My STRONG self(ie) box never arrived. What should I do?
We're here to help call carriers, companies and track down packages, but there is only so much we can do. If the delivery was unsuccessful due to customer error, (such as an incorrectly entered address) we can send a replacement box once the original box is returned to us. There is a $12 service fee to send the replacement box to cover additional shipping costs.
My box says delivered but the recipient did not receive it.
Be sure to look around the house and ask neighbors as there is a good chance it's hiding somewhere (trust us, it happens all the time). If a box is delivered according to your tracking but the recipient didn't get it, our customer care team will do everything our power to locate it by calling the carrier. Beyond that, unfortunately this is a rare situation that's out of our control, and could be attributable to any number of things, including the package being stolen or lost. We recommend filing a carrier claim, and we'd be happy to do the same on our end!

STRONG self(ie) occasionally will include a clothing item in the membership boxes. We work with many vendors to source our clothing and do the best we can to get the clothing to run true to size. Clothing in the Bloom box will be Youth sizes and clothing in the BURST box will be Adult sizes. Bloom box members can choose youth and adult sizing. If adult size is chosen for a Bloom box, the clothing item will be the one from the Burst box. We will send the size listed on your subscription so be sure to update the size as your girl grows.
As we improve the Customer Portal, please email us your size changes. Our email is email@example.com
If you have any special sizing requests or prefer not to receive clothing in your box, please email us.
Oh no! I forgot to update my sizing for the box and the clothing item does not fit! What do I do?
Keeping your subscription updated with your girls size is the members responsibility. We send email reminders to all of our members throughout the season as a reminder. If the clothing item in your box does not fit please contact us as soon as possible. You can exchange the item if we have extra sizes available.
