Hello, Curves! Kim Kardashian’s Body Evolution Through the Years


Beauty, brains and body — Kim Kardashian has it all! For more than a decade, the reality star has been turning heads with her curves at every event she’s attended and all over her social media.

The KKW Beauty founder started showing off her stylish figure when she first gained attention as Paris Hilton‘s devoted sidekick, donning formfitting numbers on the red carpet, gowns with high leg slits and itty-bitty bikinis at the beach. As her own stardom began to grow with her family’s reality series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the California native eventually landed on a signature look.

Kardashian married rapper Kanye West in May 2014, nearly one year after welcoming her first child, daughter North. When she walked down the aisle in Florence, Italy, the entrepreneur stunned in a custom Givenchy Haute Couture gown designed by her go-to designer, Riccardo Tisci.

In December 2015, Kardashian gave birth to son Saint and was eager to snap back to her pre-baby weight. Within six months, she told E! News that she had reached her goal after supplementing her workout regimen with the Atkins diet.

“I think I’m almost at 70 [pounds] down,” she told the outlet in July 2016. “I’ve recently gone into extra gear, just staying more focused. You do get comfortable and then you start to get off track a little bit but I’ve kind of like pumped it up a little bit, just started to stay focused and follow the Atkins diet again. I feel like I lost another last few pounds that I really had to lose so that makes me happy.”

The SKIMS founder and the “Stronger” rapper share two more children, daughter Chicago and son Psalm, who were welcomed via surrogate in January 2018 and May 2019, respectively. After spending time wrangling her four little ones, Kardashian committed herself to getting into tip-top shape ahead of the 2019 holidays.

“Kim is really focused on getting back to her goal weight and to a place where she feels totally fit and comfortable with her body,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively after the social media mogul gained “18 additional pounds” before November 2019. “She has been working out very diligently, so she can feel like ‘herself’ again and wear the items she wants to without worrying about how they will fit.”

The reality star filed for divorce from West in February 2021 after six years of marriage. Kardashian continued to show off her toned physique via social media, however, sharing snaps in her Skims cotton collection the same day her divorce news broke on February 19.
