How do i clean my suit?


I recommend hand washing in cold water with a gentle hand wash detergent (Eucalan gentle cleanser is available in the accessories section if you wish to order from us) Lay flat to dry. For more stubborn stains such as tanning products I recommend Grandma's secret stain remover (also available in accessories section), Following instruction on bottle, apply before hand washing.




What is the return policy?


All Suit Sales are Final due to the custom and sanitary nature of the items, however, Please email me with any specific concerns and solutions will be dealt with on a case by case basis.




What do i do if a stone comes loose?


While cleaning or with regular use it is common for a stone to come loose or become lifted. I always include replacement stones for this reason. If this happens, you can use any fabric glue as long as it dries clear. Place a small bead of glue where you need to replace the stone, and lightly press the stone in place. Allow to dry overnight.
