|Customer Service & Return Policy
You may return most unused items purchased at Madre Gear within 30 days of the original delivery. We will pay the return shipping costs if the product is defective or the return is a result of our error. If the item is returned for any other reason you are responsible for the return shipping costs. If your item is returned within 30 days of the original delivery and qualifies for a refund please note that Madre Gear will issue the refund minus the original shipping fees. We will credit you in the same manner as your original payment within 7 days of receiving the returned item.
If your return qualifies, and you wish to exchange the original item for other merchandise at Madre Gear or store credit, we will issue you a store credit for the merchandise less the cost of the original shipping fees. Please contact us before sending your item if it is more than 30 since delivery. Returns received after 30 days will be evaluated on a case by case basis as a courtesy and will be good for store credit only if accepted. We understand that moms are busy people so please contact us if you need help working out the details of your return. We want you to be happy with your items!
Please note the following regarding our return policy:
- Madre Gear will not accept returns on items that are considered personal or hygienic items like panties, breast pads, compression undergarments, teethers, and baby bottles.
- Madre Gear will not accept items that are for one time use such as belly cast kits, tummy tattoos and journals.
- Nursing bras are returnable provided that they have not been worn or washed. We understand that sometimes it is necessary to try on this type of item, but when checking for proper fit please don't wear the item for longer than a few minutes to avoid getting deodorant or stains on it as we may not be able to accept returns on items worn longer than a few minutes or items that have been stained. This policy is also applicable for all apparel except for personalized items.
- All items must be returned in new condition with the tags attached.
- Madre Gear will not accept returns on items that appear to have been worn, washed, or are odorous, including with perfume and deodorant. Please take care to avoid deodorant stains and smudges when trying on clothing as you may encounter a restocking fee or your item may be returned to you with postage fees due upon receipt of your returned package.
- Madre Gear will not accept returns on items listed in the Outlet. These items have been marked down considerably and are a FINAL SALE.
- Madre Gear will not accept returns on personalized items, except in the case of defective merchandise.
- Shipping charges are non-refundable.
- The Belly Bandit is considered an undergarment and has a slightly different policy (please see Belly Bandit policy below).
