Kim Kardashian posts bikini selfie after vowing to cut back on sexy photos for sake of children

Kim Kardashian may have vowed to lay off the overtly sexy snaps in the new year but that won't stop the reality star from throwing up a bikini shot every now and then.

The 39-year-old mother posted a sizzling shot of her in a bubblegum pink bikini while sitting on the floor of her closet packing for a trip:

Always packing

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on Jan 14, 2020 at 11:53am PST

"Always packing," she captioned the shot.

Kardashian sported black shield sunglasses and pulled her hair in a high, half-up ponytail.

Fans also caught a glimpse of Kim's famous closet in the reflection of the mirror which showed bikini tops and bottoms tossed around the floor and an array of color-coded garments hanging up that screamed of glamour, glitter and silk.

Kardashian was quoted last November in the The Cut speaking about her desire to pull back on posting provocative shots to her Instagram in the coming decade:

"I have kind of had this awakening myself. 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 ... I think I’m evolving to where I don’t feel the need to want to keep up. Not that I did it to feel like I had to keep up, but I guess I just don’t care as much anymore to want to take tons of photos in a thong bikini."

The comments came in light of backlash from an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that had aired the month before.

In the episode, Kardashian's husband, Kanye West, commented on his wife's 2015 Met Gala dress by Thierry Mugler that made headlines due to how cinched the star's waist appeared.

"I didn't realize that that was affecting, like, my soul and my spirit as someone that's married and loved, and the father of, like, now what about to be four kids ... You are my wife and it affects me when pictures are too sexy," West said on camera.

Kardashian hit back at her husband in disagreement explaining that "Just because you're on a journey, and you're on your transformation doesn't mean that I'm in the same spot with you."
