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.
