How is your company responding to the COVID-19 pandemic?
We are working with our distributor to ensure safe working environments and that precautions are taken to make sure your items are handled with the utmost care. Due to the stay-at-home orders, we previously experienced longer delivery times.
Thankfully, we have been able to process orders on schedule between 7-14 business days. If we anticipate additional delays, we will update it here. You will also receive personal updates along the way. We hate waiting for things too but we do thank you for your support and patience.
We have also created a Survivors Collection inspired by the pandemic and will donate 10% of all sales of the shirts in this collection to the nonprofit Direct Relief Fund. This organization is geared to help frontline responders & the communities they serve.
How long until I receive my order?
It will usually take 7-14 BUSINESS days for US orders. At least 14 days for International orders. Due to COVID-19 and influx of holiday shipping there have been some delays in our shipping. Thankfully, we have been able to process orders on schedule. If we anticipate additional delays, we will update it here. We thank you for your support and patience. As the holiday season approaches we recommend planning early to ensure items are received in a timely manner. Some items may ship separately (i.e. mugs and embroidered pieces). You can Track Your Package here.
Are you stuck up, mean girls that think you’re better than everybody?
On the contrary, we are fun, cool women with certain standards. We got tired of others calling us "Bougie" in a negative way. We like what we like and that's not bad. We embrace everyone's standards and feel EVERYONE can Be Bougie in their own way.
What size should I order?
We have S-3XL shirts in most orders. We celebrate the various shapes of our clients. To best suit the majority, our shirts are unisex. If you desire a more fitted look please go down one size.
We carry baby, kids, toddler sizes for a selection collection of shirts that range from 3mo to 5T. Check out our Bougie Like Me Collection.

What is the policy for Holiday Shipping Delays?
The postal delivery service this holiday season has become overwhelmed with orders and their tracking systems have not been updated regularly. While we wish we could make their process more efficient, once your package is delivered to their facilities, the arrival times are out of our control. We ask for patience and grace as they try to do their best to get your packages to you as soon as possible.
We ask that you outreach to each carrier in your tracking email directly for updates. All of our packages are delivered via First Class Mail.
For the USPS: Call: 1-800-275-8777. Follow the prompts to speak with some directly, follow the prompts for "Track a Package" and then after you enter the information , ask to speak to a representative. Please be aware the hold time is very long.
For DHL Call: 317-554-5191 M-F 8-9pm(EST) and follow the prompts. Some of our packages will start with DHL and then get delivered via USPS.
For FedEx Call: 1.800.463.3339
If you are like us and need to speak to a human hopefully these numbers will be helpful (after you get through the automated prompts.).
