I ordered the Secret Muse Dress to wear to the broadway show Wicked, because of the green through the bottom of the dress. I ordered it yesterday afternoon and it was on my desk before I arrived at work this morning. (AMAZING!) I tried it on and it was like I was an instant princess! I ordered the 18/20 and the fit was PERFECT! If you follow the sizing chart, there are no sizing issues! This dress may be called the Secret Muse, but it will be no secret where I bought it and how I feel in it! I LOVE IT!!!! (Can you make one in every color, so I can wear a different one every day of the week?!)

I didn't know how to put a photo on the website reviews, so I'm emailing it to you.
I thought you might like to see "Janet" in action in real life. A dress that can make a 70 year old widow feel attractive is a marvelous thing. My particular shape makes wearing dresses almost impossible. Or so I thought until I discovered Igigi by Yuliya Raquel.
I wore Janet to a fundraising event for our local symphony. The theme for the event was Hollywood Oscar winning musicals. Each table chooses a film and decorates their table and wears costumes that depict a scene from that movie. Our group chose the scene at Royal Ascot from the film "My Fair Lady" in which everyone wore black and white--and very large hats! I'm telling you this to explain the huge hat I'm wearing with the dress. Janet was perfect! (I actually loved the hat, too!) I plan to wear Janet again next week to another fundraiser. It is a black tie optional dinner dance--no hat this time.
The highest compliment I can give your designs is that, when I showed her your website, my size 10 friend was terribly disappointed that she couldn't order any in her size. That never happens!
I hope that my third order, Katelyn, arrives before the high tea I'm attending on the 29th of April. I'm pretty confident it will. Your customer service has been great, too.

I wanted to write and thank you so much for the beautiful dress you provided on your website. I added some of my own touches and changed it a bit but it was because of you that I felt like a beautiful bride on my wedding day!
See attached for pics!
Thanks so much!!!
I wore my dress for the second time tonight. I got so many compliments and feel beautiful in it.
There's nothing that I don't love about this dress. This is the Rebecca gown in black. I thought you'd like to see these.
I'm in love with this dress.
Wow Wow WOW!!!!! How did it take me so long to find your company! Ordered on Wednesday, received on Thursday (less than 24 hours)! The quality and fit are amazing!
I thought I spent too much, intending to return one of the 3 dresses ordered, but they are all terrific, look great, feel great, and are the basis for a "newer" wardrobe! Utilized your
online shape/fit section and it really helped.
The quality of workmanship is exemplary and well worth the money spent. I can hardly wait until your new line arrives.........I will be first in line to buy!
Thank you again for your great service and terrific product. Forget Nordstroms, I'm a IGIGI girl now!
Thanks Igigi... for another fabulous dress I love the cut, color, fabric and of course the flutter hem it adds to the feminine quality of the dress, keep up the good work.
Rose Reid, Holladay , Utah
Thank you so much for the beautiful dresses. I am so very happy I ordered them and will continue to make purchases at IGIGI.
So many people loved and complimented the dresses. I am attaching a few pictures from my wedding day. I wore two dresses from IGIGI.
Thank you again!

To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing this note just to say a personal thank you to everyone who works at IGIGI to make what I believe to be the first truly fashionable and contemporary clothing for women of plus size. I have been overweight my entire life, in fact I was 5'8" at a size 24 my freshman year of high school. So needless to say I have been struggling with my weight for the majority of my life. I'm 37 years old now. I'm not quite sure how I stumbled upon my your website for the first time, but I've just ordered my third dress. The Katelyn dress in blue and turquoise.
The dresses are appropriate yet sexy, with sleeves available for those who don't want to display upper arms, and colors and silhouettes that are flattering and yet don't show off too much skin. I just can't say enough about how great I think these clothes are. I'd truly like to see more separates available in the future. I am also consistently impressed at the prices of your items because it makes them available to people who might not otherwise be able to afford quality attractive clothing.
Please keep doing what you're doing. I'm currently on Permanent Disability and therefore I have a limited budget and so I can only buy things when money is available, but whenever I have any extra monies, I will buy another dress by IGIGI.
Thanks again for making this plus size women feel like a Lady!
As a plus size woman invited to my first Black Tie Gala Event, I was in a panic about what to wear. Then I discovered IGIGI online & immediately found a dress I loved. It shipped the next day and arrived the following day. The dress fits perfectly, is of good quality & I love it!!
As a first-time customer, I will definitely be doing business with you again!
I noticed that the dress that i purchased was no longer available (Rainforest Paradise Maxi Dress). I'm so glad I was able to find it in my size! I'm using it as my wedding dress! I didn't want a traditional wedding dress and that dress had everything that I was looking for! It fit my curves, looks beautiful, it's comfortable, sexy and makes me feel like a million bucks! Thank you so much for making my up coming wedding perfect!!!
P.S. now that I know the quality of your clothing you can better believe I will be back for other occasions! Thanks again!!
My names Una Mulhare, I live in Dublin, Ireland. I've been meaning to write to you for good while now. I have been a customer of IGIGI for many years now.
I've bought many other dresses including one for my brothers wedding and anytime I wear an IGIGI I am rewarded with compliments galore. So this is just a quick email to say THANK YOU, you're a fabulous designer and dress maker, the material you use not only flatters the figure, drapes fabulously over the body to accentuate the positive but is excellent quality and I've had no hesitation in recommending you to many of my friends. I have never bought nicer dresses anywhere else.
Please keep the lovely dresses coming.
I bought my wedding dress from you, Charming Romance Wedding Gown.
I have to say i was a little worried because of the size difference from the USA to the UK, and also what the dress would look like, I had been looking for a wedding dress for 6 months, and had given up hope on ever finding something i loved. I had got to a point were i was looking to find something that would just do. A friend had sent me a link for another site and so one of your dresses on it, so I entered IGIGI onto Google and found my dress. As soon as i saw it and I knew it was the one. Pictures always look better than what you get, but i have to say the picture did the dress no justice. The quality of the material is clear, just by the touch of it. Don't think i can find the words to thank you enough, for making me feel amazing on the most important day of my life.
Thank you for your wonderful site and making such beautiful clothes for the larger lady.

Loved the dress and it fit perfectly at the special event that my husband and I attended. I couldn't have been more pleased. Can't wait to wear the Georgian dress to the Fiddle on the Roof presentation.
Thanks soooooo much! Looking forward to more designs, love it.
Sincerely Teresa G
Thank you very much for your very quick delivery of my two beautiful Igigi dresses- the Kristina gown and the Cybelle cocktail dress. The dresses are stunning and both of them fit very well. They are well made from quality material. I definitely felt very comfortable and looked stunning wearing both of them - if I do say so myself. :)
I'm very happy with my purchases. Thanks very much for making Igigi so accessible in Australia.
Thanks again - I have already recommended you, and Igigi, to some of my friends.
First of all, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for making me feel pretty again! Some background information... I'm a 5, 8" tall, very fair-skinned, natural redhead & I suffer from various medical conditions, due to being run over by a 4-ton cement truck when I was 9 years old, that make it almost impossible for me to lose weight. On top of that, I'm not allowed to shave my legs due to circulatory issues & I can't use chemical hair removers due to skin issues. Therefore, I'm left feeling like a fat, hairy ape most of the time. Clothing that I've found in the past, just didn't make me feel attractive & most maxi dresses I find are not actually long enough for me. Then I discovered Igigi through the onestopshop.com website.
I first ordered your Samantha Maxi Dress & used the size guide on onestopshop.com. The dress was too big for me, but I loved the drape, feel, & look of it. So I went through your website & ordered the correct size for me & gave the larger dress to my sister-in-law (she was here when I tried it on & complimented me on it). Upon her trying it on, she fell in love with it & cursed her single mother schoolteacher's salary for not being able to afford your clothing, but rejoiced in the Samantha dress. After getting myself that dress, I also got myself your Aphrodite Gown in Sea Breeze & your Kayleen Maxi dress. The Kayleen pattern is not my usual style, but because I love your clothes, I went for it ... And I'm certainly glad I did as I've received many compliments on it!
I simply cannot praise your dresses enough! They are truly "maxi" dresses & (more importantly) I feel pretty again! I now hound your website in hopes of finding more maxi dresses in colors that would compliment my coloring & my husband says, "Honey you look beautiful in anything, but if you feel beautiful ... That's worth every penny those clothes cost & so much more." Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

