I follow several plus size models and companies on Facebook and Twitter, but there is one young lady so passionate about what she does and it really stood out for me. That gorgeous girl is Beth Leggett from Butterfly Online. She supported me relentlessly throughout Star In A Bra and is constantly promoting her brand on her Facebook page by creating amazing competitions and giveaways. She sells some exquisitely gorgeous plus size clothes and accessories and with an attitude and mindset like hers she should and will go far!
I recently decided to purchase some items from her. Due to her popularity not everything was available in the sizes I was after and so after messaging back and forth for a bit she helpfully sent me items in an 18, 20 and 22 so that I could compare.
The parcel arrived very swiftly and when I opened it the first thing that hit me was the gorgeous scent of the amazing new clothes! It was like they had been bathed in a gorgeous floral perfume and I couldn’t stop sniffing the clothes, wrong as that may sound!
The first thing I tried on was the size 22 top – however, as it was so big for me it was more like a tunic and after being frustrated at the way it looked with jeggings I tried it on with thick black tights and heels – and wow, I seem to have another going out outfit!
In a size 16/18 this would be perfect as a top but as it is I am very happy with it. It would be great for any top heavy lovelies as the zig zag hem and floaty material would balance out a fuller bust. It did come with a sash but you know me…my belt collection does like to get an airing!
Next I tried on this size 20 dress.
It was a near perfect empire line fit under my bust but…you guessed it, I preferred it with a belt! It is such a gorgeous girly dress and is modest up top whilst showing off the old legs! A great balance and not only perfect for a night out, but fabulously versatile enough for a day dress too.
And last but not least…my favourite dress, size 18:
This stunning floral shirt dress was a perfect fit across the bust – almost unheard of for a size 18 item! It comes with a tie but…need I explain how I accessorised it?! The gorgeous full skirt made me feel so girly and I can see me teaming this with tights, boots and a jacket and wearing it to death this winter!
All in all it was a successful haul from Butterfly Online and I am so pleased to find another company that seems to be more generous around the bust. There are a fair few deals on at the moment so why not check out what’s in stock
