The Review Rundown:
I wasn’t sure I was really going to be into SKIMS (Kim Kardashian’s official shapewear and fashion line). It’s not that I’m not a fan of Kim Kardashian, but I almost felt like this would be a trick and it would only look good on her. While I hate to admit when I’m wrong, alas, I am wrong. SKIMS is actually pretty amazing, it’s sort of comfortable to wear and, yes, I do feel like an honorary Kardashian when I wear it.
One of the first pieces that I purchased online at SKIMS was the Sculpting Bodysuit (the one with the snaps). I’ve tried others in the past and most of them felt like I couldn’t breathe. Not only could I totally breathe in this one, but it held things in in all the right places, lifted things where they needed to be lifted, and was soft and seamless which made it more comfortable to wear. I got one in my size, but they recommend to go a size up if you want to wear it for every day all day use.
Outside of this magical bodysuit, I was actually surprised to see some of the other stuff that they carried that had nothing really to do with shapewear at all. For example, they have comfy slippers “slides” in about 4 different colors, all sorts of pajamas and robes I basically live in, and even some cute options for your kids. Yes, there really is a SKIMS Kids. Don’t worry, it’s just cozy little hoodies, tanks and pants.
The only thing I really haven’t tried yet, and I’m not sure I will, is their waist trainers. A lot of people swear by them, but I’m not sure I really am ready to try and train my body into that hourglass shape. But if that’s for you, you do you, boo.
I’m really happy, so far, with my SKIMS purchases and even found a couple of fun gift ideas for my best friend who already has everything. I wish they had a monthly subscription box option because that could really get fun. Only time will tell!
These are a Few of Our Favorite Things:
Are you ready to take the plunge into SKIMS, but not sure where to actually start? It can seem a bit overwhelming, but I got you! I’ve listed out some of my faves and some of the most popular items so you know where to start:
- Their Latest + Most Popular Shapewear – Check It Out Here
- Their Best Selling Thongs – Check It Out Here
- Their Entire “Cozy” Collection (Our Fave) – Check It Out Here
- It’s the most comfortable shapewear we’ve worn yet.
- It really did hold everything in, up, and in place – comfortably.
- There are a lot of different body “skin-tones” to choose from – something for all of us.
- Some things can be a bit expensive (at least for me).
- I’m not a fan of free shipping only when you have a pretty high minimum to spend.
The Real Deal With Coupons + Promo Codes:
I consider myself to be an expert shopper and deal hunter. I wasn’t able to find a working promo code or even sign-up coupon for SKIMS anywhere online. I feel like I failed you, but at least you won’t have to waste your time endlessly scrolling on the internet to try and find a discount code or two out there for your order.
However, there’s always a silver lining when it comes to find some kind of deal though. This time I was able to find their free shipping offer. There’s a minimum spend, but once you hit the number you’ll get free standard shipping. Ok, so it’s not the best, but at least there’s something.
I did recently discover that many of their top sellers are actually carried online at Nordstrom. While they’re not always on sale I have seen certain picks for 20% off. Check out the Nordstrom deals here!
At this point any coupon or promo code that they’ll offer will have to come from them. If they do ever want to partner with us here at Jenraly (we’d love that) and I’ll let you know so I can pass on the savings.
So for now, check out some of our fave promos from SKIMS in January 2021.
