Finding quality SKIMS dupes as close to the real thing poses its challenges because SKIMS is unlike other brands of shapewear.
The diva behind the SKIMS brand, (yeah, THE diva herself) Kim Kardashian, understands shapewear shouldn’t come in just black or nude shades. Instead, shapewear and undergarments ought to extend and complement a customer’s natural skin tone. That’s why when you’re shopping SKIMS, you’ll see a wide variety of nude tones and darker hues. But the brand doesn’t limit itself to shapewear, bras and panties.
The SKIMS Cozy collection, for example, is everything the name says — and then some. Designed for lounging in style, this warm knit collection is ultra-comfortable and flattering. Starting at $48 for a bralette, however, means SKIMS isn’t always the most affordable option. And even at a somewhat higher price point, SKIMS merchandise also sells out really, really (really) fast.
Some SKIMS prints, colors and styles are exclusive to the brand and simply cannot be replicated. However, you can find affordable alternatives to hold you over while your name remains on more waitlists than you have fingers and toes.
On Oct. 6, 2022, Kim K’s SKKN by Kim debuted a whole line of minimalist home accessories that joins the reality star’s own line of skin care of the same name.
While it’s nice to splurge on a product or two from the brand, these SKIMS knockoffs will give you more bang for your buck and are available right now.
SKIMS Dupes: Latex
The yumminess of the SKIMS latex collection cannot be understated. And obviously people agree since most sizes are sold out completely. Maybe it’s the shiny bubble gum pink colors that make you feel the prettiest or the fact that SKIMS is the master of small batches, regardless finding your size in a color you can’t live without is tough. But these latex dupes are pretty darn yummy, too. And the best part — they’re in stock.
SKIMS Dupes: Faux Leather
Although SKIMS has sold faux leather items in the past, the newer SKIMS Faux Leather collection came and went in a blink. So, what’s a girl to do while waiting for that SKIMS email to come alerting you that you’re off the waitlist? Well, shop these dupes with a similar look to SKIMS’ most popular faux leather styles in the meantime.
SKIMS Dupes: Bodysuit
The SKIMS Bodysuits For Everyone line is the ultimate base layer. These super soft pieces come in a variety of styles: high neck, backless, one shoulder, long and short sleeves and T-shirt and cutout silhouettes. While not all styles are wait-listed, the most popular ones are.
These are formidable alternatives to SKIMS bodysuits, so you’re not tapping your foot waiting in the shadows for your size to reappear:
SKIMS Dupes: Bodycon Dress
The iconic SKIMS soft lounge dress made its debut in March 2021, and I’m pretty sure there’s been a steady waitlist off and on ever since. Options include square and high necklines, spaghetti straps and long sleeves and super-duper long maxis and above the knee. What they have in common is that they all hug every single bit of your curves, leaving you with a slinky silhouette. They start at $58 and go up to $118.
If you don’t want to wait for the next SKIMS restock, then check out these dress alternatives:
SKIMS Dupes: Catsuit
SKIMS has made the catsuit and onesie totally sexy and cool. They constructed these garments in a way that gives you a bold, ultra-flattering and form-fitting base layer to stress your curves. The nightclub-inducing onesies come in SKIMS’ iconic tonal colors.
These are some alternatives for the most popular SKIMS styles that are sold out or have very few sizes left:
SKIMS Dupes: Shapewear
SKIMS is renowned for its amazing shapewear and has been one of the few brands to challenge Spanx. When SKIMS first hit in 2019, it was really primarily a shapewear brand. But in just a few short years, it expanded into swimsuits, loungewear and even its most recent Hotel Collection.
While they aren’t SKIMS, these are mighty fine shapewear alternatives I think you’ll like:
SKIMS Dupes: Loungewear
They released the SKIMS loungewear line in early December 2019 with “The Cozy Collection.” And since then, it’s been adding more and more totally delicious pieces to keep us, well, cozy and comfy. The aptly named collection included teddy robes, pants, shorts, and tops in tonal colors.
SKIMS further expanded its loungewear reach with its first Velour Collection in September 2021 and then collaborated with designer Fendi to create puffer coats and logo loungewear a month later.
These are alternatives for lounge-y SKIMS favorites with availability that’s currently iffy at best:
SKIMS Dupes: Underwear
Whether you like your underwear in cheeky styles or boxer shorts, SKIMS has it. They come in multiple tonal colors and limited edition colors, too. And while they are usually in stock, SKIMS underwear are on the pricier side.
For example, SKIMS cotton boxers are $32 and the most expensive pair of SKIMS undies. So if you’re looking for a similar style, then these dupes are close seconds to the original for a whole lot less.
