              • Why am I being charged sales tax? 
                • Cupid Intimates is required by law to collect any state, county, and local sales taxes applicable to purchases that are to be shipped to states in which we primarily do business.  Currently, orders for delivery to Oklahoma, and some for delivery to New York State, are the only ones which qualify for such treatment.  For these orders, we’ll determine the appropriate sales tax and add it to the purchase total.  Whenever such orders are returned to us, we refund this tax, along with the item’s original purchase price.
                • PLEASE NOTE: Though we’re currently only obligated to charge sales tax on orders shipped to Oklahoma, and some shipped to New York State, you may still be obligated to pay sales/use tax on your online purchase to your state, county, and/or local taxing authority even when sales tax is NOT applied to your order by us.  Please visit your state taxing authority’s website for more information.

              • Why am I having difficulty placing an order?
                • If you’re experiencing technical problems while trying to place an order, the cause may be a problem with your computer or mobile device, your internet connection, our site, or an inconsistency in the information you’re providing.  To see whether we can help you, please call our customer service team at 1-800-273-1659 and select Option 2.

              • What’s your return policy?

                • Can I exchange an item?
                  • We’re sorry, but we cannot process an “exchange” transaction typical of brick & mortar retailers.  If you’d like to return something you’ve ordered from us, and purchase another item, you’ll need to first complete a “return” transaction and then create a separate, second order.  For information on completing a return, please review our Return & Cancellation Policies.

                • I will end up placing two separate orders today that, together, will total more than $50. Will they qualify for free shipping?
                  • We’re sorry, no.  In order to obtain free shipping, the $50 total purchase price can only be determined by adding together the prices of all merchandise included in one particular order, after applying any relevant discounts or special promotions, and excluding any applicable sales taxes.

                • I want to place an order today that will total more than $50. Can I select UPS Next Day Air®, UPS 2nd Day Air®, FedEx Standard Overnight®, FedEx 2Day®, or Priority Mail Express® as my free-shipping method?
                  • We’re sorry, no. Free Shipping via Priority Mail® from the USPS is the only method that may be used in conjunction with our free-shipping program.

                • How can I expedite my order?
                  • For a greater charge, we offer the FedEx Standard Overnight®, FedEx 2Day®, UPS Next Day Air®, UPS 2nd Day Air®, and Priority Mail Express® premium shipping options. But please keep in mind that an additional 72 hours (for the USPS selection) and 48 hours (for the FedEx and UPS selections) of order-processing time must always be added to the delivery time of whichever premium shipping option you choose.

                • When will my order ship? 
                  • All orders initiated by the USPS ship within 72 hours after order confirmation. All orders initiated by FedEx (including those sent via FedEx SmartPost®) and UPS ship within 48 hours after order confirmation. Please note that these 72-hour and 48-hour periods do NOT include weekends or holidays, and orders are not shipped on weekends or holidays.

                • How are your shipping rates determined?
                  • Shipping rates are determined by the USPS, FedEx, and UPS and are based on the weight and destination of the order.

                • How long will it take for my order to arrive?
                  • The total time it takes for an order to be delivered depends on several factors including the delivery option selected, the location of the delivery address, and the weather.  Please see our Shipping Policy for more details.

                • Can I change the delivery address of my order?
                  • You can change the delivery address of your order PRIOR to placing the order by returning to the shipping information section of the checkout process. Once an order has been placed, however, the delivery address can only be changed by canceling the order and placing a new one. But please keep in mind that orders CANNOT be canceled after 12 noon Central following the time the order was originally placed. After 12 noon Central, the order will be shipped to the delivery address specified.

                • Do you ship to addresses outside of the United States?
                  • We’re sorry, no, not at this time.  However, some of our online retail partners do.  Please call our customer service team at 1-800-273-1659 and select Option 1, and they can help you determine if the product you’re looking for can be ordered from one of them.

                • To which locations do you ship within the United States?
                  • We currently ship to addresses in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. We also ship to P.O. Boxes in these destinations. We’re sorry, but we currently do not ship to APO/FPO addresses or any addresses in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, or American Samoa.

