The Skims website is massive. I just didn’t know that there could be so many choices when it came to underwear. Much less the patterns, fabrics and options one company could offer. I picked through their site many times before ordering just for the fact that I was overwhelmed by everything.
The things I have purchased I do really like which is why I wanted to devote an entire blog post to the brand. There are definitely some good and bad things, so I wanted to outline them and tell you more about what I love.
What works and what doesn’t – Skims
Personally, I think the site is overkill. Don’t misunderstand me. I love that they offer as many nude shade and sizes as they do. To me it is one of the most inclusive brands out there. However, there are almost too many options. That may just be my opinion and there are people out there who need faux leather panties but it’s not me. I would just love to see them focus on the basics and doing that really well rather than there being a new fabric launch each month.
I do love the options on specialty items. I was searching for a one shoulder bralette this summer and they were the only brand I could find one that was in a shade of nude and that had a thin strap. Also, with items like shapewear Skims is going to have options that fit a variety of dresses or outfits. They have pieces in their shapeware collection that I have never seen before.
Overall, the products are high quality and well made. The range of nude shades and sizes they offer is amazing.

A few things I want to get…
Definitely worth the purchase. They do sell out often, so you need to turn notifications on for the item when it restocks. Pay a lot of attention to the size chart. It is very informative and will get you the correct size every time.
