Ah, the pitfalls of online shopping!
You think you’ve found a bargain, only to receive something that really won’t work at all.
TikTok user Lily recently ordered a potential dress for her wedding after spotting a perfect frock online.
Looking like a bargain, she ordered the £36 ($50) dress to her home – and was left in stitches when it arrived.
Unfortunately, the old adage ‘If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is’ proved to be correct.
When advertised on the site, the incredible frock had a black bodice decorated with black flowers and a plunging neckline.
The dress featured a wrap-around skirt which was open at the front, in order to create a very dramatic look.
Then Lily received a rather different dress in the post.
The sleeveless dress featured a white flower-covered top, with a black bodice effect and a very sheer skirt.
Understandably she wasn’t super impressed at the package, taking to TikTok to show off the knock-off dress.
In the caption, she wrote: “Yeah so f*ck Soda Club if they ever appear again, you should probs avoid.”
In the comments, she said the website had been deleted, so she was planning to donate the frock to charity.
Her video racked up thousands of views – as people were horrified to see what she received, compared to what she ordered.
One person asked: “But where would anyone wear this kind of dress? Even the one in the photo?”
Lily admitted: “Honestly, I was thinking about wearing it to my wedding. Yikes on me LMAO.”
Another said: “It’s so much worse than what I was expecting.”
Following some complaints about supporting the fast fashion industry, Lily clarified that she was looking for a cheaper wedding dress due to bargain constraints.
One person tried to offer a silver lining, joking: “Girl you got yourself a fancy swim suit.”
