Kendall Jenner shared her body image struggles after her SKIMS photoshoot was heavily criticized. The 25-year-old supermodel took part in the shoot alongside sisters Kim Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner for the shapewear brand's Fits Everybody Valentine's Day collection.

The trio shared a series of images and videos on social media and Kendall wrote alongside a snap in which she wore a SKIMS straight neck underwired bra and micro thong, and captioning it: Vday is coming.

Which is what prompted the model to explain that even she has off days too, in a tweet.
