‘Expectation vs Reality’: Make up artist hits out at PrettyLittleThing over a bodysuit that barely covered her breasts in yet another online order fail
- Laica Fehr, 21, from Sydney shared photos of the outfits she bought online
- The beautician gave recently birth and wanted clothes to boost her confidence
- She slammed the retailer after ordering clothes two sizes up that still didn’t fit
An irritated make-up artist has hit out at PrettyLittleThing after a unitard she ordered looked nothing it did online.
Laica Fehr, 21, from Sydney ordered a black ribbed plunge sleeveless unitard for AUS$38 (£21), as well as a pair of jeans from the online fashion giant in size 12.
She wanted some new clothes to feel confident after giving birth and even ordered the jeans in two sizes larger than usual to accommodate her new curves.
But when the clothes arrived she was shocked to find that the unitard she ordered barely covered her breasts, and the ripped jeans wouldn’t fasten.
‘I shouldn’t have had to deal with items not matching what is being advertised,’ Laica told Femail. ‘I even ordered two sizes up than my normal size since I’m quite curvier since birth.’
