Hello, thank you for finding us..
The Unique You is just me, we are online only and have been running since February of 2013. It originally came about as I am plus size and finding fashion that I liked and that fitted was a challenge, the main problem I had was that most online sites selling Plus Sizes only had regular sized models, now I know this has changed in recent times which is a great thing - but you need to know what something is going to look like when you buy which is why I get in front of the camera, I am a curvy 18 - 20. By doing this I can also report on fit & function, it can vary between brands, fabrics and cuts so I let you know accurately.. I am often supplied images from the brands that I stock so I also post them for a visual comparison.
About the brands
I stock brands that are Australian owned in sizes 14 to 24, that use mainly natural fabrics and do manufacture in an ethical manner, we have to look after the environment and the people in it, so I support brands that do this and hope that you will too.. This can come at a higher price but you get a piece of fashion that will last, will not pil, fade or lose shape and you know that minimal damage was done in the production of the fabric and the garment. The brands that I currently stock are Kita Ku | Orientique | Advocado Plus | Bagira | PQ Collection | Goddess on the Go | Kiik Luxe | Holmes & Fallon | High style knit wear . I place indent orders which means that I am ordering months ahead so restocking is not usually an option, so if you see something that you love - I suggest that you make your decision fairly quickly!
Moving around our site
All new products go into the Newbies collection, so it is a good idea to check this often, our front page gives you a micro view of what we have in store, just click on any image for an overall look at what is available. Once you click into individual products you can see the detailed description and size chart to be able to make your choice easily.
I do order in full size ranges, when there is only one left - that could be any size - then it goes into the Clearance Collection and the price is cut in half, the same premium quality at discount prices so you really win if your size is there, but please be aware as all sales are final on anything in this Collection, no returns.
Options to complete your purchase
Many payment options are offered, you can select Pay Pal where you can use your account balance or use a credit card of your choice. You can chose to use your credit card directly (managed by Stripe) accepting Visa, Mastercard and American Express. You can also select Afterpay, your order is shipped straight away but you pay over 4 fortnightly installments - a great way to Shop Now and Pay Later.
You are rewarded
I love to reward my customers, starting with $15.00 off your very first order, just submit your email on the pop up.. I send newsletters when sales or new products are released so you are always up to date, my customers then become members and get 20% off all future purchases.
I normally pick and post on the same day from Adelaide by using the online Mybusiness Australia Post system, free if your order is over $60.00.
I hope that you enjoy your shopping experience with The Unique You, I welcome all feedback with ways that I can improve and ideas with which brands that you would like to see in stock. Of course it goes without saying that if you are not completely happy with your purchase we offer refund or exchange where stock allows (with the exception of Clearance items), just reach out to me on the contact channels.
Warm regards and welcome, I hope that you find something that you love.
