A fashionista has left thousands scratching their heads with an 'optical illusion' dress that makes the waist look inches smaller than it really is. 

An influencer named Jem sparked stunned responses after wearing the $32 AUD/$22.99 USD 'Mind Of My Own Maxi Dress' from Fashion Nova on TikTok.

In a now-viral video, the brunette poses in the boldly printed frock before tying a thick piece of fabric tightly around her waist.

A fashionista has left millions scratching their heads with an 'optical illusion' dress that makes the waist look inches smaller than it really is.

The video, which has racked up 2.6 million views since it was posted online on October 10, sparked stunned responses.

'I couldn't comprehend that for so long,' one person wrote.

'Girl it looked like you cut yourself in half for a second,' said another, while a third added: 'Am I drunk or...?'

According to the Fashion Nova website, the outfit is not intentionally designed to snatch the waistline

Others raved about the slimming illusion and said they couldn't wait to buy the dress themselves. 

'I need this!!' one woman said.

A second added: 'Need that kind of magic in my life.' 

A product description on Fashion Nova's website suggests the outfit is not intentionally designed to snatch the waistline, but many were unconvinced. 

A similar style is also available on Shein for $26.95 AUD/$19.99.
