You agree and acknowledge that through your Provider subscription you are borrowing the Products and that ownership of the Products remains with Provider at all times. We lend our Products only to adults who may purchase a subscription package with a valid credit card or other approved payment method. As such, you represent that you are 18 years old or older.
You can borrow 3 Products any particular time.
Provider reserves the right to change this Agreement and other guidelines or rules posted on the Website from time to time at its sole discretion. Your continued use of the Website, or of any Materials or Services accessible through it (including the continued borrowing of Products), after such update has been posted constitutes your acceptance of the changes.

You should periodically check this Agreement to view the then current terms. If you violate or fail to comply with any of the terms of this Agreement, your authorization to use this Website and to receive our Services automatically terminates.
THE PROVIDER SERVICE. The Services allows registered members (referred to as "members") to access the Website and borrow Products from Provider in accordance with the member's selected subscription package and these Terms of Service. With payment of the subscription fee, the member can choose Products to borrow from our online selection on the Website, and have them shipped to the member's address. The specific rules that govern the borrowing of Products vary and will depend on your particular subscription package; these rules are outlined on our Website. We limit the number of Products that a member may borrow at any one time, and such limitation depends on your particular subscription package. Keep in mind that for purposes of determining the number of items you may borrow at any particular time, Products are considered borrowed and in your possession while in transit and until the Products are delivered to us. Delivery time for a Product a member selects to borrow may vary based upon inventory availability, the member’s delivery address, the time when a member places an order or return notifies, the number of items the member already has in their possession, prioritization, and other factors related to shipment or delivery. As such, Provider is unable to make any guarantees as to actual shipment or delivery times. We reserve the right to process orders and otherwise ship to our members in accordance with our delivery and mailing schedules. The risk of loss for Products shipped passes to the member upon the delivery your purchase of the Product(s). Likewise, we will bear the risk of loss once you deliver the Products(s) to our chosen carrier with our return labels affixed to the package. In order to confirm that the risk of loss has transferred back to us, you must record the tracking number of the return envelope. If you fail to follow this step, the risk of loss will remain with you until the Product(s) are delivered to Provider. At all other times, you bear the risk of loss and are responsible for the Product(s).
We reserve the right to require the return of any or all borrowed Products in the member's possession in the event the member fails to make required payments on time or in the event other factors arise which, in our sole discretion, increase the risk of non-timely payment by the member.
SHIPPING, ORDERS AND RETURNS Subject to the limitation regarding the maximum number of Products you may possess at any one time depending on your subscription package, you may order and return Products as many times as you wish while you are a member, and provided that you comply with these terms, shipping costs will be paid by us. With every set of Products shipped to you we include a return package for which postage has already been paid, which you may use to return Products with absolutely no shipping cost. You must return all of the Products in your possession in the provided return package in order to receive free shipping. If you purchase a Product through the “Try Then Buy” option while you are in possession of the maximum number of Products that are permitted under your subscription package we will wait until you have returned all Products associated with your subscription package before shipping out the next Product. All Products must be returned together in the same provided return package.
BECOMING A MEMBER AND OBTAINING AN ACCOUNT. Before you can begin use of the Services, you must register as a member through the Website and obtain an account ("Account"). You must have a valid credit card and Internet access to use our service. By registering as a member through the Website, you give us permission to save your credit card information and to use that information to charge your card every billing period for your selected subscription. You further authorize the use of your card for any Try Then Buy purchases. You must be 18 years of age or older to register as a member and use the Services. Your membership will automatically renew for successive membership periods of your plan, unless you cancel your membership or your membership is otherwise determined by Provider to be terminated under these terms and conditions. You agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Website's registration form (such information referred to as the "Registration Data"), and you agree to maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you move or your contact information changes, please notify customer service immediately. At all times, you must provide contact information with which we can reach you via telephone and email. We may contact you from time to time in order to evaluate our service and to ensure your optimal utilization of the Services. Calls may be monitored and recorded for record keeping, training, and quality-assurance purposes. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account and password and for restricting access to your computer. You are solely responsible for any activity related to your Account. If you suspect any unauthorized use of your Account, notify us immediately.
BILLING. When you join as a member you will be required to provide us with accurate, complete and current credit card information for a valid credit card that you are authorized to use. We do not accept pre-paid cards or external gift cards, as determined by Bank Identification Number. By purchasing a subscription, you authorize us or our agent to bill your credit card the applicable subscription fees, based on your selected subscription package, any and all applicable taxes, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Services, such as item upgrades, and “Try Then Buy” purchases. The applicable subscription fees and taxes will be charged to your credit card on the date your membership is created and every monthly billing period thereafter, on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your membership (the "Membership Anniversary Day"). If your Membership Anniversary Day does not exist in a particular month (because your Membership Anniversary Day is the 29th, 30th or the 31st of the month) then we will charge your credit card on the last day of that month. Other fees, including but not limited to “Try Then Buy” Purchases will be charged to your credit card as you incur them.
