With a tiny waist, perfectly wide hips and a perky butt – many may argue that Kim Kardashian’s body is the closest thing to perfection and luckily for those who are fans, they can get the look of Kim’s infamous butt without going under the knife.

According to BET, during the New York Fashion Week which took place recently, three designers teamed up with Swedish fashion designer, Beate Karlsson to create silicone shorts called ‘The Bum’ which are a replica of Kim Kardashian’s bum.

Speaking to the New York Post, one of the designers, Simon Saarinen said that the shorts would be an alternative to surgeries and implants which can sometimes be dangerous.

“We’re living in a time where people are ready to undergo serious and sometimes dangerous surgeries to make their butt look like hers all in the name of likes,” says Saarinen.

“Her ass is probably one of the most recognized and talked-about symbols born out of Instagram.”

While another designer, Ida Jonsson said that ‘The Bum’ was a celebration of Kim Kardashian.

“It is just as much a celebration of a woman who managed to create a multimillion-dollar brand based on her butt,” she told the publication.

According to the designers, the shorts which will be made with a mix of silicone, spandex and microfibe and will weigh 6lbs (2,72 kgs) will retail between $450 (about R6700) and $600 (R8900).

Take a look at some pictures of the shorts below.
