An unnamed eBay seller from Oxfordshire has attracted bids well over £150,000 for her yellow ASOS skater dress after accidentally uploading a nude photo of herself to the auction site.
The initial asking price was just £15.99, but numbers started to climb rapidly after word got out that the woman’s half-naked body appears in one of the photos ostensibly showing off the dress.

And sure enough, the clueless auctioneer’s bottomless figure can clearly be seen in the reflection of a mirror just behind the clothing. The Twitter hashtag #ebayyellowskaterdresssoon began to trend in the UK, leading some to call shenanigans on the whole thing.
Somehow the eBay posting found its way to Twitter, where it began trending with the hashtag #ebayyellowskaterdress.
But sugartit_2 took the whole thing in stride: she pulled the original eBay auction then re-listed the dress as “asos yellow skater dress size 10. a MUST HAVE” with a nearly identical photo… except in this one, she’s wearing a black parka. The new product description reads: “#ebayyellowskaterdress as seen by thousands. never worn naked. Needs a good home.”
