Kim Kardashian West has already taken over your makeup collection with her KKW Beauty empire, but now she’s gunning for your underwear drawer. Today, she launched Skims, a new brand of shapewear offered in nine different colors that include bodysuits, shorts, bras, bralettes, push-up bras, and more. The prices start at $18 and cap out at $98, and the sizes range from XXS to 5XL. Now that we have the basics out of the way, it’s time for the real test: What do real women think of it? Well, I got my hands on the items before they launched and tasked five of my co-workers to try them out and let me know what they thought.
Before we get to our reviews, here’s how Skims describes the impetus behind the brand on its website: “Searching for the best shapewear and underwear over the years, Kim became frustrated with the lack of options available and couldn’t find anything that offered the right support, coverage or shade,” the Skims website reads. “This led her to cut up and dye pieces at home, sewing them together to get the solutions and results she wanted. Skims is Kim’s answer to shapewear that actually works. Designed to smooth, enhance, lift and tone – each piece has a solution for every body.” Scroll down to see what six Who What Wear staffers thought of the items.
