THE first time she wore a bodysuit from Skims, one woman returned the garment because she said it ripped right away.
Even though she ordered a replacement in a larger size, it made no difference – the second one tore, too, she claimed leaving her shocked and frustrated.

Standing in front of a mirror, unsatisfied customer Ashley Golnick addressed the Skims founder directly.
“This message is for Kim Kardashian,” she said in a TikTok video. “If you are not Kim Kardashian, feel free to swipe up.”
Then, lifting up her dress, Golnick exposed the shapewear she had on underneath. There were two large holes in the material on her thigh.
“Um, hey Kim, what the f*** is this?” she demanded, pointing at the rips.
“Ma’am, look. I know that I don’t have the body like you,” Golnick continued. “But I know that you and your sisters have some thick thighs.”
That’s why it was so surprising that the Skims bodysuit she wore had ripped – and on the first wear, no less, Golnick said.
“This is the second pair I have bought that have ripped right there,” she added.
Golnick said that she had originally ordered the Sculpting Mid-Thigh Bodysuit, $68, in a size L/Xl.
When it ripped, she ordered a 2X/3X instead, but it tore, too.
“I’m not skinny, but I’m also not generally a 2X/3X,” Golnick said, explaining how confused the entire experience had left her.

Mostly, she was frustrated by the unnecessary expense. She said, “I paid f***ing $70 for this s*** and it’s ripped twice.”
In the video description, Golnick pointed out the cruel irony of the situation.
“Buys Skims bodysuit to avoid my legs chafing, legs chafe because said bodysuit is so cheap it rips after the first wear,” she wrote.
According to the Skims website, customers can return products for a refund within 90 days if they receive them damaged.
It’s unclear if Golnick’s bodysuit, which she says ripped on the first wear, would be eligible for a refund under this policy.
