    Really, the choice is SO hard. But I stand by my comment on IGIGIs fan page: Tulin’s dress. Though each dress is a knock-out, I have always admired a zebra print. Not only does Tulin’s dress have zebra print, but is also super flattering and fabulous! I love it!!

    I absolutely love all the dresses. The Bassa Maxi dress is a must have for me. Especially since it looks like it is versatile. I wish I could buy them all!! If i won $500 or $250 I would definitely buy that dress. The animal print dresses are gorgeous on the website also.

    I love the idea of this and definitely love the way you guys promote hip fashion for plus size women and alternate places to shop seeing that a lot of stores have your “avg big girl style clothing”…im very into fashion and love creating looks out of my pieces by wearing them diff then what u would expect, ie: using a scarf as a top piece, wearing shirts backwards to create a diff look, etc..

  13. Lesley Pedraza

    July 9, 2012 at 12:50 pm

    All three dresses were breathtaking in person at the FFFWeek show – REALLY!
    My pick goes to Tulin’s dress though, the black and white gown with red touches – figure-flattering and hot, hot, HAWT!!

  14. La Shea

  19. Lauren Calixte

    July 9, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    I honestly can’t pick one dress that I like the best! I am torn between the Bassa Maxi and the Rainforest Maxi and the Isabella Wrap Dress is a closet must-have! I would get as many as I could with whichever gift card I win and still probably have to add money to it! Lol!

  20. Khrista Brownlee

    July 9, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    IGIGI makes it difficult for you to narrow it down to just one. However, I would have to say my fave is Bassa Maxi Dress. I am a busty woman, so this dress will accent it with class. Not too much showing, but just enough to get a double take from people passing by. The colors are to die for. The design and colors will have you mesmerized. But this is very smart, because for those of us that have that not so pleasant balloon stomach or muffin top, the color/design combination makes it appear to the eye that it doesn’t exist!

  21. Sam Eagle

    July 9, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    This is the look that I love is Ivanna Tunic,Karina Wide Leg Pants together I think they are my kind of look… 🙂

  22. Shellby

  24. Tiffany M.

    July 9, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    I LOVE ALL THE COLLECTIONS! But My pick is the day to night colections. I enjoy how you can go from casual sexy to super glam. It’s such an easy choice with just the right change of hair, shoes, jewelery, and make -up. you can transform from daytime chic to runway glam!

  25. Jae'tte

    July 9, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    Oh my gosh, I just love the Bassa Maxi Dress, especially with the shrug. It is a fantastic item to go from day to night in. I am a hairstylist/makeup artist. I can totally imagine wearing this FAB dress on a Friday to work. We are so rushed on Friday’s that I usually don’t have a lot of time to go back home and change to go out. This would be perfect for me. I have a very small waist and very full hips and derrier, I see this style would truly compliment my shape as well! Oh, I love it!!!

  26. Actress Cola

    July 9, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    Choose just ONE???!?!? have you seen the clothes she designs!!??!?! and you want me to choose JUST ONE!!!!!! i choose them ALLLLL!!!! i could pull off ALLL OF THEM! and if i was to win the gift code….i would buy up as many different styles from IGIGI for my upcoming fashion show in August and make sure that my director states the the outfits came from IGIGI and put the website in the show program because these outfits are AMAZING!!!

  30. Sonja Gerow

    July 9, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    The Oliana dress and Amaya Kimino Dress and pair that with Allegra Summer jacket for a smart work to night time outfit! I sure hope I win because the last dress I sent back because I did not care for the polka dot dress in red, so it’s broke the bank a bit!

  31. Jennifer Carter

  33. Faint Beat Blossom

    July 9, 2012 at 1:30 pm

    I very much into fashion as i mentioned in my previous comment on this page and after looking at the IGIGI site, i couldnt just pick one look.

