Mortified mother discovers £18 PrettyLittleThing onesie she ordered is so small it exposes her breasts – and jokes her teenage son would ‘disown her’ if she wore it
A mother was left in hysterics after trying on a PrettyLittleThing onesie that left her breasts entirely exposed.
Lindsey Smith, 39, of Aldershot, Hampshire, bought the £19 size 10 grey onesie to wear while snuggling up on the sofa with her husband and three sons.
But she was left red-faced when she tried the all-in-one suit on at home and found it was much tighter than it looked on the model – and she couldn’t tie the buttons across her chest.

The onesie looked far roomier and comfortable in the image on the PrettyLittleThing website, above, and Lindsey hoped it would be perfect for lounging at home
She joked her teenage sons would ‘disown her’ if she ever wore the revealing garment at home.
She said: ‘I literally couldn’t do one button up and I was all hanging out. It’s not great when you live in a house with four men – my husband and three sons.
‘It was so disappointing but I did laugh too as you’ve got to find the funny side. It said it was a size 10, but it definitely wasn’t. It felt more like a size six.
‘I thought “I’m going to show them exactly what it looks like” and took a picture and sent it to them.’
Lindsey ordered the onesie in November when she spotted what appeared to be the perfect choice for cosy nights in.
But her excitement soon turned to disappointment when she realised how small it was.

After contacting PLT (pictured), Lindsey received a full refund, but is still on the lookout for the perfect outfit to relax in this autumn
Lindsey said: ‘I love pyjamas and decided to treat myself to it as it looked nice and comfortable.
‘I was doing a lot of running at the time and I ran the whole length of Great Britain in four months, which was really tough. That day I thought “I’ll have a nice bath after a long run and jump in my onesie”.
‘I had my bath but when I opened the onesie up I remember thinking “gosh it looks small, I don’t think this is going to fit”.
‘I decided to give it a little go, as you do, and it was so tight. As I was trying to get the top bit on I did think “this isn’t going to happen”. Getting it off was the hardest.’
After contacting PLT Lindsey received a full refund, but is still on the lookout for the perfect outfit to relax in this autumn.
Lindsey said: ‘I messaged PLT on Facebook and complained about it. I don’t usually complain but I thought that I had to this time. They were really understanding and professional and sorted out a refund straight away.
‘I’m still looking for that perfect onesie, there’s not many of them around these days.’
PrettyLittleThing said that as the issue had been resolved they wouldn’t be making a comment.
