ABOUT VELVET BIRDCAGE
Finding a well fitted flattering dress, can be like trying to find the holy grail. We believe that Velvet Birdcage might just be the grail! We don't want you to find a nice dress that makes you feel okay, we want you to find an amazing dress that makes you feel fabulous. We can find a dress for any size or shape. We have customers size 2 to 32, small boobs, large ones, slim Jim's to curvy girls.We want you to feel totally comfortable with everything from the style of dress, to the size and price.
Some customers have an exact idea of what they're looking for, some don't. We can give advice on styles that will match a certain theme or that would be appropriate for a particular event, dresses that will suit certain body shapes, colour's and fabrics that flatter, etc. You can also tell us to be quiet!
So what goes on while you're here?
First of all, we offer a totally relaxed, totally non intimidating, non pressured environment. We'll discuss what style you're looking for; traditional, funky, classic, sexy, vintage, etc. The length, colour, fabric and budget. Then leave you to look at the dresses and pick out anything you'd like to try on. We also select the dresses that we think will work. We then start the process of elimination. We can often change fabrics, add straps, shorten or lengthen etc. You can also chose the top of one dress and the bottom of another.
If you've found a dress you like, we go through the colour charts, then measure your bust, waist and hips (fully clothed and in private!). At this point we can go on to discuss size, delivery time, and take a 50% cash or cheaque deposit. Or leave you to go away and think about it. Taking your measurements makes sense, as it means you can order later without having to make another appointment - which we're always happy to do, but it may not be convenient for you and your party.
Everything is up front and clear. The price, sizes available, delivery times, and available colour's are printed on the labels.
We have fun with our customers, no hard-sell! Our aim is to make our customers feel special and your order is of paramount importance to us.
Our dresses are not made in-house. Dresses are designed, finished & altered in-house.
