"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. "
"My son's wedding Sept 1st, 2012. My seamstress hemmed this dress for me and was amazed at how great the fabric was to work with. The dress fit perfectly except for the length (I'm short) and because it was cool, I added a longer top than the little bolero that came with it. I receieved a lot of compliments on both the fit, style and colour on me. Igigi is the best, quick delivery and quality of clothing is awesome. It is my go to place for special occassion clothes."
"I wore my maxi dress in my wedding. Everybody loved the colors on me. The dress is very comfortable: great fabric easy to get altered if needed. You can wear it at any type of occasion that requires you to dress to impress. I just love the dress."
"I received so many compliments on this dress that I wore to a wedding in South Africa. It flowed, accentuated my curves and personality! "
"I work on a cruise ship, so every now and then I get to uses long gowns. This dress in special i bought it for a friend´s wedding.
I love the dress, but it is too big on the breast area. it does not t feel like it was a good finish in that area cause even when its big the inner stitches bend and go outside. I had to be constantly fixing it.
On the other hand I had nothing but compliments and the fabric falls so nicely that you cannot help but twirl like a little girl.
"I wanted a beautiful long dress with vibrant colors, and I found this dress! It was perfect for my engagement photo shoot. The dress was easy to move in and was perfect to wear to the beach. I had lots of comments about how beautiful I looked wearing the dress and I love how you could dress it up or make it casual. Pair it with a comfortable pair of sandals and you are ready for a warm sunny day!"
"Such a lovely dress. Had it on my birthday party and got lots of compliments. Hope to find an occasion soon again, so I can wear it one more time"
"I bought this dress for the first communion of my daughter and LOVE it! It fits like it is made to measure for me and flatters my curves in a perfect way. As I tried it on for the first time all hubby could say was "WOW!!!" This is by far my most favourite dress, the first one from IGIGI and won't for sure be my last I Love the Way IGIGI enhances female curves and makes them drop dead GORGEOUS and SEXY! "
"This dress was an absolute beautiful dress. I was the queen of the night at my son's 25th birthday party. It was a huge lavish event where there were hundreds of guests, and I got nonstop compliments about this dress and my entire outfit. The dress fit like a glove, and I had it a little hemmed from the bottom because it was a tad too long. I wore a kitten heal about 1.5 to 2 inches from Christian Louboutin and just danced the night away, flowing fabulously through the night with my enchanting gown.
There were a lot of younger girls there, much more fit, and simply gorgeous, but they all agreed that I won the "fashion Oscar" for the night! I couldn't be more happier with this purchase and cannot wait to wear it again to a friend's daughter's wedding! I'm part of a demographic here where fashion is everything, and I was so happy to abide 100% by that rule.
Thank you IGIGI for such wonderful creations, I am looking forward to purchasing my next dress(es) from you very soon. Please come out weekly with new designs and dress, I always look on your site weekly for the newest and hottest thing. You guys give plus size women something exquisite to wear and we all thank you so much! "
"I purchased this dress July 2013 to attend a summer wedding in Eugene, OR. I wanted to wear a spectacular, stand-out dress for this particular event, and I found it in this dress! I don't normally go with so much color, but I thought what the heck, I'll give it a shot! Per other reviewers, I ordered one size down (I'm normally an 18/20 and ordered the 14/16). It fit great! The length was a bit too long, so I did take it to a seamstress for hemming and the length grazed perfectly on top of my gold, strappy sandals.
The dress is perfectly snug, not uncomfortable with easy movement, and it was very slenderizing. I received many, many compliments and felt beautiful wearing it. I love the way IGIGI knows how to design for plus size beauties. The right amount of skin to show in the back, solid straps on the dresses for good support, the way the dresses are structured for slimming.
Seriously great products (I own about 10 IGIGI dresses/suits). Love you IGIGI!!"
"I was lucky enough to get this after winning a raffle at "Curvy Girls Who Brunch" event! I got it just in time to wear to a work event, but due to chaos, I only had pics sitting down! I wore it a 2nd time to a trunk show/shopping event, and had to get a full length shot to share! Lovely model Danielle Line is in the pic with me!
Everything about this dress is luxury! The feel, rich colors, lining, fabric. I couldn't have been happier when I put it on. I got a 14/16 and glad I did, I often get 12's in IGIGI dresses, but I have a large bust, and this was perfect! My waist was visible, the cut flattered, and although I like it w/out the included shrug, in the photo I have it on. The length was PERFECT. I like my maxi's to hit and drag on the floor a bit, and this was perfect and that's hard to find for me!
Everyone loved the dress and commented and complimented from the moment I walked in! I had to do a few twirls, I really felt beautiful! I hadn't really done much w/ hair or makeup, I felt the dress really was the star of my look! I felt amazing!
I plan on wearing this again this summer. I have many IGIGI dresses I love, but this one is my current fave! I love IGIGI because you get it!"
"I absolutely love this dress, period. The occasion, a wedding at Lacuna Lofts in Chicago, IL. I love the sway of the fabric, the ease of wear and the eye catching colors.
I am an IGIGI fan simply because it works and flatters for that special occasion. Love it, absolutely the best in plus size fashion. "
"I got this absolutely stunning gown to wear a friend's summer wedding that was indoor/outdoor.
From the moment I tried it on, it was perfect! I wear a 18/20 in most sizes, but following IGIGI's sizing chart, I ordered a 14/16 and it fit like a charm!! I am 5'9'' and the length was spot on with a pair of 2-inch heels, but shorter girls will want to get it hemmed up.
I loved the way I felt to wear, from posing for pictures to dancing the night away! The skirt is very big and twirls around you delightfully as you dance. Everyone at the wedding adored this gown. I just wish I had more occasions upon which to wear it! "
"When I find out that my fiance was the best man for his brother's wedding,I knew I needed to look as good as he was going to look in his tux. I knew IGIGI made beautiful dresses, and when I saw this online, I knew this was the dress for me. This is the first dress I've worn since high school, and I felt like it was prom all over again. I felt beautiful in this dress."
