    Damaged buy dirty return?

    Damaged buy dirty return? 4th Aug 18 at 5:38 PM
    I bought a dress from debenhams online. When i was trying it on i notice a loose thread so decided to send it back. When i was removing it i couldnt get the concealed zip down ( this is usual, i have poor grip) i managed to shimmy and turn it and got the zip down. In doing so id transfered a tiny amount of nail varnish on ( i thought my nail varnish was dry) so i tried nail varnish remover but instead of removing it, it smeared it and now the dress has a big dark patch.. the loose thread is a small thing in comparison, if id have loved the dress i would have just cut it off.

    Please can someone advise if i have the right of a faulty return still?

    Thank you.

    A single loose thread is hardly a fault, so this would be a change of mind return.

    You're still entitled to return it but expect the refund to be reduced (probably to zero) to account for the damage you've done.

    No way is this serious. Good effort, though!

    It!!!8217;s your own fault for not trying it on with dry nail varnish. You!!!8217;ve damaged it, it!!!8217;s yours. You may as well try and clean it to keep it

    No chance of a refund now.

    I got nail varnish on a dress once. A lot of perseverance with the nail polish remover later I can wear it again. If the dye doesn't run in it then it's worth trying since I agree you're stuck with the dress now.

    Rosemary, you are the only person to provide a reply that wasnt belittling and making me feel like a con woman. Thank you.
    I know the nail varnish was my fault and wouldnt have expected anything if it wasnt already damaged? I called debenhams and they advised if the dress is faulty, regardless im entitled to a refund. I took the dress back and thats what happened!!!
    I am more disappointed by what is usually a really helpful forum to give advice or ideas reacting negativly to a genuine question that nobody answered. Im now disheartened by thevforum but refunded.

    So now the manufacturer of the dress, who could have fixed a loose thread, is now stuck with a nail varnish damaged dress. Even worse would be if Debenhams put it back on the rack and another unfortunate person buys it. Nice

    I,d hardly call a loose thread faulty you damaged it then had the cheek to ask for a refund you should be ashamed...

    I'm not sure how you picked me up as being the only non accusatory poster! Plenty of other straightforward, useful posts were made before I got here.



    When you said loose thread I think I and most others were imagining a thread that just didn't get trimmed off properly. I have loads on garments I sew 'cos I very rarely go through thoroughly enough I'm guessing that isn't what you meant though given that you're getting a refund.



    maisie cat - I doubt they'd send the dress for repair. It's unlikely to be worth the cost even before it got nail polish on it.