    I loveeee the Desert Queen Maxi and Bassa Maxi dress. They are soo nice for a summer night out of the town or lunch with the girls. With a nice blazer the Bassa maxi can be transformed to a night look with ease. The Kelsey wrap in Camelia and the Kayden dress in Lemoncello are another one of my faves in the Voyage Exotique Collection

    For the Work Wear Collection: The sahara sands dress is very good dress for work i love the combination of patterns and colors it would also look great with a yellow clutch just to give it a pop of color and self identity. The provence dress in olive is also another nice dress to be worn to job or church, very simple yet classy piece with its touch of color at the hem. Though b/c of my curves i couldnt wear it to church/work b/c it would hug my body and wouldnt be good lol but i would definitely buy this to wear out for a day shopping or casual day around town. My absolute fave would be the Allegra summer jacket, which screams me. Its soo classy to be worn in the office or a business meeting. If very professional for any diva and definitely shows off your confidence and would turn heads guaranteed!

    I really like the Justine Lace in deep orchid which can be found in the Wedding Party Collection, very classy and sexy. Would look great with a simple tear drop diamond pendant necklace or pair of black pearls. As well as the rebecca gown in evergreen is a very sexy dress to wear on a date night.

    i love the options you have for us larger women. just bc we’re not a size 0-2 doesn’t mean we should be relegated to wearing muu-muu’s!!! thank you.

  36. Shannon Ikerd

    July 9, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    This is a hard one because I absolutely LOVE Igigi! If there were a more emphatic word than love, that is how I feel about them . . .

    I’m going to go with the BASSA maxi look. I just love how colorful and sensual the look is.

  37. Shapri Bryan

    July 9, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    I am incredibly fond of Igigi period! I love all of Mrs Yuliya Raquel’s clothing designs! I look forward to buying bonus pieces to add to my wardrobe! Since it appears, I am subject to only selecting ONE dress as my favorite, I would have to say the Amaya Kimono dress is the first piece I would purchase for sure!!

  38. sheri

    July 9, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    i would choose something with color…..something that POPS!! of course, something sexy n flirty ; )

  39. I Really Really Like the Cassandra Infinity Gown. It is able to be arranged differently yet every look is elegant.

    With winning the 500 code I would be able to donate some clothes to women’s organization that give hand-ups to women starting out again in business and have a lovely outfit for myself as well.

  40. Renada

    July 9, 2012 at 1:45 pm

  42. Lauren

    July 9, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    I love the Bassa Maxi dress. I would wear it in what limited down time I had now that I’ve graduated from law school to transport myself from the humdrum normality of the law to a far off exotic place (without any baggage fees!).

  43. rose finley

    July 9, 2012 at 1:48 pm

  52. Jaimie Donelan

    July 9, 2012 at 3:10 pm

  59. DivaJuggalette

    July 9, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    While there are so many beautiful dresses, my favorite is the Lanai Dress in that awesome orange. I think this is a dress that wouldn’t spend much time in the closet, because I would be wearing it so much! Cooling fabric, pockets, and the perfect length- sign me up!

    Wow, the dresses are amazing, the color the way they appear to flow and move looks amazing, i can’t wait to be in one. I found Kaori Infinity Dress & Garbo Gown to be my favorite as for style, design and colors. I could see myself at a dinner cruise looking fabulos. while exploring the entire site I also found this gourgeous Taylor Coat in Berry,l what girl wouldnt look and feel great in that coat.

  71. Andrea

    July 9, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    My 2 favorite looks right now are quite opposite; I love the Justine Lace dress in deep orchid. I just love the saturated magenta color…I would find an equally saturated dress shoe (maybe teal), no jewelry and simple hair…simple but dramatic eyes. My other favorite is the Monroe jacket and pants. I love the tailored fitted jacket–not boxy like so many plus-size suits. Sexy in its masculinity yet ultra-feminine in the cut. That’s what I would spend $500 on, those 3 gorgeous pieces. Thank you!

