Kim Kardashian wears shapewear every day to 'feel secure'

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian wears shapewear every day so she can "feel secure" about her body.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star launched Skims, her very own solutionwear collection, earlier this month, with sales of the line reportedly topping $2 million (£1.6 million) in one day.

Now, Kim has revealed that she was inspired to create her own shapewear in an effort to combat body confidence issues she had, and confessed she would even wear two pairs of Spanx after welcoming her first two children; daughter North, six, and three-year-old son Saint.

"I use my shapewear as my lining, my slip," she told "After I had kids, I would double up - I don't think I'd have to do that now. But, I'm also the type that when I see really bad pictures of me in a bikini and see cellulite, I'll think, 'O.K., I'm finding a bodybuilder to work me out and really tighten me up.'"

Despite wearing daring outfits, including her barely-there Thierry Mugler couture gown for the 2019 Met Gala in May, Kim candidly shared she still has days where she doesn't feel comfortable with her body.

"Body confidence for me isn't just always masking it, it's also saying, 'O.K., I want to eat healthier, I want to motivate myself.' I literally use shapewear as my normal bra and underwear. It is my every day, it is my, 'I feel secure in it.' In the weirdest way, it's just become a part of my everyday life and has become a part of my clothes," the 38-year-old stated. "It's in the lining of my dresses and if I'm wearing a suit that has any wool in it, I have to wear solutionwear so that I'm not itching. It's more than that even, shapewear is a layer of my clothes."
