After shopping online, Lisa Williamson couldn’t wait for her order to arrive.
In preparation for a pole dancing workshop, the 28-year-old had purchased a “sexy Santa” outfit from eBay.
Sadly, her excitement was crushed when she received the item in the post.
To everyone’s amusement, the Edinburgh-based shopper received a product that looked nothing like the picture.
Mum-of-two Lisa snapped up a “one size fits all” playsuit for an affordable £6.98.
In promotional pictures, the faux fur-lined dress features a plunging neckline.
The velvet garment also boasts a hood and is nipped in at the waist with a thick black belt.
The product description promised that the item would be “so stretchy so you don’t need to worry about it being the exact size you need”.
While the item seems perfect for a cheeky Christmas night out, it’s not as pretty in person.
Lisa was disappointed that the product didn’t meet her expectations.
The festive trim didn’t look very impressive and the fit of the garment proved to be very tight at the crotch region
Thankfully, the shopper was soon able to see the funny side.
She recalled: “When I opened it up I instantly saw it was rubbish quality and I was a bit gutted because I’d been looking forward to getting it.
“Still, I thought I’d try it on anyway and found it hilarious how it looked.
“After that I took pictures and sent them to my friend Georgie, who told me I should post them on Facebook so I did to give other people a laugh.”
In the Facebook post, Lisa explained: “When your order arrives online and it’s nothing like you expected.
“Been looking forward to this coming for ages – but only thing that’s the same is the colour.”
Social media fans were amused by the unfortunate shopping fail.
Lisa said: “The majority of people who have seen and commented on my posts have found it funny and tagged their friends.
“A few said there’s no difference apart from the hood and some saying I need to get a bigger size or that it’s because of the shape of my body.”
Even though the customer hasn’t had the best experience, it hasn’t deterred her from making future purchases.
The seller has allowed her to keep the outfit, as well as reimbursing her with £2.
Lisa admitted: “I’d still shop online, but I’d be more careful with eBay.”
