Washington: Kim Kardashian has confessed that she had shared her swimsuit picture on Instagram because she was determined to show the results of her post-baby slim down to silence her critics.

On `The Tonight Show` with Jay Leno, the 33-year-old reality TV star admitted that it was very hard to read stories about her weight-gain, which changed the way she was in public, even though she was only gaining weight because she was pregnant, Contactmusic reported.

The `Keeping Up with the Kardashians` star also claimed that she was just trying a bathing suit one day and sent a photo of it to her now-fiance, Kanye West and asked him if she could post this, as it would be a big "middle finger" to everyone who called her fat.

Kardashian said that she made sure to ask her then-boyfriend Kanye West for permission to upload the image before getting her revenge online.
