PURCHASING a supposedly inclusively flattering Skims dress, one shopper found that the product didn’t look good on her midsize body type.
Lexi, who goes by @therealtrulylex on TikTok, often posts honest midsize clothing reviews.

Lexi tried on the $78 Fits Everybody Long Slip Dress by Kim Kardashian’s shapewear line Skims in a size large.
Her caption for this video read: “I was hesitant to post because it feels really exposing. But this is a realistic try-on.”
“I had high hopes and I was really disappointed,” Lexi said in a voiceover while recording herself posing in the nude-colored and figure-hugging dress in a fitting room.
The scoop neckline, thin straps, and bottom of the maxi dress appear to fit well.
However, the fabric tugs around Lexi’s stomach and is not smooth as promised.
“It really emphasized my stomach, was completely see-through, and showed my cellulite,” Lexi said.
Although the dress’s product description says the fabric is double lined, Lexi revealed a problem when she turned to show the back.
Her dark underwear could be seen through the stretchy and sheer fabric.
“I just want to show how, realistically, it looks on a size 12 and large,” she said.
“This was my size and, yeah, I was highly disappointed,” she said while giving a thumbs down to the camera.
Lexi received comments praising her honesty about the product fit as well as complimenting her.
“Thank u for posting a realistic try-on! U still look hella cute in it tho.”
And while the Skims website suggests the dress fits true to size, another person suggested Lexi purchase one size larger for a less sheer appearance.
