Bought a coat and 2 cotton bras online in December and will not do it again. Bras have a 'lip roll' from not enough outer fabric to cover the main material and this shows in tighter clothing. I thought it might just need to adjust to my body shape, but this only got worse after washing. Lesson learned, do not buy their cotton bras without trying them on in the store. Second, I also took extra OT at work to get a new puffer jacket from them that was navy blue with blue stars. Looks gorgeous, it's now March and there's a defective tooth in the zipper in the boob area. I looked online and there is literally no return policy for defective merchandise. I like the coat so I'll pay to replace the zipper, but this is going to cost me another 40-80 dollars. Ridiculous. DO NOT BUY FROM THEIR ONLINE STORE UNLESS YOU'RE GETTING JEANS OR PANTIES.
I purchased a puffer jacket from Lane Bryant which I received last Friday (2/15). On Tuesday, February 19, I received an email offer entitled, "Price Drop. Mic Drop" which offered the very same jacket I just purchased for $124.00 for $70.00—a significant price reduction of $54! I called to ask if LB would honor a price adjustment. The online customer service person told me that they could not reveal their price adjustment policy and that it is an "internal policy." I was told that they will not make a price adjustment on a purchase if a coupon had been used—which is why I purchased the jacket in the first place. SO, now, instead of adjusting the price on my jacket, I will have to return the jacket and repurchase the jacket. This is ridiculous and infuriating on several levels.
BAD BUSINESS PRACTICE to sell a jacket one week and then send me an email the following week promoting the slashed price. BAD BUSINESS PRACTICE to tell a long-time customer that you can't share the adjustment policy. BAD BUSINESS PRACTICE to make a customer return and repurchase the same item. THIS IS INFURIATING, POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE, and RIDICULOUS!
Jeans were purchased over 3 yrs ago and they still bleed. I only wear them with things they can't change to a dingy blue. I have ruined shoes, shirts, even a coat! Be careful when washing. Other than that all was fantastic.
I visited the store in Evergreen Park, IL last week thinking I’d get the BOGO free Cacique sale. No that sale is over (I just heard an ad for it on Pandora a few minutes ago btw) now it’s $25 clearance bras and $35 doorbuster. I was fitted and left. The next day I come back and there was a sign out front that said B2G2 free of $25 bras! I chose 8 bras and was told oh no they are $25 apiece...but here’s a sign outside that says...no they are $25 apiece. Not 5 minutes later I hear the sign being taken down! Prior to being told the sale didn’t exist, I, and another customer (who’d also seen the sign outside), heard a lady buy 8 and get them for $100! Other women were asking about sales and non sales as well because their advertising is misleading and deceptive. I bought 4 bras instead but in my head I knew I’d be contacting corporate.
The Same day I emailed them. I explained everything above AND sent a pic of the space where they’d taken Down the sign. A couple of days later I received a form letter response that had nothing to do with my complaint. Unhappy, I wrote back and I was told by Michael ** the store management would be notified. I still haven’t heard anything; therefore, I’ll be needing a refund of my $136.14.
I've been coming to Lane Bryant for a few years now. We were told that we would get a $25 credit when we sign up for the credit card, so we did. We came back two days later to get some bras for me since I'm pregnant and my breasts are growing. We came back to exchange them because they were smaller than I wore and I don't even think we got a receipt for when we got the bras. The representative named Lisa had to be told the phone number for the account four times and apparently still got it wrong because the transaction isn't coming up under our card or phone number. And apparently our purchases were coming up under my mother's account even though I have been living out of the home for three years. We still couldn't find the bra transaction. I want to find out what my balance is but I have to wait to find out until my plastic gets here because apparently they can't find the account under the social it was opened under.

I placed an order from Lane Bryant. The confirmation email stated they would not bill my credit card until my item was shipped. My card was charged immediately after my order was confirmed. I had to contact them and question it. They reversed the charge and apologized. I received my order and item was too big. I contacted them to return it. I expect some expense to return an item, but only 1/3 of my cost if being refunded. Basically what they are charging me to return it, was the cost of the original item. Unacceptable! I would not ever order internationally from them again.
