What People Ordered VS What They Got Shopping Online

Trista - December 31, 2021

4. Size Does Matter

Here is another example of a gorgeous tapestry failing to meet expectations. Ackerman77 liked the quirky design featured on this acid tapestry (via Reddit). Furthermore, it is easy to see how psychedelic and cool. A closeup of the order information also promises “an insanely trippy artwork with the master rip goblin in the middle leading you through your voyage.” It also states that the tapestry was supposed to be large – 74-by-44 inches.

Well, the item that arrived left a lot more to the imagination. While the one in the advertising stretched across a wall, the one the user-posted barely fit alongside the couch. Not only that, but the design seemed faded and dull compared to the vibrant. Maybe the measurements were off because they counted the smaller goblin? One commenter suggested the original poster turn on a black light and “pretend you are smaller (via Reddit).” Keep reading for more online shopping mishaps!

3. An Itsy-Bitsy Teeny-Weeny Kitty Bikini

It is no day at the beach when you order something, and it does not come in the correct size. Swimwear can be difficult to purchase online, but no one thinks the sizing would be so off that it would fit a pet. A mother said her 16-year-old daughter bought a lace bikini from an online merchant and the size that arrived was much more than a size small (via ABC11). Rather than get angry over the misleading size, she decided to take a whole different approach and went viral in the process.

The mom took her complaint one step further by posting a hilarious and negative critique about the experience online. She posted the original advertised photo as well as another picture of the family cat in the bikini. The review said: “But, so you can see … here is a picture of our cat wearing it. To be fair, it does cover all of the cat’s [little parts], even though she hates the weave. In summary, do not buy this, even for your cat (via ABC11).” Now that’s the cat’s, er, um, bikini!

2. A Barely-There Dress Gone Wrong

Every girl should have a dress that she can rely on. Nothing can fit you better than a well-made dress, and like bathing suits, the best results are hard to come by in an online store. You can accentuate curves and have fabric flair out to hide any troubled spots. However, when the purchase is shipped directly to you, you must rely on standard sizing to fit your body.

Unfortunately for this customer, what was on the digital rack did not fit her like she thought it would. After posting the two images, she put the text “Never shopping online again” with several sad emojis in a row (via Daily Sun). Sure, the dress on the model looks like it fit her like a glove. However, the nude dress falls off her frame (via Daily Sun). The peekaboo midsection droops far below her belly button, and the bust hangs off her shoulders. It is not as flattering, and it fails to cover her adequately.

1. He Actually Loved His Accidental Dress

Even when it does not work out the way it is supposed to, you can still have a bit of fun with your predicament. Another dress failure, Jeremy posted on his Facebook wall an Amazon purchase that did not live up to his expectations. He purchased a muscle tank that he had hoped to wear during his workouts. While the model in the picture can wear the tank comfortably up to his hips, Jeremy discovered that there was much more fabric than he bargained for.

Jeremy took the opportunity and had some fun at his own expense. He posted a mirror selfie next to the product to show how oversized the tank was. He was able to stretch the tank down to his mid-thigh and posted the hilarious zinger about how the shirt accentuated his body in a way he hadn’t intended. “I got this tank from Amazon, and they sent me a dress,” Jeremy said in his comment (via Elite Daily). “On the plus side, it does make my [butt] look good (via Elite Daily).” At least this shopping experience brings a smile to his face. Will you contine shopping online even after seeing all of these crazy deliveries gone wrong?
