I'm a fashion fan & couldn't believe it when my PLT trousers arrived, they're the length of my ENTIRE body | The Sun
WE all know that feeling of excitedly waiting for new clothes, only for them not to fit once they arrive.
Well, this happened to Sophie Pelham, 28, from Essex, who ordered a pair of cargo wide leg trousers from PrettyLittleThing.
With the website stating that the model in the product photographs was 5’5”, 5ft 3 Sophie ordered a pair thinking they’d likely fit her fine.
However, on the item’s arrival, she quickly realised that this was certainly not the case.
Speaking exclusively to Fabulous, Sophie says: “Either I'm shrinking or PLT is way off. I'm 5ft 3 and these are literally the length of my whole body.”
Continuing, the fashion fan adds: “I regularly order from PLT Shape at 5ft 3 I find the fit is usually great, I've got tons of cargos from PLT before and was shocked when I opened these.

Sophie says she triple-checked that she hadn’t accidentally ordered from PLT Tall, but this turned out to not be the case, causing further confusion.
“If that model is 5ft 5 I am 6ft 2” joked Sophie.
One the PrettyLittleThing website the measurements read that the trousers are approximately “86.5cm/34" (Based on a sample size UK 8).”
