Hi, i recently sold a size 12 alannah hill corset top for $20 on ebay. I bought this top for approx $179 a couple of years ago & have never worn it so I decided to sell it.
Buyer bought top - I sent top to buyer with some extra free stockings & hairclips I had lying around - as at the moment I am having a major declutter. (& always try to be nice)
Then today I get an email from the buyer saying the boning of the corset digs into her when she wears the top because the seams are worn.
1. I know for a fact that the seams are not worn because that top has come from my wardrobe UNWORN EVER
2. I had a look at the buyer's history and recently she has been selling size 12 & 14 alannah hill clothes on ebay, because & I quote '24/10/09 size 14 alannah hill cardi - 'Unfortunately is a tad too small now (added lots of weight :0( )'
24/10/09 size 12 doll parts alannah hill top 'Was one of my faves but alas it's all about the weight! :0( This top doesn't allow for much change in that department, it is a true size 12. It does have slight stretch but not enough for comfort if like me you begin to REALLY enjoy those lunches with the girls!! ;0)'
Now, if size 12 & size 14 alannah hill clothes do not fit her because she has put on weight - why did she buy a size 12 top from me?
My theory is that the boning is digging into her because it is too small for her & not because there is anything wrong with the top.
But what should I reply to her? - I obviously can't say 'it's your fault you're too fat' even saying 'I note that you have recently been selling size 12 & 14 alannah hill clothes because they are too small for you' is likely to be inflammatory.
any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!
