ASOS

ASOS is the mother of all online clothes shopping.  I have spent many hours adding countless asos clothing items to my cart knowing I will never actually purchase them… Stop your judgment right there; I’m sure you’ve done it too.

This UK website has the biggest variety of clothing you will ever see. According to my calculations if you were to look at every item of clothing on the site, it would take you 2.3 weeks. Okay so maybe that’s an exaggeration but you get the idea.

ASOS has over 13.6 million unique visitors a month from 160 different countries. So the variety is necessary. They have won numerous business awards including E-tailer of the year four times since it’s launch in 2000.

While their variety is great their sales are even better. Hundreds of clothing items are on sale everyday for up to 70% off. I have purchased many dresses for under $25 that look as though they are worth $100+.

Another perk is the free delivery. ASOS recently launched an Australian site, which means express post is $10 and standard delivery is free. This new site is much easier to navigate and the best part is that you don’t have to convert the prices back to Aussie dollars, now that was a pain.

Standard delivery really is snail mail. ASOS claims it will deliver your item within 6-12 days. You really do need to cater for the latter. Even with express delivery it can still take up to 7 days, so if you need that dress by the weekend I sure hope the gods are on your side.

While variety is good, sometimes the site becomes overwhelming with hundreds of pages of clothes becoming boring after a while. I wish I could choose the refine settings to only show ‘clothes that I would actually wear and can afford’. Some of them I wouldn’t let my grandma wear to bed.

ASOS has clothes for men and kids as well as the ‘petite’, ‘curvy’ and pregnant.  Unfortunately they are yet to cater for a petite curvy pregnant lady but at least they try.

Frequent shopper Taylah has been using the ASOS site for 5 years.

“I would never consider shopping online elsewhere. The pricing is reasonable and their customer service is great. They’re everything an online shop needs-Love ‘em!”

Alice has ordered from ASOS twice and has had a pretty good run.

“The only problem I’ve had is that the colours can be slightly different in real life. A pale orange top I ordered turned out to be bright orange. But overall I am happy with ASOS”.
