Frequently Asked Questions
Here’s a selection of common questions we receive. If your question isn’t answered, please send us a message using our contact form.
What Services Do You Offer?
Currently we offer two services. Our most popular service is an escorted shopping service tailored to your needs, where you will be accompanied on a city centre shopping trip by one (or more) of our fun and broadminded girls. We also offer a remote shopping service for the occasions when getting to the shops yourself may prove to be more challenging. You can ask us to acquire specific items on your behalf, or you can suggest a look and one of our girls will surprise you with a choice outfit to your budget and style. All items will be sent out first class under plain wrap to the location of your choice.
We have a dressing and storage service currently in development. Please join our mailing list for details.
Will anyone know I have used the service?
No. We need to know your real details, but we do not share this information with anyone – including your shopper – so your anonymity is 100% assured. We take care to ensure any emails sent between us do not include references to the service within the Sender name or the Subject. Items posted are always under plain cover.
How Much Does The Service Cost?
This depends very much on your requirements, including how long you wish to shop for, and how many shopping companions you require. When you complete a booking form we will get back to you with a quote, and will require cleared payment in full before the booking. Obviously, you are responsible for the cost of your own purchases, and we also ask that you cover the cost of any food or drinks you choose to purchase during the day. We aim to be able to provide something for most budgets.

Ultimately this will depend on your requirements and will be discussed before confirming a booking. Typically, We would try and match someone of a similar age to you, unless you have a different requirement. You may also require you shopper to dress in a particular way, and this can be discussed at the time of booking.
Can I book the same girl next time?
Yes, of course! In fact we want you too! Not only does this help you build confidence, but your shopper gets to know what you like and what suits you making for an improved shopping experience. It also tells us that our girl did something right! On the booking form, there is the opportunity to request a specific shopper.
