No one is going to make Kourtney Kardashian feel bad about her post-baby bikini body. On April 18, the Poosh founder exchanged a few words with an Instagram user who suggested that her sister Kim intentionally posted a photo that depicted her body in a less than flattering light.

"Happy Birthday Queen @kourtneykardashian," Kim captioned a picture of her with Kourtney and their younger sister Khloé all matching in black bikinis. The sister trio all looked happy in the image, smiling and looking carefree with a white sandy beach and ocean blue water as a backdrop.

The SKIMS founder continued, "There’s no one on this planet that I have spent more time with and have all of the same memories with growing up than you and I cherish them all. Sharing a room and friends and cars and our lives together for four decades has been the most magical journey to have you by my side. I love you, and I can’t wait for another 45 years together! I will especially cherish this last sister trip, where all of our kids had dance parties til they passed out, the way we all did growing up! Celebrating you today and grateful to you forever for always giving the best advice a sister could possibly give!"

A user in Kim's comment section wrote, “Now you know she’s not going to like this photo… lol, it’s her bday Kim.. lol.” The Poosh founder used the comment as an opportunity to tell the world that she has absolutely nothing to be ashamed of.

“I LOVE this photo! It is me and my sisters having the best time on a trip with our kids... and the memories to last forever! And I LOVE this body that gave me my 3 big babies and my little baby boy,” Kourtney replied.

This isn't the first time that Kourtney has discussed her post-partum body. On April 8, she shared a message to her followers via her Instagram Story, telling them that the pressure to bounce back to their pre-baby bodies is unrealistic, and to be kind to themselves as a result.

“Dear new mommies,” the Poosh founder wrote. “Your body is beautiful at all stages. During pregnancy as we are glowing and growing, postpartum as we are healing and shrinking, and then that period I find the hardest, as our bodies are still adjusting. And if you're breastfeeding, that's a whole other part of it."

She concluded the post, "The pressure put on us to bounce back when everything is new and different isn’t realistic. Life is beautiful. You are beautiful. Just a little reminder (for me, too).”
