Kim Kardashian may love to show off her cleavage and curves but in an interview with Elle UK, the reality star turned Mrs. Kanye West says that wasn’t always the case. Apparently Kim wanted smaller breasts when she was younger, despite many believing that Kim’s curves come courtesy of plastic surgery.
Although Kim loves to wear plunging necklines, bustiers, and anything else to show off her breasts—including going topless (and bottomless) for select magazines, Kim reveals that when she was younger, she wasn’t always comfortable with her body. However, her dad helped her to appreciate her big bust.
Kim tells Elle UK, “I was unhappy with my body – I developed really early. Every night I would sit in the bath and cry, I prayed my boobs would stop growing. When I was 13 my father wrote me a letter. He told me I had a body not many girls have, that later it would lead to attention from men, but that the most important thing was that I was a wonderful girl and I had to understand my self worth.”
And although Kim’s love of fashion made her envious of classic beauties, she takes credit for breaking the traditional mold and making buxom women popular.
“I grew up when the body to have was the tall, slim, supermodel one, like Cindy Crawford’s. No one looked like me. It’s good to break the mold and recreate one.”
Kim’s claims are interesting considering that most people believe that her famous curves and over the top breasts and bottom are the result of plastic surgery rather than natural development.
Her first ex-husband Damon Thomas reportedly told tabloids that he paid for Kim to have plastic surgery, including buttocks augmentation and breast implants and liposuction as well. Plastic surgeons have also supported claims that state Kim has had buttocks injections using fat deposits. Fat injections make an area larger when the person gains weight and Kim has clearly gained weight over the years, especially during her pregnancy. In addition, as a natural tissue, fat injections would not show up on an x-ray. Given Kim’s currently lumpy look, injections do seem to be likely.
Kim tells the magazine that she is now confident in her body (enough to appear fully nude in a non-pornographic magazine), “I am a confident woman, but I didn’t just arrive confident – it has built over the years and that is a big part of who I am now.”
However, recently Kim has struggled with her big body, especially after trying to lose weight after having a baby.
At one point Kim even used Twitter to find out about other new moms struggling with their bodies “do any of u moms see their bodies just not the same? a different shape?” she asked her 22 million followers. “ughhhh my hips & butt are huge now! they were big to begin with!”
Other stars have also said that they wished for smaller breasts, including Sophia Vergara and Katy Perry, both of whom are renowned for their stunning figures.none
