Size doesn’t matter

At Cleverbird there are no tape measures to be seen and certainly no scales.  All women have their own individual beauty.  Your size and shape are unique to you.  Choose the correct styles and colours for you and start to celebrate yourself.

Effortless style is not about squeezing into a size 12,14,10 or whatever, it is about wearing clothes that sit beautifully on your shape, not too tight and not too loose.  You should be able to fit a finger underneath a waistband, a zip should lie flat and side seams should hang straight with no horizontal creases.  If your bust is on the larger side it is important to accommodate it and ensure there is no pulling around this area on jackets, blouses and dresses.

If you enjoy a close fitting look then, by all means, embrace it but take care to notice that you stay on the right side of alluring!  It is often said that skirts and trousers should hang straight from the buttocks but if you have a gorgeous round derriere why not accentuate it? – make it a feature.  Some rules are meant to be broken….

If you are a gorgeous pear/triangle shape be aware that you may have to buy a larger size on the bottom than on the top.  In actual fact it is important for every woman not to get too attached to a certain size.  Sizes in shops vary tremendously.  What might be a 10 in one shop could fit like an 8 in another.

Forget the importance of shop sizing and, infact, cut out the size tag if you must when you get home!  Happy, carefree, size-free shopping!

Welcome to Clever Bird

Taking time to recognise  the colours for you and pinpointing your body shape puts you on the path to effortless shopping and wardrobe contentment.  Once you take on board that ‘less is more’ and disregard the notion that ‘bargains must be snapped up’ you will begin to enjoy shopping and feeling content that your purchases are well chosen and thus ‘value for money’.

Your wardrobe will indeed have less in it but each item will have a well-earned place.  If chosen with care and maintained with equally as much dedication a piece of clothing can be a joy forever.
