The Kardashian-Jenners are known for their tiny waists, curvaceous bodies, perfectly poreless skin and plump lips. A quick look at any of their Instagram accounts is evidence of that. But, it's long been a topic of debate about whether the family (who are known to have undergone plastic surgery and enhancements, as well as edit their photos), are promoting unattainable beauty standards.

But now, Kim Kardashian has weighed in on the argument. After being asked during the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion special if the family thought they'd created an unattainable standard of beauty, Kim said: "No, I don't. Because I think we get up, we do the work. We work out."

Kendall Jenner also gave her thoughts on the topic, telling viewers "we all really enjoy taking care of ourselves and being healthy, so I think if anything, the only thing we're really trying to represent is just being the most healthy version of yourself."

While the family certainly do post workout clips and gym selfies on socials, critics still argue that they haven't achieved their looks though exercise alone. Body positivity activist Jameela Jamil has frequently spoken out against the beauty standards that the Kar-Jenners perpetuate.

In an Instagram post, Jameela said: "Let's be real. Their surgeons reshaped the beauty industry. People buy make up to try to look like people who were carved and injected to look like that. Which is fine. But it would be helpful for that transparency to be more accounted for to avoid disappointment."

She continued, "I’m not anti surgery. I am pro transparency."
