A teenage girl named Elyse Monroe drove almost six hours to a plus-size dress shop as she wanted to buy a prom dress for herself and was left overwhelmed by the shop owner’s great act of kindness when she gave her dreamy dress free of cost to her.
18-year-old Elyse drive from Manteo to Charlotte just to meet the owner of the plus-size-only boutique owner, Juicy Body Goddess named Summer Lucille. She first saw her store on TikTok while watching her live-streamed consultation.

“When she got into that purple dress, she lit up,” In one of her interviews Lucille said to the PEOPLE, “I couldn’t let her walk out of that store without that dress.”
As per the publication, “At the very start of the consultation, Lucille’s store manager came to her and said that the kinds of dresses the student was interested in would be more expensive than that. The store owner’s response? “It’ll work itself out.”
“They drove six hours,” Summer said to her manager. “Don’t worry about the budget, we’ll figure it out.”
The shop owner, Lucille who records most of her consultations video to shares them on her TikTok, revealed that during her that one live streaming, her one follower said that they wanted to chip in the rest amount of $200 to pay for her dress.
“At that moment, I knew that was the universe telling me, just give her the dress,” Lucille also added. “That follower was just an angel just reminding me that just you have to give.”
“I went in and the mom and the aunties kept asking, ‘How much is this dress?’” while recalling she said. “I said, ‘Well, we’ll worry about the price when we get to the register.’”
