Online shopping fail! A woman in China has been left disgruntled after the daring dress she bought online fell short of her expectations
There is always a risk when buying clothes online - sometimes the fabric feels cheap, or the colour just doesn't seem to match how it appeared on screen. Or the fit could be far less flattering in real life than online - as one woman has just discovered. The Chinese shopper bought a risqué black dress - which featured a full length sheer panel - from eCommerce site Taobao.
The gown, a copy of one worn by Thor actress Jaime Alexander at the film's premiere in 2013, features features top-to-bottom see-through panels on the front and back of the dress, which mean concealing the wearer's modesty is something of a challenge. While the customer was hoping to emulate the daring look shown online, the real deal turned out to be less glamorous than she hoped.
The unsatisfied shopper posted comparison pictures on the seller's page, showing how the dress revealed far more than she intended. Stretched across a less petite figure, the sheer panel shows off a lot more skin and covers less of her intimate regions, turning what was a daring look into a rather more X-rated one. The shopper's pink slippers do little to help the sartorial situation as they stuck out obviously from underneath her dress, giving her a humorous look.

Jaimie Alexander made headlines when she walked the red carpet in the designer version of the dress 18 months ago. The actress raised eyebrows as she risked wardrobe malfunctions in every direction, with her daring dress skirting dangerously close to her nipples, bikini line and bottom.
However, her washboard stomach and statuesque figure did go some way in helping to pull off the shocking look.
