Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous dress! First, I have to mention that the photos do not do this dress justice. What you can’t see is how the skirt has ombré sparkles! It is absolutely stunning and twirl-worthy. It fits true to size and the bodice hugs as it should, but comfortably, thanks to the stretchy ponte. The photo does show the colour accurately—it is pale lilac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply dreamy! I bought this dress with no particular occasion in mind, but knew I wanted it. It is a very pale silvery lilac. It nips in just under the bustline and then has layers of tulle and fabric that make the skirt pouf out. The neckline shows a nice amount of cleavage. It creates a nice silhouette on me. This could be worn to a wedding, to a cocktail party or holiday party. I can't wait to have an occasion to wear it with some silver strappy sandals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Husband & Brother Agree I Look like a Princess! I bought this for my grandson's night time formal wedding. COVID19 has postponed the wedding. I also got a white rhinestone & pearl belt to go with it. When the dress came I tried it on and fit perfectly and I felt beautiful in it. My husband and little brother both agreed I looked like a Princess instead of a Grandmother! It is fancy and has 3 layers of skirting under it and is a bit paler than I thought it would be, but I love it and can't wait to wear it to my grandson's wedding!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOLY SMOKES! This dress is absolutely stunning. I'm pregnant and planning on wearing this for maternity photos and to my baby shower. I ordered a size up and it fits perfectly with a little room to spare. The sparkles add just enough princess vibe to the dress. I am more than pleased with this dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Princess dress! Waited forever for this dress and it was worth it! I have no idea where I will wear it...but it is magical :) The bottom part is very sparkly and there is a considerable amount of stretch on top. I had sized up because I thought it might be tight in the bust as many formal dresses are but I definitely could have ordered my regular size. I may even try to exchange when my store opens if it is reasonable soon. I love the dress though!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Princess dress! Beautiful, high quality dress. It’s simply stunning. I definitely felt like a princess trying it on. I’ll be on the look out for a sparkly belt for the cherry on top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous dress! I recently purchased this dress and I have never been mkre happier about buying a dress (since my wedding!). This dress is gorgeous and very well made! It is worth every dollar spent. Beautiful lilac color, silver sparkle. I was worried about my bust fitting the dress so I sized up. Fits amazing, zips up perfectly, and feels like it was made for me. Thanks Torrid!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Dress This dress is so beautiful and elegant. It’s perfect for a summer wedding or any special occasion. The fit runs slightly small so I had to go up a size. It is a steal at this price, I normally spend between $400 and $500 for a dress of this caliber.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Lovely dress, fits perfectly. Only reason I am returning is the picture and description were a little deceptive. The skirt is a full ballgown, a little to fancy for the event I had planned to wear it to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty...but I loved this dress the moment I saw it online. It was beautiful when I finally got it...however it was alot poofier than I expected, and hot. I turned it inside out and cut out the tule the dress instantly became so much more comfortable and wearable. Lots of glitter fall out as well but thats glitter for you :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GORGEOUS but the photos are deceiving This dress is absolutely beautiful. It is very well made, and I would expect to pay a lot more for a dress of this caliber. But it is nothing like the pictures! I would call it more of a dusty lilac than the pastel color seen in the photos on the website. It is also much longer than you would expect. I'm 5'5 with short legs so most Torrid dresses are fairly long on me, but the back of this dress goes to my ankles and the front goes to the middle of my shins. The waist line is a little high, but I think on more petite body shapes it is very flattering. The glitter on the skirt is much less subtle, it's more of a darker reflective silver than an iridescent silver like what is shown in the photos, but is more concentrated at the bottom of the skirt and more spread out toward the waist line, so it's not overwhelming. The skirt portion is pretty poofy, but there's 4 or 5 different layers of fabric, giving it a much more formal vibe. I would also recommend sizing down, a lot! I bought this dress for something specific and intentions of not wearing it for quite some time, so I sized down considerably and purchased a 12 (I'm currently an 18), but I just HAD to try it on when it came in the mail, and it fit! It's a little tight, of course, but I could wear this dress as is now and no one would think anything of it. The top is very stretchy without looking cheap. This dress wound up being more elegant and perfect for the occasion than what I was expecting to receive, and I am so happy with this purchase, but the photos and description on the website could use an update.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty color.... BUT I absolutely loved the color and the sparkles. I got this to wear for my bridal shower. But sadly I did return it due to the fact I'm 33 weeks pregnant, due to the tule on the bottom make you seem like twice as large. So I feel if it didn't have the tule on the bottom and dress would lay on the body much better. So for sure mixed feeling about the dress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from makes me look huge I love this dress, it's so pretty on the hanger. it is even more sparkly in person. however it is so puffy that it made me look 3 times as wide. I normally wear a 16 or 18 torrid dress. and have wide hips to begin with. I sent it back yesterday.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Quality, Weird Fit When I first saw this dress online, I was really excited as I like a dress with some shimmer. I ordered it immediately! It’s NOT what I expected, though. The quality of the dress is AMAZING, and I feel like it won’t fall apart after many wears, or tearing up the dance floor at a special event. Unfortunately, the waist is a bit high (I’m 5’2 and that NEVER happens). Additionally, there is a disappointing layer of tulle in the middle of all the layers that really poofs the dress out, which would be okay if it was a floor length dress/gown, but now it leaves the length at my mid-shin (again, I’m 5’2). I haven’t decided on if I will return or not, I may try to alter the dress to really fit me, but I can’t decide.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from READ THE REVIEWS! I bought this dress a few weeks ago for my engagement party , before reading the reviews.. I saw this dress and HAD TO HAVE IT. It is a beautiful dress but very much looked like a cupcake in it, I am 5’ 2” and round, lol it was tight around my breasts and started to poof out right under them and almost hit the ground on me, I was also looking for something shorter. I always slightly tweak my dresses to my liking by altering them, but be because this one was so expensive, and I live in Canada, I just sent it back, better safe than sorry. But colour and quality of dress was amazing and sparkle was truly beautiful, for sure a princess dress!
