- Specs of vinyl, as each design is cut and weeded by hand, it is not uncommon for specs of vinyl to show up on garments. Unless this protrudes onto the main design this is not considered a defect.

- Zip imprint, as above is common on light colours and will come out with a wash and hang dry.

Delivery terms and timeframes
Delivery times as stated on the FAQ page are subject to delays and are heavily dependent on how many orders are being processed at one time. These time are to be used as an estimate ONLY and do not guarantee your item will arrive within the advised timeframe.
If the store is shut (over holidays and other circumstances) orders will not be shipped until the dates shown on the top of the store page. A day is considered a working day, Monday to Friday and does not include any published closures or bank holidays.
It is your responsibility to note any delays from our store page.
All orders over £20 are sent tracked delivery.
Delivery timeframes are goals, and can not always be met. Whilst we try out best to ensure that all delivery goals are met we do not take responsibility if a delivery is late or delayed. Once the items have been dropped off at the parcel drop off point or at the royal mail post office, there is nothing further we can do if there are delays.
You will receive no notice, compensation or gesture if your order is late/ delayed. We update the order tracker as linked on our store page every 7 working days, this is where we publish any updates and the status of your order.
Any orders containing items which are out of stock will not be dispatched until the item or colour choice is available again. We aim to restock every 12 weeks, again this is just an estimate.
Please be aware that shipping estimates are a GOAL and we do not guarantee to meet these. There may be a multitude of reasons which orders and emails are delayed, for any queries or questions please email us as usual.
Membership items additional terms
These apply in addition to all other terms, but are relevant only to membership items.
- You must inform us of any address/ email address changes by sending us an email.
- You must comply with group rules at all times.
- You must not be an admin or team member or rep for any competing or blacklisted groups, clubs or companies.
- If you are in any form of promotional or representative position for a female based club, company or community you MUST contact us before purchase - email@example.com to confirm details.
- You understand your membership can be revoked at any given time if you break club rules/ or if you meet the requirements specified below:
- People who do not live or fully identify as female
- Admins, owners or promoters of competing groups
- People who have been banned from any of our groups or forums
- People who openly commit driving offences
- Anyone who is an admin, moderator or promoter for any blacklisted groups
If you do not meet the decline criteria when you purchase your membership but later fall into one of the above categories you will be subject to membership termination.
You must make us aware of any changes of your situation, for example if you find yourself as a team member for what you may consider a competing group (another female based group for example) then you must make us aware within 48 hours of this change, if you fail to do so your membership will be terminated without any warning.
Termination of membership is not taken lightly, and will only happen if several admins are in agreement that your behaviour impacts the group negatively, for example if you post event links repeatedly into the VIP group where there is no post approvals. We tend to be slightly more lenient towards VIP members and group strikes, but all members only get one tag/warning. Once that single warning is given, if you continue to break group rules you will receive strikes as usual, once you hit three (all of which get recorded) you will be removed from the club without further warning or discussion and you will not be reimbursed for your membership costs. Once membership is revoked you will be banned from all applicable groups and services.
Membership will NOT be refunded if it is terminated after review.
We reserve the right to terminate membership of ANY member at admins discretion.
