    Return shipping

    If the return is caused by the consumer, consumer should be responsible for the shipping fee. The specific fee should be based on the express company you choose.
    If due to our reasons, the goods received are damaged or not correct, and the consumer is not required to bear the shipping fee for this reason.


    All item(s) must be unworn and in the original condition with the original packaging and all tags attached. Any garments that appear to have been worn, washed, or altered in any way will not qualify for a refund. The original shipping cost (if any) is non-refundable, in most cases.

    If your return does not adhere to the requirements it may be sent back at additional cost to the customer.


    You can choose to receive the refund via store credit (valid for 12 months) or your original payment method. See below for details:

    • Store credit: This is the fastest way! You will receive the store credit within 1 business days after the return package arrives at our warehouse, and you can use it on any item on our website. Please note that our store credit cannot be refunded as cash or transferred to another person.
    • Original payment method: We will initiate the refund within 2 business days after the package arrives. You will receive a receipt confirmation via email once your returned package is processed. Refund time for credit/debit card payments varies depending on your bank. Please allow up to 7 business days for it to show up in your bank account.


    Unfortunately, we don’t offer exchanges at the moment. But you can always place a new order and initiate a return. Your refund will be processed as soon as we receive the returned package.

    Q: Why don't you accept return for non product defect issue?

    AWe understand worry-free return is a crucial part of online shopping experience, and we are doing our best to work toward a more relaxed return policy. 

    To be 100% transparent, as a women-led startup brand, we don't have the funding to process returned items and resell them. Therefore, the items we receive will not likely be resold again which is not only wasteful but also unsustainable. In addition, the global pandemic increases the labor costs and uncertainties of international shipping even more.

    With that said, as we rapidly grow, we are aiming to invest in return processing warehouses to allow for worry-free returns. We really appreciate your support and patience in the meantime.

    Q: What if I'm not sure what sizes I should wear as I can't return the item if it doesn't fit?

    A: Don't worry! If you have any questions about sizing, our customer service team is here to help! Please reach out to us via social media messages, the chat box on our website, or our email ([email protected]) with the products you are interested in and your measurements. We will recommend the best size for you based on the material and design of the products.

    Tip: You can also consult the size that our model wears for that product, which can be found on all product description pages.

    Q: What counts as a product defect?

    A: At Mew Mews, we conduct thourough quality control check on every item to make sure you receive the best quality. In the unlikely event of quality issue, we are happy to provide full or partial refund based on the issue. 

    Quality issues include but not limited to: broken, skipped or missing stiches; significant defect in sizing; open seams' incorrect stiches per inch; etc.

    As all of our products are hand-made, small manual error such as loose threads may occasionally occur. If the issue doesn't affect the usability of the product, we are unable to provide full refund.

    Q: My order arrived too late. Can I return it?

    A: While we do our best to process and ship out every order, there are many uncontrollable factors in international shipping, especially during COVID-19.

    As stated in our shipping policy, we are not able to make any delivery time promise at this time. Therefore, we are also unable to provide refund for items arrived late.

    In the rare events where the process time takes too long, we will provide partial or full refund to the order on a case by case basis.

    Q: I simply don't like the product I receive. Can I return?

    A: We are sorry to hear that you are not 100% in love with your order! As much as we'd love to accept return for them, we simply don't have the budget to process return requests like this as a startup brand. At this time, we sadly can't accept any return requests other than quality issue. But as we grow, we will continue to search for sustainable ways for return of any reasons. As a female and minority owned startup, we really appreciate your understanding and support.

    If the return is caused by the consumer, consumer should be responsible for the shipping fee. The specific fee should be based on the express company you choose.
    If due to our reasons, the goods received are damaged or not correct, and the consumer is not required to bear the shipping fee for this reason.
