    I realise this isn't life or death but I am panicking a bit here.

    My boyfriend bought me a really gorgeous dress from America (online) just tonight. He bought it for me to wear for my 30th birthday in 2 weeks. They are shipping it with International Priority Mail which is meant to be quite quick but someone mentioned customs in the UK sometimes hold packages? Does this apply to clothes and how long do they hold them for?

    I'm pretty worried because he saved up for quite a while to buy me something really special and it will be terrible if it doesn't come. We have no money to buy something else and I've lost a lot of weight so can't even slip into something I already have! Big party planned, any advice welcome!
