We Tried On 16 Best Sellers From Skims—Here Are Our Thoughts

As someone who's been watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians since season one 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 hit-or-miss, but everything I've tried thus far from Skims has exceeded every expectation. Sizing and fit vary for everyone, so I thought I'd ask my co-workers to try on some of the brand's best sellers and share their honest reviews. 

We've taken a variety of pieces, from cotton bras to cozy sweatsuits, out for a test run. We even shared our favorite tried-and-true Skims pieces, 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 person, there's no turning back.

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 this 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, the baby tee is giving me a '90s feel, so I want to style it on its own with some high-waisted denim, too."

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 ($18) and the brand's T-shirts that feel like air. I even willingly tested out the Waist Trainer ($68) on a 90-degree day for a story and was thoroughly impressed. Knowing that, when I tried out the Cotton Mock Neck Tank ($34) and matching Cotton Rib Boxers ($32), 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 being a ribbed fabric. They both hugged my body in a really nice way 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 underarm area. If the chest on the shirt was slightly wider, it would be a bit more flattering in that spot."

Review: "It's the dead of winter, and if you're anything like me, you're spending a lot more time 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, you just need to wear something that feels like a warm hug sometimes. 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 Berohn's tee."

Review: "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."

Review: In the cold winter, this top is what I want to be wearing 24/7. It has a slightly loose fit and feels like a cloud. This, like all the other cozy pieces, are hand-wash only, which would be my only "con."
