If you’ve ever searched for that perfect shapewear for a big event, no doubt you’ve come across SKIMS, a brand famously founded by Kim Kardashian. SKIMS was created as an innovative shapewear line that could accommodate every body shape, size and color. Since then, it has exploded into so much more, including loungewear, undergarments and even wardrobe basics.
As popular as SKIMS is, the downside is that it rarely (almost never) goes on sale. In fact, earlier this year, shoppers could get SKIMS on sale for the first time ever. But don’t despair. If you missed this SKIMS sale and still want to snag some must-have pieces, there are a few ways to find SKIMS sales and save.
Why Is SKIMS So Popular?
SKIMS is so popular because the line offers something for every woman’s body. Offered in nine different shades and extended size ranges, every person will find shapewear to fit their unique size and needs. Even during the pandemic, SKIMS continued to grow and evolve, and has now become a billion dollar business. It strategically introduced pajamas and loungewear at just the right time –when everyone was stuck at home during lockdowns – and the business has continued to thrive.
Now, as women emerge from lockdowns and are wearing form-fitting clothes again, shapewear remains SKIMS’ central line. With its extensive range of solutions for every garment need, from plunging necklines to high slits and backless tops, you can look great in every outfit. If you don’t want to pay the high price tag, we’ve figured out some shopper-savvy ways to find SKIMS sales. Read on for our best tips.
5 Ways To Get SKIMS on Sale
1. Shop the SKIMS Bi-annual Sale
Despite rarely having public sales, shoppers will pay full retail price just to get their hands on SKIMS merchandise. Sure, SKIMS has had skads of private sales reserved for email subscribers, but most items sold out so quickly that those patient subscribers were bumped to a dreaded waitlist.
The most recent SKIMS sale for everyone was its Bi-annual Sale, which happens in May (usually around Memorial Day) and again in November (around Black Friday and Cyber Monday). You can expect upwards of 50% off the brand’s bestsellers, including bodysuits, bras, underwear, waist trainers.
Common sense would indicate that another sale will happen at some point in the next year. Keep a close watch, so you don’t miss it, and be ready to act fast when it happens. SKIMS always sell out quickly. And be sure to follow SKIMS on social media where sales announcements are also made.
2. Sign Up for the SKIMS Mailing List
Sign up for the SKIMS mailing list to track when and where SKIMS sales are happening. You’ll be in the know about all upcoming sales before the general public. Talk about getting an edge.
3. Get Free SKIMS Shipping
OK, so not technically a sale, but if you spend $75, you get free shipping by shopping through the SKIMS website. While that might not seem like much, it’s better than nothing, and hitting the $75 threshold shouldn’t be a challenge, given how much SKIMS products cost.
4. Shop SKIMS at Exclusive Retailers for Discounts
Leave it to SKIMS to sell to a few very exclusive retailers. But it just seems to add to the brand’s mystery and cult following. You can save on your SKIMS favorites and the basics by as much as 50% off. But popular sizes sell out quickly, so make it a habit of checking back as often as you can. Note: Some retailers are outside the U.S. but they still ship internationally.
Here’s the list of SKIMS retailers:
- David Jones stores + DavidJones.com SKIMS collection.
- Harrods stores + Harrods.com SKIMS collection.
- Holtren Renfrew stores + HoltrenRenfrew.com SKIMS collection.
