Apparently this was popular on reddit a while ago, but a woman who posted a picture of a dress with herself standing naked in the background also managed to spark a Twitter trend, and got the web buzzing. Sometimes that's all it takes.

According to the Huffington Post, the woman is from Oxfordshire, England, and accidentally uploaded the pic to eBay, despite going by the user name sugartit_2. Now, the picture is all over the web (including the Huffington Post and all over Twitter).

You really can't see much in the picture, despite the attention it has drawn. She's barely off to the side, and kind of in the shadows, so it's probably not as embarrassing as it could have been, though managing to make a Twitter Trend might make up for that, if in fact, this was an accident on "sugartit_2's" part.

Either way, Twitter seems to think it has been a good business move.

The trend even drew the attention of comedian Andrew Dice Clay:
