How do I ensure the Saree blouse that I borrow fits?
Our saree enthusiasts want to make sure you look and feel fabulous for your event. When selecting your size, you will be able to choose according to your bust size and US dress size. Your bust size is the measurement under your arms around your chest. Bust size is not your bra size. We have correlatd which bust size best equates which US dress size for your convenience. We will also provide you with a second free back-up blouse to ensure that one of the blouses provided fits you. If you need any assistance while picking your blouse size, feel free to visit our Ins & Outs tab where you can find an even more detailed sizing chart. Also please feel free to e-mail our Sari enthusiasts at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or call us at (888)-993-7623,and we would happy to give you our opinion when it comes to fitting.
A back up blouse is a second optional blouse that we send with your order when you borrow a saree from us. We send this back up blouse to you for FREE. You can choose your preferred back-up blouse size while placing your order and we will send you a back up blouse that best matches the Saree that you have borrowed.
We at Borrow it Bindaas want you to be able to wear you gorgeous Saree, immediately-without having to worry about going out and finding a tailor to stitch you a blouse and then have to wait even longer to be able to wear your Saree. As an added service, so you can wear your Saree instantly, we will have your blouse stitched for you according to the size you choose. We will also leave some margin inside the blouse for you, just in case you may want to adjust the size.
A petticoat is a drawstring underskirt that is worn before putting the actual saree on. The petticoat holds the saree up and gives the saree structure on your body. A petticoat comes in two sizes-regular and long. Sizing is determined by your height. A regular petticoat fits women that are between 5’0-5’4. A long petticoat fits women that are 5’5 and above. Once your Saree order is placed, as an added service we will send you a personalized email asking you what your preferred petticoat size is. Please keep in mind if you are wearing heels with your Saree to add those inches to your height, when deciding between a regular and long peticoat. For example: if your height is 5’4 but you will be wearing 3inch heels with your Saree, your best bet would be to request a long petticoat as your height will be 5’7.
We don’t ship anything unless it has been dry cleaned, and checked thoroughly by our quality control team. Borrow It Bindaas has specifically partnered up with a dry-cleaning team who specialize in dry cleaning Sarees to ensure each of our Sarees are in like-new condition. Each saree goes through a strict dry cleaning and quality control process before it is ready to be borrowed again. The Borrow It Bindaas team makes sure that our saree's and accessories are in excellent condition before we make them available for borrowing and we make no compromise on our quality of products.
All of our accessories are hand cleaned and sanitized by our specialized team who take extra care in ensuring that every detail and piece is cleaned and sanitized ready for the next borrow. For your own peace of mind we wil provide a sanitzing wipe and extra earring backings when sending you accessories.
No need to panic! We completely understand that some wear and tear is bound to happen. Our team of dry cleaners and seamstresses are able to take care of most minor damages for Sarees and we understand that with accessories there are chances of losing a backing, or a stone falling out etc. The $5.00 insurance charge fee for Sarees and the $3 Insurance fee for accessories covers you for these types of instances. If there is significant damage please send us an email at email@example.com and/or call us at (888)-993-7623. We reserve the right to handle each incident on a case by case basis. If there is significant damage that goes beyond wear and tear, your credit card will be charged with the repair charge or full replacement fee that is estimated by us
