Check It Out! Carissa Rose

Since the launch of A Working Mom's Closet, I've been contacted by several companies asking that their services and/or products be promoted to my readers. For those that have been following diligently, you may have noticed that I've had yet to feature a store, company or designer.

The reason is because I know your time is valuable. I appreciate the time you take to read the blog in the first place and for those of you that comment and/or email, to take that extra time out as well. I don't want to waste your time, so I try to comb through and review all offers and requests to ensure that they are what I would consider worthwhile to you, the readers.

With that being said, I bring to you my very first Check It Out! feature! I'd like to introduce you all to Carissa Brown, the designer behind Carissa Rose. Carissa designs a line of tops and dresses targeted specifically to women sizes 4 - 18 with D+ bustlines. She is also a mom to four children so she understands that funtionality is key!

If you've never heard of Carissa Rose, please take a look at her designs! She is so incredibly talented and I am in love with so many of her pieces.

Some of my favorites are this tunic and this pencil dress. Some of her favorites are below:

Norah Tunic - also one of my favorites!
Katerina Shirtdress

All of her pieces are so well-made and will flatter those of us who have a little extra in our bustline! Carissa also has a video demonstrating what the correct fit can do to flatter your proportions. To watch, click here.

Even if you aren't busty yourself, you probably know someone who is and who doesn't feel comfortable in most of their clothing. Introduce them to Carissa Rose!

Carissa has kindly offered my readers a 20% discount on any purchase from today through January 2nd. What a great way to ring in the new year, by treating yourself or a friend to a spectacular piece that will flatter like nothing else!

To take advantage of this offer, just enter the code WORKINGMOMS20.

I hope you enjoy browsing and shopping at Carissa Rose! I certainly did and would like to thank Carissa for her reader discount and creating such lovely pieces!

Have a great day, my friends!


  1. Her clothes look great! I wish she had more selection, but I am sure that will come with time. :)

  2. I love the idea behind her designs, especially because I am short and busty :)
    I will definitely pass this along to some of my other well-endowed friends :)

  3. I saw the creator and her designs on the show Homemade Millionaire ( While my girls don't have the issue of fitting in "normal" tops I know plenty of woman that do. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I will check her site out. I wish I didn't spend my Christmas money already.

  5. Thanks so much for featuring this retailer. I'm a bit top heavy and it's sometimes difficult to find a flattering fit from standard retailers.

  6. I think this designer is addressing a common issue with great style. She is needed in the industry.
    I hope you will take the time to enter the contest at my site! I am giving away a fabulous necklace!!

  7. Thank you!! I have never heard of her clothing line - I stopped searching years ago and learned to stay away from most button-ups and the like. I guess I have just learned to live with having an ample chest. This is the biggest issue I have when buying clothes - nothing fits my waist and my bust. Thank you!! I am going to go check her out right now!!
