New checkout!

We have just added a new way to pay! For *ever* we have just used PayPal to process debit and credit card payments and with eBay's move to their own system and having had a few technical glitches with our webstore and PayPal not talking to each other nicely, you can now enter card details at checkout via Stripe.  Safe, secure, same buyer protection because you are buying from us, and we're just waiting for you to try it out...

New stock arrivals

Somehow the last year or so it hasn't felt quite right to get our lovely seamstresses to make pretty things for the summer, for festivals, for parties, for treating ourselves and 'just because' - when many of us have spent a lot of time mainly at home in PJs, and the postal services were so busy with getting essentials out to those who couldn't venture beyond their front doors, and let's face it, funds have been tight for many. ...

New webstore!

It's been overdue a while now, we've finally had a complete overhaul and hope that you will find our new store so much easier to navigate on whichever device you use. If you've shopped before, you won't be able to access an old account - if you need any help, just let us know.

New Premises, new opportunities!

After a very happy 3½ years at York Eco Business Centre, we decided it was time to find a new home for Swirl Clothing. There were a couple of false starts, but it's ended up with being 3rd time very lucky! We are now based just outside York city centre, in the village suburb of Heworth. New Swirl HQ is not a shop as such, but we are pleased to welcome visitors by appointment (please use the "contact us" link, or...

Postage Changes

Why we no longer offer "Express Delivery" Here at Swirl Clothing, we ship orders as quickly as we can, and we usually ship 3 times a week.  Most UK purchases are sent by Royal Mail's 1st class recorded service, and tracking our parcels shows that nearly everything we send is delivered the next day.  Large orders are usually sent by 48 hour courier. We used to offer a premium "Express" service, but have removed it from our P&P options for...

No zeros, plentiful curves!

Here at Swirl we’ve seen recent press (for example the Guardian, Glamour magazine and Gok Wan’s How to Look Good Naked) about model sizes, after a size 14 \o/ was seen on the catwalk at London Fashion Week and thought we should tell you more about who you see wearing Swirl Clothes.
