Women on social media are showing how slim they are by comparing their waists to the width of a sheet of paper.
They're calling it an "A4 waist," a reference to the A4 paper size, which is a little over 8 inches wide. People first started doing it in China, but now it's spreading to other countries.
And not surprisingly, there are critics. Some are calling it unrealistic and even disturbing.
