A hilarious TikTok of a woman reviewing Kim Kardashian's SKIMS shapewear line has gone viral, racking up eight million views in just five days. The post was created by Adria Barich, a TikTok user based in Nevada who creates comedy videos. In her bio, she describes herself as "A little Italian and a whole lot of fun," reminding viewers that she's on the app for laughs.
She starts the video by saying, "This video is for Kim Kardashian, and Kim Kardashian only." We then see Barich appear on camera wearing a pair of nude, high-waisted Skims shaping underwear, looking unimpressed.
She comments, "What is this? I thought SKIMS were supposed to make me curvalicious, not Winnie the Pooh wearing too-small underwear." I may have snorted at this point, relating all too well to trying on ill-fitting shapewear.
She jokingly continues, "I look like the Pillsbury Doughboy. I have two more butt cheeks than I started with." She then turns around, rear to the camera, and smacks her bum for effect.
She carries on, "Why yes, I am wearing shapewear. Oh, you didn't know? You couldn't tell?
Barich included the hashtag #bodypositivity on her post, and the jokey, deadpan tone of her delivery indicates that she's not being hard on herself - just laughing at the garments not fitting properly, and thus not getting the Kardashian 'shaping' effect that she'd hoped for.
The video quickly racked up over 14,000 comments, with some people laughing along with her, and others taking it seriously, suggesting that she may have simply chosen the wrong size of SKIMS.
Here's what some people said:
This has to be the best post ever! I can relate! 😂
It says it's shapewear...it gave you a shape, it just wan't specific LOL!
girllll...it's the wrong size, mine fits perfectly cause I got the right size
People in this comment section don't get it, do they? 😂
YOU SAID WINNIE THE POOH AND I CACKLED
it's not her fault if you got the wrong size lmao
Skims is actually really good! But the sizes is a little off, try getting one size up and a different kind of their shapewear
Barich has liked a lot of the comments, laughing along and replying "HAHAHA" at some of them. Most people seem to agree that the post is all in good fun, or can at least relate to online shopping fails that don't fit quite the way you imagined them to. We've all been there, right?
