This woman received a shocking surprise when she received a dress, she had ordered from SHEIN, as it left her breasts exposed. The black dress had a daring cut-out design meant to accentuate curves, but it fit so poorly that she had to wear a camisole underneath to prevent any wardrobe malfunction. In her TikTok video, she fumed: “Unbelievable! It got worse and worse.” In the comments, some said they’d experienced the same, with one writing, “I always have to remind myself that the body doesn’t come with the clothes.”

Pretty Little Thing

A Pretty Little Thing customer had a rather amusing experience when she received a pair of white trousers in an absurd size. Sophie Monk, the shopper, shared a photo of herself holding the £20 trousers next to the picture from the clothing brand’s website. The model looked normal-sized in the image, but on Sophie, they appeared huge, nearly reaching up to her neck. The pants were not only balloon-like in shape but also excessively long for her.

The dress he received looked completely different from the one he had seen in the side-by-side comparison shared on Reddit. The Amazon top was supposed to be a fitted vest for men, but when he tried it on, it ended up fitting him like a tight body-con dress. The man joked: “I got this tank top on Amazon and they sent me a dress. On the plus side, it does make my arse look great.”

The shopper shared a photo of the mismatch on Reddit and comments emerged, with one writing, “Always order four sizes larger!!! Hasn’t anyone told you?” Another commented: “Oh hell’s yes. That face that succinctly says, ‘Just shoot me now.’

The design showcased some of the world’s most famous landmarks, including the Leaning Tower of Pisa. One Redditor joked: “Omfg. I snorted. I need to get these for my significant other. She’s always wanted a penis of her own!” Another said: “It’s even in the actual spot.”

Nasty Gal

This shopper took advantage of a discounted offer for faux leather pants on the online shopping site Nasty Gal, only to be met with pants looking oversized that they resembled something that would fit the childhood character BFG (Big Friendly Giant). Ashley, from the UK, humorously described having a “mental breakdown” upon receiving the trousers. She said: “I would like to shout out to Nasty Gal. I’d like to lodge a grievance because I ordered some trousers from you and I’ve been having a mental breakdown for three days over them. I now feel ready to talk about it. I’d just like to know who the hell did you model these on, the BF f***ing G?”

Phaith Montoya, from the US, purchased a black zipped jumper from a small business and looked forward to trying it on. She intended to showcase the item to her three million fans but was left disappointed when she realized the jumper was way too small. Despite buying a size 3X that was supposed to “fit all,” the garment was so tight that it cut into her skin, leaving her in tears. She said: “When you claim your clothes will go up to a 3XL — one size fits up to a 3X – mean that! Because I literally just had to cut this up, unlogged the zipper out of my skin, and cut my stomach up. I had to cut myself out of the outfit because it did not, in fact, fit up to a 3X.”