  72. Mary Trieu

  76. Brooke S.

    July 10, 2012 at 6:29 am

    So many beautiful choices, but I would probably choose, either, the Valencia Maxi Dress, Cassandra gown, or the Bassa Maxi dress. Hmmm… okay, I pick the Valencia Maxi dress.

And the maxi dress with blues and purples (sorry cant remember every name) and i didnt even go into accessories who knows all i will add on. I love purple, olive/green and blues. I think the models look great in everything as well… #Igigi

  78. karen teulon

    July 10, 2012 at 6:39 am

    The whole collection is so beautiful, but if I had to pick, I would have a very hard choice between the Naime maxi dress, the Ursula Vintage Polka Dot dress and the Mariko Kimon dress. i only own one dress, and that’s a four year old Igigi!

  79. Rolareen Vassell

    July 10, 2012 at 6:45 am

    I am in love with all of the Igigi Dresses. I would love the Millie Vintage Polka Dot dress because it gives me a defined waist. I love the Vadela wrap dress in Grape… Purple is my favorite color. I love it with the pop of red. I also love the Kayden Dress in Lemoncello. I’ve been eyeing that dress for a while. I would buy all or any of these dresses if I won.

  80. Conina Johnson

    July 10, 2012 at 6:47 am

    i am loving the Isabella wrap dress. i have curves to spare and i think this dress would compliment my shape. the color is beautiful and normally i don’t do ruffles but i like the way they have them falling on this dress. also the sleeves are a nice touch. if i won one of the 250 or 500 passcode i would be so thrilled and of course i would use it to get several of my favorite dresses. i’m a big girl and it’s hard for me to find stylish clothes that flatter me. i love all the dresses from igigi, i’m so glad people are finally seeing big girls want to look good to:)

    I love the Naime maxi dress.. my cousins wedding is coming up in October.. and this would be great for the occasion. October is also me and husbands 1 year anniversary, and we plan to goto Italy for the occasion. I’d love to take some of these dresses along with me. Scarves are also a big thing in Italy.. can’t go into any church without a long skirt and a scarf covering your hair. I’d invest in a long skirt/dress and some scarves!

    How can I possibly choose but one piece?!? Absolutely impossible! I can narrow it down to a handful, but that’s the best I can do! lol

    First off, every single piece in the Animal Instinct line was gorgeous, as well as from The Art of Fashion line. I am always looking for something fun, colorful, and of course unique, but being plus size, that tends to be quite a challenge; however every single piece in this collection answers my call! Absolutely fabulous pieces!

    Now to narrow it down to my favorites! These pieces really caught my eye, and in my opinion, deserve a mention: There was the Ivana Tunic, the Angeline Gown in the Exotic Beauty collection, the Stella Dress in Floral Fantasies, the Cassandra Gown, and last but certainly not least (probably on the top of my list actually), the Adeline Maxi Dress in the Resort Collection 🙂

    I am waayyyyyy toooo in love with the Bassa Maxi dress ! It seriously has my entire government written all over it! I would go so crazy if I got a chance to win this because I am such a plus size fashionista (on a budget) and I could add to my wonderful collection !

    I’d get the Angie Dress in Olive for sure! It looks so fun and flirty. I’d tease my boyfriend with it. If I won the $500 I’d add on the Leigh Lace Dress in Gold–so sultry! Anything left over would go to matching accessories, like the christie clutch in truffle or minnie earrings.

    Without a doubt my favorite piece out of your IGIGI collection is the Millie Vintage Polka Dot Dress! The style is so iconic and classic that it can be dressed up for a party or dressed down for a stroll in a park.

    If I were to win one of the two prizes, I would for sure buy the Millie Vintage Polka Dot Dress, and also another piece or two that can be worn for different occasions and settings while still looking chic and fabulous. I would also buy my mom something too because she so deserves to feel and look beautiful!!

    If I won, I’d add to my collection: the Mariko Kimono Dress which is a beautiful black and green ensemble. It’s elegant with Japanese inspirations which is what I appreciate the most! I love it in pink and grey too!

