RETURNS + SHIPPING + CARE

Please note all sale purchases are final and cannot be returned or exchanged. This does not include our signup offers. 

CAN I MAKE A RETURN?

Under Strict Australian Consumer Law, swimwear and lingerie are not to be refunded or exchanged

HOWEVER

We also know there's nothing worse than getting the wrong bikini size (because well, you'll never wear them) Please try your bikinis on as soon as you get them (while wearing clean underwear), don't remove any stickers or tags, and in the event they do not fit - please get in touch with us at lovemail@baiia.com.au within 7 days of receiving your goods and we'll organise an exchange, as long as the sanitary sticker and tags are still intact. We unfortunately cannot offer a refund due to wrong sizing. We are not responsible for return postage fees and redispatchment fees.

Please note that our hip bands are made to feel quite snug at first, but will eventually soften and stretch to your hip width.

Please make sure you use our sizing charts to find your perfect fit and decide on colours you know you’ll love!

We are happy to offer exchanges on change of mind (given all sanitary stickers and swing tags are still attached) however we cannot cover the cost of return postage and cost of redispatchment.

We overlook ALL of our swimwear before dispatching them to ensure their quality, but in the unlikely event that your item arrives faulty please get in touch with us at lovemail@baiia.com.au with the subject 'FAULTY' along with images of the faulty goods within 3 days of delivery. The item must then be returned to us within 3 days after the fault has been reported (unless international) so we can inspect the damage. If found to be faulty, we can issue you a full exchange or refund (including product value and regular postage). Failure to do the above will result in an inability to provide a refund or exchange.

If a faulty item has been worn (both intentionally or accidentally) after finding the fault, we may not be able to provide a refund or exchange. Being 'worn' also includes the sanitary sticker or swing tags being removed.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY BAIIA’S?

While all our eco kinis were tested for months to ensure quality and high performance, the longevity of your swimwear will ultimately come down to how they are cared for. To ensure your BAIIA’S remain high quality, fresh and fabulous, please follow the below steps.

  • Hand wash in cold soapy water (never in warm or hot water)
  • Rinse in cold water (never in warm or hot water)
  • Do not leave in the sun or hand iron (this may cause material fading and damage)
  • Lay flat out to dry (out of direct sunlight)
  • To avoid fabric from drying out, make sure all sand is properly removed from the swimwear
  • To avoid moisture building in garments, keep in a dry place where frequent air flow and ventilation.
