Owner Lisa “Lee Lee” Dolan named this plus-size clothing store after her childhood suitcase, which she used to fill with her favorite clothes and toys for family vacations. In May 2007, Dolan opened this shop to house her new favorite clothing and accessories. A size 18 herself, she specializes in womenswear ranging from size 10 to 28. Vintage furniture upholstered with damask prints and several black chandeliers give the store the feel of a boudoir, and Dolan finds that first-time shoppers often spend hours sifting through the colorful, flirty selection because they’re not used to finding clothes that fit them in boutiques. Women travel in from the other boroughs and occasionally from outside the state to pick up high-end dresses and tops from Tadashi and Anna Scholz, denim by Jessica Svoboda, and even bridesmaid dresses. And Dolan fits women for Prima Donna bras up to size 46H.
