The SKIMS Cyber Monday sale is here, and it's something I'm genuinely excited about, because Kim Kardashian's shapewear and underwear only goes on sale twice a year.

I first started wearing SKIMS when I got pregnant in 2021 as I wanted underwear that felt like a second skin but still looked nice, and I've worn nothing else since (I do still wear clothes on top, don't worry). Not many people are aware of this, but SKIMS even have a range of breastfeeding bras which I lived in for the first year postpartum. 

My love of SKIMS doesn't stop there either, I'm obsessed with the pyjamas and loungewear too. I can't fault the quality, and my sets are still going strong, however I'll be adding a few more to my wardrobe because I'm a busy mum who's not always on top of her washes. 

SKIMS - quick links

SKIMS Cyber Monday

The bi-annual sale covers everything from bestselling pieces such as sculpting shorts and seamless underwear to loungewear and essentials. This is one of the best sales I've seen so far, with styles discounted by as much as 50%. This is what I'm buying. 

Essential Crew Neck Bodysuit,

Essential Crew Neck Bodysuit, was £78, now £38 | Skims

This is honestly the best foundation for any outfit. It's smoothing without being constricting, and keeps me warm. I wear it under layers but you can just as easily wear it as a top with jeans. 

Robe and tap short set, was £196

This gorgeous set is made of 92% silk so really good value at the discounted price.

Rhinestone leggings, was £88,

Rhinestone leggings, was £88, now £42 | Skims

These are a bit more out there, but they will give me extra motivation for my workout. They do come in more toned down hues as well and could work for a party look.

Cut-out long dress,

A buttery-soft, stretchy dress that is surprisingly flattering, and that I wear all summer long.

Logo Mesh Cami Bodysuit was £68

Another perfect layering piece. I'll be wearing it with a black velvet suit for party season. 

T-shirt bra, was £52

I have this bra in several colourways and it's the comfiest thing I own. 

Knit pants, was £88

Again, this is a style I already own, and slip right into every single Sunday. 

Seamless sculpt mid-waist brief,

Does exactly as it says on the tin. 

Scoop plunge bralette,

This staple comes in sizes XXS to 4X and in lots of different hues to cater to all skin colours.

Nursing Bra, was £42

Nursing Bra, was £42, now £24 | Skims

Like I said, I pretty much only wore this bra while I breastfed my daughter for a year, and I would 100% recommend it to all my nursing friends. 

Kim Kardashian SKIMS

SKIMS was founded by Kim Kardashian West in September 2019 to fill a gap in the market for size-inclusive (her line goes from XXS - 5X), comfortable and wearable shape enhancing undergarments, to slot into your everyday wardrobe. It now counts over 160 solution-focused options and loungewear pieces, including maternity wear.

We're obsessed with her latest launch, the silk collection, which is available in three colourways and is the most luxurious line yet. Here's what to add to your wishlist to hopefully buy in the SKIMS Black Friday sale.

Where to buy Skims shapewear

SKIMS launched in the UK in 2020. You are able to shop it online at Selfridges, as well as in its physical stores in London, Birmingham and Manchester. It is also available to buy at Net-A-Porter, and the SKIMS website now ships to the UK. The latter gives you access to the full range available in the US.
