OVER the past year, our emergency shapewear has really started burning a hole in our underwear drawers – and we can't deny it, wehaven't missed having to wiggle our ways into our Spanx.
Well if you'd like to still fake a flat tum in lockdown with zero effort, then you might want to take a leaf out of this mum's book.
Earlier this week, TikTok user Cassie was challenged by one of her 23,000 followers to stick a bit of cardboard down the front of her jeans.
They wrote: "I saw on YouTube some girl cut out a flap of cardboard box & put it over her [stomach] and it's like nothing was there, tried it and it worked!"
Rising to the challenge, Cassie filmed herself cutting out a piece of cardboard and placing it over her stomach.
After zipping up her jeans, the mum was amazed by the slim silhouette the cardboard created.
She wrote: "Ladies wait a minute… I think we got something!"
The video has racked up over half a million "likes" on TikTok and blew fans' minds.
While one fan joked that they'd be spending their gym membership money on cardboard from now on, another wrote: "This is genius!!"
A third joked: "If I learn one thing from TikTok, it's this and it'll be WORTH IT."
"Excuse me while I go cut up all my cardboard boxes," another replied.
