Holiday order deadlines for 2021

We know how important the holiday season is for lingerie shoppers, whether to send and receive gifts, or simply to treat yourself! Depending on the location, there continue to be some postal delays due to Covid, so we're encouraging everyone to complete their holiday shopping as early as possible. Or avoid the rush and consider buying a gift certificate instead - we offer email delivery within 24 hours.

Important: If you need a guaranteed delivery before the holidays, we recommend choosing rush shipping. We cannot 100% guarantee a delivery date for the postal service (our standard tracked option), and 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 the postal system, as their times vary much more than rush couriers.

Holiday order deadlines

United Kingdom: For in-stock items, order by December 16 for either standard or rush shipping. For all other collections, order by December 10 for standard delivery or December 13 for rush shipping. 

European Union: For in-stock items, order by December 14 for standard delivery or December 16 for rush shipping (recommended). For all other collections, order by December 7 for standard delivery or December 9 for rush shipping (recommended).

United States: For in-stock items, order by December 3 for standard delivery or December 15 for rush shipping (recommended). For all other collections, order by November 29 for standard delivery or December 10 for rush shipping (recommended).

Other worldwide destinations: For in-stock items, order by November 26 for standard delivery or December 14 for rush shipping (recommended). For all other collections, order by November 22 for standard delivery or December 8 for rush shipping (recommended).

Black Friday

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 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.

Processing times

Our processing times vary according to the items ordered. For in-stock and ready to ship items, we ship within 24 hours (excluding weekends and holidays), leading up until our offices close for the week of December 20-27. 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. 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. Please allow at least 1 week for production time in addition to the shipping time for your order. Our offices will be closed the week of December 20-27, so there will be no production 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, 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 (and often the same-day!)

Thank you for your patience and understanding with these delivery notes, and we wish you all the warmest holiday season!