If we do not receive payment from your credit card provider or if your credit card expires or is rejected, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. Following any such non-payment, we may require you to provide a second valid credit card before continuing to use the Services. You authorize us to charge outstanding fees and other amounts due us against any credit card you have on file with us. We reserve the right to take all steps necessary to collect amounts due from you, including but not limited to legal action and/or using third party collection agencies.
If your account is more than 30 days past due, and is forwarded to a collections agency, you will additionally be liable for any recovery fees charged by the agency. You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to your credit card by the issuer, bank, or financial institution including, but not limited to, membership, overdraft, insufficient funds, and over the credit limit fees. You agree to notify us about any billing problems or discrepancies within 90 days after they first appear on your credit card statement. If you do not bring these issues to our attention within 90 days, you agree that you waive your right to dispute such problems or discrepancies. We may modify the price, content, or nature of the Services at any time. At our sole discretion, we may grandfather in the prices of certain members based on factors such as sign up date and good standing. Provider will notify members receiving such grandfathered rates prior to the implementation of any price change. If we modify any of the foregoing terms, you may cancel your membership, and such cancellation shall be your sole remedy. We may provide notice of any such changes by email, notice to you upon log-in, or by publishing them on the Website.
CANCELLATION, COSTS, AND REFUNDS. You may cancel your membership at any time by following the procedure on the “Cancel Subscription” section on your account page of the Website (account page provides call to cancel information). You will receive an email confirming the cancellation of your account within one (1) hour of the cancellation taking effect. If you do not receive a cancellation confirmation email within one hour, please call Customer Service immediately as your cancellation may not be complete.
Cancellation is effective immediately upon completing the cancellation process, which means that after you cancel your membership you will not be sent additional Products. You will, however, be permitted to keep the Products that are already in your possession for the remaining portion of the membership period for which you have already been billed. We do not offer refunds, partial refunds or credits on any Provider subscriptions.
If you cancel your account, you must ensure that all borrowed Products are delivered to us within 7 days following the expiration of such membership period. Provider recommends that you mail the Products to us as soon as possible after the expiration of your membership term so that the Products are in fact delivered to us within the 7 day period. You must record the tracking numbers and the contents of all bags sent after cancellation. If all outstanding Products are not delivered to us within that time, Provider reserves the right to charge you a Replacement Fee for each of the items outstanding at the expiration of the 7 days. The Replacement Fee is 75% of the retail price of the Product. Failure to return all outstanding Products in your possession in accordance with this paragraph will result in charges to your credit card for the Replacement Fees. You agree and understand that by failing to return an outstanding Product as provided herein, you are agreeing to the Replacement Fee and you understand that the Product, upon payment of the Replacement Fee, is purchased by you and is thereafter your property.
BUYING GARMENT AT HOME. You may buy the Product At Home with you in your physical possession by using the online “Try Then Buy" option. When you confirm the purchase of the garment, your credit card on file with us will be charged and the garment is yours to keep forever. After the transaction is processed, we will remove the item from your At Home section and send out an additional Product. The price shown, at any point in time, is good for that time only, and is subject to change. If a “Try Then Buy” price is not displayed, it is not yet eligible for purchase – please check back at a later time. The Products At Home are sent to you after due checking and cleaning. Check the garment thoroughly and satisfy yourself of its condition before making a purchase. NOTE, ONCE YOU PURCHASE A PRODUCT THE TRANSACTION IS COMPLETE AND WE WILL NOT SUBSEQUENTLY ACCEPT A RETURN OF THAT PRODUCT OR REFUND YOU FOR ANY REASON.
DAMAGED PRODUCTS Provider will not hold you responsible for normal wear and tear that occurs through use of the Products. However, we do reserve the right to charge your credit card a Replacement Fee for each Product returned in a damaged condition that, in our sole discretion, exceeds normal wear and tear, or evidences recklessness or carelessness with respect to your possession or use of the Product.
ITEMS ERRONEOUSLY RETURNED TO PROVIDER From time to time, we receive items that do not belong to Provider in our return envelopes. We are not responsible for such items, but we will use reasonable efforts to notify the sender of any items discovered, but we do not have a lost and found service, and are not responsible or liable for items sent to us in error. In case you realize you’ve sent something important, please notify customer service as soon as possible so we can attempt to locate it. If we are able to find it, we will work with you to secure its return. At all times, however, the liability for the item remains with you.
