I just placed my first order, I´m very glad that they don´t have shipping costs (international ones can be so expensive!)

how´s the quality and fit? I´m a bit afraid of fit cause I´m used to us sizes... does a size 10 really equals an us medium? I was checking the charts and I´m between a size 8 and 10 but there´s no size 9

^ Well I'm a UK size 8-10 and when I was in the USA I bought size Small... US medium I would say is about UK size 12-14.

10 is definitely more M than S. Their sizing is pretty big.

I actually think their sizing runs small . . . I'm normally a US 2 or Small according to their size charts but I ordered a dress from them in UK6 which is the equivalent size and I couldn't even close it! I'm a UK8 as I've discovered It's more likely that I really am a US4/UK8 and the vanity sizing in the US has knocked me down to a US 2 on paper . . .

I've had so many hits and misses when it comes to their own lines' sizes. I own everything from a 6 to a 10.

I actually received it today and it is even more gorgeous in real life. I'm now rethinking my decision to hem it.
I'm such a freak . . . I fell so in love with this dress that I've been refreshing the link every day for a week hoping they would restock my size . . . and they did! I just bought it and I bought another dress from ASOS yesterday. it's evil!!!

They sent me an email saying that the tshirt I ordered is out of stock
but I had to order something so I ordered this dress and skirt, hope that there will be no stock problems
I´m addicted to the fact that they don´t have a shipping fee, I must buy stuff



I wanted this dress but I spent 5 more minutes browsing and by the time I went to the checkout it was out of stock

^ Love both the dress and skirt. Great pieces for summer .

And I hate when you go to check out and its already out of stock . Especially when its something you really really want.

Yay! I'm so glad you got the dress. You will love it! I'm waiting for the weather to warm up here before I wear it. But I've already worn it a few times around my house already .

^I´m actually thinking of pairing them with tights and wearing them in the fall, which is around the corner for me. It takes two weeks for the order to get to my city, I might get a chance to wear them while it´s still hot

Here's my order . . . I need to stop buying black :/ but it's just the easiest to wear to work with white and grey.



and I would have bought this in a heartbeat but they are sold out of my size!

CarolineRose, I love that long black dress, It's gorgeous! Too bad it's out of stock. Not that I would have somewhere to wear it though.

I received my order today, which was super fast (it took them just 5 days), they really made an improvement in delivery times.
I've ordered the Supertrash dress:

asos.com

It's a little too revealing for my liking, but it would look great whit black opaque tights and a blazer.

^That dress looks amazing on you! Way better than on the model for sure. If you think it's too revealing combine it with a cardigan or a chunky necklace, although I think it looks just perfect.
