At 5 feet 2½ inches, Kim Kardashian’s height is not up to the average height of women in the United States of America. She is certainly not the tallest of women in her country as various credible reports have it that the average height for women in the North American nation is 5 feet 3 inches (1.62 m). Nevertheless, in countries like The Philippines and Guatemala where the average height for women is respectively 4 feet 10.89 inches (1.50 m) and 4 feet 10.84 inches (1.49 m), Kim might be considered a tall woman.

Apart from Kourtney Kardashian who stands at 5 feet 1 inch (1.55 m), Kim is the least tall among the Kardashian-Jenner sisters.

In all, Kim Kardashian’s height hasn’t made her less of the woman she has become. In fact, many would agree it’s a perfect height for her curvaceous figure.

9. The American Socialite Currently Weighs 120 Pounds (54.4 kg)

Kim Kardashian’s weight has fluctuated over the years but through it all, she has maintained her hourglass figure as much as she has kept up with her high-flying lifestyle. At some point, it was reported that she weighs 143 pounds (65 kg) but the model has always endeavored to maintain decent body weight through regular workouts and a protein-heavy diet.

After delivering her child, North West, she was able to regain her pre-pregnancy body. The model shared that she had gained 50 pounds and that it was tough getting rid of it.

In a 2010 episode of her famous family show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, she had her butt X-rayed to prove it’s natural with no implants. Also, she once explained that she has a bump on her nose which seems to be prominent in some of her pictures, even to her. Given that, Kim understands why people believe she got a nose job. However, the famous media personality has insisted that she has never had her nose done.
