I had to walk home naked when my dress fell apart in a club, then the shop fat-shamed ME saying I should have 'sized up'

A CLUBBER was left humiliated after her dress fell to pieces on a night out forcing her to walk home naked – only for the retailer to "imply she was fat" by saying she should have bought a bigger size.

Destiny Campbell, 21, was forced to walk back to her hotel clutching her exposed boobs and with her thong on show after her dress suddenly fell apart on New Year's Eve.



Destiny, who's a size 10/12, quickly left the packed club and rushed back to her hotel while trying to protect her modesty, but said the only part of the dress that stayed intact was the neck.

The distraught 21-year-old paid £75 for the silver dress in a size medium from Sorelle UK back in November, and said she couldn't wait to wear it.

But when the sales and marketing consultant contacted Sorelle UK for a refund, she says she was further humiliated when the company told her she should have chosen the "size up".

Sorelle UK claimed that it was not deemed a manufacturing fault the dress had been "broken into many pieces" and photos show the customer "very happy" with her purchase on a night out prior to this occurring.

It was only once Destiny threatened to sue the company and expose them on social media that she was finally promised a full refund and she has been assured the dress will be discontinued.

Destiny, from Derby, said: "We went to the club and within an hour and a half my friend told me to look down and my boob was falling out of the dress.

"I was trying to hold the bottom bit so my boobs weren't coming out.

"All of a sudden the bottom skirt part came apart. Everything separated, I'm not exaggerating.

"My friend left the club with me and I was walking home basically naked, holding my boobs with my thong and bum hanging out.

"Men were approaching me and trying to touch me. I was in a strange city and I was vulnerable. It was awful, everyone would have seen. It was embarrassing and I felt humiliated."

Screenshots of messages exchanged between Destiny and Sorelle UK show the company state they don't accept returns for worn items.

The messages read: "This is a rhinestone dress that needs to be handled with care and it also needs to be a loose fit as per the pictures of all the models on our website, we would have suggested to choose the size up.

"It also doesn't just rip like that in so many pieces as it's not like that in the other photos.

"Unfortunately, this looks like it has been heavily handled with [sic] and we are unable to fix this."

Destiny told the brand: "Are you taking the p***? Do I look like a fat person? Oh my God. […] You have basically just called me fat which is so wrong.

"The dress broke apart from me trying to hold it all together as I was frantically running home so people would not see me naked.

"You as the supplier have a duty to make sure your dresses are constructed properly and with care. I am not an idiot and I know how to look after a delicate dress so do not insult me."

Men were approaching me and trying to touch me. I was in a strange city and I was vulnerable.

A Sorelle UK spokesman said: "We advised the customer as per all companies should that we would suggest getting a size up in this dress style as it is supposed to droop at the back as it has a cowl back like the models and all our customer photos which are tagged on Instagram.

"Unfortunately, we only go up to a size medium in this style of dress as it is very small sizing and that is all our supplier makes.

"The customer was obviously very happy with her purchase of the dress to receive it, take photos and wear it on NYE with no faults.

"A manufacturing fault would have been a rip up the seam but the dress was then pulled and broken into many pieces so this is not deemed as a manufacturing fault.

"However, we did provide the customer a full refund when this was escalated to a manager, the first few responses was a temporary customer service agent due to covid and apologised for any misunderstanding, we have also discontinued this dress due to this."

For more fashion fails, this shopper was baffled when she was sent a dress from In The Style and received a completely different item.

And this woman proved that that the Love Island underboob top doesn't work unless you have fake boobs.

Plus this woman suffered an awkward wardrobe malfunction on the London Eye and joked it was "doing me dirty".
