Where is my order notification?
When you place an order, you will receive an email confirmation to the email address you provided at checkout. If for some reason you haven’t received any emails from us, please check your spam folder, and double check you entered your email address correctly. If you still haven’t received one from us after 24 hours, please get in touch at email@example.com.
Can I amend or cancel my order after it has been placed?
Our warehouse process orders as quickly as possible. In the instance that you would like to amend or cancel your order please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible with your name, order number and full address. If your order has already been processed for despatch, then unfortunately we will be unable to amend your order and you will need to return the order to us at your own expense. If your order has not yet been shipped, we will then process your cancellation or amendment.
Can I track my order?
Yes, once your order has been shipped you will receive a shipping confirmation email with a link to track your package.
Why are there no updates on my tracking?
A tracking number for your parcel is generated as soon as your order has been despatched by our warehouse. It can then take up to 2 working days for your tracking information to be updated by the shipping provider.
If you still can't see any updates to your tracking after this timeframe, please get in touch with us at email@example.com and we will look into this for you.
My order is being returned to sender, what happens now?
If you miss the window for collection of your parcel from your local collection point, your parcel will be returned to sender. Please note that in this case, the original shipping costs for your order are non-refundable.
It can take up to 4 weeks for an international return to reach our warehouse. Once it has been received, it will be processed by our returns team and you will be issued with a refund, of which you will be notified via email. For more info on refunds, please see Returns & Exchanges.
Which countries do you deliver to?
We ship internationally to most countries. If you have any concerns about your international delivery address, feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will my parcel incur any additional customs or import duties?
If you are ordering from outside of the UK or EU, we offer the opportunity to pre-pay any import duties and taxes for applicable shipping destinations at checkout. To do so, the express shipping option must be selected. Pre-payment prices will be calculated and can then be selected. This will prevent any unexpected fees on arrival in the destination country. If this option is not chosen, any import duties and taxes may be charged once your parcel has reached its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.
Unfortunately we have no control over these charges as customs policies vary by country. Check your local customs if you are unsure about your country’s duties fees.
Does Brexit affect my order if I’m based in the EU?
Although the UK is no longer a part of the EU, your shopping experience on our website will not be affected. As a result of Brexit, customers from the EU would usually have to pay additional taxes and customs charges when shopping from UK companies. However, Dora Larsen will cover these expenses so you can shop in confidence, knowing the price you see online is the one you’ll pay.
Returns and exchanges
I have received my order but one of my items is missing, what do I do?
If there is something missing from your order please e-mail us at email@example.com with your name, order number and let us know what item is missing. If your parcel looks as though it has been damaged or tampered with in transit, then please also include a photo.
We will then investigate this missing item with our warehouse and shipping provider. Once we have reached a resolution, we will be able to offer you a replacement if the stock is available, or a refund if the item is sold out.
I have received an incorrect item with my order, what do I do?
We aim to get your order right every time, but unfortunately we do occasionally make mistakes (we’re only human!)
If the item you have received is not what you originally ordered, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, order number and please also specify the item that has been sent incorrectly, along with the item that you originally ordered.
My order arrived faulty, what should I do?
We are sorry to hear that you have received a faulty item - this is very unusual. We rigorously test all of our products to ensure the highest possible quality. We also implement quality checks to each product before they are packaged and sent out to you. In the unfortunate event that you have received a product that is not up to standard, please email us at email@example.com with your name and order number, along with a photo and a short description of the fault so that we can get this resolved as soon as possible.
How do I return or exchange something?
We have tried to make returns and exchanges as simple as possible.
We offer free returns to all UK customers. Complete the returns form included in your package, then head to our Royal Mail returns portal and follow the steps to create your label.
For international customers, we are pleased to offer convenient returns through our international returns portal. Through the returns portal, you can choose to cover the returns shipping in advance, or if you choose the standard returns option, a standard shipping rate will be deducted from your refund to cover the cost of returns shipping.
Purchased items are exchangeable for a different size and/or colour of the same style. Please mark on your returns form what you’d like to exchange for. All exchanges are based on stock availability. Should you want to exchange for an alternative style, please return your item/s to us for a refund and purchase the new piece separately on our website.
See our Returns & Exchanges page for our more info and our full policies.

The product I want is out of stock, what do I do?
We launch seasonal collections, so it might occur that products go out of stock during the season. We sometimes re-stock products throughout the season, but it’s difficult to know exactly when. The best thing to do is to sign up to re-stock email notifications on the product pages, so that you can be notified as soon as your size comes back in. We refresh our colour combinations and styles each season. Make sure you are signed up to our newsletter to hear about new product launches.
Do you plan to extend your size range?
As a small brand, we are constantly balancing our ability to increase our size range with minimum order quantities required by our factory. As we continue to grow, we will be increasing our size range as demand also grows, so thank you for your patience! We’ll update you through our social media channels and our newsletter if and when we add new sizes.
Is your packaging sustainable?
All of our packaging is either made from 100% recycled materials (and is recyclable), or is fully compostable.

Is your lingerie sustainable?
We are a small family-run company committed to responsible business practices.
We reduce our carbon footprint by using fabrics and trims bought close to where they are manufactured, and do not order to fulfil high minimum order quantities with left-over wastage. All of our fabrics are OEKO-TEX certified, which means they were made without the use of harmful chemicals. Our mission, by the end of 2021, is for 100% of our laces to be produced using recycled materials.

Is your Sleepwear Collection sustainable?
Our Sleepwear Collection is crafted from responsibly sourced, fully biodegradable, organic cotton and linen that produce lower cO2emissions and utilise less water than conventional cotton and synthetic fabrics. Organic cotton has the same quality as standard cotton but not the negative impact on the environment. It is grown without pesticides or fertilisers. Organic farmers use ancestral methods to preserve the soil and therefore are not exposed to harmful substances.
How can I take good care of my lingerie and sleepwear?
Each product comes with a care label with advised washing instructions. Specific care instructions can also be found on the product pages. We also have a detailed guide on how best to prolong the life of your new pieces here.
How do I figure out my bra size?
How do I know if my bra fits correctly?
We know how difficult it can be to find the perfect fitting bra. We've put together this guide to make it easier to know what to look for when trying one on.
What style is good for my body shape?
Don’t know which style to go for? See our style guide to help find the most flattering shape(s) for you.
Can you wear the Sleepwear Collection outside?
Our Sleepwear Collection has been designed to be worn inside and outdoors, too. It's made from ultra soft organic cotton and linen, so it's comfortable and breathable for wearing in bed, however the colours, cut and ruffle details mean it's almost too good to hide. Style up and team with your favourite accessories for trips to the beach, picnics in the park or anywhere you fancy really.
I’m pregnant / breastfeeding, are your bras still suitable for me?
As your body changes during pregnancy and breastfeeding, additional room is often required in the band and cup of the bra. If you are pregnant speak to your medical practitioner for their advice. We can also offer you some (non-medical) advice, purely based on our own experience with wearing bras either pregnant or breastfeeding. All of our non-wired styles are good for pregnancy as the band sits comfortably on a growing belly. For breastfeeding, we recommend our triangle bras with removable padding, as the pads catch any leaking milk from showing through a top.
When will you respond to my enquiry?
We aim to respond to all enquiries within two working days. If you have emailed over the weekend, then it may take a little longer for us to respond. We work through enquiries chronologically in a way that is fair to everybody.
I have a different question about my order...
If your question is not answered by our FAQs, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and someone from our team will be in touch as soon as they can.
Please also note, we receive a high volume of messages on our social media channels, and thus can only respond to order related queries via email.
