Kim Kardashian has sparked backlash on social media after sharing a picture that commenters have dubbed "insane".

The 43-year-old reality TV star - known for breaking the internet with her pictures - raised eyebrows with her Instagram post, shared on Tuesday (February 27).

The snaps reveal Kardashian sporting a figure-hugging corset from Mugler that shows off her sculpted waist and accentuates curves - displaying an hourglass look.

She topped off the strapless look by going for a natural base, only donning some mascara and clear gloss on her lips. She also pulled her dark hair back and posed barefoot.

Check out Kardashian's post below:

Many fans took to the social media platform to slam the mom-of-four for wearing the extremely restrictive undergarment, with one critic writing: "Yessss, let’s set more unrealistic standards and expectations for women."

Another argued: "What a terrible example for women and her daughters," while someone else voiced their concerns, writing: "This is insane."

A third user chimed in: "We all understand the power of influencers and marketing and making money of pictures, however to someone who has daughters herself, is that something that you want them to look up to?"

A fourth contended: "She needs help if she thinks this looks right," and a fifth added that the SKIMS found "looks f***ing ridiculous," questioning: "Don’t you have a mirror?"

Meanwhile, others compared her to her ex-husband Kanye West's current wife Bianca Censori and also highlighted her resemblance to her six-year-old daughter, Chicago West.

The uproar surrounding Kardashian's post comes a few days after actress Anya Taylor Joy was blasted for "normalizing starvation" with her Dune: Part Two premiere look on February 25.

The 27-year-old actress shared photos on Instagram of her fitting with the fashion house Maison Margiela, including a black and white photo showcasing her cupping her breasts and revealing tiny figure.

The post was quickly inundated with negative comments from many of the actress' 10.2 million followers, as one user harshly said: "Rough. Expected better from you tbh. Thinness isn’t chic," while a second added: "I am really uncomfortable with the first picture.... Why ? Why ???? Why??????"

Amid the criticism, a few defended Taylor-Joy, emphasizing her right to express herself freely. "I believe you’re remarkable individuals and a positive representation of humanity," wrote a supporter. "Nonetheless, the content being promoted through this imagery may not be conducive to wellbeing."

"Can we not normalize body shaming smaller people for fashion choices just because their choice does not work for everyone's body?" another shared.

"Maybe we should all take responsibility for our own mental health instead of blaming someone else for how we feel because of how they choose to look or dress," one more added.
