Kim Kardashian slammed for dressing her four-year-old daughter in “corset” in public

But reality star hits back at critics

| Updated:

We doubt that Kim Kardashian pays much attention to Katie Price (we doubt she pays much attention to anyone outside of that LA socialite bubble, to be honest).

But if she had been showing an interest in the former model, she would know that Katie was recently scolded on social media for allowing her two-year-old daughter, Bunny, to wear her lipstick.

And then the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star might’ve thought twice about dressing her own daughter in something usually worn by adults.

Kim, 36, was pictured last week taking a walk with her daughter North, and the young girl appeared to be wearing a corset over a peach-coloured dress.

The outfit didn’t sit well with fans on social media, with one writing on Instagram: “Nop…completely wrong. What was Kim thinking? Let her be a child…she’s already cute.”

Another commented: “This is a mess. Why is this baby wearing a corset????”

But just as Katie Price has had to stand up for herself on numerous occasions, Kim was forced to hit back at her critics.

Alongside a picture of her daughter’s outfit (North wasn’t wearing it on this occasion), she tweeted: “This dress I didn’t design, but I actually bought is not a corset. It’s just fabric on the front that looks like a corset. I think it’s really cute… It’s just fabric people – it’s not a real corset.

“I would never put my daughter in a corset! Relax it’s a dress I bought that is fabric that laces up and looks like a corset!”

But it seems even that explanation wasn’t enough to keep her detractors at bay.

And at this point, Rebekah Vardy – wife of England footballer Jamie – got in on the act.

The mother of two tweeted: “I’m not usually one to judge other people’s parenting choices but…..wtf?

“This is lingerie! It’s a satin negligee with a fake corset. Why would anyone dress their 4 year old daughter in this?”

Kim and her husband, rapper Kanye West, 40, have two kids – North and an 18-month-old son called Saint.

But according to reports, they’re now expecting twins. A surrogate mother is said to be carrying the babies, after doctors warned Kim against another high-risk pregnancy.
