Full price items can be returned for a refund, credit note or free size exchange. Sale items may be returned for a credit note or free size exchange only. $8.50 will be deducted from the refund amount to cover the return shipping label. Return shipping labels for exchanges and credit notes are free of charge.



Final sale refers to items that are marked to clear. Final sale items are not eligible for refund, credit note or exchange, unless in the event of the item being faulty. You will be notified at checkout if the item you are purchasing is final sale, with a final sale notice on the product also. We recommend choosing carefully to avoid disappointment and reaching out to our online team for assistance prior to purchasing for size and style advice.  



If you have purchased an item in a Lee Mathews store location, the return policy will differ from our online return policy. Full price items purchased in store can be returned for a credit note or exchange within 7 days of purchase with a receipt. Returns are not eligible on skincare, fragrance or earrings for hygiene reasons. No refunds will be given except under Fair Trade provisions. Purchases made using a store credit are final sale and are not eligible for return. Please contact the store for further information or refer to your receipt for in store policy details.  



If your order qualifies for a refund you will be credited back on the original payment method less $8.50 for the return shipping label you will be provided. Please allow 5 business days once the refund has been issued for this amount to appear in the relevant account.If you made your purchase using an online gift or credit voucher you will be issued a new credit voucher to spend online.



Credit vouchers will be issued at the full amount of the purchase price less shipping for the return of product that has been permanently marked down. All credit vouchers will be emailed to the recipient and are valid for 3 years. Credit notes are valid online at and cannot be redeemed in store.



We offer free and easy size exchanges if you find your Lee Mathews item is not right. You will be prompted to select your new size when submitting your return online, and we will ship your new item as soon as your return is accepted by Australia Post.

If the item you are hoping to exchange for is no longer available at the time of processing, a refund or credit note will be issued depending on the item’s discount status. We are unable to exchange for different items. In this instance we suggest selecting a credit note and repurchasing.
