If it is sold but still in production, we will advise you when it will be back in stock to arrange a back-order or an agreeable alternative item or refund.

Orders that are in stock are dispatched the same day or the following working day from when your purchase is made.
Delivery times may vary on Special Orders. We will inform you via email or phone with an estimated delivery window.
These delivery windows are only estimates. We have no control over international customs policies and cannot estimate the time frame items may be held by customs. We can offer a tracking number for you to monitor if there is a delay in delivery if you upgrade to the Courier Service.
You must take responsibility for providing an address that will enable delivery to be made within normal business hours. We accept no liability for loss or damage after the delivery has been made.
Our maximum liability to you is limited to the price of the product ordered. We will meet our own costs for sending an exchanged or refunded item to you if we have made an error or we accept that the item is faulty but you must deliver any exchange item to us at your own cost and risk.
REFUNDS & EXCHANGE
A refund or exchange must be agreed to by Smitten Kitten before item/s are returned via email - firstname.lastname@example.org. Smitten Kitten will provide you with the return address and a return reference number.
We will exchange any product that does not match your order. If the item you receive is not what you ordered, you may return it to us for a refund or exchange provided the tags have not been removed and product has not been worn. You must notify us immediately by email and return the item to us within 14 days with a valid receipt, in its original condition and packaging.
We only offer a refund when the product has a fault and where an exchange is not possible. We will not consider conditions caused by normal wear and tear or failure to follow care instructions to be a fault.
We are happy to exchange products or offer a credit note when items are not the correct size. For hygiene purposes we do not accept exchanges for items which have been worn and not returned in their original condition.
Please take your measurements accurately and refer to our sizing guide to help you select the correct size.
If you feel unsure about how to use the sizing guide or have any questions regarding size, please send us an enquiry, we would love to help you.
To extend the life of your precious purchase we recommend that you hand wash your lingerie very gently in lukewarm/tepid water (no more than 30 degrees celcius)
Use soap flakes or delicate washing shampoos. Less is more! Use only a small amount creating a light lather to preserve the life of your lingerie. Aggesssive washing powders and detergents damage delicate fabric and disolve stitching and elastic
Rinse thoroughly in clean, cool water
Drip dry in shade or dry by rolling gently in a towel and lying flat in shade
Never soak as colours may bleed and mix together
Never leave in sunlight as colours may fade
Your lingerie is made of delicate fabric and lace and therefore not machine washable
Do not use a tumble dryer
Carefully press silk sleepwear on a low heat and inside out to bring back luster
Care instructions are attached to each garment. For the best individual care, please follow the instructions on the garment carefully as they may differ from the general directions we have given. If you have any questions regarding the care of your lingerie please contact us by completing the Contact Us Enquiry Form
