These terms and conditions govern all supply of goods and services ("products") by Inspire By Design ("Inspire By Design", "we, "us") to you, the purchaser of goods and services from us, including your use of the website at ("the website"). They are effective from 19 February 2021 and will replace all earlier Inspire By Design terms of trade and any conditions contained in any document used by you and purporting to have contractual effect.

We reserve the right to change these terms of trade by notice to you. Notice may be given by posting the revised terms and conditions on our website.

To make a purchase from our online shop you must be 18 years of age or over.

Purchases from our online shop may only be made by persons who are acquiring goods or services for their own use or consumption, and you must not acquire goods from us via the website for resupply (whether in trade or otherwise).

If you are purchasing on behalf of another entity such as a company you warrant you have the authorisation to agree to these terms and conditions on behalf of the entity.

Prices for goods and services stated on our website are exclusive of any applicable delivery charges.

We only deliver to New Zealand street addresses. The cost of delivery is as stated on our website and a total delivery cost will be provided in the order summary in your online shopping basket.

We will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that orders for tangible goods will be dispatched promptly after an order has been placed.

An invoice will be emailed to you at the email address you supply when you place your order. You are responsible for ensuring that your contact details are correct.

Payment options

We accept the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

Credit Card Security

All payments are processed via Stripe's secure payments system to ensure high levels of payment security and are subject to Stripe's terms and conditions.


Please note that for hygiene reasons we are unable to accept returns on swimwear, underwear or jewellery items that are worn in piercings. If ALL these criteria are met and the store confirms this, a full refund is offered which is processed by Inspire By Design.

If ANY of these criteria are not met, the item may either be accepted back for a Store credit, or, depending on the condition of the garment, as determined by the receiving store, returned to you as not acceptable for resale.

If you have decided to return an item please:

  • Contact the store immediately upon receipt of your item if there are no swing tags attached or the item is not in acceptable condition - the store may ask for photos to be sent.
  • Ensure the item is not left in an area where food is being cooked as many food smells can permeate a garment, making it unsaleable as a new item.
  • Ensure that when you try the garment on, that you avoid deodorant marks or heavy scents as these too can give the effect of the garment being worn and in unsaleable condition.
  • Leave swing tags attached until you are sure you are keeping the item.
  • Use a tracked courier service as delays in transit will affect the validity of your refund.

If you need to return an item please send the item(s) back to the store address from which you received your delivery. The store address will be on the packing slip/invoice that is included with your order.

Shipping and delivery

Shipping within New Zealand is calculated once the customer has entered their delivery address details. Shipping costs will be displayed at the time of Checkout for Customer approval.

We do not have to provide a refund if you have changed your mind about a particular purchase, so please choose carefully. If the goods are faulty, we will meet our obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act to provide a remedy.

We are confident that you will be happy with the quality and craftsmanship of our products. However, in the rare circumstances of an item being faulty, damaged or not fit for purpose, orders can be returned to us for a full refund.
