    You might remember that, in a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim and Kanye argued the night before the prestigious fashion event over Kim's outfit choice.

    Speaking about Kim's dress, Kanye said that it affects him when "pictures [of Kim] are too sexy".

    "I didn't realise that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone that's married and loved, the father of what's about to be four kids," Kanye said. "A corset is a form of underwear. It's hot. It's like, it's hot for who, though?"

    However, Kim didn't budge, telling Kanye he was the one who'd "built [her] up to be this sexy person and have confidence" in the first place.


    "Just because you're on your journey and you're on a transformation, doesn't mean that I'm in the same spot with you," she said, referencing Kanye's new relationship with religion and Christianity.

    Talking about the disagreement in an interview on The Real, Kim revealed that she was compromising with Kanye and his new-found beliefs.


    "I think, at the end of the day, that's what marriage is. He's going to do things that I don't agree with and I support him and vice versa," Kim said. "With this, it was like we were having this conversation of just what is too much, and I am a mother of four, I am gonna be 40 next year, like when is it time to…"

    Her sentence was then cut off as the audience gave a round of applause.

    Now, Kim has expanded on her thoughts, revealing in a recent interview with Vulture that she has had an "awakening" when it comes to expressing her sexuality.

    "I realized I could not even scroll through Instagram in front of my kids without full nudity coming up on my feed pretty much all the time," Kim continued, adding that her recent visits to the White House had also made her re-evaluate her stance.

    Kim added: "I also did think, like, 'Okay, I’m here in the White House and then the next day I was posting, like, a crazy bikini selfie.' And I was thinking, 'I hope they don’t see this. I have to go back there next week.'"

    In fact, Kim went as far as to suggest that being overtly sexy in the past was, at least in part, down to "keeping up", although with what she didn't clarify.

    In conclusion, Kim said that toning it down was more about living in the present rather than worrying about what to post on Instagram next.
