Kim Kardashian West Skims Cotton Collection

Kim Kardashian West is expanding her intimates offering. 

Skims Solutionwear will soon include the “Cotton Collection,” an assortment of loungewear and intimates apparel. 

“My essential underwear and lounge pieces made from ultra soft cotton are coming soon,” Kardashian West wrote on an Instagram post Thursday. 

Starting Oct. 15 at Skims.com, shoppers will be able to choose from different types of bras, bikini bottoms, thongs, T-shirts, tank tops, boxers and leggings in five different colors: bone, soot, mineral, kyanite and iris mica.    

In a press release, Kardashian West said the pieces, which are made from natural fibers, are “an incredibly soft assortment of cotton lounge and underwear designed for comfort and ease.”

“Sizing for the collection ranges from XXS through 4XL in keeping with the brand’s emphasis on inclusivity, offering versatile pieces that are available to everyone and for every body,” the statement continued. Prices range from $18 for a thong to $56 for the balconette bra. 

Kardashian West teased the collection in her Instagram stories the same day.

“I’m so excited to announce the new @Skims Cotton Collection,” she said in her Instagram story, with the products spread out across a bed and links to the web site. 

“Join the waitlist now at Skims.com to be the first to shop the Cotton Collection before it sells out,” Kardashian West wrote on Instagram. 

The beauty and fashion entrepreneur’s shapewear line, Skims Solutionwear, debuted on Sept. 10. But Kardashian West teased the release over the summer by way of social media

At the time, the celebrity said she had been working on a shapewear brand for the last 15 years and it would be named “Kimono.” 

“Trying to find shapewear over the years, Kim became frustrated with the lack of options available and could never find anything that really worked or gave the right support,” a company statement said. “This led her to cut up pieces at home and sew them together to get the solutions and results she wanted.”

But the introduction was quickly followed by controversy. Within hours, the Internet exploded with accusations of cultural appropriation, since the brand’s planned name was the same as that of the traditional Japanese garment. 

Kardashian apologized, promising to rename the line at a later date. In August, she said the brand would still incorporate her name, but instead be called Skims Solutionwear.  

“Skims is fueled by Kardashian West’s passion to provide truly considered, unique and technical options for all women,” according to a statement. “Skims by Kim Kardashian West is a new approach to shape enhancing undergarments. The brand is the culmination of Kardashian West’s decade-long experimentation with underwear.”
