Woman howling as PrettyLittleThing dress leaves her ‘looking like a Flintstone’

A woman claims she was left looking ‘like a Flintstone’ or ‘Thumbelina wearing a handkerchief’ thanks to a Pretty Little Thing dress she ordered online.

Avril Wood, 26, bought the outfit after her boyfriend said he would take her out for a meal at the weekend.

But the therapist was surprised by what turned up on her doorstep.

She ordered what she believed to be a size eight, leopard print, satin mini dress.

However, she was left howling when she claims what arrived was more like a ‘tent’ and made her look like ‘Thumbelina wearing a handkerchief’.


Avril, from Northwich, Cheshire, said: "After my boyfriend told me he was going to be taking me for dinner at the weekend, I thought I’d treat myself to a new dress.

"I didn’t have anything like this in my wardrobe so thought it would be great to add to my wardrobe.

"But as soon as it arrived I was shocked, and immediately knew it wasn’t going to fit me – but I didn’t realise it would be this bad!

"When I tried it on I couldn’t stop laughing, it was as big as a tent and made me look like Thumbelina if she wore a handkerchief.


"After I tried it on I immediately packaged it back up and returned it to them."

Despite being annoyed that she was left without a new dress for her meal, Avril reveals she has found the whole experience hilarious.

She said: "As soon as I saw it I was laughing so much, I even called my mum into the room to look at how ridiculous it was.

"The dress was huge and absolutely drowned me, but part of the reason I tried it on was because I knew how funny it would look.

"I even tried to tie a belt around the dress like the model did, but it didn’t make a difference.

"Anyone who’s seen it has had a good laugh – my boyfriend even said I looked like a Flintstone!

"Even though this isn’t the first time I’ve had a fail from Pretty Little Thing, I know I’ll never learn and continue to order from them!"

Pretty Little Thing has been contacted for a comment.
