Kim Kardashian claims to have a 24-inch waist and 39-inch hips: do you believe her?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West celebrate Kendall Jenner's 22nd birthday

For months now, Kim Kardashian has been getting pap’d in outfits that involve the same kind of vibe: either a crop top or a midriff-baring tank, and skintight skirts or leggings. The focus for months has been on Kim’s stomach, is what I’m saying. I thought it was weird this whole time, because Kim’s best feature isn’t her waist – her best features are her surgically altered ass, her thin calves and ankles, and her always-slender arms. For this story, keep in mind two things: 1) Kim has ALWAYS lied about her size, her weight and what she gets surgically altered and 2) Kim cannot pick out clothes that flatter her figure to save her life. She’s short, naturally curvy and she’s given birth to two kids. No one expects her to saunter around like Karlie Kloss. Kim’s not that person. But she thinks she’s that person. Which is why Kim is claiming to have a 24-inch waist.

Forget talking about books — at Kim Kardashian’s inaugural book club meeting last year, all her sister Kourtney could focus on was Kim’s tiny waist. Kim shared a video from their book club meeting on her app on Monday, and before they could dive in to her selection, Embraced by the Light by Betty J. Eadie, Kourtney turned the discussion to Kim’s body.

“I can’t take your hips seriously right now,” Kourtney said to Kim. “Because your waist is so small and your hips are so big.”

Kardashian hairdresser and BFF Jen Atkin then asked Kim for her measurements, and Kim had Chrissy Teigen guess (she went with 23 inches).

“24,” Kim said, with a smirk.

“24? That’s insane,” Atkin replied.

“It’s never been 24 ever in my life,” Kim said, and after Atkin asked, added that her hips are 39 inches. After giving birth to son Saint West, 2, in Dec. 2015, Kim started on the Atkins Diet and jumpstarted her workout routine to get back to her pre-pregnancy shape, and lose the 70 lbs. she gained with Saint and daughter North, 4. But over the last year, Kim took her workouts and diet to another level with trainer Melissa Alcantara.

“Kim told me, ‘I love my body. I love the way it looks and I love my hips,’ ” Alcantara recently told PEOPLE. “She just wanted more muscle. She wanted bigger hamstrings, which accentuates the entire leg. And she wants those cut arms and abs!” Kim now works out with Alcantara six days a week at 6 a.m., and they focus on different areas of the body each day. “Kim has been getting some really nice results, like with her triceps!” Alcantara said. “She can’t believe how much has changed over the last few months. And when you’re in this deep, it’s hard to go back. She just keeps it up.”

The trainer added that Kim’s body goals have changed. “She didn’t want to be skinny. She wanted to have muscle and feel strong. And she wanted to find something she can do for the rest of her life,” Alcantara said. “I totally understood where she was coming from.”

[From People]

A waist that’s 24 inches and hips that are 39 inches? And a bust that’s probably 36 inches, just a guess. Do you believe that? I believe the hip measurement. I’m not sure if I believe the waist measurement. And even if I did believe the waist measurement, I wouldn’t believe that she got it through diet and exercise alone. Girl makes so many trips to the “dermatologist” every month – my guess is she’s just been getting her waist lipo’d and nothing else, which is why her hips are “normal size” for her frame/body type.

    She really must hate herself … in a way it’s kind of sad

    • Savasana Lotus says:

      I’ve always said she doesn’t like herself, but her personality disorder doesn’t make way for hatred. She does not feel emotions like normal people. She’s fixated on herself for sure, and feelings?…she fakes those. She definitely had a lot taken from her butt during her long coat lipo construction site years after North and Saint. She’s taken plenty out of her waist in several periods in her life.

    • jessicarabbit says:

      So sad what she is doing to her face and body. It just looks so unnatural. I heard of the rib removal surgery and how vain this family is, I am starting to believe it now. There is a picture of Kim floating around and half of ribs are missing while she is sucking in. You can see the top two ribs missing. So creepy what measures they will go through just to stay relevant. I feel bad for North <3

  2. Flk says:

    Of course I believe her! When has she ever lied?

    • Sabrine says:

      I wonder why she’s so focused on showing off her body. When you get to be a certain age, maybe it’s time to think about doing more productive things with your spare time.