I received the package with the Rainforest Paradise Maxi dress, and thank you very much.
Excellent dress with beautiful and fresh colors! The sizing is perfect too!
Irena S., Slovakia-Europa
I ordered 2 dresses from the website. They arrived promptly and I just wanted to thank you. The website gave me sufficient guidance that they fit like a dream. But the quality is outstanding. The lining, the drape of the fabric, the construction of the garment. I will not hesitate to order from you again and will pass this onto my friends.
Hollister L., Richmond VA
I received my Nellie colourblock dress and I am absolutely delighted with it. This is the first time I have ever ordered clothing over the internet and I was especially delighted with how quick it was sent here to Australia. The feel of the dress is beautiful and I have already had a number of compliments. I will definitely shop with Igigi again.
Kristine J., New South Wales, Australia
Hi I'm writing to tell you how much I love my Tierney Blouse in Dusty Rose purchase from Igigi. It was such a nice touch to add the tissue paper and the hanger. Thank you for making fashionable plus sizes.
Kristin L., Bangor, Pennsylvania
This is my second dress from Igigi. I LOVED IT! I received so many compliments. I ordered it and received it within a few days. I was the MC at a party and the dress gave me the attention I deserved. Thanks Igigi. I will be buying many many more items from you.
Monique Coles, Miss Full Figured Jacksonville 2010
I just received my order and had to sit down immediately to write and say Thank You! This is my first purchase from IGIGI and it won’t be my last!
I purchased the Tocarra Sweater tunic. Love, Love the colors and the fabric is so soft and comfortable. Totally will look cute with leggings and boots. I also purchased the leather wrap around belt and will be wearing that with the sweater.
Also in my box of fashion bliss was my Bergman blouse in multi-print colors. OMG! I am in love! In April I’m going with 3 girlfriends to Las Vegas to see Rod Stewart and I will deff be wearing this blouse with some black jeans and booties! Can’t wait to show it off!!
Thank You again!!!
Patt H. Mission Viejo,CA.
You did it again. This is my second time ordering a dress from your site for my annual company party. Although I had to have the dress altered a little, the fit was otherwise perfect. Thank you so much for designing such great clothes for us BBWs!!!!
Tonya W., Springs, Georgia
I have never written a testimonial like this before, but I just had to write in after receiving my IGIGI order of dresses today. I am blown away by how beautiful and flattering every single dress is! They are all such high quality--beautifully made and really designed to flatter a woman with curves. After searching and trying on so many dresses in stores, I feel like I have finally found a designer who knows how to flatter my body in the Igigi fashions. Thank you for your great products and service--I am so excited to wear all my beautiful new clothing! I love IGIGI!!!
Heidi S., Los Angeles
Back in July of this year, I wrote to Igigi begging you to bring back this gown -- my comments appear in your reviews for the dress.At that time, I swore that if you brought it back, I would purchase it. Well, I happen to have an upcoming holiday concert in which I will be performing... a perfect excuse for my indulgence of the Garbo-Gown-sort!It is magnificent. The fabric hugs my curves elegantly and makes me feel positively radiant. Thank you ever so much for bringing back this design.(I have emailed you a picture of me in the gown that you can attach to this review if you like.)
Meagan G., Sierra vista, Arizona
I just received my very first order from IGIGI, and couldn't be more thrilled! I'm absolutely impressed by the quality of dresses and blouses that I bought, so now I'm going back for more to take advantage of the Thanksgiving sale. What attracted me to your site at first was the Shapes/Style guide, and how I could use that information going forward in my shopping selections. It's especially difficult to shop online, since you can't try things on and see how YOU look in them before you buy. But with the shape guide, I felt more confident that what I was seeing online would be a good fit for me. And I wasn't disappointed. I tore open the box as soon as it arrived and tried everything on right away, and fell in love with the look and feel of it all instantly. The quality of your clothes is outstanding! I feel sexy again. Thanks for the great work that you do and the care that you put into everything that you sell. I can't wait until my next shipment!!
A new fan,
~ Terri W., Minnetonka, Minnesota
Thanks for a great dress design.
I recently attended an event and had a photo op with Jason Wu wearing your dress.
I felt great!

I bought the Audrey Cocktail Dress and wore it with the black shrug to a family wedding at the end of July, 2011. I have NEVER had so many compliments in my life! I wrote you in 2010 after attending a family wedding in September about buying and wearing the Happy Flowers Dress, purple shrug and orange and gold earrings and the compliments I had then. However, when I wore my Audrey Cocktail Dress, I was called "hottie," "sexy", "hot", etc!!! I felt great and knew I looked good and people told me so many, many times!
Thank you IGIGI! You are SO wonderful and creative and your clothes help plus size women look great, their best and sexy. You ARE the gold standard and I am so grateful you exist!! You respect plus sized women as individuals and celebrate our bodies with your marvelous clothes. I actually have several other IGIGI dresses and get compliments on every one. However, this Audrey Cocktail Dress -- I have never gotten this many compliments and positive attention in my life!
God bless all of you and keep doing what you do; you make a difference!
Your fan and loyal customer,

I have now bought at least ten pieces from Igigi and I continue to go back because the pieces are well-built and fit amazing! I love the dresses especially because I am the stereotypical hourglass shape and the pieces hug where they should and then conceal the rest. I never feel the need to wear binding undergarments (e.g. Spanx) because the pieces fit so well and since they are lined they skim the silhouette appropriately. Most of all, I feel like every piece I purchase is an investment – some may think the pieces seem a little expensive but my experience has been that every piece I buy will last for years and to me the investment is worth it. Igigi has changed my life. The pieces have helped my confidence and my reputation (I’m not the fat girl, I’m the girl with the amazing clothes!). Being plus-size it’s difficult to look in the mirror and say, “I’m beautiful!” but when I wear my Igigi dresses I say it easily and sincerely. Thank you Igigi!!

I have received the dress very quickly and happy with the fit and style on me. Definately will do this again. Thank you.
Merinda G., Sydney, Australia
This month we will celebrate our first anniversary.
However, it's not too late to thank you for helping me look beautiful and feel fabulous on my special day.
Ours was an afternoon garden wedding. I'm definitely not the white and frilly dress kinda woman.
My dear friend, Corinna, heard my request "colorful, casual, garden party elegant" and she found this dress on your site.
I ordered two different sizes, one was perfect, fit like a dream. Your staff even sent me a yard of fabric to make a handbag to match.
I have since worn this dress to 3 other dressy events, and plan to wear it many more times.
How marvelous to look great AND be comfortable...at any age and any size!
Thank you again,
Tina F., Lancaster, Pennsylvania
Hi Igigi team, i order this beautiful dress only one week before i went on a cruise with my husband, I love it, I got so many compliments and best of all very glamourous (which is totally me)..........I will FOR SURE become a regular costumer AND ALL MY GLAMOROUS FRIENDS TOO................I LOVE IGIGI.
Clotilde G., Woodhaven, New York
I love your clothing. In fact, I got married in an Igigi dress. We got married at the beach and the dress was perfect. We made a wrap to go with it.
I wear Igigi clothing almost every day and almost every day a woman stops me somewhere to tell me how much she loves my dress and where did I get it?
I don't bother to buy dresses anywhere else now and am looking forward to purchasing something new soon!
Cheri H., Federal way, Washington
I just wanted to thank you for the lovely dress, I felt glamorous and sexy at a family wedding! Many of the guests commented on the lovely color and great cut of the Margot gown. I am visiting your site often and looking forward to more purchases soon!

