Igigi By Yuliya Raquel

16 Apr

Igigi is a brand that I have lusted after from afar for far too long. My beautiful friends Caroline and Mhairi have proven just how good Igigi looks on a variety of beautiful bodies, and I wanted in on the action! Not only that, but on my better days I fancy myself to have a similar body shape to their model Denise Bidot, and so I figured it would be a perfect brand for me.

Recently, I was offered the chance to try an Igigi dress from their new collection ‘Spring Awakening’, and I pretty much knew straight away which dress I would be trying…


The Ariadna. The stretchy top half looked bust friendly and the silky skirt was stunning.
I decided on this dress in a US size 14/16 and impatiently waited for it to arrive!

It wasn’t long before the dress was in my possession, and it was even better than I could have imagined! Firstly, it was expertly packaged and arrived completely uncreased. The colours popped, and the material felt heavy and luxurious.


The bust fit me perfectly without stretching too thin or pulling down too low.


I would of course add some sort of belt to this, especially as it didn’t completely fit to my waist, however, the black line under the bust does help give the illusion of a nipped in waist.


The dress is fully lined with a stretchy heavy material that stops the silk becoming static and clinging whilst helping smooth out lumps and bumps.


The straps are nice and thick, meaning that they concealed my bra straps, and didn’t dig into my shoulders.


My first experience of Igigi has been flawless! I can’t wait for a nice summer wedding to wear this dress at, or maybe just a pub garden! The colours are beautiful, the fit is as fabulous and I’m very happy with my new dress.

Are you a fan of Igigi? What do you have your eye on from the new collection?

    The print is so pretty on this dress, and the lining looks good too. So often I find that the lining is in such a rubbish fabric, or seems about two sizes smaller than it should be and can ruin the look. Gorgeous.

    For a moment I thought the model _was_ you, with slightly different hair and makeup than ususal. :-) Very nice dress!

    Just a word of caution on this line I have bought several items from them for my wife who is a petite plus; most items are cut for taller women. My wife being under 5 feet most pants and tops are simply too long. While the length may be altered, the inseam and crotch still do not make a good fit.

    It’s challenging finding her great apparel that fits just right. Same with lingerie- most plus sizes are for women of more average height. May I suggest a column with tips for women like my wife?

    Enjoy the blog and have learned a lot! Thank you!

    I want that dress so bad! I’ve always told myself that when I marry into a royal family, that’s all I will wear. It looks great on you. Just beautiful.

    That dress looks stunning on you!

    I have a couple of Igigi dresses that I wear for work, and i just recently purchased this gorgeous dress for a special occassion later this year: http://www.igigi.com/plus-size-dresses/plus-size-evening-dress/phyllis-maxi-dress.html
    It is too long on me (I’m only 5ft 5) so I will need to find a tailor to shorten it.
    The thing I love about Igigi is the quality of the fabric/sewing/design, the pear/hourglass friendly styles with high waists and their quick delivery times. OK, so that’s more than one thing! Basically, if I could marry a shop, I would marry Igigi.

    It’s stunning! I had a look at their collection and there are some really pretty pieces that I’d looove to have, but the price is a bit steep. I’d have to persuade my husband a bit for this, would love to own one of their wrap dress :) Thanks for recommendation! Love your blog by the way, really inspiring :) x
