Return of Unworn Items
If an Item doesn’t fit you, not as described, or faulty, you may return it unworn within 24 hours, with the security tag attached, to receive a credit of the rental fee minus delivery charges. You must email firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your intention to mail back the Item for credit. Returns for credit will not be accepted if security tag has been removed from the garment. The term “unworn” will be determined by Dressedup and must be fulfilled prior to a credit being issued. Credits will only be issued if ALL of the sizes in the order were unworn.
In order to help you with fit, Dressedup offers a “back up size” where available. This back up size is subject to availability at the time of shipment and will only be sent to you if no other orders are present for this back up size during the period of your order. At no time do we guarantee availability of back up size dresses. If you wear either ordered size or a backup size dress, the order is considered successful and no returns for credit will be possible. We may discontinue the availability of backup Items at any time.
If a backup size was worn, no credit will be issued. The order is considered successful if one or more of the Items in the order is worn.
Dressedup offers a “backup style” when consumers want extra choices for their order. This service is intended not to be used to borrow multiple dresses for multiple occasions, rather to be used to give customers more options to choose from for their one occasion. An order is considered fulfilled and successful if any of the dresses including the original rental, back up size or back up style is worn and no returns for credit will be considered if any of these conditions are met. If a backup style is worn, no credit will be issued.
