I've been following Kim Kardashian's foray into the shapewear industry since the start, but my interest truly sparked when I heard about the launch of the Skims Cosy Collection back in December 2019. No matter the occassion, my number one goal when it comes to dressing is always comfort. You'll almost never find me in anything super forfitting, unless you consider leggings formfitting! For that reason, I was interested in giving this one a try, since it was designed specifically with comfort levels in mind.
The collection, which is available in sizes XXS to 5X, features four luxe lounge pieces made from breathable boucle yarn: a Knit Robe ($128), Knit Pants ($88), Knit Shorts ($58), and Knit Tank ($52). Like past Skims collections, the pieces are also available in tonal shades like bone white, dusk, onyx, and cocoa. I opted for the tank top and knit robe in the bone white hue since I thought I'd wear it the most.
My initial reaction when I got my hands on the pieces was to check out the fabric to see if it really was that "cosy." Turns out, it was. All I could think of was the scene from Despicable Me where Agnes screams, "It's so fluffy!" It kind of felt like I was wearing a hug, if that makes sense. I styled the designs with my favourite pair of worn-in mom jeans to break up the pieces. Over the next few weeks, I found myself reaching for the pieces on more than one occasion when I wanted something a bit dressier than a sweatshirt but with same amount of comfort. Read on to see how I wore the pieces and shop the collection if you're feeling inspired too.
