“Ordering online is such a hassle - not worth the effort”

Written on: 12/06/2014 by Maranda-Walsh (1 review written)

To place and order online and pay for it is an nightmare. You cannot pay for your first order of place an order without filling out a questionnaire and then submitting it somewhere for approval to get a customer number. You then take this number and order. I only wanted to buy a dress pay with my credit card and go but not going to happen on this website The response I got when I asked if I could do this was "For security reasons, it will not allow you process your first order using a laser /… Read Full Review

“Poor quality fabric”

Written on: 06/06/2014

I firstly would like to say how lovely the staff are in store however, considering you produce clothing for big girls, with chub rub, your fabric needs to be more durable. I could dress it up but why bother? It's fact. I am a size 16 and bought leggings, they bobbled up In between my thighs after one wear, you could argue I need to clearly lose the beef but it's not the point… Read Full Review

“Using Debt Collector to collect a Non-existant debt”

Written on: 04/06/2014 by 305Ogle (1 review written)

My partner is being hassled for a debt that does not exist as she has never had any dealings with this company. All contact to date from Simplybe has been by SMS text requesting call backs on telephone numbers that do not appear to relate to simplybe and would cost money to call. The general telephone number on the website goes to an automated menu system (and costs 10p per minute) - which goes round in circles and never gets to a real person. Sending anything to the general email address… Read Full Review

“Simply rip off!!”

Written on: 08/03/2014 by stephen1966 (1 review written)

We have had a few things out of simply be. We naively never read the statements. We went through them yesterday and were horrified!! We had a letter to say that we were behind by over £370 and we needed to pay asap. What happens is that because we pay monthly over a period of time its put us behind. There accounts are done four weekly. We didnt realise this and although we never miss payments we were made to feel like bad debters. Also only a small amount goes off your account when you make a… Read Full Review

“Very Good Quality, FAST Shipping!”

Written on: 30/01/2014 by FierceHummingbird (1 review written)

I think a lot of people only write about things when they are not happy with products. But many of us fail to do so when we like the items. Or it could be that Simply Be has improved upon some of the issues so many people wrote about. I was very happy with quality and cost of the 3 dresses I ordered. I am also happy at the fast shipment! I has it all within a week and am a USA customer. Now, I am returning all 3 items as they do not look right on me, but the are truly lovely garments!And YES I… Read Full Review

“Horrible Customer Service!”

Written on: 04/01/2014

Ordered 5 dresses, ended up returning 3 of them. Received a credit that was $140 less than the amount of the 3 dresses. Called customer service and they claimed that I had been given a discount initially on my total order, plus free shipping, so this was all the money I had coming to me. Upon asking specifically what discounts had been applied to which dresses, I discovered that one of the dresses that I had kept, they showed as being one of the ones returned, and the dress that I HAD… Read Full Review

“RUBBISH CUSTOMER SERVICE”

Written on: 28/12/2013 by stillwaitingforchristmas (1 review written)

Opened an account and placed an order on the 4th. December 2013. An attempt was allegedly made to deliver, it wasn't, and my order was returned to Simply Be. Advised to reorder, which I did and the same thing happened again. Th address I requested delivery to is my work place which is staffed 24 hours a day 7 days a week so there was no excuse for non delivery. I enquired with the 2 Hermes Couriers who deliver to our building and both stated that they had not received a parcel to be delivered… Read Full Review

As a new customer I was dubious, I ordered my goods on 16 Dec 2013 which was pretty late I know. I was given an expected delivery date of 23 Dec, but all my orders were delivered on 19th and 20th. Website worked well. Products were exactly as advertised. Very happy with the service so far… Read Full Review

“Customer service awful”

Written on: 09/11/2013

I have bought boots that were great and arrived promptly in a week. However dealing with their customer service dept was terrible. I placed a second order online and put in wrong item number. It would be a easy fix the boots were even equal value. However I was told that that wasn't possible. Seriously?? I had just made the order I called within a minute of messing up. They would rather ship me wrong thing and then me ship it back? That's crazy. If their system can't correct a order mistake… Read Full Review

“Never again ”

I would never by from simply be again, I only ordered two pairs of boot both of which were in stock and it took them over 3 weeks to arrive. It states clearly 3-5 working days and when I emailed the enquiry line they said it was in the dispatch area were my order stayed for 2 weeks. Shoes were ok but nothing special.

“Hidden "returns" fee”

Written on: 17/10/2013 by dogsrunningamuck (1 review written)

I order the majority of my clothes on-line. Partially, because I hate spending the time going to stores to shop and also, because I'm often looking for clothes that will be good for work, but have a little bit of an edge. Because I didn't know how the clothes from Simply Be would fit, I ordered cautiously, and even took the time to measure myself. The clothes aren't what I'd consider high quality, but are fine for the cost. With my budget, I usually look for mid-range purchases anyway. I had… Read Full Review

“call centre problem of noise”

Written on: 19/09/2013 by holtlouise (1 review written)

I am increasingly frustrated by the back ground noise when ringing in an order, making it impossible for me to be heard and the person taking the order to hear me! Today it was worse than ever, sounding like the operator was working in a turkey shed with all the birds gobbling at once ! I terminated the call after having to repeat myself numerous times because the operator was unable to hear me clearly. She did her best but I did not place my order… Read Full Review
