We all know that comfort is a key component of feeling yourself. So it’s smart to invest in reliable and versatile underwear and loungewear that also makes you feel hot as hell. This is the reason that the SKIMS Cotton Rib Boxer is all over your FYP.
Inspired by the men’s underwear staple, the SKIMS boxers are made from breathable cotton with a stretchy, ribbed design for a feel that’s sporty, comfy and flattering. People have been wearing these shorts as everything from loungewear, workout gear and summer street style.
Unfortunately, everyone wants a pair — so they’re constantly out of stock. Oh, and they cost way more than you’d think.
Lucky for us, the internet found an affordable alternative to the SKIMS boxers on Amazon that look just like the real thing. The best part? The dupe is actually a full set that comes with a top that looks a lot like the matching SKIMS Cotton Plunge Bralette.
While the SKIMS boxers retail for $32 — or a combined $68 with the bralette — the Ekaliy Women’s Workout Outfit 2 Pieces High Waist Set is only $27. The set is nearly identical to SKIMS and might even be comfier. It comes in 19 colors and ranges from a size S to XL.
Made from a soft blend of polyester and spandex with a stretchy, ribbed weave, the rib boxers are quick-drying and extremely breathable. They have a high-rise waist with a stretchy, elastic waistband for ultimate comfort fit. Meanwhile, the matching plunge bralette is supportive and stretchy with that signature “second skin” feel that everyone wants in loungewear.
One Amazon reviewer also called the Ekaliy set a SKIMS dupe and wrote, “I love this set! I got this for girlfriends for Christmas as well and have gotten a couple different colors. So freaking cute and flattering!”
Another reviewer agreed that the shorts look a lot like the SKIMS original but commented that they have a slightly different feel. “It is a more silky smooth material rather than the soft cotton. If you just want the look of SKIMS definitely get this set but if you want the same feel as SKIMS then this set is not the one!”
SKIMS makes its shorts with a blend of 95% cotton and 5% spandex. So they would definitely feel a lot softer than the material of the Ekaliy style, which is made of polyester. Still, the Ekaliy set is incredibly lightweight with a silky finish. Both materials are commonly used in athleisure and underwear. It’s really just a preference of whether you like the soft feel of cotton or the smooth finish of polyester.
And if you’re not feeling the boxers with the plunge bralette, there’s another SKIMS dupe on Amazon that comes in a set with a tank that looks just like the even-more-viral SKIMS Cotton Rib Tank. Peep it below!
