Kim Kardashian's clothing brand SKIMS is thriving, so when we heard SKIMS dupes were just waiting to be bought, we couldn't resist. Think of the best shapewear on the market, consisting of industrial boob tape and fleecy loungewear, all in wearable flesh tones. What's more, the full SKIMS range is now also available to shop at Selfridges. Cue excited screaming.

Kim Kardashian said of the launch, 'Selfridges are known for their incredible fashion mix. It makes it the perfect place for UK-based customers to discover SKIMS.' The only problem is, well... SKIMS is spenny. There's a good reason why, especially as SKIMS is a brand that has unmatched sculpting abilities.

Some of our favourite brands are included in the list above, and this is where you can shop the best dupes for SKIMS.

What celebrities are in love with SKIMS?

From shapewear leggings to loungewear and more, it's no surprise that the range from the Kardashian is being swept off the shelves, even being a go-to brand for some big celeb names. Taking to socials, these celebs practically sang the praises of the shapewear brand.

Chrissy Teigen revealed she was a big fan of the SKIMS one-legged shapewear shorts. She commented on Twitter, "Oh my god I don't have to cut one side of my Spanx anymore!!!!!"

Even Geordie Shore star and wearer of great clothes, Sophie Kasaei, raised a few eyebrows when she showed off her OOTD, which instantly roused suspicion she was emulating the Kim K brand in a SKIMS dupe.

One user pointed out that the ensemble "looks like Kardashian's PJs".

Another wrote, "Another SKIMS copy, but who can blame them when Kim's is so expensive!!"

To be fair to the Kardashian doppelgänger, SKIMS is expensive. £124 for the SKIMS cosy knit robe? We'll take the dupe.