Wanted to return Bras washed on gentle cycle after 1 wash. They denied return as washing instruction req. hand washing. Needed pictures showing denting (which their mgr. said she didn’t know what that was) and rolling of edges. They were totally not willing to concede to inferior products.
I placed an order online for 3 shirts, after I hit the place order button my credit card was charged but I was not receiving an order number or email. So I called their customer service number where I was told no order existed. After several attempts to figure out what was going on with customer service rep Ayanna I finally asked to speak to a manager. After waiting on hold for several mins she comes back and "magically" found my order... Hmmm... but then was told they sold out of my entire order. So this did not sound right to me, after her trying to explain to me how online ordering and credit cards work (now keep in mind I am a 36yr woman) I again asked to speak to a manager to resolve this order, she finally puts her supervisor on the phone.
Thomas who in short told me I'm ** out of luck. that my money would return in 5-7 business days. And that I should call my bank and dispute the charge, So let me get this straight - your website lets me place an order, charges me but I have no items and there's nothing you will do about it. So from the moment I placed my order (which secures my items) to the moment they "magically" find my order they are out of stock ALL 3. How is this possible? This has to be the worst company I have ever tried to purchase from. This was my first time and clearly my last.
I'm just so dumbfounded on how the items I just paid for are out of stock yet while I was on the phone with Ayanna and Thomas all 3 of my items were still available according to their website. I will be calling Tuesday morning to Thomas's manager Adena and put in several complaints and if she is just as rude as the other two I will just continue to climb the corporate ladder until someone at this company redeems themselves and fixes this massive problem so no other women has to be robbed by Lane Bryant like I just was.
I live in Australia and purchased a garment from Lane Bryant (USA) online. Unfortunately it is not the right fit. I tried to fulfill their refund details online but this did not work so I contacted them via customer email. I was told that my refund could be handled but cost of refund mailing was expensive, in fact more than one third of the items cost. $51 Aus. I asked if I could post back at my own cost through Australia Post and was told this was not acceptable. This is very unsatisfactory. To buy online you expect some costs but maybe taxes etc, but is ridiculous. I could post this item back to Lane Bryant for $12 Aus. Surely for overseas customers there should be another avenue to return purchases.
A payment on my Lane Bryant account came back for insufficient funds, which was incorrect. It was due on the 6th and I assumed it went through. I called on the 14th and gave them a different card and was told that it was up to date. Since the 14th I have had over 40 calls from Comenity which is the collection department for Lane Bryant. I have spoken to 9 supervisors and been assured that my account was up to date and they have assured me that my account is in good standing and they would take care of it.
As of this morning I have already received 2 phone calls and it's not even 10 am yet. There is a major breakdown in communication within Lane Bryant. They have not reported this to my credit for an account that is up to date. Their solution is that I need to write the credit bureau and show proof of payment. Their website is a joke, you cannot make payments through it and I have spent countless hours trying to fix an issue that was fixed over 2 weeks ago. I will never shop with them again, and I have been a loyal customer for over 10 years. Do not apply for a credit card unless you love to deal with rude people on the phone.
I have a card with Lane Bryant that is now canceled because 2 months ago I paid the card off using their online payment system. Well they slapped me with a late fee because they added $2 finance charge after I set the payment up. Then they hit me with a late fee for the $2. I called Lane Bryant and discussed with a young man in their customer service and he said that they would waive those fees and I would be paid off. Well guess what people? I got my bill today and instead of owing $0 like I should have they have not only left the first $11.92 on there but they have slapped $4 more in finance charges as well as another $13.92 in late fees!!! So I ask you would you continue to do business with these CROOKS!!! I'm done. They can keep their gaudy clothes and clothes that are designed for thin people but made big enough for me! They really need to do their jobs if they want to keep customers!
When you look at the images you can clearly see that there is a shrinking crotch size in these expensive plus size panties by Cacique from Lane Bryant, in that they can no longer accommodate a panty liner let alone a feminine pad of any kind.
