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.

Worth It

I was hesitant because this is out of my normal price range (yes, I'm the person who will find $5 shirts on the sales rack), but I just got a new job so I figured I'd treat myself. WORTH IT!!!

Its cute and fits well and I love how I look, and OF COURSE, I love that I dont need to wear a damn bra with it~~💕

Absolutely incredible

I really love the pockets, the style of the dress, the attention to detail, and the way it makes me feel too. The only thing I don’t like(and this could just be my experience) is the zipper. The placement makes the hoop thing difficult to use. That is all.

all-around winner

This dress fits and feels great! The dress gives your boobs all of the pros of a bra without the cons. The fabric looks and feels high quality. It could really be worn to so many different occasions, easily dressed up or dressed down. Nice enough for a wedding, but also good for just a day running around town when you want to look cute doing it. Five stars all around.

Perfect fit, super flattering

Saw this on TikTok and figured I’d give it a shot because it seemed like a super cool company to endorse. Also it had pockets and I can’t not buy dresses with pockets. This dress even gives me cleavage with my side set boobs, something I rarely even get with a bra. I felt secure and so confident in the dress. Worth every penny. I can’t wait to have somewhere to wear it!

Excellent

The Charlee dress fit like it was tailored just for me. No bra needed since it's built in beautifully. The addition of pockets is the icing on the cake!
