A PLUS-SIZED fashionista was left in tears after suffering a wardrobe malfunction while trying on her 21st birthday outfit.
Rachel Spicer, from Falkirk, regularly shares her clothing hauls and outfit choices with her 2.3 million followers on TikTok (@rachelspicer_).
The blonde beauty rose to fame on the social media app by showing off her two "dancing" chins and aims to help boost her followers' self-confidence.
She's spoken openly in the past about struggling with her figure but now inspires fans with messages of body positivity.
In a recent clip, the size 18 decided to have a clear out of her wardrobe to get rid of items that don't fit any more.
Rachel said: "I have realised and came to accept that I have gained weight, and it's not a bad thing.
"But I'm gonna tell you what is a bad thing and I don't think I'm the only one guilty of it."
Rachel then turns the camera around to show off her overflowing walk-in wardrobe rammed full of clothes.
"Welcome to my wardrobe", she said.
"It is always a mess because I've got far too many clothes, because I'm holding on to things that fitted me four years ago expecting to fit back in them.

The fashion fan used a pink velour co-ord she wore to her birthday four years ago as an example.
Trying it on, Rachel discovered it won't even zip up and almost flashed her bum.
She said: "I literally wore this for my 21st.
"I'm 25 now and let me tell you it wasn't even just snug it was just like, oh absolutely not.
"Not gonna lie I got emotional trying on things expecting them to still fit."
But she added: "It's just not healthy so this is your reminder that clothes are meant to fit you not the other way around and I honestly feel so much better having a clear out.
"I'm now no longer staring at clothes that do not fit me so if you're in the same boat as me stop being so hard on yourself."
Rachel's video has racked up more than 63,000 views and is already making an impact on social media users.
One said: "I feel so called out by this.. I have so many clothes that don’t fit but I feel emotionally attached to them."
A second wrote: "You helped me realise this. My Vinted is now full of clothes that were no longer serving me. Will find me buying new clothes that DO fit and make me."
