Common Questions

Sales & Promotions

  • What is a Pre-order?

    A pre-order is an order placed for an item which has not yet been released, however an allocation for stock is available for purchase.

    If an item is not in physical stock, the term PRE ORDER will appear in the product name and the product description will have further information about the expected delivery timeframe and shipment thereafter.

    It is the customers responsibility to read and understand this information before proceeding to place a PRE ORDER, as we do not offer refunds for late delivery, as this is outside of our control.

Fit & Style

  • Do you stock plus sizes?

    The largest sizes in our stock range would be a size L/12 (Australian) and occasionally size XL/14. This is due to the stock availability of our suppliers and designers.

  • What size range do you stock?

    Generally, our sizes range for garments is size 6/XS (AU) to size 12/L. Occasionally we receive 4/XXS and 14/XL. The size range available for each product is specified on its product page.

Placing An Order

  • How do I use my store credit?

    Your store credit is applied to your account and you do not need any code or voucher. Just make sure you are logged into your account when making your next purchase. It will appear in the check out process under the 'Payment' page.

    You will simply need to tick the box asking if you would like to use the store credit.

  • Where do I put the discount code if I use Paypal at the checkout?

    Unfortunately, Paypal does not allow a discount code to be added at Stage 3 of checkout. There are two alternative ways to add a discount code and still pay via Paypal. They are as follows:

    1. Select 'Bag' and then 'View/Edit Bag' in the drop down menu. This will show you all your items in your shopping bag. On the right, there will be an a Discount Code/Gift Card box, enter your discount code here. You may now process your payment with Paypal express.

    2. Select the 'Checkout' option. On Step 2, when you select Paypal as the payment option, a prompt link will appear for you to click to add a discount (as pictured). Select this and it will redirect you to your shopping bag where you can enter your code on a Discount Code/Gift Card box on the right.

  • Why isn't the discount code working?

    All of our discount codes have terms and conditions. The most common reasons the code won't work is: you have not reached the minimum spend, the code is not valid on the Gift Card and Gift category, you have already used the code, or you have a free gift in your shopping cart.

    To find out specific terms and conditions for your code, see:

    Don't forget that our dispatch turnaround is very quick, so it's important to let us know right away if you need to make any changes to your information.

    If your order is already packed and ready for dispatch, unfortunately, we cannot make any changes to your details.

    If you have forgotten to apply your discount, we cannot apply it after payment has been processed.

    Each promotion has its own terms and conditions, which include but are not limited to the following:

    • discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers
    • minimum spend amount (as specified)
    • only valid on products in specified category
    • no transfers

Shipping & Returns

  • How can I return an item?

    If you have purchased an item on sale or applied a discount / store credit or gift card you are responsible for the cost of your return shipping. It is up to you which service you choose however we do recommend tracking to avoid lost parcels. All international customers are responsible for return shipping also.

    If you are a domestic customer and have paid full price for your items you should have received a free return label in your parcel. You simply attach this to your return parcel and lodge at your local post office. Please still keep a copy of your tracking / consignment number as we cannot follow these up.