    I have been following IGIGI for a few years now. I am absolutely in love with her classy, sophisticated, and sexy style. It was so hard to choose my favorite, but I have to go with the Naime Maxi Dress! This dress is definitely a showstopper and I can see myself owning the room with this dress. Hopefully I win because this clothing line is sooo ME.. and winning that $500 means I can get another item from her line.. Oh that would be great! lol

  99. Brandi Smithwick

    July 11, 2012 at 7:51 am

    If I were to win either gift codes I would definitely buy any of those vintage dresses on there, they are gorgeous!!! Especially the Millie Vintage Polka Dot Dress it is so pretty. I am trying to dress pin up, and that is a perfect dress for a photo shoot 🙂

    So many don’t know where to begin.Love the BASS MAXI DRESS,JUSTINE LACE DRESS,ARUBA DRESS,ELILA DRESS.Haven’t shop for a long time…

  102. Jochebed Vaovasa

    July 11, 2012 at 12:43 pm

    It’s so hard to choose a dress or two! Because I’d love to have them all. This is my first time ever seeing or hearing about this clothing line&I must say, I’m so glad I came across your guys page on FB. Roaming through your collection, I fell in LOVE with the Eugenia Vintage Wedding Gown. I’m not engaged or getting married any time soon, but the elegant sexiness of that dress makes me think of a hot warrior goddess walking down the isle, better yet streets, Me! 😉 I absolutely adore the design&what it screams with its white lacy simplicity. I’m not saying your design is plan, but the fact that just with the golden ribbon around the waist&lace that falls below makes your dress say a lot w/o a LOT going on. And yes, I’d totally rock your dress at any event, even out on a date with my boyfriend. Lol. What can I say, I love dressing up!

    As for a dress I’d buy if I were to win either gift card, would be the Kaori Infinity Dress in Plum. I’m a chick who’s all about getting your moneys worth when buying something&a dress you can wear several different ways is definitely a big WIN! I like the diversity of it. A dress I can wear to morning tea with my grandma, lunch date with my girlfriends, and dance away in at some nightclub with my boyfriend, all with just a quick adjust.

  103. Devon M.

    July 11, 2012 at 2:24 pm

    The look that I love is the Francesca Dress in Crimson. I think that it’s classy and sexy. I’d love to have that dress in my collection.

  104. Erica Dunlap

    July 11, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    July 12, 2012 at 7:23 am

    My favourite look would have to be “Outdoor Market” because every girls needs a beautiful dress (Lanai Dress) that they can just throw on over their head and know that they’ll look effortlessly fabulous even if they’re in a rush. The dress looks comfortable, flattering and I like that it has pockets for my lens cap whilst I’m out taking pictures 😉

  106. Kate

    July 12, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    I love the Evitta dress in the best dressed glam guide! It’s so pretty!

  107. Jetasha Shine

    July 12, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    I love so many of the dresses! And, I’m surprised that my favorites are the Naime and the Kiyomi Maxi Dresses because I’ve never been a fan of animal prints. My mind has officially been changed!

  108. Adrienne Morella

    July 13, 2012 at 4:04 am

    I love the Bassa Maxi Dress! It is so fun and colorful:) I would love the $250 or $500 shopping code to add a few new flowy dresses into my wardrobe!

  109. Jamie Martin

    July 13, 2012 at 11:55 am

    I have way more clothes than my girlfriend does; winning this would easily get a brand new, beautiful wardrobe for all seasons!

  110. Elizabeth Webster

    July 14, 2012 at 8:27 am

    Well, what I would -like- to order are the fab maxi styles – but the practical me would go for the Mariko Kimono Dress. That’s 3 seasons in one dress and I can take it from boardroom to dinner.

  111. JaTawn Avant-Owens

    July 14, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    I love the Bassa Maxi dress shown on this page, The colors are vibrant against the black and it would be a great staple piece in my closet. The main factor for my liking this dress is that you can wear it from day to night. Its great to come across versatility in clothes.

  112. Kim Byer-Clark

    July 15, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    I would love to be able to wear the Evitta Cotton Dress dress to a SoRen Tea brunch!

  113. Brittany Brandt

    July 15, 2012 at 3:07 pm

    I love so many things! However, I think the Lempika dress is perfect. I could wear it to work, school, to date night with my fiance, and so many more places! <3

  114. Kim

    July 15, 2012 at 3:07 pm

    I am totally in love with blue and looks that I can go from day to night in. For me, the Tiffany Dress does absolutely that. The ability to adjust the tie can make this dress great for work and just the right look for after work dinner with co-workers or your significant other.

  115. Wendy Andrews

    I love the Outdoor Market dress. If i won the gift card i would by that dress and actually feel good about going out in it. I normally dont feel comfortable in a dress but that one looks amazing!

    July 15, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    I love the Bassa Maxi Dress & the Lanai Dress!!! I’m working towards getting both :-). IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel designs never disappoint ?, but ONE DAY I will add to my wardrobe & have hanging in my closet. Thanks for keeping Plus fierce!

  120. Tishea Franklin

    July 15, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    I would love to get the Tropical Beauty Maxi dress while it is back for the second time or is it the third it sells out so fast but hopefully I will be able to get one this time. Although it’s going to be challenging since I’ve been laid off for a year and have other things to do with my finances. 🙂 But I am going to the Hoodie Awards in Vegas this year and wanted to wear this to the awards who know it just may happen for me. Ok I would also get a coat and maybe a few other dresses I’ve been internet stalking lol.

  121. Jennifer Harvey

    I work in finance, and my wardrobe DOES NOT reflect it. With kids, football games, baseball and softball games, girls scouts etc. I do not have alot of time to worry about my wardrobe. I am in desperate need of some new clothes that show off my curves. LOVE the Angie dresses in every color!! I am renewing my vows next year because, we eloped and had no actual wedding. So,the Celine wedding gown is high on my list!! I promise this tired over worked mommy would love to win some new clothes!

  123. Elizabeth Martinez

    July 15, 2012 at 3:23 pm

    I could make an excuse to get gussied up and wear any of this collection but like I said on Facebook, The Birds of Paradise Gown is hands down my fav! Wonderful Collection, I love seeing clothes I can wear without feeling off trend. = )

  124. Stephanie Hitchcock

    July 15, 2012 at 3:29 pm

    I would use my gift card to.purchas the tropical beauty. Ive been going through some things these past months, an something beautifully positive would be a changer for me.

  126. Nicole Collins

    July 15, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    If I was to win the Giftcode contest, I would have to pick the Amrita Grown, the colors of the grown are so beautiful. The dress can be worn on so many different occasions, for example I have an outdoor wedding coming up and this dress would be great to wear..

  127. Ashley Rihel

    July 15, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    I had not heard about this clothing website until this blog post and I LOVE the clothes! So many flattering and beautiful designs! It’s so hard to find clothing that is beautiful and cut right to compliment a plus size figure. I definitely have my eye on a few dresses that I would spend the gift code on : )

  128. Tracy Cooper

    July 15, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    I love IGIGI clothes and for every important event I search them first and usually that’s what I wear. Their clothes are very flattering and have my eye on the Infiniti dress because I know I will turn some heads

    July 15, 2012 at 4:00 pm

    It is so refreshing to see beautiful clothing made to fit plus size women. I discovered Igigi in 2006 when I was desperately trying to find a gown to wear on the beach for my wedding. I will never forget trying on a lovely pale pink “floaty” chiffon overlay gown with beaded bodice in the dressing room and wanting to cry because it made me feel beautiful – and up till that moment nothing had made me feel anything but horrid. Thank you so very much for bringing us beautiful, feminine clothing. Would love the chance to be entered in your giveaway.