I got home today, the package the items were shipped in was completely open, my jeans were sticking out of the top of the bag. My concern is my invoice and personal information were also exposed and have no idea as to why and a first to receive a package already opened and appeared as if it has been gone through.
I should not even give them 1 star. This store does not honor their sales. I was on the phone being transferred by several sales representative that kept scripting that this is under a different grouping..."I see the ad but I am unable to adjust this for you..." Was transferred to Omar who kept talking over me and got me mad enough after being on the phone given the same scripting and nobody listening until my BP was 136/95 and I told him he doesn't care about his customers and to ** off and he said, "Yeah you too!"
I had had it. This is not how I would ever want to treat my customers. EVER. Make up your own SITEWIDE definition but who cares how the customer takes it. I will NEVER shop somewhere where they don't take care of their customers and never believe their sale ads. This isn't the first time this month they ran a sale that the same item didn't work for their sale. I couldn't get B2G2 FREE either. They are a rip off.
This was the message I sent to customer service. "I connected to chat about returning a defective bra which is scratching my back because there is not enough material to cover the hooks. I even sent pics. I purchased the same bra in black and it is fine. I just wanted another bra in black since it fits good (after return of the beige one). Apparently, she couldn't see anything wrong and said I would have to go to a store. A store is 26 miles away. I don't go that way for any other reason and it would be a huge inconvenience... Your bras in general are great, but I will be leaving the fact that your customer service is not so great in my review..."
I tried to leave a review on their website, but they rejected it (of course). Instead of correcting the problem, this was the return message. "Quality is of the utmost importance to us and I apologize that your item is not wearing as we intended. Please be assured that I will pass this information along to our quality department to look into further to make sure there aren't any problems with the item. We appreciate you contacting us and providing the feedback as this information will be used to ensure our quality is up to our standards. Please enjoy 25% off your next purchase as a token of our appreciation." In other words, you're not happy, so come spend more money. No thanks!!!!
I bought bras online and they were too big. I was leaving for a trip to Israel in a couple days and needed to exchange for a smaller one. Manager at Meadows Mall in Las Vegas treated me like I stole the bras. Wouldn't exchange. I even had the barcode on the bag it was sent in and all the tags attached. She was so RUDE to me I will never shop there ever. She should be fired!!! What a horrible experience and customer service. It's not like these bras were cheap either. Or I would have thrown them in her face. So I end up buying 2 more for 86.00. Only because I needed it for my trip.
I have an impeccable credit card payment with Lane Bryant. However, I closed my account over 2 years ago due to horrible phone customer service. In making my last 2 payments, I reviewed the account this evening and it states I missed 2 or returned payment fees. Thus, bringing a 25% increase to the remaining balance. I then looked at my checking account, there were available funds. I've printed the statements from my bank ledgers as proofs. At this point, in reading the comments I will began the search for a law firm. How ruthless and conniving can a company be and it makes perfect sense why they're going under. They've become a ruthless, conniving set of very low standards and caliber in doing business.
My wife and we're swimsuit shopping. We had a very nice sales girl helping and my wife found a suit. So far all is going well. My wife wrote a check for $48.00 and this is where the trouble began... Whoever is the contractor/vendor that processes check verification is totally inept. The clerk was forced to redo the information 4 or 5 times and after 20 minutes or so of monkey business we finally were cleared to finish the transaction. BUT, it was today that really showed Lane Bryant to be run by morons. After a transfer from customer service to a "supervisor" to complain about the way this vendor handled check approval... This supervisor told my wife tough chit, they didn't care how we were treated, it was not their problem. I understand that large sizes can pose problems in selections sometimes, but dismissing the checkout process as not their problem... I'll be bad mouthing these morons to anyone that will listen.
All of your dress pants have elastic waist which cut into my stomach. Not even your Associates like them. The only pair that did not have elastic waist wear bell bottoms which are not in style. Bring back trousers with a button. I received the new email and went into the store specifically looking for one sweater and the store did not carry it. You do not have black jeans. And what is with all the skinny jeans and no straight legs. The store sold out of the Spanx tops months ago and have never gotten any back and I keep checking. The ladies in the store were wonderful today.
