Fabric covers our bodies for at least 23 hours a day -- that is, unless you live in a nudist colony or love being in the nude, I'm not here to judge you, just give you the latest scoop on what's going on in the world of shopping and things in style. Seeing the way a fabric clings to someone or flows in the breeze is key to making sure the item is safe to order online, but typically that opportunity is just a dream. With the amount of video going around now - things are changing!

Igigi.com is the website to showcase clothing in the plus size world, via video! If you have trouble finding the right size, don't let people judge you! Shop from home for everything on Igigi.com from prom to bridal and work wear -- this site covers all those difficult to slide to bases with the click of your mouse. A multi-topic blog space also allows shoppers to feel more comfortable in this realm of finding the perfect outfit. The nifty shape calculator adds up the numbers from your shoulders to your hips to find the correct size without reordering 3 times. And all of this is topped off by the video options to watch the clothing in real life. Seems like reality TV has finally made some positive impact on the world -- us fashionistas are actually having our own private go-sees with the clothing before even opening the box.
“We have always felt that we needed something more than a two-dimensional photo to truly convey how the garment will fit and flatter our curvaceous customers,” says Igigi’s designer, Yuliya Zeltser. “Now you can see the way the fabric moves and flows on the body. It’s the closest thing possible to trying the clothing on, only you never have to leave your house!” Over 30 videos of the clothing on Igigi.com's site will also be a great sales tool for the range of sizes, 12-32 to get out the door for each season. While I agree that this video will help your online sales on your credit card skyrocket, there's nothing like trying on the clothes, so start ordering!
