"I have never felt pain like that": Kim K opens up about Met Gala corset

Kim Kardashian has opened up about her 2019 Met Gala look, and the tortuous pain it brought her. 

The Thierry Mugler dress involved waist-shrinking, tight undergarments which left "indentations" on her back and stomach, with the star saying of the corset; "I have never felt pain like that in my life."

The high fashion soirée often involves uncomfortable looking couture outfits donned by celebrities aching to reach the Best Dressed lists, but the reality star seemed to go too far with her own look.

In a recent interview with WSJ. Magazine, the beauty and fashion mogul opened up about the impossibly painful Mr Pearl undergarment, and shut down rumours that she'd had ribs removed to fit into the frock.

Regarding those ridiculous whispers online, she said to the publication; "I don’t even know if that’s possible." Wearing the outfit sounds like tough going, though. 

"I’ll have to show you pictures of the aftermath when I took it off- the indentations on my back and my stomach," she added, referencing the horrible effect the garment had on her body.

How long the indentations lasted wasn't said by Kardashian, but they don't sound like a party. Corsetier Mr Pearl created the body-hugging piece, which was met with criticism for promoting "unrealistic beauty standards" and "an unnatural figure".

Kim's personal trainer, Melissa Alcantara, defended her after the gala, and emphasised the work which the reality star puts into her body.

"Kim trains her ass off 6 days a f*cking week, she wakes up early AF and is dedicated," she wrote in on her Instagram Story.

The entrepreneur has also just released her first shapewear range, controversially named Kimono despite having nothing to do with Japanese garments.

The KKW Beauty founder launched a 'solutionwear' line but had to rename the venture after backlash against the culturally insensitive name.

The new moniker hasn't been revealed yet, but she has announced her Sooo Fire make-up range featuring a 10-pan metallic eyeshadow palette, three eyeliners and three lip glosses with a new formula.
