Kylie Jenner's swim line, named Kylie Swim, naturally, officially dropped on Sept. 17. Now that customers have had the opportunity to buy and test out the suits IRL, the reviews are rolling in...and they are NOT great. Many are complaining that the fabric is thin and practically see-through, that the seams are stitched sloppily, and that there are loose threads. On TikTok, the hashtag #kylieswim generates tons of videos of people giving their honest opinions, and a majority of them aren't pleased by the quality.
To recap, Kylie's debut swim line offered one-pieces featuring cutouts, as well as bikinis and sarongs, ranging in prices from $45-$85. The one-pieces were on the higher end of that range, and reviewers were especially disappointed with the products after spending a good chunk of change on them. One business owner Jessica Anderson, who has her own swim line 93 Play Street, said in a TikTok video:
"I am completely and totally disappointed that this is completely see-through. I've seen behind the scenes of what it takes to produce swimwear, and the fact that no one caught this blows my mind. For me it comes down to lack of integrity as a business owner and an entrepreneur."
She continued to say that when people are spending their hard-earned money on products, that they should be a high quality. "The fact that they gave this the thumbs up is really concerning to me."
Another TikTok reviewer shared that the fabric of the sarong is very heavy, so she couldn't tie it securely without it falling down. People were also concerned about the lack of coverage, specifically in the crotch area. "It really doesn't cover anything," user Laura Lee said. "One sudden move and everything's gonna be out. I would never wear this in public." And it's not just on TikTok. Twitter users also criticized the brand—and its creator.
Kylie has yet to respond to these claims, as she's also busy with her new Kylie Baby line that also launched this month. (Hopefully the reviews for those products are better than her swimwear.)