One hour before leaving Ohio to compete in the U.S. United Pageant in Atlanta; the dry cleaners ruined my competition evening gown. The flowers on my dress were detatched and it would have taken about 7 women to complete 4 roses each in order to get them all finished in time for the evening gown competition that Sunday afternoon. With only 2 days... that was almost an impossible feat.
One of my friends and sister queen, Rae Wilson, loaned me her IGIGI gown, "Rainforest Paradise", that was absolutely stunning when I tried it on!!! I was a little nervous because I never competed with an unfamiliar gown before, but I felt fabulous in it!!! I have attached pictures of when I first tried on the gown and one during competition with the completed look.
I am proud to report that I am your new 2011 U.S. United Queen of Queens (overall high score winner)!! I am thankful to Rae for her thoughtful consideration in allowing me to use her gown and thank you to IGIGI for creating such beautiful apparel to compliment full-figured women!!! Kisses... :-)

When I found your website I was so happy to see beautifully designed dresses on beautiful models, but I've ordered so often from catalogs and websites and been seriously disappointed. My order arrived five days after I ordered it (even with the Independence Day holiday), and when I tried the two dresses on I was really thrilled to discover the size was exactly right, the quality was superb and I'm so happy to see myself looking pretty, sexy and glamorous in evening dresses that are beautifully designed and crafted, I have to also say, it's lovely to speak with someone at your website who knows the clothes and the sizes. Maria was such a help to me since I'm uneasy sometimes ordering online when I don't know the source. She was just great. I hope this is the start of a beautiful relationship!

Hello- I just wore your Celine Wedding Gown on my wedding on the beach. I loved it so much!!! Here are some pics! I wish you could upload pics in the customer review section!!
In photo: Gennesa N., SILEX, Missouri
I love this dress! I wore it to a wedding and out to dinner with my husband in DC. Even the valet parking attendants complimented me. Not only do I feel sexy in these clothes, but when I walk into a room the colors and movement of the fabric grab everyone's attention. Nothing like being the Belle of the Ball!
**I did have to hem this dress. I am 5'3". Do you think you could offer petite cuts of the long maxi dresses? Also, I am a stay at home mom with not many opportunities to wear formal dresses. Do you think you could make more casual sundress style, mom at the playground clothes?
Kimberly N., Leesburg, Virginia
You guys are great!!!!
order was made in june 16th 2011 and i just received my dress.today is june the 20th...excellent service and quicker than thunder!
my only regret is the size, my mistake.i must have had chosen 18/20 instead of 22/24 is very large for me.but iam about to have it tightened to a tailor so everything is fine.
keep up the good work, I am about to shop again as soon as possible! splendid!fabulous! superb!
Christina Athens, Greece
"I received today this lovely dress (incredibly fast delivery!), and as always I'm very very happy with my purchase! It fits perfectly, the fabric is great and it hugs me in all the right places :-) if you love as I do the sexy secretary look go for this! and if you ladies don't want to show too much cleavage, simply add a black cami underneath and you'll be proper for work. much appreciated the little card, too. thanks IGIGI <3 P. S. : did I ever mention that my skinny mum (size 10-12) made me order three dresses of yours? obviously they were too big, but she went to the tailor and made them fix and now she looks amazing in them! Just to say how much your clothes are appreciated, skinny girls too want to wear them! and Yuliya, maybe this is one of your biggest vanquishments!"
Enrica C., Italy
I just have to say how pleased I was with my first purchase with igigi.I happened upon this website by accident and was looking for a dress to wear this month to my son’s graduation. I chose the Francesca dress after reading many of the reviews. The material of the dress does not look like the picture, however the style of the dress is exactly how it looks. This is a very smart, sharp dress once on and the material makes it flow and hang so nice. It truly is little black dress worth having in the closet. I was also impressed with the company and the quick services. I ordered this dress the day before the holiday in May and received It in Canada by Wednesday the following week.
Lavern B-M, Calgary,Alberta, Canada June 2011
Thank you for your wonderful service and excellent quality dresses I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to find they all fit perfectly and the finish is beautiful. I will be ordering all my clothes from you for now on so let’s hope the US$ stays on par with the AUS$ so I can make the most of your wonderful clothes and efficient delivery for international postage. Well done to all the staff at IGIGI.
Sue N., Queensland Australia
IGIGI has changed my life! Both in the way a dress and the way I feel about myself. Who would have quessed a website could do what no one else has been able to do, I feel good about myself. I have never said that in my all of my overweight 53 years. The belief that women of plus size can be just as beautiful as our thinner counterparts is a very powerful thing. I will always be thankful to Ms. Raquel and every at IGIGI for changing my life for the better. Needless to say I have enjoyed wearing all my new clothess. It makes it so easy to shop by my body type to find something to fit proper. I am sending a photo to show how beautiful IGIGI has made me look and feel.
With warmest regards and thanks,

I purchased the Rainforest Paradise Maxi Dress for a May wedding, and absolutely loved it! Although I can wear xl and/or size 14/16 from regular stores, I just couldn’t find the right Maxi for my age (45). It needed to be elegant, not too clingy and not junior-ish! Well this dress was all that! The neckline is beautiful and the fit was perfect. I can’t wait to order from Igigi again!

Hi IGIGI and all the Team
We went to NYC for our Honeymoon and here is a pic of me wearing my beautiful gown to Phantom of the Opera....hope you enjoy....these clothes make goddesses out of ordinary gals like me and we love you for it.
Jilly N., VA USA
I received my beautiful sculpted black cocktail dress the other day. Wow! The quality of the fabric was wonderful and I wasn’t expecting the amazing fit! The fabric shapes you into a perfect hourglass and the classic details on the dress will assure it’s a dress I will be able to use for so many occasion’s without fear that it will go “out of style”. Thank you for selling quality, classic styles for use full figured ladies! I plan on shopping again with your company very soon!
Paula M R., Wells, Michigan
I just wanted to send my personal thanks to IGIGI for designing such wonderful clothing for today's plus size woman. Recently, my company had a party and I wanted to be dressed to the nines. Most party/evening dresses for plus size women are cut too small for me or they look very frumpy. I consider my self to be a somewhat attractive woman and I did not want a dress that was going to take away from that, but instead enhance it. Again, thanks to your designers for keeping "us" in mind. Attached is a picture of me in the dress.

Christmas 2010 the perfect dress for the perfect Christmas ball, This dress was great, I had just had surgery 6 wks before so I couldn't wear my normal foundation garments,this dress help me hide my imperfections and come out wonderful. My husband was so pleased. I've ordered again and I'm loving my new dress even more, pictures to come, next time with a smile.

