Agent Provocateur is a high-end British lingerie company. They are probably best well known for their lingerie, nightwear, and swimwear, though they also carry a wide range of other similar products as well.

In this review, we are going to discuss the Agent Provocateur brand and decide whether or not they deserve our seal of approval.

Do they hit the mark where quality is concerned? Do they offer enough variation in their products? Do they offer real value to customers in the lingerie market? These are the types of questions that we are going to attempt to answer in this Agent Provocateur review… so let’s get started.


Website

Our initial impression of this company was that they were NOT just another lingerie retailer. Three things become very apparent very quickly when we took a look at their website.

  1. Their products are high-end where quality is concerned. You can expect to get real, high-quality products from this company. No imitations, no gimmicks, and no excuses. If quality is what you are looking for, then there is no doubt that Agent Provocateur delivers.
  2. This brand also delivers exceptional style. Their fashion is very British, and they describe their products as “Provocative, but always leaving something to the imagination.” If you love fashion and want to wear something that you can’t find outside of a Boutique, then this website is probably going to appeal to you.
  3. Don’t expect to find cheap products on Agent Provocateur. We are not saying that they are overpriced, but we are saying that they are a name-brand and that they cater to customers who are looking to spend a bit of money on high quality, fashionable lingerie. If you were hoping to find super-cheap bras or panties, then this lingerie retailer is probably not for you. If you are looking for impeccable fashion and top-of-the-line products, then you will probably come to love Agent Provocateur.

Product Choice/Selection

This brand offers an incredible lineup of products. Their main categories include a “New In” section, an “SS 2014” section, and a “Soiree” section, as well as categories like “Lingerie”, “Bridal”, “Nightwear”, “Swimwear”, “Accessories”, and more. They also offer a wide range of different lines of products with different themes and looks. If you are shopping for lingerie and are in need of something fashionable, then odds are very good that you are going to find it here.

Ease of UseCompanyContact InformationSupport
The website was extremely intuitive and easy to use. Shopping is easy, and finding links to get you where you want to go is simple.
Unfortunately, Agent Provocateur doesn’t give you a ton of information about their company on their website.

They do offer a philosophy section that gives a bit of information about the brand. They also host a blog, a Twitter, a Facebook Page, a Youtube channel, and a Pinterest board.

Agent Provocateur offers a few different ways to make contact with them. Firstly, they offer an email contact form on their website… though they also offer a phone number that customers can use to get in touch with them if email is not their preferred method of communication.
The phone lines at AP are open Monday through Friday from 10am to 8pm GMT (5am – 3pm EST). They are closed on Sundays. By all accounts, Agent Provocateur seems to do a very good job of being available to their customers for things like questions, concerns, complaints, etc. Most users seem to agree that doing business with this company is easy and straightforward.

Company’s History

This company was formed back in 1994 by Joe Corre and Serena Rees. It was around this time that they opened their first boutique, which was located in Soho, London. Since their foundation, AP has gone on to become one of the most globally-recognized lingerie brands in the world.


Product Prices

Warranties and Product Guarantees

Shipping

AP offers several different shipping options. In fact, one very refreshing thing that we found on their website was a collection of detailed prices for not only shipping costs to the UK and the US, but also for shipping costs to Europe, Australia, Asia, Canada, and the rest of the world. Calculating shipping on this website before placing your order is extremely easy!


Loyalty Programs

As far as we could tell, this company did not offer a loyalty program on their website.
