PSA/Rant about order things online

I just got a bill for $50 from DHL for customs fees from a Figleaves order that I sent 75% of back. I'm so pissed. Apparently you should never order anything over $200 to be shipped to the US because of freaking 16% customs fees. And theoretically I could get a refund, but it looks like I'd have to file lots of forms and wait a long time and fight bureaucracy and I might just eat the $50. The two things I ended up keeping were very cheap for well made bathing suits, so maybe I'll just pretend they were kind of expensive bathing suits to make myself feel better. But first I'm going to continue raging for a while. Other people's rage/consolation/experience is welcome.