  132. Shakira

    July 15, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    Winning a $500 or$250 gift code for IGIGI would be EPIC! I love Yugliya Raquel’s designs because she knows how to make a full figured woman shine; also her clothing is made right in San Francisco, CA a city I enjoy visiting. I love all the Looks in the IGIG Glam guide and I would chose the following dresses; the Tiffany Dress in Hyacinth since I love all colors in the purple family, the Aditi the fuchsia solid top and the sheer patterned bottom make this dress adorable and fashionable at the same time. The Oliana dress is very feminine and has a look of day time glamour and finally the Mariko kimono dress would wrap things up for me with the great contrasting combination of black, green and those white cabbage flowers are sublime. Living in the Valley of the Sun these dresses would have me well on my way to be the best dressed woman at work if I won the $500 gift code. Now if I only won the $250 code then sacrifices would have to be made but I would manage (smile).

    July 15, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    When I saw the Bassa Maxi Dress I just fell in love, it is so beautiful. I would love to wear it before summer is gone =)

  134. Mercedez Reza

    July 15, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE KIYOMI MAXI DRESS, and literally most of the maxi dresses IGIGI designs. The Kiyomi dress was worn by Tulin at the final fashion show of Full Figure fashion week last month. She looked stunning, and I know I can rock that baby in the city. Not only can I turn heads, I could break them after they see me strutting what I have! I love it, IT IS A MUST HAVE.
    please allow me to enjoy a new wardrobe by IGIGI

  135. Heidi Gagne

    July 15, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    The Valencia Maxi Dress is my favorite, it’s just amazingly gorgeous!

  137. Crystal Schaeffer

    July 15, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    I really would love the Yasmina Dress. It has the kind of fit that I love and that would accentuate my curves just the way I like it. Also, I love that it’s very simple yet beautiful.
    It would be great as a day look and very easy to glam it up for a night out.

  138. April Holliman

    July 15, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    The Look that I love would be the Zebra animal print Kiyomi Maxi Dress. I love it because it’s sexy, it’s stylish and there are so many different color accessories you can wear with this dress. There is really no limit to how many looks you can get. You can dress it up or dress it down but either way you will still be the center of attention!

  139. catherine

    July 15, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    I would love to use the gift code to purchase the “From Day to Night” look because I’m always being asked to go out after work and I have very few outfits that can be used for work and play.

  140. Talina Jones

    July 15, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    I love Igigi dresses . The Aditi dress in Camelia Rose is absolutely gorgeous and would love to get that . Being a stay at home mom though , you never prioritize that kind of thing for yourself , you know ?! All the dresses are absolutely gorgeous though ..what a great opportunity . Thanks PMM

  141. Mimi Hood

    July 15, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    I love the IGIGI dress Francesca in Crimson. I stumbled upon this piece when searching for a captains night gown for my cruise. I’ve been lusting after this for a while… That $500 would definitely be spent on this “who is that?!” look. Oh and I’m excited IGIGI is also available on Lane Bryant’s site… (although I loved it as my best kept secret).

  147. Eliza

    July 15, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    With a voucher to spend on IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel I would get myself some perfect pieces so my new wardrobe matches my new life! I’m finally about to finish uni and start a career, and I can’t wait to have some new outfits to match 🙂

  148. Nekkel

    July 15, 2012 at 7:55 pm

  157. Ms. Finley

    July 16, 2012 at 10:02 am

    I fell in love with the Evita dress. It is light and airy. Plus I love flowers and yellow; a winning combination. There’s nothing like feeling pretty when you leave the house. But as I continued to look through the Glam Guide I did a double take when it got to the evening gowns. The Naomi Gown is BEAUTIFUL! The dress is breath taking. Far too often I’ve been let down by the evening gown selections at department stores. Many times the dresses are shapeless, and look way too old. The Naomi Gown is classic elegance. It’s the dress that will make you smile every time you see in hanging in your closet. The dress you feel good in even if you’re having a bad hair day.

