Free People Returns—All the Details You Need To Know

Buying clothes online can be a two-edged sword. People end up with the wrong sizes and fits easily.

If it turns out that your new Free People piece doesn’t suit you, we can help. DoNotPay offers a user-friendly guide to Free People returns. If you want to make the return process even simpler, DoNotPay is here to help.

The General Points of the Free People Return Policy

If the item you bought from Free People doesn’t fit, don’t wear it or wash it. Clothes that have been washed or worn will not be accepted for returns. All returned items also need to have their original tickets attached to be accepted back.


Articles bought online can be returned both to the stores and via online-initiated mail return. In-store purchases will be accepted back in stores only.

Some exceptions to the general Free People return policy rules are:

  • Free People Additions can’t be returned in person to Free People locations or their warehouses via an online-arranged return. You must address these returns directly to the third-party seller. Use the return label included in your package. Note that in the case of Free People Additions, you can only get a refund and not an exchange
  • Swimwear and Intimates cannot be accepted back if they’re not returned with tags, sanitary strips, or the original packaging
  • Beauty and Wellness products can only be returned if they haven’t been opened or used. You can start the return process on the website and send the item back via mail. In case you wish to do it in person, you’ll need to find the store that sells these types of products
  • Vintage Love and Vintage Revival items cannot be returned or exchanged
