Kim Kardashian tweeted these photos on August 2 (Instagram)Another week, another two new bikini photos of Kim Kardashian! On Thursday, the reality TV star posted a pair of self-portraits to Twitter in which she was wearing a revealing brown string bikini with gold embellishments. She labeled the first photo "pool time." The second, tweeted soon after, was tagged, "#nofilter #nophotoshop."
Is it us or is the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star a bit obsessed with sharing her swimsuit photos with the world?

Skimming her Twitter feed over the last month, she's shared at least six bathing suit pics. Unlike the new ones — snapped in what appears to be a very fancy bathroom — the others were taken in more exotic locations. On July 15, Kanye West's lady love posted a va-va-voom shot of her sporting a one-piece with a plunging neckline and black-and-white stilettos. "Good morning Miami," she wrote alongside the shot, which was taken on a yacht. (Good thing it wasn't snapped on a beach — we don't think she'd get far in those heels!) A few days earlier, she tweeted a vintage photo from a 2009 calendar shoot that took place in Cabo San Lucas. In the pic, Kim strikes a sexy pose in which she's standing on a bed with her arms over her head while the sun comes up in the background. "Sunrise summertime shoot," she wrote, again noting that the image was not photoshopped.

Based on the frequency in which she shares these racy shots (and brags that they are not photoshopped), one would think Kim, 31, is completely at ease with her famously voluptuous body, but that doesn't seem to be the case. During an appearance on the U.K. web series "Lorraine" in June, she was asked if she was comfortable with her curves and had a hard time answering the question. "I think so, for sure," she said before changing her answer. "Well, no, I'm such a perfectionist. I don't think I'm ever really comfortable."
She also talked about how her thighs are her biggest insecurity, saying, "I still have some cellulite." She also noted that Spanx is "the greatest invention."
One would also assume that if she's endlessly posting photos of herself in various states of undress, she must be getting nothing but encouragement after she posts each picture, right? Not necessarily. On the more recent images, there are comments from Instagram users like capetownsista, who wrote, "Why do you feel the need to take pics of yourself and post it? So many of you out there as it is. I'm just saying." And marc20031987 commented, "Very nice but slightly attention seeking."
That's not to say that all the feedback is bad. amberfox07, who is on Team Kim, wrote, "It's pictures like this that reassure girls that being skin and bones is not always sexy! Props Kim!!!" And Mattybee23 was so inspired that he proposed: "MARRY ME."
