Dear Sir or Madam, 

I recently ordered several dresses from your online store and I have an issue with the purchase. I ordered the empire waisted maxi, in a navy blue, and two wrap dresses, in both maroon and black. All of the dresses were supposed to be size mediums. 

Unfortunately, when the dresses arrived I noticed several issues with the purchase. The empire-waisted maxi arrived in the correct color but it was a size extra large instead of the medium that I ordered. This dress is much too large. As for the wrap dresses, both were the correct size but each had their own issues. The maroon wrap dress had a hole in the shoulder seam and looked like it had been previously worn. I did not receive the black wrap dress; instead, a green one came in the package. 

I need these issues rectified immediately because these dresses were supposed to be part of my work wardrobe for my new job. I begin this job in only seven days; I need you to send me replacement garments today, so that I can have them in time.
