Kim Kardashian has introduced a compression fabric swimwear collection that flatters all body shapes
Kim Kardashian debuted a sculpting swimwear collection today (Friday, August 12).
The 41-year-old’s ‘SKIMS’ brand prides itself on being suitable for all seasons and empowering you to look your ‘best’ as it was developed as a solution for every body type.
Dubbed the Shaping Swim, the new range is made of compression fabric that aims to “smooth and shape” the body.
Available in sizes XXS-4XL, the nine-piece range includes one-pieces, bikini sets, cycling shorts, maxi skirts and full-body swimsuits.
The collection is available for purchase SKIMS website with prices ranging from £54 to £108.
The drop comes just weeks after Paris Jackson modeled Kim’s latest SKIMS release.
The collection included swim gloves, which were a hit and sold out extremely quickly.
“Instantly upgrade your swim look and add a sexy splash wherever you go with these trend-setting swim gloves,” the product description reads. “Perfectly combinable with any swimming style for a ready-to-wear look.”
Despite its popularity, fans have had a mixed reaction to the product, with some questioning its practicality.
“I need to know who bought Skim’s swim gloves and why?” asked one Twitter user.
Others supported Kim by writing: “People think @Kim Kardashian lost his mind with those swimming gloves. I see a woman with an autoimmune disease hacking fashion to protect her skin. As a woman with #Vitiligo who’s always at the pool, i’m so done with these @skims Gloves. Might even be added to the waiting list.”
“The gloves 💜🤤,” commented another user.
