Kim Kardashian's SKIMs shapewear credited with saving fan's life after being shot
Kansas City, Missouri - A 22-year-old woman is crediting Kim Kardashian with saving her life after the reality star's shapewear line helped prevent her from bleeding out after being shot.
Talk about an endorsement!
On January 1, Wiley was shot four times while wearing some of the brand's famous skin-tight shapewear.
"It was so tight on me that it literally kept me from bleeding out," she said in her video.
Wiley declared she was definitely going to buy more, joking that the brand should be considered "body armor for women."
"Call it fate, or Jesus, but Imma call it Kim."
Though she didn't reveal which specific body suit she was wearing, the brand has a wide range of ultra-tight shapewear designed to create a smoother appearance for one's body.
Kardashian shared Wiley's video on Sunday, adding "Wowww" and a prayer hand emoji. The original TikTok has now been viewed over 1.5 million times.
The Hulu star launched SKIMs back in 2019. Quite the fan of shapewear herself, Kardashian revealed that the desire to create her own brand came out of necessity.
Kim Kardashian's SKIMs brand is worth over $3 billion
Speaking with Time Magazine last month, Kardashian revealed would often dye shapewear with tea bags to achieve a color matching her own skin, a shade that was rarely available from other brands.