After not receiving my order, numerous phone calls between LB and UPS, I will not be receiving my package in time for the trip I'm taking next week due to LB database error. They continue to ship to my old address, even though I have done all I can on my end and have representatives verify that my current information is in the database. Both companies blame each other. Even though LB accepts that they shipped to wrong address, no apology or offer to make this right. I have spend at least 2 hours on the phone trying to locate this package.
I recently tried to make a payment with this company Lane Bryant. I was 1 hour after cutoff online to pay my bill. It was still 9/28/17. However when I tried to pay it kept giving me the next day's date. I paid at that time. I called Lane Bryant on 9/29/17 the very next morning. I was told there would be no late fee as they could tell I tried paying it on the 28th. Lo and behold I get my new bill. It has now been assessed a $25 late fee!!! I was livid. To make long story short I then called their company and spoke with someone who and I quote says, "We waived a late fee for you 2016 and we cannot waive the fee at this time." Mind you my balance at this point was 39 dollars!!! I say, "Ma'am are we not in 2017 almost in to 2018. Why am I being penalized for Nov 2016???"
I then ask to speak with supv. At this point she quoted the same thing then she says let her see if she can go outside the box. Well she came back with, "We can take off $15!!!???" I was livid because if you can do 15 you can waive entire late fee. I said all that to say this these damn dept. stores can do anything they want and how they want. I will never use a charge or purchase anything else from their company!!! If you don't have cash for these company I will not allow them to charge unnecessary fees after being a customer in good standing. This company is full of idiots!! Well that will motivate me to lose weight. That's for sure.
My daughter and I went to the local Lane Bryant to purchase bras. She needed a good sports bra, I just needed everyday bras. The clerk sets us up in fitting rooms and never comes back, she sees us going back and forth, though. My daughter got so tired of getting dressed to go back out for a different size and style she just gave up. I purchased three bras - 2 were on clearance, the sign above said "buy one, get one 50% off". Nope (I would not have purchased the second sale one). I e-mailed their customer service about it and never heard a word back.
I did return the full-priced bra, along with everything else I hadn't already worn. So now I'm wearing those bras (same style, different colors) and I'm getting REALLY tired of having them come completely unhooked. It's seriously embarrassing and annoying to come out of a work meeting only to discover you are completely unhooked and "loose". A few minutes ago I had to sit at my desk and try to hook myself back up because I can't go flapping out into the hallway to the restroom.
And my activity today that caused it to come unhooked? Sitting at my desk typing a report. They come unhooked when I walk, when I try to put on a coat or sweater, when I sit at my desk. And they've already stretched out so much they're on the inside set of hooks. The WHOLE POINT of going to Lane Bryant was to get a quality bra that fit well. The shoulder strap adjustment slider things sitting right on my collar bones which is painful.
So, save yourself the money and aggravation - I'll go back to buying inexpensive bras at Target or Macy's. At least those last longer than 3 weeks. Oh, and the entire time the clerk was getting ready to ring the sale, she kept pushing me to open a credit card. NO. NO. NO. Stop asking. Maybe ask if we had a good experience. Maybe don't tell me AFTER the sale is rung up that I can't return the sale bras. Really bad experience and it'll keep me out of their stores from here forward. Too much aggravation.
GREAT ITEM - Comfortable Smart Black Yoga Pants ~ Signature Stretch Active Yoga Capri ~ $34.95. OMG These are my fav pants to wear to work. I just ordered some in the sale today and got $75 OFF an order than was originally $300. LANE BRYANT COUPON CODE: "SEPT GIFT". I used this code today! It was good for $25.00 OFF a smaller order it came out to be $75.00 OFF when I had everything in the cart that I needed. Yah! Happy me!! Enjoy. I think that the code is good through Sept. Try it...
This is a horrible company with bad customer service! First experience I bought an item with the Lane Bryant Credit Card and paid off the credit card. I wasn't satisfied with the item so I asked for a refund. They said NO! They could only give me store credit, I was forced to get something I couldn't use! I was out $14 small amount I took it as a loss! During that same time I had purchased a bathing suit online 7/9. I needed it by a certain date, the delivery date from the tracking number said delivery date 7/17 . On 7/18 I received a email saying my package was at the West Covina store and if not picked up by 8/1 it will be returned. I didn't pick up the item since I didn't need it after all. The store failed to return it back!!! I reached out to Lane Bryant via chat on 8/15 about a refund, that's when they informed me the item was at the store! He said he will ask the store to return the item and process my refund. It will take 7-10 business days.
