Despite the fact that she came under fire earlier this week for allegedly Photoshopping a recent Instagram post, reality TV starlet Kim Kardashian returned to the photo sharing site yesterday to show off her gorgeous figure in a yellow bikini.

“#OurLovelyLadyLumps,” Kardashian captioned the photo above, which shows her sunbathing topless next to a friend showing off her baby bump.

The image that caused controversy earlier this week was a throwback photo that showed a very slender Kim walking the red carpet in a white dress.

“Throwback to a few years ago #SkinnyDays #OnTheTreadmillRightNOW,” she wrote.

However, Buzzfeed found the original photo and it was clear that quite a few adjustments had been made. The image was flipped and Kardashian’s outfit was altered, with the dress’s zipper completely removed from the back.

Additionally, her waste and arm appear to have been slimmed, her nose and breast reshaped and the skin on the back of her lower thigh smoothed.

It’s not clear if Kim altered the image herself, or found it online already retouched by someone else, but she has opted to leave the photo up on her Instagram and refrain from commenting.
