Much to the internet’s hilarity, a woman used Trader Joe’s restaurant-style tortilla chips to demonstrate the size of her Skims micro-bralette and thong.
Kim Kardashian’s shapewear and clothing line, Skims, made waves on TikTok last Sunday when a woman named Sarah, under her account @bbysarita, shared a video about a recent purchase. She told Insider that she “took a guess” on Skims Fits Everybody Micro Thong and Micro Triangle Bralette, which cost about $40 in total.
“So, if you’ve looked at the SKIMS micro bikini and wondered what the size is, these are tortilla chips for scale,” said Sarah. She included a photo of the comparison, which showed the bralette cups and the front of the thong covered in individual chips.
Sarah later tried on the bralette and micro-thong set and shared her thoughts in a follow-up video.
Skims representatives did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
Sarah made a TikTok about the bralette and micro-thong after her boyfriend and girlfriend playfully referred to it as “the Dorito bikini”
Sarah, a 28-year-old software engineer, told Insider she decided to take a chance on the silver bralette and micro-thong after they went on sale. She had previously purchased the bralette in two different colors for a summer music festival, but tried the micro-thong after the undergarments arrived at her house following a recent order.
“I laughed really hard at how small it was,” Sarah said. “I was surprised how small the bottoms were, especially when I tried them on over clothes. It was all rope.”
The idea to share the size comparison on TikTok came about after Sarah’s boyfriend, Ryan, and their mutual friend, Sean, made fun of the bralette and micro-thong.
“My friend Ryan and our best friend Sean called it the Dorito bikini when I originally wore the top,” said Sarah. “We cried laughing at the size of the bottoms, and he took the tortilla chips out of the cupboard and compared them. The chips were bigger than all the fabric on the bikini.”
Sarah said her boyfriend later sent her the photo, which she first posted to her Instagram stories before sharing it on TikTok. The video quickly went viral on the app, racking up more than 7.9 million views in less than a week and almost 5,000 comments from TikTok users – many of whom joked about the ordeal.
“(opens bag of Doritos) skims dupe,” read a comment with 20,000 likes.
“My 5 layer meaty purrito is at least 5 tortilla chips,” added another comment with 67,000 likes.
Even Urban Decay’s official TikTok account weighed in, writing, “pass the guac.”
According to Sarah, the jokes and series of double entendres caught her eye as the video began to gain popularity online.
“I was surprised when Urban Decay Cosmetics’ social media manager started getting in on the jokes,” said Sarah. “I’m waiting to see if Kim will comment.”
And while most of the comments were laughable, some TikTok users commented that the bralette would be a perfect fit for people with smaller bust sizes.
“FINALLY A BRA FOR ME,” one person wrote.
