A TEENAGER ordered what she believed to be a stunning purple mesh dress from Shein after seeing over 700 rave reviews.

What she got, however, paled in comparison to the product photos.

Ellie Marie, 17, posted a TikTok video revealing what she actually got from the online retailer.

The TikTok displays the product page for a sparkly, flouncy, mesh purple dress, £21.99 ($23), as advertised by Shein. 

The dress is fitted and cut above the knee, with no patterns and sheer matching sleeves.

The reviews for the dress signal no red flags, as many other shoppers left positive testimonials.

With a photo attached of a similar flouncy dress in white, one reviewer wrote, “This dress makes you look and feel like a princess.”

Another reviewer had ordered the dress for a special event and wrote.

“Cute dress…ordered it for my Disney trip which to me looked like a princess dress. love the color and sparkle,” they wrote.

“The dress honestly looks even better in person,” confirmed another reviewer.  “It makes you look and feel like a princess.”

The TikTok video, however, revealed that Ellie received a product completely different from what everyone else had gotten.

Hers looked to be made with cheap material and wasn’t sparkly – but it did have a floral pattern.

It was longer than the one pictured online, though the sleeves were shorter and the neckline was a different shape.

Most importantly, the dress looked nothing like what she had ordered.

“Oh god, I think they gave you a completely different product,” said one commenter.

“Always look at the reviews,” advised another commenter, despite the dress’ plentiful five-star reviews.
