A woman has criticised online retailer PrettyLittleThing for its sizing after being sent a dress that barely covers her modesty.
Size 12 shopper Bethanie Moore, 21, from Wolverhampton, ordered the black wrap dress in a size 14, just in case it came up a little small.
However she was left shocked when she put the dress on and found the fabric didn’t pull across her midriff properly, leaving her underwear on show.
The disappointed student tweeted the clothing brand and asked it to explain.

The customer tweeted side-by-side photos of herself and the PrettyLittleThing model, pictured, to highlight how different the dress looked online

She claims she has yet to receive any comment from the online retailer.
Bethanie posted a side-by-side photo of herself in the dress alongside the image of a model from the website, and tweeted: ‘Explain this please’.
The shopper ordered a size 16 dress at the same time but claims she ‘couldn’t get it over her shoulders’.

The black Long sleeve wrap midi jersey tea dress is £10 on the site, but Bethanie said it looks nothing like it does on the site
She later said: ‘I think it really knocks a girls confidence having to go up to a size bigger. Even though the average UK size for females is 12 we’re constantly seeing models wearing a size 6-8.’
‘I think it’s important sizing is accurate and girls aren’t made to feel any bigger than they are – when we already feel pressure to be slim!’
And the disappointed customer said that the design wasn’t even the same as it was on the website.
Bethanie complained about shoppers needing to order a larger size to fit the retailer’s clothes
‘The dress was a totally different design to what was displayed online, and as you can see from my picture the sizing is way off,’
‘I even sized up when ordering, to a 14, as I knew PrettyLittleThing and other brands are known for having dodgy sizing – but it was still awful!’
One of her followers commented on her tweet, jokingly saying: ‘I like it’. Bethanie joked back saying ‘Trendsetter’ but added: ‘had to use a lil [little] emoji to cover my dignity (what is left of it)’.
Bethanie returned the dress but didn’t reorder it in a different size.
PrettyLittleThing has been contacted for comment.
