You won't be able to move your arms, you'll need a straw should you wish to drink anything, and it'll set you back $7000. Is this what fashion has come to in 2019?

According to fashion house Balenciaga, yes.

But it looks like many of us disagree. Shoppers have taken to social media to make fun of Balenciaga's newgreen box number, some calling it a "cushion dress".

And while stars such as Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid often rock the brand, it's hard to imagine they'll be donning this particular garment following the reactions online.

One savage shopper saying the dress should come with a sign saying: "Warning - you may be sat on".

"This is a disguise for introverts," said one online shopper, and another joked: "You sit on the couch at the party and everyone just thinks you're a throw pillow and doesn't try to talk to you."

The interesting ensemble comes in a deep emerald green colour made from double mat polyester satin.

In the product description, it says the frock is "draped, envelops the body," has a hooked closure and "no sleeves".

But a number of shoppers are less than impressed and haven't hesitated to express their opinion.

One person shared an image of the dress to Facebook saying: "Be there or be square," and another said: "They said I could be anything so I became a cushion".

Another questioned the functionality of the dress: "You need a long straw for your drinks."

Others were more critical. One asked: "What is the purpose of this? Is it intended to get people talking about the brand?

"Because I presume nobody actually buys clothes that look so hugely sh**."

While another added: "Hand me a bin bag!' They have so much more style."
