"Palm Springs disposable 2020," she captioned the photo.

Fans loved the photo, with one user writing, "You're so amazing, Kourt!"

"You look stunning!" another wrote, while many others simply commented with fire emojis and heart eyes.

Kourtney is known for her bikini snaps, but the star doesn't often share unedited photos.

It comes after Kourtney and her new beau Travis Barker, have reportedly discussed the "possibility of getting engaged and married".

The pair has been friends for years, but began dating in December with a source telling Entertainment Tonight, "Kourtney hasn't felt this strongly about anyone in a while and can see a forever with Travis."

"Although the couple hasn't been together for a while, they've known each other for years and have a strong connection. Kourtney's family hasn't seen her this happy in a while and they love Travis.

"The couple's kids get along great and that has made things much easier for them."

It's quite rare for any of the Kardashian sisters to share unedited snaps, with a photo of Khloe Kardashian recently circling the Internet with many praising it for being unedited. 

The picture had only been uploaded briefly before being taken down, but not before fans could screenshot it and share it widely.

The Kardashians ended up threatening legal action after the photo was posted "by mistake" on Instagram last month.

Even some Twitter accounts that shared the image were suspended, facing legal threats if the photo was not removed.

"The colour edited photo was taken of Khloé during a private family gathering and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant," Tracy Romulus, chief marketing officer for KKW Brands, told Page Six in a statement. 

"Khloé looks beautiful but it is within the right of the copyright owner to not want an image not intended to be published taken down."

The move from Team Kardashian left some on social media stunned, as many people praised how "beautiful" and "natural" Khloé looked in the image, which was not heavily edited like most KarJenner pics.

"The photo that was posted this week was beautiful," Khloe later said in a statement on Instagram. "But as someone who has struggled with body image her whole life, when someone takes a photo of you that isn't flattering in bad lighting or doesn't capture your body the way it is after working to hard to get it to this point - and then shares it to the world - you should have every right to ask for it not to be shared - no matter who you are."

She said the "pressure, constant ridicule and judgment" on her body her entire life "has been too much to bear", before going on to detail some of the examples of remarks made about the way she looks, such as 'Khloé is the fat sister', 'Khloé is the ugly sister', 'Her dad must not be her real dad because she looks so different', 'The only way she could have lost that weight must have been from surgery'.

"You never quite get used to being judged and pulled apart and told how unattractive one is, but I will say if you hear anything enough then you will start to believe it," Khloe continued.

"This is how I have been conditioned to feel, that I am not beautiful enough just being me."

Khloe said that she uses filters and photo edits, the same way she wears makeup or gets her nails done, to "present myself to the world the way I want to be seen," adding that "it's exactly what I will continue to do unapologetically."

She concluded, "My body, my image and how I choose to look and what I want to share is my choice. It's not for anyone to decide or judge what is acceptable anymore."
