Caring for your items and cleaning

Washing your stagewear

You acknowledge that all items ordered from us are stage wear and are not intended to be swimwear. They should not be worn at the beach, submerged in water, exposed to sunlight, sand, sun lotion or heat and that we will not be liable for any damaged caused as a result of this.

Please do NOT machine wash anything you purchase from us. Do not use a hairdryer on your products. Do not expose them to sunlight or heat.

Two Pieces

Bikinis should be spot cleaned, or professionally cleaned* only. The delicacy of the designs and the metal connectors, and crystal embellishments will get damaged if you wash your costume in a machine, or with abrasive chemicals. Take extreme care when cleaning and treat it as you would a wedding dress that you love. Avoid getting perfumes, moisturisers, alcohol or any other chemicals on any part of the suit. 

If you must clean your costume, spot clean only with a gentle detergent, cloth and warm water and let it air dry flat. Tan may or may not come out with cleaning and that is to be expected. We cannot be responsible for any damage caused by washing and our best advice is that you wear your costume with a discreet liner so as to minimise the need to wash the suits as vigerously.

If you want a deeper clean, mix 1 cap of anti bac detergent in half a sink of warm water, soak your suit for 2-3 minutes and gently rub the dirty areas with your hands. Gently ring out your suit and hang to dry out of direct sunlight. You may experience some loss in crystals and discolouration to your metal hardware over time and this is normal. Both can be replaced. 

One Pieces

As above. Suits should be handled with care and professionally or spot cleaned only. Avoid getting perfumes, moisturisers or any other chemicals on any part of the suit. Tan may or may not come out with cleaning and that is to be expected.

Couture items should be handled, packed, and transported with extreme care.  We cannot be liable for any snapped chains, lost gems or damage caused by rough handling the products, not packaging them carefully, or failing to follow the care advice. Please treat your products with love and care.

Robes

Due to the custom printing and delicate fabric of the robes, these should not be machine washed hot so as to avoid any peeling, or crystals coming loose. You can cold wash, or ideally hand wash the robe using a bucket of warm water and detergent, but be sure to rinse thoroughly and avoid any vigorous scrubbing.

If you forget, and accidentally machine wash hot and the vinyls peel, you can iron them back down using a low heat for 10-15 seconds. Please ensure you use a protective sheet or layer of baking paper to look after your satin.

Tanning onesies and customised apparel

Our poly blend Tanzies should be washed on a cool, gentle wash. Due to the nature of the fabric and customisation, you want to avoid any hot temperatures and rough washes to ensure longevity in your tanning suit and avoid any shrinking.

If you forget, and accidentally use a hot machine wash and the vinyls peel, you can iron them back down using a low-medium  heat. Please ensure you use a protective sheet or layer of baking paper to look after your Tanzie.

 

If that doesn't work, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.

Theme Wear

Treat your costume like a delicate wedding dress you want to guard with your life! Theme wear often contains chains, gems, props and feathers that are fragile and should not be man-handled. You should store your theme wear in the box provided, in a cool, dry place and avoid getting in and out unless necessary. 

Try to avoid catching the chains on any sheer fabrics, and avoid roughing up the costume. Laces and finishes can be extremely delicate and can catch easily, so be gentle and handle with extreme care.

General

You may wish to resell your items so you will get more value from them if they are properly looked after. In most cases, it is just using common sense, but as a general rule, be gentle, and avoid any stretching of the costume, rough handling, and please take care. 

In some instance, we will offer a buy back so we can offer the same beautiful item to new customers in a pre loved, or rental arrangement.
