This dress is amazing and obviously very high quality. Unfortunately I had to return because the arms were too small, but I have large arms.
Would highly recommend though.
Love this dress SO much! So comfy & so cute!
SO excited to receive this dress after looking at it for several years!! The details are beautiful! I am wearing my TTS Small but there is lots of room in the waist. The full skirt makes it the perfect dress for twirling! Just love it.
I wanted to love this dress because it looked so beautiful for summer, but it’s too heavy- especially if you live in the south like I do. I think it’d be perfect if you live in a cooler climate during the summer months, otherwise, you run the risk of being overheated very quickly. I loved that it gives you shape with the adjustable tie and it is modest. I decided to return it only because it would be impractical for me to keep it living in my type of climate- super sad about it!
The sizing chart was accurate in my opinion. I ordered based on that. The dress is well made. It’s modest. The material is thicker and heavier than I expected but im not complaining.
This dress was absolutely perfect for our family photo session! I normally wear an X-Small or a Small but returned for the XX-Small. My daughter is wear the 12-18 month size and is 13 months old. Buy it, you wont regret it!
I’m 64. XL was a perfect fit. I’m tall so I appreciate the length. This dress is heavy because of all the material. Very well made. Hopefully I don’t snag the lace ever.
Bought this for my mom and I for Mother’s day! Being 3 mo postpartum, it was roomy but so flattering! I would say it fit well on the arms and chest and roomy at the waist. With the tie cinch, I was able to adjust to my waist. Heavy fabric but I didn’t feel hot at all on a warm spring day.
My sister and I wore this dress for college graduation (we matched and took sister pictures instead of couple pictures). The dress is comfortable, beautiful, and washes well. I have already sent the link out to my friends. I recommend this dress!
Love the dress, such good quality and fits true to size!
I am OBSESSED with this dress! I am 24 weeks pregnant, and it fit over my bump so cutely. The dress is well constructed, and the fabric is thick and durable. I wore it for my college graduation and felt like a princess. We also bought my daughter the mini, and it is so fun to match with her. This dress is worth every penny!
Beautiful, well made dress! I always get a compliment when I wear it!
Beautiful dress, hubby said I should buy one in every color ☺️
Also, if you have a baby girl, buy the baby one, it’s so so so precious
I have been coveting this dress for years, and I finally decided my first Mother’s Day as a new mom justified to buying it with the matching baby dress. Heavy and full skirt, beautiful embroidery, it feels like it’s going to last forever and the baby dress is to die for. My husband loved it too
If you have a fuller bust size up.
This dress is think and amazing quality fabric. The functioning buttons make for a great nursing friendly dress. There is no stretch so I sized up to a medium and because there is a drawstring I pushed all the extra fabric to the back and I had plenty of room to move around and chase a toddler. Such a perfect dress and got so many compliments on it.
I have this dress in several colors and hope that ivy city continues to produce it in more colors. I size up from xl to XXL for length in the bust and a boxy fit!
I love this dress! It’s one of those dresses that’s even cuter on then off. I bought one for my sister-in-law and her two little girls because I liked it that much. Runs a little large.
The dress is gorgeous and so well made! I am unable to wear it because I have large arms and the sleeves have no give at all. The waist is also really high but I think it’s because of my larger bust, basically the cinch tie is right beneath my breasts. If you don’t carry excess weight in your arms and chest I imagine you would LOVE THIS DRESS.
I have 4 santorini in different color. It’s so perfect and beautiful. Wearing size L.
Definitely oversized but I got a small and it fits like it’s supposed to. I’m usually a 4-6. It has no stretch so I like the extra room. It’s so beautiful with a great heavy fabric. Can’t wait to be in this all summer.
I wanted this dress to work so bad!!! It was too tight on my arms even in a larger size…which then was far too big on the body.

The top was too tight and I was disappointed.
My daughter loved it! She’s not a dress girl but she loves this dress! There is not a lot of give in the top but it is quality fabric and on the thicker side. Very nice!
