First of all: We are operational, and we are so very grateful to you, our aava community, that we can even say this. What does that mean for you? We still fulfill every single order that is placed in our store.
However, our service has not been left untouched by Covid-19’s effects on the global postal system, which is why we are experiencing shipping delays on order, especially on international orders. Here you can find the average delivery delays based on your location:
Shipping delays on orders from the US
Since our warehouse in Houston, Texas is still fully operational and USPS experiences only slightly elevated shipping times of 1-2 additional business days, we are still able to deliver your new swimsuit to your doorstep within 3-6 business days.
Shipping delays on international orders
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 the global postal system is facing extended transit times and we are especially seeing the effect of this for orders shipping to our customers in Europe. Currently, there are rather limited transport carriers operating between the USA and EU, and we’ve been informed by USPS that these delays can be anywhere from 1 - 5 weeks depending on where the item is destined.
Additionally, some countries temporarily hold off on international mail acceptance completely, because of their reduced postal service and in an effort to protect their postal workers. If you live in one of the listed countries below, your order will be put on hold and shipped out as soon the restrictions have been lifted by your country. If you ordered some time ago it is likely that your order has already shipped and will be returned back to us.
