We do ship internationally, and we offer many different types of shipping to facilitate your needs. Due to Covid-19, the regular postal services are often using sea freight due to lack of air cargo space, and as a result international mail shipments can take 1-2 months. FedEx and DHL are however still operating fast services. Please be aware that customs fees incurred by international orders are not paid by us or included in our shipping costs.
We offer flat rate shipping using the DHL E-Commerce option for $3 if you order is under $40 and within the Continental United States. If the order is being shipped to Canada, we offer $6 flat rate shipping for orders under $40.
All orders are sent in discreet plain mailing envelopes or boxes with your name and address label affixed to the front. Our company name does not appear in full on the outside of packages sent by mail. The sender on the return address reads “BA” only. There is no other indication at all as to what is in your package. Additionally your credit card statement will show the charge is from "Body Aware".
You will receive an email from us confirming that your order has been shipped and will provide you with any available tracking information based on which shipping service you selected during checkout. If you did not receive these emails please check your spam or junk mail folder before contacting us.
Please note that regular airmail service from the USA to overseas destinations is generally not trackable beyond the USA. You will need to select Priority or Fedex shipping options during checkout to access full tracking information for overseas destinations.
As all manufacturers have different sizing standards, you may not be the same size in our products as you are in another company's clothing. Please see our size chart which can be viewed on each product for proper sizing of an item. For tank tops and bodysuits, we suggest determining the size by your chest measurement. For all other items, you should use your waist measurement. Our styles tend to follow European standards, where items are designed to be low on the waist and figure hugging. If you are more comfortable with a looser fit, you may prefer to order a size up.
Orders are processed on receipt and so it is not possible to cancel your order once it has entered the processing stream which occurs when you receive an email or SMS confirmation of the order.
If you made a mistake on a size or product during ordering, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. We ship continuously throughout the day but we may be able to pull a package and substitute the correct item.
If it is too late for us to be able to correct an order, you can place another order for the item(s) you wanted instead, and then, when you receive the original order, you can return it for a refund according to our Returns Policy.
Finally, please choose carefully, as we do not offer refunds for change of mind.
We field these types of questions very frequently and unfortunately the answer is very nuanced and there are several different factors that determine the answers. First, we do not manufacture our own fabrics and so we are not always able to find fabrics that we have used in the past to make the same product. Likewise we can’t always find fabrics in a variety of colors. Second, if an item did not sell very well, we usually do not make more of the style and instead reserve this space for new items. Third, variety is the spice of life. Although there are some products that we have restocked for years after their inception and will continue to carry indefinitely. We have always prided ourselves on our constantly changing lineup of silhouettes and materials. Fashion is a very fluid artform that is frequently reinvigorated with new styles and motifs that are a product of their time. If there is a piece from our site that you haven’t seen in years, chances are we have moved on to bigger and better things.
Although we have some items that have a matching top or bottom, we usually never sell them in a combined set because some customers prefer to order different sizes in the bottom/top or simply don’t want one or the other. We will sometimes depict the matching items in our product photography to help upsell these products, this does not mean we sell them together. Please read product titles and descriptions carefully before ordering because we clearly state what item you are purchasing when ordering from a product’s page.
Unfortunately, we do not currently back order or reserve items for purchase. Our items are often of a limited quality and so to keep things fair, our customer purchasing policy has always been first come, first served. Our regular customers know that we announce new products as they come out through our newsletter emails and subscribing to our newsletter is the best way to find out when a product is initially launched or back in stock.
Though our business did begin as a mail order company, we no longer use catalogs as a form of marketing.
We do have the option of including photos in reviews. If you would like to add a photo of yourself wearing a Body Aware product in a review, we do have a couple of requirements. 1. Not X rated! 2. Semi professionally posed in good lighting, against either a plain wall or else in an interesting location.
Unfortunately photos taken of a mirror reflection in the yellow light of a bathroom or bedroom while holding the camera are rarely flattering. We recommend using the self timer against a plain background preferably in daylight or try using flash. Crop the photo if you do not want to show your face. We would love for the site to become a repository of quality photos of our products being worn by all body types. We reserve the right to not publish photos not meeting these guidelines.
