Kari takes a chance on the Skye dress

DISCLAIMER: I received the Skye dress for free in exchange for an honest review of the garment.

Over the years, I have heard so many Weetacon friends gush about how amazing IGIGI is, and I’ve seen first hand how gorgeous the dresses are. But every time I would think about ordering one, a little voice in the back of my head would whisper “Will it fit YOU?” I haven’t worn a dress in years, never being satisfied with the way department store plus size dresess look and fit.  Either things were designed with a potato sack in mind, or tacky looking.

kariigigi2This March, I had the opportunity to wear an IGIGI dress during the fashion show at Weetacon.  I was quite nervous as the dress was picked out by another person, but after trying the dress on, I fell in love with IGIGI.

The first thing that was so surprising to me, was the sizing.  Now, I’m usually a size 22/24 and this dress was a 18/20 and it fit amazingly! The dress came out of the garment bag without wrinkles, and I was very surprised to learn that the dress was lined. This was no ordinary dress! I was apprehensive of the stretchy poly material, but IGIGI did not let me down.

The dress fits like a dream. The lining makes it not as clingy and helps smooth out bumps.  The cut of the dress takes into consideration bigger girl curves and works with them instead of hiding them. The neckline is nice, and shows cleavage without giving a peep show. All in all, it’s an awesome dress!

I am so happy with my dress and IGIGI!  Go, get yourself an IGIGI dress! It WILL fit you and you will love it!

    All it takes to make a convert is to get a person into their clothes, doesn’t it?

    I’ve been looking at the Ishiko Top in Teal. I love the color combination, but I wonder about how low cut it is. Taking that in to consideration, I’d probably wear this out for drinks with jeans, or with a camisole to work.

  • Mary said:

    Yay! I love all my Igigi clothes. For a dress, I’d choose the Callie dress to wear on a romantic night out with Joe. I might even wear it to work! However, I’m really lusting after the Ishiko top in raspberry rose.

  • Tara said:

    Glad you found IGIGI and dress you liked.
    I would wear the Jacqueline 2in1 Dress in Jade. Great dress for either work or works-drinks.

    P.S. I already have 1 IGIGI dress I bought for BiL’s wedding last year.

    I had this dress on my list for the fashion show but was a bit leery because I almost never wear prints. You and Fred looked drop dead gorgeous and sexy in this dress, it convinced me to try prints.

    I’ve got a new position at work with a lot more meetings and would love the Jacqueline 2-in-1 Dress in Jade.

    Hey girl, hey! So glad you love this dress… I SO LOVE THIS DRESS! It looked amazing on both you and fredlet and you two could not be shaped any more differently. Fabulous.
    I love IGIGI and am SO loving the Margaux Dress. MROW!

  • lisa-marie said:

    That dress looked amazing on you! I loved the fit and the print and you totally rocked it! Right now I love the Doris 2-in-one dress – so cute and it would be perfect for work or play!

  • Aimee said:

    These colors are great with your hair. I love the Riley dress red and polka dotty, yum!

  • Lisa K. said:

    wow this is hot!
    perfect work/date dress.
    You look great in this!!!!!!!!!

  • Jaime Mc. said:

    Very cute dress, looks good on a woman with curves for sure. I am personally looking for a dress for my wedding, I am in love with the Celine Wedding Gown, so simple yet so elegant.

  • Cary W. said:

    That dress fits great and looks classy! Igigi dresses always look classy. 🙂

    I’d pick the Milan Plus Size Dress in Royal to wear to a fall wedding, plus after the wedding I could wear it to work. It seems like a versitile dress.

  • Jennifer N. said:

    You look pretty! My favorite dress for a night out is the Leigh Lace Dress in Black Iris. I think it’s gorgeous and would love to own it someday!

  • Bobbie-Jo said:

    Glad that you found a dress you like/want to wear. I’m a recent convert to dresses myself so my wardrobe is seriously lacking in the dress dept, I would love to fill it out with the Riley or Doris dress!

  • Eilidh said:

    That dress looks amazing on you! Igigi just knows how to dress women. I love the Francesca dress. I think it’s just the perfect LBD and one that would be great for evenings out to the movies or get togethers with friends. I think it would be so versatile and easily dressed up or down according to the occasion.

  • Corinna said:

    You look fabulous in that dress! Excellent choice.

  • Natasha K said:

    Cute! I am really loving the Katie dress. I think it could work great for a night out, or even to work during the warmer months.

  • tona said:

    Thank you for your review! I can relate to the trepidation of ordering clothing online. The hand-wringing questions, ‘will it fit?’, ‘will it be worth it?’, even if you’ve ordered from the same place before. It’s reassuring to see that Igigi has good, consistent, quality clothing!

    My pick: Aubriella, for my friend’s concert performance!

  • Suzy Smith said:

    You look gorgeous in that dress!

    I really want the Stella for our vow renewal.

  • Beth Tanner said:

    You totally rocked that dress! (And I’m so glad you liked it!)

    I’d love the Michaela curvy pencil skirt – I’d like to wear more skirts to work!

  • Amber said:

    Ahhhh this dress is amazing! In my experience with igigi, you definitely have to size down, so i’m not surprised you did!

    I’ve got a hankering for the Rachelle Lace Dress in Black/Rouge! It’d go perfect with my hair for a birthday dinner! 🙂

  • Sarah said:

    the shape of the dress makes your curves look so fierce! i’m loving the Thalia Dress, would love to wear it out for a night on the town with friends!

  • Wendy said:

    I love the pattern on the dress, and you’re wearing it so well!

    I want the Versailles dress to wear to a work conference where I have to be a little dressed up but want to be springy/summery, too!
