So many people could relate to the comically long pair of trousers this woman bought online

Too long by half.

WHEN GOOD ONLINE shopping goes bad it can be quite hilarious.

Scottish Twitter user @psychedelime discovered that this week, when she ordered a pair of red flares in size six from PrettyLittleThing.

They looked really good on the website, to be fair

As the description says:

In ultra-soft and comfortable jersey fabric, these simple but sleek flared trousers are essential for your wardrobe. Dress up with a pair of platforms for a 70s inspired look or down with some crisp white trainers to keep it cool and minimal.

It doesn’t mention anything about length in there.

But when they arrived she discovered that length was very much an issue
