Revealed: Topshop’s £48 sell-out dress of the summer appears on eBay at almost DOUBLE the price – so did you snap one up?

  • The Topshop Cutabout Stripe Ruffle has sold out in every size in store and online 
  • The £48 dress has now appeared on eBay where it is listed at up to £85 
  •  It is highly likely the listings are the work of ‘fashion flippers’, who buy popular items in bulk and then list them online at hugely inflated prices

Topshop has become the latest high-street store to send shoppers into a frenzy with a so-called ‘it dress’.

The retailer has seen a yellow and white striped sundress sell out in every size both in store and online as customers scramble to get their hands on the trending product.

The polyester dress features a plunging neckline and a wrap style waistline giving it an ultra flattering fit.

And those that did manage to get their hands on the £48 Cutabout Stripe Ruffle are cashing in by selling the dress on eBay at almost double the price.

There are currently 11 listings on the auction site with prices ranging from £74-£85.

The dress is currently out of stock in all sizes online, having proved hugely popular among style enthusiasts

In many cases the sellers have the dress available in several if not all the sizes in order to secure a maximum profit. 

It is highly likely the listings are the work of ‘fashion flippers’, who buy popular items in bulk and then list them online at hugely inflated prices.

With international postage included, desperate shoppers will often pay up to three times the original price.

Describing the dress Topshop writes: ‘The midi dress gets a graphic update in a graphic yellow stripe.
