Boux Avenue Review
Boux Avenue is a relatively new UK based lingerie company.
They offer a wide range of different types of products both online and at their physical store locations (they have 21 stores spread out across the UK), sporting items in categories ranging from lingerie, to nightwear, to swimwear, to even bridal and gifts & beauty.
They also offer gift wrapping, gift cards, and a range of special prices and deals.
Our first impression of the Boux Avenue website was good. If you are shopping for lingerie, then you will find most of the basics here. You will also find things like swimwear, nightwear, accessories, etc. The site is easy to navigate and makes finding a physical store location relatively easy. The color scheme is a somewhat bold black and white with splashes of color, and the overall layout is similar to what you would expect from an online retailer.
One thing that we noticed right away was that the prices on Boux Avenue were very affordable. If you are looking for lingerie, sleepwear, or swimwear that is stylish and inexpensive, then odds are good that this site will get your attention right away. We also liked how the opening page gave us a clean, direct route to the different categories. You would think that offering such a direct route to what customers are looking for would be commonplace, though there are a lot of businesses out there that don’t always do it very well.
We were also surprised to see some helpful videos placed throughout the site to add to the shopping experience. In the Bra category, for example, was a handy video on how to measure for a bra fitting.
Product choice and selection on Boux Avenue is pretty good. When you click on one category, you are quickly directed to a page where there are multiple sub-categories to choose from. This enables the user of the website to find exactly what they are looking for without having to browse through page after page of products, and is definitely an upside.
As for the sheer number of products, there is definitely no reason why someone shopping for lingerie should have a problem finding what they are looking for on this website. Boux Avenue carries a truly impressive lineup.
Interestingly, the name ‘Boux’ was said to be inspired by a chance meeting with a dazzling French girl named just that. Of course, the name by itself was not enough to convey the entire concept, so the term ‘avenue’, which was inspired by New York City, was added later to complete the name.
Prices on this website are actually very reasonable. Here are some examples of what you can expect to pay for some of their products.
A Georgia balconette bra sells for £26
A matching thong for this bra is £10
A Chloe contrast lace plunge bra sells for £24
A Tamsin lace babydoll with matching briefs sells for £40
A Puerto Rico frill bikini top sells for £24
Matching briefs for this top sell for £1
As you can see, the prices are actually very reasonable. If you are on a bit of a budget and want to get something that looks nice without having to dip into your bank account for a high-fashion brand, then Boux Avenue is definitely a store that you should consider.
Warranties and Product Guarantees
Boux Avenue actually offers a full refund or exchange for products within the first 28 days, though due to some hygiene concerns there are some items excluded from this guarantee. Hosiery, for example, is a category of products that they will not accept returns on. They also ask that any products returned be unworn, with the receipt, and with the original packaging.
Boux Avenue offers a free standard UK delivery option on orders totaling over £30. They also offer ‘speedy next working day delivery’ for only £5. They do not currently have an international delivery service, though they do encourage international customers to contact their customer service team so that they can figure out how to best accommodate orders made from outside of the UK.
As far as we could tell from the official company website, there is currently no loyalty program offered by Boux Avenue for online customers.