The dress is stunning, however; I didn’t think I would wear it enough to justify keeping it. Plus it would have to be dry cleaned to get the wrinkles out. It was a hard decision to send it back. I am sure I will find a dress that is suitable in the future.
I have been lusting after this dress for a long time and finally bought it. I love the dress, it is pretty, has a swingy (or twirly) skirt as my grand daughter calls it and is so much fun to wear.
My 3 year old daughter and I tried our dresses on and we were both excited! She loves anything she can twirl in! Can't wait to wear them for mother's day photos!
Love, love, love this dress!! The weight and feel of this material tells you this is a good quality dress. Will last forever!! Can’t wait to wear mine for Easter!! Will be purchasing more from Ivy!!
BEAUTIFUL dress! I got this dress ahead of time for the summer as I will be going on vacation to Cape Cod, wanted to see what it looked like on me in person, and this dress is PERFECTION! It is sooo classy and flattering. The only complaint I have is the sleeves are a bit rigid as they have no stretch, so it’s a bit difficult to get in and out of the dress. Nonetheless the dress fit like a glove. 10/10 rating for this dress. I am for sure buying this dress in other colors in the future!
Such a pretty dress!! The sizing was a little weird for me. I first tried aurora and sized down to xs. I’m usually a small. It fit fine when on, but was difficult getting on and off. I then traded for a small Santorini. It fit better, except was super tight in the arms. Love the dress, just tricky fit for me personally.

Bought the dress for my daughter. She loves the fullness, length and the color!
I saw the dress initially in a photo. My friend was wearing it. I immediately asked her about the designer and purchased it immediately. Now, I can't stop thinking of getting another. I got TONS of compliments and I absolutely love it.
This dress is heavy and the quality is superior! I love the detail. It is such a beautiful dress!
I'm obsessed with this dress! This is my first purchase with them and I was honestly really skeptical because the dresses looked delicate online but in person it has that delicate look without it being delicate, it is a sturdy material that is breathable. Every pleat is not only pressed but also seen and it just fits lovely. I'm short and curvy and this has fit perfectly. I will absolutely be getting more. I think this might be the first dress I have ever gotten that I have come out of absolutely satisfied. I love it
This dress is so dreamy and comfy! I ordered size Large a while ago, I should’ve ordered a medium but it still works for me and I LOVE IT!
The whole experience was great! The dress came beautifully wrapped. It is a slightly heavier dress because it is beautifully lined. The quality is completely worth the price. The seams are sewn so they lay properly on you. The lining could be the outside of the dress as you don’t see any seams on the bottom skirt. Although I wouldn’t recommend for pear shaped body. Excited to order from them again!
Beautiful dress and fits true to size. I received so many compliments while wearing this dress.
Really nice quality.
I love this dress! I would wear this in more colors year-round if more options were released. I love that I can wear it with socks on cold days. And I look forward to wearing it barefoot in the summer. The fabric feels and flows beautifully and its navy tiered embroidery around the skirt is gorgeous. So many more options would be amazing, navy with white and periwinkle embroidered flower chains. A red and blue one, too. More combinations, please!
Absolutely love this dress!
Love this dress! Ironing took a little while (mainly because I'm out of practice). But it's super comfortable and cute. I want it in every color!
Loved this dress! It's high quality and fits well. I loved that you can tighten at the waist.
This is my new favorite dress! Im sooo obsessed!
I absolutely love this dress! The skirt is a nice weight and is excellent for twirling in. I originally ordered the L, but I exchanged it for the XL. I chose to size up because the sleeves and bust were tight in the L. The XL is perfect for me, and my husband loves it on me :)
LOVE this dress! The fabric is so thick and flattering, it feels very high quality. It was a wonderful dress for the 4th of July!
Beautiful embroidery. Lots of fabric and is heavy, which can be good and bad. It is also quite long for being five feet tall.
High quality, beautiful embroidery, very flattering
Got this during the recent sale and so glad I did! So pretty perfect for fall!
I love this dress. It is cute with out trying too hard.
