Kim Kardashian Shows Off Her Bikini Body For the Cover of Life & Style

Do You Appreciate Kim's Honesty About Her Body?

Kim Kardashian is sick of people making assumptions about her body so she posed in a bikini for the cover of Life & Style without any airbrushing. She gave her exact measurements (35-26-40) and said, "I love my body the way it is. I'm not perfect. I have cellulite, so what." She goes on to talk about being different sizes depending on the article of clothing. Kim received some criticism for her photoshopped Complex magazine shoot, but she's putting in a lot of effort to show how comfortable she is with herself. So tell us — do you appreciate Kim's honesty about her body?

It's so funny and mind-boggling to me how everyone seems to obsess like c-r-a-z-y over dress sizes. Also, people are really quick to present their own measurements as PROOF as it this was a friggin' court case. Why is this so important? Who is getting hurt here? The whole story, comments et al, is a text book example of extreme narcissism, not only on Kim's part but also on the American (or should I say blogging?) society as a whole.

i have the same exact measurements! How the hell can she be a size 2? I am only 2 inches taller than her and I am a size 5! Appreciate the honesty but at least be honest about your dress size!

I applaud her for doing it although it seems a bit contrived ... like a lot of ppl are doing this lately ... it almost seems like they don't do it to be a role model but to feel better for themselves. Also I ahve almost the exact measurements she does, only I think i'm taller with bigger boobs, and I am nowhere near a size 2 ... 40 inches at the hip is not a size 2. The smallest I can fit in is a 4 (if its a huge 4) but I'm generally a size 6.

Um...what!? Are you saying she's obese? I'm confused, promoting obesity has nothing to do with this...

yes, we should be accepting of a range of body shapes and sizes but obesity and being significantly overweight should not be acceptable. Not only does it kill people it costs our country millions. This country tries to be based on personal responsibility and people are abusing it.

ok, i'm all for body pride, etc. well, enough, she's famous for a SEX TAPE and nothing else, well, he dad. but seriously, do we need her and her family to be in the 'news' all the time? i'm getting bored.

...Oh and there are wayy more girls in the world who are obese than who are anorexic, so maybe this "love your cellulite" thing isn't such a great idea. I think encouraging girls to love their body is a good idea, as long as they are healthy! Exercising, and eating healthy. Not overweight, or underweight.

Oooooookay. First off- no way her waist is a 26. I'm 5'3" weigh 102 lbs and my waist is 25. She's like twice my size! Have you seen her thighs!?!?! Plus- If you wear a 2 there's no way you have 40 inch hips! And her derrrier area is probably about 45 inches!... Are we supposed to applaud her for admiting she has cellulite, when she won't even admit her real size?!

foudini--it thrills me that you think she has a hot body, but i reposted the pics and someone IMMEDIATELY said, "shes fat." so even if some people think oh wow her body is amazing, some people still have this twisted idea of what a nice body IS. seeing that she can show her body like that and have people think shes hot is the part that i like, because i have curves like that and its nice to know its considered 'hot.' unfortunately, not by some. :( so i guess im just glad she put this out there to show that her body type CAN be a lot of twisted standards out there, some people think super skinny is the only hot type.

Uh while the sentiment could be positive, Kim has a bangin' body and doesn't need to be one of those "Oh I'm so hot but you should love your lumpy body" morons. Give me a break. Like she has a problem looking hot or getting hot guys who can have anyone (Reggie anyone?). I'm tired of these women acting like they are doing some great sacrifice by saying this garbage and trying to act like they "relate to the little people" when clearly they have no problem body-wise. (Not saying they don't think they do or don't, just saying I have a hard time believing it's that difficult for them.) It comes out as condescending, in my opinion. She should just acknowledge how darn hot her figure is, shapely with lots of T & A, and that her cellulite is so nil that it barely registers. Love her bod, just not her message.

I don't get why people have to strip and show off their bodies, I mean for someone who's declaring that they're secure about the way they look, isn't it a bit too insecure to try to prove incessantly. I agree with Debbie00486 that she has nothing to do but do meaningless photo shoots. As for people praising her and rooting for more curvaceous people on the cover. Yes, they do project a better body image but do we really need to look up to Kim Kardashian who's famous for..?