      • Dolkite says:

        It’s because she has nothing else to offer. Think about it: her “job” is to take pictures of herself and get pregnant every now and then because people go crazy about babies. Her children are just props to shore up her “brand.”

      • me says:

        ALL her time IS spare time. Thank about it. She doesn’t have to cook, clean, take care of her own kids, do laundry, or even make sure all her bills, and other tasks are done. It’s all done for her. Her one true job is to keep getting work done on her body and posting pics proclaiming she’s “working hard”. That IS her life and how she makes money. It’s insane.

    • GossipGal says:

      I absolutely believe her! I mean, just look at her photos from when she was BFFs with Paris Hilton and her photos today – they’re exactly the same! There’s no way she’s ever had more than say, a tiny touch of Botox in her entire life!

      OK, I better stop before I strain my sarcasm muscles. Kim, just stop lying. You have never fooled anyone with your nonsense, and if we didn’t buy it last time we sure as hell aren’t going to start now. Your entire body is – at this point – made of lies.

  3. OriginalLala says:

    my bestie has a 26 inch waist and 38 inch hips and yeah, no way Kim….she seems to keep forgetting that her hip measurements would actually take into account her inflated butt so it’s def not 39inch.
    I never understand why she lies about her body so much, like..who cares if her waist isn’t 24 inches?

    • Runcmc says:

      How tall is your bestie? I have 39 in hips (and a 30 in waist, whatever) but I’m 5’8”. Kim’s like… 5 feet tall? I buy it. It’s not natural and I’ll never for a second believe she didn’t have EXTENSIVE hip/butt surgery, but I believe the measurements. I mean… she bought them.

      • Eden75 says:

        I normally run 26-27″ waist and 39-40″ hips and I’m a whopping 5′ almost 2″. I hope that my a$$ does not look like that. Seriously. I know I have junk in the truck but wow……

      • PoliteTeaSipper says:

        I’m 5’4 with 25 waist and 39 hips.

        I don’t believe it for a second. Kim’s lying.

      • Christin says:

        No doubt she bought them, but probably wants the masses to buy some workout. This bunch is all about selling something.

      • OriginalLala says:

        my bestie isn’t tall, maybe 5’2 or 5’3

      • teacakes says:

        I’m 5’5″ and had a 25 waist and 38 hip when I was younger, there is no way Kim is telling the truth.

    • broodytrudy says:

      I also have a 12 inch difference in waist and hips! Jeans are a PITA to find and I’ve been debating how appropriate it is for me to continue to wear maternity jeans because they fit better. Lol.

      Anyway, I believe her. Consider she’s got a 10 or 12 inch difference, then add her ass implants and those extra few inches aren’t hard to find.

    • HH says:

      Yeah, I can totally believe. I just don’t believe she achieved it naturally. Khloe and Kim are the only thinner people I know of who supposedly work out 5+ days a week and have no tone/definition. Unless they are doing cardio only, I just don’t get.

      • Hella says:

        Agreed – if she works her triceps six days a week for months and months, she would clearly exhibit at least SOME definition, right? Nope.

    • Jen says:

      I remember reading an article last year where she kept insisting she’s a size two. I think we all know she paid for most of her assets, she obviously wanted them, so why would you then insist you’re that small? Either way, who cares what size you are? It’s kind of pitiful.

      • JeanGray says:

        Depends on the clothes and material. I’m 5’8″ with a 27″ waist and 42″ hips. In A-line dressesor coats I’m a size 4 because of my waist. I can’t wear anything size 4 in jeans/pants or skirts. So she might not be completely lying lol

  4. Mar says:

    These people remove ribs so anything is possible. The amount of plastic surgery that this family goes under, nobody has their original parts. I am not going to credit Kim’s body ( which looks silly) to anything natural.

  5. BlueSky says:

    Yes I believe her. She also knows where Jimmy Hoffa is buried and how NASA faked the moon landing……

  6. Veronica Shields says:

    I mean…it’s entirely possible? She’s only 5’3. Voluptuous, yes, but she’s hardly big. I’m 5’7″, and at my thinnest, I was about a 30/31 in the waist. Shave about four inches off me and maintain my proportions, and I’d be close to that.

    I mean, would I be surprised that she was lying? No. But do I think she’s probably closer to that than not? Yeah.

