A young woman says she missed her friend’s Christmas party after claiming her boohoo clothing order made her look like a ‘melted glitter ball with extra long legs’.

Whilst searching for the perfect outfit for her friend’s party, Olivia Burroughs fell in love with a plus size glittery jumpsuit she found on the boohoo website and quickly added it to her basket.

However, when the item arrived she was left shocked and angry at what she saw, claiming it differed completely from the photograph online.

Trying on the outfit, Olivia was even more horrified and claimed she looked like a ‘melted glitter ball with extra long legs’.


Claiming she had no time to find a new outfit, the telecommunications worker decided to miss her Christmas party and stay at home.

Olivia, from Nottinghamshire, said: “I wanted an outfit for my friend’s Christmas party so decided to do my shopping on Black Friday to find a deal, and I did on boohoo.

“The jumpsuit was £24, but when it arrived I was shocked by what I saw.

“It was completely different to the photo on the website and left me looking like a melted glitter ball with extra long legs.

“I couldn’t believe the difference to the photo online, it was a real expectation vs reality of online shopping moment.

“I immediately kicked off and decided I wasn’t going to the party because of how my outfit looked – and it was too late for me to order anything else.

“It’s really put me off of ordering from boohoo because their sizes just aren’t right!

“I returned the item immediately and now I’m waiting for a refund.”
