Call off the search for that looks-good-on-everyone dress. This is it. The Charlee may be mini, but she delivers big on comfort, style, and support. Her A-line skirt fits just right in the hips and has every girl’s fave: pockets. Jackpot. A playful, ruched bust allows for some room to grow while the stylish, shirred back expands to fit you (and your rib cage) perfectly. Plus, the thicker straps do all the heavy lifting.

Its stunning and I feel so secure in it!

This dress is everything I’ve been searching for in a LBD! I have a pretty big bust but a small waist so I went with a XL|L, and it is the first dress I’ve owned that actually fits me. Came super fast and I want to live in it. My breasts feel supported and I feel pretty which is all I can really ask for. Great purchase, and a sturdy fabric so I feel confident I will get years of use out of it.

I’m in love with this dress

I’m really impressed with this dress. The chest is very supportive and the stretchy panel in the back allows for a more comfortable fit. It fit like a glove, and I’m so excited to wear it! My only complaint is the side zipper was difficult to zip because of it’s location, and I needed someone else to help me.

The Best Dress Ever

I do not have enough good things to say about this dress. It is absolutely perfect in every way. It's extremely supportive, made of the highest quality material, and just genuinely looks incredible on.

My favorite part of this dress is the fit. I put it on and it felt like it was made for me. The shirring in the back allows for a variety of different body sizes and the material has a bit of stretch while still being firm. It is so flattering and gave me an hourglass shape. Plus, it has pockets!

I will not stop raving about this dress. It is 100% worth every penny. Above all, it makes me feel beautiful, which is exactly what a dress should do. You will not regret purchasing this dress!

Could this dress be any cuter?

I love the Charlee so so much! I got it in white and feel tan and adorable when I wear it! The material is super comfy and looks so nice!
