Kim Kardashian lit up social media on Friday afternoon when she shared a beautiful bikini photo with her 142 million Instagram followers.
The wife of Kanye West looked very slim in a white two-piece string that barely contained her curves. The photo was taken during her vacation in Costa Rica earlier this month.
This is after the mother of four had responded to the recoil that she had received by calling her shapewear collection Kimono.
Hello weekend! Kim Kardashian lit up social media on Friday afternoon when she shared a beautiful bikini photo with her 142 million Instagram followers
The siren took a selfie in her bathroom mirror while she put her hand on her forehead.
The star also shared a photo of her feet in white sneakers while she was sitting on a training device. She said she was in pain in a particularly debilitating gym session.
The daughter of Kris Jenner seemed to have a very small waist. She has been on a protein and vegetable diet for a year.
The 38-year-old perfume and makeup magnate has also worked daily with personal trainer Melissa Alcantara who is also known as Fit Gurl Mel.

In 2018, Kim said: “My trainer Mel always says you should eat simple carbohydrates, such as sweet potatoes, and small amounts of fat and protein, such as chicken, before and after training.
& # 39; You also need to have vegetables with your meals because you need them to help effectively break down and absorb your protein, fat, and carbohydrates. & # 39;
Kim, keeping her weight at 119 pounds, looked her smallest at the Met Gala in May, where she had a corset to help show off her little belly.

Earlier this week, Kim came under fire for her Kimono Solutionwear.
She said she & # 39; no plans & # 39; has to manufacture the traditional Japanese garment, after which her company is named, she said TMZ.
& # 39; Her trademark of the Kimono name only applies to her company & # 39 ;, the sources of the gossip site say, adding that it just plays for the first name of the socialite.
It is also not the only copy of the word used to market unrelated products, with Kimono Lash, Kimono Restaurant, and Kimono Condoms all registered in the United States.
Kanye West's wife was accused of not respecting Japanese culture after launching a new underwear brand named after a traditional garment.

Reality star Kim announced on Tuesday that she will be bringing Kimono Intimates as a shapewear line.
The entrepreneur said the brand celebrates and enhances the shape and curves of women when they made the announcement on social media.
She shared three photos of her Kimono Solutionwear shoot while posing next to models, and added long subtitles to talk about her new venture that she said would come soon.
But Japanese people say the trademarked brand does not respect traditional 15th-century kimono clothing.
Controversy: Kardashian [L] has & # 39; no plans & # 39; to manufacture the traditional Japanese garment, after which her company is named, say TMZ
As part of the new range, Kim said the brand would have a shortened leg to wear under a skirt with a side slit
A social media user wrote: & # 39; I feel very sad that the name & # 39; & # 39; Kimono & # 39; & # 39; is used to be something very different from what we know Japanese. Kimono is Japanese traditional clothing and we are very proud of its history and culture. I am sorry but I feel that this name choice is simply ignorant. #KimOhNo. & # 39;
Professor Sheila Cliffe of the Jumonji Women & # 39; s University in Niiza, Japan, said the kimono was in fact the opposite of imaginative shapewear.
She told me BBC: & # 39; The [aesthetic] shape of the kimono is graceful, elegant and gentle. It is not openly revealing or embracing. It wraps the carrier so that they are not exposed.

& # 39; If I made a bra and called it a sari … some people would be very irritated. It shows extreme contempt. [the Kimono] is an expression of Japanese identity. That word is not from Kim Kardashian. & # 39;
The kimono, dating back to the 15th century in Japan, literally means & # 39; thing to wear on the shoulders & # 39 ;, is a T-shaped wrapped garment with loose long sleeves tied with a sash.
Considered the national dress of Japan, it is now usually worn on special occasions such as weddings and age ceremonies, and is usually worn by women.

Kardashian said the new range of underwear & # 39; celebrates and improves women's shape and curves & # 39;
Those who tend to wear a kimono every day are older men and women, geisha & sumo wrestlers, who are required to wear traditional Japanese clothing when they appear in public.
Kardashian registered the Kimono brand in the US last year under the names & # 39; Kimono Body & # 39 ;, & # 39; Kimono Intimates & # 39; and & # 39; Kimono World & # 39 ;.
Many in Japan are angry that the star Keeping Up With Kardashians has a trademark of a word that has such cultural significance for the country.
When announcing the launch on Instagram, Kim wrote: & # 39; Finally I can share with you this project that I have developed over the past year.
& # 39; I have been passionate about this for 15 years. Kimono is my view on shapewear and solutions for women who really work. & # 39;
