When it comes to Kim Kardashian's Skims line, we had already tried out her fuzzy Cosy Collection — yes, it's as amazing as it looks — but we were really stoked when we saw she launched a range of Stretch Rib sets in bone, slate green, and soot. After spending what feels like countless weeks at home sheltering in place, we were ready for some new loungewear, and co-ords are an easy answer. They bring some polish to your stay-home look, and ribbing happens to be the detail du jour. It's got a certain sportiness to it that I'm certainly a fan of, and it can be a really comfortable fabric when crafted right.
But just because these Skims are a Kardashian branded product, does that make them fabulous? That's what I wondered as I unwrapped my own pieces from the plastic and held up the Stretch Rib Shorts underwear in consideration, eyebrows raised as I realised they were about the width of one of my thighs. But my goodness, these things stretch! Both my bra top and shorts fit me like a glove (yes I ordered my standard size), and were they comfortable? Hell yes. I had never worn loungewear that literally felt like butter until I got my hands on Kim Kardashian's. Ahead, you can check out how my team and I styled our Skims and find out how we rated them on a scale of 1 to really frickin' Komfortable.
