Woman Orders Coat From Urban Outfitters And Gets A Shock When It Arrives
Shopping online is an absolute dream come true for those of us who prefer to be sat at home in a tracksuit with a glass of wine than braving ridiculous amounts of people in the pouring rain.
But there's just one tiny problem with it - you can't try before you buy.
Sure, you might think you know your sizes, but often things don't look quite the same as they did online when you actually try them on.
That's what one woman has experienced after buying what she thought was going to be a waist length puffer jacket from Urban Outfitters.

Unfortunately for her, it ended up being just a tiny little bit bigger than she'd anticipated.
Becky Latham posted a side-by-side comparison of what she bought from the retailer and what it actually looked like on her. On the model, it looks like a normal puffer jacket, but on Becky, it looks about three thousand sizes too big.
Writing on Twitter, the woman said: "Thank you @UrbanOutfitters it's exactly like I imagined."
It's been liked, shared and commented on by thousands of people, some of whom have been comparing her to different things

Becky's incident is a stellar example of how, sometimes, online shopping can go tits up.
That's what happened to Melissa Seaman, who thought she had found a bloody good deal on eBay for a kitchenware set. She thought she had stumbled upon a decent sized water jug and two glasses for just £1.79.
But this wasn't quite as straightforward as Melissa thought - the kitchenware she'd ordered was meant for a doll's house.
When the post arrived, the items stood at just two centimetres high, leaving Melissa with nothing better to do than laugh at herself.
The 23mm-high jug and 12mm-tall glasses are clearly too small to be used by humans, but they have found a home in her six-year-old daughter's doll house.
The full description online, which Melissa unfortunately didn't read, states the product as 'Jug With Lid & Two Glasses, Dolls House Miniature, 1.12th Scale, Drink, Kitchen'.
She said: "I just saw the picture and that it read 'jug with two glasses' for £1.79 which is an absolute bargain. I clicked on it straight away and thought nothing of it. When I opened the parcel, I was really confused.
"My first thought was that [my daughter] had ordered something off my eBay account for her dolls without me knowing - she's quite clever for a six-year-old."
She says she's definitely learned her lesson and she'll be sure to read the fine print, or even just the normal sized print.
