The dress fit Kirsty’s four-year-old daughter Molly (Picture: Pretty Little Thing, @Kirstyfruitz/Twitter)It’s always a gamble choosing a dress size when you’re ordering online – will it be too big, too small, or will it have complete disregard for your social life and arrive late?
Sizes can be a lottery – one store’s size 12 might be another one’s 14.
But one mum was horrified to find that her size eight dress from PrettyLittleThing was so small, it fit her four-year-old daughter.
Kirsty Dee took to Twitter to call out the retailer for the mishap, uploading an image of her daughter – who the dress fit perfectly – wearing the adult sized dress.
The mum said she’d bought it to show off at a party but couldn’t even get it over her head.
The mum showed the label which said it was a size eight (Picture: @Kirstyfruitz/Twitter)Kirsty wrote online: ‘So bought this in a size eight from PrettyLittleThing, wouldn’t even go over my head and just fits my four-year-old daughter! Really?????’
She had purchased the classic LBD dress in a T-shirt cut and was excited to try it out ahead of the birthday party she’d planned to wear it to.
But she was shocked at how small it was and said it was ‘disgusting’ of the brand to make such tiny items for adults.
‘I just think it’s disgusting how they promote body confidence and then send me a dress not fit for a size 6 – 8,’ she told The Sun.
Daughter Molly also looks fed up with PLT (Picture: @Kirstyfruitz/Twitter)‘Made me feel awful at first but laughed it off when I saw it fit my 4-year-old.
‘I couldn’t get it over my head. I was so angry. I bought it for my friend’s birthday BBQ the day after.’
PrettyLittleThing responded to Kirsty’s tweet, saying: ‘Hi Kirsty, so sorry to see that there is an issue with the dress you bought. if you could please drop us a DM with your order number and the name of the item we can look into getting this sorted for you.’
