How do I book a dress?
To book a dress you have 2 options.
- Browse through our extensive range of beautiful dresses. Once you have decided on the dress you would like to wear to your event, select a day for delivery from the calendar on the contents page. This will automatically set the return date to the following Monday.
You will be required to pay for your dress either in full if required right away or 50% if booking in advance with the remainder to be paid on the day of collection. Unfortunately we cannot ‘hold’ a dress for you. We can take bookings up to 3 months in advance. If the dress you wish to wear is very popular then we advise you to book it in advance to avoid disappointment.
- The second way to book a dress is to come into our store located at 571 Hampton St, Hampton and try the garment on in person and book from the store. We are open every day except Sunday.
How long can I hire a dress for?
Rentals are strictly four days, unless otherwise previously arranged. Our deliveries are completed Express Post and are beautifully boxed so they arrive in pristine condition. The day after your event, please pop the dress in the supplied satchel and return to our store in Hampton no later than Monday 3pm. Your garment must be returned no later than the date specified in the instructions at time of purchase. Please remember other customers are waiting to wear the dress after you, and if you return the dress late, we have to refund the customer who misses out. You will be charged an extra fee if you do not immediately return the dress.
I need the dress ASAP!
No problem! If you live in the Bayside area, we can arrange for your dress to arrive by 6pm that day via courier or alternatively you can come into the store. If you make your booking online the dress will need to be booked and paid for by 9am on the day of delivery.
I received the dress and its not quite right. What do I do?
If the dress doesn’t fit properly or isn’t what you thought then we can fix this! Please phone or email us at email@example.com and let us know. We will advise you to return it in the provided Australia Post satchel. You then may choose another dress which will be dispatched on receipt of the original or you can request a credit voucher (less postage cost $30) to use at another time. To re-send an additional dress a $30 fee will be charged for postage costs. If the dress is not sent back in time (the day you have received it and notified us that its unsuitable) your payment will be voided.
What if I stain or damage my dress?
Beware of fake tan and red wine! We suggest you take extra care as dress replacements will be charged if deemed ruined. Please do not attempt to clean the dress – scrubbing and soaking can cause discolouration and this dress will need to be paid for at its recommended retail price, if deemed unsellable by Your Secret Closet. Please also be mindful of jewellery or bags which can “pull” threads on the dress. It is your responsibility when it comes to wearing and protecting your dress from Your Secret Closet that you take care of it however we do understand that accidents happen and are reasonable in dealing with these scenarios.
Should I wash the dress?
Not at all – the dry-cleaning is on us! If you stain it please let us know at drop off so we can discuss it with our specialist dry cleaner.
How far in advance can I book a dress?
Our booking system allows you to rent a dress up to 3 months in advance. Please contact us via email or phone if the date you require a certain dress for, is more than 3 months away.
What sizes do you stock?
Currently they range in size from Australian 6 – 14.
When is my credit card charged for the dress rental?
Full payment is taken at the time of booking
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept payments via VISA, AMEX, MasterCard, Visa Debit & Paypal as well as Afterpay.
What if I change my mind and wish to cancel and order?
We DO NOT offer refunds for cancellations of an item or change of mind. A credit note or code will be issued and must be used within 12 months. Credit notes/codes WILL NOT be accepted during the busy Spring Carnival period.
In the event of a cancellation due to Covid a 12mth credit voucher will be issued. This is inline with other hire boutiques.
How do I return my dress?
Returning your dress is quick and easy. Simply return in store at 571 Hampton St, Hampton. Alternatively if you would prefer to place it in the post then we can provide you with an Express Post Satchel fully paid for for your convenience.
Late Fee Policy
We take pride in meeting and exceeding the expectations of all of our customers by providing an exceptional experience that begins with an on-time delivery. When a dress is not returned to us on time by a customer, or is lost or stolen, it impacts our ability to deliver our service to other customers and it damages our reputation. We rely on our customers to return our products on time so that we can continue to fulfil orders for other customers. Please review our Late Fee Policy below which explains how to return your rental products and outlines the late fees charged for late returns.
Please do not leave your rentals with any third party (hotel, mail room, friend) for return as you would still be held liable for any late fees incurred.
Returns should be sent to the following address:
Your Secret Closet – 571 Hampton St, Hampton 3188
If you return your rental items late or do not return them at all, a late fee of $25 per day will be charged to the credit card you used for the order. If you have not returned a rental item within 20 days after the return date, your late return will be considered a non-return and Your Secret Closet will charge your credit card or debit card the recommended retail price of the item.
