Because we're all a little obsessed.

Since Kim Kardashian's solo debut on the social scene, we've seen so much of her. Yes, we've seen some of her personality, but what I really mean is that we've seen all the rest of her, too.

It all started with her bad decision to make a sex tape with struggling and retired artist Ray J in 2002, and the rest is now history. Since then, we've seen the Kardashian in her birthday suit quite often.

And with those selfies and photo shoots, seeing Kim Kardashian naked doesn't come as a surprise to us much anymore.


However, whether she's mildly naked or just showing off on Instagram, it appears that she does have a favorite part of herself to put in the spotlight. And that would be her butt, which seemed to be a favorite of hers even before she had a "bubble booty."

The most interesting part of it all? As you go through these many Instagram pictures we found of Kardashian, you can totally see the transformation that she — along with her butt — have gone through over the years.

So without any further interruption, here is Kim Kardashian's butt transformation before your very eyes, presented through her Instagram photos over the years.

1. In 2014, Kardashian broke the internet.

And she did it with special assistance from her famous backside. Who could forget when Kardashian appeared on the cover of Paper Magazine in 2014, where she bared it all? (You know, that one... with the champagne.)

In fact, 2014 was a record year for Kardashian and especially for her backside, which she put on full display in magazine shoots (here's another), as well as on her own personal Instagram page.


One snap even featured an appearance from Blac Chyna and her own infamous booty. Yes, back before the Kardashians and Blac Chyna had a weird family dynamic going on, they were booty buddies.

So, obviously Kardashian has her backside to thank for making 2014 a record-breaking year for her.

2. Kardashian reached an Instagram milestone in 2015.

And what better way to celebrate it than with a few belfies? In early 2015, Kardashian took to Instagram to thank her followers for reaching 27 million. In the snap's caption, she wrote, "27 mil!!!!! Thank you so much!!!! I love you all!!!!!" And, of course, the post featured Kardashian's most famous asset.


In May 2015, Kardashian posted a photo letting her fans know that she was leaving Brazil after a short trip. Yeah, she's just chillin' regular, but to be honest, her butt can't help but steal the show.

3. Even when covered, you can't miss Kardashian's butt.

And even when she's literally all covered up, her butt continues to be the butt of her jokes and sometimes even certain major successes. 


"Welcome to the good life," in the words of Kim's genius-gone-mad husband, Kanye West. Speaking of West, he can't seem to keep his hands off his wife and her booty. Kardashian posted the above photo in 2016 to demonstrate that point.

What more is there to say? Now, we know what type of stuff she and West are into. 

4. Kardashian obviously likes to hang out at the pool... a lot.

And why not? It gives her even more chance to rock some awesome bathing suit selfies. And yes, yes. Sometimes even Kim Kardashian covers up at the pool like normal folks... so long as her booty can be seen!


In a series of snaps from September 2016, Kardashian enjoyed some downtime at the pool with friends. And while she was wearing a bathing suit, she still wasn't afraid to show off them booty gains.

5. And she's still proudly displaying her infamous booty.

Kardashian hasn't slowed down at all with the butt pics and, let's face it, she probably never will. In summer 2019, she posed on a boat during another one of her whirlwind trips, this time to Costa Rica.
