At some point, we've all seen an a dress on a model and thought to ourselves, "I need to have that!" Sometimes the drive to purchase said outfit is so great that we don't even take a moment to try it on. Online shopping has made this impulsive buy-before-thinking mode of shopping even more commonplace and this has lead to some serious problems.

In some cases, the outfit is exactly what you had hoped it would be and for a moment everything in the universe is perfect. In other cases, the outfit is not at all as advertised and upon trying it on and looking in the mirror, the ghastly reflection of what you see is so brutal that you have no other choice than to burn the purchase. The following 12 women didn't get what they bargained for with these dresses that didn't quite fit like they did on the models.

1. It didn't look so paper baggy on the model. Her expression says it all.

2. This discount prom dress fits like a glove. Actually, more like a raggedy old mitten that's been terribly stretched.

3. This customer wasn't satisfied with her eBay purchase from China but I can't see a difference.
