11 Best Skims Alternatives for Shopping, According to Social Media and Customer Reviews

Baby made…a ton of money back with these alternatives to Kim K.’s expensive underwear. (Amazon and Target)

Skims is one of our favorite brands for everything from shapewear to loungewear – for good reason! As well as being super comfortable, clothes from the Kim Kardashian-owned brand are incredibly flattering, thanks to their signature shapewear technology that enhances your curves and adapts to everyone. While we love how soft, stretchy, and comfy these pieces are, they can, unfortunately, be really hard to get your hands on. New drops often sell out quickly, and even when they are in stock, well, they are more expensive.

Luckily for us, social media users and online reviewers have found a slew of affordable shapewear options that are nearly identical in look and feel, for a fraction of the price. Whether you’re looking for a fuzzy loungewear set, a figure-flattering bodysuit, or a drool-worthy slip dress that makes you feel like Kim Kardashian herself, we’ve rounded up the best Skims dupes available online. Keep reading to shop all 11 pieces below.

Best Mock Neck Bodysuit


This stylish high neck bodysuit will go well with everything from fancy skirts to casual jeans.

$27 at Amazon

According to thousands of Amazon shoppers, this Reoria Seamless Bodysuit is almost identical to the Skims Fits Everybody High Neck Bodysuit at more than twice the price. Made from a soft and stretchy nylon/spandex blend, Reoria is available in 24 colors. Unfortunately, it’s not as complete as the Skims version and only fits XS to 2XL. “10/10 buying in any color,” said one buyer. “Finally a bodysuit that fits and hugs without giving panty lines! Seriously, the best value. So many people have asked if this was Skims.

Better slimmer body


Who doesn’t love multitasking underwear?

$38 at target

This slimmer open-bust bodysuit from Spanx’s diffusion line, Assets, is a great alternative to Skim’s open-bust bodysuit, which is currently sold out in all colors and sizes. Its compression technology smoothes your stomach and hip areas and lifts your back at the same time to give you a nice rear view. Perhaps best of all, it has a double-gusseted opening for easy bathroom access. One satisfied customer wrote: “This has got to be the best snatch wear that has ever been on my body. I’m so impressed I’d rate it neck and neck with my Skims clothes on. This gives Kim K. a run for her money!!! “

Best Fuzzy Loungewear Set

Fixed mat

Who wouldn’t want to snuggle up in a fuzzy ensemble like the Skims Cozy collection? Sure, but 1) A lot of them are sold out, and 2) There’s this very cheaper three piece set on Amazon that can be yours for the price of one Skims item. Each comes with a cropped tank top, track pants and a long duster cardigan that are all made from the same warm, super-soft material. There are 30 styles to choose from, so you can buy multiple sets and mix and match. “No kidding, these are pretty much exactly the same as my Skims lounge for half the price,” wrote one five-star reviewer.

The best ribbed leggings


Flattering, comfortable and affordable leggings? Yes please!

$34 at target

If you love the look and feel of Skims ribbed leggings but want a high waist that will suck you in (and want to spend $20 less to get it), consider getting these tops from JoyLab. They’re machine washable with a seamless design for a comfortable fit that won’t chafe, and they feature a sleek ribbed finish for a stylish look. “Comfortable, fits in mom’s pocket and won’t roll down,” said one shopper.

Best Ribbed Tee


At $8 a piece, we plan to buy multiples of these classic t-shirts.

$8 at target

Looking for a ribbed tee to match the aforementioned leggings? TikTok user @alisonbeaaa says these shirts have the same neckline and ribbed material as Skims Cotton Rib t-shirts, which are sold out. She even prefers the length of Target shirts over their more expensive counterpart. Luckily for you, these $8 basics come in 12 shades and range in size from XS to 4XL.

Best shapewear bodysuit


According to @snipestwins on TikTok, you don’t have to drop $68 to get a flattering and comfortable slimming bodysuit. The duo stood next to each other, one wearing the Skims sculpting bodysuit and the other wearing the over $20 and cheaper Shaperx style, and it was nearly impossible to tell the difference. No wonder the Shaperx option has become a #1 bestseller on Amazon. “I needed a compression garment to use after surgery. I ordered this one and a Skims. I am so in love with this product!! When the Skims were delivered I tried them out and decided to send them back. I prefer this one!!! Ripped off in comfort,” boasted one customer.

The best dress with straps


We can’t get over how flattering this ballroom dress is!

$39 at Amazon

If you’ve been anywhere on social media, you’ve probably seen the viral Skims Lounge Slip Dress, and TikTok user @Talilii said she’s found a more budget-friendly alternative. In the video, she has both versions of the dress and does a side-by-side comparison, saying the shape and fabric are basically the same. In fact, she liked the alternative so much, she said, that she “bought one in each color before they sold out.”

best long sleeve bodysuit


This simple scoop neck bodysuit is perfect for all shapes and sizes.

$25 at Amazon

TikToker @Indybelle_ posted a video about a $31 alternative to the Skims long sleeve scoop neck bodysuit. “It’s the most stretchy and buttery fabric. Fully lined and seamless…and it’s a thong, so no panty lines. It’s literally so flattering, I’ll take one in every style option,” she proclaimed while modeling this one-piece steal.

Best bra

Young lady

Create a smooth base under any outfit with this lightweight bralette.

$23 at Amazon

This Maidenform bralette is another favorite of shoppers and social media influencers. TikTok user @Simone_spams says “I feel supported…it’s soft, I feel like it does the exact same thing” as the Skims Fits Everybody Scoop Bralette. Not only is the Maidenform option cheaper; it also has a patented SmoothTec band that will hold it in place and prevent rolling up, fully adjustable straps and textured side panels to smooth and support you.

Best seamless thong


You can get five seamless flip flops for less than the price of one Skims option!

$15 at Amazon

Nobody likes the dreaded visible panty lines, which is probably why these Voenxe seamless flip flops and their more expensive counterparts, the Skims Fits Everybody flip flops, are so popular. But while a Skims thong will set you back $18, you can get a five-pack for just $15. Both versions are made from a soft and stretchy blend of polyamide and elastane and have a cotton crotch gusset for extra comfort.

Best Ribbed Shorts


This two-piece set from Ekaliy will not only give you a more affordable alternative to the Skims Rib Boxer brief, but it also comes with a similar matching top. And both pieces together cost less than the price of one Skims item. The lightweight ribbed set is stretchy, comfortable and perfect for lounging and low impact training. There are 19 colors available, and shoppers say it’s so flattering you’ll want to have more than one set in your rotation. “The material is soft and buttery, the perfect thickness and hugs your curves in all the right ways. I admit I was suspicious that this was even a good fit, but once I put it on, I knew I had to buy the other colorways,” one wrote.