    July 18, 2012 at 10:27 am

    If I won the gift code from IGIGI, fingers crossed, honestly I don’t know what I would pick. There are so many amazing choices that would definitely showcase “DaDiva” I am. I know it would be one of the beautiful maxi dresses…I love them all! I especially LOVE the Tropical beauty and the Desert Queen Maxi. But I also like your line of maxi dresses…the catrina, the bassa, the naima and the kiyomi. But, I also love the Rita Vintage it’s just so classic. So if I was one of the Blessed winners, no matter what I chose I would be FABULOUS!

  171. trina orman

    July 18, 2012 at 10:30 am

    If I was lucky enough to win the gift code I would love to spruce up my wardrobe with some of the beautiful dresses shown. As a mother of 2 young children I often put their needs before my own, and being plus size is not cheap, I often can not afford to pay the $60 dollars for a shit or $100 for a dress. It would be nice for me to actually look nice for once, and with the gift code I could!

  172. O

    July 18, 2012 at 10:47 am

    Love the following styles Isabela, Vadela, Mariko, Thelma and Indian Spice. Would love one of each one if I could afford them, maybe one day!!!! Wonderful site and beautiful dresses!!!!!

  173. Caitlin Bergh

    July 18, 2012 at 10:55 am

    If I won I’d finally be able to add some dresses to my wardrobe! Which rarely make an appearance in it, due to their cost and my own silly little insecurities, but these dresses are so gorgeous I’d wear them in a heart beat! Especially in this heat wave!

    July 18, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    If i won a giftgard to igigi I would love to own the birds of paradise gown. I was able to buy a dress years ago from the website for a wedding I was in and i dont think i’ve ever felt so beautiful in a dress. Loved the quality, the fit and the up to date feel that it had. All the other bridesmaids were not plus size and i felt just as pretty in my dress as they were. I know that owning the birds of paradise gown or any piece of clothing from igigi would make me feel amazing

  179. Francine Rodgers

    July 18, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    I am going on a cruise with my sister and finding anything formal enough to wear for formal dinner nights is difficult as most plus size formal wear is very boring or matronly. I would love to wear not only to dinner one night but while romping around any one of our destinations on land!

    If I were lucky enough to win the gift code I would put it to great use trust me :). I would for sure go for the Kelsey Wrap Dress since it wouldn’t make me seem to short and I would be able wear flats or dress it up with jewelry and heels. I would also completely love the Kiyomo Maxi Dress i love this dress style they are just beautiful. This will give me something in my arsenal to be able to go out on dates and go to work in style.

    I find it difficult to choose between all of Your wonderfull looks. However today i choose the Grace Kelly look.
    If I won a gift certificate, i would buy a kelly dress or one like it, that was work appropriate. It is a beautifull style and i am confident that it will suit my shape. I would wear that dress for work interviews to boost my confidence and land the perfect job.

    Oh wow…I love Yuliya’s beautiful creations. The models look like goddesses!

    With the $500 I would get the Justine Lace Dress in Deep Orchid, Renata Dress in Deep Fuchsia, Yasmina Dress, Nicole Dress in Berry and the Lempika Dress.

    I am hooked on these dresses! Where have I been? My girlfriend called me and told me that I had to go to this website because FINALLY someone was representing us plus-sized divas to the fullest, and I was a little skeptical. Well, my skepticism was quickly banished even when I saw the first dress. I am so excited and would LOVE to win the sweepstakes!!

    I love the Fashions that I saw. I am so glad that real women with plus size bodies are being celebrated instead of shunned and made fun of. Thank you for celebrating us who refuse to be anorexic or bulemic to be accepted in today’s society!

    I would not mind wearing this outfit, and as well fir most of the business casual clothing. I really would like to win because i have been through a lot and so has everyone else, i put myself last and I am putting myself through school. I am going for my BA in Business, because I am a plus size woman it is hard for me to find good business clothing wear. I would love to feel beautiful in something that fits my curves correctly. Good luck to everyone ????

