FAQ

Hello Beautiful, thank you for your interest in our products. We hope this page answers your questions. Don't see your question answered? Please email info@tiabhuva.com and we'll be happy to help! 

General

1. How can I see estimated prices in my currency?

At the top right corner of our home page, you can choose your currency from the drop down menu. If your currency is not listed, please email info@tiabhuva.com.

2. Why does currency switch to CAD at checkout?

While we use the currency converter tool on our website to allow customers from all around the world to shop in their local currency, this should only be used as an estimate. All transactions are processed in CAD at current exchange rate at checkout. 

3. Do I have to pay customs if I'm ordering from outside of Canada?

 Please refer to our shipping policy page for all info regarding customs https://tiabhuva.com/pages/shipping-policy 

4. My country is not currently listed on your shipping page, how can I order your products?

If your country is not listed, please email info@tiabhuva.com with your mailing address and we will get back to you with a quote. All countries we currently ship to were a result of customers asking for them and we're always happy to add new destinations!

5. Do you have a storefront? Can I pick up my order?

We do not have a storefront and sell exclusively through our online store tiabhuva.com and ship to customers' address.

We also do not have any authorized resellers - tiabhuva.com is currently the only place to purchase our products.

6. Why don't you offer free shipping for international customers?

We wish we could! To offer our current product prices and level of service, we must charge our international customers a nominal fee for shipping. In return, you get tracked shipments and quick delivery (less than 7 business days once shipped to most countries around the world.) We know it's unnerving to order online and by offering tracked, quick delivery at a great price we aim to provide an easy, seamless shopping experience. 

Please note that ALL of our rates are per order and not per item - to reduce your shipping cost per item, we encourage all customers to place orders with friends & family!

Saree Silhouette

1. Is the Saree Silhouette comfortable for sitting cross-legged on the floor? 

Both Tia and many of our customers have worn it to poojas and weddings where guests are required to sit on the floor with no issues. However, for brides who are required to sit on the floor for extended periods of time, we recommend test-driving the Saree Silhouette before your big day. Everyone is different and your wedding day is not the time to wear any new style of undergarment for the first time!

2. Which colour do you recommend for most sarees?

This depends on what colour sarees you own/wear the most - for light coloured sarees, we recommend the nude Saree Silhouette and for dark coloured sarees we recommend the black Saree Silhouette. Red is a great option for brides - it is considered to be an auspicious colour and goes great under any silk saree (most common choice for manavarai and koorai wedding sarees). 

We don't recommend the Saree Silhouette under net or overly transparent sarees (unless the saree is black/nude/red) A great way to check is to lay the saree over black/nude/red coloured tights. 

3. Should I choose petite 36" length or regular 38" length?

We recommend petite 36" length for most 5'2" (158cm) and under and regular 38" length for most 5'3" (159cm) and over. If you're still unsure, measure the length of a maxi skirt you have that hits at your ankles (don't use pants because they fit your body differently).

A lot of our customers who are petite and bought regular length before we offered petite, wore it by folding it at the waist with no issues of bulging. This is great to remember if you want to wear it with heels as well as with flats. Get the regular length and fold it!

4. My Saree Silhouette is "sticking" to my saree - why is this happening?

This is due to static and is common in countries in the northern hemisphere. We recommend washing the skirt and hanging to dry. If you are short on time, try rubbing the skirt with a dryer sheet to neutralize it. 

5. I'm unsure about which size to order, can you help?

Of course! Please email info@tiabhuva.com with your waist and hip measurements as well as height and we would be happy to recommend a size!

6. Why do you recommend sizing down on the Saree Silhouettes?

Our skirts are made of a spandex blend material and are super stretchy. The measurements listed on our product page is of the skirt when relaxed. Depending on the size of the skirt, waist and hip measurements can stretch up to 8-12 inches. If you email info@tiabhuva.com we can recommend a size for tight fit and comfort fit.
