This dress looks plain by itself but when you pair it with some glamorous accessories, this dress is quite something! I’m in my “smocked size” here which is a size down from my “zipper size.” I’m 5’2” for reference.
Love this! I ended up sizing down after a while, and I would recommend that for this one! It also makes the neckline a little smaller so your bra straps don't hang out.
The Lani dress has a very nice soft material. The top is super stretchy so it can definitely be sized down if needed.
I love the color, fabric, and length of this dress. The sleeves are great, too. It is the perfect everyday dress!
Perfect for petite ladies. I'm 4'11 and it his above ankles.
Love it. So happy i managed to snag one while on sale too.
This dress is perfection!! I wore it for Palm Sunday following a cream theme for the girls, and oh my word I felt so comfortable and beautiful!! I didn’t have to do any alterations it fit snug in all the right places. I didn’t even have to wear a girdle, can I get an amen?! Haha! The quality of the fabric stands out to me, contrasted beautifully and felt sturdy. Love it, and new favorite in my collection of Ivy City dresses.
*I wore a 3X for reference, I’m 310lbs and 5’2
Loved matching with my daughter! The dress was true to size and extremely comfortable!
I keep going back because of the perfection in the fabrics ivy uses. I like posting close ups because I don’t see a lot of them. But the quality of each fabric is what makes these dresses worth the pennies.
This dress was a gift for my daughter. She really likes it.
Beautiful dress with the best quality material, so silky soft!
Perfect dress from engagement photos!! Great quality!
Always a Lani fan! Purchased the cream Lani for a beach photo shoot with my family and I think it will be perfect! I sized down to a medium as I mostly do with smocked and it's a perfect fit. I do feel the cream Lani smocking is alittle tighter than the black Lani smocking, however it could just be me! For reference: I am 5'7, 36D chest, and size 10/30 waist!
Love this gorgeous dress! Love the shape and the tiered skirt and puffed sleeves. It’s a perfect cream color, just what I was looking for for family pictures. Very happy with this dress, it’s one of my favorite pieces in my closet!
I love the dress!! The color is really pretty and it’s so flowy. It fits true to size. Absolutely perfect for the warm weather. Excited to wear it coming spring.
Love the quality of this dress and it looks exactly as pictured!
Wonderfully made and very flattering. Will buy again in the future.
Love this dress! The fabric is soft. Looks natural and its length is great. Love the silhouette and its twirl. It’s perfect in every way!
The fabric and color are beautiful. Not sure I like the sleeve length and smocked bodice on me. I sized down.
this dress is so comfy and pretty! the smocking let’s you size down and the color is just perfect!
I loved this dress! It’s 1000% worth the price. You are paying for what you get! The fabric was very soft and everything fit like I wanted it to. I just ordered another dress and I can’t wait to wear it for my family Christmas pictures! ❤️
I want this fabric in sooo many dresses! It’s so soft, light, comfortable, and sooo pretty!! Love this dress. TTS, but you could easily size down as well.
SIZE DOWN!! but this fabric is extremely comfortable! The color is a little different in person. It’s definitely darker and I love it!
I love the fit of this but the cream is quite sheer. I may try exchanging it for a different colour!
You can definitely size down with the smocking. Love how soft the fabric is. So pretty! Just needs pockets!
Wearing the xs, I’m usually a size 4-6, amazing fabric , if in between sizes you can size down. I’m 5’2”, 135 lbs for reference ❤️
Easily my most worn Ivy city dress, the fabric is soft and perfect for all year long. I have it in 4 colors, that’s how much I love it. I sized down to the xs, I’m 135lbs, 5’2” for reference.
This is the PERFECT everyday dress. It is sooo easy to style in a million different ways, the smocking is super comfy, the sleeves are great, and I love how lightweight the skirt is!
My favorite silhouette from Ivy City Co hands down! I love the comfortable fabric and the smocking. I sized down two sizes and it's absolutely perfect. I will buy this dress in allllll the colors and patterns please!
TTS but I would recommend wearing a slip
This dress fit perfectly and was very flattering! True to size and comfortable to wear and move around in!
I LOVE this dress! So comfortable and cute!!
I love all of my ivy city dresses, they are such good quality and always flattering!
I want every color in the Lani! This dress is so comfortable and flattering! LOVE it!!! Thank you Ivy City Co!
Lo compré en mi talla real L. Y me encanta! Quiero comprarlo en otros colores. Es Perfecto!
I personally wouldn’t order from Ivy City again. I wanted to like it so much but was underwhelmed when I finally got my order. I originally ordered a small (which was in stock online) and the day I got a shipping notification I tracked it and it said “cancelled”. I waited a day and still didn’t hear anything from Ivy City themselves. So I ended up emailing them and was told that “I’m sure this is disappointing but our stock was miscounted”. If I had gotten an email telling me that I wouldn’t have been annoyed but I didn’t. And I felt like the customer service I received was lacking. Then I ordered a different size and just wasn’t very pleased with the quality for the price. I’ve heard such good things about this company and the dresses but I wasn’t impressed.
