FAQ



    Orders

    How do I order?
    Simply select the correct variant on each product you wish to purchase and add to cart. When done, click on your shopping cart. You will be able to fill in your billing and delivery details.

    If you are ordering made to measure items - simply proceed to purchase like you would an instock item. Once we have received the order one of our lovely staff members will be reaching out to you via the email you supplied to confirm the details of the order (this includes the material colour, hardware, sizing, all that important business!).

    Can I change or cancel my order?
    If you have not received a shipping notification yet feel free to contact us and we will see what we can do. We work on a case by case basis. Please be aware cancelled orders will incur a 15% restocking fee. If you would like to make a change to your order after it has been placed, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.

    Once an order has left our hands and is en route, you can’t cancel your order. If you decide to refuse a shipment, you will be responsible for all shipping and handling fees, including any additional customs, restocking or return fees.

    How can I check the status of my order?
    We know you can't wait to receive your order, which is why we notify you when your order ships via email. Unfortunately we don’t have any sort of automated system for you to know about how our packing queue is going. If you have any concerns about timing feel free to contact us!

    Shipping

    Where do you ship to?
    We happily ship internationally! If mail gets there, we will ship it. Just please be aware you may be asked for an additional payment to receive your order if the delivery address of your order is outside of Canada.

    What shipping options are available?
    We ship with Canada Post for all domestic orders and Canada Post and UPS for International orders.

    How much is shipping?
    You’re able to get a shipping estimate in our check out before you purchase. Simply place the items you are interested in into the cart and input your address. Our shipping is calculated based on size, weight and value so it hugely depends on what you are ordering. If you are having issues send us an email and we can try getting an estimate to you.

    Will I be required to pay customs/import duties to receive my order?
    You may be asked for an additional payment to receive your order if the delivery address of your order is outside of Canada. Any additional payment asked of you is an import tax not a shipping charge. You are personally responsible for any import duty/tax that may be applied to an order. Deadly Couture Inc. is not responsible for any additional charges incurred during shipping, such as duties and taxes, and we do not mark down the value of your parcel.

    Do you ship discreetly?
    All of our packages are sent in unmarked poly mailers or cardboard boxes. The only indication of what is inside will be our company name on the shipping label and keywords may be on customs forms.

    How can I track my order after it’s shipped?
    Please make sure you enter a valid email address when placing an order as once you have placed your order and we have shipped it out, you will receive an automated email containing your tracking number. Until we have created a shipping label the tracking/shipping information is unavailable.

    How often do you have postage pick ups?
    We have scheduled pick ups three times a week, we don’t want you waiting too long!

    Curbside Pick Up

    How does curbside pick up work?
    When checking out on our website select curbside pick up as your shipping method. Once we get everything all packed up and ready for you we will send you an email saying it’s time for pick up! Come on down to our warehouse in lovely East Vancouver. When you arrive just ring the front doorbell and we will meet you at the front door. You must have a piece of government issued ID to verify your identity and it must match the name on the order.

    Where do I pick up a curbside pick up order?
    Curbside pick ups are at our warehouse location - 1599 Venables Street in Vancouver, BC.

    When can I pick up a curbside pick up order?
    We are available for curbside pick ups 7 days a week, from 11:00am - 6:00pm. You don't need to let us know when you're popping by. Just let us know when you have arrived!

    How long does it take for a curbside pick up order to be ready?
    Depends on how busy we are but we are usually pretty quick about it. We hope to have things ready the same day. If you are concerned about timing just email or call us!

    Why does Curbside Pick up now cost .25¢?
    As of January 1st, 2022 the City of Vancouver has introduced a bylaw requiring retailers to provide paper bags at a small cost to their customers. We are no longer permitted to use plastic bags, nor to distribute bags for free.

    How long do I have to pick up my curbside order?
    Unfortunately we cannot hold on to orders forever! We reserve the right to cancel any orders for pick up that are not collected within 60 days of purchase.

    What types of payment do you accept?
    Our website accepts Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Shop Pay and PayPal.

    Unfortunately we do not accept payments over phone.

    We charge in CAD.

    Exchange rates?

    We cannot advise on exchange rates, please contact your payment provider for more information.

    What does the payment charge look like on a bank statement?
    We try to be as discreet as possible - the charge on the bank statement should show up as simply “Deadly Couture Inc”.

    Returns and exchanges

    Do you accept returns or exchanges?
    Due to the intimate nature of the items we sell, we do not offer any returns or exchanges.

    Is my item/size in stock?
    All of our products are listed on the website in the available options, so if you do not see your size or desired colour, we are out of stock.

    Materials

    What’s the difference between latex and PVC?
    Latex clothing and accessories are made from latex rubber sheeting while PVC clothing and accessories are made from plastic polyvinyl chloride. PVC is also sometimes referred to as Vinyl. Most latex clothing is glued at the seams and PVC/Vinyl is sewn like traditional garments. For the glossy look, latex does need to be polished as it is matte in its natural form.

    How do you take care of latex?

    What is chlorinated latex?
    Chlorination is a chemical process that is done to some latex clothing and accessories to make them softer, easier to get on, more durable, prevent items sticking together, and can even be more suitable for people with latex allergies. With the change to the surface of latex when it has been chlorinated, it is good to note that these items are usually more difficult if not impossible to repair or do alterations on.

    Is my PVC / wetlook damaged?
    PVC and wetlook does crease over time and depending on storage as well. PVC can have minor creases from shipping and should not be cause for alarm.