    If I were to win either of the gift codes, It would allow me to finally be able to experience the beauty and quality of an Igigi garment first hand. I’d prefer the Ali Dress in Red. the Garbo gown, the Kali Tropical Flower Tunic, and the Angie and Lanai dresses as well!

  191. Allanah

    July 22, 2012 at 8:07 am

    I looooove everything on this website even on the sales rack haha, it’s exactly how I see myself dressing up for everyday. Although I love elegant dresses as these, I do like to be comfy and feminine at the same time, so I’d go with the Angie Dress in Olive, such a beautiful color <3 🙂

    Is it sad that I have never owned a maxi dress? They are so in style now and have been instyle many times in the past, yet I have never owned one. Additionally, I’m trying to redo my wardrobe in brighter colors. Yes, black looks great on everyone, and tends to hide the parts I don’t like, but seriously, how long can a lady survive only wearing black??? A shopping spree would definitely help me out to be a little braver in variety.

    We’re having a formal ball in three weeks that I’ve been saving for a dress for… if I were to win, I’d buy a gorgeous formal dress. Then I’d spend the rest on dazzling work wear to make all of my plus sized friends green with envy… until I told reminded them about the wonderful Igigi. 🙂

    I would use the gift code to purchase a beautiful evening gown for my husband’s upcoming Military Ball. The gowns at the department stores never fit right and I always have to have them altered. I have been looking at Igigi dresses for months now and can’t make a decision, I LOVE them ALL. Igigi designs their gowns to fit a REAL curvy woman.

    Four months ago I married my bestfriend & we are now pinching pennies so we can fly to Scotland for our anniversary next year. He has family there, some that I have never met. I would love to look/feel my best during our time there. I think your Vadela Wrap Dress would be the perfect dress to do just that. Just sexy & sassy enough to make you feel beautiful but still comfortable. 🙂 I might have to get the Millie Vintage Polka Dot Dress too. Love that look… It would be perfect for our anniversary dinner, since our wedding was a 50s theme. 🙂

    I love the Garbo Gown. I’ve been a stay at home mom for 4 years to my precious little boy, Ayden. My wardrobe currently consists of sweat pants & tee shirts. My husband, who works full time, bless him, has more clothes than me LOL. I would love to win a code & treat myself to something special from Igigi. Thank you.

    :UPDATED: Stella Gown. My reason as to why I wish to be considered for winning this dress, is because I have recently become homeless. I am able to access the internet on my phone using free wifi- shhh lol. Im keep my spirit up best I can with my motto Ill be fine. I only have the bare essentials and would be truely blessed to win. I know there are more deserving canidates = being a at home mom and wanting to feel like a beautiful women and I wish you could give out more dresses and clothing pieces. However it is a bit of a contest and nothing is better than honesty. All the best, and good luck in finding someone you see fit!

    There are so many great dresses from IGIGI. She’s my favorite designer for all things plus size. My current favorites from IGIGI are the Isabela Wrap Dress and the Katelyn Dress. But, if I was to win one of the gift codes, I would splurge on myself like never before. As a plus size woman in a skinny girl world, I always feel like I want to set the standard of dress as high as possible in my work life. I want to let everyone know that just because I’m plus sized that I don’t have to sacrifice style and glam. Thanks a bunch for this opportunity.

    I love all of the dresses including the evening and cocktail ones and tops the best!
    I love the rich jewel and gem stone colors and the styles and shapes that are gathered, ruched, draped and hug very snugly to the body!
    Some of the designs remind me of the very best of the 1930s through all fashion eras to today’s styles!

    The Cassandra Infinity Gown’s beauty is beyond measurable, it is the drama of beauty! I love this work of art. It’s ability to transform into the Gown of the event you need is remarkable! I love, LOVE it! I think if I won this contest I would display this peace of art and it’s beauty as an advertisement of Passion and Fire because I love it so much. I would be beyond determined to get this dress! Also it would help me to afford this dress and not have any complaints from my husband!
