A message to my wonderful customers - I will be taking a little bit of time for myself as my baby girl will arrive in early December. We will continue to trade as usual, however I’ll have a little less access to my phone, while I’ll answer all the emails, please be a little patient as it may take a few days, thanks!

We will dispatch orders and process returns every second day i.e. Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays. 

So please if you have urgency (especially with the Christmas period coming) choose the Express post service.

I can’t wait for this new chapter in my life and I thank you beforehand for understanding that Contessa Volpi is a small business operated lovingly by me (with the help of my family) and I’ll try my best to manage it all. Love Enrica x


Contessa Volpi wants you to fall in love with your new bathing suit! But if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you can return it  for a store credit, full refund or exchange (depending on the type of purchase) - the choice is yours as we are dedicated to customer service and satisfaction. 

These are the options: 

  • for full priced items we offer either a store credit, full refund or exchange; 
  • for sale items a store credit or exchange.

We are more than happy to exchange for another size, style or color provided the item returned has been assessed by our quality control team. Underwear must be worn when trying on swimwear for hygiene reasons.
