Kim Kardashian might be tryna catch up with her Billionaire little sister because…TWO MILLY?! Daaaang.
According to TMZ, Kim Kardashian’s new shapewear line, Skims Solutionwear sold out in just a few minutes and completely emptied her inventory of $2 million worth of products. Initially the site crashed due to all traffic and set the launch back an hour from it’s original time of 9am PST/12pm EST. Kim took to her social media to thank fans for their support.

My fans and followers are a huge inspiration to me – I’m always listening to their feedback and opinions, and am so grateful they shared their ideas for a new brand name. After much thought and consideration, I’m excited to announce the launch of @SKIMS Solutionwear™ coming September 10. I love the idea that the pieces will be the closest thing to someone’s skin, skimming with amazingly soft and supportive fabrics which accentuate the best parts of our bodies. Available in sizes XXS – 5XL, SKIMS Solutionwear™ is for every body. SKIMS.COM. #ShowYourSKIMS Photo: #VanessaBeecroft
You may remember all the controversy surrounding the line when Kim first announced the brand’s name would be “Kimono.” The public responded with the QUICKNESS and accused the reality star of cultural appropriation. For those who may be unaware, a kimono is a traditional Japanese garment often worn for important holidays, weddings, etc. Hence the accusations. Following the backlash, the entrepreneur issued an apology saying, “When I announced the name of my shapewear line, I did so with the best intentions in mind. My brands and products are built with inclusivity and diversity at their core and after careful thought and consideration, I will be launching my Solutionwear brand under a new name. I will be in touch soon. Thank you for your understanding and support always.” Kim says her team is working to get the collection restocked asap!