                • What is FedEx SmartPost®?
                  • One of the delivery options we offer, FedEx SmartPost® is a joint venture between FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service. For a reduced price and a lengthier, fulfilment period, FedEx initiates the shipment process by picking up the package at our Distribution Center and transporting it to a USPS facility close to the package’s final destination. There, the USPS completes the shipment process by delivering the package with the customer’s daily mail.

                • Since it combines the services of both FedEx and the USPS, how do I track the status of my FedEx SmartPost® delivery?
                  • Even though your FedEx SmartPost® shipment will change hands from FedEx to the USPS during transit, you can use your FedEx tracking number at to track the status of your package’s entire journey.

                  • Your Shipping Policy says that you offer the following delivery options:  FedEx Standard Overnight®, FedEx 2Day®, FedEx Home Delivery®, FedEx Ground®, FedEx SmartPost®, UPS Next Day Air®, UPS 2nd Day Air®, UPS Ground, Priority Mail Express® and Priority Mail® from the USPS, and Free Shipping.  Why don't all of these choices appear when it's time for me to select my order's delivery method?
                    • Though we do indeed offer all of these shipping options, not every option is applicable to every order. For example, some options aren’t available for certain geographic destinations, due to time and cost constraints. Other options aren’t available for business destinations; one isn’t available for residential ones. And only some (those completed by the USPS) are available for P.O. Box destinations. Finally, Free Shipping is available only for orders totaling $50.00 or more and is only offered via Priority Mail®.

                  Brands, Products, and Features

                  • Why are there price differences among the four brands?
                    • The four brands are made using different fabrics, findings, features, construction techniques, and combinations of these factors. Differences in the total cost of their labor and material combinations lead to the variations in prices.  Despite these differences, keep in mind that the best shaper is the one that’s right for you and your budget.  When you look great and feel confident, you know you’ve found the best garment for you, regardless of its price.

                  • How do I figure out my correct size for various pieces of intimate apparel?
                    • Please refer to our How To Fit page.   It explains how to properly determine your waist, hip, band, and cup sizes, and provides conversion charts that show how garment sizes correspond to those measurements.

                  • I like bodybriefers because they make me look better, but they’re so uncomfortable.   Can you suggest any alternatives?
                    • This silhouette isn’t for every woman.  Sometimes referred to as “body shapers” or “all-in-ones,” bodybriefers are designed for women of average height who also have balanced bust-to-waist-to-hip ratios.  If this doesn’t describe you, here’s a solution:  wear a combination of two separate shapewear pieces – one made for the upper half, and the other made for the lower half, of the body.   Separates provide fit flexibility and create a suit of underwear that best fits the body.
                    • If only the bra portion of a bodybriefer causes you discomfort, you might also try combining your own, favorite bra with a body torsette or thigh-slimming torsette.

                  • Do you make pregnancy or post-partum shapewear?
                    • We don’t make shapewear specifically designed for use during pregnancy or the post-partum-recovery period.  We recommend that you consult with your doctor about shapewear that may be suitable for you to wear during these times.

                  • Do you make garments specifically for men?
                    • We’re sorry, no, not at this time.

                  • Can you explain the differences among your shapewear’s levels of control? 
                    • Selecting a control level is all about achieving the balance of comfort and appearance results that’s right for you and your particular situation.  Each of our brands has its own set of control levels.  Click on the following links to learn more about what each level is designed to achieve, and how each one compares to all others:

                    • What is Dynamic Stretch Control®/DSC®?
                      • Panels have long allowed shapewear to provide additional, targeted control to address problem areas.  But the performance of traditional panels has always been constrained by the needs to use rigid panel fabrics, attach panels to garment seams, or fasten the entire surfaces of panels to garments.  These factors have limited the stretch, and reduced the fit adjustability, of paneled shapewear.

                  We’ve invented a method to place flexible, no-show panels - of any size - anywhere on garments, independent of seams, and to do so while fastening them only at their perimeters.  Though the panels deliver the expected amount of targeted control, the spacing between the panels and the garment seams, as well as the panels’ flexibility, give the garments greater overall stretch, fit adjustability, and comfort.  This combination of targeted control and stretch, that adapts to the needs of the wearer, is known as Dynamic Stretch Control® or DSC®.  It’s something that anyone who’s in between sizes, or experiences weight gain or loss, will truly appreciate.

