Plus Size Swimwear in Australia

Return Policy

SwimwearPlus.com.au complies with the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) and its consumer guarantees.  

In fact, we go above and beyond what is legally required.

For example, under the ACL there is no provision for the return of a product if you have simply made the wrong choice (e.g. style, size or colour).  Many large, national retailers (both off and online) don’t allow return of swimwear or other intimate apparel.

However, we understand there can be occasions when you may wish to return an item and, subject to the conditions of our policy, we’ll do our best to assist.


- IMPORTANT: Please do not post an item back to us before following the relevant procedure, listed below.

- Returns received without a Return Authority number on the packaging will be automatically redirected back to the sender.

- Please read our return policy (below) before submitting a completed Return Request form.

- One item per Return Request (should you wish to return multiple items, please submit multiple requests).

- Approved return requests will be issued with Return Authority number, instructions and post-to address.

- There are many reasons we use the Return Request system, one being that if we know in advance what you'd like to exchange for, we can ensure it is reserved for you in our stock management system.

Getting It Right

We’d like to assist you in making the right choice before you buy. 

If you have any pre-sale questions, please use the 'Ask Question' button (located every product page) or via our Contact page.

Product pages contain size charts – and our Sizing page has helpful information for taking your measurements to gauge your size.

You are also invited to send us your measurements for expert advice, via our Virtual Fitting page.

Sale on Approval?  Ummm… No.

SwimwearPlus.com.au operates as a retailer, not a try-on service.

We do not offer “sale on approval” (i.e. purchasing a number of items to decide which, if any, will be kept).

To continue providing excellent quality at affordable prices, we cannot justify the time or cost involved with “selling” intimate apparel “on appro”.  

We will flatly refuse any request for return that we consider falls into this category.

When Your Order Arrives

For health and hygiene reasons, please try on items over your underwear – as you would in a shop.  

Please leave the hygiene liner and tags intact... and avoid forcing or straining the garment.

In instances where it is clear that these guidelines have not been followed, we will decline the return and redirect it back to the sender.

Consumer Guarantee Returns

Manufacturing Faults

If you believe an item has a manufacturing fault, please request to return it for replacent or refund using the Return Request form.  

We’ll inspect the item on return, and if we assess it as having a manufacturing fault, we will promptly arrange your replacement or refund.

Damage as a result of mistreatment, normal wear and tear or failure to follow Swimwear Care instructions is not considered to be a manufacturing fault.


We check all orders twice before they are sent… but, we’re human too. 

If you believe we’ve sent you the wrong item, please let us know using the Return Request form.  We’ll do everything we can to make it right.

Other Return Requests (outside the scope of ACL)

Return Conditions

If you wish to return an item for a reason outside of consumer guarantees, first contact us via the Return Request form.  

Please do not return an item without following the relevant procedure, listed below.

Sorry, we won't accept returns that have been sent back to us without Return Authority.

Proposed returns must be in pristine condition with the original garment tags and the hygiene liner intact.

The item must be undamaged, unworn, unwashed, and free from odour, including tobacco smoke.

We reserve the right to decline any return that does not meet our conditions.

To keep our prices affordable for everyone, return postage is the responsibility of the buyer.

Lingerie: strictly no change of mind or size returns on lingerie (bras and/or panties).
