Buying things online has become the norm with the evolving technology, but buying a dress on the internet has to be one of the biggest risks people take.
A bride-to-be was disappointed when her dream dress she had ordered online at a bargain price arrived but it did not look anything close to what she had seen on the photos.
Mirror reported 23-year-old Meaghan Taylor had ordered the second-hand dress for £60 on Wish website.
According to her, the gown was advertised as a flowing gown with a large skirt, a V-shaped neckline and lace sleeves which were what she had been looking for.
But Meaghan's excitement was short-lived. When the garment arrived for her to try it on; she was not prepared for the frock she unwrapped.
She was disappointed to discover that it looked absolutely nothing like the photos she had seen on the site.
Meaghan, who is from Canada, said the dress rolled up when she tried it on instead of flowing gracefully.
Speaking about the disastrous dress, she said she was blown away by what she had received.
"I was pretty heartbroken, but I could not help but laugh," she said.
The 23-year-old said she contacted the private seller on Wish to ask for a refund, but she had some trouble getting her money back.
According to her, the seller asked her for the original packaging and the box the dress had come in but she had not kept them.
"I then proceeded to tell them that this ruined my wedding as I was expecting the dress in the photo. And they finally returned my money," she said.
The mother of one has been able to see the funny side of the shopping fail and will be finding a new dress for her wedding to her 30-year-old fiancé Keith Reid.
