Woman Makes ‘Waist Disappear’ With Optical Illusion Dress Which Is Branded ‘Creepy’

A woman took to TikTok to show off her optical illusion dress from Fashion Nova which makes it look as though her “waist disappears”, yet fans have branded it “creepy” and say she looks like she “tied her organs together”. 

TikTok user @X0jem has shared a video of herself wearing a £30 dress from fashion retailer Fashion Nova called Mind Of My Own Maxi Dress and has baffled followers, as it looks as though her waist disappears.

The multi-tonal brown dress’s tie waist feature has been branded “genius engineering” as it gives the “crazy illusion” of an extremely tiny waist when done up.

In awe of her new dress, Jem demonstrated in a clip she shared on TikTok how she achieved the “snatched” look. By pulling the two pieces of material tightly together and then tying them into a knot, she creates the impression of having a super tiny waist.

Joking, she captioned the post: “Looks like I tied my organs together.”

Many of those that have watched the clip has admitted it has left them “confused” as to how it creates such an illusion.

One person commented: “Umm I’m scared actually…. looks a bit creepy.”

Another added: “I am so confused.”

Jem then responded to this comment and said: “Imagine my face when I first put it on. I was looking at it sideways.”

While a third gushed: “Genius engineering.”

A fourth viewer said: “EXCUSE ME ORDERING NOW.”

The Mind Of My Own Maxi Dress is still available to order online from Fashion Nova in sizes XS to 3X if you fancy treating yourself.
