Used to love cotton on
Cotton on used to be a good cost effective brand, had fairly good quality staples - followed some trends but didn't get too carried away. Their jeans were always questionable fit/wear but overall I loved shopping there. Now it's following Gen Z fashion trends so hard, there is no mix of basics and trends anymore and the price has risen significantly. $70ish dollars for PJ pants! Calm down Cotton On you're not Peter Alexander, you should stay in your lane. Even cotton on body/active used to be amazing and now it's ugly and expensive yet no better quality. I hope it changes soon because I miss shopping there.
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.
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.
"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.
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.
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!
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 ?
So easy, so reliable!
Always love going online for one thing and checking out with many. It's estimate delivery is accurate, well packaged and great sizes and variety of choice. One of my fave places to shop!
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!!,
Took about a week to receive the clothing and love everything I got. All pieces were as advertised and will buy more in the future. Just wait for a sale and it's worth it

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.
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/
Love love love
The stores are well lated out and easy to navigate making it simple to find what you need. Cotton on is working on their size inclusivity which is great fr everyone. The quality of the products is made to last at an affordable price :)
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?
