Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes me feel like a princess I saw this dress online and immediately thought it was beautiful. It makes me feel like a princess,. The skirt is especially gorgeous. I really do not know where I will wear this dress as it is fancier than it looks in the photos, but it truly is stunning. I like that it fits me well, is very comfortable and I can wear a supportive bra with it because of the thick straps. Still, the colour purple is very light and can be mistaken for white fairly easily. For this reason, I would not wear this dress to a wedding. But, I feel like if I was 17 again and going to my high school prom, this would be the perfect choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy sugarplum princess vibes! I LOVE this dress...it is longer than I hoped for ( I am 5' 5") and the front comes just a couple inches above my ankles...but I love it nontheless! I love purple and this is a beautiful soft lilac with ombre silver glitter skirt, it is very difficult to get a photo with the true color of it (maybe if I had gone outside) the first color I find closer to the purple it is..the 2nd was with a flash and everything went wonky. Fit: I am a size 0/1 at Torrid, pear/hourglass shaped - I am a 36/38 D and a size 14/16 on the bottom...based on reviews I ordered this dress in a size 12 and it fits me perfectly (minus being longer than I'd hoped for..short girl problems!)! On sale and with coupons it is absolutely worth it. Made well. Yes glitter can get everywhere - just turn it inside out when hanging and it won't get glitter on other items.

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.
