An online shopper was left gutted after ordering a glam dress online for £240 – as all that was delivered was a ‘sleeve’ and there was no way she could fit into it.
Twitter user Seek, @SeekTheFinds, shared a snap of the item that arrived and said she must have been ‘hallucinating’ the word dress in the description as it was far too small for anyone to wear.
The garment, which was designed with sections tied together after being cut, can barely fit on the woman’s arm and looks tight even there.
After sharing the picture online, the Twitter user was soon inundated with comments as one user joked she should put the ‘dress’ in water so it will expand.
What do you think about the tiny garment? Let us know in the comments…
Taking to Twitter, she wrote: “So I thought I was ordering a dress… Turns out I spent $300 (£240) on a sleeve. Wtf.”
She showed an image of an advert for the item, and it was described as a dress with ‘cut-out detailing’, ‘bead embellishment’, and an ‘asymmetric neckline’.
She continued: “The price was too good to be true. But am I hallucinating at the word DRESS in the title?”
After sharing the online shopping mishap, the Twitter user was soon inundated with comments.
One user said: “You better squeeze yourself into that dress sleeve… $300?!”
And another joked: “Ordered a sleeveless dress and they sent a dressless sleeve.”
Then a third added: “You’re supposed to put it in water so it’ll expand.”

Meanwhile, when buying a pair of joggers, many of us will opt for the next size up, knowing that a larger pair can often be much comfier for lounging around the house.
However, sometimes there is a limit as to oversized you should go, as one woman recently learned all too well.
A TikTok user named Kiera recently treated herself to a pair of grey tall joggers from Boohoo in a size small, but was alarmed when she saw what they looked like in real life.
After trying them on, the baffled TikToker pondered whether Boohoo was “actually taking the p*** out of me now”, with the waistband of the joggers fitting just under her armpits.
