"I was sent by Linda Koch of Big Girl’s Paradise on November 10th to
London, UK to judge the MISS BBW INTERNATIONAL Beauty contest which was
being filmed by the BBC for their documentary Britain’s Biggest Beautys.
The gown was clearly made with great care and quality.I like how the design brought attention to the décolleté with generous fabric flowing below the waist. I especially loved the beaded tulle fabric overlay, as the quality was evident in its weight as well as its design and attention to detail. I am less busty so needed some padding to fill out the cups. I loved the color as it felt very fall and the gold beaded fabric gave it that dressy look I adore. Only down side was it’s length. I’m 5’8 and even with heels it was quite long, but I have had so many experiences with dresses being too short that I hesitate to complain about length.
I think this design works best for my Figure 8 shape. And I am a fan of IGIGI because Yuliya takes all body types into consideration and works to flatter all figures while addressing current fashion, using gorgeous colors and high quality materials. I have had the great fortune to meet Yuliya in person and so enjoyed her company. She is a delight as are her designs!
Some of the compliments I received were, -“Stunning lady, stunning dress (and you should see the embroidery work on the dress, it is amazing!!)”
“La robe est magnifique!” “Their stuff is so beautiful!”
“Princess of the night...”
“ Tu es magnifique Velvet comme toujours et toujours ton sourire merveilleux !
“U are the cutest thing!!! Love Igigi dresses I have their pencil skirt!!!”
“Beautiful dress, beautiful lady!”
“I do like that dress! Don't know where I'd wear it, but it’s pretty.”
“This gown is so gorgeous! "