Love the fit and quality of fabric! The matching baby dress is an absolute dream. It was perfect for announcement photos and can’t wait to retake photos with my newborn
LOVE this dress.. worn it on so many occasions that it's hard to keep track! Comfortable, beautiful and very flattering. The only con is after I had my baby and was swollen, it felt like the arms were a bit tight. Might be worth sizing up to have a bit looser arms.
I love the Santorini! It’s very well made and the embroidery is to die for! However, the arms are too big for my arms.
I say this runs small only because it has no give at all. There isn’t any stretch so it makes me feel a bit restricted but the dress itself is beautiful. It’s a very heavy dress.
There is some room to size down due to the adjustable waistband. My sister is 5’7” 32, 27.5, 38 and wears XXS in this dress. Her TTS is XS.
Got this dress for my little sister living in NZ! She loves it!
I got so many compliments! I love the color, material, lining, stretchiness and fit. I’m 5’10” 175 lbs I got a large. It fit perfect. Comfortable too.
This dress is absolutely beautiful. It fits perfectly and is well made. I am normally a size large and it fits true to size. I can’t wait to someday wear the santorini dress in Santorini!!
I love this dress. I wished it worked out for me. The nick line just didn’t look on me but the quality of the dress is great and the dress is beautiful
Beautiful spring/summer dress. Quality material. Fits comfortably.

Everytime I wear this dress I get compliments or get asked where it’s from. It’s just elegant and the detailed pleating is so divine.
This fabric is incredible. The weight of it is thick and drapes beautifully without being hot. I am wearing a medium and have the drawstring cinched to flatter the waist.
I get so many compliments on this dress and it feels so good on, easy to wear. I go between Ivy City sizes, medium or small. On this one I went back for a small and could have gone with an xsmall. For reference, I do have a smaller chest.
I’ve been eyeing this one for awhile and finally decided to snag it! The dress is a little on the heavier side compared to my other ivys. I had trouble getting it buttoned. I may consider switching them to snaps. Otherwise, beautiful dress with many fun details. You can size down in this one because of the waistband.
I couldn’t stop thinking of this dress for weeks! I’m so glad I purchased. It’s high quality fabric and construction and I felt like a Queen in it! There is zero stretch, even though the waist has a cinching tie, there is no stretch what so ever. But it fit me like a glove so it didn’t matter.
Obsessed!! Love this dress so much! Can’t have enough!
The perfect casual dress
I love this dress! The details on it are so good and I love all of the colors it comes in! Such a fun style of dress.
5'6, 135lbs, size small. This is a fun full dress. It is a bit heavier than I expected but feels like quality material. It is a showstopper for sure. Other shoppers might want to note that the shoulder/arms is a bit more fitted with not as much leeway. But it worked fine for me and 2 years later I still reach for this dress!

Probably my favorite dress! It's beautiful and goes along with any occasion! Worth it!
I waited forever to get this dress. For years I have admired how beautiful it is. I didn't get it because of the lines/ruffle-like details on the bust. I didn't think it would work for me. On the contrary, the bust details did work for me! The lines/ruffle-like details on the bust actually make this dress very flattering! I would say that this dress runs on the larger side, but I got my tts and love it even about 20 weeks pregnant. I am so glad I can cinch in the waist as much as I need to. I am 5'6" and got the long version, which is the perfect length. I feel like this dress can be dressed up or down making it so versatile! Love the sleeves and details on them as well as the beautiful blue embroidery. The functional buttons and true drawstring make this dress nursing and maternity friendly too! I love this dress! A favorite for sure!
This dress is so beautiful! The fabrication is gorgeous and high quality. I love the twirl factor and embroidery details. My husband refers to it as my "best dress" and he's right! I'm 5'3" and an XXL. I bought the shorter length and it's perfect.
Love this dress. The material has heft but it’s also light and airy. So many compliments from strangers on the first wear!
Love it. Im usually a small but I had to get an xsmall size. Run extra big but dress is amazing!
an all time Ivy classic! one of my favorites to feel my best in! This dress does run a bit big. I’m 5’7, 36D chest, usually size 10/12 jeans and I sized down to a medium for a perfect fit!

