KIM Kardashian has become known for flaunting her world-famous curves no matter where she is or what she is doing.
But according to a body language expert, the Hulu star’s vacation snaps reveal she is feeling “less self-assured” and has a “desire to hide” as her ex parades his new wife around Italy.

Kim, 43, has been photographed on beach and poolside vacations countless times.
Usually, the mega-influencer wears revealing bathing suits and barely-there bikinis.
But in Turks and Caicos this month, the mom of four was snapped wearing clothes that covered her famous butt.
And body language expert Judi James says her ex-husband’s headline-making travels may be the reason.
Kanye West, 45, and his 28-year-old wife have had paparazzi on their heels during their controversial Italian getaway.
Since August, Bianca Censori’s barely-there outfits and her husband’s antics have continued to stun the world.
In an exclusive interview, James told The U.S. Sun: “The constant photos of Bianca and Kanye in Florence have probably been haunting Kim.
“In her vacation photos, she looked vulnerable.
“Bianca wears extreme versions of some of the same styles Kim used to wear when she was with Kanye.”
Now Kim has shifted in another direction, starting to wear cover-ups on her vacations.
“She has chosen girl-next-door pink and blue swimwear,” James said.
“She covered her butt on the beach, which suggested a crisis of confidence.
“During her July vacation in Idaho, too, Kim covered her most famous asset — her butt.”
Kim’s beach adventures in Turks and Caicos saw her opt for different colored swimwear.
After paddleboarding alone on September 2, she was photographed in a blue bikini, walking with her head bowed.
James speculated that Kim’s fashion choice showed a lowered confidence.
“The further Kanye goes to shock, the further Kim goes in the opposite direction,” she said.

“This suggests an erosion of her confidence.
“Kim’s head is down in the Turks and Caicos photo. Her arms are held out to her sides.
“This is a cut-off ritual that suggested a desire to not attract attention.
“She wore pants that are a million miles away from the micro-tiny bikini bottoms.
“The body is unmistakably Kim Kardashian, but it is not being shown off with the usual flair.”
The next day, September 3, the Skims founder was photographed wearing a pink bikini.
James noted this time, Kim’s “touch gestures” showed she was less self-assured.
“Kim’s body language in the pink bikini threw up signals of being more shy than usual,” she said.
“Her smile was also aimed over her shoulder.

“Kim’s back was arched to suggest body confidence but then she rearranged her bikini.
“The constant clothing touches suggest inner shyness or a lack of total confidence.”
The Kardashians star has been spending time vacationing over the past months.
Since divorcing Kanye in November 2022, Kim has been packing in time away with friends and family.
This includes her four kids, North, 10; Saint, seven; Chicago, five; and Psalm, three.
In July Kim took North on a boat in Idaho where she owns a five-bed, six-bath, property.
James claimed it was here that Kim started showing a need to conceal.

“Kim did not want to be this sex goddess in Idaho,” said James.
“While Bianca’s vacation fashion efforts were for attention, Kim signaled a desire to hide.
“In Idaho, her top was tied around her waist and she wore black cover-up cropped pants.
“It even looked like Kim was in denial about her legendary appeal.
“Her cleavage was covered by the strap of her bag, and her facial features were thrown into the shadow by the cap peak.
“This cover-up nodded only slightly to her body shape, but again suggested this crisis of confidence.”
Kim’s summer vacation fashion is a far cry from the looks on her social media feeds.
On Instagram through July and August, the billionaire influencer continued to pose up a storm.

Kim’s page features butt-baring selfies. James said others ooze body confidence.
James continued: “Kim’s poses shown on social media poses are supremely confident.
“You can always see an iconic range of Goddess body language poses.
“Kim allows her body to be admired and honored like an immobile work of art.
“There are no attempts to conceal any parts of her body.
“But away from social media and some of Kim’s confidence signals are going backward.
“This has been since her marriage to Kanye fell apart and the arrival of Bianca Censori.
“Offline, Kim has become less self-assured when it comes to her image.”