I am preparing for a cruise tour at the end of May and really needed some stunning evening wear, after searcfhing the internet I stumbled across Igigi and managed to obtain the Luna Gown from a UK supplier but unfortunatley they do not stock the Tropical Maxi dress so I ordered this directly from Igigi 5 days ago, it arrived safe and sound at my home in the UK today! absolutely amazing service.
I am so impressed with the quality and fit of your of your gowns that I have the Heloise dress on order with the UK supplier and am excited about receiving that as well.
The fabrics are all stunning and although I have to get the length altered (which I expected and have a seamstress on stand by to do this for me once all my dresses have arrived).
I will certainly be buying Igigi again!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Genette O., Birmingham, UK
Received my dresses the other day and I am impressed! The quality is exceptional and the fit is oh la la! Wore one to work yesterday and received so many compliments. Had to return one dress because I received the wrong style. Customer service was personable, checked stock and made sure that the correct item was sent to me. I will be shopping with Igigi from now on!
Donna P., Upper Marlboro, Maryland
I LOVE Igigi and I make all my appearances as Miss Plus America in an Igigi gown! I saw the Celine gown which I knew would look great on me because the Black Magic gown was the same pattern and I looked breathtaking when I wore the Black Magic Gown last fall! I ordered it overnight and it arrived exactly two weeks from my wedding day... tried it on and O-M-G it looked amazing! I instantly felt beautiful. In fact, Gorgeous! It flattered my shape perfectly and it did not require any alterations! The stretch lace flowed angelically as I walked. Everyone loved my gown! Every woman wants to feel like a queen on their wedding day and even though I am Miss Plus America...I felt more royal than when I had the crown placed on my head.
Thank you Yulia. Thank you Igigi
Latasha H., Renton, Washington
I first saw this gown at Full Figured Fashion Weekend in L.A. late October...It was stunning! When I came home to Seattle, my boyfriend totally caught me off guard and proposed!! The search for the perfect gown was on. At the time, the Celine Wedding Gown had not been release for public sale so I chose a gown from a different plus size designer. When the gown from the other designer arrived, I did not feel beautiful in it. I had gained more weight and know matter how much they altered it I just felt unattractive...One day I started looking for another gown option and decided to check out Igigi... (continued below)
Thank you Yulia. Thank you Igigi!
Latasha H., Renton, Washington
I love the dress I got I cannot believe how well it looks on me. It fits my body so well I never thought that was possible. My wedding dress does not even fit that well. I will definitely be buying more items from Igigi in the future.
MIchelle T., Carmichael, CA
To the amazing IGIGI Team,
This is just a short note to say that I received my order of the So Talented, Valerie Wrap and Grande Gallerie dresses. All three are absolutely outstanding. It is as if Yuliya designed them for me personally and made them to measure. Amazing value for money. From now on I will only purchase my corporate wardrobe from IGIGI.
Adrienne R., Farrer, ACT, Australia
Just letting you know my dress arrived yesterday, but I was away.
I'm over the moon with my dress, it's absolutely stunning and amazingly comfortable. Thanks too for such excellent service - it took three days to get to me in New Zealand, most impressive.
Look forward to using your service again.
Diane, New Zealand
I purchased a dress from you in November 2010 via your website. The dress fits me very well, the material falls beautifully and looks really lovely on, but for one thing, it's just a little too short for me (I am 5.10 in stocking feet!).
A couple of weeks ago I telephoned your office (from London) to enquire if you might have some off-cuts of the purple material so that I could add 2-3inches in length to the dress, in order to wear it to a wedding in May 2011. I spoke to Maria, who took my information and details of my somewhat bizzare request. Nearly two weeks passed and, as I didnt hear back, either by phone or email, I assumed that it was not possible to assist me with some additional material.
You can imagine my suprise and delight when yesterday I received a package from Maria containing a few meters of the fabric I need.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I am so gratfeul to you Maria, for taking the time to deal with my enquiry and arrange for the package to be sent to London for me. What can I say - but thank you - from the bottom of my heart. I will now be able to make the dress longer, which I know is going to look fabulous, and I will also be able to make a stole from the extra fabric. I am delilghted!
You have truly surpassed what I would consider excellent customer service and have made me one very happy customer! I wish that all companies treated their customers like you. Keep it up!
I will continue to recommend Igigi to my friends and family.
with warmest regards,
Shelley T.,Watford, UK
I had to write to thank you for my order which was received in great condition. This is my first order with Igigi and I am delighted!!! I ordered two dresses; Champs Elysees in Black and In Full Bloom Wrap Dress.
The Champs Elysees Dress is wonderful. Comfortable yet structured and capable of day to evening wear. I am large busted and the fit of this dress is great for me. It overs full coverage in the bust area without hanging limp over my stomach and hips like so many others have when I have hunted for my version of the 'little black dress.' I love it! And it looks terrific with both a high heel and a flat... I can't say enough about this dress. Great fabric, wonderful drape, and I feel like a million in it.
The In Full Bloom was on clearance and also a departure for me. More frilly than I would typically wear but I look forward to wearing it this Spring and Summer. The wrap style eases over the breast area forgivingly and the long ties allow the wrap to be tied in the back, the front, or on the side for slightly different looks. The colors are soft and wonderful and can be worn with so many different shoe options (I have already tried on 4 different style and colors that all look great). The under dress has a great feel with just enough stretch to move with the body and overdress. The quality of the material of the overdress is amazing and very well sewn.
Thank you. I feel womanly in my new clothes and will be back in the future!

I wanted to thank you for coming to my rescue after discovering that the rhinestone accent on my Eternal Love gown and been destroyed at the dry cleaners! I had purchased this gown, along with the Golden Flowers limited edition gown, for a cruise and had only gotten to wear them the one time before taking them to the cleaners. As I was transferring the dress from the dry cleaning bag to a garment storage bag, I noticed that the beautiful rhinestone belt was now a big, melted, sparkly lump. What a disaster - and I was heart broken!
I received the replacement in the mail today. You were wonderful to help and I plan to wear the gown again for our Rotary Sweetheart Dinner/Dance on Valentine's Day.
You all deserve a special place in heaven - not just for the wonderful customer service, but for the way you make all of your customers look and feel like the beautiful women we are!
Julie B., New Mexico
I was so anxious to receive my parcel and it came as promised within 4days…..thank you IGIGI. This is one of my best purchases ever. I am completely satisfied with every item I bought …. awwwsome!!
The fabric makes me feel sexy – I love my Sachi dress it’s gorgeous. Wore my blouse the next day to work and yes great comments from my colleagues – the sexy cut at the front….its out there!
Love your work IGIGI and thanks for making me feel good about myself with all your beautiful clothes – I feel like a new woman when I wear them.

Thank you so much for all of the amazing customer service. I have to tell you, I gave your website as an example to a local Canadian business that I was talking to recently. It was very difficult to navigate their stock & even with a gift card I couldn't find anything to buy. After an hour, I gave up & called them. I told them about your site and where I was doing all my shopping & they should check you out to find out why. (Although that wouldn't caputure all of the wonderful behind the scene customer service that goes on, not to mention Yuliya's amazing clothes!)
Jacquie G., Burlington, Ontario
It was my first time to purchase from you. I am extremely pleased with both items I purchased. My daughter is getting married in March and I've been searching for a dress that would be comfortable & becoming. When I tried the long dress on, it fit perfectly and was so comfortable I could not believe it. The shorter dress fits well also and is just as comfortable. I'm thinking I will wear the short one to one of the wedding events. Your service was outstanding. Delivery was quick and everything was just as posted on your site. I could not be happier.
Debbie N., Houston, Texas
The first is a picture of my Mother in the Teal wrap dress. She looked beautiful. The second picture is of me and my daughter doing it “Texas Style!” We kick off our high heels and put on our dancin’ boots!
Thank you again for making a dress that made me feel and look like a goddess! I will be forever grateful!!
Michelle G., Leander, Texas
Good Morning My Friends!!
It has been a little over a week since my wedding and I MUST say…I looked and felt so beautiful! I wore the Eternal Love wedding dress and I felt every inch the goddess! The dress fit perfectly…not too tight and very comfortable! I received rave reviews from all attendees and I felt so very beautiful! I cannot thank you enough for making my most special day so perfect with your creation! There were actually 3 of us in attendance that were wearing your creations! My Mother, my step-daughter and myself of course. We ALL looked marvelous!!
With all my heart I thank you for having the heart and passion, the insight and creativity to take into consideration that we more voluptuous women need clothing designed specifically for our shapes and proportions and doing such a fabulous job in the execution of those designs! I want the world to know how wonderful you all are!!
Customer service guided me through the size selection with such polite courtesy and love! We all received our gowns in a timely fashion and were all elated at the beautiful fit. Thank you all with my whole heart for the wonderful job you each and every one perform to make Igigi such a great resource for all of us!
Many happy wishes for a prosperous and exciting New Year…now and always!!!
Michelle G., Leander, Texas
My online experience has been great. I placed an order on Tuesday, and it arrived on Thursday and I am in Canada!
I was very impressed with the speed of the delivery. It was outstanding. The only negative was that the email informing me of my order confirmation did not come right away, so I was concerned. It actually showed up after I received the product.
The Dress is great. It has nice lining and nice finishing. I thought that it was not a velvety looking as in its pictures. Its more of a polyblend material. However, put it on... And it was awesome looking. Nice, light and in the light when its on it looks luxurious. I also was pleased with the fit of the dress.
I was concerned about the sizing..but after going over your size charts II bought the size it suggested after measuring and the fit was bang on. It looks great. Thank you.
Joanne Goss, Canada
I ordered the Goddess dress and it was wonderful, it is no longer available but I must stay it was outstanding. I felt like Cinderella at the ball. It fit to perfection and my Husband love me in this gown , I was able to get a bolero jacket locally to complement the dress so I felt like a million. We went to a Christmas ball and I was the most elegant lady in attendance. Thank you so much IGIGI for making my day.I''m 5'8 and the dress was a tad long but if all of the formals or so designed they are perfect with higher heels, I normally wear a 2 inch heel.
Thanks again so much

