I know I’m late here (Kim Kardashian’s shapewear brand launched way back in 2019), but until recently I hadn’t tried SKIMS’ coveted shapewear line. Last year I fell in love with SKIMS’ seamless and cotton basics, including the seamless t-shirt and underwear. Last month, when I was looking for shapewear styles to wear under my wedding dress, I figured I might try SKIMS.

Just to make sure I had all my bases covered for the big day, I decided to try three of SKIMS’ best-selling shapewear pieces: the Waist Trainer, the Sheer Sculpt Low Back Short, and the Sculpting Short Above the Knee With Open Gusset . I also have their almost always sold out soft lounge slip dress, which isn’t shapewear, but I can’t recommend it more highly – it looks amazing on literally everyone. Full Disclosure: The package didn’t make it to my wedding in time (thanks, Memorial Day weekend delays!), but yes, I survived my big day without them and tested my post-wedding shapewear with plenty of bodycon sundresses.

What I love about SKIMS is that they make it super easy to find exactly what you’re looking for (in terms of support and control) while shopping online. The day before my trip to my wedding I was looking for alternative shapewear to replace my late SKIMS package and it was so difficult to find exactly what I was looking for without having to take the garments out of their boxes.

Since my goal was to flatten and contour my legs and stomach to better fit my vintage wedding dress (and being a little too small), I opted for shapewear styles that offered “heavy support,” which is mine In my opinion, it is simply nicer to say “strong suction power”. I definitely remember my OG Spanx shorts back then did a noticeable slimming effect for my core, they would also completely cut off my circulation – a sacrifice I was not usually willing to make. But the three Skims styles I tried gripped and contoured my figure without feeling tight and uncomfortable – something I didn’t think was possible.

I realize that both Kim Kardashian and SKIMS have not only received their fair share of criticism (e.g., accusations of cultural appropriation and the controversy surrounding the launch of maternity shapewear), but that shapewear as a whole tends to do so to fall into the anti-body positivity arena. To be honest, sometimes I just want a feeling little a little more confident in a tight dress – and why should I feel bad about that? I can warmly recommend the SKIMS line to anyone looking for high-quality shapewear with a wide range of support options that delivers what it promises without cutting off the circulation.

Available in black and nude, this adjustable waist trainer will keep you comfortable without feeling like a Victorian era corset. If you’re in between sizes I recommend sizing up as it runs a little small.
