Returns + Exchanges

Please contact our team here, disclosing your order information and the reason for return. Once approved you can lodge the return at your local post office by sending the item to us at:

Sentani Boutique,
Shop 24/43 Lang Parade,
Milton, QLD 4064.

Please include your invoice/order information inside.

Returns and exchanges are to be posted back at the customer’s expense and are non refundable. If you utilised our “free shipping” on your order, this cost ($20 AUD) will be deducted from your store credit unless the item is faulty. If you have changed your mind (picked the wrong colour or size) on a full priced garment we will happily assist you in exchanging it for another product of the same value. Please include a pre-paid, pre-filled post satchel with your return, so that we can easily send you your exchanged dress.

Once we have received your item it will be inspected by our Quality Control team. We will issue you with store credit as long as the item is in its original condition (clean, unworn. un-altered, not damaged in any way, and with the tags intact). This store credit is valid for 1 year from the original order date and is non-transferrable. 

  • We do not provide refunds for change of mind, only store credit.
  • You must contact our customer service team within 7 days of receiving your item to be granted store credit. This includes faulty items.
  • All returns and exchanges must be posted back at the customer’s expense and are non-refundable.
  • Unauthorised returns will be sent back to the original address. We may take additional payment to cover our shipping costs back to you.
  • Sentani Boutique takes no responsibility for lost or damaged returns. We highly recommend the use of traceable mail.
  • We reserve the right to cancel, and refund an order if it becomes unavailable.
  • Colours displayed on our website may vary from different devices. External factors including lighting/photography may also skew the colour of the garment. Requesting a return for this reason will not be approved.


Pre-Order Returns

Our pre-order and backorder dresses are specially ordered for you, and are not normally offered for sale. This means that we are not able to offer any refunds or exchanges on these pieces. The only way to not incur a fee for cancellation is to do so within 24 hours of the initial order. After this time if you wish to cancel, the fee is 50% of the order value and is redeemable in a store credit. i.e if the dress price was $500, the fee will be $250 and you will receive a $250 store credit. This sum covers the cost of any administration, fabric sourcing, pattern construction and manufacturers fees associated with your order.

PLEASE NOTE: Pre-order and backorder dresses are made to the standard size charts, and may still require alterations when you receive it. We will often ask for your measurements during the ordering process, but this is only to ensure that you will fit that standard size.


Sale Items

Items purchased at a sale price or during any promotional period is considered a final sale. From style age, to stock availability, there are various reasons why a dress may be discounted. Sale items may be sourced from our showroom, or from our warehouse. Dresses in our “sample sale” are being sold at a heavily discounted price due to the fact that it is an ex-sample; meaning it has either been tried on in our showroom, or used for a photoshoot. There are to be no returns, exchanges or cancellations allowed for these items. If you’d like to know anything else about the exact condition of a gown, please contact us here.


Sample Sale

Sample gowns are special items, not normally offered for purchase. For this reason, all sales on sample items are final. We do not accept returns, exchanges or refunds on these pieces. By purchasing, you agree that you understand your sample dress is not in brand new condition, and may have faults. Any cleaning or repairs are to be completed at your own expense if you deem necessary. We are not able to provide additional images or close up photos of gowns, but they can usually be viewed in person at our Brisbane Boutique upon request.


Faulty Items

All of our garments are thoroughly checked by our experienced team when they arrive to us- but sometimes issues are only found when a dress is first tried on. Items that we consider faulty are those that are received by you in a damaged condition. We will always attempt to repair your item first, and will replace it if we are unable to restore it (excludes sample items, as above).

Please note: Regular wear and tear to a product is not a sign that the item is faulty; our garments are delicate so please take note of the product care labels. If you have purchased a dress crafted from a type of glitter fabric, fall-out is completely normal and should be expected due to its delicate nature. As glitter is an intended feature of the product and mentioned in the item description, this will not be treated as a fault.

If you believe you have received a damaged item, please contact us here with a description, and any images.


If you have any questions, we always recommend contacting our customer service team for assistance before placing your order. May it be regarding sizing concerns, fabric colour or anything else, we’re here to help! Online returns and exchanges may be accepted according to our returns criteria below. This returns policy is written in accordance with Australian Consumer Law, which is managed by the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC).
