Review + Giveaway: Thread and Butter

Whenever a new plus size clothing line comes on the market, I get super excited. A few months back, I saw a new company, Thread & Butter and was intrigued. I noticed they had a knit sweater that looked so easy, comfortable, and airy.

Thread & Butter $250 giveaway from Skinny Emmie

I hadn’t seen any plus items like this before. It looked like a fine knit casual sweater from the beaches of California (I’m looking at you, C&C California – I’ve wanted you do to plus for so long), and I knew I had to try it to see if it was anything like I imagined from a comfort perspective. Thankfully, the Adrian Sweater didn’t disappoint!

    The Marc wrap dress. Love it. (One thing, though: I notice that they don’t provide actual measurements on their site’s sizing chart, which is a real problem! A plus retailer ought to know that just saying a 2x is an 18/20 isn’t enough to help their customer base get their sizes right.)
