Finally I can share with you guys this project that I have been developing for the last year. I've been passionate about this for 15 years. Kimono is my take on shapewear and solutions for women that actually work. I would always cut up my shapewear to make my own styles, and there have also been so many times I couldn't find a shapeware color that blended with my skin tone so we needed a solution for all of this. The third pic is the solution short. I developed this style for all of those times I wanted to wear a dress or skirt with a slit and still needed the support. Introducing Kimono Solutionwear for every body. Coming Soon in sizes XXS - 4XL in 9 shades. I can't wait for you to feel this fabric!#KimonoBody @kimono Photos by Vanessa Beecroft A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

The photos, taken by Vanessa Beecroft, show Kardashian and several models wearing designs from the collection. Kardashian said the line was inspired by her own need for unique shapewear designs, which led her to create a half-brief, half-short combo to wear with thigh-high slits.

"Finally I can share with you guys this project that I have been developing for the last year. I've been passionate about this for 15 years," Kardashian captioned the post. "Kimono is my take on shapewear and solutions for women that actually work."

"I would always cut up my shapewear to make my own styles, and there have also been so many times I couldn't find a shapewear color that blended with my skin tone so we needed a solution for all of this," she said. "Introducing Kimono Solutionwear for every body. Coming Soon in sizes XXS - 4XL in 9 shades."

Kardashian said on Twitter her husband, rapper and designer Kanye West, created the Kimono logo, which features a chunky, all-caps font.
