As if prom itself wasn't stressful enough, there are many things that girls have to figure out before attending it: makeup, hairstyle, shoes, accessories and the most important - dress.

These days it is really popular to shop for this last ingredient online. You can pretty much find whatever you want, you don't need to leave your house to find it, and somebody will even deliver it to your door! Shopping literally couldn't be any more convenient. Unless you decide to buy your prom dress online, that is. Because what looks good on the internet doesn't always look good in real life! Some of these unlucky prom-goers managed to save their dresses by mending them; others opted out for Plan B - throwing the ordered dress to trash. Take this list of prom dress fails as a cautionary tale.

From mermaid style dresses turned to blobfish, laces looking like grandma's doilies and a dress that turns you into a character from Handmaid's Tale, this compilation of online shopping fails is truly hilarious.

Simple solution - cut out the bra pods, wear a skin-tone bra and the dress is fine. Oh, and also stand straight, helps a lot.

I think the model is standing on a chair, so just get get to the prom early, stand on the first chair you see and don't move all night

Well, it's definitely a disappointment, compared to what you were promised and payed for, but it doesn't actually look that terrible.
