Fancy a figure like Kim Kardashian West? You can buy the next best thing. The reality television superstar’s line of shapewear, underwear and loungewear, Skims, launched on luxury e-tailer Net-a-porter on Dec 1.

In addition to its range of sculpting shapewear called Solutionwear, the line of neutral-toned staples includes bras, pajamas and tanks.

Skims has been lauded for its inclusivity of multiple body shapes, with sizes from XXS to 4X (and up to 5X in Solutionwear), 31 cups, and nine tonal shades.

Prices range from US$20 for briefs to US$148 for a boucle robe, with shipping to Singapore.

Net-a-porter’s senior fashion market editor Libby Page says: “SKIMS has completely redefined underwear and loungewear dressing, seamlessly integrating the two worlds at a time when we need it most.”

Despite its popularity now, the label came under fire when it was first announced last year under the name Kimono, with many accusing Kardashian West of cultural appropriation.
