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.
Damaging to Young Women's self image
In an age we're we are trying to teach young women to live the way they are made, and that a"Barbie" body is not good. Cotton On is teaching them that if they are not a size 14 they are too big to wear fashion intended for today's youth.
Today I had to watch my young adult cry because she can't shop where her friends do.
Huge disappointment. Do not rely on their shipping or customer service.
I had an order that was "returned to sender" not by me but because Cotton On put the wrong label on it so AusPosyt could not deliver. They advised that they would reship this asap. They have changed their story a hundred times and apparently now my order is missing. It has been a MONTH of nothing. They haven't even tried to rectify the problem or compensate any of the time lost or trouble.
I would NOT recommend buying online with them.. I would suggest now to go with a trusted company.
Terrible manager at Oasis Shopping Centre Broadbeach
A young blonde woman, who very loudly claimed to be the manager there, was extremely rude and acted like everyone is under her, even the customers. Somebody needs to teach her manners and that customer comes first. She does not deserve the managing positiong as other employees were much more competent there than her. Also very fake and loud and calls all the customers no matter their age, ‘babe’. C’mon, some customers were middle aged. Very disrespectful.
- Cotton On
Beware of this company
I would not recommend anyone purchasing from Cotton On or their other clothing business Ceres Life. I tried to order a dress online.
When I filled in all my details, including my credit card, I chose not to have my credit card details saved for future purchases.
When I had given all my information, an error message came saying I needed to contact customer service. There is no phone number on the Ceres Life website and Cotton On do not answer their listed head office number (they just have a recorded message). So I had to contact them via “ch...
Staff at Watertown Perth outlet rude and offensive
This was my favourite store, always loved the online store and retail stores until one very rude and offensive girl with the blonde hair and tattoos at Perth Watertown had a go at me for returning items to the store. She was so offensive I almost had a panic attack in the store. I had done nothing wrong at all and did not deserve being spoken to in such a demoralising and abrupt manner. She also said I used a different bank card when I purchased the items online and refused to refund me. I later verified with online chat that it was the correct card. It is a shame this one girl has ruined my experience with this store when other staff have alway been so friendly and helpful.
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
What a rip off
I ordered a pair of pants lured by a 20% discount. I also added another sale item which wasn't included in the discount.
The pants were in stock. The order was placed.
The next day I get an email saying the pants were out of stock. The fact mask had magically gone back to full price and was a dollar more than shipping. I would have never ordered anything where the order was equal to shipping.
Out of pocket a lot for an add on sale.
They've refused to answer my email complaints. What a garbage company.
Ridiculous ethics of business
There membership is rubbish
Only 3 months for your points???
They force you to buy donation bags for $2
Why not have bags for 15,30,50c why force people to buy $2 bag donations????
Disposable trash rags
Sweat shop quality products, should be called disposable fasion; washed a few times it loses all quality, gets lint balls or small holes on one shirt of mine, trash clothing. Their acid wash t shirts are a lie, they dont look anything like the photos on the website.
Slooow postage, lies and exuses
I am not sure why i can order something on Amazon and have it here the next day yet Cotton On take forever to deliver something in the same city.
Trying to communicate with their staff leads to a barrage of automated emails followed by excuses about COVID delaying the post etc.
Its a shame, they are a good value for money shop but their online experience is dreadful as others have described.
Online order - took 29 days to arrive
My online order took 29 days to arrive even though I paid extra for express and I live in inner Sydney.
I purchased new clothes for summer and now that it took a month to arrive 1/3 of summer is already over so it's kind of disappointing.
There dispatch time is claimed to be 1-3 days but it's actually 1-3 weeks and they use one of the worst courier companies in the country who wouldn't know left from right on a good day.
Store staff double standards - won’t be shopping there again
I purchased 3 sports bras listed as 2 for $35. I needed 4 but the one I wanted was not in my size in store. I asked about the price for a single bra and was told that each one was $17.50 and able to be purchased singly or in multiples. Three days later I went in store again to check if the one I wanted was in yet. It was!
In checking out I was asked to pay $25 so mentioned that on my previous visit I was told that a single bra would still be $17.50. I hoped they would at least honour the right or wrong info I had been given. They wouldn’t. I ...

Questions & Answers
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?
