You'll find directions on the care tags sewn into each piece of your lingerie. We also include an instructional leaflet with all of our lingerie sets to make it easy for you to clean them properly. We do recommend dry cleaning for larger items like silk robes and lounge wear, though.
For bras and panties, you may hand wash them with a specially-formulated silk or delicates wash: Simply soak in cool soapy water for a few minutes and gently rinse. Then roll your items up into a towel to press out the excess moisture, and hang or lay flat to dry. Do not put your delicates in the washing machine or tumble dryer.
On the blog, we also have a complete list of hand washing tips and tricks.
If you have any further questions, please contact us. Note that we are not medical professionals and cannot advise you on health or safety questions. If you have concerns about how a corset might interact with your body or a medical condition, consult your doctor.
We do our best to ensure that our customers love our products, but if you do need to make a return, we’re happy to help. Just email us directly and we’ll take you through the process. We cannot refund any returns that arrive back at our office without written consent. For more details, please see our shipping and return policies page.
Sizing and fit
Our sizing is based on body measurements. The easiest way to determine your size is to use a tape measure and compare the numbers to our size chart. You can also use your dress size to determine your sizing. Please be aware that different brands use different size charts, so you may not wear the same size in Angela Friedman lingerie as you do from your local bra shop.
Many of our items are made to order, so to avoid unnecessary returns, please contact us with your fitting questions before placing your order, and we'll respond within 24 hours. Please do not return your items without emailing us first. (More information on returns.)
We have a detailed blog post on how to choose your corset size. Please read this guide before contacting us with your question, as we've probably already answered it.
Note that our corsets are sold by the waist measurement of the corset, not your waist measurement. Our corsets should be up to 4" smaller than your natural waist for beginners or up to 6" smaller for more experienced corset wearers. All corsets should be worn with a 1-2" gap at the back.
Our overbust style corsets are best suited for a B or C cup size. (D cups will generally fit as well, but you'll get an extra push-up effect.) For larger cup sizes, you may want to choose an underbust style corset and pair it with a bra.
Yes! We often make custom pieces to suit individual clients' needs. Maybe you fall in between sizes, wear a plus size, or need to accommodate a pregnant tummy... or maybe you just want a slip that's a few inches longer or a robe with shorter sleeves than pictured. No matter the reason, you can learn more about our bespoke options on the blog, or use our contact form to send your inquiry.
We're here to help! If you aren't sure what size to buy, you can contact us for specific advice, and we'll respond within 24 hours. (Please include as much sizing information as you can - you might need to do some snooping or ask a friend of the gift recipient!)
You can also visit our extensive and detailed Lingerie Gift Guide. There you'll find useful tips on how to choose the perfect size, style, and more.
We automatically do not include price tags inside the wrapped packaging for easy gifting. However, we are required by law to list the items' values on exterior customs forms for international orders.
Our offices are located in London, England, but we gladly ship lingerie worldwide. Shipping costs will vary based on your location, and these costs are added at checkout. We also offer rush services for some regions, if you're in a hurry. For more information on shipping terms and estimated timing, see our shipping page.
The displayed prices only include taxes for UK residents (20% VAT.) For customers outside the United Kingdom, we do not charge any taxes, but your local government may levy import duty or customs fees, which are solely your responsibility. If you're unsure about what fees you may owe, please contact your local authority prior to ordering.
Order processing generally takes 2-4 days, with some made-to-order pieces taking 1-2 weeks of production time, depending on order volume. If you're in a hurry, choose from our in-stock and ready-to-ship selections, which all ship within 24 hours.
Delivery within the UK takes 1-3 days, to the USA or Europe takes 1-2 weeks, and further locations can take up to 4 weeks. Tracking will be provided at the time of shipment, and we will always inform you if there are any anticipated delays.
Yes, we offer express shipping options for orders to the USA (2-4 days), Europe (2-3 days), and within the UK (next day). For other destinations, please ask about rush options before checkout. Note that rush shipping estimates do not include processing times.
Rush processing: If your item is in stock, we will ship it within 24 hours. But if your item is made to order, it may not be possible to rush the production (cutting and sewing) aspect. This depends on the time of year, how many items are ahead of yours in the order queue, etc. If you're in a hurry, the best thing you can do is to contact us with your specific needs.
If you need something right now, we also have gift cards! These are perfect in case of a lingerie emergency - you'll receive it in your email within 24 hours, often sooner.
Our items are shipped in plain, unbranded packaging for your discretion. We use recyclable cardboard boxes and plain poly envelopes. The "from" line will read "Angela Friedman" but that is the only identifying information, aside from customs forms where applicable.
For international packets, we're required by law to accurately inventory all items inside. The customs form will list something like "ladies' clothing: silk robe" and include the retail value of the items inside. Although we do not include price tags inside the wrapped packaging, we're required to put this information on customs forms for international orders.
In short? We're not going to have a sale. We don't believe in artificially inflating prices in order to have big sales later, like most other retailers do. Instead, we believe in prices that honestly reflect the value of the time, energy, and materials that go into each design.
One of our core values is 100% ethical manufacturing. Creating clothing by hand in the UK is much more costly than mass-production overseas, so our pricing may be higher than that of larger brands. But we're confident that once you try our luxury silk lingerie, you'll be convinced!
