Just need a different size? We try to make exchanges easy.

  • Need it Fast? Best thing to do is purchase the size you want on a new order, and return what you have for a refund. Make a note on your return that you ordered a different item on a new order, and we will refund any shipping that you paid for on the new order.
  • Not in a Hurry? If you aren't in a hurry, return your item with a note telling us what you need. You will not be charged for the exchange, so long as the item being returned, and the item being requested are the same price. You will also not be charged for shipping on the exchange.

Please note that some items cannot be returned for exchange, as noted in the "Refunds" section below.
