Returns/Refunds/Cancellation policy – Updated March 2023
**COVID PANDEMIC UPDATE**
*Due to the Covid pandemic we are unable to guarantee delivery periods as stated on our shipping policy. We will not refund postage due to late delivery by Royal Mail or local postal service. If you are unhappy with the length of time your parcel has taken to arrive then you need to discuss this with Royal Mail or your local postal service if outside of UK. We dispatch all our parcels on day of ordering (if ordered before 3pm) and the next available working day (mon-fri) with exemption of bank holidays.
**We are not accepting returns on underwear that has been tried on or clothing that has been worn. Please ensure you purchase the correct size/style/design and speak with customer services if you need any help or advice before purchasing.
If you’re not completely happy with an item, just return it to us in the same new condition (including packaging) you received it in, for an exchange or refund* within our returns period(s) shown below.
If you are not satisfied with your goods, for whatever reason, a full refund (of the price paid, excluding postage) will be given on their return for up to 30 days after purchase, as long as they are returned in their original, fully resalable condition, and in their original, undamaged packaging. Extra care must be taken when trying on clothing (please note *underwear exception* below), please ensure you are not wearing any make-up, fragrance or deodorant that may leave a scent or mark. We reserve the right to refuse a refund if goods are not returned in a saleable condition or are damaged.
We cannot accept a return once an item of underwear has been tried on. Please check our size charts so that you can be sure you’re ordering underwear that will fit correctly: measure your hips and waist then apply this information to the chart. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch before placing your order if you have any sizing queries, just send us a quick e-mail or give our friendly team a call – our contact details are below.
*All exchange/alternative items are not returnable, exchangeable or refundable
Returns are usually handled within 24 hours and items exchanged or refunded within 48 hours. All exchange items will be sent out 2nd class post or standard service if overseas.
You will receive an automated email once your return has been processed.
- If you return everything, we will deduct a return fee of £4.99 (per item) from your refund except in cases where the entire order was cancelled within 7 days under the UK Distance Selling Regulations or the entire order was faulty.
- From overseas countries, you will need to pay return postage, but there’s no additional return fee. Any customs/duty will have to be paid by you. Please ensure that you put on the return slip the word RETURNS so that HMRC (customs and excise) know that your are returning goods.
When trying on items please avoid make up or lotions coming into contact with them. Please also make sure that bottoms are tried on over your own underwear. In the interests of hygiene*, we may refuse returns where it is obvious this hasn’t been done. UNDERWEAR is NON RETURNABLE when it has been tried on.
*The refunded amount is the price paid for the item(s) you are returning net of any postage costs (postage costs are not refunded). For reasons of health and hygiene, all items from our underwear range (includes Knickerboxers, boxer shorts, briefs, socks, sweat liners and leggings) are non refundable unless they are defective or damaged once worn. This does not affect your statutory rights. You may return any items which haven’t been opened and which are in their original packaging for a full refund (subject to import taxes and postage charges mentioned above) Please contact customer support if you have any questions.
If you have purchased items using mix & match discount or promotions if you have purchased products as part of an offer or discount, the amount refunded will be adjusted accordingly to reflect any failure to meet the original requirements for the offer or discount as a result of returning the product. i.e. if you buy 2 pairs of underwear for £30 (full price is £18 a pair) and return 1 pair you will be charge the original full price of the remaining item. In the scenario your refund would be £12.
A full refund (including postage) will be offered, without time-limit, for faulty (due to manufacture but not design) items, subject to the items not having been subjected to excessive force or other operation beyond their design and/or manufacturing capability. This is does not affect your statutory right
Payment of Refunds
Refunds are paid back to the DR/CR card or account from which payment was received. You will receive an email advising the amount of the refund once it has been processed. If you have paid using your paypal balance then the refund will usually show within 3 working hours. If you have paid via a DR/CR card then please allow 3-5 working days for the payment to show on your account. Payments can not be made to an alternative account, name or card other than that of the original order. If you have used a gift voucher to pay for the order, then your refund will be in the form of a gift voucher which can be used on the website at a further date.
