julia angel@jo0ge@KimKardashian Girl, the bikini pics were beautiful. That's what we need to see more of--a woman's natural beautiful body and imperfections.
Others, however, were predictably brutal with their opinions.

Kim later claimed during an appearance on The View that some of the images circulating had been photoshopped to "make them look worse".
Kim said: "I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip to Mexico, and people were photoshopping and sharpening them to make them look way worse. I definitely was not in my best shape. I hadn't worked out in about 12 weeks, I'd had two surgeries on my uterus. I was like, 'OK, I need to get it together.'"
She said: "I'm already having an anxiety attack over security. I'm already on high alert. And now the paparazzi has found us. Just the scrutiny that we get all the time, I was trying to avoid that. I thought,'OK, we're going on a private vacation, I'm not posting [photos to social media], I'm doing all the steps to try to be as private and discreet as possible."
And she said she was fearful of people body-shaming and criticising her, describing the scrutiny she faces each day as "frustrating".E!
She said: "They [the paparazzi] take pictures, and if they're not perfect people just body-shame and criticise you. And for people to think that's OK, it's just so frustrating."
Well, I think we can all agree that Kim looked amazing.
