Returns and Refunds
18.0. I believe that my products will live up to your highest expectations and my service to you must live up to the same quality as my products. I am always happy to advise and help my customers select the best products or help, in the unlikely event of issues. Simply follow the instructions outlined below:
18.1. Under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2014, you are allowed to open the item to inspect the goods, but NOT use them! Care must be taken to avoid damaging the packaging as you may lose your rights to return the item.
18.2. The ‘goods’ must be returned in their original packaging unused, in an undamaged stock condition suitable for resale, with all tags attached. You must pay the carriage cost of returning the goods. The goods must be returned within seven days of receipt of your email confirmation of the return.
18.3. If you wish to cancel your order and return the item/s, please visit my website and on the footer you will find the returns portal. Please click on this to start the simple process, the reason for return and your order number, and await further instructions via email before returning any items. Emails are fine, but please ensure that you ask your email provider for a reader receipt, so that you know that I have received your message.
18.4. Charges for postage on returned goods must be paid for by the sender and when posting goods, it is advisable to keep ‘proof of posting’. A letter enclosed inside, explaining the reason for return must accompany the returned item/s along with a copy of the original invoice. A returns number must be obtained prior to sending your items back which will be provided through the returns portal.
The returns number must be written on the returned product packaging – Failure to do so could result in a delay or refusal on a refund or replacement!
18.5. All products bought from our website are guaranteed. If a product arrives faulty, you may return it to me for a refund or exchange as per the instructions above (clause 18.3), unless a manufacturer’s guarantee has been issued, in which case you will need to contact the manufacturer.
18.6. Any use of the goods beyond that necessary to inspect them on delivery will invalidate your right to cancel the order.
18.7. If you remove any tags, or the item has been used, cleaned, damaged, soiled, the protective film/covers have been removed or if I believe the items have been damaged due to lack of care by yourself, then I reserve the right to refuse a refund or replacement. Items must also be odour free, including the smell of smoke and perfume. If damage is made when returning the goods back to me, then it is your right to seek compensation from your carrier you used.
18.8. Until you’re sure, please do not wear your lingerie items for a night out!!
All items must be returned in ‘as-new’ condition. This means lingerie must be unworn, unwashed and retain all its labels and tags.
18.9. Please keep your own briefs on when trying on knickers and other lingerie – I will not accept returns on lingerie that have been worn or is returned in soiled conditions!!
Due to the delicate nature of hosiery, I am unable to exchange or refund stockings, body stockings or tights once they have been opened up. So please be sure of your selection before ordering.
18.10. If you have opened up your stocking, body stockings or tights and are not happy with your purchase, please let me know and I will do my best to help where I can.
Corsets should be tried on over a t-shirt and not laced tight when trying for size, as corsets quickly form the shape of your body when tight laced. I will exchange corsets for an alternative size, but only when the corset is returned in ‘brand-new’ condition in the original packaging.
A corset that has been tight laced rather than gently tried on for size, will not be exchanged.
I will exchange your corset once for an alternative size, corsets are not refundable.
Please take the utmost care when repacking your returned items, to avoid unnecessary damage or creasing – You will be responsible for the returned goods until they reach us.
18.11. Any returned goods that I receive which are outside of my returns policy, will be deemed as “Disputed”. Such disputed items will not be refunded or exchanged and a reason for this decision will be provided if requested.
I am happy to re-ship such disputed items back to you at a cost to yourself; otherwise they will be destroyed within 90 calendar days from their receipt back to us.
18.12. I am unfortunately unable to issue refunds to a third party, only to the card or PayPal account that was originally used.
18.13. Goods returned for exchange or gift vouchers must in all respects be in the condition you received them.
18.14. PayPal refunds can only be issued up to 60 days after the initial order. If for whatever reason I need to refund you after the 60 days have expired, then you will be responsible for PayPal’s charges for receiving the money from me.
18.15. If an order or product has been returned to me that was paid for with a credit note or a gift voucher, then a refund will be issued in the form of another credit note or gift voucher.
18.16. If you have paid p&p on your order, then I reserve the right not to refund this cost to you. If you return an item, I will only refund the cost of the goods to you.
Delivery charges will not be refunded in the case of a return, however, with replacement items, you will not be charged again for delivery.
18.17. As soon as I receive your refunded items, I will process your request and either credit your account or dispatch a replacement order. In the event of your substitute item being out of stock, I will be in touch. You will receive an email either way to inform you of the process.
18.18. I will not offer a full refund on items returned that have clearly been used and are not in their original condition and packaging. I will charge a re-stocking fee for such items at my discretion.
18.19. Refunds and exchanges are made approximately five working days after receipt of items to allow for inspection. Replacement items held in stock will be dispatched within two working days.
If your chosen substitute is not in stock, I will contact you to ask if you are prepared to wait until I restock the items or if you would prefer a refund.
18.20. I cannot be held responsible for orders lost in transit. I would recommend that you send items by recorded delivery and retain the ‘certificate of posting”. This is for your own protection as “proof of posting” is not a “proof of delivery”. If items go missing, it is the customer’s responsibility to claim from Royal Mail and I will help you with any investigation enquiries.
18.21. Before contacting me, please take note of the timescales required to process a refund:
18.21.1 – *For a full refund on your purchase, I need to have notice via my returns portal of your refund and reasoning's seven (7) days from receipt of your item. This should give you more than enough time to have checked your purchase for size etc. If you inform me of your wish for a refund AFTER this period, I will offer you either an exchange or a credit note for the value of your purchase.
18.21.2 – I require 5 working days from receipt of a return for me to inspect the item and process a refund.
18.21.3 – Please allow a further 5-10 working days for the refund to be credited to your account. This time frame is dictated by PayPal, your bank or card issuer and is outside of my control.
The refund for the goods returned will be in the form of the original payment, either to the debit card, credit card used or to your PayPal account.
18.22. Clearance and/or sale items cannot be returned unless they are faulty, so please be sure of your selection before ordering.
Due to hygiene reasons, lingerie (if the tags have been removed) can only be returned in the event that they are faulty, unfit for purpose, not as described or of an unsatisfactory quality.
This does not affect your statutory rights.
18.23. If you notify me of your cancellation after the seven day statutory cooling-off period, goods returned to me can only be exchanged for replacement goods or gift vouchers.
Goods returned for exchange or gift vouchers must in all respects be in the same condition you received them. This offer applies for three months from the date of purchase and is in addition to you statutory rights.
18.24. If, for any reason, our policy for returns is not adhered to in any way, the item will be returned back to the customer and no refund will be offered.
Packaging the item for return:
18.25. Please package the items you are returning in the same way it was sent to you. Product boxes (i.e. shoe boxes) must be protected with outer packaging without damaging the product box.
18.26. Please do not wrap the original items in packaging tape or stick labels on it; I would prefer that you re-use the original packaging box that the items were dispatched to you in. Product boxes returned damaged cannot be accepted for return. Please ensure all original packaging, tissue paper, and item plastic bags are also returned.
Faulty, damaged Goods or Items Received in Error
18.27. In the unlikely event that an item arrives to you is faulty, damaged or sent in error, firstly, DO NOT WORRY!. Please notify me ASAP or within 3 working days of receiving the items at firstname.lastname@example.org
18.28. You may initially be asked to provide me with photographic evidence/images via email prior to returning it to me, to initially inspect the problem and advise you. Our customer services team will advise you on the next steps and help you through the process.
Please note, I am unable to accept returns for the following items, unless faulty:
