Skims has become my new go-to when it comes to shapewear. I love their products, and I greatly admire how they have been setting new beauty standards for everybody, whether you are a size two or 2X.
If you have ever ordered from this solutions-oriented company, you know that their shapewear is genius in how it fits any figure. But sometimes, things don’t fit quite right, or they look different than you expected. When purchasing online, it’s not uncommon to run into this snag.
So, what about Skim’s return policy? How does that work?
All domestic orders from Skims can be returned within 30 days of the time you received the product for a store credit or full refund.
Keep reading to learn more about Skim’s return policy and what you can expect if you are looking for a refund.

Sales climbed almost immediately; as of January 2022, it was valued at more than 3.2 billion dollars.
What is Skim’s Return Policy?
Domestic orders from Skims must be returned in 30 days from the day you received the product for a store credit or refund. The product must not be worn or washed and must also be in its original condition, with all liners and tags attached.
You also need to be sure to include the original packing slip with your return. If you are returning multiple items, do not combine them, as it will slow up the process on the company’s end.
The company also asks that you wear your underwear when you try on your purchase for cleanliness reasons.
If the company sees that any of the above-mentioned factors of the return policy are not followed, it can deny the return.
