"Leota is for everything you maybe never thought you would do in a dress." - Sarah Carson, Founder of Leota

Empowerment, Femininity and Optimism are some of the ideals that Sarah Carson, founder of Leota instilled in her Body Positive brand. From the dining room table of her NYC apartment, a leading brand in female fashion was born. Frustrated with the uncomfortable and masculine details of corporate attire, Sarah believed women should be seen as powerful and professional without having to compromise comfort and style. Every Leota dress is designed by women, for women, to flatter a range of body types with the perfect amount of pretty and practical. Sarah believes a woman can do anything in a dress, no matter her shape, size or color. Confidence and self love can make all the difference. 

Exclusive LEOTA x WOMAMBOSS Collaboration dresses are available to shop only on WOMANBOSS. 10% of sales will be donated to the Movemeant Foundation that focuses on empowering women to build confidence and self-worth through exercise.
