We understand sizing can be hard! We also appreciate that you don't always know what suits your body until you've tried it on. We're proud to offer exchanges for any reason. We do not offer free returns. Data shows that free returns increase sales, however, it also indicates that more orders are being placed before carefully assessing size guides. This increases both outgoing and returned shipments - a consequence that affects our environment. The only proven way to decrease our negative impact on the environment is through mindful shopping. We urge you to reach out to our Customer Service team for sizing advice before your purchase.

Prevention is key!! Make sure you read our sizing chart - a lot of those that do end up exchanging say they wish they had read it before they purchased because it ended up being the right size. Also understand that all swimwear stretches after the first few wears when wet - if it's not a little tight when you first try the swimwear on then it may become saggy - don't be that person! Get them wet a few times and they will give quite a bit and mould to your body perfectly. Especially for our pieces without adjustments - the crop straps should be too short, the bottoms should be a little tight around your hips.

Also, make sure you sort out your tanlines before you decide whether a cut suits you or not - it makes a world of difference!

We accept returns of unworn, unwashed and undamaged items within 30 days of purchase for an exchange or Store Credit.

Whilst we hope this never happens, if you believe your swimwear is faulty or damaged, please accept our apology. Email us on with your name, order number and a photo of the faulty or damaged item. Our Customer Support team will work with you to issue a replacement in the first instance. Failing that, a refund will be provided.


In line with your rights and obligations as a consumer, we happily accept exchanges, provided you meet the conditions outlined below. Your order came with an exchange card, which you must complete and enclose with the returned swimwear. If you no longer have your exchange card, please download, print and complete the form by clicking here.

EXCHANGE CONDITIONS: 1) the swimwear must be in 'as-new' condition – unwashed, unworn and unused with any tags or sanitary liners still attached (where applicable), free of any perfume or other substances. You are, however, more than welcome to try it on – just keep your underwear on underneath and try-on after a shower, before you put on any deodorants or creams. Every return is inspected by our team and if these conditions are not met, the items will be returned to you at your cost.
2) you must post a completed Exchange Card and the returned swimwear within 30 days of receiving your order
3) the swimwear should be neatly packaged and well protected so it arrives to us in the same condition that it was sent - this includes the cotton bags and their correct barcode labels. It is not necessary to send returned items in the gift box
4) once you post your item back, it is your responsibility to check your tracking number to see when it arrives to us. Ark Swimwear will not accept responsibility for lost or delayed items. If this is a concern, ensure you take insurance out on your return postage
5) we will only accept one exchange per order. To clarify, we do not exchange goods that have already been exchanged
6) whilst we endeavour to process within 48 hours, you should allow up to ten (10) business days for us to process your return and issue your store credit or send your new requested item.
EXCHANGE PROCESS: 1) fill out the exchange form that was included inside your gift box
2) if you have an account with us, ensure your details are correct – specifically your shipping address and phone number.
3) pack the swimwear back into the cotton bags, ensuring you have the correct label on the bag. Either reuse the original Ark Swimwear bubble bag, or use your own protective satchel. You do not need to include the gift box - this is yours to keep and reuse. Ensure you keep your tracking details and post to: Ark Swimwear Returns, Level 2, 577 Pittwater Road, Brookvale NSW 2100, Australia
4) follow your tracking to determine when the swimwear arrives at Ark Swimwear (this is your responsibility, not ours)
5) if you are returning 1 item only, we will send out your replacement after we have processed your return. If you are returning 2 or more items, we will issue you a Store Credit so that you can purchase your new items in your own time. You will receive an email from us as soon as this is issued (make sure you save us to your safe list with your email client!). All items shipped for an exchange or using Store Credit from a return will be shipped via a standard service. If you need it shipped via Express, please get in touch with our team at
6) whilst we endeavour to process within 48 hours, you should allow up to ten (10) business days for us to process your return and issue your store credit or send your new requested item. Your Store Credit is valid for twelve months from issuance.
7) orders placed using a Store Credit from a return will be shipped via standard post (not Express), unless you include a further purchase with your order, which we will then automatically upgrade to Express Shipping.

TIP: In some countries PayPal offers a service that covers your return shipment costs. If you paid for your original order via PayPal, please see PayPal's website for your country to determine whether this applies to you and ensure that you follow their guidelines.


Ark Swimwear does not offer refunds unless goods are received in a faulty condition and we cannot rectify it.
