11 things all ASOS shoppers know to be true

Making an ASOS order = a rollercoaster of emotions. Really.

It may be the key to owning many beautiful things, but it’s not without its faults, either. Here are 11 things all ASOS shoppers know to be true.

Browsing, saving things for later, dreaming of future outfits – all very enjoyable pursuits.

On a casual browse, you will discover 5+ items that should never be worn, ever

In fact, there’s an entire Twitter account devoted to pointing out ASOS oddities.

And one of our own recent favourites:

Will you ever buy that €350 jacket? No. But stick it in Saved Items, where you can at least look at it.

Save my credit card and delivery address? Don’t mind if I do. Input my security code? No bother! Now watch as I make €100 disappear.

The excitement of receiving your ASOS parcel is unparallelled…

…But so is the disappointment of the discovering that none of the clothes fit

Nowt more spirit-crushing.

It’s nearly always destroyed in your enthusiasm for opening it.

But despite all this, you’ll still be back browsing in a week’s time


“Sure returning all those clothes is like saving money. It’d be rude not to spend it again.”
