To the amusement of the internet, 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 chance” on Skims Fits Everybody Micro Thong and Micro Triangle Bralette, which cost about $40 in total.
“So, if you’ve been eyeing the SKIMS micro bikini and wondering about the size, these are tortilla chips for scale,” Sarah said. She included a photo of the comparison, which showed the bralette cups and thong’s front covered by individual chips.
Sarah later tried the bralette and micro thong set and shared her thoughts in a follow-up video.
Representatives for Skims did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
Sarah made a TikTok about the bralette and micro thong after her boyfriend and friend playfully referred to it as ‘the Dorito bikini’
Sarah, a 28-year-old software engineer, told Insider that she decided to take a chance on the silver bralette and micro thong after they went on sale. She’d previously purchased the bralette in two separate colors for a summer music festival but tried the micro thong once the undergarment arrived to her home after a recent order.
“I laughed very hard at how small it was,” Sarah said. “I was surprised at how small the bottoms were, especially when I tried them on over clothes. It was all string.”
The idea to share the size comparison on TikTok sparked after Sarah’s boyfriend, Ryan, and their mutual friend, Sean, poked fun at the bralette and micro thong.
“My boyfriend Ryan and our best friend Sean were calling it the Dorito bikini when I wore the top initially,” Sarah said. “We were crying laughing at the size of the bottoms, and he pulled the tortilla chips out of the cabinet and made a comparison. The chips were bigger than all of 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 soon went viral across the app, garnering more than 7.9 million views in less than a week and nearly 5,000 comments from TikTok users — many of whom joked about the ordeal.
“(opens bag of Doritos) skims dupe,” one comment with 20,000 likes read.
“My beefy 5 layer purrito is at least 5 tortilla chips,” another comment with 67,000 likes added.
Even Urban Decay’s official TikTok account weighed in, writing: “pass the guac.”
According to Sarah, the jokes and array of doubleentendres stood out to her when the video started gaining traction online.
“I was surprised when Urban Decay Cosmetics’ social media manager started getting in on the jokes,” Sarah said. “I’m waiting to see if Kim will give a reaction.”
And while most of the comments were for laughs, some TikTok users noted that the bralette would be a perfect fit for those with smaller chest sizes.
“FINALLY A BRA FOR ME,” one person wrote.
