Never shopping here again
In their infinite "Wisdom" to save the world, the hypocrites use pleather. The process itself is highly toxic to the ozone, but also smells like the contents of the rubbish bags used. I had to air my new jacket out for days and ended up needing to rub baking soda on it. Still smells like crap, its still way too big despite ordering a smaller size and I'm extremely dirty on the fact I forked out decent money for a jacket that I thought was leather only to be conned into buying a cheap, gross smelling jacket because of a bunch of useless white un...i students crying when leather is still readily available as a by product of the meat industry and is still more sustainable than plastic leather. Yes, using leather means less wastage and less toxic emissions, for the idiots at head office who's stupidity is genuinely offensive. Cows die for meat everyday, just use their skin too so their carcases don't go to waste and people aren't forced to wear something that smells like a dead fish just because y'all lie and say fake leather is good. Maybe just don't sell fake leather products at all. That would be more sustainable than sending toxic gases up into the earth's atmosphere and pouring acid rain down on to your sweat shop employees. Because then there's the scary cheap stuff that claims to be sustainable and ethical but should cost more than $4 to make let alone sell, so ethical workplaces and employees are also a lie. Cotton is a waste of water so sustainable cotton is also out, use hemp instead. The biggest joke is though that no one cares or bothers to notice despite shopping here because "They help people and are environmentally friendly" and actually think in buying the totes or water or whatever other "Charity items", they're doing something good. The packaging alone is a testament to what a crap company this is. Don't kid yourselves into thinking you're a better person for shopping at a place that uses slave labour and don't know the meaning of sustainable. You may as well shop at kmart, at least their fake leather doesn't smell disgusting when its meant to be brand new. Don't respond with how to care for my product or some other regurgitated human resource answer either, just sit in your shame and crap off silently.
Products not as good anymore
I used to buy a lot from Cotton on a few years ago but their range has changed and they don't stock anything like I used to get. eg t-shirts don't have the variety of logos etc. and the sizing is all big and baggy. What used to be Adele trackpant is limited if at all. No more nice cargo pants and the longer style silky t-shirt has been replaced by the 'Kris' which hasn't got the longer back. It's all rubbish. I used to spend a lot of money in Cotton on but they've gone downhill badly. Maybe since COVID not getting the range from China? Won't be buying there again as I'm not a teenager and it looks like that's all they're catering for now.
Don't pay for express shipping
I have made two orders with Cotton On online and both times I paid for express shipping just for it to be really late. My latest order should have been delivered today but I didn't even get a shipping confirmation or tracking number. After contacting their live chat, someone was able to give me a tracking number but it hasnt even been loaded into Couriers Please system so who knows where it is or when it will arrive. I'm pretty annoyed with myself for ordering again online, hopefully I won't forget next time I have the urge to buy cheap bad quality clothes.
Good but some flaws
Cotton on sells some really nice things, but it’s a little messy eg. My pleated skirt had some loose thread, and the shipping takes a while.
What happened oh cotton on!
I’m not sure what’s happened but Cotton On’s quality over the past few years has become absolute trash! Everything I buy now fluffs after one wash and looks hammered and becomes unwearable out of the house.
Material looses its shape, fades and always always fluffs from adults down to kids and baby clothes.
Cotton on was my go to store for everything. I have items still in good condition that I purchased 15 years ago. I’ve been shopping there for around 18 years and quality has deteriorated completely.
Such a shame because I love their style..., so simple. They have really nice looking pieces which sucks when the whole piece changes after a few wears. Also don’t be deceived some items look completely different on, a lot of the time the way the model is standing and posing online shows it a certain way but on the sleeves would be way too short or the crotch a lot lower then what’s showing. I spent over $300 in one order to find that I literally hate 95% of that order.
"couriers please" needs to go.
I ordered two packages one arrived today the other not here yet. The one I just received came as I was in the living room so I could see it being delivered. This man walked not even up the steps of my house and threw my package at my door. I understand it is just clothes but that is horrible... they also say my second package isn meant to arrive AND I PAY EXPRESS SHIPPING but when I search it on "couriers please" website its changed for in another 3 days. Seriously, update your customers on these things.
Cheap expensive clothing
Clothing is not worth the price . Sick of dresses that shrink in the wash and thin material. I hate being pressured into buying the $2 tissues. The change rooms in all cotton on stores are disgusting. Covered in clothes tags and dust
Not what I expected very different to the website I will never be buying anything from cotton on again online unless I see it yuck worst online shopping don’t buy online from here
Express shipping makes NO DIFFERENCE
I payed extra for express shipping and still did not arrive till the following week. I ordered on a Monday, and it was supposed to take 2-3 business days, but instead took 6 business days. Extremely disappointed.
The clothing in this store are reasonable for their price. The quality is usually a bit under decent but it also depends on the item you are buying. I was satisfied with level of the store but I see improvement/
Lack of dressing rooms
Hi l came in today 1st December and waited 15 minutes before a worker opened up 3 out of 4 change rooms. Only one was open in a busy store. I will think twice before coming again. Think of your customers as we dont want to wait long to try clothes on . Its a disincentive to come again
Decent prices but falls flat for body diversity
(regarding Womens range)
* The product pages don't have enough garment info - some have none at all.
* The sizing charts need a LOT of work.
* There absolutely needs to be some kind of customer feedback option - reviews are crucial when shopping online especially when it comes to clothing, to know what sizing suits what body types.
* Shipping takes 3-5 business days, free over $60.
* Returns are FREE, which is something.
* There are frequent sales, which is awesome.
* Clothing quality is CHEAP - they've definitely compromised quantity ove...
Worst quality clothes
I bought more then 300 aud from their store and quality cake really worst..can’t wear more than a day..started bubbling in just 1 hour after wearing.. think 100times before u shop with cotton on stores in Australia.
Great if you can get it on sale
The quality of cotton on clothing is poor for the listed RRP, however, if you manage to get items on sale, great deal! e.g. $10 jeans, $3 tops, $5 shoes
Questions & Answers
Still haven't received the tracking number after purchase it and been almost 3 weeks now , very disappointed!!!!!!
Online shopping with Cotton On is ok if u choose to pick up in shop. I am still wondering why Cotton On is still using country’s worst shipping company - Courier xxxxxx!
The driver never came to your home for delivery but they did update their online status as “attempt to deliver but not at home”! Also they said they left the card for me but they did not ! What a ridiculous service!!! I did give instruction to leave my order at my front door but they took my order back to their warehouse ‘
I am so frustrated to have Courier pls to deliver my order as I had few horrible experiences with them. This time, again, I really don’t know how long can I take my order back or it would never come ?
Cotton On Admin/Customer device: Please take all your customers review seriously and consider to change your courier partnership to boost your competitiveness !
No extend sizes available in the store. If I found one, you are lucky. That probably is the only one in Aus. Why are they producing it? Save for themselves to wear, not for sale?