I was a bit skeptical ordering online, but alot of blogs raved about your product. At first I was unsure about the price of your clothing, usually plus size clothing is overpriced, low quality, and for some reason spackled with shiny stuff or bus size prints (also possibly bus prints) . I was shocked shocked (shocked!) by the quality of the clothing! It fit beautifully, the fabrics are sturdy and lovely, I feel like I am wearing the highest end dress. The proportions fit my body perfectly, alot of times I find the bust too small and the waist and hips too large (I have a 46" bust and 35" waist). Thank you for such wonderful products, as a teacher these dresses are the perfect career wear (one of the hardest type of clothes to shop for).
BTW: I purchased the promenade dress, and the tres charmant dress. The value of your clothing is outstanding and I am sure I will order again.
Bailey P., Pasadena , California
The only comment that I have is that I LOVE IT. I bought this for my husband's Christmas Party and instead of the belt I wore it with a very festive fancy Red shawl wrap. I felt so pretty and wonderful in it. You have wonderful items of clothing and I so wish that I could afford more of them because I would make Igigi my only place to shop. Everything fit perfect and felt wonderful.
When I called and talked to customer service first before I ordered, the service was fabulous, I don't believe that you could have gotten that any place else.
Thank you and I hope to keep checking the sales and hopefully buy more of IGIGI,
Newest Fan fan of IGIGI. Also, my husband and I are trying to plan a trip to California and if I do, I plan on looking up to find your shop.
Pamela K., Clear Lake, Wisconsin
Sorry, but I couldn't find the link on your site to leave feedback and to rate my service I had, so here it is in a nut shell!
I just wanted to thank you for your site! I just happened to be stressing over finding a formal gown to wear for my hubbys work Christmas Party. I had gone and looked at several "big" women stores and did not find anything I liked but most all nothing fit!
I was now frantic and started researching on line. I came across your website and browsed through all of the gowns and dresses you offered!
Now buying on line is a bit scary, but I took a chance and bought a beautiful black
gown and a lace (Half top 3/4 sleeve top). The price was just a bit high, but I think all in all, it was worth it. I recieved the package 2 days later and was absolutely thrilled that it fit just perfect! The length was a bit long (But with alterations, fit
wonderfully) Needless to say, it turned out to be a wonderful evening and I felt absolutely beautiful walking next to my charming husband who was so proud to have me by his side! Being slighlty "Big" can be a big challenge in finding clothes that fit just right and actually look good on you without making you look bigger when you are. I was absolutely thrilled to have found igigi.com and will list them
on my blog site!
All I can do is thank you for such prompt, fast service and beautiful clothes you offer to us who are a bit self concious of ourselves and timid when out on the town for a special occasion. Thank you so much! I felt like I was one in a million gal that night and above all that, my husband absolutely loved my gown and the way it looked on me! That above anything else was the most important thing to me. I will purchase from igigi.com again definately!!
Thank you again!
Debby P., Las Vegas, Nevada
This was the first time I had shopped Igigi and it is fabulous. The black Francesca Dress garnered compliments galore from family, friends and my dear husband. It felt great, is beautifully made and really a "show stopper". Thank you.
Karen Lyn J., Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey
I just received my dress that I ordered for my daughter. When she opened the box she looked at it and said, Mom this ain't going to fit. Make sure it is a size 24. So I checked at said yes it is. So she took it out of the bag and tried it on. It fits and looks great on her. I couldn't be more pleased that she chose your company to get her dress for her sister-in-law's birthday ball in December. I am thinking of ordering something for my self.
Thanks again for having such beautiful clothing for us bigger women!
Kathy N. and daughter KimLee D., Reading, Pennsylvania
Words cannot describe the euphoria of trying on your gorgeous gowns and having such a wonderful problem - they look so fabulous and fit so well that it is hard to select which ones are the "IT" gown. They all are! I have recently gone to four functions, each time in a different Igigi gown, and there are literally GASPS! of pleasure from the room. GASPS. I haven't had anybody gasp at me since I was 25. I feel beautiful in glamorous Igigi gowns. Thank you for helping me find my inner and outer beauty.
Bettyarlene R., Gardnerville, Nevada
I love the wrap gown. It is so luxurious. The gown stole the show at a recent black tie event and yet I was more comfortable than if I had been wearing a robe. I felt as though I were floating through the room, with the dress flowing so beautifully. The dress transforms to a more conservative fashion when I add a modesty panel for my charity work. It is the chameleon in my closet. When I am not sure what style of dress will be most appropriate for an event, I will reach for my Clare de Lune with confidence (and a secret little pleasure in knowing I will be the most comfortable woman in the room, while compromising none of the style). Thank you, Thank you. Thank you. You have a very loyal customer for life.
Bettyarlene R., Gardnerville, Nevada
I just wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful dresses I've just received.I also cannot believe that I live in Adelaide, Australia and they arrived in just 5 days.
We are absolutely lacking in feminine, stylish, tailored and flattering plus size clothing in Australia, and your range was a breath of very welcome fresh air. The three dresses I've ordered all different but all fit perfectly and are clearly well made. Then to have them arrive so quickly is just incredible service.
Thank you so much for making me feel so pretty, so fast. I will happily recommend (and already have) to friends. I can't wait to buy more.
Courtney S., Adelaide, Australia
In April, my husband and I decided to have an anniversary party this October to celebrate our 10 yrs of marriage. We wanted everyone to wear black and we agreed to wear a different color. I wanted to wear red, however, I could not find anything I liked. Also, being plus size and "very" picky, made it even more difficult finding something. I looked in stores, searched the web and came across www.igigi.com. I decided to purchase the Isobel dress and my husband and I loved it. I received so many compliments!!
I applaud Yuliya for being different and designing for us full-figured women. I admire her for following her heart and doing what she was destined to do, which is to make us look and feel beautiful even in this society obsessed with being thin.
Thank you Yuliya! You are a brilliant talent.
Tinnette S., Greensboro, NC
I haven't worn my dresses yet. I purchased the Cybelle cocktail dress for the rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding snd the Estella gown for the wedding. I chose these dresses, actually, as plan B and went shopping locally for dresses. After three shopping trips I was convinced that the quality and style of these dresses was so much better than anything I found in boutiques, box stores or formal shops that I am pleased with the purchase. My only disappointment was the color, I wanted red dresses. The overall quality of both dresses is so much better than dresses at twice the price that I became more and more pleased with the purchase, even for my second choice color. The attention to detail, quality of fabric, quality of workmanship were far superior to anything I found anywhere else. I will shop again with IGIGI. The quality and fit were better than expected, the package arrived exactly as promised. Thank you.
Theresa P., Dallas, Texas
I have been astonished for a few days!
My order was placed Monday about 3pm.
On Tuesday before NOON my package arrived.
I have been stunned since opening the box.
I hung the sweater by the front door and I keep looking at it with amazement.
Your extraordinary shipping service is equal to the quality and design of the garment.
I will always think of you while enjoying my sweater!
Thank you, Sincerely,
Michele D., Red Bluff, California
I haven't purchased anything yet, but I was pleasantly surprised to find models of plus-size clothing who are ACTUALLY plus-sized! I feel like if you can't even find one large model that your clothes look good on, then there's no way it will look good on me. I plan to be your customer simply for this reason. Oh, and I love the shapestyle chart and the way it picks clothes just for your shape. Good job!!
Thank you, your customer service is outstanding, from the time I called to place the order up until now.
Bertha V., Boise, Idaho
Hi there,everything is perfect, the dress is beautiful, I feel great in it, the color is awsome.Thank you
I. K. Astoria, NY
Thank you for your follow-up.
The Francesca Dress (black) was a great buy. I ordered it on-line on the Thursday and it arrived on Monday morning- what a great service from your warehouse to Sydney, NSW, Australia in a matter of days.
I was greatly impressed with both the dress and the delivery time and also thankful as it was for a big night out the following Friday.
Well, as I said the dress was great and I’m still dating that fellow!! Am looking forward to my next purchase.
A. B.-Ferguson, Dee Why, NSW Australia
I love your company and what you have created for plus size women! I bought the Happy Flowers Dress, purple shrug and orange and gold earrings. The dress is a work of art; I have never had any clothing made so well. And it fit me like it was made just for me! I wore it to my oldest nephew's wedding this Labor Day weekend and have never gotten so many compliments in my life. Thank you for being the gold standard for plus size women and making clothes that embrace the woman and compliment her body!
(Hi, Maria: You all are SO welcome! Please feel free to use my picture and e-mail on your testimonial page! I am proud to be an IGIGI customer!)
Best to all of you!
Your fan and customer.
J.M. Jaworski, Los Angeles, CA
I have two difficulties to overcome in finding a dress for a formal occasion. First, I'm a plus-sized woman who isn't interested in wearing the embroidered tents most department stores seem to think ladies of size want to wear. Second, I'm well into my middle years, and would look ridiculous in something designed for a teenager. With a wedding halfway across the country for which I was leaving within the week, I'd settled for a black cocktail dress that was okay, but not thrilling, and was depressingly reminiscent of dresses my elderly great-aunts had worn fifty years before.
Then another friend pointed me in the direction of IGIGI, where I found the gorgeous Belle of the Ball dress. It looked gorgeous on the model who was much younger than I, but the style was sophisticated enough not to be out of place on a woman of my age. With my plane leaving in a matter of days, I paid extra for expedited shipping. The dress arrived on time and fit beautifully, right out of the box. More, it was everything I could hope for: elegant, feminine and sexy without being vulgar.
My husband loved it. At the wedding, not only did I get tons of compliments, a younger woman came up to me asking if I'd purchased the dress through IGIGI, after which we bonded over our experiences here. I could not have been happier with the dress, or with my shopping experience. I plan to return IGIGI, soon.
Thanks for the excellent service and the beautiful clothes that arrived today (Saturday!!). Perfect timing as I’m going to a special party tonight & I was hoping I’d receive my Prints of a Kind dress to wear. I specifically ordered this dress with my husband’s words ringing in my ears….”you always wear black. You’d look great in some bright colours.” As he is a wonderful man and I occasionally like to surprise him to show that I’m listening, I thought this would be the dress to start off my summer wardrobe. In all honesty I love black and don’t intend on giving it up. He will, though, be pleased when he sees me in this dress.
The dress and the other items I ordered all fit beautifully! How do you do it when so many others can’t?
I ordered my clothes on Tuesday night Sydney, Australia time. The party is at 6pm today and I had thought it would be a ridiculous ask to get something here from overseas in three working days. At 1.30pm today (again, yes, it’s Saturday! Unheard of in Australia to receive any mail on a weekend), there was a knock at the front door. Standing outside my screen door was a courier holding a box……and the box contained my clothes from iGigi!!
I’m sitting here now wearing the dress, waiting for my husband to return, and writing to you. Thank you Yuliya. Everything is fantastic. And, to be honest, I guessed my measurements because my tapemeasure has disappeared. Lucky that your clothes fit true to size.
Thanks again and I look forward to many more purchases.
Dimitra, Sydney, Australia
I have recently received my first order from Igigi.
I just had to send you an email to tell you how much I LOVE everything. The fit is great, the style is great, everything about the items I ordered is so Fantastic.
can’t wait to order more. Thank you SO much…I feel so beautiful when I wear your clothes!!
And I had to call about my order, I had ordered online and requested expedited shipping in the afternoon. The person I spoke to on the phone was not only pleasant but went out of her way to make sure the shipping department was aware of the order and they got it out that day, so I had my dress for the Labor Day weekend.
I just couldn’t be happier to have found Igigi.
Shelley C., Kent, Washington
I received all the stuff i ordered on friday on the morning of Tuesday in Cyprus. Fantastic speed of service, great packaging. The sizing is perfect and the jewellery looks and feels great. I am impressed.
Serene T.M., Nicosia, Cyprus
I really love the clothes that I purchased. The quality and texture is great and they fit perfectly. The delivery time was very good to Ireland too. Thanks
Mary K., Castleisland, Ireland
I don't often write to thank companies for their service, but in this case I felt I had to. Despite living in England, the dress I ordered from you was here within days and the product itself is just perfect. I will definitely be using Igigi again.
Sarah J., WORKINGTON, UK
Hi..thanks for the opportunity to comment on the awesome top I purchased..you will definitely be one of my new favorite on-line stores! Blame It On Rio was just as pretty as in the picture, and the fit is great...thanks again...
I received Cherchez La Femme Dress within 3 days of ordering it and fell in love!! The colors are amazing and the fit is perfect. I wear 18/20 and got the last 20 in stock and it was so worth it. I received so many compliments at work and on the street. I also purchased the Tres Chic Dress and Coco Cardigan, both get tons of compliments. I'll be purchasing more dresses from IGIGI. The plus size retailer in the mall doesn't even come close to the quality and overall fashion sense of IGIGI. I feel like a young flirty beautiful woman rather than an old covered up large woman.
Keep the fashions coming!
Katherine G., Aurora, Colorado
I know I was supposed to do my review online, but a photo says a thousand words, right? This my FIRST purchase through IGIGI. I needed a dress for my friend's wedding in Oct which will be on a boat in the San Francisco Bay. I took all my measurements and realized the reason dresses were not fitting me was that I am a 12W not a 16R. My friend sent me a link to Francesca Dress in Amethyst which WOULD have been perfect but it was not available in a 12W ;-(. So I ordered it in black.
When I tried this dress on for my husband, he was beyond praise. He set up his lights and took photos of my in this dress!
Because of my tattoos getting formal is not easy for me, but with this dress my chest tattoo looks amazing, as does the dress and because of that - me.
Thank you so much and if you happen to find this dress in a 12W amethyst (or Merlot) LET ME KNOW!
Deborah L., Canton, OH
I recently purchased your Lakeside Paradise Dress and your Satin Bolero-Style Shrug in Black for my holiday celebration (Eid Al-Fitr) and I loved the outfit! It was so comfortable and I look forward to buying another dress from you. It was very modest , it is hard to find something to cover me and also is so beautiful at the same time. You have a new customer!
Bahiya A., Baltimore,MD
I don't normally send product testimonials, but I had to say thank you! I couldn't find the right dress to wear to a friend's wedding (Nimitz Mansion, Treasure Island in San Francisco), until I stumbled upon your site. I love the dress! It fit beautifully after I had it shortened, and I felt so elegant. I've never received so many compliments. Thanks again for providing gorgeous plus size clothes,
I'll be ordering from you again.
RECENTLY I BUY A WEDDING DRESS WAS PERFECT AND BEAUTIFUL,FIT IN ME VERY WELL,I MARRY IN VEGAS AND IN THE HOTEL ALL TALK ABOUT THE BEAUTY OF MY DRESS,THEY FOLLOWED ME AND ASK ABOUT WHERE I BUY THE DRESS.THANKS FOR DO THIS DAY A BEAUTIFUL ONE FOR ME ,I GOING TO USE HIM AGAIN BECAUSE I GOING TO HAVE MY BIG WEDDING IN PUERTO RICO IN A BEACH WITH ALL MY FAMILY,THE DRESS IS PERFECT FOR A BEACH WEDDING TOO,THANKS IGIGI...

