Girls always want to bring their A-game to prom. The hair and makeup is all part of achieving that glamorous look, but the most important thing is, of course, the dress. Girls everywhere start looking for their prom dress months in advance, so they can find the one dress that makes them look like a gorgeous, floating amazon on this special occasion. They not only want to look their best, but they want to feel like celebrities on the red carpet, or like real life princesses.
It can feel like a frustrating task, going from store to store, trying on dozens and even hundreds of dresses, and watching all of your friends as they finds stunning dresses of their own. The pressure builds up, and sometimes you just can’t find anything you like. Other times, you find the perfect dress but you can’t afford it. So what do you do? You shop online.
Online shopping has been a growing phenomena ever since stores were formed on the internet, offering people the possibility to shop for clothes from the comfort of their own home, and having it delivered straight to them. It’s easy and effortless, and can save a lot of time. You just sit in front of your computer, browse through the websites and pick the dress you like most. Sounds great on paper, but the reality can be very different than that.
There are many things that can go wrong when you’re shopping for clothes online. It’s hard to get the size exactly right, so you can end up with something that’s way too big or too small for your size. It can be unflattering for your body shape. And sometimes, it can even turn up completely different than what you thought you were ordering.
So ordering your prom dress online might not be such a good idea, because if the dress doesn’t work out, you’ll need to spend more money on another dress. And even worse – if it arrives at the last minute, you might be stuck with no dress at all! (Enter gasp and dramatic music here).
This is why many, many girls posted pictures of the prom dresses they ordered, comparing it to the ones they got, and warned other girls to stay away from the keyboard when they’re looking for their dress. So if you’ve ever thought about shopping for your dress online, these hilarious pictures of prom dress fails might just convince you otherwise.
