Way to expensive all of a sudden
I use to make big 3-$400 online shops at a time and get tons of clothes.
Now the prices are ridiculous!! $50–$80 for a plain jumper?! No thanks, and the stitching just falls apart.
The styles are out there (which I get is in atm) or horrible materials that don’t breathe and I can’t wear due to health issues. There are a few good basics. But even they are $30 now when they use to be $10.
I’m so upset I won’t be shopping here anymore to buy new boxes of clothes for me and my daughter every season like we use to is not affordable at all, sad tha...
I had been using CottonOn for years now and enjoyed there wide range for affordable prices but the last couple of orders I've been disappointed.
Clothing has had holes along with a tear and most clothing looking unfinished as there's string hanging off in most sections.
Cottoned On, to Cotton On
Always attracted to C.O's value driven ethos. Clean, Green and Natural. So was very Disappointed recently to see the alcohol ridden slogans on men's Tshirts. This Nation has a significant alcohol problem, with our young men and more recently young women. Expected more. A real downer.
I have ordered three times in past few months both baby clothes and 6 year olds clothes. Navigating online store was easy, decent selection, slightly higher prices but it meets the quality of products and delivery was fast, inside a working week within Sydney metro during lockdown. Only complaint would be bad quality Goonies Boys Shirt, seems to be original merch, but the cotton pattern has twisted in the torso section, in comparison with Spiderman Black glow in the dark shirt which is superb quality.

Express shipping isn't really express...
I ordered and received my order confirmation on the 5th Oct (8 days ago) and still haven't received any updates on my order since? I contacted them through the 'live chat' function twice but the first time they said it was dispatched and I would receive a shipping update within 48 hours ... more than 48 hours later and I'm yet to receive one. So I've contacted them again through live chat and this time they said my order was still being processed? But they didn't even ask for my order number which they did last time. Very confused but I really hope I receive a shipping update eventually... I paid $100 to be ghosted by a company lol. Hopefully they're just really busy...
Don't order Express. They give you an estimate and yes, it says that it'll be 'approximately' delivered within 5 days of when you ordered it but my tracking said an extra week. Don't pay the extra for Express. Absolute waste and where the crap is the $2 going? To the so called charity they say to donate to (when you're in store)? SMH. Waste. Go spend the $2 towards your $5 coffee at the local cafe instead!

Where is my order? Order just delivered
Ordered 24 August for birthday present. Said delivery 1 sept. Today 19 September. Still nothing! Received 2 messages saying it’s ‘coming today’. Doesn’t arrive. Phones xomoany twice. Get nowhere. Disappointing.
Order just delivered today!!
Great products but very wasteful
Cotton On products have a great range of style and sizes that are affordable and appealing. I’m petite and their smaller sizes and range are a great fit.
Due to lockdown, I recently made a large purchase through the online store. When I received them, the products themselves looked great, but I was disappointed by the amount of waste. Each item came individually packaged with a plastic bag and each underwear it’s own plastic hanger. Ok, a few of the plastic bags are made from 90% recycled plastic, which is something, but I don’t see the neces...sity. Additionally, soft plastics can only be recycled if it is taken to the appropriate REDcycle bins. I can’t imagine a lot of people would be bothered or live close to these bins. The company’s attempt of trying to be environmentally conscious is counterintuitive when they are contributing to more waste with the plastic hangers, which are not recyclable, and again, not necessary. This is really concerning to me, because I can’t imagine how much waste each retail store is creating when the clothing is shipped like this to them from the manufacturers and warehouses. I would have preferred it if they just packaged all my items as is in the cardboard box that they came in anyway. Cotton On has a long way to go in reducing their environmental impact.

Love the clothes.. but the sizing?!!
I’m a size small or xs and both have been too small for me so chose their “medium” - fit perfectly for their activewear but got some other pants and the medium wouldn’t even stay on me it was so big. This inconsistency is shocking
Delivery so slow compared to other retailers. Don't bother paying for express!
Shopping easy and range good. But delivery during pandemic is terrible. Ordered from Cotton On, Myer, Lovista and JBHiFi all on same day. Express postage on all orders. 5 days later and cotton on haven't even dispatched yet, the only way to contact is via online chat. All other parcels were received within 3 days.
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!!!
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.
Several brands under one umbrella; I usually find something cute
THE GOOD: Cotton On allows you to shop their multiple brands on the one website. You can browse Supre, Typo, Rubi, Factorie, Cotton On, etc., all at once. Cotton On (and their other brands) are pretty good at staying on trend when it comes to styles, cuts, and colours. I find cute things on the site regularly and just return things that don't suit. Customer service has always been good and I have never had a problem. Cute but simple/not expensive-looking accessories. Brasilano underwear is EXCELLENT; so comfy and flattering and make your butt l...ook great. (I wish they came in white). Great microfibre fabric on these. Generally, some creative use of fabrics (for example, they've carried some really cute stretch-velvet tops and dresses). ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT: Some of the fabrics could be improved (for example, tops and dresses don't always wash well depending on the fabric blend and weight). Some are see-through in lighter colours or not flattering for curves. (For example, light-coloured dresses will frequently show panty lines). Cotton On jeans are too tricky for me so I don't buy these because I just don't feel confident enough that the fit will work. It can be tricky for me to determine what will work for my body online but I still always find some things that do. I think Cotton On could also carry more thick, stretchy, bodycon styles (not short, though!) and cute jackets. Anything that is very soft, cozy, thick, or stretchy would be a hit. I always keep an eye on Cotton On for decent basics as well as trendy pieces and knickers. Not everything ends up working for me but I pick and choose styles and never have a problem with returns. If fabrics could be improved a bit I would be a very happy customer. (I wonder if they would consider adding a premium line...?) Also, if they'd consider carrying more fitted and soft styles, velvet, suedette, tie-waist styles, etc. because I always go for these. Also, more guidelines for purchasing denim online and consistent sizing and stretch for this category. More stretch and fitted styles in thicker fabrics (I would be willing to pay a bit more) :) Your current colour range is very nice but I'd always love it if you could add more maroon, camel, beige, because these are my favourite colours. Thank you, Cotton On!
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?
