Terms & Conditions of Website Sales:
No contract will exist between you and The Fitting Room for the sale until The Fitting Room accepts your order by e-mail and confirms, by email, that it has dispatched your order. For the avoidance of doubt, any such contract will be deemed to have been concluded in the United Kingdom. Further, any such contract will be interpreted, construed and enforced in all respects in accordance with the laws of England, and you and The Fitting Room irrevocably submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
We have made every effort to display the colours of our products that appear on the site as accurately as possible. However, the actual colours you see will depend on the resolution of your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour will accurately reflect the colour of the product upon delivery.
Order Dispatch, Click & Collect, Special Order Items and Delivery Dates:
Click & Collect
All in stock items will be ready for collection within 48 hours and you will receive a text or telephone call to advise you that your order is waiting for collection. Some items will need to be ordered in and this is noted on the screen before you place your order, please allow additional time for this order to arrive with us.
In Stock Items
Items will be dispatched within 1-3 working days but at busier times of this year this may take up to 5 working days. Working days include Monday to Friday.
Special Order Items
There is no charge for Special Orders and items can be returned for a full refund or an exchange without charge unless other instructions are specified on the product screen.
Being a small company, we found that materials of some bras deteriorated over the time they were held in stock. By offering these items on Special Order it means we can offer a wider range of lingerie, it also ensures the lingerie you receive is of optimum quality. The delivery time on these items is 5-10 working days and these items will be ordered 24 hours after you place your order - this gives you time to change your mind if you decide it is too long to wait, however, the wait time is clearly noted in the basket and on checkout. We will endeavour to dispatch your order within the specified times but there will be very occasional times when certain items are out of stock or no longer available, if this happens we will notify you of any delay or stock issue before your delivery is due.
We understand goods are needed urgently sometimes and there is a field on the checkout page where you can notify us of any date you might need your goods for. Please use this box to tell us if you need the goods urgently as this helps us process your order more efficiently.
Upon receiving your order we will send you confirmation and then again when the order has been dispatched so you know when to expect it. You are able to log into your account and check on the status of your account at any time. Delivery times quoted on the website are for UK customers and overseas customers should allow for the additional delivery time to their country.
My order has not arrived, what should I do?
We send all of our packets via Royal Mail using the delivery option you have chosen on checkout and all have Insurance on them for loss. If your parcel has not arrived we ask that you allow 15 WORKING days from the date of your dispatch email for your parcels arrival as the Post Office will not consider any package missing until 15 working days have elapsed. For overseas addresses, please allow up to 6 weeks for your parcel to arrive. After this time please contact us and let us know that there is a problem so we can sort it out.
Postage and Packaging:
We will send items to UK addresses by standard 1st Class postage with Proof of Delivery. Any additional service will have to be paid for at time of purchase and if you require Insurance on the package please ensure this option is taken at time of checkout.
Should you require an item to be sent on Next Day Delivery we will be able to do this for an additional charge on 'In Stock, Immediate Dispatch' items only and the order must be placed by 12pm.
Overseas packages are sent via Royal Mail Airmail and quoted delivery time is 5-10 working days however, there has been the rare occasion where a package has been held in customs at the destination country and this could hold up the delivery time. Any Insurance on the package is an additional fee, please choose this option at time of checkout.
All items are sent in waterproof and tamper proof opaque plastic envelopes. If the package is being sent outside of the EU the required customs label will state that the package contains 'Clothing'. Please be aware that duty may be payable upon receipt of the package in your home country and we will not be held liable for these fees. This is your responsibility so please be aware if any charge may exist.
Sale and Clearance Items:
We endeavour to keep the available sizes as up to date as possible and all clearance items offered will be in stock and available for delivery. As we are a working shop, there may be the occasional time that an item will be out of stock when the order is picked, if this is the case you will be advised but not charged for this item. Should you purchase a set (i.e. bra or bikini set) and only one part of the set is in stock you will be notified before your card is charged and you are then free to cancel the order so you are not left with oddments.
Refunds & Returns:
Please see our page on Refunds and Returns for more information.
High value special order items:
