Last September, Kylie Jenner graced us all with an entirely new brand. After releasing Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin, the reality TV star decided it was time to dive into the world of swimwear. And just a few months later, her big sis, Kim Kardashian, made the same decision when she announced that her brand SKIMS would be dropping a swim collection. It didn't come as a surprise when fans began comparing the two lines with one another. Except this time around, the fans pointed out the lack of inclusivity that Kylie Swim had when placed next to SKIMS Swim. Here's what one TikTok reviewer pointed out.

It's not new news that users on the social media platform were let down by Kylie's line. One TikTok user - a swimwear designer - shared her opinion on the "cheap" material the business mogul used to create the pieces. "I am completely and totally disappointed that these are completely see-through," she said. "I've seen the behind the scenes of what it takes to produce swimwear, and the fact that no one caught that this is completely see-through blows my mind." So, of course, fans were eager to see how SKIMS Swim would compare to Kylie's brand.

Luckily for those skeptical about purchasing the line, which includes a variety of options, user @hopescopeon shared a side-by-side review. And based on what she said, it seemed like SKIMS items were more favorable. “We all know the disaster that was Kylie Swim a few months ago,” Hope started off the video. “So I bought a bunch of the SKIMS swim that just came out to see how it compares.”

Almost immediately, the first thing she noticed was that Kim's bathing suits had way more coverage than Kylie's. This was major since a few months back fans weren't too happy about when they first tried on Kylie Swim and they noticed they may have been too exposed... if you know what we mean. "The periwinkle is SKIMS, and the orange is Kylie, and SKIMS is giving us coverage," Hope said while placing one bikini bottom on top of the other and showing a visible difference. "The difference in the quality on the stuff like the straps, the stitching — even the tags." We knew Kim wouldn't let us down! Check out the SKIMS line here to see how the reviews measure up.
