A woman has been left in stitches after she picked up a cute top from Pretty Little Thing for £15 – which left little to the imagination when it arrived in the post.
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 and left “everything on show”.

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.
“I started laughing because it looked really big, but I checked the label and it said it was a size 4.”
Ashleigh spent some time trying to work out how the top was supposed to wrap around her body – before realising it wasn’t supposed to wrap at all, it was just way too big.
The woman was left “disappointed” with her oversized purchase, as when she went to re-order the same product in hopes of bagging the right size this time, the item had sold out.
She added: “I realised that the top wasn’t meant to wrap around the body, it was just so baggy. It was meant to be around my chest but it was hanging at my waist.
“I couldn’t stop laughing, so I showed my partner and he thought it was just as funny. It was absolutely hilarious because it didn’t cover my chest at all. I don’t know how anyone would be able to wear it.
“I took a picture to send to my group chat with my friends. They all thought it was absolutely hysterical too. I just couldn’t believe how wrong the top was. It looked amazing online.
“I was quite disappointed because I loved the top and I really wanted to be able to wear it on holiday. But when I went back to reorder it, it was out of stock.
“But at least it gave us all a good laugh!”
