This is what happens when you buy your formal dress from dodgy sites

WORST NIGHTMARE!

Online shopping formal dress

The World Wide Web is a wonderful place.

It has opened up ALL the possibilities in farrshun and for that we have thanked the style gods.

BUT, with the good comes the bad. Real bad.

16-year-old Chloe Bradley decided to purchase her formal dress on the site Shillas.co.uk, and we can guarantee she regrets that decision now.

The website offers 'made-to-measure' dresses, so it should literally be the perfect fit... but she was left bitterly disappointed with what she received in the mail.

The ~gown~ cost her UK£120 (AU$230) so you would expect perfection...

Chloe's mum described the fitting experience as, "Trying it on was like a limbo dance into a badly fitting arrangement of material."

Eek.

"She tried putting it on over her head, then stepping into it, but to no avail. It simply didn't fit in the right places. I was devastated and Chloe was desperately frustrated."

Don't do this to us online shopping, we rely on you way too much.

Chloe isn't the only one who has ordered a ~fancy~ formal dress and ended up with a potato sack.

Here are some of the most outrageous #FAILS:

We might stick to IRL shopping for our upcoming formals, just sayin'.
