Carissa Rose Clothing Fitting the Female Form - Reivew (And a giveaway) Item of Choice ARV $165!

About Carissa Rose (From the Website)

Carissa Rose Brown, the founder of the Carissa Rose clothing line, began sketching her own designs at the young age of 11. For years, Carissa and her mother, Helene Rose, would collaborate on creating unique and feminine styles that flattered the female form.

Approximately 20 years and three children later, Carissa began to have her shirts custom made, specifically with the hook-and-eye closure. With hook-and-eye closures, her shirts fit smoothly around the bust line - no gaps; no pulls; no holes. During Carissa’s fourth pregnancy in 2007, she launched the Carissa Rose line honoring her mother who unexpectedly passed away from an aneurism in her sleep.  After several months of grieving her mother’s loss, Carissa found inspiration and began to pursue her dream of launching a clothing line that offered various bust proportions in high-quality fabrics and clean and tailored styles that fit the female form.

CARISSA ROSE is the premier online fashion retailer specializing in fitting the female form.
Our exclusive designs and shape focused sizing system offer the style-savvy shopper exactly what she wants – pure fashion, personal style, and fabulous fit.
Since launching in November 2008, CARISSA ROSE has successfully established itself as a leading brand, with impeccable customer service and unrivaled quality.

My Review:
So what is the "female form"? Well to me it is curves in all the right places. I have finally found someone who agrees with me Carissa Rose.

I like wearing dresses, wearing them out or to work it doesn’t matter I like to wear them. I have a problem though, I’m a little more ample up top than the norm and that makes it difficult to find dresses that fit properly. I’m always trying dresses on and coming out of the changing room with a frown on my face having my hopes squashed again. I had the chance to try a dress from Carissa Rose ( they specialize in making clothes to fit the female form, which means they have clothes to fit us that are well…..ample.

I received the Tara dress ( and couldn’t wait to try it on to see if it could be possible to have a stylish dress that was cut correctly and looked good on me.  I tried it on and was blown away at how well it was structured, made and the fit was amazing! It flattered my chest and didn’t make me look frumpy, or make me look like I was cut in half, this dress was really flattering. It has shape and structure and just wasn’t a boxy dress that was blah. I wore this to work and got so many complements, saying how great I looked , and that they loved the dress. And the best thing of it all is that it’s essentially a wash and wear dress, it can be washed, no need for a trip to the dry cleaners!

The Tara dress is $155.00, but you get what you pay for, if you’re like me and have trouble finding clothes to fit around a body type spend the money, it’s worth it, finally we can have clothes that are contemporary and figure flattering all at the same time.

Tare-Fit-and-Flare dress - 
Our exquisitely structured tropical twill dress strikes the perfect balance between powerful and flirty.  The collar and cuffs lend authority, while the knotted waist and gored skirt give it a light heartedness.  Definitely a twirlly skirt!
