That's it, Instagram is over.

Kim Kardashian isn't exactly known for being modest and demure. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is undeniably a sex symbol and for the past 10 years she's been sharing a steady stream of risqué snaps. She even had an argument with her husband Kanye West over her 2019 Met Gala corset dress, which he deemed "too sexy". Well, it looks like Kim is taking his comments on board and she's decided to start dressing modestly.

In an interview with The Cut, Kim assessed the last decade of her life and said she's going to be making some big changes going into 2020 – starting with axing those sexy swimwear shots. "I guess I just don’t care as much anymore to want to take tons of photos in a thong bikini," she explained. "I think I’m evolving to where I don’t feel the need to want to keep up."

Kim has changed from reality star to criminal justice advocate, aspiring lawyer and mother of four. She has made several trips to the White House to speak with President Donald Trump and would like to be taken more seriously, which is another reason she feels the need to cut back on the bikini pics.

She 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."

Kim made the decision after having an epiphany whilst scrolling on Instagram. She soon realised she couldn't look at the app with her children present because of the "full nudity coming up on my feed pretty much all the time". However, she realises that is partly her doing.

She continued: "I definitely contributed to that. I mean, one of my most iconic covers was the Paper magazine one, when I was all oiled up and ripping my dress off."
