You should receive an email once your order is sent in the mail or ready for pick-up at the office. We usually send them out within 2 weeks of receiving an order.

If there is more demand that we can supply, we will maintain a wait-list until a binder or gaff of your needed size is in.

Wear and care information has been gathered from Venus Envy (where our binder/gaff purchases are made), and the Callen Lorde Community Health Center.
