Try on sunglasses wherever you are

Virtual Try-on has Arrived

Finding the right pair of sunglasses can feel like a never ending struggle, whether your browsing in store with a limited selection, or sifting through the endless selections of shades online. We decided to change the way people buy sunglasses by making the whole process a little easier.

The launch of our new augmented reality try-on service means you now have the ability to check out which style of sunglasses suits your face shape, without ever leaving the comfort of your couch. This unique innovation allows you to try the frames using either your phone or computer, and all you need to do is make sure the lighting is good, scoop your hair back and relax your jaw (this reveals your true face shape) before virtually trying on whichever pair of Birds takes your fancy.



The best part of all? It’s super simple. Whilst you’re browsing our website full of ethical, eco-friendly sunglasses, keep an eye out for the ‘try-on’ button. When you find a pair you like, just click the button, and once you’ve allowed Bird to access your camera, you’ll be able to view the frames on your face. Try turning your head, see how they sit and admire the sunnies from all angles. You can save an image for future reference too.


This simple yet effective method not only allows our customers to see what suits their face shape, but reduces the carbon footprint of both us and our flock. Trying before you buy adds a power of certainty to your shopping as you already know the sunglasses suit you, therefore minimising on exchanges and returns through the postal service, thus reducing emissions and extra packaging - and saving you time. 


What is Virtual Try-On?


Virtual Try-On displays your eyewear options on your face like a mirror, helping you to choose your new frames. Virtual Try-On helps by showing you how you look like whilst wearing your selected frames, allowing you to try out different shapes from the comfort of your own home.



When to use it?

When you want to try new colours, when you want to share with friends, when you have options to compare.

If you’d like a little more insight into which frames might suit for different face shapes, we’ve put together a list of our favourite sunglasses for each face shape.
