TikTok user Ashton (@radiantlygolden) explained: “I am an ambulatory wheelchair user, meaning I can move my legs, I can walk certain days more than others.”

Ashton was inspired to try the Skims adaptive underwear after the Candace Owens controversy, which saw the author criticize the brand’s inclusive ad campaign.

“I saw that ad and I was like ‘Oh my God, I didn’t even know that Skims made an adaptive line,'” the TikToker explained in her video.

For her first look, Ashton tried on the $18 adaptive Fits Everybody brief in the color Clay.

Showing viewers the underwear before trying it on, she said: “You can already tell these are high leg so we will see what kind of coverage it has on the sides.”

Ashton pointed out the issue with I-shaped hooks on the sides of adaptive underwear.

“They’re like normal hooks on bras but I find sometimes that can be a little difficult if you have arthritis in your hands or issue with motor skills,” she explained.

The stylish influencer explained that she would show her followers the underwear while in her chair and also while standing.

“Obviously everyone’s needs are different, I’m going to stick one leg through. I am bringing it around and then we’re going to hook over here,” Ashton said as she put on the underwear.

“So the first thing I noticed that I am obsessed with is that the material is so thin and practically not there,” she told her followers.

The content creator explained that because of the high leg, “there’s not a tone of coverage.”

Ashton continued: “I have an apron belly. It’s very stretchy so in that respect, it’s easy to get on.”

The TikTok user then stood up to show viewers the coverage from different angles.

“There could stand to be more fabric in my opinion right here. I don’t have much of a butt but if you did have some junk in the trunk, I still think it’s very stretchy. I ordered in a 4X,” she said.

In a second video, Ashton tried on the $18 adaptive Fits Everybody thong in the color Cielo.

“I can already tell the coverage on this is going to be very limited. There is very little coverage up front,” the influencer said as she showed her followers the underwear.

“Here’s my apron belly, it’s not going to cover that. With the 4X sizing that I went up in I think the briefs obviously had better coverage,” she continued.

Ashton concluded: “Super super stretchy, do you see how stretchy this is? Incredibly stretchy.”

The content creator added: “I’m so thankful not only for the representation from Skims in their ad campaign but also for making some adaptive clothing in the first place.”

TikTok users took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the underwear.

“Thank goodness for inclusive items for you! I can’t imagine how hard it is! You are awesome for sharing!” wrote one viewer.

Another follower said: “I honestly love Skims for this!! It’s so crazy to see a big brand do this. It’s usually smaller brands.”

“Thanks for sharing!! I love Skims underwear and I love that they make these,” commented a third person.
