We’re all about women wearing whatever they want but sometimes we’re just left baffled by some of the things we see on the internet.

And it seems we’re not alone, because mums on Mumsnet have been left horrified by a Dresslily number, which just looks like ‘an accident waiting to happen’.

The dress in question is called the Lace-Up Open Back Bodycon Tank Dress, which one mum claims looks exactly like ‘a joint of pork’.

Online, the $18.14 dress is described as being extremely ‘sexy and alluring’.

“This mini bodycon dress featuring skin baring lace-up throughout the body, elastic fabric,” the description reads.

Looking at it, it’s hard to see exactly how you could actually go on a night out in it without unraveling at the slightest touch.

One reviewer on the site gave the dress five stars, and said it was “really sexy”.

However, the reviewer did contest that the dress is “a little hard to wear”.

Mums online agreed, with one person said she would look like “sausage meat stuffed in an orange net in that”.

Another person pointed out how the model looks like she’s ‘dangerously close to a wedgie’ and another person said it ‘reminds me of a joint of pork tied with string… probably not what they were going for’.
