The INSIDER Summary:

  • - A 5-foot-2 woman ordered a pair of pants in her usual size from PrettyLittleThing, a popular online retailer.
  • - The pants turned out to to be the length of her entire body.
  • - "When Pretty Little Thing [sic] think [sic] I have legs like Kendal [sic] Jenner," she tweeted, alongside a picture of the pants.
  • - PrettyLittleThing is looking into the situation.

When you go online shopping, it's hard to truly know how your clothes will fit, as clothing sizes are hardly standardized. Bethany McNamara, a 5-foot-2 hairdresser, was certainly surprised when a pair of pants in her normal size from PrettyLittleThing spanned the length of her whole body, which we first spotted on Yahoo Style.


Luckily, it seems that the 18-year-old has a sense of humor about the situation. "When Pretty Little Thing [sic] think [sic] I have legs like Kendal [sic] Jenner," she tweeted alongside the picture.

"I shop at PrettyLittleThing a lot. I love their clothes and always go to them when I need an outfit for a night out. When I opened the parcel, I picked the trousers up and I did think they were a bit long but I put them on anyway. I didn’t think they would be as big as they actually were.” McNamara told Caters new agency

The Manchester, UK, woman's October 3 tweet hasn't quite gone viral, but her friends have commended her for sharing her experience.


The "Red Zebra Slinky Flared Trousers" are still for sale on PrettyLittleThing for $35.

For what it's worth, McNamara's experience seems to have been a fluke. The pants should have only been 33.5 inches long, according to the product description on PrettyLittleThing's website.

In a statement released to Yahoo Style, a spokesperson for PrettyLittleThing said the company was looking into the situation: "We take anything like this seriously and will investigate into this specific case, as well as investigating with any suppliers involved in this style along with our quality control department."

As for McNamara, she's just glad to have gotten rid of the pants.

"They looked like something Simon Cowell would wear. They must think I have legs like Kendall Jenner or a supermodel," she told Caters. "They are already on their way back to the shop."

INSIDER has reached out to McNamara and PrettyLittleThing for comment.
