Kim Kardashian has denied claims she dressed her four-year-old daughter North in a corset, saying the dress she wore is made of soft fabric.
The reality star was criticised online for dressing the child in an orange slip dress with what appeared to be a white lace-up corset over the top.
Kardashian defended the choice, saying in a video that she thought the dress was “really cute”.
In the short clip she touches the clothing to show it is not a boned corset but soft material layered over the dress.

She said: “This dress, that I did not design, I actually bought, is not a corset.
“It’s just fabric on the front that looks like it. I think it’s really cute.
“I bought it from a designer and it’s just fabric people, it’s not a real corset.”
One fan had written on Twitter: “who the hell put a corset on north??” while another said: “North west wearing a “corset”? Let the child be a child.”
