People always get overly excited for online shopping, and half of the excitement is due to the anticipation and waiting to get that package in the mail. The other half is due to the spontaneous action of ordering an item you haven’t even seen in real life.
With each online purchase you’re taking a risk, because your purchase can be exactly what you wanted, or it can be a complete disaster and nothing like the image on the internet.
Read on to find out some of the most ridiculous online shopping fails that will traumatize you from shopping on the internet for a bit of a while.
1. Snake Belt: Always look at the item reviews. Here’s a pretty realistic looking snake belt, and that’s what the customer expected to receive when they placed the order.
Instead, they got a belt that could be mistaken for a child’s toy from the local store.
2. Bathing suits: Online shopping for bathing suits is a tricky one because a bikini is really something that should be tried on in person before purchasing. The material, the look and the way it stands on your body is all subjective to the purchaser, so it’s really hard to make the purchase with confidence that it will be a good one.
This person was not the subject to such luck, as the bikini top looks absolutely nothing like the one in the picture. The entire sexy ambiance of the outfit was completely destroyed the minute she put the bathing suit top on, and it’s not so much her fault as it is the manufacturers.
