shipping & handling
We use the U.S. Post Office for shipping. Here are a few answers to some frequently asked questions about shipping.
How much is shipping?
Shipping charges depend on where you live in the world. Each order will show the avaliable shipping options for your geo location.
We can offer Priority Express Overnight Shipping on continental U.S. orders, so that is shown as an option.
Once I place my order, how long will it take to receive my bikini(s)?
We are able to ship most orders on the day that the order is placed, as long as they are placed by 12noon EST. Customers in the USA will normally receive their order within 4 to 5 business days. We do not ship on Saturdays or Sundays so orders placed on those days will ship on Monday. Some orders are hand made and may take 2 to 3 days longer before being shipped.
Do you offer express or overnight shipping?
We can offer Priority Express Overnight Shipping on continental U.S. orders, so that is shown as a shipping option. Some Priority Express Overnight Shipping order with addresses in smaller towns will take 2-3 days to arrive, this is a USPS determination, not a TBSW one.
International orders will typically take 10-14 business days to get to you from the date you place your order. If the package is delayed for customs clearance it can take up to 4 weeks to reach you. Some international shipments will experience customs clearance delays and we have no control over the customs clearance process.
Will there be Taxes and Customs Duties?
International shipments may be subject to customs duties and/or taxes upon arrival in the destination country. These fees are the sole responsibility of the purchaser. Rates will vary from country to country. Most countries do not have import fees however, please check with your local customs office or proper authority for rates if you are concerned about possible fees.
What type of packaging do you use?
Customers in the U.S. will have their orders packed in either a US Post Office priority mail envelope or a plain envelope. Our shipping envelope has a pink TBSW logo, our name and the return address. International orders are packed in a plain envelope. A customs form with a description of the contents may be required to appear on the outside of some international shipments. We list "bikini" as the contents at the value you paid.
