A woman who was shamed for the ASOS dress she wore in her Tinder profile picture had the last laugh after the brand made her a model on its website.

Thea Lauryn Chippendale was left reeling after a man she matched with on the popular app unleashed on her saying, “that dress in the last photo is not doing any favours.”

The dress he branded a ‘charity shop job’ is actually a $120 lace midi dress from popular online retailer ASOS.

Now the company has weighed in on the controversy, uploading an updated listing for the dress which now features Thea’s picture.

“Swipe right to see who had the last laugh…” the tweet is captioned.

Thea was understandably delighted at the show of solidarity, retweeting the brand’s post and saying, “This is insane, thank you so much @ASOS.”

Social media users were thrilled with the brand’s take on the drama, with the post attracting over 20k likes and thousands of comments.

The support comes after Thea tweeted the original exchange, in which the man berates her mercilessly, calling her a ‘joke’ and weighing on on her style.

“Men are trash. (Included the pic he’s on about),” she wrote in the caption.

The screenshots blatantly show that her Tinder match, George, has absolutely no idea how to converse with another person online.

“Not gonna lie you’re a bit of a joke but that dress in the last photo is not doing any favours. Hope this helps,” he said, like it was no big deal.

Thea wrote back with a simple: “Excuse me?”

George went on to say “You heard!”, as if he was giving out some important information.

Now George has heard, with thousands of online stranger’s backing up the gorgeous student, and denouncing his attitude and heaping praise on Thea’s picture.

“Well I think you look stunning and everyone knows validation off another female is worth 100x more than a male,” one person said.

“His ex had that dress and wore it when she cheated on him. It's the only explanation here.

“PS. You're f*****g stunning x,” another person said.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you take down a troll.
