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.

Fans were taken aback by her enviably slim figure with older sister Khloe asking in the comments, 'How are you a living human being?' however the snap irked many on social media who accused Kendall of promoting an unhealthy body image. Which is what prompted the model to explain that even she has off days too, in a tweet.
