Asos' new feature has pissed a lot of women off
Online retail giants Asos have released a new feature that has annoyed a lot of people, especially women customers.
The feature was meant to aid you in your choosing of size and to stop people sending items back so often because of ill-fitting items.
Basically, the site uses a customer's past purchase history to give an idea of what size you should be ordering, they also take into account whether you have returned an item because it didn't fit properly.
Now, you can also help the site suggest a size by evaluating past purchases on how well they fitted. Other things include giving information such as your height, weight, tummy and hip shape, bra size and age. All this can be used to find the perfect size for you.
Some have found the feature helpful, but most feel it is not for a computer to decide what size you are.
Fashion blogger Hannah Gale, who has 13,000 twitter followers wasn't impressed with the new feature:
I'm not keen on ASOS's new size thing on product pages. 'Your recommended size large isn't in stock'. WELL I'LL GET A MEDIUM THEN, LOSER.— Hannah Gale (@Hannahfgale) January 23, 2017
Stop trying to tell me what size I am, you don't know me 😂💁🏼— Hannah Gale (@Hannahfgale) January 23, 2017
Then her fans also jumped on board the hate train.
@Hannahfgale I think it's lame "for your height and weight this size is way too small" PISS OFF MATE that's my size 🙄— Grace (@graceandbraver) January 23, 2017
That size select feature on ASOS is making my self esteem just that much lower when it suggests that they don't have a size for me thanks— =^•^= (@1_Yuffiee_1) January 23, 2017
@Hannahfgale WELL MAYBE I'VE LOST WEIGHT SINCE THE LAST TIME I ORDERED WHICH OK WAS 5 DAYS AGO BUT STILL I COULD HAVE— Katy (@itskatywithay) January 23, 2017
But some did see some positive progress in the feature:
The new size recommender on @ASOS is pretty cool. Even if it's not perfect I appreciate them using their data on customer returns👌— Louise (@veilleuse) January 23, 2017
