Kendall Jenner Shared A Message To People Comparing Their Body To Hers, After A Photo Of Her In Skims Underwear Went Viral

"I am an extremely lucky girl."

The new Skims Valentine's collection has caused quite the stir online — and it has to do with Kendall Jenner.

So there's one particular photo that grabbed the internet's attention — Kendall in the "Micro Thong."

In part, the photos triggered a ton of body insecurity tweets from people.

There's a lot of content proposing disordered eating in reference to the photo, but I won't be putting that here!

Which, in turn, led to people asking others not to compare themselves to Kendall...

Idk who needs to hear this but stop comparing yourself to Kendall Jenner- she has money, surgery, lighting, photographers, editors, nutritionists, personal trainers, makeup artists etc. You have an iPhone camera. She looks unreal but that’s her job

sigh, girls you don’t have to look like kendall jenner to be beautiful + not everything you see on social media is real because even she’s had work done. She definitely is beautiful but so are you too so pls eat.

...And accusing Kendall of heavily editing her photos.

Just a reminder that the picture of Kendall is heavily photoshopped and the reason it’s making you feel shit is because you’ve never seen a real person who looks like that in your life

It looks like Kendall saw at least some of the tweets — because she actually responded.

"I am an extremely lucky girl." She wrote to one user. "I want you to know I have bad days too and that I hear you!"

"You are beautiful just the way you are!!! It’s not always as perfect as it may seem."

She also replied to a selfie saying that her tweet led to more confidence:

@usernameissoph YESSSS MA’AM 🔥🔥🔥🔥

In short, please don't think anything less of your body because of a photo of Kendall.

Making me so sad seeing people compare themselves to kendall jenner’s latest pics. We are all worthy of self love no matter what we look like, got to treat yourself w the same kindness because our minds can be so unkind sometimes :(