To whom it may concern, I have recieved the dress I ordered for my wife and she loves it, its exactly as described and needs very little adjustments to fit her to her liking....Thank - You
Mark M., British Columbia, Canada
Dear Sir/ Madam,
I just want to say, although I have not decided what I am going to purchase yet, ( I have a couple dresses that I am deciding on) I have to say it is refreshing to see that you are selling plus sizes and ACTUALLY have a plus size model showing the clothes. How frustrating it is to go to other sites or store that are plus size and they have " skinny mini" wearing the clothes. You models make you feel like you can be as gorgeous in your clothes as they are..... BRAVO!!!
Thank you IGIGI, I loved the dress that I bought from your company. In fact, I wore it to good friends wedding, and got great praise on the dress. I just felt really fabulous in the dress. Keep on creating such great creations. Thanks again, Grace.
Graciela H., Atwater, California
I am just am just one of your many consumers and a +size woman to say the least while browsing I just could not help notice how your dresses complimented the body of the larger framed women.
Well as I tried on my dress I reached into my drawer an put on my garment then my dress......
WOW i am now ready to order another couple items.
I just recieved my "lovely geometry" dress from you and I am so pleased with it, it fits perfectly, makes me look and feel slimmer whilst flattering my curves, I love it !! This is my second IGIGI dress (the first bought from a uk stockist) and I will look no further for special dresses from now on.......I just wish more uk stockists sold your dresses or maybe UK designers should take a leaf from your book as there is nothing like your company here in the uk. I am spoiled for choice for once instead of having to make do with something because it fits !!
I am looking for an excuse to buy another dress now.....Thank you so much !
Claire M., Coventry, UK
You are the first international shopping representative who have been so helpful to me.
Have a good day.
J., Cayman Islands
Thanks for the follow up! All I can say is I love my new dresses! I was visiting my sister and she came down stairs with her new IGIG dress on that she had purchased for her wedding reception. It looked wonderful on her so immediatley I got on your website to browse and see what you had to offer. I'm so excited! The dresses that I purchased fit me true to size and look great on my beautiful plus size figure! Will share your site with others! Thank you! Oh, I also loved the fact that they were shipped in a garment bag and on hangers. :)
Melissa D., Muskegon, Michigan
Perfect... It's exactly what I was looking for. Well fit and stayed put. Thank you!
Lea S., San Jose
I love it!!! It is so difficult feeling great in clothes when heavy and this dress makes you feel sooo wonderful.
i would just like to say how refreshing it was to come across your web site. Your dresses are the nicest and most stylish dresses i have ever seen for plus size ladies. i'm sure many women like me would like to thank you and hope you still supply us curvy women with stunning dresses for years to come.
The dress has arrived, well worth the wait, absolutely lovely, thank you.
Diane B., Penarth, UK
I would like to express how much I appreciate your thoughtfulness!
Thanks for indicating a lower price on the customs invoice - you saved me quite an amount of customs duty!
Also, I was very surprised how fast I received your parcel.
And inside I found beautiful quality dresses!
Thank you very much!!!
Asta S., Klaipeda, Lithuania
I'm just dropping you a line to say how delighted I am with my Song of Bombay dress which arrived yesterday (very fast international shipping!).
Living in London, it was taking quite a chance to order the dress off your site, never having tried on your clothes before, and paying out for the international shipping and customs tax etc, but the moment I tried it on and saw my husband's face I knew it was a winner! We both love it, and the dress is so versatile that it can be dressed up or down for day or evening wear, so I know that I will get very good value and lots of wear from it.
I'm age 40 with US 18/20 hour glass shape, and I have really struggled to find affordable, grown up clothes that make me feel attractive and womanly without looking tarty and cheap or frumpy and old. Now that I've found you I will certainly be back, your internet vouchers are going to the top of my birthday list!
Suzie L., London, UK
I wore the Sorbetto Delights (purple) Dress for my best friend's wedding last night. The weather was sweltering, but I felt absolutely beautiful in this dress! My husband looooooooooved how I looked and couldn't stop showing me off!
I love the clothing options Igigi offers and recommended you to several fellow "goddesses" who wanted to know where I found such a gorgeous dress!
I'll definitely order from you again, and my husband has you stored in his "favorites" to surprise me with whatever he wants me to wear on date nights!
Tonya V. , Bushkill, Pennsylvania
First, I want to thank IGIGI for the outstanding service - yet again a quick and accurate order fulfillment, something I love to tell my friends about. I ordered the dresses below on Tuesday, and they arrived at my home yesterday. They were exactly as I had expected and fit....
-Edie D. San Leandro, California
Can i just say i LOVE your dresses. Im so glad i found your website. I live in ireland. I bought an IGIGI red knee length dress with matching shrug off TheRosedress.com year and half ago. I've worn it to four weddings since and had so many compliments on it i can not tell you.The fit, the sit, it makes me look 2 sizes smaller, that material just flatter. Well done ye. I LOVE it...
I would like you guys to know I love your stuff so much I boasted about you to a plus size fashion writer of Marie Claire magazine named Ashley. Love her articles, and thought she should mention you guys in one of them. In her July article she talks about having a hard time finding clothes to get a little more dressy, and not finding anything at the high-end dept. stores. I let her know about you guys, in case she didn't already. I hope it brings great business, but I hope my fav stuff doesn't sell out before I can buy it, lol. Thanks for bringing great fashion to our curvy bodies.
-Phinia G. San Francisco, California
THANKS SO MUCH - I JUST LOVE MY DRESS AND IT FITS PERFECTLY!

