  • From other 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.

*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 and briefs) 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.

Discounted Items

If you have purchased items using mix & match discount, the final amount of the item (the discounted) amount will be refunded and not the original selling price.

This right may be exercised at any point from the time of ordering up to and including the 14th working day after delivery.

To cancel this contract, you need to let us know (you can email us). Please state the order number and give your clear instructions to cancel the order.
