Woman slams Kim Kardashian for ‘troubling’ SKIMS shapewear line

A woman has called out Kim Kardashian for the ‘troubling’ sizing of her SKIMS line after being gifted a thong that was so small she couldn’t pull the shapewear up past her thighs.  

Jasmine Alexandria, who is known as @jj_alexandria on TikTok, shared her outrage in a viral video that has been viewed more than 10.3 million times, explaining that she was given the brand’s core control thong in a size Large/X-Large. 

‘Now Kim, Kim Kardashian, we’re going to need to have a f**king conversation because I got SKIMS for Christmas,’ the 29-year-old from California griped. ‘Let me just show you what I got, and let me talk about the sizing because the sizing is what’s really troubling me.’

Alexandria then pulled the thong out of its box to show viewers how tiny is, insisting that it hardly has any elasticity.   

‘This is a Large/Extra Large and b***h this does not stretch,’ she said. ‘It does not stretch. When I tell you I couldn’t even get this past up my thigh…’

Alexandria went on to accuse the Kardashians of having plastic surgery to achieve their famous curves while bashing the brand. 

‘It’s crazy to me because with the Kardashians, it’s like you guys buy your bodies, right? You know what I’m saying?’ she continued. ‘You bought that a**. You bought them t****s. So, you know damn well this ain’t going to do anything. 

‘My question to you, Kim Kardashian, is: What size are you wearing in your line?’ she asked. ‘Because you are not wearing a Large/Extra Large.’

The SKIMS website states that its core control thong ‘intentionally runs smaller for a compressive look and feel.’ Customers are advised to ‘size up’ if they ‘prefer more comfort for everyday wear.’ 

However, the brand has received plenty of flack over its wonky sizing over the years, and a number of commenters agreed that the shapewear is ridiculously small. 

‘I wear a size 6 jeans and a small dress. I wear a 4X in Skims,’ one person wrote, while another added: ‘I’m a size medium. 2xl skims we’re too small for me.’

‘I bought some as well and it’s an xl and it fits comfortably on my 16 year old size 0 teenager,’ someone else shared. ‘These aren’t for women for sure. I was mad.’       

After a commenter refused to believe that Alexandria’s tiny SKIMS thong was a size Large/X-Large, she filmed a follow-up video showing the inside of the tag. 

Before Alexandria tried pulling the thong up, she warned that she didn't want to stretch the underwear too much or rip them because she planned on taking them back

'Oh my god, it hurts,' she said as she struggled to pull up the thong. 'It’s cutting off my circulation'

In a third clip, she demonstrated how difficult it was for her to pull the shapewear over her thighs after a commenter insisted she would look ‘snatched’ if she put them on. 

She pointed out that she was wearing SKIMS leggings and a matching bra in a size Large, which fit her decently well. She also warned that she didn’t want to stretch the underwear too much or rip them because she planned on taking them back. 

‘Oh my god, it hurts,’ she said as she struggled to pull up the thong. ‘It’s cutting off my circulation.’

Alexandria started jumping up and down to try to wiggle them up without avail, saying she couldn’t get them any farther.  

‘[If I had] a team of three to five people at each angle of the drawers pulling them up for me, yes they would fit,’ she said at the end of the video, but I’m ain’t doing all that to get into shapewear.’
