As if the prom night 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 - the prom 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! Cheap 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 epic fails of dresses by mending them; others opted out for Plan B - throwing the ordered dress to trash. Take this list of funny 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 disasters is truly hilarious.

Wait, what? Did they send it in pieces? Even if put together, it won't match the picture.

To be fair, this looks like the wrong size. Perhaps simple as that. Perhaps it would look good if it wasn't too big.

I do not see how this could be an appropriate dress for prom if it had come as it was supposed to. Not that I think it is wrong for women to show what they want, just these girls are 16-17. They need to be taught their beauty is more than sex appeal.
