Kim Kardashian's SKIMS has revolutionized the shape and loungewear game, but alas her flattering pieces do not come cheap—hence why these so-called SKIMS dupes could be game changers for your fall capsule wardrobe.
If you're unfamiliar, the brand is beloved for its sculpting bodysuits, uber cozy teddy pjs and minimalistic basics—like the best-selling SKIMS Fits Everybody tee. If you want loungewear that screams 'Quiet Luxury', SKIMS is the destination but as mentioned, the prices attached are not quite so subtle.
Luckily though, there are replicas and close alternatives a plenty where SKIMS swaps are concerned and yes, we've rounded them all up for you...
Best SKIMS dupes—from the viral dress to the the sculpting bodysuits
SKIMS is for many, a one-stop for all their basics, shapewear, undies and pajamas, with the pieces often being made from stretching—super comfy—jersey cotton or sleek elastine. Items like the bodysuits and bras are also made to be supportive but wearable (without causing agony like underwired bras for instance). But as mentioned, the starting price doesn't often dip below $20.
Thankfully, TikTok and brands like H&M, Girlfriend Collective and Amazon have come through with some close replicas of the most best-selling items...
H&M Fitted Microfiber T-shirt
This top, according to TikTok is a dupe of the 'Fits Everybody T-shirt'. It's available in three staple shades, including black and grey and is made from 95% polyamide and 5% spandex.
Verdusa Women's Sleeveless Long Bodycon
This Amazon dupe duped! TikTok shoppers are raving over this bodycon dress, which looks soo similar to the SKIMS Soft Lounge Slip ($78) and is available in a range of shades.
A&F Soft Matte Seamless Baby Tee
These tops are very reminiscent of SKIMS' best-selling tee, with its hugging fit, neutral shade range and fabric blend of 72% Nylon and 28% Elastane.
Girlfriend Collective Black Lola V-Neck Bra
Will this bra doesn't offer a major discount, it's still just cheaper than SKIMS sport bra-esque offering...
This mid-thigh shapewear bodysuit is another budget-friendly swap for anyone who has been eyeing up the SKIMS bodysuits.
A&F Soft Matte Seamless Long-Sleeve Tuckable Squareneck Top
Another SKIMS swap from Abercrombie & Fitch is this square-neck, long-sleeve top which is made from a blend of 79% Nylon and 21% Elastane.
H&M Ribbed Modal-blend Top
This staple long-sleeve is also a great option, with its soft rib material, flattering fit and neutral shade range—perfect for fall layering!
RRP: $35.99-$37.99 (size and color-dependent)
This sculpting bodysuit has rave reviews, with shoppers comparing it to the SKIMS' famous shapewear. In fact, one said: "I'd say this is pretty dang close to skims in terms of fit. I do think Skims sucks you in ever so slightly more, but this is a great, budget-friendly alternative."
H&M Jersey Thong Bodysuit
This high-neck, thong bodysuit is a true wardrobe staple and is very similar to some of SKIMS' own bodysuits. It's available in black, white and dark beige and offers a sleek, flattering fit.
Right now you can snag a bunch of stylish swaps from some of SKIMS hero products, including the viral SKIMS Soft Lounge Maxi Slip dress.
The SKIMS dress dupe is available at Amazon for under $30 (compared to the real article's $78 price point) and offers a similar shade range and silhouette. One shopper said: "This dress was nice and comfy it definitely helps shape the tummy, I definitely recommend and also it wasn’t see-through at all."
The Amazon bodysuit alternatives are also big hits with shoppers: "I have both, and this is a total dupe for the Skims bodysuit. It holds me in all the right places and is extremely comfortable.
Over on TikTok, the H&M tee has also received high praise for offering a similar vibe to the SKIMS one.
Styling your SKIMS swaps
The beauty of SKIMS and its various alternatives is that they're predominately basics, meaning they go (and layer under) just about everything.
We'd definitely suggest investing in the tops and bodysuits, for simple but chic everyday fits and even date night looks. The long dress, for instance, will be a great piece for fall, to style with your fave knits and jackets—we'd recommend a Hailey Bieber-esque leather jacket!
If you've got your heart set on owning real SKIMS items though, they're definitely good investment pieces as they're essentials that never go out of style!
