I’m a size 3X – I spent $120 on SKIMS but none of the clothes fit, they looked like they were made for dollsMay 31, 2022
SKIMS is the latest obsession in the fashion world as women flock to Kim Kardashian's website to purchase clothes that could potentially make them look like the reality TV star.
Sadly, a "plus-sized" woman didn't have the same luck as many.
A Maryland fashion blogger, who goes by the name Miss Jemima, shared an honest review of SKIMS on a plus-sized body and she didn't have great things to say.
"I've had my eye on them for a little bit but I was quite satisfied with my Spanx so I never bothered to venture out and see what else I can get, because, if I'm being honest, I'm usually let down, disappointed, and underwhelmed by all the shapewear that's out there," the blogger explained in her video.
She then revealed that she had purchased three different types of shapewear, including the ones made for dresses with high slits, which would set her back around $120.
"Apparently you have to buy two different kinds to get the ones with each leg out, I was hoping you could buy one and interchange them," she said.

Pulling them out of the package, Miss Jemima explained that she purchased them in a 4X/5X despite wearing a 3X in everything else.
"Look! Oh my god," she kept saying as she held the shapewear to her body, showing off how much smaller it looked.
"This is going to be a nightmare to get on! And you can't return it if you try it on. How am I supposed to put this on? There's no way!"
She stretched it across her body and even tried to fit her arms into the leg holes with no success.

Finally, the moment to try them on came.
As she tried to slip them on, they wouldn't go past her knees.
"This has to be a joke! Maybe they mislabeled? It looks like it's a size six and not a 4X."
After pulling them off, Miss Jemima sat on her chair, frustrated.
"This was such a huge fail. Coin not well spent, so I would say so if you're a 1X, you might be able to fit in this 4X/5X.
"It's not even a quarter of my belly."
Following her video, many took to the comment section to share similar experiences.
"I feel your pain! I’m usually a 1X, ordered 2X-3X, and broke them on the first try," one woman wrote.
"Was left breathless from putting them on! Most misleading and disappointing shapewear out there. Thank you for your review! Should have watched this before spending my hard earn money on this trash!"
A second added: "Skims went ahead and skimmed off the rest of the material. You’re better than me cause I wouldn’t have even tried it on."
And a third said: "Had the same issues with Skims but was able to get them on by standing up and using my knees to widen them up to my hips real quickly. 4x-5x is more for size 18-20."
