Return Policy

Please email to obtain a Return Authorisation Number (RAN). Please let us know your full name, order number, item(s) and reason for return. If you would like an exchange please provide your preferred style/size/colour. If eligible for a return, we will email you with a RAN and confirm whether a refund, exchange or credit note will be issued.

Please note the following requirements for returns (subject to the Australian Consumer Law):

  • Requests for returns must be made by emailing within 7 days of the date of order.
  • Returned item(s) must be received by Matilda Australia within 14 days of the date of order.
  • Item(s) must be in the original condition (unworn, unmarked, undamaged) with any original tags still attached.
  • A return authorisation number (RAN) is required.
  • Full priced items that have not been worn, in the original condition with the original tags still attached may be exchanged (once) for a different available size or style, or returned for a refund or store credit.
  • Sale items and discounted items other than clearance items (including items purchased using a discount code other than the member discount) cannot be returned for a refund although you may be issued a credit note or exchange the sale item for any other available item up to the equal amount of the final sale price.
  • Items may only be exchanged once. The replacement item sent by way of exchange is not returnable.
  • Where items are returned that were purchased using a credit note (including a credit note issued by way of a Gift Card), the original credit note will be re-issued less a $20 administrative fee to cover shipping, processing and handling.
  • Items marked online as "Clearance" are sold by way of final sale and cannot be exchanged or returned.
  • Lay-by items cannot be returned for a refund. Lay-by items may be returned for an exchange or credit note within 14 days of the date of final payment. 
  • In the case of faulty items - Where the items fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure, Matilda Australia is entitled to choose between providing you with a repair, replacement or other suitable remedy. Exchange of items is subject to availability. Matilda Australia classifies items to be faulty (i.e. not acceptable quality) if they are received damaged, or where a manufacturing fault occurs within 6 months of purchase. Items that are damaged as a result of wear are not considered to be faulty.
  • Shipping and handling charges are not refundable. You are responsible for posting your return goods. We recommend using a prepaid service that offers tracking. This ensures safe receipt of goods and prevents missing items.
  • Once a return is received, refunds/exchanges/credit notes will be issued within 7 days.
