As someone who’s been watching
Keeping Up With the Kardashians since season 1, (and is currently rewatching—thanks Hulu!) I’ve always believed Kim Kardashian to be a genius. Not many agreed with me for some time but when she released her stellar line of shapewear, people finally started to see what I was talking about. Celebrity brands can often be a hit or a miss, but everything I’ve tried thus far from Skims has exceeded every expectation. Sizing and fit varies for everyone, so I thought I’d ask my coworkers to try on some of the brand’s best sellers and share our honest reviews.
From cotton bras to cozy sweatsuits, we’ve taken a variety of pieces out for a test run. We even shared our favorite tried-and-true Skims, so you can shop the items we’ve kept for the long haul. Keep scrolling to see all of our pictures and reviews—you’re in for a treat. Once you become a Skims girl, there’s no turning back.
Bra Size: 36B. Size Tried: Medium. Review: “Like wearing a cloud—that’s how I’d describe this Skims set. I thought I knew comfy loungewear before the cozy collection came into my life but it turns out I was wrong. Cozy doesn’t even cut it, the texture makes it feel like you’re being enveloped in a warm hug and has been my at-home uniform lately during a particularly cold and snowy bout of NYC winter. While I’ve been wearing the two pieces as a set for the most part, the baby tee is giving me a ’90s feel so I want to style it on its own with some high-waisted denim, too.”
Bra Size: 32B. Size Tried: Small. Review: “I’ll be the first to admit that I love SKIMS. For real, if anyone mentions the brand, I’ll immediately go into a monologue about the Fits Everybody thong and their T- shirts that feel like air. I even willingly tested out the Waist Trainer on a 90-degree day for a story—and was thoroughly impressed. Knowing that, when I tried out the Cotton Mock Neck Tank and matching Cotton Rib Boxers, I had high expectations. For starters, I loved the fabric on both pieces, with one being a super soft, standard cotton material and the other a ribbed fabric. They both hugged my body in a really nice way as well, while simultaneously smoothing over any bra- or underwear-related bumps. That being said, I wasn’t a huge fan of the waistband on the boxers, which is what I thought I would love most about them. While it is a cute touch, it made the boxers quite uncomfortable for long-term wear, making me less interested in wearing them to bed (the exact time I planned to wear them most). As for the tank, my only complaint would be the way it is cut in the under-arm area. I think if the chest on the shirt was slightly wider, it would be a bit more flattering in that spot.”
Size Tried: Medium. Review: “It’s the dead of winter and if you’re anything like me, there’s been a lot more time spent at home than you’re used to. I’ve been using this set as a starting player in my hibernation lineup and it’s been amazing. The fabric is so soft and cozy and when you live alone sometimes you just need to wear something that feels like a warm hug. Accurately dubbed the cozy collection, it’s honestly lived up to its name. My only complaint is that the fit on the bra was a bit weird for me since I have a bigger bust. In the future, I’d match the pants with my colleague Katie’s tee.”
“I bought this dress in black and it is probably the most well-traveled piece in my wardrobe. I’ve taken it everywhere from bars in New York City to bedtime during my trips to Los Angeles. Having a dress that is both a going out look and a pajama piece is a first for me and honestly, I’m loving it. Sleeping in a dress is the next best thing to sleeping naked and since this one feels like a second skin I can’t tell the difference.”
Bra Size: 32DDD. Size Tried: Medium “When I first opened this set, I thought that the pants were definitely going to be too long on me, but they actually fit really well. I’m typically a medium, and this S/M set fits me really well. It feels like I’m wearing a fuzzy sock all over my entire body. It’s both cozy and cute, making it the perfect loungewear to hang out in.”
“I was skeptical about buying a bralette at first because I have a larger chest (I’m a 32DDD) but this bralette has pleasantly surprised me. It holds everything up and is so comfy.”
“This bra was such a great purchase. It offers support while still being really comfortable—a perfect everyday bra.”
Bra Size: 36B. Size Tried: Small. Review: “Super soft and cozy, this bralette is so comfy to wear around the house. I love pairing it with some black leggings for the ultimate lounging look. It’s stretchy and fits true to size (I’m 36B and I got the S/M). Bring on the fuzzy vibes!”
Review: “I love this essential tank—it works so well with jeans and hugs my body in the best way possible (without it feeling too tight!). The jersey material is soft yet still a bit structured. I want more of these in every color offered!”
Size Tried: Small. Review: “In the cold winter, this top is what I want to be wearing 24/7. It has a slight loose fit and feels like a cloud. This, like all the other cozy pieces are hand-wash which would be my only “con”.
Kim Kardashian truly did her thing with this dress. It will most definitely flatter anyone.
I’ve never been one to lounge in robes, but that was before I got ahold of this one.
I’ve tried a lot of pajama sets, and have been disappointed many times. Many of them shrink in the wash or rip, but this one has been nothing but stellar. 100% worth the investment.
I hate wearing bras and wish I could never wear one again. For comfy days, this is the bra I opt for. It’s extremely stretchy, soft on the skin, and gives support without me feeling like I’m being suffocated.
It’s hard to find an underwire bra that not only gives you optimal support but is also comfortable, but this bra does both jobs.
