Kim Kardashian’s clothing brand, Skims, is known for minimalist styles in sculpting fabrics that define your curves.

And you can now take this signature silhouette poolside, as Skims is about to drop a range of swimwear designed to smooth and mould to the body.

The collection features an assortment of nine separates and one-piece styles, with each available in five core colours; marble, sienna, cocoa, gunmetal, and onyx.

This is so shoppers can mix and match the pieces that work best for them, from medium to full coverage on both top and bottom.

It’s also all available in sizes XXS to 4X, so no need to compromise on style or fit ahead of your next getaway.

Bikini top styles include bandeau, underwire, and tank, while bottoms include dipped-front, high waisted, short and skirt options.

As for one-pieces, there are tank and cami options to choose from.

As with the brand’s shaping underwear, everything is made using a comfortable yet lightly compressive fabric, keeping lumps and bumps under wraps without an overly tight feeling.

The high waisted bottoms and shorts provide thigh and tummy control, and the underwired bikini top is best for larger busts due to its sturdy straps and support.

The Skims Shaping Swim collection will be available to purchase exclusively from from Friday August 12.

Prices are along similar lines to what you’d normally expect from Skims, ranging from £54 to £108 depending on what you go for.

As ever, too, it’s likely that many staples will sell out fairly quickly, with Skims Shaping Swimwear already on style-savvy shoppers’ ‘hot girl summer’ wishlists.

For some, it’s a small price to pay to wow like Kim as you walk along the beach.
