Thank you for shopping at Corset Story.
Corset Story aims to make your shopping experience perfect in every way. However, we know that sometimes you may need to return products. This policy sets out when you can return products, and how to do so.
If you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase, we're here to help. We offer free and simple worldwide returns on all items ordered*.
Our free return service is provided by Corset Story and requires you to have access to a printer to print our free returns label.
In the event you are not 100% happy with your purchase, if you return all of the items from your order, we will refund the full cost of your order including the shipping costs, (up to the price of standard shipping - please see section on Shipping Cost refund).
If you wish to return items for exchange or refund, you have 14 days from the date you received your parcel to set up an online return. Once your Online Return has been submitted you will be able to download a Free Shipping label. Shipping labels are valid for 7 days once created, so please be sure to drop your parcel off within this timescale.
To be eligible for a return,
- Your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it.
- Your item must be in the original packaging, with the swing tags & barcodes attached
- Your item needs to be returned with the original packing slip so please keep this safe.
Returns for Exchanges*
Popular designs can sell out very quickly and we cannot reserve designs for our customers. To avoid disappointment, we suggest you place a new order via our website for the desired items and return the order you have for a “Refund”.
When shipping your exchange, we will ship it on the standard shipping service only.
Multi Buy exchanges and refunds*
When purchasing your items from any of our Multi Buy offers, should you wish to partially return items from your order, we can process an exchange up to the value of the highest priced corset on your original order. We are unable to offer a partial refund where you are not returning the whole order.
If you choose a higher priced item for exchange, we will ask you to pay the difference or choose an item for the same value as the original order.
Our Customer Service agents are ready to help if you need to ask any questions. Please contact us by clicking on the following link - Contact us Page
When you are returning your full order for a refund, we will also refund the cost of the standard shipping service. Where you have opted for express shipping on your original order, we will only refund the cost of the standard shipping service.
Where you have paid for express shipping on your original order, and wish to have an exchange, the exchange order will be shipped using our standard service.
Receiving your Refund
When we process your refund, you will receive funds as follows:
- If you made the payment by card, we will refund you on the same payment card (Once the refund has been processed funds leave Corset Story’s account instantly, please allow 2 – 4 business days to receive your funds depending on the T&C’s of your bank)
- If you made a payment through Paypal funds will be returned to your Paypal account
- If you are an international customer to the site you have purchased from and have placed your order in a different currency you may find the refund you receive is a slightly different value from the one debited from your card. This is due to currency fluctuations and is controlled by your card issuer.
Once you have downloaded and printed your free returns label, you need to package up your return items and follow the instructions on your return label.
When you drop off the parcel at a drop off point, we will be notified by our ‘Returns software’. We will then be able to track your return parcel back to our warehouse.
Once the parcel is on its way back to us, we will issue your refund. Where you have returned all the items from your order, the refund will be credited back to your original payment method within 2-4 business days, depending on your card issuer's policies.
Once we receive your physical item, we will inspect it to make sure it complies with our returns policy. In the unlikely event that the return does not comply with our policy, we will contact you by email to discuss the options.
