Kim Kardashian is standing behind her decision to style daughter North West in a corset-style dress.
When photos emerged of the 5-year-old’s outfit for a New York City outing, social media users dubbed the style inappropriate.

But Kardashian, 37, is standing by her decision. She took to social media to inform fans that she would never put her young child in a waist trainer.
“This dress that I did not design, I actually bought, is not a corset it’s just fabric on the front,” she said in a video Wednesday. “So, I think it’s really cute, I bought it from a designer and it’s just fabric people, it’s not a real corset.”

She also tweeted: “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.”
The corset North was sporting looked eerily similar to a waist trainer, a product her mom and aunts Kylie Jenner, Kourtney, and Khloe are known to promote via their social media pages.
This is the second time this week that Kim has defended herself on social media. She was forced to deny drug use after a Twitter user wrongly claimed to have detected cocaine on a table in the background of one of her Snapchat photos.
“I do not play with rumors like this so I’m gonna shut it down real quick. That’s sugar from our candy mess from Dylan’s candy shop,” she tweeted.

She later clarified that the white lines were the marble pattern of the table.
