Winning Style: Carissa Rose Dress Shirts for the Full Bust (Giveaway)

 

cr_logo

Closed – Congratulations to commenter #366 - Lexiquin 

Every woman needs this staple in her closet:  The classic white dress shirt.  It’s probably one of the most versatile pieces to have in your wardrobe.  You can pair it with jeans and pearls for that preppy casual look, or dress it up with slacks and a blazer for a more formal appearance.

But many women like me dread the the button down dress shirt.  Why?  Because if you have a chest, you’ll have a big ugly gap there.  I am delighted to have discovered Carissa Rose, a clothing line dedicated to fitting the woman’s full bust.

It’s about time someone recognized the need in the marketplace for clothing that nicely fits well-endowed women.  Sure, anyone can buy a larger shirt that won’t gap.  But then you end up wearing a huge tent over your torso.  Carissa Rose tops and dresses are tailored to fit and flatter the bust and waistline.

The key to preventing the gaping and pulling is the hidden hook and eye closure at the front: 

hookNow you see it.          Now you don’t

Thank goodness – there will be no more ugly gaps to contend with.  When you don’t have to worry about fit, shirt shopping is easy, and even fun!

009After trying the Carissa shirt, I realized that the deep V neckline wasn’t right for me.  Fortunately, the company was nice enough to let me exchange it for the Irina Princess Seam Shirt.  The Irina shirt fits like a glove; it’s perfect.  It has a Y shaped neckline with seaming on the front and back to provide a tailored fit, and therefore a slimming effect.  The turn back cocktail cuffs add a fun flair to the entire look.

Carissa Rose even offers a money-back guarantee if you’re not happy.  But you will be.  I can’t wait to add more Carissa Rose pieces to my wardrobe.
