A shopper claims she was left looking like a drag queen gone wrong after a gold jumpsuit turned out to be completely see-through.
Ellen Williams had purchased the £35 jumpsuit for the festive season from online fashion retailer PrettyLittleThing after seeing Lauren Goodger wearing it.
But the 21-year-old was horrified to discover the glittery outfit hung off her body, bunched round her ankles and was completely transparent – revealing her underwear.
Ellen has had to throw the jumpsuit away, but shared pictures of herself modelling it with her friends.
She believes the jumpsuit is made of different materials to the one modelled in the advert.
Ellen, from London, said: Its shocking to see how nice something looks on the picture compared to what came through the post. Its so disappointing.
I looked awful. I said I looked like a drag queen gone wrong.
When you get something that makes you think “oh yes, thatd look really nice on me” then the quality is really bad, it makes you feel a bit rubbish about yourself.
Theres a little part of you that thinks is it actually me?
Ive seen a few celebrities wearing that jumpsuit. Id seen Lauren from The Only Way is Essex wearing it and it looks like it did online on her, but theres no way I was sent the same.
They have 100% used different material for the model.
Its like two different outfits. It seems like very, very cheap fabric.
Ellen contacted PrettyLittleThing who immediately gave her a refund for the jumpsuit and told her not to bother returning it.
Although she admits the cut seemed the same, Ellen, who is 5ft 7, was left with a mountain of fabric around her ankles as the jumpsuit was so long.
Ellen said: When it was in the packaging I didnt really notice straight away because it was all layered and looked okay.
But when I got it out the wrapping I wouldnt have usually bothered trying it on, but thought itd look so funny.
Its inconsistent. I ordered a dress for New Years Eve last year that was a red gown and it was beautiful. I loved it.
I do look on there and I will go there if I want something for a party and I bought this on Tuesday night for my Christmas party in December.
I like their jumpsuits usually. When they have the odd good item, you have a bit of hope.
£35 isnt the cheapest. Its cheaper than some things, but if Im paying £35 for an outfit I would expect to be paying for the quality as well.
It almost seems like one of those outfits youd wear over a swimming costume or something if you were going to a pool party or something, but thats not what theyve advertised it as.
I definitely wont be braving wearing that out.
Id pretty much say it was the same cut, but there was a lot of material at the bottom and Im quite tall, Im 5ft 7.
PrettyLittleThing asked me to let them know my order number and refunded me.
We contacted PrettyLittleThing for comment, who told us: We are looking into the material issue and can confirm the customer was issued with a full refund as soon as we were notified.
