Returns and Exchanges Policy
Processing Returns and Exchanges
Wrong size, not what you expected, need a different fit?
We offer free first time returns and discounted future returns for full priced items. That’s right, if you need to return or exchange something the first time, then it's FREE.
We also offer credit notes and exchanges on sales items. All sales items can be returned. We will offer you an exchange or a credit note. There is no refund on sales items and the purchaser pays for return postage.
How to exchange something
If you want an exchange, we will do our best to supply the exact garment and size that you’re after, but for the one-off items (eg Kingston Dressmaking garments) unfortunately this is not possible as all of Kingston’s garments are one of a kind. The sooner you contact us to let us know what you need to exchange, the more likely we are to be able to accommodate you. Email email@example.com and a real person will respond.
If we don’t have the stock you want, we’ll get in touch with you asap so we can offer an alternative or come to another arrangement.
If this is your first online purchase with us, we offer FREE returns within Australia on full priced items. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org about what you’d like to return/exchange and we’ll email you a label to attach to your parcel (you will need access to a printer). Then drop it in at the nominated postal service on your slip – this means it can be scanned for tracking.
Please wrap your parcel securely and protect the garment. Damaged garments will be not accepted for exchanges or refunds. Curvy Design Shop does not accept any responsibility for lost or stolen items.
Again, if this is your first online purchase, we will send you any full-priced exchange items for free as well. Basically, your first purchase is your chance to order up big! If you’re not sure of a size, get a few sizes and get free postage on returns and exchanges for the ones that didn’t work for you. Refunds and exchanges will be processed as quickly as possible, but please allow 5 working days for processing.
For return customers...
Please contact email@example.com and let us know you need to make a return/exchange. We keep this processes as fast and simple for you as we can. You have 30 days from the date of purchase to let us know you'd like to return or exchange good(s).
If it's not your first purchase and you want an exchange or refund for a full priced item then you will need to pay postage. For full priced items we will exchange or refund providing garments are returned in their original condition (unworn, unwashed, undamaged and tags still attached). Damaged or worn garments will be not accepted for exchanges or refunds. Curvy Design Shop does not accept any responsibility for lost or stolen items.
For sale items we offer credit notes or exchange. All sales items can be returned. There is no refund on sales items and the purchaser pays for return postage.

If the garment was a gift, Curvy Design Shop will send any replacement or exchanged item to the address the original purchase was sent to.

We pride ourselves on quality garments, but we’re only human, and so are our makers. So, if a garment is faulty, we’ll help you as best we can.
Faulty garments can be returned for a repair (minor fault) or refund/exchange (major fault), even if it was a gift. Please contact us first to let us know about the fault and we can discuss the options available: firstname.lastname@example.org
Naturally the sooner we know the problem, the sooner we can fix it. Curvy Design Shop features indie designers who either do one-of-a-kind or small style runs, so if your garment has a major flaw (i.e. cannot be mended) we can sometimes replace it with another garment, but it might not be the style you originally purchased. We will always contact your first to discuss the options.
Normal wear and tear is not considered a fault.
Please follow the care instructions sewn into the garments. If these have not been followed then you will not be eligible for a repair, exchange or refund.
