You've all gone mad for our collection with Scouse Bird Problems so we have created some Christmas jumpers that will take your Christmas Jumper Day to the next level! In true Scouse style, Steph B has come up with witty and funny slogans that will help you celebrate Christmas in style. We have a design for everyone from fake tan fans to party go-ers and each of the designs come in either Snow White, Fairy Pink or Christmas Tree Green. These aren't just tacky Christmas Jumper that can be worn for one day, we have added a bit of sparkle so you can wear them all december. Check out the designs below.
Due the success of our Scouse Bird Collection we have now launched all your favourite designs in hoodies and if thats not exciting enough we they are in rose gold and to add we have done a 'Ermagherd Rerse Gerld' Hoodie for all the Rose Gold Fans out there. As per the original collection we have catered for sizes 8 - 28. All of the collection is also available from the Scouse Bird Blogs Shop at thesassybird.com

The Curve Fashion Festival 2017
Below is a picture of our stand. We have to thank the Celtic Curves girls for doing a photoshoot in our tops so we could use the pictures on the stand! They all look so fab!
On the day we got to meet alot of lovely people and introduce ourselves to people who haven’t heard of OBD. Our Adele Hello Its Me Jumper went down a storm and sold pretty quickly! If you have one and haven’t already tagged us in a picture then we would love to see you in yours!
On the day we got some great pictures with our slogan boards you can see some below and the rest can be see on our facebook page.
We received some great feedback on the day, with a lot of people asking about vest tops, we are looking into this and will hopefully be able to extend our vest range sizes in the near future. For those that don’t know even though are plus size range is t-shirts and a lot of people find t-shirts too hot to workout in, ours are designed to breathable and any sweat is wicked away before you notice is. They are made from 100% polyester and have tiny little holes in the material which is what makes them great for working out in. We really enjoyed this years fashion festival and we have been really busy since. From the catwalks to the prosecco on tap the day was one day that can’t be missed, bring on 2018!
Face of OBD Curves
As well as having a stand at this years Curve Fashion Festival we also held the final of Face of OBD Curves Competition. We have 3 of our finalists with the top likes on their entry, come along to the festival so we could meet them, give them a model makeover and find out why they should become the Face of OBD Curves. We have to be honest all the girls were so fab it wasn’t an easy decision. Here is our three finalists after we got them in our tops and give them a makeover.
The day started with pizza and Prosecco for our lovely girls and then once each of them had their hair and makeup done we took pictures of them with our slogan boards, this was to help us see who was most confident and photogenic. Over the day we got to know the girls personally, this was another stage in helping us to decide who should be the face. In the afternoon we then got all the girls on stage and asked them why they think they should become the face of the brand. To us this is very important, we wanted someone who was just as passionate about our brand as us. All the girls gave great speeches which you can watch here.
After much deliberation between quite a few of use we then decided on a winner which was Becca Turner! Check out the action shot of when we announced she won below. You will now see Becca all over our website looking fab in our gym clothes! We recently did a shoot with her and she worked so hard and we couldn’t be happier with her being the face of our brand.
We really enjoyed running this competition this year and getting to know some fab people and can’t wait to run the same competition next year.
We’re a born and bred Mancunian brand and we are so very proud of how Manchester stood up and supported each other after the recent terrible attack. The strength, community and power of the people we call neighbours came together that night and ever since to show how strong and resilient we are. Because of that, we wanted to show our support for our hometown and help those affected by the tragedy. We want everyone to make a statement, stand up for what’s right and #BEESTRONG.
We have designed a #BEESTRONG collection to support the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund. Charity Registration no. 220949 (England and Wales) and SC037738 (Scotland). Each top is made to order and £4.00 from each sale will go to the charity.
The #BEESTRONG design is available in a women’s vest top (size 10-16) and is made from 100% pure cotton. It contours to the body and is available in black or white along with the slogan available in a variety of colours.
We’ve also designed a #BEESTRONG unisex t-shirt for men and women (Size Small – 5XL). With a taped neck and shoulders along with being quarter-turned to eliminate crease. This is also available in black and white.
The Bee has become the symbol of Manchester. It’s always represented the hard work of Mancunians. During the industrial revolution, textile mills were described as hives of activity and the workers inside them compared to bees. Now the emblem means so much more and we’re proud to include it in our design. We didn’t want to just watch people support Manchester, we actively wanted to support and get involved.
We’d love you to support the charity and to make it even easier for you; we’re offering £1.00 delivery on all Manchester Bee products with code “BEESTRONG”
Thanks for your support. Manchester we love you.
You’ll probably know by now that we recently launched our OBD Curves collection, and we are super excited about it. We’ve already had some great feedback and taken lots of things on board for our next drop. In fact, we’re so excited about the range that we’re heading to The Curve Fashion Festival 2017.
The Curve Fashion Festival is in its third year and is the UK’s largest plus size fashion event. This year it’s being held at the Exhibition Centre, Liverpool on the 9th September 2017. Full of celebrities, top bloggers, catwalks and a host of surprises on the day it’s going to be pretty epic. The 2016 event saw the likes of Holly Hagan, Tess Holliday, Gemma Collins and Hayley Hasselhoff all in attendance. It’s a place for you to check out the best brands, the latest trends and celebrate body confidence. It’s definitely right up our street.
At this years festival, we’ll be sharing our new designs and asking for your feedback. Basically, making a big statement, just like our clothing! We can’t wait for you to see the great quality of our plus sized customised slogan clothing in person. We know what’s important to women when shopping. Being able to see and feel the fabrics is always a good thing. So is being able to check out the cuts and looking at the clothing in person. Showcasing our pieces to you at #TCFF means we can take you through all the designs, who we are and what we’re about. It really is exciting!. By the way, we love a good chat too?
Plus, as a little exclusive, we might have something special planned leading up to the event. We don’t want to give away too much for now, but stay tuned to our social for all the latest news and announcements.

It’s official, we’re here: welcome to the OBD blog! We’ve had so much happening lately we thought we needed somewhere to let you know what’s been going on behind the scenes and what’s new with us. First up, a new website! That’s right! A brand new fresh website launch. We’ve made it easier for you to see all the customised slogan clothing we have on offer. It’s now easier to browse through our entire product catalogue or use our dropdowns, if you want to be a little more specific. We’ve categorised our gymwear and apparel so you can get to what you want quicker.
As all of our shirts are manufactured on special requests, we thought you might have some urgent questions you need answering. Now you can send us a live instant message directly through the website. Isn’t technology fabulous?
Along with the new website, we’ve been working on something exciting behind the scenes. We’re happy to announce our new OBD Curves collection. With a selection of plus size gymwear and other customised slogan clothing available – up to a size 28 – we want women of all sizes to have great fitting, fun and affordable gym wear. We’re working hard on expanding all the products to a size 28 too. Check out our hashtag for the new collection #OBDcurves and to keep up to date with our new product releases. We’ve extended some of the standard collection and created some new slogans for the curve range too. We’re called Outspoken by Design for a reason.
For those that don’t know, we’re a Manchester-based clothing brand focused on bringing you made to order slogan tees & vests in 100’s of styles. From ‘What the Squat!’ to ‘For Quad Sake’. We like to think we’re adding a little humour and a lot of style to your workout routine. Have an idea for a slogan? Get in touch. On that note, stay tuned for a big announcement coming soon. You might be doing more than wearing our brand in the coming weeks. We love to hold the suspense!
