A woman seeking to flog an unwanted yellow dress via eBay has become an unwitting internet sensation in the process after unwittingly snapping herself with her pants down in a snap of the garment.

Sugart*t-2, an unidentified Oxfordshire blonde, unwittingly revealed a lot more than her dress after a full length mirror revealed her standing behind the camera wearing only a bra.

The slip made her an instant internet phenomenon however with the hash tag #ebayyellowskaterdresstrending within hours.

eBay pulled the plug on the ad before the sale ended but, undeterred, Sugart*t-2 returned for a second stab – this time fully clothed.

The listing now reads: “Asos yellow skater dress size 10, 2nd time round!! a MUST HAVE!!

“As seen by thousands. Never worn naked. Needs a good home.”

Proving the adage that sex sells however the modest dress attracted fake bids of up to £150k before being pulled a second time.
