Holiday order deadlines for 2023
We know how important the holiday season is for lingerie shoppers, whether to send and receive gifts, or simply to treat yourself! Depending on your location, there may be some shipping delays, so we're encouraging everyone to complete their holiday shopping as early as possible. Or avoid the rush and consider buying a digital gift card instead.
Important: If you need a guaranteed delivery before the holidays, we recommend ordering early. We cannot 100% guarantee a delivery date for the postal service (our standard tracked option), and even courier-based rush shipping times may vary based on your location or customs facilities. We have listed recommended order-by dates below, but we are not responsible for any delays with either couriers or the postal system, as their times may vary during this busy season.
Holiday order deadlines 2023
For delivery on or before Saturday, December 23, please order by these dates, according to your shipping location:
United Kingdom: Order by December 16 for standard or December 19 for rush shipping. For any made-to-order* items, order by December 6.
European Union: Order by December 9 for standard or December 14 for rush shipping. For any made-to-order* items, order by December 1.
United States: Order by November 29 for standard or December 12 for rush shipping. For any made-to-order* items, order by November 24.
Other worldwide destinations: Order by November 26 for standard or December 9 for rush shipping. For any made-to-order* items, order by November 22.
*In stock and ready-to-ship items include all bralettes and underwear. Made-to-order items include lounge wear (robes, slips, camisoles, and tap pants), silk ruffled panties, suspender belts, and custom items.
Are you waiting for a Black Friday or Cyber Monday sale to shop? Well, we're not having one! We know that customers often feel pressured to shop during a small window of opportunity for flash sales, but you can rest assured that you're getting the best price every day of the year.
We don't ever offer general discount codes or seasonal sales, because we don't believe in artificially inflating our prices to cover markdowns later, like most retailers do. Instead, we believe in providing you with fair, consistent pricing year-round, which allows us to give you beautiful, handcrafted lingerie, and our staff, contractors, and vendors living wages. You can read more about our No-Sales Policy here.
Our processing times vary according to the items ordered. For in-stock and ready to ship items, we ship within 1 business day, right through Saturday, December 23. (This includes all bras and knickers!) Our inventory of in-stock garments is constantly being updated, so please check back often.
Some of our designs are made-to-order, which is denoted on each product by a special "Made to order | Add to cart" button. Because Angela Friedman is a small business and we create everything in-house with ethical manufacturing practices, there's a limit to how quickly we can produce made-to-order garments. For made-to-order pieces only, please allow 1-2 weeks for production time in addition to the shipping time for your order. If you are purchasing both in-stock items (like bras and panties) and made-to-order items (like robes and suspender belts), please place 2 separate orders if you would like the in-stock pieces to ship immediately - Otherwise we will hold your entire order until it is ready to ship.
Our offices will be closed from December 25th to January 2nd, so there will be no production or shipping during that time.
Final notes and advice
If you have unfortunately missed the above deadlines, you can still contact us for a rush production quote and/or express shipping options. (Additional fees apply.) See the note at the bottom of this page for details on how to request an immediate quote.
These are recommendations only. Later shipments may in fact arrive in time, although we cannot make guarantees after these dates. We aren't responsible for any unexpected shipping delays and no refunds will be given for delayed parcels, 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 digital gift card.
