I tried the viral lopsided shapewear shorts from Kim Kardashian's SKIMS line and they did not live up to the hype

INSIDER Logo By Chloe Pantazi of INSIDER | Slide 1 of 23: 
  In September, Kim Kardashian
  West released her solutionwear line, SKIMS, previously
  named Kimono. Following
  scrutiny over the brand's initial name, Kardashian West
  apologized and changed the name.
  
  The brand's name aside, its products seemed cleverly
  designed, so I tried a couple of them: the Solution Short ($42),
  a one-sided item designed to be worn with a thigh-high slit, and
  the Bandeau Bra ($20), a seamless strapless bra.
  
  The Solution Short's lopsided concept made it easy to wear
  with a slitted skirt, but I wished it was reversible; depending
  on which version you buy (#1 or #2), it can only be worn with a
  slit on one leg.
  
  In my experience, the short also felt flimsy and too tight;
  if you're between sizes like me, I'd go up a size.
  
  I didn't expect to love the bra, but ended up preferring it
  to the Solution Short. While I wouldn't wear it every day, or
  rely on it for support, it's a cozy alternative to wearing an
  underwire bra for lounging.
