Kim Kardashian Introduces Shapewear Line, Kimono
One of the best kept secrets to women’s fashion isn’t even visible on the outside. The power is in the undergarments! Reality TV star/serial entrepreneur Kim Kardashian-West admits that shapewear plays a huge part in keeping her curvy body intact underneath her fashion-forward pieces. So much, in fact, she’s started her own line of shapewear called, Kimono.
Kim introduced her latest project with an Instagram post showcasing her pieces of several different skin tones and cut-outs. Her caption read:
“@kimkardashian Finally I can share with you guys this project that I have been developing for the last year.
I’ve been passionate about this for 15 years. Kimono is my take on shapewear and solutions for women that actually work…I would always cut up my shapewear to make my own styles, and there have also been so many times I couldn’t find a shapeware color that blended with my skin tone so we needed a solution for all of this.”
“The third pic is the solution short. I developed this style for all of those times I wanted to wear a dress or skirt with a slit and still needed the support. Introducing Kimono Solutionwear™ for every body. Coming Soon in sizes XXS – 4XL in 9 shades. I can’t wait for you to feel this fabric! #KimonoBody @kimono Photos by Vanessa Beecroft”
Ironically, Kim Kardashian recently came under fire for the very thing she’s selling. Underneath her sexy, wet Thierry Mugler MET Gala look was a binding corset. The piece was so tight that she had to take breathing lessons to successfully pull off the snatched look.
Kim K dished:
“7 months in the making and fittings in Montreal, Paris and LA. Corset breathing lessons from none other than Mr. Pearl. It was worth it all!!!”
