Help & Information

How do I find my size?

On each product page you will see a tab called SIZE above the product description. If you click on this tab it will give you a size chart for that brand.

Can I try on any items?

You can try on swimwear, but we ask you use any hygiene strips provided or wear your own underwear underneath for hygiene purposes. Please use the size guide found on each page before you buy any swimwear.

Can I see items in my local currency?

In the top right corner of our website, you can pick a dropdown menu and chose between Pound Sterling (GBP), Euro (EUR), Australian Dollars (AUD), Canadian Dollars (CAD), or US Dollars (USD). This will be reflected on your bank statement.

Do you charge me for items that are out of stock?

When you place your order, we will tell you on the product page whether your items are in stock. If you choose any items that are not in stock, we will still charge you for the whole value of the order. We do this so that we do not have to store your credit or debit card details. As the card is not saved, we cannot charge you again. This makes our site more secure. It also reserves the stock for your order, so it won’t be sent to anyone else in the meantime.

Will you notify me when my order comes in?

After 4 weeks we will notify you with an automatic email to keep you updated. You are entitled to cancel reserved items at any time by phone or email.

How does an order appear on my statement?

All transactions will appear on your bank statement as Web Shop Direct Ltd.

How are items packaged?

All orders are sent in completely plain plastic bags or boxes. No logos or company names are present.

Is my order shipped the same day?

All goods are shipped by Royal Mail Tracked Post. Orders placed before 4.00pm GMT will be dispatched the same day, so long as items are in stock. In stock items will be sent right away, and awaiting stock items will be sent once available, with no additional postage charge.

How much does delivery cost?

As prices regularly change, please use the delivery selector in the basket.

How can I tell the colour of a product?

Colours swatches displayed on the website are only close aproximations to the colour of the item. Individual computor monitors will have their colour settings at different levels and therefore may display colours slightly differently to others. Each item has a clear viewing window on either the front or back of the packet. This allows you to check the colour of the product before opening the packet.

What happens if I miss a parcel?

Your parcel will be kept by Royal Mail at your local sorting office and you can go and pick it up with a form of photo ID the next day. After several days, which is determined by each sorting office branch individually, it shall be returned to us. Should your parcel be returned to us by Royal Mail and they state that you did not collect the package from the sorting office, you can contact us to have it reshipped.