Any colors that the Lani comes in I will for sure be getting! This is my favorite Ivy dress to wear any day of the week. It’s so comfortable, the fabric is breathable, and the silhouette is flattering on everyone! I wear a 2x tts but in this dress I prefer the 1x. If you like a fitted look, size down one.
This is dress is a dream! The cream color is the perfect neutral and goes with every season! I also love how easy it is to dress up or down! Love it so much with a Jean jacket and tennis shoes! It’s also the comfiest Ivy City dress I own, by far. It is super stretchy, so you can for sure size down—I bought my true to size XS, but wish I had gotten a size smaller so the smocking would be even tighter!
This dress is a dream! Comfiest Ivy City dress I own, by far! It is super stretchy, so you can for sure size down—I bought my true to size XS, but wish I had gotten a size smaller so the smocking would be even tighter! I would say the color is slightly more green/less blue in real life than the pictures on the site. I actually love the color in real life much more!
I love my lani dress! So pretty and flattering. You can dress it up or down.
BUY THE DRESS! I’m 27 weeks pregnant, 5’11” and purchased the XL. My favorite part about this dress is that it is so stretchy, I know that it will fit me throughout my whole pregnancy + I’m hoping to wear it after too! Love the neutral color, as it looked so feminine in our maternity pictures :-) such good quality too! Will definitely be purchasing more from Ivy City CO!!
Wore for family photos where we ran and played. It was very comfortable and the color was lovely. The stretchy material on the top did ride up, but mostly because I was playing with my kids. I would buy it all over again.
Obsessed to say the least. This dress was perfect for my maternity photos. I’m 5’4, pregnancy weight 155 pounds and 36 weeks. Don’t hesitate, buy the dress.
Definitely another one of my favorite comfy dresses in a pretty ivory tone. I am 129 lbs/28 waist/ 34 bust and S fits nicely. Material is flowy and almost gauze-like. Not hot for summer.
I used this dress for my engagements! It is so GORGEOUS. It was perfect for running in the fields. I’m in love with my pictures.
The Lani dress is my favorite everyday dress! What I love about it: the fabric and feel of it, the length, the silhouette, it is nursing and maternity friendly, the smocking and length of it, and the colors. The only thing I will mention is that the elastic around the arm is a little tighter than some of the other Ivy City puff sleeve dresses. Love this dress!
Love the soft fabric! The smocked bodice is a must for nursing :) I am not a fan of the big sleeves, but I love the dress so much otherwise, I will just get the sleeves tailored.
Simple and gorgeous, the lani is so flattering, and timeless, I don’t think it will ever go out of style, it’s really soft and comfy too. I’m wearing my tts xl and I’m 5’6”
This dress is the perfect dress. I wore for family pictures and it looked so good. Beautiful color and flattering. I was a little nervous for it being too long but it was perfect.
This dress is so soft, stretchy, and comfortable! I’m so glad I finally own it in cream because it’s a perfect neutral. I sized down one from my normal non-smocked size and it fits perfectly.
Love this dress! It is great for so many occasions. I got it for family pictures, but I’ve worn it just to run errands as well.
Love this dress. I have it in the black too. Took it to Italy with me this last week and it was very light and airy perfect for the humid weather
This is my favorite dress I have bought from Ivy city! It is so simplistic yet so stunning!
Amazing and most comfortable dress especially for a maternity shoot with toddler . Love the customer care experience when I have to exchange dress with alternative size
Looove this dress! I sized down 2 sizes and it fits perfectly!! So comfy
The sleeves on this are my absolute favorite! So cute and comfy fabric too!
I nervously ordered this dress (I’m 5’1 and thick so long dresses aren’t my friend). But then I saw Lani’s measurements and realized we are close and she looked gorg so I was gonna try it! OMG I LOVE IT! Family pics this year will be my best yet. I feel so soft, gentle and beautiful. It shows off your best assets and hides insecurities. Ordering this in Spice next. Sizing: I normally wear large (I’m a 38DD and size 10/12 pants) but ordered a medium and it was perfect! You won’t regret this dress!
So comfortable for all day wear!
Love the Lani dress!
I would stick true to size on this one!
Fits a little tight on the bust
I loooove this dress. I was a little worried it wouldn’t go with my fair/pink skin tone and light hair. But I actually think it is one of my favorites now that I have it! I’d say runs large or tts. But definitely not small.
Love the Lani!! Super easy to dress up or down. I'm between sizes in Ivy dresses, but wearing an XXS here since it's smocked.
What a lovely dress for fall! So excited to wear this one!
The most perfect dress ever!!! So comfortable and lightweight!
