I forked out for a wedding dress online but it looks nothing like what I ordered, I look like I'm wearing a coconut bra

A BRIDE-TO-BE has expressed her devastation after buying a £6,000 wedding dress – only for it to arrive looking nothing like what she ordered.

The anonymous woman, believed to be from the US, took to Reddit and captioned the post: "What I got versus what I ordered. Wedding dress nightmare."


She went onto explain how she forked out a whopping £6,342 on the designer dress but says when she went to try on the gown for the first time, it looked like an "absolute disaster."

The bride-to-be continued: "The dress I received is COMPLETELY different from the dress I ordered to the point where the dress I received is absolutely unwearable."

She then shared just a few of the main differences – including way less detailing on the bodice, a much higher neckline and "awful bulky" straps.

Highlighting another major difference, she added: "The size of the cups. Omg the cups. I look like I’m wearing a coconut bra."

I’m honestly not sure how this happened. When the store owner took my measurements, she recommended that I go one size up from the sample. "

I stupidly agreed after some back and forth."

"The sample fit, but was snug, and the owner said the sample is probably stretched out as well so it’s not fitting true to size."

However, my cup size measured the sample size so I paid an extra £237 to do a split size where the cups are one size smaller. There is no reason for those cups to be that huge."

And it wasn't long before social forum users took to the comments section to sympathise with the bride-to-be.

"If it’s any consolation, when I first looked, I couldn’t see much of a difference. But reading your post and seeing the full body pics, I would be livid too."

"It looks to me like they put the bodice appliqués in the wrong spot – they should be between the centre boning and the side boning, like they are on the sample, and not over the centre boning leaving so much of the sides exposed."

And the cups are enormous! Outrageous! I hope you get a refund AND get the dress remade the way you wanted/ordered it."

A second commented: "The dress looks like a knock off."

A third penned: "It’s the cups that are most noticeable to me.. completely different shape! Also, there’s a gap between the cups in the sample dress.. your dress has none… the cups directly connect! Wow, I’d be p****."
