cute lingerie, but unfriendly staff

Really cute lingerie. High quality products, but low quality service. The sales ladies are really "cool". When I asked for help, the sales lady gave me a facial expression like "I don't want to help you but I have to". I asked her to check the bra fit, she looked at me for one second, saying "too big", and never came back to me. I was the only customer she had at that time. However, the lingerie is really cute and of high quality.

Definitely worth a Look-See for the Daring Guys out there!

These last two weeks, I have done the “Lingerie Sales Test”: I visit various lingerie stores, as a suit-wearing young Asian business professional. While looking for a little something to make my girlfriend feel like a million bucks, I check out how the service stacks up. Agent Provocateur was one of more fun experiences. It seems like a new shop, probably still under some sort of decorating stage. The goods are from the niche of the “Naughty Nurse,” that’s how I would describe the quirky plunging necklines and tight kinky outfits. The salepeople are in “Nurse”-style outfits yet is clearly an upscale store. The goods are far more first-rate than the local Village naugty store and can certainly be considered soft-touch fine lingerie. Although it did not suit my tastes, the staff was very welcoming to the guy population, including myself. Definitely worth a visit if you have “Medicinal” urges, haha. Please feel free to read my other reviews along my Uncovering-Undies search!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
