Online shopping has got a firm hold on our lives and one reason for this is because we actually tend to spend less when ordering something from the Internet compared to when we shop in-store. However, buying things without seeing them has its disadvantages — just look at the monstrous dress and shoes with shortened soles that we included in today’s compilation.
We are thankful for people who’ve shared online purchases that ended up being far from what they expected and appreciate their ability to laugh instead of cry over spilled milk. And we invite you to have a look — and a hearty chuckle — at these purchases too.
“I’d never thought that this would happen to me — and yet here we are.”

“I want my money back.”
“I just need to add the grapes. Then voila — it’ll look just like the original.”
“My friend bought this costume online and I’ve been laughing all day.”
It seems the factory ran out of rubber while producing these shoes.”
“These shorts my friend ordered from an Instagram ad — just a little bit different from the advertisement!”
“Maybe I just need to water it and it’ll grow…?”
“What I ordered (left) vs what I got (right) — it’s actually way funnier this way, though.”
“Those pockets were supposed to be a bit lower.”
