disney trip this summer
This is seriously the softest and most comfortable dress ever!! The smock is super stretchy so if you are between sizes or even just want to size down you definitely can. It is very flattering and perfect for gender reveals or even going to Disney
You guys I am so dang obsessed with this one. I have had it since the first time they've released it and I am still obsessed. It is so soft and comfortable, it is one of my go-tos. I wear it in the Arizona heat and am never too hot. I love the fit and the colors. I can't recommend this one enough! I also get the most compliments on it so I always feel good wearing it haha!
This dress is super stretchy. I’m 5’1 and usually a medium, but the XS is very comfortable on me.
Cute dress! It’s a little heavier than the other styles in this same silhouette since it’s 100% cotton. Was able to size down.
Fit was spot on. Being so fair-skinned this dress washes me out. The colors were very light pastel.. I ended up returning it.
Another favorite of mine! It’s such a fun whimsical dress for spring and summer. Easily can dress it down and make it more casual. I’m in xsmall in smocked dresses and small in regular styles and this one fits perfectly as an xsmall. Glad I could get it before it went out of stock!
Great quality, super comfortable!
I love the cotton candy! The material is so soft, like a stretchy cotton. The pastel colors are perfect for summer and spring!
I love this one! It’s soft and twirly and easy to wear. I love the pastel colors, perfect for spring and summer.
I am obsessed with this dress! It's SO comfortable and cute! For reference, I am in a medium. I'm 5'2", 130 lbs, and 36C bust. I could have sizes down to a small but I'm glad I got my normal size. It fits perfectly.
This dress is so soft and comfortable. The colors are great. In ivy city smocked dresses I size down a size. In most clothes i wear an XL. In ivy city, i wear an xxl in most zip up dresses and in smocked like this I wear an xL or L. Unfortunately, as a busty gal (36dd), I fill out all the smocking and it fits like an empire waist. This isn’t enough of a deterrent for me to stop buying this style, but it does fit differently than lots of photos of others wearing it. In my smocked dresses that are an xl, it’s the same problem, just even more fabric. I like that this is one of the comfiest and most versatile (can be dressed up or down) ivy city dresses I own. If you have animals, this is like a dog hair magnet. This has not been the case with my other dresses from here. All in all I love it and would purchase it again.
Im 5'9, 20 weeks pregnant, 195lbs, got a large. Very stretchy and forgiving material. So glad i sized down by one. Everyone was obsessed with the dress at my gender reveal!
Beautiful summer dress. I’m obsessed with tie dye, and this is perfect for a summer vacation.
The material is nice and thick- good quality! It doesn’t need a liner. It is also extremely soft.
I was hesitant to size down, but I am glad I listed to reviews. I got a small and was 5’7” and around 135 lbs at the time and it fits perfectly!
I would say the colors are maybe a little more pastel than a lot of the photos show- not quite as vibrant, but still very beautiful!
This dress is unmatched and perfect for busy fun days! It is comfortable, beautiful and one of a kind! I wore this dress to Disney World and received compliment after compliment on it. I ordered XXS based on reviews. I think I would have been fine in my normal smock size of XS.
This dress is the perfect blend of blue and pink. I see that it’s been especially popular for gender reveals which is super cute! I got an XS since it has stretch. I wear a SM in the non-stretch dresses!
Love that this dress is SO fun! Brace yourselves though, it is a lot of fabric so it’s a bit heavy. That’s ok though, because it just affirms the quality of the dress! Perfect for a baby shower or gender reveal!
Omg! That’s exactly my expression when I put this beautiful dress on. It’s my very first purchase & everything from the fabric to the ruffles is so feminine & oh so comfortable! I’m 5’2 so the midi fits more like a maxi which I love! I did size down & am glad I did
Had to repurchase this one. Might have to get a new size for my girls but last years fit them perfect for the summer. Sized down to a L. fits perfect and still soft. Do like that there is no back tie.
Definitely size down this dress had a lot of stretch.
I’ve wanted this dress for awhile and let me tell you, it’s gorgeous! I’m so glad I bought. It’s comfortable and easy to move in. I’m a teacher and I will definitely wear this dress with white keds or fun sandals. It’s the perfect dress to dress up or down. I’m between an XXL and 1X so I went with the XXL and it’s the perfect fit.
