Kim Kardashian On Her Body: 'It's A Work In Progress'
There’s a reason Kim Kardashian has the confidence to be photographed in bikinis–and even mom jeans. Her secret? She actually likes to sweat. “It probably sounds weird, but for me, there’s nothing better than getting up and going right to the gym,” reveals Shape‘s cover girl in this month’s issue. The 29-year-old gets candid about her own body issues, including being the first girl in her peer group to develop curves.“All my friends were super skinny, and that just wasn’t my body type.” Luckily, Kim was able to draw inspiration from her mother, Kris Jenner. “I watched my mom, who was always comfortable with herself, and she helped me with my outlook: I have curves and that’s never going to change, so I’d better start embracing them or I’m going to have a miserable life,” says Kim, who admits, “It took me a while, but I finally caught on.” But just like the rest of us, Kim does have a few nagging issues. “I have cellulite, just like almost every other woman on the planet,” says the reality star, who recently designed a line of swimwear with her sisters Khloe and Kourtney. “And just because I feel secure with my body doesn’t mean I think cellulite is cute! It will always be an issue for me. So let’s just say it’s a work in progress!” For more from Kim, pick up the latest issue of Shape or visit shape.com. –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley
