“Poor quality materials. Washed the outfit as it was going to be worn straight from hospital as a newborn. Followed the instructions to wash on 30degrees and it came out completely ruined, all shrivelled up and some parts stretched. When I first contacted, my message was read and ignored. Then I had to wait one week for a rude response telling me I’m lying and I have not cared or looked after the items and it’s my fault. Very poor customer service and they clearly only care about money not their customers. Absolute waste of my time and my money”
Good morning Olivia .
You have contacted us via instagram outside working hours late at night and yet a member of staff responded almost straight away , still you insisted the next morning after contacting me personally that you were ignored which simply isn't true . Though if we want to be reasonable even if no one had responded to you late at night it would also have been absolutely fine too as it was late at night outside working hours!
You claimed that we sold you a defective item which isn't the case! You then claimed that you had no idea what happened , that you washed the outfit you bought from us according to instructions and the outfit just got completely ruined and you kept mentioning the fact that you are pregnant and that somehow you would do us a favour essentially by paying for postage to send back an item that isn't eligible for refund since it got washed and ruined ..
Let me be absolutely clear here :
When i started investigating this issue on your behalf even though the second i saw your pictures i knew this item had been washed badly and dried harshly in the interest of being fair towards your i spend a lot of time liaising with my Supplier and the Manufacturer themselves ( people who work in the industry of garments over 20 years ) to ask for a second opinion .
Their opinion was that you did not follow the care instructions! You know this might sound odd to you but we do work 16 hours a day , we practically live within baby clothing and baby garments . We know how every garment washes , how it stretches , how it dries how long it will last and so on . If you think we can't tell what happened to a garment just by looking at a picture , really you need to think again!
To continue i have also called customers of ours who have bought this very same outfit as you and they all reported that the outfit has washed and dried great! Finally just so that I could be completely and 100% certain i had one of my staff actually take out of stock and wash one of these outfits and guess what.. it washed and dried perfectly great .. obviously we did follow the instructions ( which in another review you say don't exist but in this review you say you followed religiously ..... hm )
All in all you just tried to get a free ride out of us while making sure to keep reminding us in an attempt to maybe guilt trip us that you were pregnant .
Baby Iconic is a women founded , women led and women managed company . We had all given birth and we have all been pregnant and while we fully understand the hormonal and physical challenges especially in the last weeks of pregnancy , that might cause stress and unusual behaviour amongst people , we will not be extorted to hand out outfits or refunds to said people .. who clearly aren't truthful .
There will be absolutely no refund and no apology on our part . Furthermore we will flag this and your other review for dishonesty and will not hesitate to take further legal action should you continue to slander our company with unfounded and false accusations that we are in a position to prove are simple lies .
Good luck with you pregnancy
