   INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY & TRANSIT TIMES

Once your order is received, there is a 14 - 28 business day processing time before your order is shipped. The corsets we offer are constructed by the designers as they're ordered, and are not massed produced. These beautiful hand made corsets are individually crafted to the highest standards by highly skilled corsetieres. If you need it fast, check our in-stock selection for our best selling styles. Once shipped, please allow 7-28 business days in transit time to receive your package.  Most orders shipped via U.S. Airmail will arrive in the destination country within 7 days after being shipped, but please allow up to 28 days due to the unpredictability of international mail and Customs delays. Most orders shipped via Express Mail will arrive within 3 days of being shipped, but as with Airmail shipping, the postal service does not guarantee on-time delivery. 

 *NOTE ON CORSET AVAILABILITY:  Standard processing time is typically 3-6 weeks on standard pattern styles that begin with "A" and "VO". Please keep in mind that certain styles may take longer due to the designer's production schedule and season. Custom styles and made-to-measure corsets beginning with "E", "P" or "V" typically have a 6-8 week processing time frame, from the date measurements are confirmed. However, some custom and made-to-measure styles may take longer depending on the designer's production schedule and season. Any request to alter a standard style is considered a custom order and the 6-8 week delivery time frame would apply. Custom styles and made-to-measure corsets may not be exchanged or returned. Please see Corset Availability for further information on processing time-frame.

You can estimate the merchandise total in your home currency here.

Please check with your bank to see what their policy is.

   FRAUD PREVENTION

In an effort to prevent online fraud, we utilize methods in addition to verifying billing addresses, to guard against the fraudulent and criminal use of credit cards. Please be aware that when an order is placed, web browsers transmit a unique internet address which is used by law enforcement officials to identify you. 

The credit card AVS system is not capable of verifying international addresses. Therefore, in order to process international orders, additional verification is necessary to verify the cardholder's identity. We may request that you fill out our "Shipping Authorization" form. This information will be kept strictly confidential and is only used to help us verify the authenticity of the credit card and cardholder. We appreciate your cooperation in this process. 

We are committed to protecting consumers from the fraudulent use of their personal information. Those who attempt to fraudulently use credit cards will be prosecuted and reported to the appropriate bank, internet service provider and state and local authorities.

By placing an order with our company, the customer has read and agrees to all policies and terms of sale on our web site, and accepts the sale as a legally binding contract. By placing this sale/contract, the customer waives personal jurisdiction in their state and submits themselves to jurisdiction in the state of Washington.
