Your account

You can still access your old order information, but you’ll have to re-log in to the UK site to see them.


Delivery from our Singapore site

All orders to Singapore will now be processed through the relevant site – orders from our UK site will no longer offer delivery to this country.


Making a return

If you’re not totally happy with your pieces, simply log in to your account on the site you placed the order on, and click Request a Return. Remember, if you placed your order on the UK site before our Singaporean site launched, you’ll need to log back in to your account on the UK site to process a return.

Payment options


We accept Visa, Maestro and MasterCard.

If you have paid on your credit card or debit card, you will only be charged once the goods have been shipped to the shipping address provided by you. We will email you to confirm shipment.

All prices are inclusive of VAT (where applicable) at the rate appropriate to the country of receipt, where within the EU, and are correct at the time of entering the information on to the system. If for some reason we are unable to ship your goods, the value of the items that are not shipped will be refunded to the original method of payment.

All prices are exclusive of delivery charges. The total cost of the order is the price of the products ordered plus the delivery charge.

Credit card validation

All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to, or does not for any reason, authorise payment then you will be notified of this immediately at the check-out stage.

In assessing your request for goods or services, we may use your information for the purposes of the prevention and detection of fraud. One of the purposes for which we may disclose your address and postcode details is to check against the IMRG Security Alert or any other Fraud Prevention Scheme. At all times where we disclose your information it will remain secure. If you believe your details are incorrect you may correct those details by following the procedure set out in our privacy policy.

Verified by Visa and Mastercard

Online shopping made safer.

Dorothy Perkins is working together with Visa and MasterCard to offer you a safer shopping experience when using your credit card online.

Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode follow the same principles as Chip and Pin, by helping to protect your card against unauthorised use when you shop via the Internet.

If your bank or card issuer is already a part of this scheme, then you might have already noticed the Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode page appear when you made a purchase with a participating retailer on the Internet.

If your bank is yet to introduce this security measure, then the following information will explain how it works and the added protection benefits of registering.

Online Protection Benefits:

  • Shop online with added security and peace of mind.
  • Your personal password is linked to your card only and not to your computer.
  • This security scheme will help to prevent unauthorised purchases.

How it works: When you reach the checkout process at (or any participating retailer) you will have the opportunity to register for either Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode. Simply sign-up for the service following the online instructions that are linked directly to your card issuer, set up your new personal password once your card issuer has confirmed your identity, and continue shopping.

This is a one-off registration process, so you will be able to use the same password for afll future purchases you make with participating retailers.

Alternatively you can contact your bank directly to register, or visit Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode for more information.

Please note: If you choose not to register during the checkout process, depending on your card issuer, we may not be able to process your order. A different method of payment will be required to complete your purchase.

Returning Goods which are of Unsatisfactory Quality or Unfit for Purpose

About us 

Established over 90 years ago, Dorothy Perkins is now one of the biggest fashion retailers in the United Kingdom (UK), with nearly 600 UK stores and over 50 international outlets.

Dorothy Perkins' ranges are updated weekly in store and daily online. The brand offers UK sizes 06 to 22, and a wide range of collections including Tall, Petite, Maternity, Lingerie, Shoes and Accessories.

Dorothy Perkins provides affordable, feminine fashion and a shopping experience customers clearly love - a jersey top is sold every two seconds and the stores have won numerous awards for its collections.

Charities we support

For the past three years Dorothy Perkins has supported Breast Cancer Care, during which it's raised over £2 million for people affected by breast cancer. In 2007 Dorothy Perkins formed a partnership with the Woodland Trust, and since then has raised enough to plant over 100,000 trees in the UK.

Customer profile

With an age range of 25 - 40 years, Dorothy Perkins has the widest customer base of all our brands. The average Dorothy Perkins customer is in her early thirties and she's likely to be a busy mum or working woman.

She loves fashion and takes a close interest in the new trends, but often doesn't feel able to carry off some of the latest looks. She's not always confident about her body, and doesn't always know what suits her, so Dorothy Perkins gives her fashion inspiration and advice. Quality, fit and price are all important to her.

Our history

Here at Dorothy Perkins we're proud of our great British heritage. As the country's developed over the last 100 years, so have are a few of our favourite milestones:


Dorothy Perkins begins life as Ladies Hosiery and Underwear Limited.
At the tail end of the Edwardian era, fashion is very segmented. Society ladies favour the glamorous 'Belle Epoque' look with it's S shape silhouette, corsets and voluptuous long skirts. The middle classes wear long skirts and high collared blouses with pins or ties, and the less well off wear shawls and simple, homemade clothes.
