Pretty Little Thing keeps sending people absurdly long trousers
We’ve all ordered something that looks incredible online, only to be deeply disappointed when it shows up.
Maybe you were a victim of the excessively long ASOS jeans moment. Perhaps the lovely chair you ordered turned out to be doll size.
It makes sense that this happens fairly regularly. Pictures of things put online are deliberately flattering. Models are super slim and tall, clothes have been clipped and pinned, sizes vary between stores.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t kick off – or laugh – when the clothes we end up getting sent are absolutely ridiculous.
Take Dan, a makeup artist from Edinburgh.
Dan ordered a pair of red basic jersey flared trousers from Pretty Little Thing. This is a reasonable thing to do, because the model wearing the trousers looks blimmin’ fierce.
When the trousers arrived, they were not quite what Dan was expecting… in the sense that they were so long they took up the entire length of her body. Ah.
The good news is that Dan managed to get some laughs out of her predicament, and her tweet racked up more than 27,000 likes. So that’s nice.
But her one tweet has uncovered a bigger problem.
You see, Dan is not a slightly short exception to a generally great sizing policy.
A quick browse through Twitter reveals that Pretty Little Thing has a strange and wonderful habit of sending people ridiculously long trousers.
Does Pretty Little Thing secretly supply clothing to giants, or some strange type of being with legs up to their neck?
Is the designer so used to having her grandma take things up for her that she just adds in a load of extra fabric so people can alter their pants as they choose?
Is this a global conspiracy to make everyone think their legs are short?
Is Pretty Little Thing manufacturing seven foot tall models hellbent on taking over the world by putting all our needed items on high up shelves?
We think we’ve stumbled upon something big, here, people.
We’ve reached out to Pretty Little Thing to find out why the brand can’t stop sending people incredibly long trousers, and will update this story if we hear back.
