These Poor Teens Bought Prom Dresses Online And Lived To Regret It

There are a lot of perks that come with shopping online. You can pretty much get anything you want, but expectations and reality are often worlds apart, especially when you’re shopping for a prom dress. Just ask these teens who thought they’d look like Cinderella and wound up looking like her wicked stepsisters.

THE CURTAIN CALL

The Curtain Call Oficial

It looks just like a curtain that’s been repurposed as a dress. No, scratch that! A curtain actually looks better than this. It’s just awfully wrong, from every angle! We would be so pissed in her place so kudos for laughing in the face of uncertainty, girl.

ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL

One Size Does Not Fit All Ridus

This is the best fail for worst prom dress ever! The poor thing looks like a puffer fish. The material is clearly different and even though we’re laughing on the outside, we’re dying with sympathy on the inside.

LADY LIBERTY

She wanted to go looking like a Hollywood celeb at the Oscars, but instead she wound up looking like the Statue of Liberty. This knock off is a travesty at best. We’d probably have crawled in a hole until graduation day.

THE KARDASHIAN ORIGINAL

Yeah, right! It needs more material in the skirt, for starters. This just looks like she received one layer of very cheap fabric. It’s definitely not the same dress that was advertised. Just look at the embroidery on the bodice.

THE WALKING SEQUINS

What? Where did the sequins go? As if the crease in the middle wasn’t bad enough, it also looks like the sequins from the original dress have seemingly fallen off or walked off on their own. This is just so bootleg.

IRON ME PLEASE

Well, it’s certainly not the worst we’ve seen, but it’s definitely a disappointment compared to what she was promised and paid for. It could also use a good ironing.

IT’S A SHEER FAIL

The accents on the sheer top aren’t even remotely the same as in the ad. Ultimately, the fail in this dress is in the details. But then again, dresses don’t exactly come with a magical wand either.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY HOTEL

Did the makers steal the fabric from some creepy haunted hotel? There isn’t enough stitching or fixing that could bring this prom dress back to life. The seller clearly has no shame.

THINK BEFORE YOU ORDER

Think Before You Order Tomajoki

For starters, these dresses are made to order by 3rd party makers. It’s not even a legit online store with actual photos, but stolen photos from online. But if you’re still hellbent on buying a dress online, check the size and height and compare it with your measurements before committing to it. Otherwise, prepare to be pissed!

IS THAT YOU, POISON IVY?

This would look great if you were cosplaying as a DC villain, but it’s your prom. The last thing you need is to get there with tears in your eyes. It’s not so bad, but if you were planning on creating that vava voom vibe, you’re in for a rude shock.
