Francesca Dress in Black from IGIGI Review & #Giveaway
If you’re plus size, then you know sometimes it can be really difficult to find stores. A lot of the time we have to go online for our clothing. The only problem is that we’re worried about fit. Well I know I am at least. I’ve always been hesitant to order from places that I haven’t tried on their clothing in physical stores.
With IGIGI I won’t ever have that problem. I stumbled upon their site last year and fell in love with their dresses. I actually almost bought my wedding dress from them but with the time crunch I was in, I wasn’t able to.
This year I approached them about becoming a clothing sponsor for me at blogher. It was one of my best blogher related choices! The beautiful gown below is the one I’ll be telling you about.
It’s called the Francesca dress. It come is black and red. Since I’m not very adventurous with color I went with the black one. In the model picture. You can clearly see cleavage so I was worried how it would fit in me. Not because I’m conservative but because I have smaller breast. My mother actually asked how I planned to pull it off.
The dress fit perfectly. Even though my chest is smaller, the fabric clung perfectly at the top. The bottom was very airy feeling. It didn’t cling in the bottom, which I really liked because that is the area I’m most uncomfortable with. The sizing runs on the bigger side. When I say that I mean I’m about a 22/24 for most clothing but fit wonderfully into a size 18/20. As long as you have your measurements you’ll easily find your right size.
Another thing I love about the company is that it’s all US made. The dresses are designed and made in San Francisco,CA. Also all the sewing manufacturers are within 10 miles of their San Francisco office. They also have a really great Shape Stylist section of the site to help you find which dresses would go perfect with the shape of your body!
I love the dress and can’t wait to wear it again!
