- Kim Kardashian reveals what her Met Gala corset did to her body, admitting that she's never been in so much pain
- The fitted bodice worn underneath her Mugler dress was so tight that the star needed professional breathing lessons, couldn't sit down on the night and, by the end of the evening, had intense indentations in her stomach and back
When Kim Kardashian arrived at the 2019 Met Gala wearing a next-level fitted Mugler dress, we couldn't help but stop and stare. Aside from gawking at Kim's insane hourglass figure, another part of us couldn't help wondering just HOW any person could fit into a dress with such a tiny waist.
Some speculated that Kim went so far as to have her ribs removed to wear the item (!!), but instead the star donned a hectic corset that was fastened so tight, it took three fully grown men to fasten it up (watch the intense clip here) and left her unable to sit down once it was on.
If you think all that sounds pretty full-on, Kim also had to take professional breathing lessons from Mr. Pearl beforehand to ensure she could actually survive the red carpet.
Now, two months after the Met Gala, Kim has spoken about what the corset actually did to her body despite all that preparation, and it sounds suuuper uncomfortable.
“I have never felt pain like that in my life” Kim told WSJ Magazine, before adding that the corset left physical marks on her torso after it was removed.
“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.
While the whole corset ordeal sounds utterly cray, Kim's personal trainer Melissa Alcantara also came to her defence on Instagram, explaining how hard Kim works to get her body (and waist):
“To make things clear 1. This dress is corseted BUT 2. Kim trains her ass off 6 days a f— week, she wakes up early af and is dedicated. 3. I paved the road for her but SHE did the work! I love compliments either way,” Alcantara said.
“I don’t give a s— about your opinions on her body if you think she fake or not! I see her every morning, I see her train and I see her sweat and I see all the work she does outside of the gym and THAT is commendable!”
Safe to say, this outfit certainly got people talking.
