Hey guys,

Does this make sense to you English native speakers:


"This design is a perfect fit for whichever event you need it for"


This is for a product description, I'm not sure about the 'whichever' part, I just need to know that it makes sense.

Thanks

"Whichever" suggests that we know about a set of events that the design might be used for. I suspect that that is not the case, but unless you provide context, it is impossible to evaluate the sentence reliably. Is that not so in many other languages? Very often a question is asked about a bit of English that can mean several different things or that requires several different formats depending on its context, but the OP does not seem to realize that.

Also, "whichever", and the more suitable "whatever", are both a little casual, even offhand. "Any" is the neutral word: "This design is a perfect fit for any event you need it for." It still sounds wrong, though. The two instances of "for" are clumsy. Maybe: "This design is a perfect fit for any event."

Ok, how about "This design is a perfect fit for any event you need it for" ?

The idea is to let the customer think of a personal event that the item will suit perfectly.
