‘It even has a tail’: Baffled Shein shopper receives a MONKEY costume instead of a brown bodysuit

  • Justine Byrne was mistakenly sent a monkey costume by online retailer Shein
  • She was baffled to receive it after ordering a chocolate brown bodysuit  
  • Shopper from Kilwinning, North Ayrshire, modelled the hysterical ensemble

A woman, 21, was left in stitches when – after ordering a chic, figure-hugging brown bodysuit – a monkey costume arrived in the mail.

Justine Byrne from Kilwinning, North Ayrshire, took to TikTok as she excitedly unpacked her new purchase on camera, only to be baffled as the first thing she saw pop out of the zip lock bag was a cartoonish tail.

‘What? What the f**k is this,’ the shopper exclaimed as she laughed in the clip, which has since amassed 1.2 million views. 

She then went on to model the item – from cheap retailer Shein – slipping into the hysterical ensemble.

‘Somebody is actually bamming me f**k up,’ she said, while slipping into the animal suit. ‘Wait ’til you see this.’

The pièce de résistance is an animated monkey face mask, which she pulled over her face, brandishing the outfit in its entirety.  

Facing the camera, she told viewers: ‘I just wanted a jumpsuit for going a walk. It’s got a tail as well.’ 

Justine posted the video yesterday, captioning the viral post: ‘I actually have no words for this.’

Commenters were absolutely delighted by the mix-up and the young shopper’s reaction, with some left ‘in tears’ of laughter.

‘Dying no way,’ one user wrote.

‘I can’t stop laughing,’ another added. 

A third penned: ‘Imagine this coming towards you when you’re walking first thing in the morning in the dark.’

Justine explained that she decided to film her reaction for friends, as she had been waiting for the outfit – currently retailing on the website for £11.49 – for quite some time. 

‘I had ordered the jumpsuit with other gym clothes a while ago to wear for going on my walks,’ she said today. ‘And the parcel was sent separate from the other items.’

The buyer says her initial confusion came as soon as she saw the tail.

‘When I saw the monkey face I couldn’t believe it,’ she added. ‘I tried it on because the whole thing is hilarious.’

It’s not the first time the brand went viral for a mishap, often being called out for presenting the product to look quite different to how it’s modelled.

In one instance earlier this year, a woman was surprised after ordering what she thought was a knee-length dress from Shein – but when it arrived it was a crop top that barely covered her stomach.
