"This dress is RIDICULOUSLY gorgeous in person. Seriously. IGIGI’s clothes are always beautifully made, and while I’ve found that I’ve had some sizing issues in the past, when it works it WORKS. This dress is an absolute case-in-point. I love the empire waist, which for once doesn’t make me look ridiculously top-heavy OR pregnant!
The silhouette – combined with the wide neckline and embroidered skirt – actually reminds me of a Regency period gown. The bodice is ruched around the bust and showcases one’s cleavage to devastating effect. The straps are wide enough to hide your bra. The skirt is something else. The underskirt is made of IGIGI’s customary jersey and isn’t gathered, so you don’t have an excess of fabric sitting around your middle. The overskirt is made of a soft netting and it slightly gathered, giving it a lovely soft drape. The embroidery is heavy with beading, and culminates in a GORGEOUS scalloped hem.
All in all I’d say this is one of the most perfect “formal” dresses I’ve seen. It’s elegant, easy to wear, travels well (great for interstate weddings!) and I can’t WAIT for more opportunities to bring it out."
