We all see ads on Facebook and other websites advertising cheap clothing. But are these online boutiques really worth your hard-earned money?

Before you click, we've got a warning on how it might turn out.

Online dress shopping

Bridesmaids, prom goers, and women across the country are ordering discount dresses -- then ending up devastated when their dress arrives.

A new report by Women's Day magazine lists eight online dress sellers it says you should never order from:

  • Rosegal
  • Twinkledeals
  • Sammydress
  • Beckydress
  • Fashionmia
  • Dresslily

Why are these sites different from retailers like Kohl's, Macy's or Nordstorm? Those allow easy returns.

Most of these dress sites are located in China, and there's no cheap way to make a return.

Women report return shipping fees as high as $75, which is why the Better Business Bureau gives several of them an "F" rating.

The best advice -- Google any website that sells clothing before you buy from it. Check reviews and complaints, and if you find more than a handful, don't waste your money.
