A TikTok user by the name of Angelina Wiley revealed that she survived a shooting after her SKIMS bodysuit was so tight that it kept her from bleeding out. Kim Kardashian shared the fan's video on her Instagram Story, earlier this week.
“Kim Kardashian saved my life,” Wiley began in the clip. “This New Year’s, I got shot four times. The night I got shot, under my dress, I was wearing a Skims shaping bodysuit. It was so tight on me that it literally kept me from bleeding out.” She then described the shapewear as “body armor for women.” Wiley added that she’s “definitely gonna buy some more” and that she “should wear it every day.”
