SKIMS Cozy Collection

If you know me, you know that I LOVE a robe.

2020 has taught us the importance of comfortable loungewear, and Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS Cozy Collection is proof that you can be stylish and comfy no matter the season. Designed specifically with comfort levels in mind, the Cozy collection, part of Kim’s Skims Solutionwear line, is available in sizes XXS/XS to 4X/5X and features four luxe lounge pieces made from lightweight, breathable boucle yarn: a Knit Robe ($128), Knit Pants ($78), Knit Shorts ($58), and Knit Tank ($52). The line was originally available in tonal shades — like bone white, dusk, onyx, and cocoa — but it now features three new summer colors that have me dreaming of traveling to a desert oasis: stone, aqua, and camel.


About SKIMS

SKIMS was founded by Kim Kardashian West as a new approach to figure-enhancing undergarments intended to lift, support and flatter. Fueled by Kim’s passion to create truly considered, unique, and highly technical solutions in shapewear and underwear, SKIMS is for everyone and for everybody. Available in nine tonal colors and sizes XXS-5X.

SKIMS Review

Last week I took the plunge and ordered from Kim Kardashian’s highly publicized SKIMS solutionwear collection. I had been eying the collection since it launched and last week the pieces I had my eye on were finally available in my size. The sizing is a little confusing but based on the size guide I went with a L/XL for everything. A L/XL should fit sizes 10,12,14 according to the site and but I am a size 8/10 and found everything to be VERY tight.

All of the pieces in my SKIMS delivery were from the original KIMONO collection so they had the old tags on them. This is what the SKIMS website had to say about it:

So as not to waste our original round of production, a fabric label with the SKIMS logo has been placed inside the garment. This label has been wash and wear-tested to ensure nothing is compromised with quality and feel.

Honestly, I wouldn’t have even noticed the tag issue. I was too busy trying to wrangle this shapewear onto my body. The tags are soft, flat and not an issue!

For my SKIMS review, I wore all three pieces from my order for an hour under multiple outfits. I sat, I danced, and I lived in them…and this is what I thought.


SKIMS review | solutionwear


1 | The Sculpting High Waist Brief | $36 | L/XL | 78% Nylon / 22% Spandex

These are by far my favorite. If you are reading this go immediately to the SKIMS website and buy them. Not only are they comfortable (as comfortable as they are going to get), they really work. I tried the sculpting high waist brief on with two form-fitting dresses and honestly could not have looked better. If you taking anything away from this SKIMS review it should be to buy the brief ASAP!


2 | Core Control Brief | $28 | L/XL | 79% Nylon / 21% Spandex

These are the WORST. They do not stay up and they fit like a thong! I ordered the same size in everything and these do not come close to even fitting the same way as the other pieces in my order. They are not shaping my butt because they don’t even come close to covering it! There is also no way this would even come close to being invisible under everything. I am poking out of this from every possible angle like an overstuffed turkey! These are already back in the box with a one-way ticket back to Kim K.


3 | Core Control Short Mid Thigh | $38 | L/XL | 79% Nylon / 21% Spandex

If you are looking for FULL coverage and support like you’ve never felt before then these are your shorts. If you want to eat, breath or talk then these are NOT your shorts. These shorts intentionally run smaller for a compressive look and feel. If you prefer more comfort for everyday wear, SKIMS recommends selecting a size up or just not eating, breathing or talking. While I do not plan on returning these shorts (because honestly, my body looked BANGING in them) I am not quite sure when or how I will wear them.

 


Final thoughts: Kim is on her way to something great, but the products are not ALL there. The core control brief made me want to CANCEL Thanksgiving and go for a run. I could not put them back in their perfectly merchandised box fast enough! The sizing feels a little off too. If I really want to wear the core control short and LIVE I will most like need to go up to a size 2X/3X or 16,18,20?!?! and that just doesn’t sound right!

Have you shopped the SKIMS collection yet? Let me know in the comments.



