Kim Kardashian West announced the release of her new line of shapewear called Kimono Solutionwear on Tuesday, and it was met with both positive and negative responses. While some took issue with the promo photos and the brand’s name, others praised the shapewear for its unique design and wide range of nine shades.
The design that caught the most attention was the “solution short,” which Kardashian West said was designed to be worn with dresses and skirts that feature a thigh-high slit.

The design features an asymmetrical design, with one leg shorter than the other. Kardashian West tweeted that she used to cut her shapewear when wearing dresses or skirts with a slit, which inspired the idea behind this design.
The “solution short” even caught the attention of Chrissy Teigen, who seemed excited to no longer have to cut her own shapewear anymore. Others called the design “genius” and a “game changer.”
The idea of having one side shorter than the other is genius.

The idea of shapewear made specifically for skirts and dresses with slits makes sense for Kardashian West’s brand, as the star often turns to that design
She notably wore the look in February when she stepped out in a vintage Thierry Mugler dress for the 5th Annual Hollywood Beauty Awards.
She wore a shimmering dress with a thigh-high slit while in New York City in December 2018.
She hit the red carpet of the MTV Movie and TV Awards in June 2018 wearing a shimmering silver skirt with a slit.
No official release date or prices have been set for Kimono Solutionwear, though a waitlist is available on the official website.
Representatives for Kimono Solutionwear did not immediately respond to INSIDER’s request for comment.
