“Does my bum look big in this?” is a question most men dread because no answer is the right answer. 

Unless you’re Kim Kardashian who will always want the answer to be “YES”. 

Kim Kardashian West, who is married to rapper and fashion designer Kanye West, is famous for her bootylicious bottom. 

The 38-your-old reality TV star and business woman didn’t always have the full curvaceous bottom she now sports.

It has in fact taken many different forms over the past few years. 

How anyone can still question whether or not she’s had plastic surgery done is beyond me.

There’s no way your butt can change so dramatically from one year to the next without surgical intervention.

If you’ve gained weight, then sure, there’s a possibility. But would your waist remain slim or get even thinner? I don’t think so. 

When Kim first came on to the scene after the leaked sex tape with then boyfriend Ray J, her bottom was pretty much “normal” size - nothing outrageous nor none existent. 

The bigger her name and the "Keep up with the Kardashians" became, so did her derriere. 

In 2011, after a very brief marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries, there was a noticeable growth in the size of her booty.

By the time Kim appeared on the cover of Paper Magazine in 2014 her bum was so abnormally large, that it broke the internet. It was undeniable that she had some work done on it giving a whole new meaning to “apple bottom”.

Unfortunately for Kim, the paparazzi snapped pics of her on holiday in Mexico and published un-airbrushed and unattractive images showing her not so great looking cellulite dimpled and sagging butt in a skimpy bikini. It looked like it needed a touch up of whatever she had been doing to keep it perky. 2017 wasn’t a good year for her bum. 

Kim now seems to be as motivated as ever to maintain and show off her well rounded, extraordinary, voluptuous booty however and whenever she can.

I have to wonder just how far she’s going to take this obsession with having such an unnaturally over-sized butt and what it will look like in the next five years.
