I ship USPS Priority insured with Delivery Confirmation. I have the farthest zone from my own listed, so if you are closer and a less expensive zone you will refunded any overages more than $1.00. I am happy to combine shipping on multiple items. Due
to the varied nature and weight of items in my store and all the crazy zones, I will need to calculate
multiple shipping and send you an invoice. The other option is to go ahead and purchase and I will refund you the difference. I refund all overcharges of more than $1.00. I am sorry for the inconvenience!

Please convo me with any questions at all.

Please read my policy page for more information about our shop and shipping.

I needed this bustier by a certain date and Julia made sure it was shipped to me in just a couple days. She is really caring in her messages, and packages your item really pretty! You can tell she honestly cares about her customers. Love my bustier & julia :)
