Hi! I don’t have a comparison picture of ivory and white for you, but here I am in the sample of my ivory Mori Lee dress. I’m pale/ruddy, so I knew that I wanted an ivory dress (I look three days dead in white), but the ivory doesn’t look yellowy or brownish at all. They have a champagne color which is closer to a tawny/golden color. I didn’t try on any ML in white, but from my own I would say that their white is probably a bright winter white, and their ivory’s just a bit softer. Hope this helps!

The ivory doesnt look dirty. My dress was an ivory mori lee. The best thing you can do is go into the store to look at the two colors in person but I believe the ivory is generally more flattering than white

I ordered my Mori Lee in white, but the sample I tried on was Ivory and it didn’t look dirty to me at all. I’d go to a dress shop to compare.

I tried mine on in ivory and (accidentally!) ordered it in white–I didn’t notice the difference until I went in for alterations.

Here was the sample in ivory:

And my dress in white:

Honestly, it looked fine either way! I am super pale and was nervous about being washed out, but the white ended up being great.

I ordered a Mori Lee in ivory.  I personally can’t stand the white white gown, so ivory seems easier on the eye.  🙂

Both like the PPs said, check out both colors (doesn’t have to be same style) but to compare.

I wore Mori Lee ivory and LOVED the color. I am pale so I think it worked better with my skin.

Mine’s Mori Lee Blu and it’s white, like WHITE white. Very white. and as you can see in the pic, I’m pretty pale normally but had a decent tan when I tried the sample on. But I think my dark hair helps from keeping me from getting too washed out in it.

I have a Mori Lee in Ivory. It’s pretty close to white and is very pretty. It’s not the yellowish ivory everyone associates “ivory” with. Here is what mine looks like. I would almost call it a diamond white.

I’m Asian and I picked an Ivory Mori Lee.  

 

This sample is in white… a little too bright for me.  Sorry for the sideways pic.
