A Boohoo customer has been left perplexed after ordering a knitted jumper dress that left her looking like a ‘monk’.

Caroline Vickers from Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire shared side-by-side photos showing a model in the £18 dress, next to hilarious selfies in the dress, which looked very different.

The mother-of-two bought the orange Cable Knit Midi Dress in her usual size small from the online retailer in a bid to update her wardrobe for winter.

She expected the jumper dress to cut off at the knee – as advertised on the model on Boohoo’s website.

However, after trying the dress on Caroline, 30, said she was left looking more like ‘a sack of potatoes’ as it swamped her.

Caroline said: ‘I have two children, one aged three and a three-month-old, so basically I went on a bit of a spree as for most of this year I have been pregnant so had a bit of an outdated wardrobe.

‘I thought right I’ve had my baby, I can now try and update my wardrobe and hopefully start to fit in some clothes that don’t consist of maternity leggings and baggy T-shirts!

The dress online looks very different to the one that arrived in a darker colour and much bigger

‘I ordered quite a few things, but this just topped it.

‘I opened the parcel thinking I was getting a burnt orange knitted midi dress that would be so nice to wear in autumn, however what I got was a brown monk dress and felt like a sack of potatoes.

‘The arms were absolutely huge and it dragged on the floor and just hung off me.

‘I was actually crying with laughter looking in the mirror, I couldn’t believe how different the dress could be.

‘I ordered it in size small and most of the other items were okay, just a few every now and then aren’t true to size.

‘I’m 5ft 3, so not exactly tall but still, you would think it would have just been an inch or two longer.

‘I definitely sent it back.

‘You would think it was ordered from eBay when you read them horror stories.’

In pictures posted to Facebook, Caroline is shown standing in front of a mirror looking like she’s about to burst out laughing while the washed out, brown frock swamps her frame and touches the floor.

Caroline posted the fashion disaster onto Facebook last month, writing: ‘Boohoo fail. Can’t work out if I look like a sack of potatoes or a monk. Excuse the just woke up look.’

The material on the dress appears to be so big, it has ruched up all up the arms while hanging off Caroline’s frame.

Her post attracted dozens of likes and comments from social media users.

One wrote: ‘I’m crying’ alongside several crying with laughter emojis.

Another added: ‘That’s hilarious.’

‘Omg Caz you are making me wee here. What the hell is that? It’s not good,’ said another. 

‘Hahaha that’s brilliant chick! Should’ve known that model was 10ft tall, her knee-high boots give it away,’ wrote one.
