There are a lot of pros and cons to shopping online. Although it is more convenient and usually a much wider selection, you're not able to try the garment on or see how it looks in person until you actually receive it a few days later (sometimes even weeks). What's worse than receiving clothes that don't fit or don't look like what you were expecting: the returning process. It's even worse if the garment you bought was for a special occasion, like prom.

A lot of the times, purchasing online isn't too bad. Unfortunately, that was not the case for the following girls who were hoping to look like princesses on the biggest night of their high school life.
