Description

I need to get this dress out of my life.

I bought this dress online (NOT from Wish even though many MANY websites/FB pages say I did. It was Ali express!)

I measured myself. Twice. I picked the 4XL. According to the sizing chart I would fit this dress well.

I didn’t.

I couldn’t get it over my boobs. I asked my kid to take a photo to send to my sister.

My sister uploaded the photo to reddit.

The internet went mad.

I was tagged in four thousand million Facebook posts with titles like “when online shopping goes wrong!” And “14 people who didn’t get what they wanted”. I was mortified. It wasn’t even a nice photo of me. I had no makeup on. Hadn’t shaved my legs. Hadn’t even vacuumed.

I was accused of cutting the dress (I didn’t), asked if I even had a torso (I do!) and, helpfully, told I had ordered the wrong size....

So take this out of my life once and for all. You could own the second picture in the google search “WISH DRESS FAIL” for as little as $1!

please note this “high quality” dress has a small bleach (?) stain on the bodice. I will add photos of this.*

Money will go towards some therapy.

    Hahahaha this is hilarious! I ordered a knee length jacket from Ali express and was delivered something that resembled a cropped waistcoat :/. My partner was “gifted” lingerie in one of his orders from there once- realistically, Chinese manufacturers must have a very different idea of what classifies “sexy”. Better still, who gifts lingerie when ordering nothing related :( ccccourtney(17)11:42 am, Wed, 13 Feb

    If that is no makeup - you don't need any. You look very attractive without it. The dress is hideous though, even in the website picture. Flamingos?! And stripes? I guess if you're 6 perhaps. No, 4. Pity about the scribbles on your limbs too. lythande1(814)11:42 am, Wed, 13 Feb

    When I got my scribbles I was thinking to myself “gosh I hope lythande1 from trade me likes these” so obviously now I’m extremely heartbroken reading your comment. Also I would love to see what you wear so we can all comment on whether or not we think your clothes are hideous. It is vitally important that everyone on this planet share the same taste in clothing. How will mankind continue if people aren’t unique?! I’m a fat girl who loves colours.

    Okay.... picture this.... lace ribbon around the waist with a piece of silky string from back to front. The top was like a stretched piece of fly screen and a bad ribbon to sit centrally on the boobs, but instead ending up on the belly button. Horrific. ccccourtney(17)11:47 am, Wed, 13 Feb
