Returns Policy

We want you to be thrilled with what you’ve purchased from Gallery Serpentine’s webstore and really feel looked after by us so here’s our Returns Policy.

Here’s the summarised Version: 

We accept returns on most items if you return them within 20 days from the date you ordered.

**Exceptions are items that have been marked down, are on sale, custom sized or custom ordered to your specifications, ie. a different colour or type of fabric or different trims or fastenings.   Due to Australian Health & Hygiene standards we’re not able to offer returns on lingerie, underwear, hosiery, body stockings, socks or earrings.**

If you receive your order and you have selected the wrong standard size, it doesn't suit you, or you are not happy with your purchase for any reason, you are welcome to send it back for a Store Credit, exchange or a refund.  Please note that postage costs will not be refunded for change of mind or incorrect size selection.

Return postage costs are your responsibility and you’ll need to select a service that has tracking, ie. Australia Post Parcel Post if in Australia .   If there’s been a mistake at our end with your order then we will refund you the cost of the return postage.

Super important handy tip to avoid disappointment: Please make sure to check the size guide for the item before you place your order. Remember we are here to help you choose the best size so if you are at all unsure please use our Message Us button on the Product page or our Contact Us page and Steph, Annette or Trixie will help make sure you’re going to get the correct size.

Our phone number if you prefer to text or call is +61 451 007 540.