SKIMS review | cozy


This week Kim dropped the cozy collection from SKIMS. This collection was designed for lounging in style…a lifestyle choice I can ALWAYS support. The collection dropped on Monday and sold out in minutes! I signed up for notifications on the website so I had a little bit of an early advantage to shop and I knew exactly what I was going for. I snagged the cozy robe and pants in bone and came home to a box the size of ME last night. My original SKIMS order came in a beautiful branded box and this order arrived in a MASSIVE basic brown box. My two items were packaged in clear plastic bags and the invoice was lose thrown into the box. Overall this was a VERY different experience from my original order. While I am all about reducing packaging and going as green as possible (especially this time of the year), this package did NOT feel special and ate my dinner before even trying anything on <- something I NEVER do.

I polled my Instagram audience on whether or not you were interested and another SKIMS review and the answer was an overwhelming 95% YES! So here we go!


1 | Cozy Knit Robe | $128 | L/XL | 76% Polyester/24% Nylon

I’m just going to be real honest here. At first touch, I was NOT impressed. It may have been the packaging but when I first felt the robe it felt like a mildly bedazzled barefoot dreams blanket. The robe features a tie at the waist and functional patch pockets. Kim calls it the epitome of luxe loungewear and I am slightly annoyed to confirm that she nailed it. I was honestly expecting to ship this giant box back to Calabasas, but I would rather die than take this shit off. I slept in it and I’m about to leave the house in it. The robe is a hard yes. I hope they restock this before Christmas because this would be the BEST gift in the WORLD and it shipped to me VERY quickly.


2| Cozy Knit Pant | $88 | L/XL | 76% Polyester/24% Nylon

The pants are another story. Yes, they are soft AF but if you are LIVING with a FUPA I don’t think that these are the pants for you. I tried them on last night and from some angles, I looked like Kim and from others, I looked six months pregnant. Kim says that they are perfect for lounging in style, but I am unsure if I can leave the house in these. I go from snatched to pregnant in a blink of the eye. The stretchy boucle yarn is supremely comfortable and ultra-flattering according to KKW, but I’m still on the fence on the cut and if they are really worth their $88 price tag. If you are going to shop anything from the SKIMS comfy collection make it the robe and snag it the moment it is restocked!


AQUIS X POOSH RAPID DRY LEOPARD PRINT HAIR TURBAN

And while I’m at it let’s add a little POOSH to this review post. In the photo above I’m sporting the Aquis x Poosh Rapid Hair Turban and holding the $15 mug Kourt uses every day. How’d I get my paws on both of these? The team from Aquis sent over the hair turban and the mug came in a PR package, so I did not purchase either like I purchased the SKIMS.

The hair turban was NOT new to me. I’ve been using Aquis Hair Turbans for years and I honestly love them. The only difference between the ones that I already own is that the leopard print outer layer of the turban is made of charmeuse. If you wear this turban inside-out (charmeuse against your hair) while you sleep it alleviates bed-head. And apparently it’s the next best thing to sleeping on silk! I just figured this out and am going to give it a try tonight.

Now let’s discuss the $15 mug Kourt uses every day. It’s made with double-wall glass so there’s no condensation, which means no need for a coaster, and the sturdy paneling allows you to hold a hot beverage without burning your hand. The chic, clear glasses are part of Kourt’s morning and evening routine—she drinks our Collagen Vibes first thing in the a.m. and our Collagen Latte to wind down at night. I am just drinking hot water out of it because I’m not that fancy, but this mug is good and I’m honestly annoyed that I like it.

Nécessaire Review


We’re living in an era focused on self-care at home and using clean, sustainable products. So, it’s no wonder that body care is becoming a more important part of skincare routines. It’s also why Necessaire has become one of the hottest body care brands on the market.

Whether you’ve seen Necessaire’s products in your social media feed or they’re currently on your nightstand, you can’t help but be drawn to their luxurious yet minimalistic packaging. The idea of skin-care-level ingredients without alcohol, silicone and fragrance-free options makes these products extremely desirable.

My thoughts on the products? My honest Nécessaire Review is that products are 100% worth the hype. They check all my boxes and my skin has never been better. Snag the essential set ASAP.
