We do take some naughty joy at other peoples online shopping fails.
We know full well we could fall victim to an expectation vs reality mismatch, and that we shouldnt cackle at others misfortune, but we just cant help it.
After all the glorious fails that have made the internet rounds, people really should know better… especially when it comes to buying a wedding dress.
And yet people still brave the risks of misleading photos and dodgy fabrics to order the outfit for their big day online.
Such is the case for this anonymous woman, who ordered a dress that ended up looking nothing at all like the Instagram-worthy picture she saw online.
The reality was so dire that she had to buy a second gown.
Let this serve as a lesson to us all – if a wedding dress seems too good (and cheap) to be true, you probably shouldnt trust it.
The womans mishap was shared by a friend in the Thats It, Im Wedding Shaming Facebook group. Along with the glorious side-by-side pictures, the friend wrote: Shared with permission from this gorgeous gal, although Ive removed her face as a courtesy.
Left is what she ordered. Right is what she received. She found a new dress and it all turned out OK, but what an online shopping FAIL! Poor lovely gal.
As youd probably expect from a wedding shaming group, commenters werent particularly sympathetic to the brides plight.
Instead of wailing on her behalf, most people criticised the choice to order a wedding dress online in the first place.
One person wrote: Do not order online from non-reputable designers, not for your wedding dress. A bathing suit or everyday wear? Sure give them a shot then but not your wedding dress!
Another commented: I have no sympathy for people who order their dress online. You know the risk at this point.
Some people did chip in with some advice for fixing the dress, though, pointing out that if the bride were to remove the pads and add in some nude lining, the dress really wouldnt be so bad.
But let us all learn a lesson from this: Ordering a wedding dress online really isnt wise. If its super cheap, it will likely look it, too.
