Is ASOS True to Size?

For the perfect fit.

Last Updated on August 23, 2023

Ever find yourself wondering if ASOS is true to size? Then you’ve come to the right place. I’m as into online shopping as the next person, but sizing is one of the most challenging parts of buying online. It’s so frustrating when you can’t get the size right and the items you’ve ordered don’t fit you properly, or when you have to order three different sizes and spend too much money to work out which will fit. After receiving a few disappointing parcels because I couldn’t get the sizing right, I’ve said to myself that before hitting that ‘add to cart’ button, I need to do my research to avoid wasting time, effort, and, of course, money. 

One look at ASOS will make you feel like a kid in the candy store. Their summer dresses are both affordable and unique (and they often look way better when you get them IRL) and I’ve got a soft spot for their jeans, but finding the right size is imperative. ASOS actually suggests which size you should get based on your previous purchases, which is really helpful, but it’s still worth reading up about how their sizing fits as I’ve recently bought pieces in my usual size that were way too big.

Here, I’ll be sharing everything you need to know regarding their sizing. Next, read about ASOS’ best perfumes.

Is ASOS true to size?

Most of their customers say that ASOS’ sizing runs a bit bigger as compared to other retailers, and this has definitely been the case in my personal experience. On Reddit buyers share have been their experiences with the store’s sizing, and the majority agree that most of the time, it runs a little bigger.

If you are torn about whether to size up or based on your true size, you can check out ASOS’ sizing guide. The category is divided into women and men, with subcategories indicating a variety of garments so you can get the perfect fit. Let’s say you’re looking for dresses; the subcategory shows the UK size ranging from 4 to 18, with the bust, waist, and hip measurements in inches or centimeters alongside it.

What size do ASOS models wear?

The online fashion retailer now shows clothes on a variety of models of all shapes and sizes, so you can see how the garment will fit someone with a figure like yours. ASOS also indicates the model’s height and the size that she is wearing, as seen on the app or website. This varies, so it’s best to check each specific item.

Do ASOS coats run big or small?

The majority of ASOS clothing comes a bit bigger and the same goes for coats. However, if you want to make sure, instead of just basing your order on sizes 4 to 18, why not use the sizing guide and measure your bust, waist, and hip area to assess whether you want a slick fit or an oversized coat?