  7. Astrid says:

    It might be true but it’s not “natural” from diet and exercise. I’m not impressed. She looks like a blow up doll

  8. Nancy says:

    She constantly looks like she is wearing a massive and filled nappie/diaper – vom

  9. Swack says:

    Maybe after she takes off one of her waist training corsets it may be 24″.

  10. Jazzie30 says:

    It’s possible. Granted, her butt may not be natural, but she is tiny. A 24” waist is plausible. I have a 25” waist at 5’8”.

  11. MissAmanda says:

    do we believe her?
    better question: does anybody give a sh*t?

    • LoveShoes says:

      Thank you for that. I will be so happy when they all disappear into oblivion. Plus I agree with the writer, this has all been cosmetically enhanced. There is nothing natural about her. And those kids will probably grow up to mass murderers. Who has their child take a photo of themselves topless????

      • naomipaige says:

        I’m counting the minutes. They certainly have been stretching their 15 mins. Sad part is, they are actually role models to seem people. Now that is darn scary!

  12. Nancy says:

    I don’t care if her measurements are real. I just can’t wrap my head around the fact that she loves her gigantic ass so much. How many times can she post those moons online before she thinks we’ve had our fill. A little late, but Full Moon with have been an appropriate name for one of her kids that she seems to have forgotten about. Chicago thinks she’s Milwaukee it’s been so long since she’s had any shine…lol

  13. gabbie says:

    i believe the waist measurement. it looks like that much of a difference and kim is really short so a 24 waist isn’t an insane thought with proportions. i think people see pictures and forget that’s not a 5’9 body.

  14. Reef says:

    Yes. She’s tiny with a fat transfered hips/butt.

  15. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I wasn’t gonna post cuz eh, it’s Krazy Kim, but I just saw Johnny Depp in a commercial for Savauge cologne. Ugh. He drives his black muscle car out of the city into an arid, deserty expanse, digs a hole and buries his accessories. Then looks off into the horizon wearing a knowing smirk. And his eyeliner. I’m loling so hard. It’s almost as funny as McConaughey’s cologne commercials, but not because Depp is deranged. Sorry, back to Kimmy Poo.

  16. m says:

    she’s about as all natural as a case of mountain dew soda.

  17. TurkeyLurkey says:

    I find it weird that Kim and her sisters can’t get through anything without sizing each other’s bodies up. It is like they are obsessed with each other’s bodies. That does not seem healthy to me. I wouldn’t want to be at book club to watch Kourtney drool over her own sisters body, too strange.

    • Nancy says:

      Kourtney is the only one with a body to drool over. She had implants young, but she is so well proportioned. She has three children and looks amazing. Kim should drool over her, but is too obsessed with herself.

      • Snowflake says:

        Yes, Kourtney has the best body IMO!

      • me says:

        You can tell Kourtney works out hard core and really eats super healthy. But yeah when you have a chef, nannies, maids, etc. and don’t have a 9 to 5 job, it’s a lot easier to do. Organic food is so expensive. I wonder if this family never got super rich and famous how they’d be living and what they’d be doing, and how they would look.

      • nb says:

        Agreed, Kourtney looks the most natural and you can tell she takes damn good care of herself. Kim’s waist lipo and butt implants are way too obvious, and Khloe’s butt of lies is just ridiculous (although the rest of her bod is great).

  18. trollontheloose says:

    I believe the length of her face is 24..

  19. Snowflake says:

    No, I don’t believe it. I have 39 in hips and I’m a size 10 to 12. She is way smaller. I don’t think there’s a 15 inch difference between her waist and hips.

  20. nikzilla says:

    I believe it but she’s been “working” at it and by that I mean, she’s been paying a doctor to help make it happen.

  21. Svea says:

    Rib removal?

    • PunkyMomma says:

      ^This, especially after having carried two children, the rib cage spreads a bit. Even with corseting, I don’t think you can achieve this look without a rib removal.

      • Pansy says:

        Are rib removals real or an urban legend?? A person having made the Hyppocratic oath will seriously remove a healthy bone??

    • isabelle says:

      Some women naturally have those measurements but Kim doesn’t have those measurements.

  22. Bridget says:

    Of course she loves her hips and butt, she paid for them. Now that she’s gotten them back under control (she’s like one giant cautionary tale for lipo – once that’s done, you’re screwed if you gain any weight again) she’s happy.

