IGIGI: Beautiful Clothes for Curvy Women: Review & Giveaway

Like I've mentioned previosly, I'm always on the lookout for beautiful, stylish clothes. But it can sometimes be a bit difficult being a curvy momma.

I was happy to team up with IGIGI, and try out one of their beautifully limited items of clothing. 
Igigi, is a fashion line made in San Francisco, CA and designed by Yuliya Raquel.  The best thing is that this line caters to women ranging from size 12-32.
One of my favorite items of clothing is a good little black dress, so I chose...
The Francesca dress in black in a size 12
I simply LOVE this dress!

I feel it's a timeless and seasonless piece.  I can wear it now or one year from now and it'll still look fabulous.  The dress can be worn for so many different occasions.  All you need to do is add the right shoes, purse, accesories and voila, it's a totally different dress.  This dress can also be worn off-the-shoulder, which makes it even more versatile.  I would so wear this for dinner and a movie with the hubby. 

The material is soft on the skin and does not cling to the body.  I can wear it with or without shapewear because the dress alone hides all  of my tiny imperfections.  I'm 5'6", so I found the dress just a tad bit too long for my taste, but regardless it's fabulous.  I chose the dress in black, because I'm just obssesed with the color and because it makes you look slimmer.  But, the dress is also available in royal color and it just happens to be on sale!  Depending on one's budget, some might find this dress a bit pricey but the use that someone could get out of the dress will seriously outweigh the price.

I'll definitely be wearing this dress for my birthday, the holidays, date-night and many ocassions more!

The most versatile little black dress! Add a belt and this basic little black dress goes from casual to chic in an instant.



Dress Details {from the site}
  • On or off-shoulder neckline
  • Draped surplice bodice
  • Empire waist
  • 3/4 length sleeves
  • Just-below-the-knee flared skirt
  • Fully lined
  • Shoulder to Hem Length: 41"-44"
  • Material: Poly/Elastane
  • Care: Dry Clean only


Not sure about buying clothes online because you can never be sure how they'll look? Don't worry, IGIGI helps you choose!

I was worried about not being able to try on the dress before buying it, but IGIGI online has a fabulous online tool called the Shape Stylist Calculator that helps you find out what body type you are.  Then you can just choose the dresses that fit your specific body type.


If you're still looking for a great dress or accesories for the holidays with the family, a work party, an anniversary dinner or any occasion that you wish to feel like a million bucks then check out the whole IGIGI line over at http://www.igigi.com/, if not leave the page open on the hubby's computer so he knows what to get for you for Christmas :-)



Because I'm such an awesome model-NOT- here is another pic for your viewing pleasure. 
Make sure to visit http://www.igigi.com/ because from now until December 24th there is a Different Special Style of the day featured at a discounted price!
