Can I buy gift vouchers in store?

I need sizing advice

Have you had a look at our brand new sizing chart and universal size converter? It’s on the ‘size guide’ tab on every single product on our website and features measurements and conversions, wherever you are in the world. Check it out here.

Or if you're still not sure and would like some personalised advice, please contact our customer services team. Be sure to include your bust, waist and hip measurements in inches and the item(s) you're interested in. The team will be more than happy to help!

The item I like is out of stock

If the item/size you need is not available on our website, then this does unfortunately mean it's out of stock - we do not have any stock in our warehouse that is not available online.

The good news is that we often restock items once or more after they have initially sold out. Make sure you keep in the loop by heading to the item you like, selecting your size & clicking 'Email me when back in stock'. We'll let you know as soon as we have more stock available!

We're unfortunately not able to cover return postage costs at this time.

How do exchanges work?

We've updated the way we offer exchanges!

If you tick ‘credit note’ on your returns form, we will now automatically issue an amount equal to the value of the returned item (at time of purchase) straight in to your Collectif e-wallet, as soon as we process your return! You can then use this to re-buy the item in a new size, or buy a different item entirely. The value of your credit note will simply be deducted from your basket at the final stage of checkout.

How do international returns work?

For the most part, international returns work just the same as any sent from the UK. However, if you're returning a parcel to us from outside the UK, please remember to state on any customs declarations that your parcel contains 'RETURNED GOODS'. If this is not declared, we will unfortunately have to forward any costs for duty through to you. 

Is there anything I can't return?

All items returned to us must be in a re-sellable condition. This means returned items must be unworn, free of stains, odours, and animal hair. Items must not be damaged, and must be returned with the original labels still attached. 

If any items are received in an unsellable condition, they will be posted back to you.

For reasons of health and hygiene, we are unable to accept any lingerie, hosiery or pierced jewellery as returns. Swimwear must be tried over underwear, and any hygeine seals must be intact or your right to return will be affected.

What if I've received an incorrect/faulty item?

We of course do our best to ensure all orders are fulfilled correctly and with top quality items. However, mistakes unfortunately happen - please always let us know so we can resolve the issue!

If we have sent you an incorrect or faulty item, please get in contact before you send your parcel back - this will speed up the return process. Our customer services team will reply to your email ASAP and advise how best to proceed. If you're sending your item/s back to us, please include your returns form and a copy of your return postage receipt in your parcel, so that we can refund the amount to you. We will issue your refund/send out your replacement item as soon as we receive your parcel.
