Special Occasions Lilac Purple Ponte Shimmer Midi Dress is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 23.
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 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 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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Silver Sparkle with a Not so Flattering Cut I wanted to love this, and I do live the color, the lilac looks amazing. The tulle is definitely covered in silver sparkle (not a bad thing, just not quite shown in the pictures). The top material is soft and comfortable. The cut is unfortunately why I am returning, It poofs out at the bottom of your chest, similar to a cupcake style ballgown, if was full length would definitely be big enough to be a ballgown. I think you need a specific silhouette to make this look flattering, but if you have it, it would be stunning, just sadly that is not the case for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT AS PICTURED The skirt section does not start at the waist (as shown), but instead starts right under the bust, or in my case, on my bust. The skirt is very full; I like full skirts, but this is comically full. These things couple to make a dress that is not flattering on fuller/larger figures. The glitter is not subtle; it is aggressive and cheaply falls off the fabric to make a mess. And then there's the color... It's not lilac. I think its closer to a taupe that got washed with some purple fabric. My SO asked, "I thought you ordered something purple?" However. This dress is very well made, and the length is wonderful. That's the only reason I'm giving 2 stars instead of 1.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Pretty, But VERY Unflattering! Was so excited to get this in today!! Got home, tried it on....I look like I'm about 3/4 times bigger in this dress. It is so unflattering! It is too full, and the cut makes it look like I'm, not only huge, but pregnant. I really wanted to love this dress, but it doesn't seem made for *actual* plus size gals. Very unflattering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unflattering I was extremely excited when I purchased this dress but very worried there was no photo with it on an actual model. However, I still purchased it. I just received it and will unfortunately be returning it. Although it is "pretty on paper" it is extremely unflattering. If you have any hips or curves this is not the dress for you. It hit in all the wrong places and had so many layers underneath I feel like it made me appear wider than my actual body is. Super disappointed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible dress! It looks nothing like the picture! It's heavy, extremely unflattering, and it gets glitter EVERYWHERE just by touching it. It's a waste of money!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great dress too big!!! I waited a month to receive what I thought would be a beautiful dress. If you want to feel like a fairy... order it! Also order a size down. I was drowning in it. The glitter comes off and I had to send it back. They should make it like the frozen dress they designed several years back.
