2.0 Product Details
2.1 Quality control
Swimsuits are all checked thoroughly by hand before being dispatched to ensure they are flawless.
Similarly the fabric is checked by hand both as it leaves the factory in Italy and before the swimsuits are made up here in the UK to ensure it is flawless.
Then all swimsuits are checked carefully after manufacture before being packaged up.
Any damage that is done to swimsuits from trying them on at home will have to be paid for by the purchaser and refunds will not be given.
