A woman has found a bargain occasion dress from a five pound store that she says was too good not to share.
All too often we see stories of occasion dresses bought online going horribly wrong – the bargain seems too good to miss but they arrive and fit awkwardly.
In this case, a shopper has succeeded in buying an affordable dress, only £5.25 from the online store everything5pounds, and shoppers agree that she looks great.
The dress is a light blue in a satin style material with an off the shoulder design and sparkly waistband and makes her feel like a Disney princess.
After posting her photos in a money-saving Facebook group hundreds of people reacted and said the dress looks better on her than on the model.
Even the most budget-friendly occasion dresses can cost five times the amount this shopper spent making it a real bargain.
The original post from the savvy shopper said: “I bought the dress and I LOVE IT -deffo needs ironed but I’m scared of melting it- just casually gonna spend the day being a princess
“Thought this was too good not to share -this dress is £5.25 and a few sizes available – might be good for someone with a wedding or prom coming up
“At that price, I’m tempted to get one just to potter around in my house as it’s giving me Cinderella vibes
“Ohh and you can use Clearpay too”

Aside from hundreds of compliments on the dress, some people lefts handy tips for getting the creases out of dresses with delicate materials.
One shopper said: “That’s gorgeous who wouldn’t want to spend a Saturday wearing this dress eating junk food and catching up on the soaps.”
Another said: “That’s a gorgeous dress definitely handy for someone on a budget and it looks much more expensive than £5 plus if your clever you could customise it bling it up etc x”
A more creative member of the group said: “It’s worth buying even to make into a shorter dress and add some ruffles etc”
“Hang it in the bathroom while you are having a shower, the steam should help the wrinkles drop out,” said another.
Another person suggested using a protective layer: “Sandwich it between a sheet or pillowcase when you iron it, will protect the fabric and give it a more gentle iron.
A shopper who shops at the same store said: “It’s from everything for five pounds, I can’t believe they have such dresses, I used to by leggings and trousers for work.”
Another said: “Great dress, great bargain, Iron it using a tea towel to protect it.”
