Easy to use clothing website with quick delivery times to Ireland at cost of stg£7.95.

I came across this website a week or so ago. I had been in the Coast section of Brown Thomas in Cork, looking for something a bit different and special to wear for the upcoming anniversay. I had seen a skirt I liked but it was too big and they didn’t have another one in stock. Rather than go through the rigmarole of getting the shop assistant to try and order the correct size and then me having to make a return trip into Cork, I decided to go online and see if I could order it there.

I found the coast website very straightforward to use. You can browse by collection, occasion, garment, new in or sale.

The text on the web site can be increased or decreased. Different views of garments can be seen. Easy to zoom in on the clothes just by hovering over the particular area of the garment.

Drop down size and quantity selectors and a “contact us” link should your size not be available. Suggested matching pieces for your selected garment in a “complete the look” sidebar is a helpful addition:

One disadvantage of the site, was that I couldn’t find anywhere to change the currency from sterling to euro. It was no hassle to select the clothes I wanted and the usual credit cards were acceptable. The order was completed in sterling and there was a delivery charge of £7.95, which I thought was a bit much as the clothes are  expensive as it is.

That said, my order was delivered promptly within a few days and packaged well.

I liked the fact that there was a returns note included with my clothes and also a “no postage required” address form, so it looks like returns would be easy enough should any of the garments need to be sent back.

Overall it was a pleasure to use this website, it has a nice look and feel to it and it was definitely less painful than having to traipse back into town with baby in tow to get the skirt I wanted. Will definitely keep it in mind for future occasionwear shopping!
