    As we have very limited quantities we are not able to offer direct exchanges and instead encourage you to place a new order for your desired item and return the original item for refund or credit note. If you are re-purchasing the same style and used a discount code on your original order, we would be happy to price match it. Please email to request a re-use of the discount code.



      We pride ourselves on maintaining high standards in quality & all our garments are thoroughly checked prior to dispatched. In the unlikely event of a manufacturing fault, we will gladly repair the item & if the fault is irreparable, we will replace or refund if a replacement is unavailable, at no cost to you.

      Should you receive an incorrect or faulty product, please contact us immediately using our online contact form.



      First, if you need to consider refunds & returns you likely purchased a product from us. Which means we owe you a thank you. Nothing makes us happier than creating a community of happy OnceWas customers.

      That said, when purchasing in person from our styling studio head office, please carefully consider your items before buying as change-of-mind returns are not accepted for in-store purchases. We promise to do our very best to help you find an amazing product that you will love and wear for years to come.
