Kim Kardashian In Trouble Over “Kimonos”

View this post on Instagram

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

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on


It’s no secret, Kim K likes to put her name on things. Make up, clothes, sunglasses, she’s done it all, being sure to steal headlines along the way. Her latest endeavor though has really raised eyebrows. She has launched a line of “shapewear” (underwear to anyone else), which she has called “kimono.” This has the whole of the internet screaming over cultural appreciation and lack of respect to the traditional Japanese garment.
