DRESS WITH CUSTOMISATIONS OPTIONS? (HEM & BRA CUPS):

Our personalised 'hem' & 'bra cup' options are an easy and ready-to-wear alteration service that saves you time.

However, before ordering a dress with customisation options, please keep in mind that we are unable to offer returns or exchanges on any dress that has been altered/customised to your personalised needs.

HEM LENGTH: Dresses that have been customised to your personal height no longer meet our standard length and sizing, and therefore cannot be re-sold. 

*Appropriate hem length can be a few cm above the ground or a few cm lapping onto the ground. Returns will not be accepted if you deem your hem length is 'incorrect', STUDIO MINC will adjust your dress to the measurements you provide, which is why taking the correct measurements and choosing the right size for you is important. 

BRA CUPS: Dresses that have added bra cups no longer meet standard condition. Removing sewn in bra cups can leave small, visible holes in the lining, and therefore cannot be re-sold.
