KIM Kardashian has revealed that she’ll never view her cellulite positively.
The 38-year-old reality star opened up about her insecurities during an interview with Wall Street Journal, where she discussed her controversial shapewear line, formally known as ‘Kimono’.

She admitted: “I’ll never be a person who says it’s a more positive thing if I show my cellulite. The feeling when I had to wear that corset, [the shapewear] is not that. It’s the second skin that makes me feel comfortable and cosy and all smoothed.”
She added: “I love to be sucked in.”
Kim also revealed how her pregnancies with North, five, and Saint, three, left her feeling insecure, after she was mocked for her weight due to unflattering photos.
“[I got] photographed from every angle. All I have to do is type Kim and Shamu,” she explained.

She continued: “That really changed my security. It broke my soul for a while.”
Kim has been criticised for hiding her cellulite in the past, after pictures emerged of her un-airbrushed bikini body on holiday in Mexico in 2017.
The pictures have given fans a rare glimpse of the star looking glowing and natural without her Glam Squad of hair stylists and make-up artists, who are always on hand at home to get Kim ready.
But, some of Kim’s fans turned on her and said that they felt ‘misled’ by her previous picture perfect social media snaps.

The mum-of-four lost more than 100,000 Instagram followers as a result and sparked a media storm.
However, Kim later claimed that the holiday photos had been Photoshopped to make her look ‘way worse’ than she is.
During an appearance on US TV show The View, she said: “I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were Photoshopping them and sharpening them.
“I was already not feeling like myself and when people were like sharpening them and making them look way worse and then those were going around.”

And later that year Kim opened up about her body insecurities while discussing the Mexico photos on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Peering at the photos on her phone while sunbathing, she said: “I don’t get it, I literally don’t look like this.
“Like, I’m so insecure, I just can’t take it.”
Getting emotional, Kim added: “You take pictures and people just body shame you. It’s like literally giving me body dysmorphia…

“I can’t have fun after seeing those pictures, there’s other pictures where I look so good and it’s just from a different angle.”
She added of pictures: “If they’re not perfect, people body shame you and criticise you…for people to think that that’s OK is so frustrating.
“I’m going to literally go inside and start untagging myself in everything.”
However, it seems that Kim is feeling a lot more body confident of late as she’s regularly spotted flaunting her toned figure while out and about.
Last year, The Sun Online revealed that Kim had begun working out six times a week after starting a gruelling diet and fitness regime.
Kim joined forces with bodybuilder Melissa Alcantara after seeing the unflattering pics of herself on the beach in Mexico.
Melissa revealed that Kim begins her day at 6am with a mixture of low-intensity internal training, weight training and high-intensity interval training.
