Cari is our resident local karaoke expert and has been with Weetacon since the first year. She jumped at a chance to review some Igigi garments and also, field tested them by working our karaoke party in her Masterpiece top that very night.
I received many compliments on this top but I have to say, it fell outside of my comfort zone.
The lace is very beautiful and flattering, but the cross-over front just didn’t sit right. I tried it straight across the left breast, completely covering the left breast and completely under. Friends say it looked best under, but to me, the style looks lopsided. I really liked the v-neck line but the length of the body was just a bit too short and snug: It cuts off across the most unflattering area of the belly and butt.
Really, I know I will wear it often because of the numerous compliments–I just need to get used cross-over front.
When I was first trying on the Montparnasse dress, I was thinking oh good, it fits nicely. Then I tied the belt and BAM! With my hour-glass figure, the belt instantly took this dress from a 6 to a 9.5!
I felt very slim.The nice fabrics and colors are extremely flattering for my skin/hair tones.
The cuffs on the sleeve have elastic in them which looks very nice and is practical, but could have had a little more give. I found that the garment was slightly restricting across the shoulders, but a little more give in the cuff would have cured that. Unfortunately the collar is not my liking: it just doesn’t lay right but my husband said “No one’s eyes are going to get as far up as the collar.” I guess he thought it was pretty flattering on my figure too!
The Masterpiece top was made for me! It absolutely screams my name.
The gathered waist line and flowing bottom are so flattering on my hour-glass figure. I love the sleeve length, the color (would love this same top in other colors), the fabric, the length, the two-toned print.
The only thing I would change about this top is the shoulders: I wish the neckline covered the bra straps. A couple more inches of black fabric on each shoulder would make this the perfect top.
I feel absolutely beautiful in this top. My teenage daughter’s guy friends commented: “Brittany’s hot mom is here.”
I don’t care who you are… that feels great!
