Do ordering clothes online attract Customs? Ask Imbb

Ask IMBB Gang

Bhumycka Asks:

You know people keep asking you in the comments section if cosmetics ordered from abroad attract customs? well, you usually say ‘no’. I am not sure whether that is specific to the website you order from or if it is the norm regardless of whichever website one orders from. So my question is.. have you ever ordered clothing items from abroad and do they attract custom charges? Ahem. I want to..errr.. order lingerie. i think they would be treated as clothing items. Dont laugh, but i badly need to order them jus now coz unbelievably enough i never manage to find correct sizes in india.And my post pregnancy sizes are not making my life any easier. Plz tell me if you think this sort of an item will be detained at customs and i will need to make an embarrassing trip to those guys to pay them duty tax etc?

    1. Thanks Rati!! I can heave a sigh of relief now. Time for shopping. :yahoo: Now I have to only overcome the minor hurdle of explaining to hubby exactly why I must buy items of such sensitive and personal nature from across the continent. :waiting:

      1. :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: i know men really need some good explanation on all this stuff. 😛 why dnt you try mom and i ? guess they make stuff for mommies.

  1. I agree with Rati. Unless the cost is above a certain threshold you wont have to worry about customs. My sis has bought stuff from ASOS and shipped it to India and there was no problem. 😉

  3. I can experiment with ordering the fabric online, But, clothes :nababana: , I prefer to try them before putting my money. I will have to search for a someone to gift it if they do not fit on me or tuesday bazaar 🙂
