Advantages: Great quality clothes, cheap prices, well laid out
Disadvantages: Some items may not be of quality in others opinions
I was looking for cheap websites to buy clothes from, as I've found recently that I've been unable to find decent clothes at certain points in shops when they are super focused on party seasons. As a student, my clothes spending tends to be quite minimal and I tend to shop around in places such as H&M for my clothes. On the suggestion of a friend, I was shown Boohoo who said that their clothes were quite similar and around the same price.
Boohoo's site has more of a focus on women's clothes as many of the sections have more clothes centred around them, however there is also a men's section which I think has been recently added. Getting around the website from even the homepage was very easy and I liked how well organised and laid out the website was.
Upon opening the homepage there is a variety of tabs
Aside from these main headlines, there is also more specific ones if you look hover above them for all the different styles of clothing in that category. However, Boohoo don't stop there, as when you click on one of the main headings and are taken to the page, they give you on the left hand side tickboxes for loads of different styles of clothes to find specifics. This was great for finding things if I wanted a particular item such as just a t-shirt or skirt, and stopped unnecessary time wasting trawling through the website.
While many websites may have really rubbish clearance sales, I was really happy to see that on Boohoo many great quality and looking items were actually available in the sale. Also, the prices of the general items around the website are of pretty good price of the quality that the items are of. When I have purchased from there, I have found the items to never experience any tearing or a lot of fading after quite a lot of use.
The postage for the items on the website is very reasonable compared to some other clothes websites I've purchased from, and they are very good at keeping to delivery dates as any time I have ordered something it comes when stated and never has been late. Also, the packaging it comes in has protected the clothes well and there has never been any problem with the packaging arriving torn.
Below are the prices for packaging of goods from the website:
UK Next Day - £5.99 / EUR 7.50 per order
UK Saturday - £6.99 / EUR 8.99 per order
UK Saver - £3.99 / EUR 4.99 per order
I have never had to return any of the items that I purchase from there, so I don't have too much to comment about them. However, from looking at their policy, it appears that you can have up to 14 days to return the items.
Overall, I definitely have to recommend Boohoo.com as a place to purchase clothes if you are looking for an affordable clothes website. Everything I have received from there has been of great quality for the prices its offered at and combined with great delivery costs and times, I give it 5 out of 5. Many of my friends use this website also, and they have had the same experience as I, so boohoo.com clearly are a reputable business.
Summary: A great website for those looking for affordable yet great quality clothes
