Kendall Jenner has caused a stir online after appearing in a campaign for her sister, Kim Kardashian’s, shapewear company, Skims.

The 25-year-old posed in a sexy bra and a matching red ‘micro thong’, showing off her incredible physique alongside her two sisters, 40-year-old Kim and 23-year-old Kylie Jenner.

Touted as the ‘sexiest’ Skims collection yet, the sisters certainly lived up to the hype, with Kim spraying whipped cream on her finger and licking it off and Kylie crawling around on all fours with a heart-shaped lollipop in her mouth.

However, it was supermodel Kendall that really got tongues wagging online with many calling her a "goddess" and others accusing her of "promoting unrealistic body standards”.

Instagram account Problematic Fame wrote: "This photo is very photoshopped. Kendall is obviously very gorgeous but these are not her real proportions, nor are they anybody's.

"Please don't compare yourself to heavily edited images. Even Kendall doesn't look like this irl."

Others agreed, calling for the ‘ridiculous Photoshop’ to stop.

One fan posted on Twitter: "I got 99 problems and looking like Kendall Jenner would solve all of them”, to which Kendall replied: "I am an extremely lucky girl. appreciative of all that i have. but i want you to know i have bad days too and that i hear you! you are beautiful just the way you are!!! it's not always as perfect as it may seem."

Kendall has previously spoken out about her own body insecurities, in an interview with The Telegraph.

"My sisters are a lot curvier than me," she said.

"They have boobs, and I don't have boobs. Growing up being this little twiggy girl, I saw my sisters and always thought 'oh no am I supposed to be more sexy like them?' I almost felt like I didn't fit in for a part of my life."

She added that she eventually learned to love her own body and her different personality.

"I like that I have a different vibe to everyone," she said.

"I like to do different things. And that's okay."

Meanwhile, Kendall’s famous sisters loved her Skims shoot, with Khloe commenting on her Instagram photos: "I just don't even understand… How are you a living human? You're soooooooo stunning I can't take it."

Kylie called her sister 'perf' while Kim joked with fans to remind her to never do a photoshoot with a supermodel again.
