  • THE STORY

    I searched high and low for my perfect dress. Visited numerous shops and tried on many, many dresses. But I FINALLY found THE DRESS!

    This dress was the perfect fit for my wedding! Now happily married, I look back at pictures and think of the memories, and truly feel beautiful when reminiscing. If you are a plus-size bride seeking something other than an over the top, poofy ball gown, you are most likely well aware that our selection is truly limited, and it’s very difficult to find something age appropriate in many cases, too. I wanted something vintage and classy, something a little different but not too unusual, and something that would help me feel most comfortable and confident on my wedding day. This was it!

    The dress is designed by Yuliya Raquel, who is best known for her collections for Igigi.com. Here is a link to the dress which I purchased new:

    This dress is a rare combination of comfortable and gorgeous–hard to find in a wedding dress! It is floor-length with a beautiful scalloped edge, empire waist, has a lacy mesh overlay with matte sequins, features a zipper back, has a sewn in pearly sash, and to finish it off the nice touch of a lace applique on the sash. Please note I did alter the dress, and details regarding alterations can be found in the specific alterations section.

    Above all else, this is a dress that I ordered online, kind of on a whim, and fell in love with instantly. The soft material looks expensive, but is extremely comfy. The sequins sparkle under reception lighting, adding that extra touch. But most of all, I felt gorgeous and was complimented by everyone on how beautiful I looked. I didn’t just receive “You looking stunning!” type compliments, but I could see on the faces of my friends and family that the dress was a show stopper, and a true winner.

  • ALTERATIONS

    I did have a few alterations done. The length was a big thing...I am 5'4" with shorter legs and a longer torso. The length was wayyyy too long originally, but my alterations goddess (she is pretty amazing!) took the dress up from the empire waist, to preserve the scalloped edge detail. Please note about 6" to 8" or so was removed. But as shared in Igigi's reviews, it seems most buyers needed the dress length altered, too. The gown did come with a more gold sash as pictured on Igigi's website, however, with my accessories and shoes alterations suggested a more pearly sash. The new sash truly compliments the sequins in the lacy mesh overlay. Alterations had the new sash sewn in for convenience, so it isn't necessary to fumble with a sash on the big day. Using an applique from the hemmed material, alterations used this to cover the know of the sash, and the lace, sequin flower applique pulls the whole look together. I feel the alterations were not necessarily custom to my taste, but more so some essential tweaks that helped the dress really stand out on my big day, and will make you do so too!

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress was stored in the original long garment bag from the wedding night to its current state. But okay...sometimes I unzip the bag just to peek at it every so often.
