A woman has been left in stitches after a party dress she ordered on ASOS failed to live up to her expectations – and instead left her looking ‘like an ostrich’
If you’ve ever bought clothes online, you’ve probably tried something on that ends up looking nothing like the version modelled in the pictures on the website.
That’s exactly what happened to one woman on TikTok, who was left in stitches after she tried on a black party dress from ASOS that left her “looking like an ostrich”, the Daily Star reports.
Kate Snooks bought a dress that was made up of thin strips of glittery black fabric to create a feathery effect, and while it looked sleek and stylish on the model, she was less than impressed when she tried it on herself.
In her video, Kate first shared a picture of the model on the website wearing the dress, before following it up with several pictures of herself in the garment – as she giggled and pulled faces at the fashion fail.

She wrote on the clip: “What I ordered vs what I got. Why do I look like an ostrich?”
Kate, who posts under the username @katesnooks, also shared several hashtags in the description of the video, where she said the dress was a “clothing fail”.
And one commenter shared in her pain as they wrote underneath the clip: “Oh no!”
The Mirror has contacted ASOS for comment.
Meanwhile, Kate isn’t the only person to have suffered a fashion disaster recently, as we reported last month that another woman had ordered a top from PrettyLittleThing that left “everything on show” when she put it on.
Ashleigh Simpson, 23, chose the white bralette on the fashion retailer’s website as she thought it would be the perfect addition to her holiday wardrobe, but was left baffled when she opened the package to find a top that was far bigger than she was expecting.
And when she tried it on, the call centre worker from Perth, Scotland, was stunned to find it “didn’t even cover” her chest.
She said: “I ordered the top in my usual size, a size 4, and it was so baggy it hung around my waist. It didn’t even cover my chest. Everything was on show!
“The top caught my eye when I was browsing for holiday outfits. I ordered it to go with a skirt as I thought it would make a nice outfit for the evening. It cost me £15.
“When my order arrived and I started unpacking it, I thought they must have sent me the wrong item. I lifted it out of the bag and tried to work out how it actually went on my body.”
