ORDERING clothes online can often be pretty hit and miss.
While you might like the look of something in the online picture, when it arrives, it can sometimes be a completely different story.

A plus-size woman named Raven, known on TikTok as ImSoRaven, where she has amassed 20.4k followers and 225.5k likes, was thrilled when she heard that online retailer Shein had extended their curvy size range.
Fashion fan Raven ordered a huge haul of clothes from Shein, all in the largest size available and took to the video sharing platform to share her thoughts on her new buys.
But Raven was left with mixed reviews with her haul – although she liked a couple of the tops, one skirt was completely see-through and she described one dress as looking like a “hospital gown.”
She said: “This is my first Shein order. I recently heard that Shein extended their plus-size/curvy section.
“I know the sizing on there can be a little bit odd so I ordered the largest size in everything they had.
“First up we have this stripe colour block tee in this salmon colour. I thought this was super cute and would be work appropriate. I like this and I will be keeping this.
“I don’t know if neon lime is my colour. I’m not sure what this does for me. It could be fun on the weekend.
“This is a striped tee with a ring lock detail tee in light pink. I’ll probably keep it.
“I really wanted to like this one but I was concerned about the ruffle hem on the website and it looks like I was right, this part does not stretch and so it does not sit on my hips or my backside right. I actually like the top part of it, I really like the colour of it, but unfortunately this will not be a keep.
“I’m going to need a second opinion on this top, I was trying to do a cute, fun, floral vibe, but I don’t know. Let me know what you think about this top and what I would pair it with if I kept it.
“That’s the last of the shirts. Unfortunately this skirt is completely see through. I would not walk out of my house wearing this, so it’s pointless and a little disappointing.
“I didn’t realise that I purchased both the skirt and the dress and I don’t think that the dress is as see through as the skirt, but the straps are way too loose. Little disappointing.
“This is the last item and yes it fits comfortably, the problem is that when I ordered this dress I thought it was a white or off-white dress but imagine my surprise when I opened the package and it was yellow stripes.
“This looks like a hospital gown on me, I can’t wear this. It is very unfortunate and again, very disappointing. I can’t keep this, this does not look good.”
Raven’s video has clearly impressed many, as it has quickly racked up a whopping 521.3k views.
It has 37k likes, 1,540 comments and 273 shares.
Many TikTok users loved Raven’s new buys and took to the comments to express this.
One person said: “I honestly love the yellow stripe. I may go buy that one.”
Another added: “The neon green looks great on you!”
A third commented: “Love the green floral!!!! Such a pretty summer shirt!”
Whilst someone else noted: “I’m plus size and it’s nice to see someone on here dress for their appropriate size instead of 4 sizes too small and think it looks great.”