  23. Umyeah says:

    This infuriates me, you LIAR. How dare she claim she got that body through exercise and diet. She fully knows she has young followers and she is perpetuating this ridiculous lie without acknowledging the damage it is causing women. She and A$$ of lies need to go away

    • Rachel in August says:

      Have you ever known a Kardashian to be truthful? I mean aside from tremendous pressure on Kylie to get her to admit her lips are fake … from her sister Khloe no less, the biggest bullsh*tter out of all of them.

      • psl says:

        This is exactly why I don’t believe she was robbed. And she is naked, showing jewelry on her IG page again. It was all fake, just like her body parts.

    • Happy21 says:

      I 100% agree with you. What I absolutely loathe about this whole family more than anything else is that they lie about everything. Like we are all fools and idiots and should believe them. I hate being played for a fool and don’t like this family lying about all of the stuff they do to themselves and expecting that us stupid peasants take it as gospel.

      • Lady D says:

        I’m waiting for the day North starts lying. She already knows her mother lies, and probably grandma too. Kim’s going to be sooooo proud of her, although I bet she punishes her for being just like mommy.

      • jwoolman says:

        Lady D – the real trouble will come when Nori realizes mommy has been lying to her and about her. Right now she can still be manipulated. But the day will come when she will know.

  24. skyblue says:

    I’d bet there is a little cool sculpting involved.

  25. KBB says:

    She claims her butt happened naturally, so nothing she says can be trusted

  26. Emily says:

    I believe her waist is 24 inches IF her hips are 39 inches (because there is a sizable waist to hip ratio going on). Although, I have a 25.5 inch waist and 38.5 inch hips (at 5’3 and 116 lbs) and my proportions don’t look that exaggerated – plus my butt isn’t as ballooned.

  27. me says:

    If she got that tiny waist from diet and exercise, then why didn’t the rest of her “shrink” as well? How can you diet to lose weight but only lose it in the waist…yet her breasts, hips, and butt are still the same size. That’s now how weight loss works. It’s more than obvious she’s had fat sucked out of her waist and had it sculpted or something. I’ve seen pics she’s posted of herself at 14 and her waist wasn’t even that size then but she looked way more in proportion than now.

    • ThenThereIsThat says:

      I agree Me! The first place women usually lose weight is their bust and rear since that is where the biggest fat is deposited.

      When I eat healthy and lose weight my muffin-top is gone, along with my rear and boobs…

    • Wren says:

      Well, yeah. It’s been tweaked. Like everything else about her, “real” only means so much. I mean, it’s real in that she really does look like that, but HOW she looks like that isn’t a method most people could (or would) employ. Diet and exercise will take you far, but to totally change your natural proportions takes more than that. People do lose weight differently, but it is very uncommon to only lose weight in a certain spot. Very, very uncommon.

  28. sunnydeereynolds says:

    Kim gets a new face and body every year courtesy of her surgeons.

  29. Zip says:

    I kind of believe her. She is a short woman with a fake butt. I’m a bit shorter than her and my measurements come close to hers (my butt is 3 inches smaller but the waist is the same). It’s possible without looking super skinny..

  30. Peace out says:

    Her butt is so gross. It’s beyond not looking natural. It reminds me of a centaur

  31. Dee says:

    Those hips are not 39 inches. Maybe 49. I have 38 inch hips and am around the same height as Kim and look considerably smaller. Her ass alone is like 60 inches. Girl stop.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Not that it matters since it’s gross to sit here and dissect another woman’s body measurements in the first place but my hips are 45 inches. My waist is 31. Bodies are different.

      • Rachel in August says:

        And this IS Celebitchy, right? We’re allowed.

      • Dee says:

        But…this is what the post and all the comments are doing, i didn’t say anything about YOU, and I never would, because I don’t know you and you’re not a celebrity in the public eye that lives based off of lies.

  32. Rachel in August says:

    Interesting question. When has she ever told the truth? lol Her hip measurement wouldn’t be accurate because of all the fat injections in her butt and she’s had fat lipo’d out of wherever she doesn’t want it, so the waist measurement isn’t authentic either. I have trouble getting my head around just the fact that millions and millions of dollars roll in all because of a bad sex tape. And the levels of vanity in these family members, they’re astronomical.

