How secure is online shopping?

In today’s world security issues are at the forefront of our thoughts. We take online shopping and keeping our customers identity safe very seriously. That’s why we’ve enlisted the services of RapidSSL to give all our online customers peace of mind. 

RapidSSL ensures all communications between our customers and our website are completely private and secure.  Sites secured by RapidSSL provide up to 256 bit encryption thereby offering the highest level of encryption and security possible.

Why do you want my contact information?

We ask you to supply the following information during the ordering process: name, billing address, mailing address, email address and telephone number.

We use this information for the following purpose:

  • To complete your order and send you the product that you have chosen to purchase. 
  • To contact you by email after the purchase  

Why do you need my email address?

Primarily so we can contact you if there is any problems or delays with your order -we find that most people respond faster to emails. 

We will also contact you to let you know our latest news or special offers.  If however you do not want to hear from us -you can let us know and we will take you off the database. 

The quickest way to be taken off our database is to unsubscribe from the last/next email you receive from us, by clicking through where directed and choosing unsubscribe.

Ordering

How do I place an order?

We try to make the order process as easy as possible.  When you have found an item you wish to buy you simply choose the colour and size you need, along with the quantity and click on the “add to cart” button.

Once you have finished browsing and have chosen all the items you wish to buy go to the checkout.  Follow the steps to choose your billing address, shipping address and payment method.  Review your order and if everything looks ok click on the “process order” button.

By submitting your order at the checkout you are offering to buy the goods and allowing us to use your personal details for the purpose of supplying those goods. 

Do you offer gift vouchers?

Yes we sell myescape gift vouchers, these come in values of $25, $50 and $100 or you can choose the amount.  You can purchase these the same way you would buy a product, just select the value you want, click the “add to the cart” button, then go to the checkout to complete your order.

How do I redeem my gift voucher when making a purchase?

Myescape gift vouchers can be redeemed online as a method of payment.  At the checkout you will need to enter the gift voucher number when prompted during the payment process. 

Please note no change will be given when you use a gift voucher to pay for an item.  If the item is of a lower value than your gift voucher value no change will be given.  We recommend you choose an item which is of equal value to the gift voucher or add a smaller item to your order to make up the difference in price.

If the total cost of the order is over the gift voucher amount you will need to pay the difference with another form of payment.  i.e. PayPal or credit card.

No unfortunately the prices on the site are the same wherever you live in the world.

Product Information

I am pregnant, do you have maternity wear?

Yes we have a range of maternity workout clothes which look great on and support your growing belly. 

Why are your yoga mats more expensive than others I can find in big sports stores?

Our yoga mats are more expensive because we mainly stock eco-friendly biodegradable mats that are made in a sustainable way.  Or top quality mats made sustainably that come with a life time guarantee.  Unfortunately because of this they are pricier than some yoga mats that are mass produced in China but we think it is worth paying a bit extra to know you are looking after the environment.

How do I wash your clothing?

All of our clothes have washing instructions on them.  Most are machine washable but we advise you to check the washing instructions on the label before washing.

Why would I need clothes made from performance fabric for exercising?

Performance Fabrics are those which provide functional qualities, such as moisture management, UV protection, anti-microbial properties, thermo-regulation, water resistance, and wind resistance.

Clothes made from these newly-engineered fabrics move moisture away from your skin and isolate it on the outer surface so the moisture can evaporate, keep your skin a lower temperature, provide protection against the elements and control the growth of odour-causing bacteria.  All of these features allow you to be more comfortable when exercising so you can focus on getting fit and active and not what your clothes are doing.

Fit and Sizes

Do you have a size guide?

Sizes vary for each brand.  The appropriate size guide for each product can be found in the size guide tab on the product page.

How do I find my size?

We display a size guide on every product page to ensure you get the correct sizing the first time.  

If you are unsure of your size then measure you bust, waist and hip then refer to the size guide for that product to determine which size you will fit.

When your body measurements are midway between two sizes go to the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit. 

I cannot find my size on the list what should I do?

If you cannot locate your size on the drop down list, it may be that we are temporarily sold out of this size.  Please contact our customer care team at[email protected] to see if we have a few items left in this size somewhere in our warehouse or to see if we are able to source this size for you from our manufacturers.

Do you cater for all bust sizes?

We cater for both the big and smaller busted lady, there are styles and sizes to suit both.  Currently our sports bras range from a 32a to a 36C.  We do aim to expand our sports bra selection and size range within time. 

If you are interested in buying one of our sports bras and we don’t have your size, please contact us on [email protected] and we will endeavour to get your size. 

Which sports bra should I wear?

Sports bras come in different impact levels which provide varying levels of support.  To choose the most suitable sports bra you need to consider the size of your bust and the type of exercise you are going to be doing.

A high impact sports bra should be worn when you are doing high impact sports like running, aerobics, netball, soccer, volleyball -anything that involves running and jumping.  These bras provide extra support and reduce bounce.  

A low impact sports bra would be appropriate for more gentle forms of exercise such as walking, yoga, pilates and stretch classes.

Would I need to wear a bra if the top has an internal shelf bra or built in support?

Some of our technical tops come with hidden support but we recommend that you also wear a sports bra if you are above a B cup.

Do you give discounts to people who work in the health and fitness industry?

Yes we offer health and fitness professionals a 10% discount on all our products.

How do I use my fitness professional discount when ordering online?

To use your industry discount all you have to do is make sure you sign into your account before placing any items in your basket.  Then at checkout ensure you enter the discount code provided before you process the order and make the payment.

What do I do if I forget to enter my discount code?

Unfortunately once you have placed and confirmed your order we are unable to honour your discount code. This must be entered while at the checkout before you enter in your payment details.

Why won’t my discount code work?

It is most likely that your offer code is no longer working because it has either expired or it is not a valid discount code. We suggest that you check the dates for this discount offer as well as check that you have entered the discount code correctly.  Many of our offer codes are also for one use only and will not be valid for a second use.

Can I use 2 codes at once?

While we all agree this would be nice, unfortunately only one offer is valid at a time.  If you do have 2 offers we suggest using the larger discount.

If you have a health and fitness discount code you cannot use this in conjunction with another promotional code.
