Laredoute

Not worth it in the long term

Today I closed my account with La Redoute which I have been using for 4 years.
It made sense to use their shop at the time when I became self employed and cash flow wasn't always good , so I purchased garments that I needed for my work on their credit facility. It was also a very useful way of shopping during my pregnancy and birth of my son for things not so easy to find on the high street. However, their so-called discount / offers are applicable on very few items and I used to get very frustrated finding anything decent for a reasonable price. But the biggest let down is that I have recently found that all the garments I have bought are falling apart, some of them with 2-3 wears!
I particularly got very upset when I discovered a hole on the sleeve of a 100 % merino wool cardigan that I was very fond of. I paid full price £59 and have used just a handful of times and only washed once with the utmost care, I spotted the hole in the middle of a meeting with a client. Not good! This made up my mind on walking away from La Redoute. In other words, I recommend them only if you plan to buy as last minute resort and ONLY on already discounted items so poor quality won't be a disappointment.

Vertbaudet

not so sure but worth a try

I am expecting my first child and having used La Redoute I just found that Vertbaudet operates the same way. The send you all these offers and when you go to their online shop you can easily spend HOURS finding anything suitable that is actually applicable to the offer ( too many exceptions!!!!). This can only raise suspicions as you would eventually give up looking for the bargain and end up spending a lot more than you planned. A bit naughty. It is only worth if you're strong, have the time and patience. I have no complains about the quality from la Redoute so I thought it was worth a try. Not in a hurry for delivery so we;llsee what happens.
