Stylish and Beautiful for the plus sized gal!

I love fashion, and with being a plus sized girl, sometimes good no, make that great looking stylish fashion is hard to find especially when it comes to dresses and more ‘dressed up’ clothing. I often find that when trying to find a great dress, a lot of the things available locally are either just plain ugly, too much print, or look like a tent, and that’s not what I want or need as a bigger girl.

It seems like most of the great looking clothes that we can find as plus size girls, happen to be online but it’s really hard sometimes to judge if it’s right for you, your shape and body type, it often intimidates people from ordering online, especially if there’s no local store nearby that you can return the clothing to.

I’ve found a great online store where you can feel pretty confident and take a lot of the guess work out when trying to find that perfect dress or outfit. IGIGI Clothing offered me to review their site and one of their gorgeous dresses; of course I accepted their clothing is not only beautiful but stylish as well. I was able to review their Georgia “Two-in-One” Dress. I loved this dress from the time I viewed it on the website, nothing like I have ever owned before. I’m not really a girl that likes to wear dresses for the main reason, they never fit me right.

Thanks to IGIGI I was able to view a variety of dresses that were right for my body type/shape, I also love the fact that the models are plus size models and that you can also view a short clip of the model in the dress, with movement. It gives you a great view before you buy it to see if it’s exactly what you’re looking for.

The Georgia “Two-in-One” Dress is as their website states “ultra chic and feminine”. The high-waisted pencil skirt and ruffled Italian Georgette blouse is just gorgeous and perfect for someone like me who has a diamond shape. The sleeves are ¾ lengths and the blouse is sheer. The just below-the-knee pencil skirt has strategically placed seams that give a very flattering look. The dress was the perfect fit….Almost…I’m a short girl (standing at only 5’0”) so my dress is off to be altered lengthwise to fit my height.

I can say with honesty, I was a little afraid of the high-waisted skirt at first, as well I’m a woman who has had children and have became bigger since then, I have my rolls, I have my lumps and was afraid the high waist would just accentuate those inside of hide them, but I can say without a doubt that this dress does a woman justice! It flatters your body like it should in all the right places.

I know with the holiday season approaching, a lot of us are looking for some great holiday dresses and outfits, IGIGI is probably one of the better sites to take a look at if you’re looking for something a little more stylish yet still classy at the same time and with the features above that I mentioned like the ability to identify the right dress for your body shape you get to take a lot of the guess work out. I’d like to personally thank IGIGI for helping us bigger girls look even more beautiful.

Great contest Thanks

This is a fantastic giveaway! I bought a dress from IGIGI last year for a spring ball. I hated dress shopping in stores because they never seem to have anything my size, or anything nice that fits right. I took a risk and found IGIGI and bought a dress, and it fit perfectly, and it looked so nice! I have since bought a couple more dresses from there because they make me feel pretty and good about myself. So I love this giveaway because I love IGIGI and what they've given me: confidence that I can wear a dress!

Lisa said...

Sharla said...

I'm going over right now to sign up for the contest. I just wanted to let you know how happy I am that I found your page and that you found IGIGI. I too, have the same problems you do - finding the right stylish dress only online, only to see it on a tiny model and not knowing how it's going to move.

Thank you.
