What make Step Ones special?
We believe we’ve created some underwear that’s pretty darn special. Here’s why:
Step One’s are designed to stop chafing in its tracks. The Ultraglyde™ panels between the legs allow you to glide when you walk and prevent the dreaded ride-up while they’re at it!
Step One’s are also made from Viscose derived from Organically Grown Bamboo. So not only are they good for you, but it’s also good for the planet!
We are so confident you'll love your Step One underwear, they come with a 30-day First Pair Guarantee, so if you don’t love them... they're free!
What's the First Pair Guarantee?
Our First Pair Guarantee allows you to purchase a pair with confidence, knowing that if you are not satisfied with the fit or style, we will refund your purchase or send you a new size. This means that if you purchase a 4-pack of our underwear and only try one pair on, you can return the unopened pairs and receive four pairs in the new size or style of your choice.
What is your warranty policy?
We stand by what we make. For this reason, we offer a 12-month warranty on all manufacturer defects. The 12-month period starts on the date of purchase. If a First Pair Guarantee or exchange takes place, the warranty is covered from the date of the original purchase.
You are required to keep the original faulty items for the warranty period and if requested, return them to us via mail, in the instance we are required to return them to our supplier. Step One reserves the absolute right to not replace items if we believe they have been used in extraordinary situations or they have deliberately been tampered with.
Step Ones are designed to be worn the correct way, wearing them inside out will void any warranty claims as this creates excessive wearing on the stitching as it's designed to be worn on the outside of the garment. Please note: wearing our product in water (both salt and chlorine) will also void the warranty.
If there's a problem, please contact us on email@example.com or slide into our DMs and we will advise you of the steps to replace any faulty garments.
Please note for all warranty claims the garments will either need to be returned to Step One, or photographic evidence will need to be sent to us prior to being issued any replacements (but please, keep it PG people! This is a workplace!)
All Flag labels must be intact for a warranty claim. The Flag Label can be found on the front of the garment that would normally sit on the right thigh.
No garment manufacturer in the world will offer a 100% quality rate, but we do try really hard! There will be the odd defect, but, take a deep breath, it's OK, we will replace it! Just hit us up on socials or email us!
What size am I?
Your Step One underwear should feel comfortable and secure in all the right places, but not restrict your precious goods at all!
Our men's range does run on the smaller size so if you prefer the underwear to fit slightly less tight, then pick a size up!
How do I care for my Step Ones?
We recommend a cold machine wash with a gentle soap to best maintain the integrity of the organic bamboo fabric. While we do recommend a line dry, you can tumble dry using a delicate setting and/or a low heat to prevent any damage to the garment.
What's the difference between Boxer Brief's and Trunks?
They are exactly the same in terms of the features and materials. The only difference is that the Trunks are 3cm shorter in length then Boxer Brief's.
Do the women's boxers have the same features as the men’s boxers?
Pretty much, minus the pouch of course! The women's boxers feature our anti-chafe panels, and super soft and moisture-wicking viscose bamboo material
What is women’s boxer sizing like?
Slightly more form-fitting which will give a figure-hugging feel. They are designed to enhance your individual shape with the perfect fit and cut. We do recommend going up a size should you find yourself to be in-between sizes. If you have tried our Men’s Boxer Briefs, we suggest you go up one size.
Are they shapewear?
Not exactly. Although the fit and style have been designed to support your body, they aren’t shapewear as such. Our women’s underwear is designed to be worn as exactly that - underwear. Although some women enjoy wearing them as loungewear around the house too.
Are they see-through?
This depends on the shade. As with most fabrics, lighter colours tend to have a degree of transparency. If you’re after a more non-transparent pair of underwear, best stick to the darker colours.
Are they static?
Nope. Our underwear is made from Viscose which is derived from Bamboo. Bamboo is a natural fibre that possesses anti-static properties.
Can I wear pads/liners with these?
Absolutely! This particular style works best with liners without wings. Please keep in mind that your Lady Steps can take a few washes before liners stick to them!
Do they have a gusset?
Yes, our women’s underwear is double lined with a gusset made of the same, soft organic fabric that’s made from Viscose derived from Bamboo.
