‘What even is this?’ PrettyLittleThing shopper is furious after discovering the £11 dress she ordered looks VERY different to the photo online
- Rhea King Taylor, 18, ordered an £11 size eight black dress from PrettyLittleThing
- On arrival the dress looked completely different to how it was advertised online
- She’s said she was ‘fuming’ and ‘disappointed’ as she wanted to wear it soon
A ‘fuming’ woman has hit out at PrettyLittleThing after a dress she ordered looked nothing like it did online.
British nursery worker Rhea King Taylor, 18, bought the black satin dress from the online retailer in her normal size 8 – but was shocked with how it looked when she tried it on at home.
A picture advertising the £11 dress online shows a model draped in the plunging dress – her chest and hip almost entirely exposed.
Rhea, from London, found the frock actually pulled across her waist and cut straight across her top.
An image of the fashion mishap was shared on Twitter by Rhea’s sister, Ruby Wheeler, who captioned the image: ‘What even is this?’

And it’s not the first time the website has come under fire for it’s dresses looking different to how they’re advertised.
Last week, an irritated make-up artist has hit out at the fashion giant after a unitard she ordered looked nothing it did online.
Laica Fehr, 21, from Sydney ordered a black ribbed plunge sleeveless unitard for AUS$38 (£21), as well as a pair of jeans from the online fashion giant in size 12.
She wanted some new clothes to feel confident after giving birth and even ordered the jeans in two sizes larger than usual to accommodate her new curves.
But when the clothes arrived she was shocked to find that the unitard she ordered barely covered her breasts, and the ripped jeans wouldn’t fasten.

The brand have often been criticised for poorly-sized clothing, with one woman from Florida describing a dress she bought as the ‘worst purchase I’ve ever made’.
Ashley Teran, 23, bought a black mini dress with a thigh split from the online retailer for $35 (£20).
But when it arrived, the skimpy dress showed far more than she bargained for, with the thigh split exposing her underwear.
In December, Lucy Anderson-Roberts was left red-faced after an item she bought left her nipples exposed.
The 27-year-old was horrified when a £5 top she bought, also from PrettyLittleThing, featured rips positioned over her breasts rather than her stomach as per the model image.
