If you find any quality problems with our product when you receive your package, please contact our customer service team. We will arrange a free replacement, return or refund as soon as possible. We don't accept ordering more dresses at a time, then just keep 1-2 dresses at last, because all dresses are made to order, you have to pay shipping cost to send them back, we have to pay taxes when we get them too, sometimes, the package maybe lost during shipping, that would be much more trouble, so the cost is so high for both of us if you return them back.

In one word: We can accept return of dresses standard size with picture color if size no bigger than US14 (including US14). 


Cetims promises to issue a full refund including shipping fee and rush fee(if there is)for any damaged, defective, or mis-shipped standard size dresses. Pictures to prove the quality problems are required.

For dresses with size over US14, please note that they are not refundable or exchangable if you don't like them. Since most dresses from our shop are mermaid style, so for plus size girls, some one have big waist, the others have big hip or butt, in most time, plus size mermaid dresses can't fit well, then you have to return and reorder a custom size dress again, this way will waste your time and money, we usually suggest plus size girls order custom size dresses instead of plus size dresses, please try not choose plus size unless the error less than 1'' between your measurements and standard size.

Cetims will offer you a 90% refund if there is no quality problem but you are not satisfied with the product or you change your mind. We will take a 10% restocking fee(this cost is bank and platform handing fees not for us), which will automatically be deducted from your refund. Please notice we still charge the shipping fee and rush fee(if there is ) under this circumstance even if your order is free shipping order.