    • me says:

      I was just thinking that the other day while watching E News. The amount of money this family has made all stemming from a sex tape. It’s unreal. I really wonder how they’d be living if they didn’t become famous…and what they’d look like with their original faces and body parts.

      • Rachel in August says:

        Good lord, don’t even go there, lol. I also have trouble that one of my favourite cosmetic brands, Estee Lauder, uses Kendall Jenner as their face. Ugh. It’s not a teenagers’ brand of cosmetics and skin care and never was.

  33. carol says:

    BS on the 24 inch hips. I have 26/26.5 inch hips and am pretty pear shaped with a thin upper body. like, super thin upper body and my hips are bigger, always have been. she is at least 27 inches. I don’t know what kind of tape measure she is using but really. 24 inch waist is enviable for runway models–no way Kim has that

  34. Plantpal says:

    I don’t care

  35. jessicarabbit says:

    3 Words : Rib Removal Surgery

  36. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Here’s a thought: who cares? Seriously. I’m not going to sit and dissect the measurements of another woman’s body. Period.

  37. psl says:

    When you get lipo every couple of months, of course it is possible.

    She was such a beautiful woman. It is sick and sad what she has done to herself. And I hate that she has daughters. I can’t think of a worse example to set for young girls. And the grown women who actually are fans of this person, and have daughters? They should be ashamed of themselves. I spew vitriol for this woman and her family, because they do influence many – and it is all a lie.

    • Suki says:

      She might find her daughter grows into the exact opposite of her. Sometimes, children who are in an environment of any kind of extremism (in the case of the Kartrashians, narcissism, vanity and materialism) completely rebel and go the opposite way.

  38. Thickgirl says:

    I’m a bigger girl (US size 14), and have a 32 inch waist and 44 inch hip. Pants are a b*tch to fit, I tend to gravitate to dresses or skirts to avoid drop crotch!

  39. hogtowngooner says:

    LOL bish please with those measurements.

    And stop talking about how “empowered” you are when you post nude photos, then claim diet and exercise when everyone with more than two brain cells to rub together can see you’re all plastic. You’re empowered by attention and playing victim when you get called out.

  40. SLP says:

    Having had my rib cartilage harvested for reconstructive nose surgery this last year—I never believe anyone when they say someone has had elective rib removal. That recovery time would be insane. P.S. Now I can breathe through my nose and hopefully start using my cpap soon.

  41. Imagine says:

    Wow, heaven forbid a woman get props for working so hard to look how she wants to look! Heaven forbid she be allowed to dress as she wants! She has the money for a trainer and always posts about working out. I think it’s pretty shallow for it to be written off as only doctors and that her looks is all she has to offer. Shame on y’all

  42. reverie says:

    I believe her because’s not very tall, something around 5’1.

    As for those who say they have similar measurements and don’t look like her… guess what? Kim isn’t the only person who you have the same measurements as and don’t look like.

    My waist is 26, my hips are 36 but I look like her from the front view. This is because my hips are very wide and my stomach is flat… AND my butt is flat. Turn me to the side and I am sadly lacking, haha. There’s a lot going on when it comes to that hip measurement. Hip width, stomach and bum all factor in.

  43. perplexed says:

    It seems like everyone in Hollywood claims to have a 24 inch waist. That seems to be the special number they like to fixate on.

  44. Ozogirl says:

    Where exactly is she measuring her hips? Because with that big fake rear, there’s no way it’s 39 inches. I’d say more like 44.

  45. Paris says:

    Liar Liar Pants On Fire…

  46. Berry says:

    I feel sorry for Kim’s daughters. It will be a miracle of one of those girls doesn’t have major plastic surgery by the time she’s in her mid-teens.

  47. Shannon says:

    What I can’t believe is that they were talking about body measurements at a MF BOOK CLUB. Wtf?! Respect the books!

  48. Tara Beth says:

    Why lie? My waist was 24 and hips 36 when I was 23 years old, and I was definitely a lot scrawnier than her. Her hips look like they’re closer to 42.

  49. cathy says:

    I really don’t give a crap about this woman. I do not understand how she makes so much money.

  50. Jordan says:

    I actually think the dress with the cut out fits her curves the right way.
