Geek Fail

I was excited to order my Marie Curie T shirt from the Heroines of Science series at Think Geek

http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/womens/dda3/

The picture looks awesome. I love how it subverts the normal girl t shirt style, first glance you think the swirls are flowers and butterflies and shit, and the woman is probably a fairy or looking at shoes.

Something like this (first thing google found):

http://www.dorothyperkins.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=20552&storeId=12552&categoryId=154928&parent_category_rn=88619&productId=1756352&langId=-1

But then you look closer and see the swirls are chemical symbols and the woman has a flask. Awesome! Also the colour on the page looks awesome and it looks like a proper babydoll T from the picture.


So I was devastated to discover, that it was in fact on a lethargic pink Bella ‘babydoll’ which is an unflattering box shaped monstrosity made out of that godawful ribbed stuff that goes shapeless with a day.

Something like this

http://www.bella.com/short-sleeve-crew.html

scroll to ‘Berry’. It even looks like crap on the model!!!

To compound the problem, despite me owning several other Bella shirts in Medium (including another one from Think Geek http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/womens/a1ed/ ) the Medium seems to have doubled in size since the last time so its totally unwearable as the shoulder stick out an inch past mine. Humph. Its too much hassle to return it though, plus it was a 3 for 2 offer so I’m not sure I would get any money back. Hump

It’s a shame something that had the potential to be so awesome failed so spectacularly. 
