"I am such a fan of the IGIGI line. The garments are always well-constructed and incredibly flattering. I am fortunate to have many IGIGI dresses in my closet because once you find a winner, you tend to trust that store to deliver beautiful dresses.
Right away, my eyes were drawn to the Bardot dress. I love that it’s almost like a little black dress, but then has a splash of unexpected scarlet hombre detail, going from darkest to brightest at the bottom.
The dress is fully lined and has a nice full skirt. The fabric of the skirt is more sheer, almost like a crinkled chiffon, although it’s much thicker than a chiffon. The top portion of the dress is a different fabric, more of a stretchy material that is very comfortable and leaves you free to move your arms around (I hate it when dresses make you feel constricted). You can see that I’ve pushed up the three-quarter length sleeves for this photo and it’s very comfortable. The high waistband is also this stretchy material so it sits very flattering.
This is another of those dresses that seems impossible to wrinkle, so I plan on taking it with me on our next trip to Mexico. While I’m retired now, this dress has a modest neckline that would be totally appropriate in an office setting or at an event where you didn’t want to show off the girls.
I was fortunate enough to visit the San Francisco design house during our trip in June 2010 and got to see their quality assurance and incredible design process up close. It was pretty impressive! "
"I first fell in love with the Tropical Beauty dress when I saw it online at the IGIGI web site. I really wanted that one! The colors are so lovely. It really lives up to its name "Tropical Beauty". I felt it would be perfect for our vacation to Hawaii. We go out for supper on Valentine’s Day on Maui at Ruth Chris and IGIGI’s Tropical Beauty gown would be awesome for that special occasion.
When the dress came, it fit like a glove, but was a tad too long. My sister quickly hemmed it so it hung perfectly over the small gold heels I wore with it. I also got a purple bra and panties for my wonderful new dress. The colors blended perfectly with the straps on the dress, and I didn’t worry about anything showing around the bra-friendly straps. In my jewelry box awaited my druzzy necklace, which looked like it was made for the dress. The gown was wonderfully comfortable. That is so unlike normally wearing dress clothes that you can’t wait to get out of.
I was sorry at the end of the evening to have to take it off. I was told several times at the Weetacon style show that I looked beautiful and one guy even said “stunning”. That’s quite a compliment for a 64-year-old lady. I can’t thank Yuliya enough for this lovely creation that will join the other IGIGI clothing in my closet. I know there will be more. "
