Given some of Kim Kardashian West’s fashion choices of late (Adidas snap pants over a corset? Really?) you may have mistaken her recent Snapchat showing her wearing plastic pants as a sartorial statement.
You would be wrong.
The black plastic pants – reminiscent of a good ol’ Aussie garbage bag – are actually part of her intense workout routine.
Anyone who follows a Kardashian Snapchat account – literally, it could be any of them – will know first hand just how much these girls love a good workout.
Their trainer, Don Brooks, is basically an honorary Kardashian, featuring in the daily exercise sessions from their palatial L.A. backyards. Kim doing hill sprints, Khloe doing push-ups, and Kourtney perpetually walking on the stairmaster. I swear that woman would be halfway to Australia by now if she was on flat land…
But Kim has out-Kardashian’d herself with yesterday’s Snapchat selfie in a sauna suit.
A sauna suit, for those not in the know, is a jumpsuit made out of rubber, vinyl, or plastic. The idea is that the suit traps the heat of your body as you exercise, making you sweat like a demon and therefore lose weight. From, uh, sweating.
Kim is apparently taking the lead from sister Khloe, who was snapped working out wearing a sauna suit top. In Khloe’s Snapchat, she tagged a sweaty selfie with the caption, “I did my workout in a sauna suit mind you.”