Cant wait for our family fall pictures to wear this dress! Its so well made. Fabric is thick for definitely not for the summer ( at least not in texas). Im 5”7’ and 160 lbs and I got a size medium and it fits perfectly. If you have bigger arms It can get tight around that area… it can be adjusted around the waist so great for Pregnancy as well. The detail is precious all over.
Timeless dress ...woll treasure it for long time
This was my first purchase with the company. I really wanted to love this dress but it looked very frumpy on .y petite figure.
The quality was superb, however for a woman my size (4'11", 103lbs), it didn't work out. :/
Finally got my hands on this beauty!!!! I love that it’s nursing friendly and that the waist has a drawstring to tighten it or loosen it. It’s really postpartum friendly!
Absolutely beautiful dress. Quality is above and beyond. One of my new favorite dresses!
This was one of the first ivy city dresses I bought. Love it but the arms are a little tight for me I have a small maybe should have gone to a medium? It’s not too bad and I still love the colors and silhouette
I am going to have to return it because the sleeves are too small around my arms. I tried the online process but was totally turned off by the $30 to return it... like I could buy another dress. We will be in Utah at the end of the month and I might just return it then.
I have this dress in pink and blue in size x small. I bought this white one in size small and it’s a little bigger. The cinch waist is perfect though! Love this style dress! So comfortable so beautiful!!
Loooooove everything. Want to buy everything.
I bought the Santorini when it debuted. I have it in both white and the chambray color ways. The sleeves are in need of a major re-design. The band is too small around the end of the sleeve. It constricts and is not comfortable. The rest of the dress is lovely. The sleeves are just a cute concept but horrible design. I have on the white today and literally cut off the sleeves (the Santorini is cute sleeveless, btw).
Love, love this dress! So easy to wear and feels comfy!
LOVE this! So grateful it is nursing friendly. I have zero regrets buying this dress. Want it in every color hehe
Absolutely love this dress! It is made of a high quality fabric and is super pretty! This will be perfect for my engagement party!
I’m in love I’m in love IM IN LOVVVEE. This dress is the perfect summer dress. You need it.
Wore this for tea at the Drake. Perfect fit, lots of compliments. Great for a summer day.
I bought this for my granddaughter ! She loves the dress, along with others purchased from Ivy City. She is blessed!
LOVE this dress! It has major twirl factor and is so comfortable. I got compliments all evening!
I was surprised how heavy the dress is, why wouldn't you use a lighter material to make the dress.
It feels very heavy, and on a hot day in California, it's hard to be in a heavy dress. Just my comments.
Let me start by saying that I stalked this dress waiting for it to come back in stock... and when it did come back in stock.. I immediately purchased! Sadly, I had to return it because it didn't fit my shape in a flattering way BUT that does not take away from the beautiful design and quality craftsmanship of this dress. It's even more stunning in person just not meant for me. The fabric is a nice weighted cottony material with a cute design.
Such a great quality dress. The pattern and fabric are amazing. I've been waiting for this dress to become available and it was worth the wait. I'm 5'4 and the length was just right. Pairs nicely with wedged heels.
This dress is perfection! It’s very well made and so pretty. I love that the buttons are functional and that waste is adjustable. This dress is great for postpartum/nursing. My one complaint, is that there was a small yellow stain when I get the dress. Fortunately, it’s in a spot where you don’t really notice it unless you’re looking for it.
Great fit and the material is very high quality. Love it so much!
This is my third dress in this silhouette! I was going to hold off until the short version was restocked, but didn’t want to wait anymore. I love this silhouette and this color-way is so fresh and beautiful. I like a tighter fit so I sized down to an XS each time. It makes it a little more interesting taking it off, but I feel perfectly comfortable wearing it all day long.
Love this dress! White scares me but this dress is just perfect and timeless. Usually an XL, wearing a L. Perfect fit.
When I first ordered this dress my tts was too big. When they restocked, I got a size down but it’s a little snug on my arms lol. Still fits and not uncomfortable but would have preferred my tts.