I have already recommended you to several people.
-KM D. Missoula, Montana
Thank for following up with me the dress was fab, the fit was excellent I look hot to death. I can not wait to see your fall line...
-Keisha H. Brooklyn, New York
I love my two dresses! They are absolutely gorgeous and flatter my figure. The pictures do not do them justice. The fabric is wonderful and worth the cost. I will be purchasing from IGIGI in the very near future, as I am a very satisfied customer.
-Heather J. Detroit
Thanks for your email. I would like to rate the Secret Muse dress at 5 stars. I didn´t even have to fix the straps, waist, length, nothing! I LOVED IT! ... ;)
-Gabriela R. Guatemala City
What a beautiful dress!! I could not be happier. The fit was great and I felt feminine and sexy. I WILL by more IGIGI dresses!!
-Kimberly N. Leesburg, Virginia
I am writing to say that I really love my breezy morning dress. The fit is amazing and I love the fabric and the flow of the dress. I will be making more purchases in the future.
-Lelan C. New York, New York
I am a stockist here in Australia, and i gotta tell you, everyone who has bought a dress of me, have loved it...Your service is exceptional , and i cant believe it only takes no more than 5 days to reach me here down under......
-Mel H., Ome Omine Grafton, Australia
I'm assuming, if you have my name, you also know what dress I ordered. Now, I'll tell you exactly what I think. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!! It was so comfortable, I didn't have to wear a strapless bra, the fabric was so beautiful and it hung real well, covering up all my little (sorry)rolls. I received soooo many compliments on it that day. I bought it for my youngest son's wedding. I had people asking where I bought it, how much it was, everything. I thought the price was reasonable too. Not that I would normally pay that much for a dress, but it WAS a special day. I can't say enough nice things about it. The service was great, it didn't take long to get here--oh-- and the nicest part was that I normally take a size 16-18 and I ordered the 14/16 and it fit like a glove.
I wouldn't hesitate to send a friend to you or to order again from you. By the way, do you put out a catalog or is it just on line? My niece, who is a model in New York, for the Elite Agency, found it for me.
Thank you so much for making the day even more special.
-Linda B. Lowville, New York
Thank you so much! You guys know that I am your number one fan! You also have an amazing day!
-Gwen B. Hillside, Illinois
Thank you Yuliya! I have been searching for dresses that really fit me! I looked at dresses on Torrid's website, Lane Bryant, Dillards etc...nothing that I felt fit me. I wanted something feminine, timeless, sophisticated yet young and last but not least worth paying for. I could not find it...I happened upon your site and I cannot believe how beautiful your dresses are! Thank you for making dresses for women who may be larger but are still women.

Well I just received my dress and bolero jacket. I am thrilled. The dress is perfect in fit and fashion. And the bolero jacket is fantastic.
It was received very well packed and in great condition.
I am very impressed with 'igig' and will be shopping a lot more with your company.
Thank you from a happy new customer.

