Everyone loves a bargain; so if you saw a $1 prom dress you’d likely snap it up, even if you didn’t have anywhere to wear it. For less than the price of coffee, you can own a ballgown fit for any fancy event – and then blow the rest of your budget on champagne/a limo/YouTuber merch. Sounds amazing, right? Well, think again; because if these YouTubers’ experiences are anything to go by, then cheap eBay prom dresses are not the way forward….
Prepare to hear some pretty bad horror stories.
Bethany Leigh – Trying On $1 Prom Dresses
Bethany ordered three cheap eBay prom dresses; and the results varied from dreadful to outright gross. As well as being ripped off and sent a literal tiny piece of cloth, one of the dresses also had blood on it. If your gag reflex can stand it, click play on the video below.
Millie T – Trying On $3 Prom Dresses
Millie had a major problem with every one of these dresses – they were all either see through or showed way too much skin. To see the results, check out the video.
Ayexmadeline – Trying On $5 Prom Dresses
Surprisingly, the $5 prom dresses are a lot better; and you could absolutely alter some of these and wear them to prom. Check out the black and blue one, which we think looks stunning.
Katie Betzing – Trying on $5 eBay Dresses
As well as cheap prom dresses, this video also features some summer dresses Katie bought on eBay. Whilst one floaty white dress looked promising, there was a very gross twist…
Beautyqueen18 – Trying on Amazon Prom Dresses
Who knew Amazon did prom dresses? Unlike Bethany Leigh’s experience of $1 prom dresses from eBay, this experience goes a lot better. This video proves that sometimes it really is worth taking a chance on a too-good-to-be-true bargain.
