Super Slim Ankle Grazer Track Pants
I’m reviewing this product here because Cotton On make no provision for reviews on site- not even for members. Kind of speaks volumes, doesn’t it?
The trackie dacks are advertised as ankle grazers. Well, at 175cm I’m of average height- not especially tall- and I don’t call ending 8cm above my ankle “ankle grazing”. I call that “mid calf”. They’re not particularly slim fitting either- particularly on the lower leg- what there is of it.
I got these 1/2 price for round the house, otherwise they’d be going back.
If you intend to wear them out of the house and aren’t short- don’t buy them!

Quality has deteriorated over the years
I have been wearing Cotton on Active 7/8 tights for around 10 years.
Recently (last 2 years) the quality has decreased, as well as the sizing.
As a size 16-18 I used to wear the XL tights. They were thick, soft and stretchy. I recently bought an XL pair and couldn't fit into them, despite not putting on any weight and still fitting the old XL ones. So I bought both the 2XL and 3XL to see what they were like. The only difference in sizing was in the ankles (baggy on the 3XL). One pair of 2XL were bigger than the 3XL in the waist. The stitching ...
Cheap and cheerful but awful delivery
Great affordable clothing for kids however such an awful experience with delivery. Paid for express and still waiting after more than a week.
Contacted customer service who were going to email me a reply as they needed to contact couriers please. Still no reply and still no goods. So disappointing!!!
"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.
Express Shipping is anything BUT express.
I used to LOVE cotton on. Honestly, whenever I needed new clothes, stationary, active wear or undies they're always the first place I'd look. Its such a shame that the online store is so poorly handled, specifically the timing with which you receive an order. On several occasions now I've paid for express shipping & been given a delivery date only to have my order turn up well over a week later, whats the point in even offering express if you can't follow through on the promise of it being here sooner than if i hadn't paid any extra at all? I'v...e often gone into the store to try and avoid this but they NEVER seem to have the same stock in store or even have anything remotely similar to what I'm looking for & when you ask the staff for assistance, they look at you like you're speaking jibberish. The customer service team never seems to be overly enthusiastic about helping either, often talking to you like you were born yesterday. Not very helpful & leaves me feeling like it's time to find another cheap, generic & vaguely fashionable place to shop. Disappointing.
Garbage Thongs, Difficult Sandals, Order Mix Ups, and Where The Hell Do I Leave a Review?
I've only made two online orders with the Cotton:On website and both times my order was incomplete. The first time an item was simply missing, the second time it had been replaced with something I never even looked at. Oddly enough, both times the missing item was a Flow Writer pen. The item they sent instead in the second order was nail polish. When you look at the Returns and Exchanges information online it has a section about extra items being delivered, so apparently it's a common problem they can't seem to fix. Luckily, when I went to the ...Typo store to exchange it in Geelong I didn't have any issues. I have shopped in-store at Geelong's Typo three times and the staff in that store always seem to be in good moods, or are at least helpful. My second order (which arrived about four days ago) also included Sporty Stormy Thongs, which promptly tore within the first fifteen minutes I wore them. I was at the beach and apparently they aren't meant to get wet because in no time at all the fabric attached to the thong ripped on both shoes. I wasn't trying to walk through the water with them on or on loose sand while soaking wet, they just got wet from a wave lapping on shore. They felt good when I wore them, it wasn't a wrong size issue. I've had plenty of other fabric thongs throughout life (I can't wear plastic ones, I get blisters) and they all made it at least a year of regular use before breaking or fraying. I know these thongs were only $15, but I've had similarly priced ones that were better. This is shockingly poor craftsmanship. That order also included some Kim Combat sandals, which have two buckle locations. I didn't think about it at the time of ordering but once I went to put them on I realized it was very difficult to get them buckled as the buckles are on the very outer edge of the sandal, making it hard to reach. The holes are also very small, making it even more difficult. Once I have the shoes on they are comfortable, but it's an ordeal. Happily, the swimsuit I ordered has been great so there seems to be at least one clothing/fabric item that works as desired. I have seen a lot of other reviews on here and other places with people complaining about clothing products though. Sadly I didn't look online for reviews before using Cotton:On, otherwise I may have avoided some of the purchases I made. I will say that my shipping/delivery experience has not been terrible like a lot of other reviews. My two orders each arrived within 5 business days of purchase and the package was in good shape, only missing one item each instead of half the order like some others.
Hi all so I went in a week ago and bought some presents from my.son to give to me for Christmas. I bought a bag from there in within the first week of having it the bag broke. What do I do. Do I take it back an tell them or no point ? The bag cost me about $20 or so ?
Self Service, interrupting staff to confirm they didn’t have what I was wanting to buy
Walked into Cotton On first time in this store location. I was browsing for elastic cuff/waist cotton jogger style pants. I looked in the men’s section I looked around the store. I spent 15 mins sifting through the racks. I had to interrupt two staff members which neither approached or greeted me so far. I asked about the size and style of these particular pants to have confirmed that they were unavailable. Which was a shame because I really liked them. I would have purchased them regardless of the lack of service.
Ordered 2 jumpers and 2 packets of 2-pack BIYS TRUNKS, got 2 jumpers and only ONE packet of 2-pack GIRLS TRINKS. The local stores can’t help, customer service number is blocked because of COVID19, on 144 number in a queue which changes every minute and gets longer!!! Frustrating!!,

Perfect sizing, but terrible for the earth
The sizing and clothes themselves were perfect. The issue I had was with the amount of plastic used to wrap each individual item. Is Cotton On able to wrap several clothes in one singular piece of plastic before shipping it to the same address? It seemed unnecessary to create such a large amount of plastic rubbish for my one order :(
PRICES TOO HIGH
I used to buy in Melbourne but now i moved to Sydney and it seems like is so expensive. Also you buy tshirts for $25 and one week later is $5. It seems like you just need to wait what's left but it also means the overcharge is insane.
tacky jeans and wring sizing
i ordered 6 items of clothing online and only three were actually tolerable, both pairs of jeans were made of cheap material and didn't even fit right even tho I ordered them in my size, the pink shirt ordered came to me in brown and the shorts were way to loose around my waist even tho i ordered them in a size too small. don't think i will be shopping there again anytime soon.
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/
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...
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
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?
