R2W Vs. M2O

WHAT IS (R2W) ?

(R2W) = READY 2 WEAR // OUR AMAZING PATTERNS AND FABRICS, JUST MADE IN ONE OF OUR OVERSEAS WAREHOUSES!

Some garments are handmade and restocked in Noosa Australia, but we couldn't keep up with the demand so we have added the BIG GUNS to our ever growing team!

MADE ETHICALLY LOCALLY AND OVERSEAS

All R2W garments are actioned within 12 hours & will dispatch within 5 working days.

Why R2W and not just M2O?

  • Not everyone is happy to wait! We used to do everything M2O until one Christmas where we had SOOOO many orders we almost burst. We then started making small batches for all customers that needed it fast and standard in size.  

  • We can sell them for a cheaper price! Best thing about doing small batches is that they're slightly faster to make, Win! That means we can sell them at a cheaper price and have awesome deals on all R2W items.

All (R2W) orders are actioned within 12 hours & will dispatch within 5 working days. If your item is out of stock we will contact you asap! If an (R2W) product is purchased with an (M2O) product, the longer lead time will apply... Rest assured it is well worth the wait! Nothing leaves our factory without our Exotica seal of approval.

WHAT IS (M2O) ?

(M2O) = MADE 2 ORDER

These garments are made right here in Noosa QLD! Sewn and Cut one by one, to order, just for you.

All M2O items are ready to ship within 17 working days..

Why we do this?

  • To reduce our environmental footprint! By making our items One by One, it means we use less fabric & waste less off-cuts!

  • To offer more patterns and variety! Because we don't make our M2O stock prior to sale, it means we don't have to commit to CRAZY and unique designs. This means you receive unique patterns with that designer touch for half the price. Everyone LOVES limited Edition!

If an (R2W) product is purchased with an (M2O) product, the longer lead time will apply... Rest assured it is well worth the wait!

WHAT IS (M2M) & DO I NEED IT?

(M2M) = MADE 2 MEASURE

All (M2O) products have an option to add Made 2 Measure and Custom Options

All M2O items are ready to ship within 17 working days..

 

How to ORDER (M2M)

  1. Tick the box and a drop-down menu will appear. EASY! 😍
  2. "MADE TO MEASURE" - Click "Add New Measurements" for all 1st time buyers
  3. This is a one of fee where we work with you until we get the PERFECT fit!
  4. Next time just click "Same As Last Time" and we will use your custom pattern which is sorted on your customer file

It's important to give us the right measurements so here is a Quick Guide when measuring:

Waist = Smallest part just above your belly button
Hip = Around your hip bones and not butt
Thigh = Thickest part of one directly under your butt

 

WHY SHOULD I SHOP M2M?

Made to measure is like an insurance policy! We'll keep working with you until they're 100% Perfect... Meaning if we have to remake and organise a return 2+ times until we find your perfect fit, we will 😉 PLUS once we have the perfect pattern, we keep your size on file and you can just choose "Same as Last time". It's seriously the safest and easiest way to shop 😀

 

I ONLY WEAR COUTURE

When you order made to measure all your items will have an 'I ONLY WEAR COUTURE' size tag, instead of a standard sizing. We believe all bodies are beautiful and refuse to conform to fast fashion which is only built for one shape and size.

WHAT IS (R2W) ?

(R2W) = READY 2 WEAR

All of our gear WAS handmade in Noosa Australia, but we couldn't keep up with the demand...

 

MADE ETHICALLY OVERSEAS

 

Why the change?

Since Lani and B are two very different shapes and heights, they found a lot of issues TRYING to find the PERFECT FIT...

Being the determined women, they are, they decided to give it a go at pattern making... WHAT AN AMAZING discussion the WAS!

 

All orders were MADE right here is Noosa QLD where they used their customer's measurements to build unique patterns for each order.

One year later, they became FIT EXPERTS and still to this day, prides themselves on offering something for EVERYBODY...

They realized after going through hundreds of shapes and sizes, that it wasn’t necessary to offer custom patterns for EVERY SINGLE order and finalized on their base pattern, which still stands today.

It is extremely special to think that our sizing chart is actually based on our OG fans!

 

Orders were FLOODING the local sewing team and they just couldn’t keep up…

They started looking into offshore manufacturing which in lined with the ethos of Exotica…

After 2 years of searching, they FINALLY found an AMAZING team that not only had the quality BUT, the skills and sewing techniques they needed to take Exotica to a WHOLE new level!

Half of the website was M2O (Made 2 Order) and the other, R2W (Ready 2 Wear)...

Our tribe was loving the quality and It wasn't until Christmas 2019, that they decided to make the full switch. Our M2O lead time was pushed to 40 working days and our team were extremely overwhelmed.

It was a massive decision, but we made to switch and our team LOVED IT!  

We’re now 6 years in and LOVING our AMAZING gear!
