Ivy City Co Review and Order Details

I ordered the below items on 1/27/2024 to my address in North Carolina (United States). I paid a total of $338.91 to Ivy City Co via PayPal. The charge appears on my credit card statement as “PAYPAL *IVY CITY CO”. View Order Confirmation 

1) Jogger Sweatpants

Brand Label: Ivy City Co

Color/Size/Cost: Sage / Large / $44

Country: Made in China

Material: 100% Cotton

Expectation: They are exactly what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality of the material is good, however, I think the design/construction is a bit off. There is something not quite right with how it fits. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and it fits one size too big (I ordered up purposefully for a baggier fit, but it isn’t very flattering). View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return these Ivy City Co joggers.

They aren’t quite the right fit. It is a size too big, and something about the way it is designed doesn’t work well with my body. The front has more fabric than the back (it poofs out from the side), which is the opposite of what you want. When I squat or move around, the back feels like it’s sliding down or being pulled toward the front. This could be due to the oversized fit I chose or the fact that I am not used to joggers that aren’t high-waisted. The waistband is also a bit itchy and uncomfortable. One good thing is that the main material of the joggers is feels soft and is thick!

2) Arianna Jumpsuit

Brand Label: Ivy City Co

Color/Size/Cost: Cream / Medium / $108

Country: Made in China

Material: 100% Cotton

Expectation: It is not what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance. The material looks/feels thinner and wrinklier in person. In the product image, the material looks entirely different.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is decent. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and it fits well. View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Ivy City Co jumpsuit.

Let me be clear, I like this jumpsuit. It fits well, feels comfortable, is double-layered (not see-through), and I LOVE the poofy sleeves. With that being said, this is something I feel like I could find at Target. I would never dream of paying $108 for this. If this were made of organic cotton or recycled materials, now that would be a different story.

3) Sicily Dress – Champagne Lining

Brand Label: Ivy City Co

Color/Size/Cost: Champagne / Small / $164

Country: Made in China

Material: 100% Polyester

Expectation: It is exactly what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality of the various materials is okay (nothing special or amazing), but the overall design and construction are very detailed/intricate. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and it fits well (the waist is a bit snug but I would not size up). View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Ivy City Co dress.

As with the above jumpsuit, I like this dress. It is STUNNING to look at, extremely flattering to my figure, and the layering and details are gorgeous. It has an inner lining, a middle floral mesh layer, and an outer embroidered mesh layer. The few negatives are that it feels itchy (especially in the arms where there isn’t an inner lining), and the buttons on the cuffs easily pop open since the button holes are embroidered (they don’t fit snugly around the button).

While the materials themselves aren’t premium, the dress is a showstopper! I could see someone happily paying $164 for this dress to wear to an event. For myself, however, I am not willing to feel itchy if I am going to pay that much. When I pulled it out of the bag, my first thought was how surprisingly cheap/rough the materials felt.

Do I Recommend This Shop?

Based on my experience so far, they are a legitimate shop. I paid for my items, received them within the estimated time frame, was approved for a return, and mailed the return package. I am waiting for the refund.

With that being said, assuming my refund goes through, I would give this shop another try.

My order arrived in under a week, the return process is simple, and I like aspects of each item in my order. The overall quality of their clothing seems decent, and I am very impressed with the overall look and craftsmanship of the Sicily dress in particular.

The major negative is that the prices seem STEEP. The jumpsuit is painfully overpriced, and the Sicily dress also feels a bit overpriced considering how cheap the materials feel. Additionally, all of their sale items are final, which is unfortunate. 

Overall, I had a decent experience, but they are pricey (and I’m not sure that it’s justified). But, I would be willing to try again but ONLY for their specialty dresses. I am convinced I could find one that was more comfortable and met my needs since they carry a wide range of styles.

To wrap up this post, regardless of my experience, be sure to read as many customer reviews as possible. If you found this post helpful in your search for Ivy City Co reviews, please consider sharing and commenting (via Reddit) below. Have a great day!
