DRESS QUESTION:: ASOS??

...ever bought from the company called ASOS?  I read some reviews online about bad customer service and shipping horrors and so far...I'm really disheartened.  I found a gorgeous dress for our intimate (parents, siblings only, and our kids of course) and I would be crushed if it didn't come in time or if I had to return it. Here's the dress I reeaally want:

Haven't decided on which color as I'm fair skinned, naturally dark auburn with (natural mind you) blond highlights, and dark brown/almost black eyes. You guys can chime on that too! I wish I could dye the white dress a creamy color!

That is a very cute dress! I like the first color :-)


I know some girls here have purchased dresses from Asos. Maybe they can give you a different perspective!

I know there are a few girls who have ordered from Asos.  I love their stuff and always want to order things, but haven't had the opportunity to.  My only concern with them is that they're a UK company and I've heard their sizes are a little off from ours.  :)  HTH

I got my bachelorette party dress from there and I LOVED it.  But I didn't really have to return anything to them.  I've ordered a few things from them before though and they have some great stuff.  


BTW, if you're worried about UK sizing, there is a tab you can click in the top right corner of the site to convert to US sizing.  The sizes I received were pretty much spot on.

I've purchased a hand full of things from ASOS.com. the sizing is a little off, they tend to run smaller than US size. I've returned stuff too without any problems!

I've purchased a lot of stuff from there and the sizing honestly depends. Sometimes I'll get a dress too small or just right but the returns are super easy. I haven't had a problem yet

ok that gives me such a sigh of relief ladies!  Thanks so much! Question - how fast did you receive your items on standard delivery?  Was it faster than what they said it would be?

I have always loved their dresses and have wondered about the ordering process and returns.  Has anyone had any issue with the quality of their dresses?

I order loads from ASOS, I order them rush delivery cos I'm always in a rush!! They have always come in when they are supposed to, never before. Returns are easy as obviously sometimes when you order something online it doesn't flatter you or the colour doesn't quite match the photo. They are definately legit! UK sizes would be a tad different to US FYI UK 8 = US 4 10=6 12=8 etc. They do have good size charts-because they stock loads of different suppliers the measurements are different with different manufacturers so always check them out. I've always found them pretty true to size in comparison to UK highstreet shops.

- jocemae, some things have looked a bit poor quality, but there is such a wide selection of brands that you just can't generalise on the quality- obv something polyester or plastic they sell is going to look cheaper than cotton or leather! I've sent one dress back cos it wasn't nice but more that the colour wasn't quite right, but it was REALLY cheap so I could hardly be surprised.

I've ordered heaps of stuff from ASOS! Its definately legit :o) I think it started as a UK website but now ships internationally too.  Like vintageb says - if the price is too good to be true its probably because the quality is poor but there are so many branded clothes on there too. Just avoid the crazily priced stuff (I ordered a top form them once and the quality was poor so I returned it). Happy shopping!
