We've always been fans of ASOS for just how easy it is (dangerouslyso for our bank balances), to shop all of our favourite brands on one site.
And now the e-tailer is set to make online shopping eveneasier by suggesting the size you should buy – aiming to remove any guess workand ill-fitting buys.
ASOS is now recommending sizes based on your previous purchases
The new feature works by looking at your purchase historyand taking into account the sizes you have previously bought, along with anyitems you've returned because they didn't fit properly.
You can also add in measurements such as your height,weight, bra size, plus waist and hip size to identify which size you should bewearing.
The recommendation shows on the product page below the boxwhere you select your size. It features a link that will tell you the sizes youhave typically bought in the past, along with the option to make your resultsmore accurate by evaluating the fit of your previous purchases.
While the concept seems fairly straightforward, it hasn'treceived a completely positive reaction from shoppers, some of whom havepointed out that their size may have fluctuated since they last made apurchase, or their body shape doesn't conform to traditional sizing.
"That size select feature on ASOS is making my self-esteemjust that much lower when it suggests that they don't have a size for methanks," one shopper tweeted.
Another added: "Why have ASOS started recommending whatsize I should get in an item, I am not okay with this."
However others love the new feature. "The newrecommended size feature on @ASOS is so clever! Off to make an order of thingsI definitely don't need."