Quality is perfection
Love it so much!! This is my third color in this dress!!! I sized down to the xs and it fits comfortably. The fabric is unbelievably comfortable and soft. You NEED this dress ❤️ I’m 5’2, 135lbs for reference
Pretty for ANY occasion! Big or small, fancy or plain❤️
Darling and simple. Wearing my TTS XXS.
Love love this dress so much! Literally perfect in every single way.
Same as photo beautiful Great quality dress
Lani in cream is BEAUTIFUL! I’m so glad I finally have this beauty! It is pretty stretchy so you can size down from your true size like I did. You NEED this dress whether you are wearing it casually or an occasion!
Beautiful classic summery dress. Flattering on and so feminine. The cotton fabric looks like linen. Love it!
Love the dress so cute snd comfortable! Got a lot of comments.
This is the perfect all seasons dress! I love it so much because you can wear so many ways, dressed up ans dressed down! It’s my favorite ivy dress right now! Literally so comfy and makes me feel so good everytime I put it on! Gives Effortless every single time I wear it.
Pedí el Lani Dress en talla L que es mi talla real, y me gustó como me quedó. Trato de no querer ponérmelo cada semana, porque me encanta! Jaja estoy considerando comprarlo en otros colores.
I am OBSESSED with the Lani in cream!! Love the classic silhouette, the neutral color that can be styled with anything, and the versatility of this dress!! Oh and the puff sleeves are to die for I wear this so often and have styled it so many different ways!! Size down one size because of the smocking
Very soft material and elegant .... great for any occasion ....
I have Lani in black and I've been waiting for cream to come back in stock for a while! She does not disappoint! I love the smocking and comfy material and twirly skirt. You can dress this one up or down! I will say that the bodice on the cream is kind of sheer - I can see black and white under it.

This dress is nice and very roomy. Wish I would of sizes down but still felt great in it.
Beautiful nice quality dress
I was able to size down two sizes. But it was really comfy and I love it!
I’m in love with this dress! It’s so comfortable and flattering. It’s really nice material and not see through. The top part is really stretchy and I could have gone a size down from what I normally get. I do love the dress though!
I absolutely love this dress! It is so comfortable and very flattering. The material is really nice and comfortable.
Love this neutral dress! The fabric is perfect for summer because it’s so light and you can definitely dress it up or down. I am usually a medium but sized down to a small and it fit great!
This dress is so comfortable and so pretty! I received so many compliments on it for my mother/daughter photo shoot! Just buy it! You won’t won’t regret it!
Lani dress is so comfy. Good for any occasion Love it!❤️
Love the texture of the fabric of this dress. I recommend getting one size down from what the size chart says.
I absolutely love this dress!! It is PERFECT for nearly any occasion. I love how light the fabric is and the solid color!! The cut is so feminine and flattering too! I’m usually between a medium and large and got a medium. It fits perfect.
GORGEOUS dress and I feel amazing when I wear it!
This dress is gorgeous! Love all the colors. Fits good, feels like runs a little big. Great dress, please restock the cream one
just like everybody else, I LOVE this silhouette! I think I need more colors now. it’s so lightweight, can be dressed up or down, and is unbelievably comfy. I went w my normal size and love it, I could also have sized down and been happy due to the smocking. LOVE!
Absolutely love this dress! I got it in two colors because I love it so much! So flattering
I love my Lani dress!! The cream color is SO versatile and the smocking is the stretchiest so it's incredibly comfortable. I couldn't think of a better dress to name after the one and only Lani ;) the only problem I had was the stitching. Pretty crooked and wonky at the waistline, which makes it fall in a strange way. Still love it and kept it, but I wish there weren't any issues with that stitching. All in all I do love this dress!
I have been looking for a dress like this for so long! I was so happy to find it. It was perfect for a quick family photo shoot It is my first Ivy City Co purchase and I’ve already ordered two more dresses! It fits true to size, but with the smocking you could definitely size down if you wanted to. The quality is great and the lightweight cotton is perfect for warmer weather. I’m going to be wearing this dress on repeat all spring and summer. OBSESSED!
I absolutely adore this dress! I am so in love with it! I almost didn't buy it thinking I was to pale and it would wash me out but it absolutely does not and it immediately became one of my favorite dresses, I wore it to church the same day it arrived. I bought my true size, size L, and it fits great, but even being very pear shaped I could easily size down one. The skirt has more room than the Madeline even and the smocking is a looser smocking like the Madeline. Absolutely adore!!!
I love this dress!! Beautiful and comfortable! So many compliments!!
I was nervous about the splurge and to spend so much on a dress, but it is high quality. Perfect length, love the movement of the full skirt, and love the material. Can’t wait to wear it for family pictures!
Love love love! So cute and flattering.
Obsessed. Only which they had the smaller sizes for my babies in an actual dress but we improvized
