IGIGI - Review & Giveaway



I'm not skinny, but that doesn't mean I don't like to wear clothes that make me feel good about myself. Being plus size doesn't mean being frumpy. IGIGI caters to plus size women, with a mission to transform with world's form of beauty with smart, stylish, and sophisticated plus size clothing collections for women in sizes 12-32.



IGIGI was founded in 2000 by Yuliya Raquel, a designer who knew that there was a void in the plus size apparel market that needed to be filled. IGIGI introduces most of its styles in very limited quantities to keep the collections exclusive. Once it is sold out, it will not be brought back exactly as is. All designs are proudly made in the USA.



Clothes shopping for me is usually a disaster. Finding outfits that fit my body nicely and designs that are stylish is almost impossible. When I do find that one piece that fits me just right, it's a eureka moment. I received the Oasis Cropped Pants in Black and had a rare Eureka! moment when I put them on. They fit me so well and even gave me a slimming effect. I've found that they can be dressed up with a blouse or dressed down with a tshirt. My main trouble spot is my stomach and sometimes pants can make it bulge even more. I did not have this problem with the Oasis Cropped Pants. These pants are a classic piece that are comfortable and stylish.

These particular pants are to be washed in cold water or dry cleaned. I've washed them a couple of times now and have found no shrinkage. They do need to be hung up soon after to keep from wrinkling.



It's refreshing to find a company that caters to plus size women in a way that makes them feel confident and proud of who they are. Even if you're not a plus size women, IGIGI has a nice selection of jewelry and accessories that are pretty and affordable.

I favorite dress is the
Iris Maxi Dress http://www.igigi.com/fast-fashion-limited-collection/iris-maxi-dress.html

Although, I'm really loving the neckline on the Riviera Maxi Dress...if only the skirt came in the same print as the Iris, it would be PERFECT! http://www.igigi.com/fast-fashion-limited-collection/riviera-maxi-dress.html

I'm a Burlesque Comedian and am onstage doing comedy but looking gorgeous while being funny is important to me! I consider myself a role model ( roll model, even!!) for confident women who aren't afraid to be bold in a bigger body! I'd choose the Estrella Gown - it is stunning and would look amazing in any theatrical performance!

Being a woman who has confidence in herself is important. That is why, I wear things that make me feel good when I walk into a room. It also helps that when I wear IGIGI clothes, people flock to me like a moth to the flame! Good thing I know when to turn up the flame!

I'd choose the Riveria Maxi Dress!
