Kim Kardashian West laughs off butt pad rumours

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star insists she has never needed to wear the derriere-enhancing item but admits to always wearing "shapewear".

Writing on her website, she explained: "A couple years ago, I wore a skirt in Miami that was totally sheer. I had no idea it was SO see-through on my butt. I definitely never want that to happen again, so now I always wear shapewear.

"Sometimes, they have a sheer cutout like these capris from Body Wrap, so that's actually what you're seeing in the picture at the top.

"So, the fact is: I don't wear butt pads! At this point, I think everyone has seen my butt naked and knows I don't need them, LOL! (sic)"

And the 35-year-old television personality previously revealed she spends two hours on her beauty routine every day.

Speaking about the daily process, she said: "I thought you guys might like a little peek into my daily glam routine. I do make-up and hair for about two hours every day! It's actually a great time for me to catch up on work emails, take some calls and see what you guys are up to on social media."

And Kim - who has North, three, and six-month-old Saint with her husband Kanye West - donned a full face of make up when she gave birth to her eldest child.

Speaking previously about her make-up routine for when she went into labour, she said: "I think right now it's more about nontouring, like real skin with less make-up on it. I'm trying to wear less. My husband loves me without make-up. For my first baby I gave birth in full make-up, but none for my second."
