A TikTok video from user ‘xojemian’ gained a lot of interest earlier this week as she flaunted her figure in a $32 "optical illusion" dress that dramatically pinched her in at the waist.

The influencer named Jem wore the ‘Mind Of My Own Maxi Dress’ from brand Fashion Nova in a video that quickly garnered millions of views.

Users were left shocked after watching the video, which saw Jem posing in the boldly printed dress that made her waist look inches smaller. The video, which has attracted nearly 2.7 million views, was shared with the caption ‘trying the viral waist illusion dress’.

TikTok users flooded the comments as they were left dazed and confused by the illusion that was created by tying a thick piece of fabric around the waist of the dress.

One user commented, “Girl it looked like you almost cut yourself in half for a second.”

Another person said “I couldn’t comprehend that for so long.”

Others were so impressed they exclaimed they couldn’t wait to try it for themselves.