We were married on May 17th in Las Vegas and I purchased my Igigi Wedding gown from an Ebay seller since Igigi was sold out of the size 12 I needed. I got lucky on the price and bought it for half the price brand new. I have to say this dress is well worth the price igigi is selling it for and was so happy when it arrived it was perfect for the weather and location. It is very light weight and has 2 to 3 layers of fabric which hides every imperfection... . It is a great buy!
I have spent the past two years browsing your website, admiring the impeccable clothing available. Being a single parent, I had never been able to muster up the courage to buy myself an outfit that was more than $50.00. The stars aligned recently where I was going to attend a wedding and had some bonus money to spend on myself. I ordered your Forget-Me-Knot Dress in Black for this occasion, to spoil myself with something beautiful and classy. I am a size 18/20 oval-shape after having my son, and to be honest, I was a bit hesitant with the design of the dress at first -- the model looked ravishing in the dress, but I don't have her shape. I listened to the "shapestyler" and the recommended picks for my shape, and committed to the purchase. Once my dress arrived, I tried it on immediately. The fabric is thick and secure, making me feel at ease with my body underneath and it creates this wonderful image of a shape I wish I had! I am so happy with this purchase -- I will be able to dress this up or down for work or future special occasions. Standing in front of a mirror and actually admiring my own reflection is something I haven't felt in years - I cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful dress and the amazing feeling of self-love. I will definitely be purchasing from Igigi in the future. Keep up the great work, and thank you for believing that beauty is within us all.

It has always been very hard for me to find 'normal', good fitting clothes like jeans and tops, but dresses were even worse!
I'm a size 22/24 and about 6''1, which is not exactly an average size (the average Dutch woman wears a size 10 and is about 5''6).
I stopped trying new dresses a couple of years ago to avoid the inevitable disappointment of the dress not being long enough, or being too tight and not feeling pretty. My best friend is getting married next month and I have the honor of being her witness. So I wanted to try one more time to find the perfect dress, and I did! With my purchase at IGIGI, for the first time in my life I found a dress that actually fits me perfectly, and makes me feel pretty. I can't wait to wear it!
Thank you so much!
I received the dress today; only 6 days after ordering!
I'm a VERY curvy/hourglass shape but wear a 26/28. Most formal wear made for my size has the words "pants suit" or "stretch velvet" in the title which makes me cringe. Double digit dress sizes shouldn't have to mean UGLY dresses.
After seeing some Igigi dresses on Nikki Blonsky (hairspray) I, easily and quickly, found a gorgeous evening gown and jacket for my upcoming opera recital on your site. It was perfect out of the box. Fit like it had been tailored to me and the fabric feels far more expensive than it is -luxurious. I didn't want to take it off and I can't wait to wear it next week.
I'm excited to do more shopping with you. I can't wait to finally wear clothes that express who I am without having to make tragic fashion allowances for my size.

Hello from Australia to the talented team at Igigi!
I just wanted to thank you so much not just for the prompt, efficient service, but for playing such an important part in ensuring that I would make a stunning - if unconventional - bride at my February 14 wedding. This was the second wedding for both my gorgeous groom and me, and we wanted something small, intimate and informal, as well as nontraditional. I, however, also wanted to take his breath away - which bride doesn't? - and turned to Igigi for the answer. While the bridal gowns are stunning, I'd been a bride in white the first time, 25 years ago, and so it was the royal blue Modena gown that caught my eye. It was truly volupté, and the colour was somehow really significant to me: having a dress that's the colour of a first-place ribbon summed up exactly how I felt marrying this wonderful man at this wonderful stage in my life. I bought another Igigi dress in chocolate brown for my maid of honour, my 22-year-old daughter, and it fit her like a glove and made her feel a million dollars. But back to the bride! The drape and the fit of the Modena were just right, and my curves! Oh, my curves. They were shown to full advantage. I had great accessories: gorgeous sexy shoes, my mother's earrings, and my favourite pendant of hers, which I have adored since I was a little girl, when I used to sit on her lap and play with it. So with something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, I stepped out into our garden to the strains of my friend Drew singing Northern Sky... and took my groom's breath away.
This is only my second order from Igigi, but I love the product because I love the philosophy behind it. The moment I discovered the site and read the statement on the "About Igigi" page, I recognized the philosophy as my own. I always read the Igigi testimonials and so many of them, sadly, have "even though" statements: statements that appear to be positive on the surface but have a qualifier in there somewhere that belies how the women feel about themselves when the clothes are off. I have no "even though" statement to make. I know I'm beautiful. And I love Igigi fashion because it confirms how I feel about myself. I do know that self-love is a journey, though, and some women will take the other route, and buy the fashion that will make them feel good about themselves - at least to begin with! Thank goodness Igigi is there for both of us, providing us with what we deserve: the best.
All best regards,

... The dress arrived this afternoon and is as lovely as in the picture. It fits perfectly and I should look fantastic at my grandson's Christening. I am very happy with your service, the packaging of the dress was very impressive. I will tell my friends about your great fashion and service.

I just got the dress – Summer Nights Dress – in fact I still have it on while writing, because I had to tell how amazing it is right away !!! I absolutely love it. Thank you!
-Valentina P., Slovenia
First, I think your products are wonderful, stylish, feminine, graceful, elegant and fun. Appropriate to so many occasions.
In picking these long dresses, it was the first time in years I was willing to try a dress. (Going to a girlfriend's wedding is
part motivation, your dresses add inspiration.) I bought the boleros to cover my arms.
The person with whom I spoke on the phone was charming, helpful, and very knowledgeable about your line, which in itself
... Thank you for having a clear vision of a woman's beauty coming in different sizes, styles, colors and prints. Thank you for usingreal size beautiful models to show off your clothes with the added technology of being able to see different perspectives.
Thank you for giving me the possibility of seeing myself in a gracious feminine way again.

I absolutely Loved, Loved Loved my dress that I purchased....and I have recommended your company to my family and friends

Hello Igigi, this isn't a question but feedback.
I've just received my order, what wonderful service! I'm in Australia, I ordered the clothes on the 15th April 2010 and received them 5 days later! Amazing service. And I am over the moon about the clothes - the quality and fit are excellent. I have looked at Igigi's site for quite a while but having had disappointing experiences previously with US sites, I was
hesitant to order. But you guys are fantastic - I am so very happy to find the clothes fit, look good and feel good. Thank you so much, you've saved a fat woman from continuing misery about finding good clothing. This won't be
my last order - you are now my first stop for when I want clothing.
All the best
-Christine W., Sydney, Australia
... I have never been into clothes because I have always been heavy.
Discovering my shape (oval) on IGIGI has given me great confidence in what I could wear that might look good.
My husband died two years ago and I haven’t been in the dating scene for over 25 years. I recently met someone that I am quite interested in. I knew that whatever I wore really needed to give me confidence in who I now am as a woman. I decided that I wanted to wear a dress even though I haven’t worn a dress (other than my wedding dress) in 25 years. I found IGIGI and fell in love with the Savona design. Unfortunately, my size wasn’t available but a smaller one was. I took the chance on buying it in the smaller size and it fit perfectly. I felt beautiful, feminine, alluring and desirable – all the things I wanted when meeting my gentleman friend for dinner. I can’t believe I have fallen in love with a dress and cannot wait to wear the other dress I purchased at the same time. Thank you for helping me find my womanly voice and reclaiming my outer beauty along with my inner beauty.

Before discovering Igigi, I approached fashion in the "I am a big woman, so cover up as much as possible in black baggy clothing" attitude.
Recently, I purchased a number of your dresses. They are beautiful and quite flattering.
Last night, I wore the Igigi "Sarafan in Turquoise/Multi" sundress to dinner with my husband. When he saw me dressed properly for the very first time since our wedding, he was VERY pleased to say the least!
He was so very adorable. At the restaurant, he was walking around like a strutting peacock, like HE was the one dressed up. He said he could not stop looking at me.
I now understand why women like "dressing up" for guys. I truly felt beautiful for the first time in many years.
3 of your dresses are going with me on my upcoming cruise.
Thank you, Igigi.
