Like really Kim? What is body Dysmorphia? Well its actually a mental health issue, Body dysmorphia is “the preoccupation of imagined defects in one’s appearance,” says Tom Hildebrandt, PsyD, chief of the Division of Eating and Weight Disorders at Mount Sinai Health System in New York City.

In the episode, unretouched bikini photos of Kardashian went viral online. While dealing with the fallout, she admitted that her body insecurity has increased over the years. “You take pictures and people just body shame you,” Kardashian said. “It’s like literally giving me body dysmorphia,” she also commented.

In KUWTK, Kim says that her body dysmorphia comes from all the body-shaming comments she receives from haters, trolls, and others in the general public. While negative remarks can make BDD worse, they aren’t typically the cause of the disorder, says Hildebrandt.

I would just say, Prayers are up for Kim hopefully, she doesn’t have this issue, or maybe she should just make sure her photos are retouched before they drop.