                  • What is the Wonderful Edge®?
                    • The Wonderful Edge® is a patented (U.S. Patent No. 7,228,809), silicone finish placed at the leg openings, waists, tops, and bottoms of many of our products.  It prevents these garments from riding up, rolling down, or producing wedgies.  Applied directly to our fabrics without the need for seams or elastics, it never creates lines and remains invisible under all types of fashions.  And, since it incorporates many, distinct rows of silicone - not just a single, rigid band - that stretch with our fabrics, the Wonderful Edge® is surprisingly breathable, cool, and comfortable.

                  • What’s the difference between the styles of the Naomi & Nicole® Clean Finish Microfiber panty collection and those of the Naomi & Nicole® Microfiber panty collection?
                    • While the styles of both collections are made with the same microfiber fabric and include our patented Wonderful Edge® feature at the legs, the Clean Finish styles are designed with no-sew waist and leg openings. The edges of the main fabric are simply folded back onto themselves using an adhesive film.

                  Garment Care

                  • How should I care for my new piece of shapewear or pair of panties? 
                    • Before washing and drying your garments, remember to read their care labels for instructions on how to do so properly so that they’ll retain their form and function, and last as long as possible.  All garments have labels that display the materials out of which they’re made and instructions about how they should best be washed and dried.

                  Product Availability

                  • I’m interested in buying one of your styles.  How can I find the stores nearest to me that sell it?

                      • Enter the zip code of the area in which you’d like the stores to be located and click the “Go” button.
                      • The next page to appear will contain a list of all stores within a 10-mile radius of the zip code you entered that normally carry the style you’re looking for.  This list will show the store’s name and address, as well as its phone number in some cases.
                      • It’s important to keep in mind that this list only shows which stores normally carry the style.  It doesn’t reflect real-time inventory.  Please call or visit the store to determine whether your style, in the size and color you want, is currently available.
                      • To expand the area in which you’d like the stores to be located,

                  • Do you sell your products in stores in Canada or Mexico?

                  Intimates Problems

                  • What does “VPL” mean?
                    • Visible panty lines.  These are the lines on the backsides of pants or skirts created by the leg openings of many panty silhouettes and shapewear briefs.  They’re caused by the elastics or seams that finish the garments.  VPLs can be eliminated by choosing shapewear and panties made with the Wonderful Edge®.

                  • Why does my hi-waist garment roll down from its top? 
                    • If your shaper constantly rolls down across your tummy, you’re wearing a size that’s too small for you.  Try moving up to a larger size.

                  • Why does my thigh slimmer roll up from the bottoms of its legs?
                    • If your thigh slimmer constantly rolls up over your legs, you’re wearing a size that’s too small for you.  Try moving up to a larger size.

                  • Why do I get wedgies?
                    • Women get wedgies because the underwear they wear is just too small or too big, or it’s made with a fabric that doesn’t sufficiently stretch.  To prevent wedgies, make sure to choose a correctly-sized garment made with our breathable Wonderful Edge® silicone finish placed at the legs.  This will also eliminate visible panty lines.

                  • Why do my bra straps dig into my shoulders?
                    • Bra straps shouldn’t create painful dents in your shoulders; in fact, straps should carry only a minimal amount of breast weight.  When wearing a properly-fitting bra, the straps should do only 20% of the support work.  The band should provide the other 80%.  To eliminate the “dig,” try choosing a bra with a smaller band size.  This way, your band will be more supportive and your shoulders will bear less of the weight of your breasts.  You may need to use crossover bra cup sizing to maintain the correct, overall fit for your body.
                    • Also, if you wear a cup size larger than a D, it’s a good idea to look for bras with wider straps.

                  • Do you have any tips for making shapewear more user-friendly when “nature calls?” 
                    • Shapewear should never make using the restroom problematic.  If you choose a garment that has a hook-and-eye-crotch closure, simply unfasten it and tuck it up and out of the way when nature calls.  If your garment has a split crotch – commonly incorporated into bodybriefers with legs that have a mid-thigh length – you may want to pull the garment down to use the facilities.  Some people have no problem using spilt crotches; others struggle with success.  Keep in mind that, when wearing any new style of shapewear, it’s always a good idea to practice using the restroom at home before wearing the garment in public.   You’ll want to decide ahead of time how you’ll deal with the situation.  Don’t wait until you’re all dressed up and under pressure.
