Manchester girl’s trousers from PLT are length of her body

The 5ft 2in hairdresser from from Salford, Manchester, shared a picture of the flares online, writing: ‘When Pretty Little Thing think I have legs like Kendall Jenner’.

She was comparing herself to leggy model Kendall, who is reportedly 5ft 10in – much to the amusement of her friends.

A teenager was forced to tell a fashion brand that she does not have ‘legs like Kendall Jenner’ after ordering a pair of trousers online – only for them to be the length of her entire body.

Bethany McNamara, 18, ordered the trousers ready for a night out on October 7 but was stunned to discover the waistband of the high-waisted flares managed to reach up to her chin.

Bethany admitted: ‘Sometimes I think I should just stick to wearing skirts on nights out but it’s winter now. It is too cold to be wearing skirts, I need something covering my legs’

The ‘ridiculously long’ trousers were swiftly sent back, as Bethany feared she would have been left ‘looking like Simon Cowell’ – who is famously fond of a baggy flare – if she went out wearing them.

Bethany said: ‘I shop at Pretty Little Thing a lot. I love their clothes and always go to them when I need an outfit for a night out.

‘I ordered the trousers last week and when they arrived I went straight to try them on.

‘Sometimes the sizing can be off so normally I order a couple but this time I just ordered a size 8.

‘When I opened the parcel, I picked the trousers up and I did think they were a bit long but I put them on anyway. I didn’t think they would be as big as they actually were.

The ‘ridiculously long’ trousers from Pretty Little Thing were swiftly sent back, as Bethany feared she would have been left ‘looking like Simon Cowell’ if she went out wearing them

‘At first I thought I would try them with some heels but there was still too much material past my feet at the bottom.

‘I did consider getting them taken up but they are a flare so the trousers would lose their shape.’

She added: ‘I took them off and held them up against me to see just how long they were. When I put them against my body I couldn’t believe that they actually reached my chin.

‘They looked like something Simon Cowell would wear. They must think I have legs like Kendall Jenner or a supermodel. They are already on their way back to the shop.

The hairdresser revealed: ‘When I opened the parcel, I picked the trousers up and I did think they were a bit long but I put them on anyway. I didn’t think they would be as big as they actually were’

‘I just ticked that they were too big on the return form, maybe I should have explained that they were ridiculously long.’

After sending the trousers back, Bethany had to search for a new outfit for her night out and says she may consider sticking to skirts from now on.

‘Sometimes I think I should just stick to wearing skirts on nights out but it’s winter now. It is too cold to be wearing skirts, I need something covering my legs.

‘I also struggle with playsuits too as every one I buy just never fits. They’re always too long but I can sometimes solve it by wearing heels.’

A spokesperson from Pretty Little Thing said: ‘We take anything like this seriously and will investigate into this specific case, as well as investigating with any suppliers involved in this style along with our quality control department.’
