Kim Kardashian’s Skims promotional video that went viral for featuring the reality star’s seemingly retouched waist was a result of a mistake that took place while it was being uploaded, Page Six confirmed.
The outlet has also confirmed that the main ad shows Kim dragging her finger up her body after highlighting her Skims Fits Everybody underwear, which is different from the viral TikTok video, the ad that was originally meant to be aired wasn’t edited on the model’s hand and waist.
A spokesperson for Skims said Monday, “The Skims commercial that aired last week featuring the Fits Everybody collection did initially have an error as a result of the video losing its quality during the uploading process.
“Immediately after it was noticed by the team, the video was pulled, and the glitch-free version was uploaded and ran for the remainder of the time on air. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused Kim and our customers.”
According to another source, Kim specifically requested that her waist should not be edited for the ad and that no part of her body was digitally retouched according to her request, that the upload process caused the error.
The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star has been working on various promotional ads for her billion-dollar wearable company which she launched in 2019.
“KIM CAUGHT IN ‘SOFTEST PJS EVER,’” says the front page of “Skims Weekly,” a fictional tabloid with fonts and layouts that look strikingly similar to ours. “She’s ‘obsessed,’ sources say.”