I contacted them again 8/22, another agent said the item wasn't shipped back to the warehouse until 8/18 three days later from my initial request! He said the refund will not be processed until the item is delivered on 8/24. It will take 7-10 business days from the time it is delivered!!! He said he couldn't expedite anything. I have to wait until 9/1 for a refund! I asked to have a manager call me, he gave me an 800 number to call!!! HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE! I WILL NOT SHOP THERE ANYMORE and TOLD my FRIENDS and FAMILY NOT TO EITHER!
Though I paid my bill off. Kept getting little charges every month. Last one was two dollars. I guess they were charging me just to have the account. I closed my account and they turned me into credit bureau. I don't care as long as I'm rid of their tricky ways of getting my money. It won't hurt our credit believe me. I just hope no one else falls for this trick. I didn't even get a bill for two months and had a charge then for late payment. Just don't get into credit cards.
I tried to apply a coupon (a valid one) and the coupon code box would not accept it. I placed a help request, explained in the help email through the site, and placed the order. I also sent a separate email through CONTACT US explaining the problem I had applying the coupon. The next email was from LB confirming the order without the coupon. I emailed back saying "cancel it if you cannot apply the coupon." LB emailed back saying they ship immediately and could not cancel it and to order more stuff to try the coupon again. I was a loyal customer at their store for 20+ years. This was a first try at their website ordering. I will never shop LB again. Horrible customer service! So much for trying to resolve this with customer service. No wonder they are losing customers! Nothing they can do? Really? Well, there is something I can do... Goodbye LB!
I purchased a bra within that last few months from Lane Bryant and the metal wire started to come through the side. I never had this happen to me in the past as I was always happy with Lane Bryant's bras. I brought the bra into the store to see if they could replace it and they could not as I did not have my receipt. I asked if she could look me up in the system and the store manager said she could not find anything. I said, "Well I know I purchased it in April", and she replied that they don't keep the information for that long. I said, "So does this mean I am out of luck?" She replied, "Yes". I then said I wanted the number to the corporate office and she said it was on the back of my Lane Bryant card.
I called the main office and the game of He Said, She Said began. At the end of the day, the main office could not help me because I did not buy it online and it was up to the store to help me. I will never buy a Lane Bryant product again. I have been a faithful customer for over 10 years and I was treated like I did something wrong. Paying over $40 for a bra that only lasts two months is absurd.
I'm very disappointed with Lane Bryant. I have been a customer for over 30 years but let's just say I will be paying off my account and never do business again with them. I received a reward check in the mail that had to be used by end of February. I forgot about it and called to ask If it could be reissued... they said not a problem. It would take about 60 days. As of today I never received anything. I called today (6-8-17) and was transferred to 3 different departments. Finally the last person told me that there is nothing they could do but that I could try and call where my bill comes from and maybe they could help. Really? They want me to call. I have had this problem before and it hasn't been a problem until now. I'm so disappointed in the run around I got today from Lane Bryant. Thank you for your time in this matter.
Unbelievably horrible website design. Spent way too much time trying to place an order this morning. EVERY time I got to the cart and hit place order it would NOT place the order and would instead remove random items from my cart. I was able to go back and get those items into my cart and repeat the process, and then it would remove other random items. Forget it. Never ordering from then again... and will continue to shout it from mountain tops that Lane Bryant has the worst website ever... Totally not worth it!
I have only bought Lane Bryant bras for the past twenty years. This will all change, because I will never purchase such poor quality again. Two months after (actually started after 6 weeks) buying my last bra, the underwire has already poked through, and the bra is ripping apart from middle seal between the two cups. These bras are $40-50 a piece!!! The quality as if I bought it from Walmart. NEVER AGAIN LANE BRYANT!
