Holiday order deadlines for 2020

We know how important the holiday season is for lingerie shoppers, whether to send and receive gifts, or simply to treat yourself! This year, Covid-19 has been slowing down shipments worldwide, so we want to be especially clear with our delivery deadlines. To guarantee that you'll receive your order before Christmas or New Year's, please carefully read the below details. (If you have any questions or concerns about shipping dates, you can also contact us for personalized advice.)

Processing times

Our processing times vary according to the item(s) ordered. For in-stock and ready to ship items, we ship within 24 hours (excluding weekends and holidays). Our inventory of in-stock garments is constantly being updated, so please check back often.

Many of our collections are made-to-order and the processing time for these pieces varies according to our production queue. November and December are our busiest months, and our lead time may increase up to 7-10 days. Because Angela Friedman is a small business and we create everything in-house with ethical manufacturing practices, there is a limit to how quickly we can produce made-to-order garments. Please allow at least 1 week for production time, in addition to shipping time for your order. Again, if you would like to shop garments that are already in stock and ready to ship, please visit our current inventory page.

Leading up to the holidays, we do offer rush production services for an additional fee, subject to availability. Contact us for an estimate.

Shipping times

Shipping times vary based on geography. For international parcels, pressure on customs services may also impact delivery times, especially due to Covid-19 and the busy holiday season. We currently advise customers to expect delivery to take 2-4 days within the UK, 3-10 days to the EU, 2-4 weeks to the USA, and 3-4 weeks to the rest of the world.

We also offer express options for the UK, EU, and USA as part of our regular services. Simply select the Rush Shipping option at checkout. (For a rush shipping quote for elsewhere in the world, contact us.) Express shipping takes only 1-2 days to the UK and EU and 2-4 days to the USA. This is the best recommended service for the month of December, due to possible delays within postal services worldwide.

Recommended holiday order deadlines

United Kingdom: For all collections, place your orders by December 14 for standard delivery or December 16 for rush shipping. For in-stock items, place your orders by December 20 for standard delivery or December 22 for rush shipping.

European Union: For all collections, place your orders by December 4 for standard delivery or December 12 for rush shipping. For in-stock items, place your orders by December 10 for standard delivery or December 18 for rush shipping.

Final notes on delivery times

These are recommendations only. Later shipments may in fact arrive in time, although we cannot make guarantees after these dates. Any pre-order items will ship according to the details on their product pages and no sooner. We cannot be held responsible for unexpected shipping delays, as we have no control over postal services or couriers once the parcels have left our office. Please plan ahead to avoid disappointment, or consider buying a gift certificate for email delivery within 24 hours instead.
