Returns Policy:

We understand that on occasion buyers may need to return products, whether due to a fault in the item or with our service, the size or colour is incorrect or perhaps you just don't like the product once you receive it.

Whatever the reason, our policy allows you 30 days to return the item unwashed, unworn and in its original undamaged packaging alongside a brief note stating the reason for the return.  The returned item must be in its original condition to enable us to re-sell it. 

Due to hygiene reasons we cannot accept returns of hosiery that has been tried on as they will not be in an 'as new' condition. Hosiery cannot be returned once it has been out of the packet due to their delicate nature so we suggest that customers check the colour and size before opening the packet. 

Please note that it is the responsibility of the buyer to examine the product carefully and note any faults before trying on as any stockings, tights or hold-ups with pulls, snags or ladders cannot be considered as a 'factory defect'  once the item has been taken out of the packet or tried on.

We cannot be held responsible for returned items which do not arrive so customers should ensure they retain evidence of posting.


Fautly items. Any defective item can be returned for a full refund or replacement, including postage costs.

A full refund including return postage costs will also be offered if we have made any errors in your order.

In the case of items returned that are without faults, or where no errors have been made in the order by Swanky Pins Fashion Hosiery, the cost of the return postage costs will not be refunded.

Exchanges: Should you decide to exchange a product we will not charge postage costs for the replacement item to be sent. Once we have received the original item, your replacement item will be sent within 1 working day.

We are not able to offer a refund or exchange on an item where a customer does not have proof of posting should the item not arrive.

Once your return arrives in an acceptable condition a refund or replacement will be processed within 24 hours.

Returns should be sent to:

Swanky Pins Fashion Hosiery
