Shapewear has always let me down, but this brand is a game changer


A few years ago, I made a solemn vow to never wear shapewear again. It came after an awkward night of wearing underwear under a dress that, while perfectly fitted, was made of a tacky fabric, and I figured the underwear would be a seamless silhouette for me. How wrong I was. Instead of no VPL look I was hoping for, I found the areas where the shapewear was stopping, and my body was now starting to brag about bulges that weren’t there in the first place, making me unsure of things I was doing. was not worried before. The experience was enough to wear me out for life. That was until I started to hear the buzz growing around Skims underwear.

Designed by Kim Kardashian, Skims is the star’s own shapewear brand, offering nine different colors that include bodysuits, shorts, arm, bralettes, push-up bras, and more. And while I constantly see clichés of influencers in their Skims loungewear (which is epitome of chic), it’s the formwear in the line that commands the most hype. Just Google the term “Skims Shapewear” to see thousands upon thousands of rave reviews proclaiming it to be the most inclusive, diverse and efficient shapewear on the market. So much so that it is enough to pique my interest and to eclipse my cynicism.

Here’s how Skims describes the impetus behind the brand on its website: “Searching for the best underwear 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 tint. This led to her cutting and staining pieces at home, sewing them together to achieve the solutions and results she wanted. Skims is Kim’s answer to supportive clothing that actually works. Designed to smooth, lift, lift and tone – every room has a solution for everyone. “Sounds good, right?

Editors of Who wears what The American arm was among the first to try on Skims formwear when it was launched. Their verdict? “At first glance, they looked really intimidating and so small, so I was really nervous to try them out. However, they were surprisingly easy (for shapewear) to put on, ”explains the beauty editor. Sarah yang. “I thought there was going to be a lot of tugging and pulling and writhing in my body, but no! After putting them on I felt like I needed to catch my breath a bit because they were so tight. They definitely got the job done, though – smoothing everything out and vacuuming everything up. I’m not sure if I would be able to wear them all day (I can’t wear underwear all day), but for a few hours at an event or a party? I can handle that. “
