Kardashian, 35, caught wind of the gossip and posted an explanation on her website. “Another day, another crazy rumor! Apparently, I was caught wearing butt pads,” she wrote on Friday, July 1. “Here’s what really happened: A couple years ago, I wore a skirt in Miami that was totally sheer. I had no idea it was SO see-through on my butt. I definitely never want that to happen again, so now I always wear shapewear.”

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star even has a go-to body wrap that she uses: The Bare Necessities Firm Control High-Waist Capri retails for $52.

“So, the fact is: I don’t wear butt pads!” Kardashian added. “At this point, I think everyone has seen my butt naked and knows I don’t need them, LOL!”

The Selfish author has never been one to keep her style secrets, well, a secret. Back in April, she revealed that sometimes she wears multiple body shapers at once. “Sometimes I wear two pairs of body shapers on top of each other — especially when I am heavier, I def double it up,” she wrote on her app at the time. “They really hold you in and make you feel secure!”
